Camping on Vancouver Island

I've compiled a survey from local Vancouver Islanders in regards to what the best camping spots are on the Island ....What do you think? Here are some thoughts from others!

Cape ScottProvincial Park - Cape Scott Park is a 22,000 hectare park at the northwest tip of Vancouver Island. The park has nearly 64km's of ocean view trails. Beach camping available at Nels Bight. It is unusually secluded even in the prime months.

Lake Nimpkish - located south of Port McNeillon Northern Vancouver Island.

Pachena Bay - Located near Bamfield, this beach is a hidden gem and prime camping. The beach is amazing!

Nitinat Lake - Located in the Carmanah Valley, this superb lake is located 70km's southwest of Cowichan Lake and 70km's from Port Alberni. Accessed by rough logging roads.

Mystic Beach - Head west from Victoria along Highway 14 past Sooke and Jordan River until you see the Juan De Fuca Marine Trail - China Creek trailhead.

Chemainus Music In The Park Series.

Come visit the Waterwheel Park on Tuesday evenings from 7pm - dusk for some live music. Admission is by donation. The 2010 schedule is as follows:
