Our most important amenity is a big one. Expansive, even. Cox Bay—Canada’s favourite surf beach—is right in our backyard, and we’ve got over 800 feet of access. Every site at Surf Grove Campground is just a short stroll from sand and surf, so getting your boards, chairs, umbrellas and other gear to the beach and back is easy peasy. Read on for Surf Grove’s other features and amenities, all designed to make your stay enjoyable and easy.
Features & Amenities
Family & Pet Friendly
We’re a family campground—which means we welcome kids of all ages and pets of all kinds. Better yet, we have special features just for them—like scavenger hunts and board games (for the kids) and a beachside rinse-off station (for the pets, and maybe the kids?). Please note that there’s a $20 fee per pet. No charge for the kids.
We wouldn’t want to say these are the nicest camping washrooms and showers you’ll ever see, but…these might just be the nicest camping washrooms and showers you’ll ever see. When we say Surf Grove is camping, elevated, that’s perhaps best seen in our commodes—brand-new, state-of-the-art, and regularly serviced.
Cedar Barrel Saunas
We don’t say “camping, elevated” for nothing. These “One Of A Kind” barrel saunas are locally made in Qualicum Beach here on Vancouver Island and offer a relaxing new element to camping at Cox Bay. Roughing it has never been so satisfying.
Currently Closed Due To Office Construction
Forget something? Run out of firewood? We have a general store on site, stocked with all the camping essentials—like ice, firewood, mosquito repellant, and all the fixin’s you need to make s’mores.
Of course, we’d love to see all our guests put down their devices for the duration of their stay, but let’s be realistic. Rainy days happen. Last-minute work happens. The need to post photos of your adventures happens. Connect to wifi throughout our property, in your camper or by the fire.
After a first season with technical difficulties we are happy to say the wifi in the park in up and running at full strength! Strong enough for streaming or doing zoom calls!
Amenities for Surfers
