Kudos, Canada. Before I forget, for anyone planning for Vancouver Island, the place we stayed in Tofino, Crystal Cove, was a really nice resort. In fact, the beachfront cottages, many with hot tubs on the deck facing nightly mind-blowing sunsets over their private cove, were pretty spectacular. That being said, the RV sites, while pleasant, were kinda removed from the beach, although ours was (by request) directly across from an awesome playground, one that every local with kids that we met said they sneak into. Staff was really nice, huge library of DVD's for us to rip and free Starbucks coffee. The only real complaint was that wifi disconnected constantly and was unusable in the evenings. So, would we stay there again? Actually, no. We would probably opt for the Bella Pacifica Campground a little father up Mackenzie Beach (not to be confused with the Mackenzie Beach Resort which was rundown with RV sites waaaaaay off the beach in a back lot). So, while the front row at Bella Pacifica is tents (maybe vans) only, the next row is elevated with a nice, filtered view of the beach. Honestly, I didn't see a playground and bathrooms we saw looked "rustic," and we'd want to get some info on the wireless, next time, we'd probably opt to stay here just for the proximity to the beach and a little view from the site, plus a more "state park" feel over resorty. Of course, with that info, you can make your own decision! #Winnebago #winnebagobrave #Tofino #vancouverisland #campendium #campendiumcanada @campendium
