On checking in we were greeted by a lovely and friendly lady, what a nice way to start out for the weekend. We had reserved a spot along the creek side rather than the river so there would be some shade. Unfortunately It was rather close to the entrance so we did get a bit of road noise during the...

We came to the campground with our car and tent. There werent many people around so we had plenty of space for everything. Every campsite has its own table/bench and a fireplace. The washrooms are the cleanest ive seen so far on the island (i have been to 3 this far) and the personel was very friendly. It is imporotant... More

Stayed at sooke river campground at the end of september and the weather was excellent. We really enjoyed watching the seals catching the salmon that were coming up stream to spawn. We even saw river otter enjoying the salmon as well. Eagles, Great blue herons, and Kingfishers were also there for the feast. In the early morning mist fishermen waist... More

I need three things from a campsite. This place provided all of them. 1. A warm welcome. 2. Good Wi-Fi 3. Tent pegs that go in the ground like butter and stick like molasses. We had two adults, two kids with a six man tent and everyone was happy. Lots of space. Good playground. When the four year old says... More

Dilapidated picnic tables, disorganized, dangerous run down outbuildings, this place has seen better days, no love or thought put into this place, we guess that's why it's 90% empty in the middle of the summer on a weekend. She treats you like your a hassle not a customer.

Soon after arriving at this campsite, I quickly was dealing with the camp site attendants barking rules in a rude manner. The lady on site complained about having to work 16 hrs so far and has not had dinner- I am sorry but how is this my concern or why are you complaining to me about it. BEWARE- if you... More
