Nanaimo is mid Vancouver Island and a Port City, with a lovely City park on the downtown ocean. Whale watching tours, kayaking, and a nice waterfront shopping and restaurants.
In summer, there is strict fire regulations so may not be able to use firepit.
Gps will tell you to take Lantern road, a silly tiny detour, just stay on Holden Corso which turnes into our street.
Driveway is steep but short, parking right in front of house on gravel. If parking right next to house, you can park tow vehicle beside. spot to park is 20ft wide x 30ft long. Long vehicles must go slow or will bottom out. Not a place to show up at in the dark to park, no street lights.
We have the nicest pub nearby called Crow and Gate, even if you do not drink, it is quaint and good food! We have a lot of great swimming holes on the river and even one that is a 5 minute drive or easy bike ride away!
Found these two to be more than accommodating. Friendly and very helpful -- especially since I got caught in a heat wave that had me needing 30 amp service to run my air conditioner. If you are looking for a space to explore the many attractions between Nanaimo and Lady Smith, you will enjoy having this spot.
We've had an excellent stay with Jane and Richard. They are experienced RV'ers and were very welcoming from the moment we arrived.
We could hook up to their conveniently located 30amp RV socket. That was much appreciated, as our solar was not very useful during the rainy days. We were also able to refill our fresh water tank. This was also great as many public fill-up stations are closed for the Winter.
The spot itself is 100% level and located close to the house. The neighborhood is very safe.
Due to COVID-19 we've socialized fairly little. We hope to come back again and catch up on the travels after the pandemic.
Wonderful people and hassle free setting for my 19 foot Roadtrek! God willing, I will be back!
