B.C. Parks Expands Camping at China Beach and Little Qualicum

B.C. Parks has announced the addition of new camping facilities at China Beach and Little Qualicum campgrounds, as part of an effort to enhance outdoor recreational spaces and encourage more residents and visitors to explore the natural beauty of the region.

At China Beach Campground, located within Juan de Fuca Park on the west coast of southern Vancouver Island, B.C. Parks has completed the construction of 33 new campsites. This development includes 22 drive-in sites and 11 walk-in sites, all of which are now open for reservations.

These new sites are part of a broader plan to expand the campground’s capacity. According to B.C. Parks, an additional 13 walk-in sites are slated for construction and are expected to be ready for the 2025 camping season. This expansion also includes the installation of two new buildings equipped with showers and flush toilets, scheduled for completion this fall.

Simultaneously, B.C. Parks has introduced eight new walk-in campsites at Little Qualicum Campground, which is located west of Parksville. These sites are already available for use, further expanding the camping options in the area.

Juan de Fuca Park is renowned for its rugged natural scenery, which includes a mix of marine and wildlife habitats, as well as the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail. The trail spans 47 kilometers along the Pacific coastline, providing both challenging and moderate hiking opportunities.

The park comprises four main areas: China Beach Campground, the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, China Beach day-use area, and Botanical Beach. Each offers unique experiences and access points for visitors looking to enjoy the park’s diverse landscapes.

The China Beach Campground itself is strategically located near the east end of the park, close to the Juan de Fuca East trailhead. This location not only provides campers with vehicle access but also connects to the nearby China Beach and Second Beach through a series of trails. These beaches are known for their scenic views and provide additional recreational opportunities for campers.

With these developments, B.C. Parks aims to make it easier for more people to engage with the outdoors and take advantage of the province’s extensive natural resources. The expansions at China Beach and Little Qualicum are part of ongoing efforts to improve and increase access to provincial parks and recreational areas across British Columbia.

As the camping season approaches, B.C. Parks encourages visitors to reserve their spots early and to explore the new facilities and hiking options available at these enhanced campgrounds. The agency continues to invest in infrastructure that supports outdoor activities, ensuring that parks remain accessible and enjoyable for all visitors.
