Quatse River Campground Facilities
Even though the park is located in a densely wooded mature forest setting, you will find all you need to make your camping experience as comfortable as possible.
Such amenities include;
- 30 Amp Power & Water campsites
- Clean restrooms;
- Free hot showers;
- Laundry facilities;
- Wi-Fi hotspot for guests;
- Pet friendly;
- Self-directed Quatse Loop forest walks
- Next to Quatse Salmon Stewardship Center
The campground is situated alongside the picturesque and peaceful Quatse River, a very active fish spawning river. Each evening we enjoyed walking and sitting along the river bank, watching the hundreds of fish jumping from the water in search of their evening meal!
At time of our stay in July, the river was exceptionally low do to a long period of unusually dry weather. The river is generally much higher as seen in the picture above. Further up the river you will find beautiful water holes with fishing jumping all over.
This is also a very popular feeding area for black bears living in the surrounding forest.
Hike The Quatse River Loop and Estuary Trail
Take in the beautiful scenery with an easy 2.5 km riverside loop or side trail leading to a wildlife-viewing platform in the estuary.
As well, you can also venture straight into town on a well-maintained community trail along the Quatse River and shoreline of Hardy Bay.
This is Bear and Cougar Country, so pay attention to the signs posted and ask staff for recent sightings or hiking advice during your stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful park in northern Vancouver Island in Beautiful British Columbia, and look forward to a return visit very soon. Staff are very friendly and happy to assist in any way they can when on duty.
Below, I have included the parks official website for your convenience where you can access much more detailed information.
