A Beautifully Kept Park!
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful Park in Nanaimo, British Columbia.
I telephoned the Park the morning of our stay from out of town to see if they had a site available for the night. The attendant on the phone was very friendly and polite and said that there was one dry site available. The park is easy to find and centrally located to the City of Nanaimo BC, just 2.5 miles or 4 km to downtown and the waterfront.
Have a closer look at this short video offering a glimpse of this picturesque city located on Vancouver Island.

Living Forest Campground Amenities
After checking in, I could not help but notice how clean and well maintained this huge facility was. As well, after arriving to our assigned site, I had the feeling I was staying at one of BC’s beautiful Provincial Parks.
Clean and Spacious Campsites at Living Forest Campground
Sites were spacious, with beautiful huge trees all around, clean and well groomed. This is a full facility park, complete with tiered ocean view – full hook up RV sites. There are plenty of walking areas that lead down to the beach area and away from the Park itself. Shopping is just a few minutes walking down the entrance roadway.
Ocean View Tiered Campsites
A huge selection of campsites to suit your wants and needs. Choose from dry campsites, like the one we chose shown in the picture below, to beautiful full hook up ocean view sites.

Living Forest Campground On Site Cafe With a View
One other added bonus is a nice little Cafe located directly in the Park, complete with Patio and Ocean views!
Living Forest Cafe
Enjoy coffee, homemade muffins, ice cream and more! As well, situated on the patio is free wifi along with electrical plug-ins for your laptop. I was also struck by the amazing outhouse restroom situated close to our site. Immaculately kept, complete with flush toilet and sink with running water and electric hand dryer. Another added bonus and feature at this campground.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely Park. The staff on site were all very friendly and pets are most welcome.
