Alder Bay Resort, if it's open, is beautiful with full service sites overlooking the ocean towards Alert Bay. Very clean showers and laundry room. Boat slips and launch. Been going there every summer for the last 12 years. Alder Bay Resort - Telegraph Cove, British Columbia

Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Campground is a great place to stay on your way up North Island:

Last spring I was enchanted watching a grey wolf for about half hour criss-crossing the estuary -- magical!

I don't recall the name, maybe Bear River? a few km North of Campbell River, turn East, about 30 km along to a forest company campsite on the ocean. Rough road in. Near a fish farm research station, name escapes me.

We also like Buttle Lake in Strathcona, & another forest company site on an unnamed lake West of Hwy 19 & North of the hwy to Port Alice. Careful of logging trucks. The BC Backroads guide is your friend! More so than my memory!
Lotar & Wendy,
My wife and I hope to start exploring Vancouver Island when we get our 21. I looked for the BC Backroads guide you mentioned. I found this on Amazon.

Vancouver Island BC: Backroad Mapbook (Backroad Mapbook. Vancouver, Coast & Mountains): Russell Mussio, Wesley Mussio: 9781897225745: Books

Is this the same guide you were recommending?
