Gardenside Acres Victoria camping grounds

As one of the smallest Victoria campgrounds you’ll enjoy tranquility at “Gardenside Acres” – a rural setting that’s also in walking distance of many attractions. We are situated in a quiet area that backs onto 5 acres of natural park and the ocean at Brentwood Bay. Here there are many opportunities to kayak, explore marine life, see the sights and take part in other water activities – just a short walk from our doorstep. There are also many excellent hikes and walks in the area ranging from short and leisurely to strenuous ones for those avid hikers. And if you want to experience even more of our wonderful city, downtown Victoria has so much more to offer and it’s only a short driving distance away.

Our unique campground offers just a few tent sites which have access to potable water, and a mobile restroom with 2 flush toilets and sinks.  Along with these features, our campground offers an optional home-style breakfast. Our small farm has laying hens and meat birds as well as an orchard and fruit and vegetable garden which add individuality to your rural camping experience. Guests are welcome to purchase our fresh seasonal vegetables and fruit to compliment their meals or take as snacks while they enjoy the fabulous attractions of Victoria

We have available event rentals equipment: from a restroom trailer and tents to tables and chairs.

Contact us directly if you are interested in WHALE WATCHING as we are able to book a tour for you as well as get you a discount!
