Description

I know this spot sounds rough -- because it is. However, it is fairly private with extra room to set up a tent and an outdoor cooking area. Partial mountain view to watch sunset is a bonus. You can get drinking water from my house, but no bathroom privileges. There are no dumping stations on Hornby. When you get ready to leave, some rearranging of vehicles may be required to clear you a turn around spot.

House Rules

Usually under campfire ban in summer -- so please comply.
No generators -- but may be able to recharge some of your devices when necessary.

Access Road Conditions

The driveway is gravel with some small potholes. I can drive my truck with camper up it, but may have a branch or two reaching the top of your rig. There is a power line access road, which is a little more rough but private -- just be aware you will have to back out when leaving as road does not go through. There are also a couple of spots in my driveway that you could use -- where I could provide 15 amp power to and water is near-by. You could set-up your RV in one and park your tow vehicle in another. Ground not very level anywhere -- have some wood boards that you can stack and drive up to help.

Not sure what the maximum size RV can come up here. Big delivery trucks can make it and turn around, but I am guessing 30 feet would be close to the maximum.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

I have a couple of parking spots for vehicle separate from camping spots. However, I may be using one. Please inquire about availibility.

Summer time here and on Hornby can get very busy. Please be aware long ferry lines can make coming and going a long ordeal.

Even if the dates are showing available, I may not be able to accommodate you. I will try to keep calendar up-to-date.

Location

Hornby Island, BC, Canada

Suggested Local Attractions

Hornby Island campgrounds are often completely full for July and August because so many people are attracted to the big sandy beach and many trails all over the island. There is an extensive mountain biking trails and even biking paths along the side of many roads. Helliwell park provides and easy hike with great views.

Stayed in cabin

On vacation from Ontario and we were renting a teardrop trailer. Forgot we had to have a washroom so ended up renting her cabin instead of Boondocking. Seemed pricey but maybe it’s because we went from a free stay to $150 for one night.
