pachena bay from west coast trailThe Pachena Bay Campground is located in a magnificent setting on the shores of Pachena Bay, where the Pachena River flows into the ocean. Next to the Huu-ay-aht First Nations community of Anacla and nestled amidst a virgin rainforest on Vancouver Island’s unspoiled west coast, the campground has been smartly upgraded to welcome campers and RVs.


The campground, located next to an expansive, sandy beach, directly faces the open Pacific Ocean and is at the head of the world-famous West Coast Trail. Here, you will enjoy unparalleled wilderness experiences, including beachcombing, hiking through old-growth rainforest, and wildlife watching. You can also partake in some of the world’s best sportsfishing, kayaking, diving or eco- and cultural tourism adventures. We extend a warm welcome to you to visit us at incredible Pachena Bay!



We will be accepting reservations starting April 3, 2017 by Phone only for the 2017 Camping season at 250-728-1287, from 9 am – 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday .

We look forward to another successful Camping season.
