If you are going as far north as Port McNeill, the best campground in that area I know is Alder Bay RV Resort. Alder Bay Resort - Home.

If you have a chance, Coombs near Parksville is a nice little detour.

You will LOVE Vancouver Island, and as a previous poster said, it's easy to underestimate the size and the various locales, each with their own distinct personality. Hopefully you have left yourselves a good chunk of time.

Thanks everyone for your valuable thoughts, recommendations, and advice! I think we’ll head up in September when all the kids are back in school and campgrounds are readily accessible. As always, thanks to the members of this great community!

Co-worker had a 'cabin' ( to become a house over the years ) at Deep Bay spit. He took the month of September off work every year and often said Sept. was the best month on the Island.

My favourites are:

Sooke Potholes, Botanical Beach, Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park (fairly rough gravel roads to access this), Little Qualicum Falls, Rathtrevor beach, East Sooke Park, Chemainus, Coombs (goats on the roof).
