Simply Spectacular Beaches, Campgrounds, Picnic sites,and Nature walks In the summer the beaches rival anything in Hawaii. Location is spectacular close to Parksville City Limits and adjacent to the great Beach resorts. You will find nothing better anywhere.

The town of Parksville should be proud of this park. The walk ways along the shore and through the park are well kept and clean and the views outstanding. We drove through the campground which was beautiful with ample room and space between campsites

When the tide is out, you can walk out on the sand forever. Lots of sand dollars... shells and of course in the summer....lots of people...

Walked from our hotel along the beach until we reached this park, and it was genuinely beautifully done. Good trails, plenty of benches and picnic tables and toilet facilities spread across Beautiful views all around, and peaceful walks. Very restful

No hook ups. Just a beautiful place to visit. There are a handful of other privately owed sites in the Parksville area that offer hook ups. They also offer a much higher per night price. Book this site early as it will sell... More
