RVers and campers heading to Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands have a range of amazing experiences on offer. From the Pacific Ocean on the west coast to the quieter waters of the east coast, as well as ancient forests, mountains and heritage towns. These stunning islands provide an abundance of experiences from marine activities and fishing to wildlife viewing, golfing, hiking, wineries and more.
Getting to Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands in your RV is easy via BC Ferries from the mainland. Heading north from the ferry terminal near Victoria, stop a while in Nanaimo, Parksville or Qualicum Beach and take a walk or relax on the quiet beaches. Try a spot of fishing in Campbell River or the Courtenay/Comox area. Head across the Island and experience all that the oceanside communities of Tofino and Ucluelet have to offer.
Need a place to park your RV or motorhome, the RV parks and resorts on Vancouver Island can be searched by activities such as "fishing", "golfing" or "boating", or geographical terms such as "Port Hardy", "Quadra Island" or "Duncan".
