My adult daughter and I decided to go on a mother-daughter camping trip and spent 3 nights(June 28-30) at Seal Beach - what a wonderful experience! I believe there are only 8-9 (?) sites, and a common area by the residence on the property. All sites are walk-in but it is a very short walk from the parking lot. We were on site #2 which was set in a bit from the water but still had a great ocean view - we have a larger tent and the oceanfront sites were a bit too small to accommodate our tent. We explored the 22 acres of property spending time beachcombing ,watching spectacular sunsets, and hanging out on the rocks watching the eagles, seals and otters (even had a nap out there!). Sunday night we were thrilled to hear a pod of Orcas passing nearby! I would recommend site #2 if you have a large tent, then site #3 and #4 (great oceanfront spots) for smaller tents.
Things we did: Farmers Market in the village on Saturday / Bennett Bay - Campbell Point (short hike)/ Georgina Point Lighthouse / Japanese Garden / Mount Parke - hiked Ridge trail / and my favourite - hiked Edith Point trail - this is a private property but the owner has graciously allowed the public access. We walked on the wide main trail through beautiful forest, then ventured onto one of the smaller trails and wound up out on a trail with spectacular ocean views.
We were both sorry to have to leave but will definitely be back to visit again!
