Took our 30' 5th wheel in to this place, what a mistake. They take your money up front (must be paid in full) when booking, & you don't get it back if you cancel or change your mind (which we would have loved to do). There are 73 camping spots only 6 with full hook up & 4 of those are taken up by National Park Security. The spots for Rv's are very tight to maneuver into or out of. It is right beside the airport & I mean right beside, you can walk to the fence between the Airport & the campground office. Watched planes land & take off- so very noisy.
It is an old place with all gravel roads, no grass but on the golf course & very drab campsites.
Picnic tables need a lot of work & each campsite should be racked to pick up the garbage, like bottle caps , cigarette butts etc, beer bottles etc.
Signs posted say slow to 20km & no dust, but the staff drives around on their golf carts at top speed making more dust than the tourists.
Some of the staff is very rude & unaccommodating. (make sure you are out of your spot at 11am exactly) Asked if gate could be opened before 7am (closed from 11pm - 7am) as we had reservations on the ferry. Was told that their staff needed to have their 8hrs of sleep so we would have to either leave the night before or park at the gate & wait for it to be opened.
Washrooms are disgusting & filthy & so are the showers (only 2 for so many campers). Saw a line up of 12 people waiting at 8am. They have laundry facilities - 1 washer & dryer which I don't think have been cleaned in ages. I took a walk around the restaurant, office & other buildings right near our campsite, Christ what a bloody mess, garbage every where, beer cans, plastic, ice cream wrappers, etc., and this campground is right in the Pacific Rim National park. The staff just seems to run around on their golf carts not doing much, maybe they should get the garbage picked up.
When we booked we new that we would have to move from the 1st RV full service site to a non serviced site for 2 days as the 1st site had already been booked by someone else for 2 nights. We thought no problem it was just for 2 nights & then we could return to the same serviced site. We did move out of our site exactly at 11am & were told that the other site was empty & for us to go there. Low & behold their was still a camper in that sight, so we had to wait for over an hour for them to move to another site themselves. I don't know if these people no anything about parking a big unit but what a nightmare. We had to back way out onto another road so other people heading to the beach could get out (as the road is only single lane traffic). Then trying to get into the site we were given was extremely hard to back into as their was no place to pull forward due to the bush & other campsites that were full. The road was a dead end so you couldn't even turn around to come in, in the opposite direction. Took over 45 minutes to jockey the truck & trailer ( a total of 49'feet) around.
Got all set up when my husband walked to the office & found out that we had to move from the full service site for a tenter who wanted 15amp service. This site only has 30 & 50amp.( did not the booking staff plan correctly???) He was then told that the tenter was moving to a tenter site & we were to move back. Thus we had to even pay them the difference for moving back to the serviced site. What BS..
After all this, you think that they could have just waived the difference after all the shit we went through.
67 of the sites are strickley for tenters, & truck/campers. For these sites there are 3 portable out houses & 2 water/sink stations for getting water & washing your dishes. The out houses were so so, but the water/sink stations were deplorable. The facilities for these 67 sites were a fair distance away. There is no lighting at night for these people, which could be a safety issue, due to the fact that they have signs posted BEAR has been seen on the golf course & beware of Bears & Wolves.
When my husband took our Malamute out for a run in the bush near the gorge (benind a bank of sites) he just managed to get our dog back from rolling in HUMAN CRAP. It was every where in the bush along with toilet paper behind numerous campsites. These people where either pigs or thought it was to far to walk in the dark to the portables which were quiet a distance away.
The campground has many strict rules too: One of which is that a $50.00 charge will be levied if you leave garbage in the fire pits, your site is unkept or your are noisy.
After reading this huge list of rules, I just started laughing at how absurd, unrealistic & thought less they are. CAN'T CAN'T CAN'T.... I do agree with a lot of them but the others ????.....
The prices are way to much for what you get especially the unserviced sites $32.00, while the serviced sites are $42.00.
So my recommendation is DON'T, DON'T stay at this place.
It is a DUMP

Negatives: Rude staff, very rocky, open campsites for tenting which were hard on our gear. 11pm gate locking "curfew" felt like we were living in our parents' house again. We wondered what would happen if there was an emergency. Supposedly "great" drinking water was brown. We were forced to book two sites when one would have easily sufficed...simply a cash grab.
Comments: Our worst camping experience in Tofino...ever! We only stayed here because our favourite campground was full.
