Municipal and Private Campgrounds
There are municipal, community, association and private campgrounds are located near and within many of the communities on the island. Private campgrounds are maintained and managed locally by a family or a manager. A private campground is, generally, ideally located close to a community or in a community. Some are located on beaches, lakes, oceans while others on highways, gravel roads or close to downtowns. Municipal and association campgrounds are located within the local communities on Vancouver Island. In general, they are operated by a local club or the city itself. Many of the services and attributes of a municipal and association campground are similar to the services of a private campground.
Wilderness Recreation Campsites
There are also forestry and wilderness recreation campsites located in the backcountry wilderness regions of the island. Forestry campsites are the most rugged campgrounds on Vancouver Island. They tend to be very remote and very basic. Most are accessed via a network of gravel roads. Some are not accessible by campers or RVs. The campground provides campers a place to camp and maybe a pit toilet. Some require a fee for camping and some are free of charge - you just have to get there.
Peak camping months on Vancouver Island are from May to September. Although camping is enjoyed year round as many of the private campgrounds operate year round. Campgrounds should be booked in advance, especially on weekends and holidays.
