We started our first night at the RV Park in the city (Prince Rupert). It was an experience all right. Needless to say we moved to Kinnikinnick Campground in Port Eward after speaking to the tourism center. The 10 min drive to kinnikinnick is worth it just for the incredible ocean view along the drive alone. We arrived at Kinnikinnick and were warmly welcomed by the manager. We were shown several sites to choose from. The sites are all different so we picked one that was perfect for us. Across the street is a small convenience store where we picked up the basics, had a bit of lunch and then went for a stroll down by the ocean. It was great. That night we bought an arm load of firewood and sat outside listening to the calls of at least a dozen different night birds as we recounted our years together and the raising of the children. A most pleasant evening. The next day we went down and threw on some laundry and took showers. The shower rooms and bathrooms were very clean and new. We spoke to a number of other guests as we waited for the dryers to finish drying. I think the positive attitude of this park just attracts all the best people. We exchanged emails and went down to the Cannery Museum (just down the road from Kinnikinnick). It was a wonderful time, we had lunch there. Thank you for helping make our trip perfect.
Where do I start! The bathrooms are locked. You have to go in and get the key each time you need to use one. After all that the bathrooms were not clean enough for me to feel comfortable using. The park is just a big field with unlevel, wet sites. The only attraction (adjacent hiking trails) are blocked off and closed. The base price for a night stay is far too high for what you get (over $30 a night), and it goes up for a myriad reasons. I'm sorry but I can't recommend this campground. The manager told us that he is the "only show in town". When we complained to the tourism office the next day they pointed us to another campground 10 min away, which was much better.
