My husband and I recently stayed in a Yurt at Riverbend Resort and I have to say it was great! After looking at splurging on more expensive hotel options in the Parksville area, I am so glad we chose the Yurt instead. This was our first stay in a Yurt. The yurts offered at Riverbend are fully equipped. A nice...

From the call to ask questions, the booking, arrival, check in and throughout our stay we had polite and professional service. We stayed in the amazing log lodge, we had a well equipped kitchen with everything we needed. Both sunny areas and shady areas were available to please everyone. Such a terrific setting on a swimming area of the river,...

I come to Parksville often and have been returning to Riverbend Resort for 3 years now. The kids love the park and field in the middle of the resort. No party people and very quiet in the evenings. Last summer on Canada Day long weekend the resort was packed, but as soon as the sun went down the kids went...

When we reserved a site for our RV we were charged a $400 deposit (we hadn't visited their website beforehand.) That was a mistake. We were going to stay long-term but our situation changed. We went to cancel our reservation and were told we would get half back, which was $200. Went to their website only to discover that we...

We only stayed here for 1 night and it was ok, but compared to other places we've stayed it was very sub par, especially considering it was the most expensive place we stayed during our 4 weeks in Canada. They charge $2 for an 8 minute shower, we only stayed in one other campsite during our trip that charged for...

Many seasonal and permanent RV's. Access to river below was nice and we had a nice view on it. Little privacy on sites. Quiet when we were there. Booked for 2 nights as we arrived and then another 2 but decided to leave after the 2nd night. Owners would not consider even a partial refund. Services reliable.
