Camping in Parksville is a family favourite and earlier this summer we discovered Sunset Lanes, a new silly favourite for the family. Until today, our second visit. So bad. 12 people, 2 lanes, one game. We asked for the cosmic bowling and the attendant said...More

The lanes are quite quiet. Other than the regular league times this facility is very open to the public. There is a bar for the adults and popcorn etc. for the kids. The facility is very clean and the staff is excellent.
