Guest Spotlight

Welcome Laura Olsen from Arrowvale Campground and Farm!  Located on Vancouver Island, Arrowvale is 67 acres nestled along the river that leads to Port Alberni.  There are 40 campsites and 2 cabins available for rent.

Arrowvale is great for fishing, mountain biking, and other outdoor activities.  Amenities include showers and flushing toilets, electrical hookups, and a cafe onsite with a full menu.  The Arrowvale Burger is a must try, made from grass-fed-beef grown right on the farm.

The petting farm has goats, bunnies, donkeys, cows, and more.  While there aren’t any reindeer on the island, they do have the nice bears (black bears), as long as you don’t feed them or bother them.

Movie Madness

Food Favs

Even though you can find several of them throughout the States, let’s make sure we give a shout out to Canada’s own Tim Hortons.  While Cameron may love their donuts, don’t forget to try your own local donut shops like The Donut Shop in Port Alberni or Krumpe’s in Hagerstown, Maryland.

Coombs Country Candy makes the best candied apple.  Or caramel apple. Let us know what you call it in the comments below!

Bucket List

After visiting Arrowvale, be sure to check out Della Falls, one of the tallest waterfalls in Canada.
