Country Maples RV Resort
9010 Trans Canada Hwy.
Peak Dates: May 15 through September 6
Country Maples RV Resort is located on Vancouver Island, off the southwest coast of British Columbia. With the Chemainus River running through the resort and the waters surrounding the island noted for year-round fishing, the resort is a fisherman’s paradise and an excellent vacation spot for nearly anyone.
You’ll want to drive into nearby picturesque Chemainus to see the more than 30 larger-than-life murals on the walls of downtown buildings. The professional paintings depict the history of Chemainus Valley and have attracted artists from across the globe. Walking tours, guided tours, and horse-drawn carriage tours are available. Take a drive south on scenic Highway 1 with a detour on Highway 18 to see beautiful Cowichan Lake. Enjoy the surrounding area from the scenic viewpoints in the Cowichan Valley Demonstration Forest.
The town of Duncan came into being when prospectors came to the area to mine copper and coal. Some of the abandoned mines and original homesteads can still be seen at nearby Mount Sicker. Take a ride on a logging train or just walk through the 99-acre British Columbia Forest Museum with its displays of the province’s forestry history, films, a sawmill, a smithy, and an old-time logging camp. Visit the living-history Native Heritage Centre depicting the culture of the Northwest Coast Indians. Continue on the scenic route to the picturesque city of Victoria, the capital of the province. The city’s British influence is seen almost everywhere, especially in its tearooms, pubs and Victorian-style shops. Take a ride through the streets on one of the double-decker busses, and ride under the baskets of flowers hanging from lamp posts and past the city’s many beautiful floral gardens.
Consider visiting the Parliament Buildings at night when more than 3,000 lights illuminate the buildings’ elaborately carved facades. During the day you can also see the surrounding 12 acres of gardens, fountains and statues.
