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.

Westbay Marine Village – Victoria BC

Camping on Vancouver Island is wonderful. It is so expensive to get a trailer onto the island that, once you are there, you always find a campsite.

Westbay Marine Village is located right on Victoria’s harbour so it has spectacular views of the city. All the downtown Victoria attractions are five minutes’ drive away. If you don’t want to drive, Victoria Harbour Ferries can take you straight from the park to the heart of the city, or you can bike or walk as it is only 4 – 5 kilometres.
