Glamping at Mussel Beach Wilderness Campground, on the West Coast of Vancouver Island is off grid camping in style. Beachcomber, 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

Rainforest 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.

Our stay in the tent could not have been more perfect. The location of the campsite is so secluded and peaceful, yet within easy reach of Ucluelet and Tofino. The site had so much wildlife - including nesting eagles and a family of bears that use the other end of the beach! Danielle and Mark provided everything you could need, from head torches to aluminium foil, all we brought was food.

An amazing beachside location with really well thought out tents and kitchen - everything you need! Definitely don't attempt the drive with a slow puncture, but worth the effort for bonfires on the beach and eagles in the trees.

What a charming AirBnB! highly recommend staying in Danielle and Mark's glamping tent. The road to get in is indeed remote but not that bad and worth the drive to get to such an isolated location. Each morning there we woke to see a black bear rummaging the beach and a bald eagle family flying the shore. Tents are beach side and cozy. Very charming and we loved our stay!

This is such a great find! It's amazing and Mark & Danielle have gone out of their way to provide you with the best "glamping" experience possible. The attention to detail of everything was amazing. For instance: they have binoculars readily available to be able to enjoy the wildlife just outside your tent. Definitely drive slow on the dirt road -- that drive is totally worth it. We'd love to come again.

Glamping at its best. You have your own kitchen, fully equipped, a nice big bed and living area with a wood burning stove to keep you warm at night with the prettiest view of the beach out the door. We really enjoyed fires on the beach and saw bald eagles and bears and all the stars in the night sky. Bring lots of meals to cook and wine to drink because you wont want to leave once you arrive. Danielle and Mark were very accommodating and so friendly. If you like being outdoors but don't love roughing it, this is perfect for you!
