Reviewed yesterday NEW

Pros: Clean. Located near Westwood Lake. Cons: Abrasive owners with poor communication skills. Sites are extremely close together. Summer rates are not good considering the tiny pads. Laundry facilities require updating.

Tucked away in a residential area, Westwood Lake Campground is a wonderful surprise. Even with the advent of more full time RVers, the campground is still a warm and inviting place. Close to nature trails, fishing, beach & swimming as well as shopping and restaurants! What more could you ask for?

We camped here for a summer in an RV, it also has tenting sites. It is a 3 minute walk to the lake beach. There is a playground at the campground and at the beach. Trails around the lake are fantastic with spots to swim along the way. The campground is just a few minutes drive from downtown and not...

This campground is really well-run. Ian, Ronda and family do an excellent job and really care. Their facility has a wide variety of amenities from pleasantly situated campsites among the lovely trees to canoe and boat rentals, a common area for campers to gather, cabin rentals and even French fries and poutine! Go stay there.

These people had not been registered with us and we will always stop and question people, so we can continue to provide a safe and secure campground. There is free wifi at the front of the campsite, provided you have registered and we can tell you the password. We work hard to maintain clean bathrooms and that is the reason...

Ronda and Ian were great hosts. Especially in our situation. Vancouver Island seemed fully booked, no bed left. We had arrived on the island and had learnt, that our bed and breakfast was fully booked. Even the tourist office could not help. By chance we found the Camping Website and gave it a try. Ronda and Ian heart about our...

We booked this campsite last minute and got the last tenting spot for the weekend. The site is clean and has everything you need. The washrooms are what you expect on a campsite, functional and clean. The close location to the lake is a bonus and due to its residential location makes for a quiet spot. There is wifi, for...

“We initially had a site close to the park entrance but found it a bit busy. We asked to move and the owners were more than willing to accommodate our request. They found us the perfect spot.”
