Oceanside RV Resort is located in Saanichton, British Columbia. The property is relatively large and has 183 sites. There are two sections in the campground based on the duration of guests' stay on the property. The two sections are either for seasonal/monthly stays or weekly/nightly stays. There are 104 sites that are designated for seasonal/monthly stays and 79 voyageur sites accommodate overnight and weekly stays. The weekly and nightly sites are grouped near the ocean view of the grounds. 

Oceanside RV Resort offers the same amenities to all guests staying with them. Each spot includes full hook-ups, which means all sites come equipped with water, electricity, and sewage. About half of all spots have 50 amp service, with the rest having 30 amp services. Thirteen of the voyageur sites are pull-through and "big Rig friendly." Campsites do not include a fire pit, but propane burning fires are accepted if brought by patrons and there is a communal propane fire pit. Woodburning fires are not allowed on the property. All sites may include a picnic table. Cable connections are available to guests who stay at least one month, and open WiFi is only offered to those staying for at least one month, though all sites may get connected to the WiFi provided.

There are three buildings on the property: the main office, the Cookhouse, and the Beach House. At the main office, visitors and residents can receive help with questions and concerns about sites and can get more information about the surrounding area. The office includes a few items, mostly ice cream, but laundry soap and small snack items are also available. There is also a vending machine on the property where guests can buy pop and drinks. The main office includes small laundry room, shower, and bathroom area. The Cookhouse is a communal area where guests can gather together. Inside the building is an area for guests to sit and lounge on chairs and sofas with a TV, games, and foosball table. Adjacent to the lounge area is a relatively large BBQ where guests can dine and prepare any food they have brought with them. Outside, a playground, small field, and communal propane fire pit are available to all those staying on the property. The third building on the property is the Beach House. The Beach House also has a bathroom, showers, and laundry facilities and is located closest to the beach access and available to all those on the property. 

The main attractions of the area are the beaches along the coast. Guests can look out along the Haro Strait and the Pacific Ocean near the Canadian-American border. Boating and other aquatic activities are popular in the region. Victoria is a large city in the region, and many of the restaurants, shopping, and indoor activities are located there. The staff also mentions that biking and hiking are available to guests with several trails along the coast that patrons often take advantage of. A unique activity in the region is whale watching during the months of April to November.


The staff at Oceanside RV Resort Strives to give guests memorable experiences and hopes that they can feel peace and quiet during their stay. The campground is mainly known for its cleanliness and for being quiet during later hours. Many of the guests are often more mature, and often couples and small families use voyageur sites during their stay. Guests are often coming to the area for the beach and some of the natural attractions in the area. One visitor to the property mentioned, "this is a very quiet location, with great access to the beach, and also very dog-friendly. Good sized sites and very well maintained. The property is a good 'home base' when visiting the area and is close to the Galloping Goose for bike riding and walking."

To help maintain the atmosphere, the establishment has several important policies. There is a quiet time from 11:00 pm to 8:00 am, smoking is only allowed on the site of the guest or resident, and pets are allowed but are asked to be kept on a leash and attended to during their stay. The property is open year-round, though the summer seems to be the busiest season. The property is hoping to increase and add more voyageur sites to accommodate guests coming during the summer months. They plan to add a gazebo to the property near the fire pit and want to add more activities for those staying at the establishment. Many patrons have enjoyed the aquatic activities nearby and being outdoors. Those with animals often take them to the beach, and sometimes groups from the resort gather for activities by the beach as well


Oceanside RV Resort was developed privately on First Nations land in 2005. The RV Resort continued to be a family-run business for almost a decade until the property was sold to Parkbridge in 2012. After purchasing the property, Parkbridge implemented a few changes to the property. The property was updated, and small changes in landscaping and renovations to buildings were made. Parkbridge continues to look for opportunities to grow.
