We had stayed here before, several years ago. The park has changed ownership and the result is that many of the delightful art pieces of the former owner are now gone. But the setting remains beautiful, on the river and quiet. We camped on a river site. We were greeted by a friendly person and would consider staying here again, but next time I would bring my fishing pole and a license.
We love this park, and extended our stay twice for a total of two weeks. The resort used to be larger, but they converted half of it to condos lots that they are trying to fill. The staff were wonderful and helpful. There are two pools, putting greens, a driving hold, but the golf course is gone. There are tennis courts, laundry, a nice clubhouse, and beautiful grounds. The only downsides to park are the noise from I-10 and the trains that rumble through. We ended up moving to a higher-priced site to get further from the freeway and train tracks. Also, the Wi-Fi was not great, although I'm using it how. The main pool is great and warm. Workout room was great. The area has lots of nice things to see. We will return.
We arrived shortly after dark and the office was closed. The office area had instructions on what to do, and the sites that were available. We made our way to a site, with the help of a dog walker, and were pleased to find the pull-through site level and paved. We left early the next morning, so cannot comment on the amenities, but I did notice a pool and a nice clubhouse. The staff were friendly and helpful, although when I asked about how to get back to I-5 south, she gave us directions that seemed like they took us out of the way (through Corvalis). Getting to the park and back to I-5 were the worst of it. Otherwise, we liked the place. It seemed quiet and we will use this park in the future.
Pedder Bay RV Resort and Marina is a Good Sams park located in Metchosin BC, about 45 minutes from Victoria on Vancouver Island. The park is located on Pedder Bay, a beautiful quiet inlet. Some sites have excellent views of the bay and marina. The staff, located at the marina, were friendly and helpful. We took our inflatable kayak out into the bay, drove our car to Matheson Lake nearby (one could walk or easily cycle there), and enjoyed watching the eagles and seals. Boat rentals are available at the marina, and there is a boat launch (fee). The park has easy access to the Galloping Goose Trail, which is great for cycling with a mountain bike in both directions (toward Sooke or Victoria). Most sites are $35, with the water view sites with 50-amp service going up to $65 per night (minus the Good Sams discount for members). Adjacent to the park is Lester Pearson College, and there is a nice walking trail that will lead you to the campus where the public are welcome. Rumor has it that the owners will be adding more RV sites in the future. The camping season ends here at the end of October. While our Wi-Fi was very good, there is no cell phone coverage. We camped there 6 nights on a special deal received with the purchase of our motorhome. We plan to camp here in the future.
