Pacific Playgrounds Oceanside Resort Offers Year-Round Activities

Something for everyone

Take a dip in the pool, play a friendly round of horseshoes at the pits, hit the water for some fishing or Vancouver Island whale watching, or simply relax by the campfire and enjoy your surroundings. There’s no wrong decision, but with so many things to do, you may have a tough time choosing which one to explore first! We can help.

Onsite amenities

Visit the Beachcomber General Store at our Vancouver Island resort for our famous ice cream, hit up the Tackle Shack to load up on fishing supplies, or explore our seasonal farmers’ market to get fresh fare and other local goodies.


A sports lover’s dream awaits, with everything from tennis to baseball, volleyball and basketball at our resort. Of course, there’s our heated outdoor pool to cool off in, and our large playground for the kids to be kids! And let’s not forget about the horseshoes and other games to let out your competitive side.

R & R (Relaxation & Retail)

Looking for something more relaxing? Take our QR-code Walk About tour or simply enjoy strolling by the Oyster River, along the beach or among the trees. Feel like shopping? Visit our eclectic country store, seasonal farmers’ market, Tackle Shack, or join in our many food and drink events that take place at the resort. The spirits and foodie fare come from local distilleries and producers.

Family fun

We have picnic tables a plenty to feed a hungry bunch, and large fire pits to fill the evenings with stories and laughter. Kids can fish directly from the dock under Mom or Dad’s supervision, and our Kids Activity program will keep the young ones entertained and safe while you pursue your bliss.

Water adventures

Fish from our dock, step over to swim the Oyster River or charter a boat for a scenic ocean tour or fishing trip with us. Water wildlife is plentiful all year long, with whale watching, dolphins, seals, birds, crabs and crayfish coming out to say hello now and again.

We also rent kayaks for self-guided ocean tours that often yield once-in-a-lifetime sights. You can rent boats and safety gear from our Tackle Shack.
