Salt Spring Island Camping
My Favourite: Garden Faire Campground
Located right next to the yet undiscovered Mouat Park, Garden Faire offers you everything you'll ever need for a great camping experience.
Imagine waking up in the morning greeted by shafts of golden sunlight reflected off The Duck Pond...
And if it does rain (after all, it is a rainforest), you have the towering Douglas firs reaching out their branches to shelter you from the storm...
There are plenty of animals about: red-headed woodpeckers (they're huge!), frogs, deer, ducks, owls, bald eagles...
But the thing I love most about Garden Faire is how seamlessly it fits into Mouat Park. One minute, you're walking the paths in the park, and the next minute, you're at Garden Faire...
Most folks who come to Ganges don't even realize that there is a park like Mouat so close to town.
In fact, if you walk from McPhillips Avenue (where the Library is), across Jackson Avenue, you can see the trailhead for Mouat Park.
There are other ways to the park but this is my personal favourite because it takes you right from town to the trees. Plus, there's a beautiful, babbling brook to keep you company on your short walk to Garden Faire.
Garden Faire Campground has beautifully situated campsites in an old growth forest, just a 10 minute walk via the Mouat Park Trails to all the amenities in downtown Ganges.
Each site has a firepit. The water throughout the campground is good for drinking and there are water and electric hook-ups in the camper/RV sites. The campground is supervised and we welcome both children and well-behaved pets.
