“Densely shaded forest with incredibly tall conifers, no electric sites, sandy beach”

Reviewed Oct 22, 2018

Overall Rating

This campground has an ethereal beauty created by towering second growth douglas fir trees that provide a nearly complete blanket of shade. Would be a perfect place to escape the heat of summer – also has a sunny sandy beach on beautiful Lake Cowichan in the day use area that would be great for swimming in July and August.

However, there are no electric sites in the campground at all and with the shade, solar is going to be useless. No info in the brochure about generator hours so presumably they are allowed; possible there could be lots of generator noise when the campground is full. If you want electric sites or dry camping in the sun, nearby Lakeview Campground offers both and also has hot showers, wifi and beach access on Lake Cowichan.

This campground is expensive for not offering any electric sites - $35 per night in peak season which runs from April 1 to Oct 31. That said, Gordon Bay PP is open all year round and the fee for camping from Nov 1 to March 29 is just $13.

Lovely new comfort stations are somewhat heated with hot showers. Water spigots throughout the campground are shut off in the off season. No sanidump here but there is a free one in the nearby town of Lake Cowichan.

We did not stay here as we rely on solar for our electricity but we did drive through in October – the campground was largely empty at that time though I imagine it is sold out in summer. 122 sites are reservable, 4 sites are available first come first served.

Cell signal was available in the park.
