Due to the high risk at China Creek, fires are not permitted on the beach. Fires are allowed at our Cookhouse and in designated fire pits in Creekside and Beachside sites. During a fire ban we encourage visitors to bring a propane fire pit, so they can safely enjoy a campfire.

What visitors are saying about us...
Beach is Lovely
Great site. Family-friendly. So much for the kids to do. And the beach is lovely
Beautiful grounds and wonderful staff
…The rest of our stay was incredibly peaceful and relaxing. Facilities on-site were cleaned daily. They have a large community fire pit surrounded by picnic tables. It’s right along the ocean as well as the creek. We honestly lived it all and will be going back there for sure. Thanks for everything guys!!!
Best Fishing Spot
This was a great oasis. Best fishing spot I’ve been to. Enjoyed the environment to the end.
We had a fantastic stay at china Creek Campground. The view from our campsite was the best. We enjoyed waking up to the birds signing in the morning and the luxury of having hot and cold running water, very clean washrooms and showers were the best by far. Thank you for a great stay
More than we Expected
I was a last min booking for the long weekend and no problem they had a site for me and it was more than we expected. Sat night movie in the park, hiking, fishing town close by and the drive out was not nearly as bad as I was told. definitely coming back! see you next time😁
Room with a view
A nice couple of days rest, right on the beach. The campground was quiet with very few campers, so we had our choice of spots. The grounds are tidy, washrooms super clean, and a friendly staff. We hiked the Alberni Inlet trail, right from the campground. We were told to look out for bears, cougars and that chanterelles could be found. No animals, but did manage a few mushrooms to add to our dinner. A short gravel road takes you from Port Alberni to China creek. There is plenty to do here. So make it a west coast stop.
