Maple Grove Recreation Site

 

This site is located on the north shore of Cowichan Lake, one of the largest bodies of fresh water on Vancouver Island. Due to its unique climate, the Cowichan Valley is a very popular summer recreation area. The campsite is well-treed and is suitable for small motorhomes. Campers will enjoy the good gravel beach and excellent sunbathing and swimming opportunities. There is also a boat launch suitable for small boats. Boating, watersports, and fishing for rainbow and cutthroat trout are popular on Cowichan Lake.

Washrooms

Submitted by Guest on August 22, 2014

The washrooms were deplorable during our first experience at this site! It is a beautiful recreation site, family oriented, dog friendly but the washrooms were so filthy that next time we stay there, I'll bring my own thank you. They need to be hosed down and sprayed with disinfectant at least every couple of days. The odor from the one near our spot was horrific! We have stayed in other Recreational Sites on Vancouver Island and they have been excellent. Someone cleaned the washrooms twice a day, made sure there was toilet paper there and unmentionables not strewn about.

I know of several people who would use your site but I have had to warn them about the toilets.

Disgusting.
