This place is not private property. This user seems to have a history of trying to shut down spots. All five of their contributions are just the same "this is private property" or "no overnight parking." Probably an angry local with too much time on their hands.

Description

?Private Property?
.....
Gravel parking at the beginning of a BC user-maintained trail that is "closed for hazard". Next to the highway but not much noise at night

Very nice spot that is NOT a private property at all.
It's the parking of an old BC user-maintained trail, not maintained anymore and therefore "closed for hazard". Some people still come to walk on the trail has it is still in good shape.
We stayed here 4 nights without any problem, there were 4-5 vans/campers each night so I can't imagine how busy it is in high season 😱

There's still a driver honking each morning when he goes to work though.

Bon sport, nous y avons passé 4 nuits. Arrivés avant 20h pour être certain d’avoir une place. Le spot le plus proche de Tofino et Ucluelet et aussi proche du visitor center. Nuit calme mais souvent klaxonné le matin (sûrement qu’il n’est pas apprécié de tous de voir des campers hors des campings).

Report Check-In

Stayed there for 2 nights.
The place is ideally located 5mins from the intersection that leads you either to Tofino or Ucluelet.
When we stayed there, the trail was closed so there was no noise, and we didn't disturb anyone entering the trail.
There is about 10 spots available. The two nights the area was full, and we had the last place arriving around 9PM.
I recommend the spot as it's safe and not too noisy (despite being close to the road)

No issues camping here. It's a busy & popular spot. One truck drove by honking intentionally in the middle of the night.

Report Check-In

Good little spot. Spent the night with no issues.

Report Check-In

Good spot to spend the night. No issues. We visited in April so the number of cars and trucks going by were only a few.

Report Check-In

Some falling apart RV and old car parked at the spot, trail is closed. Still enough room for few rigs. Spent a night, between 1 and 2 AM someone kept on driving by every 5 minutes honking as they were passing us by. Bad vibes, looks like locals do not want any boondockers in or nearby town. Spot is still available, but not recommended.

Report Check-In

Good Place to spend a night. Quiet at night, first trucks pass by early the morning.

Parking for "a walk in the forest" trail. Stayed here for five nights while we were visiting Tofino. It's about a 30min drive into the city but it's the best you're gonna get if you don't want a ticket. You won't be the only one there, very often we would wake up to some new neighbours but everyone was friendly, no issues. We found some chanterelles on the trail! Quiet spot at night, enough room for about 5 vans/campers. Be respectful, clean up after yourself and hopefully this spot won't catch the eye of the piggies.
