WELCOME TO OUR FAMILY CAMP GROUND
Big Tent RV Park and Campground
Being asked why we wanted to move to Parksville BC I had to reflect back to the first time we travelled here several years ago from the Northwest Territories driving down from Port Hardy, arriving very late at night in Qualicum Beach, taking a hotel for one evening and waking up the next morning overseeing the ocean, we decided this would be our home for retirement.
We began our search on that same visit for real estate and purchased a home in Qualicum Beach thus as a rental and later one in Nanoose Bay that too becoming a rental and our target for our future retirement spot. Here in the last year we have purchased the Big Tent RV Park and Campground in Parksville after selling our business in Yellowknife and searching from Edmonton to Vancouver Island for an opportunity and this always came up on our radar. Over the years of coming here we became more comfortable with the island life, the people and felt this was the place to continue our retirement business. We have found in our first year the people to be warm and very welcoming plus we feel centrally located on the east coast of Vancouver Island where there are both retires and families with young children. Similar to the north, many people are from elsewhere and it is easy to strike up a conversation. We are here to stay!
