Cluxewe Resort and Campground – Port McNeil, BC – Campground Review

Deciding on a campground on the Northern Island was a challenge. We were unfamiliar with the area and didn’t want to be packing up and moving to a new site every couple of days. We decided on Cluxewe Resort because it checked several of our boxes.

Must have the resort needed

  • We were able to get an ocean front site, which was our top priority!
  • It had power and water. We were not sure we could make it 6 nights on just our battery
  • It was centrally located to all the adventures we had planned. 30 minutes or less to everything – Port Hardy, Port McNeil, Telegraph Cove and many of the off road trips we wanted.
  • It had a laundry room, which was important as we approached the halfway point of our trip.

Bonus items the resort offered

  • A shower house. Our trailer shower is very small and the water pressure is low. This was a welcome addition.
  • A highly rated restaurant on site if we got tired of barbecuing and dishes.
  • Access to an estuary that provided calm and easy kayaking opportunity.

Miracle Beach Provincial Park – Campbell River BC – Campground Review

Miracle Beach at High Tide

The summer of 2019 Blair and I had our first 2 week road trip to the northern portion of Vancouver Island. We intended to arrive in Nanaimo and head north to the more remote areas of the island.  Of course, BC Ferries had other plans and landed us in Victoria due to cancellations and other unfortunate events, but that’s another story. After our rough start, and a much longer drive, we arrived at Miracle Beach.

We chose this campground for a few reasons:

  • Its endless sandy beach and world famous beach combing.
  • Its proximity to Campbell River and the expected fresh seafood that comes with the area.  
  • Its central location to several hikes in the area.

During our stay we wanted to spend time in Campbell River, a day on the beach and a couple of days hiking.
