My Formula

Pitch a tent on the shores of the Nimpkish River near Port McNeill, or stay in a yurt overlooking the beach near Ucluelet. Hook up your RV in Nanaimo, or go glamping in the Clayoquot wilderness. With a land area of 31,788 km² (12,273 miles²), and a population of less than 750,000, it’s not hard to find a space to sleep under the stars on Vancouver Island. With provincial parks and private campsites throughout the Island, there’s a site waiting for you and your sleeping bag any day of the year.
