We came with another family, the adults stayed in the cabin and the kids slept in a tent and this worked out great! The cabin is well equipped and cozy. The general store is well stocked and has a espresso machine! We enjoyed the peace and quiet and Hornby island is a lovely place to visit. Next time we will... More

We love to return to Ford's Cove. Already stayed in a cabin with friends some years ago and in June we came for the second time to camp in our van. We got a great spot with electric hook up and were very pleased how long the hot water kept running in the shower. We truly enjoyed this peaceful campground... More

As the weather forecast for our annual mountain biking weekend was faltering, we decided to book Ford's Cove at the last minute. Not knowing what it would be like and only visiting the marina previously, we were unknowing to what lay ahead. To our surprise, the cabin was clean, well supplied and even had water treatment. It was an affordable... More

We just spent four nights camping at Ford's Cove and can't imagine a better location for ocean views, beautiful sunsets, and quiet tenting amongst the large old growth forest. Fire pits and nice sized tenting sites, an area for lawn sports, super clean washrooms/showers, chickens to give our food scraps to, and even some live music on the lawn (Tuesday... More

We just spent 3 wonderful days on Hornby Island and were so pleased to get the chance to end up at Ford's Cove campground! It was our first time on the island, and just happened to book at Ford's cove, and it was definitely a great choice. Very friendly staff, nice sites, clean bathrooms, quiet, beautiful setting for sunset views... More

Our four night stay here was as good as it gets. The store is very well stocked and has excellent prices and a great Americano. Staff were approachable and helpful, but not clingy. We had the best campsite and enjoyed the sounds of other families having fun, nothing too loud or too crammed together. If you are looking for something... More

We absolutely loved staying at Ford Cove! We had very friendly service over the phone and the gentleman gave us directions and also recommended we sign up for BCFerries Experience Card which saved us $40 in ferry costs! The campsite is quiet, cozy, with nice green space, a great view of the ocean and of the moon at night. The... More

We stayed for three nights in a clean, comfortable and spacious cabin with a full kitchen. The view from the deck and the front rooms was spectacular of the channel between Hornby and Denman Islands and the ridge of mountains on Vancouver Island. It is a quiet location at the end of the road about twenty minutes from the ferry.

The cottages are rustic just like a cottage should be but they also have every convenience. We spent several days in one of the cottages, the mattresses are really comfortable. We slept a little later than we usually do. We cooked breakfast, the kitchen is well equipped. It is so quiet and peaceful there. We have never seen the night... More

We love Hornby Island so dearly but we will NEVER again be staying at Ford's Cove. We did not feel safe, the policies are nonsensical and nobody was very helpful at all. When we showed up for our two night stay on May long weekend we were in for a few surprises! After getting no confirmation email after making our... More

Unfortunately when you did not show up on your check in date the reservation was cancelled and you lost your deposit to hold the site. We called you after the last ferry had sailed and you said you were spending the night in Parksville so we held the reservationn for you arriving early the following day. We email a confirmation...
