For a stop over, we decided to choose Living Forest Oceanside Campground & RV.
Mainly the "ocean side" sites attracted us.
Staff was very friendly, and clearly explained us everything. Sites aren't that large, yet greenery allows for enough privacy. The site itself was near the "ocean", yet high above an inlet near the strait of Georgia. Apparently a lot of longer-staying guests were on the campground, walking their dogs and watching around suspiciously (curiously?) to all new-comers...
Accomodations were sufficient and clean, yet a walk away.
Because of being there in September no additional services were available.
Still a good place to stay.
