Had a really pleasant stay here at Ford's Cove. A last-minute overnight stay at Ford's Cove after a great dive weekend next door at Hornby Island Dive Center. I was pleasantly surprised by our off-season cabin rental. We knew it would be rainy, as is typical for this time of year, but the cabin was a GREAT size, had a... More

Third year in a row and not disappointed. The cabin was very clean (as usual) with friendly staff who do their job well. The three days were incredible with the store handy where locals gather and include visitors cheerfully. The great fish and chip wagon is a must !!.Forget the diet-your on the Island.

We came with another family, the adults stayed in the cabin and the kids slept in a tent and this worked out great! The cabin is well equipped and cozy. The general store is well stocked and has a espresso machine! We enjoyed the peace and quiet and Hornby island is a lovely place to visit. Next time we will... More

We love to return to Ford's Cove. Already stayed in a cabin with friends some years ago and in June we came for the second time to camp in our van. We got a great spot with electric hook up and were very pleased how long the hot water kept running in the shower. We truly enjoyed this peaceful campground... More

As the weather forecast for our annual mountain biking weekend was faltering, we decided to book Ford's Cove at the last minute. Not knowing what it would be like and only visiting the marina previously, we were unknowing to what lay ahead. To our surprise, the cabin was clean, well supplied and even had water treatment. It was an affordable... More

We just spent four nights camping at Ford's Cove and can't imagine a better location for ocean views, beautiful sunsets, and quiet tenting amongst the large old growth forest. Fire pits and nice sized tenting sites, an area for lawn sports, super clean washrooms/showers, chickens to give our food scraps to, and even some live music on the lawn (Tuesday... More

Our four night stay here was as good as it gets. The store is very well stocked and has excellent prices and a great Americano. Staff were approachable and helpful, but not clingy. We had the best campsite and enjoyed the sounds of other families having fun, nothing too loud or too crammed together. If you are looking for something... More

We absolutely loved staying at Ford Cove! We had very friendly service over the phone and the gentleman gave us directions and also recommended we sign up for BCFerries Experience Card which saved us $40 in ferry costs!
