Such a great long weekend with my friends. Camp ground was beautiful and the vintage looking bathroom and shower stall made the campground even more charming. Staff were helpful with hiking trails to try out and had some very cute dogs that would come and say hello. Overall really great campground. Planning on going back soon! :)

This is a smaller campground that only enhances the experience. The camp host Eric goes out of his way to ensure your comfortable and that your stay is enjoyable. The sites are meticulously maintained and the outdoor shower - OMG it is excellent!!

First time camping in a very long time and Garden Faire was a good place to start again. Lovely campground and the town "Ganges" an easy 10 minute walk on a path through a forest. The host, Eric, was very friendly and accommodating. Loved starting each morning with a good hot shower under the big tree. Shower is very private... More

Stayed here over the Labour day weekend, and wasn't impressed. We were given a pitch up a steep hill at the back of the site which, while secluded, was a pain with our fully loaded bikes. The toilets need improvement (there was no toilet paper on two occasions, and the hand sanitizer dispenser wasn't working), and the shower is ridiculously... More

I didn't stay at this campsite, but tried to make a reservation on the phone this morning around 8:00. The man I talked to was a bit curt and said he was busy and to call back at 3:00. I forgave his harried nature and called back at 3:00 as instructed. At this point he asked me to call back... More

Won't forget the incredibly accommodating and friendly service, and beautiful location. Campsites are closer together, but cool bark fences shelter you from direct view of others, so still quite private. Has everything you need. Lots of character, details around every corner make it unique and fun to explore. GREAT coffee! Just remember to donate anything for the convenience! Careful, the... More

Well maintained sites in a forested area with tall pines all around. Lovely gardens too. A short walk to the town of Ganges, you can take the Rainbow Rd or a trail through the woods to town. Relaxed place. People are respectful and friendly.

Shirley and her team provide high end hospitality and service in this enchanting campground. Let the old growth forest help you relax as you take in the wonder of the gulf islands. Garden Faire campground is highly recommended for any type of traveller wanting a premium overnight experience.

My children loved looking for the fairy houses....beautiful spot, amazing camp ground attendant- very caring and helpful. Only negative was the owners dog not very friendly with children, growled in my child's face- owner should consider tying up and keeping on leash.

What an amazing campsite. Such great attention to details and landscaping. It felt like a campsite in a fairy forest, and indeed you'll find some traces that fairies just might live there. The host, Eric, was incredibly friendly, available, and accommodating. Easy and lovely walk in to Ganges through a wooded park. I'll be back to this campsite for sure.... More
