Me and my friends came to river end after having an awful experience at another campsite and leaving. Riven end couldn't have been a better saving grace for our camping trip. The young woman at the front desk was so friendly ad helpful. We asked if the sites had electricity as we wanted to charge cell phones and she actually...

We came up for this last weekend for a LAX tournament in Parksville. We stayed in Yurt #2. It was cozy, had a full bath, queen bed that was quite firm, futon, gas fireplace, tv, kitchen with microwave and stove top. It was very comfy. As for location in the park, it was farther away from the kids playground then...

Riverbend was top-notch in almost all areas. The service was great throughout--from the booking to the time we left. The cabin was also fine: clean, and everything you could reasonably expect was provided in terms of cooking/eating utensils. Beds were fine, although the pull-out couch is only appropriate for younger children. Lots of places to run around/play/ride bikes during the...

We had a family reunion at Riverbend Resort in July, 2012. It was a fairly large event with 68 of us (from babies to seniors) there for 3 days. From the initial contact through to the completion of the event, Heather and all the staff were pleasant, helpful and professional. Heather asked numerous times what she could do to ensure...

Riverbend campground and RV park is a great place to take your family . The staff are great and extremely accommodating to all of our needs. The grounds are right beside Englushman River, the water is cool and crisp. The grounds are well kept as well as the cottages. My family loves to go swim, relax and take time to...

We had such a great experience at the Riverbend Resort. We came into Parksville late in the evening pulling our travel trailer. There were no available campsites in town, and after driving around for a while, pulled into the driveway of Riverbend. The woman who assisted us was extremely helpful and offered us a bachelor cabin at a discounted rate,...

We rented a Yurt for the first time and it was a great choice for accommodation. Warm and comfortable and had all the perks a hotel would offer from internet to coffee. Just a different way to enjoy your trip. Give Yurts or Tenting a try!

We only stayed one night but would stay again. Room was beautiful and clean with heated floors, stove, fridge, flat-screen TV and fireplace. Couldn't ask for anything more!! Make sure you check out the river with it's sandy beach... Heather and Shawn are very helpful and make sure to please. Also, very close to Parksville and several other ocean front...

Stopped in at Riverbend after our trip out to Tofino, with the plan to stay for one night. We wound up staying for a week. We found Riverbend to be well kept, a great river beach, all RV sites were full service at a reasonable price, good WIFI, super close to Parksville, Rathtravor Provincial Park and it’s ocean beach.

I reserved our campsite at Riverbend in May 2011 for our family wedding gathering in July 2011. I talked with E on the phone about a few different sites that were available at that time. We decided on one site that was larger and on the end of a row so it would be more private . It was also...
