Glamping at Mussel Beach Wilderness Campground, on the West Coast of Vancouver Island is off grid camping in style. Wildflower, 1 of 5 wall tents, has a Queen bed with luxury bedding, a table & chairs, futon couch, wood stove, covered porch & outdoor kitchen with all the amenities. All tents are beach front with fantastic ocean views and minutes to the out houses and gravity fed out door showers. After a 30 minute slow drive down a logging road you arrive to do some serious chillaxing.

The space

The large, deluxe canvas tent is 14' x 16', nice and roomy for two adults. The futon couch converts to a double bed if extra space is needed. There is an outdoor, covered porch, covered kitchen and private beach front access. The cedar outhouse and heated showers are steps away and very clean. More photos on our website sodamnluckyvacations.

Guest access

Seascape is on it's own private site with an ocean view of Barkley Sound. There is a double hammock and a fire pit on site, or if you prefer have a beach fire and watch the night sky. On your arrival you will have a 18 L bottle of drinking water, a 16 L jug of non potable water, ice packs in your cooler and your first nights fire wood for your stove. After that you can purchase drinking water, ice & firewood at reasonable prices.

Interaction with guests

We spend our summers at Mussel Beach, so can help with anything you may need. Lori and Curtis manage Mussel Beach Wilderness Campground, so they are also available.

Other things to note

The gravel road to Mussel Beach is approximately 30 minutes. It can be a rough road, depending on time of year and weather, just GO SLOW and you will have no problems. Mussel Beach is Wilderness, off the grid, no power. We do, however, get good cell service due to the Coast Guard tower near by.

We had a great relaxing stay. Some excellent wildlife to view in immediate area. Tents are located in a row within a larger campground RV park. Pitches are on beachfront. Tall fences offer privacy. Tent and kitchen area provide everything required.

It was a great adventure to stay at Danielle and Mark`s tent. The tent is so lovely decorated and well furnished. It is a perfect place for people who do not have camping stuff. Danielle and Mark have thought of everything - Mosquito Spray, Board games, umbrella, kitchen equipment... To lay in the hammock is so relaxing and the perfect place to observe wildlife. We saw blackbears and eagles. I really can recommend staying at this place!!!

We're very happy that you enjoyed your time here! We try to anticipate what guests need/want. Having 30 years in the hospitality trade helped with that. Thank you for coming out here!

A secluded, first class experience that exceeded expectations. The bumpy gravel roads are worth it. We were told that there were Black Bears. They must have been on strike. The late night stars and the Milky Way, made up for it! Go!

Response from Danielle & Mark:
It's funny how the bears randomly come out. They were out twice yesterday... hopefully next time. Great to meet you Neal!
