TMan....we live in Victoria and have taken our 38' MH to most of the Island. In Victoria you have 3 options;
1) Oceanside .......is located on the Sannich peninsula half way between Sidney & Victoria. It is on the ocean and pretty much on the Galloping Goose bike path (60min to either Sidney or Victoria). Nice park with many full-time residents.
2) Westbay Marine Village .....is located in downtown Victoria (on the water) and within walking/biking distance of the entire downtown. This park is not much more than a fancy parking lot, but you absolutely cannot beat the location.
3) Pedder Bay Marina ... Is one of our favourite RV destinations "Anywhere". Great park, on the water (fishing, kayaking, crabbing, bird watching (eagles, osprey, herron), marine mammals (seals, otters, mink, bears) Pedder is also on the Galloping Goose hiking/biking trail ( 2hrs to Vic & 90min. to Sooke) and also part of E. Sooke park with hundreds of kilometres of coastal hiking......and walking distance to Matheson lake for fresh water swimming (dogs & people). Outdoor Cafe on the water serves homemade "stuff" and Starbucks coffee!
We have other favourite locations on the a Island, but we'll leave the recommendations for those living up North.
