Surfside RV Resort

Oceanfront Vacation Bliss in our Backyard

When pandemic travel restrictions were at their height, Canada looked for the sweet spot to spend relaxing days, weeks, or months in the sunshine. Surfside RV Resort in Parksville was the perfect location. With classy RV park amenities and the friendly, neighbourly feel of a gated community, Canada came west.

Surfside RV Resort features a spectacular, 55-acre oceanfront layout to maximize the rewards of time spent with family and friends beachside. Clubhouse facilities, seaside pool and hot tub, tennis courts, pickleball — and the serenity of our Pacific Ocean beaches — the complete vacation package, right here in our backyard!

Come for a Weekend and Stay Forever

With over three hundred fully-serviced RV sites, Surfside RV Resort is a go-to destination for travellers heading to the pleasant climes of BC’s shoulder seasons, as well as snowbirds looking for a well-appointed resort for their Canadian summers. With mild winters sheltered on the east side of Vancouver Island’s beautiful shores, the health and wellness advantages of close proximity to nature offer a low-snow winter break.

For years, Surfside has enjoyed a steady, loyal clientele, many of whom have long-term membership status. We caught up with on-site manager, Shawn Bennett, recently and he explained that Vancouver Island neighbours might not know that the resort is open to the public as well. “Our members have committed to this place because they love it so much, but we have lots of ‘weekend warriors’ and shoulder-season ‘six-monthers’ who don’t need a membership to enjoy all the same amenities,” Bennett said.

Beach, Estuary, Panoramic Views, and Relaxation

Located at the bottom of Corfield Street, next to Parksville’s City Park, Bennett told us that often folks don’t realize the resort has so much to offer. “I wish more people would stop in to see us, maybe on their way to see the sand castles or when taking their grandkids to the playground. We love seeing the surprise when Parksville, Qualicum, and Nanaimo neighbours realize the comfortable, family-oriented oceanfront experience we offer so close to home.”

“We have view sites offering underground hookups, wifi access, phone/cable connectivity, reduced daily rates for longer stays, plus social activities and a relaxed, friendly feel. We’re a pleasant evening’s walk from downtown Parksville, meaning that shopping, restaurants, and coffee shops become part of the relaxing flow of a stay in our resort,” Bennett told us

Stop By and See the Beauty Next Door

For those with an RV, knowing there are 30 and 50 amp pull-through sites of a roomy 2,300 square feet and abundant coastal sunshine says it all. Local residents can leverage the benefits of a place to get-away and recharge, close-to-home — plan to stop in to say hello to the folks at Surfside RV Resort. Their gift shop is open business hours and you’ll come away amazed at this hidden jewel so close to downtown Parksville.
