The Westbay Marine Village & RV Park
Ideally situated just minutes from downtown Victoria, British Columbia is the beautiful Westbay Marine Village and RV Park. A favorite of ours now for a number of years, this Recreational Vehicle Park and Marina has been a hidden gem situated on the shores in downtown Victoria’s beautiful inner harbour area.
Westbay RV Park offers beautiful Ocean Front sites with spectacular harbour views!
Westbay RV Park is Just Minutes to Downtown Victoria
Situated directly across the Bay from downtown Victoria in the Esquimalt district, home of Western Canada’s Naval base, this park is ideally located and the closest you will find to downtown. An easy 5 minute drive to the heart of the city and all the area’s most popular tourist attractions.
As an added convenience, you can hop on one of the cities water taxi boats directly from the Marina, taking you to various popular locations along Victoria’s shoreline.
Facilities at Westbay RV Park
The park offers a total of sixty one full hook up 30 amp serviced sites to choose from, with 34 water front sites, all in various sizes to accommodate the largest of rigs. Also included with your site is free cable television and wifi service throughout the park at a very reasonable surcharge.
Washrooms are always clean, with hot showers and laundry facilities. This is a full service RV Park with friendly and helpful staff always at your service.
This has become a very popular park for campers and during the peak season, reservations are highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
Westbay Marine Village Is a Pet Friendly RV Park
As well, for those of us who bring along our pooch when camping, Westbay is happy to allow Rover into the park as long as the rules are followed regarding keeping your pet on a leash, cleaning up after and barking. There are plenty of areas to walk your dog outside the park and even a lovely oceanfront walkway you can take directly into downtown Victoria’s beautiful Inner Harbour.
We walk this every day and the scenery alone is worth the walk.
Tours and Attractions Just Minutes from the Park
Many of Victoria’s major tours and attractions are just minutes away, with many offering free pickup service and drop of service. For instance, during our recent stay, we enjoyed one the most popular attractions in the city, that being a Whale Watching Excursion. We booked with Orca Spirit Whale Watching Tours and their shuttle bus was happy to pick us up before and return us to the park afterwards.
Plentiful Marine and Land Wildlife to View
During our stay this season, we enjoyed views of deer roaming around the park, raccoons, bald eagles, Canada geese, sea otters and seals daily. Where else can you go camp in a city and have all this thrown in for free! 🙂
Dine at Westbay Village
As an added bonus, you can treat yourself to breakfast, lunch or dinner on site at Gaby’s Restaurant. A quaint restaurant in the Village, offering home cooked meals at very reasonable prices. A very popular restaurant with both locals and visitors alike.
So if your camping plans include a visit to Beautiful British Columbia and Vancouver Island. Then be sure to visit the Capital City of Victoria and reserve your campsite at Westbay Village RV Park.
Below, I have listed the Marina’s official website for your convenience, where you can access much more detailed information, park map, rates and online reservations.
Safe travels & Happy Camping!
