Nanaimo and area has a population of over 100,000
the park is in the perfect location on Nanaimo's southern
edge overlooking the harbour. It's only a 5 minute walk to
shopping and buses, an 8 minute drive to the city centre,
and a 12 minute drive to ferries, but when you're here
feel like you're in another world, away from everything.
Nanaimo's central Island
location makes the Living Forest perfect base camp to
explore the hundreds of Vancouver Island attractions
awaiting you, knowing you'll have a fabulous site welcoming
you each evening to relax and unwind. This is civilized
camping. Beautiful clean showers, flush toilets, tile floors
and pristine city water from the same mountain lakes that
feed the river
that flows past the park.
And wait until you
see the sunsets...
