A rustic campground on a freshwater lake nicely situated 15 minutes from Port Renfrew. 36 well spaced campsites, some large enough to be RV friendly. This first come first serve campground has a nice sand beach and fishing in the lake.

Fairy lake is a cash-only, first come, first serve campground.
$20 per site includes one vehicle. Extra Vehicles $10ea

Firewood on-site $20 wheelbarrow cash only

The campground is rustic, so no potable water, pit toilets and pack in, pack out your garbage.

Each site comes with a fire ring and picnic table but beware of the local fire ban information.

Fairy Lake is beautiful and perfect for canoeing, paddleboarding and fishing. And is home to one of the most photographed trees in the world, the fairy lake bonsai tree.

It is in a great location, along the Pacific Marine Road between Port Renfrew and Cowichan Lake, offering many day trip opportunities. Down the road is Harris Creek Sitka, or take the logging road up to Avatar Grove and Lonely Doug. One of the most popular spots in the area is the famous Botanical Beach, the start of the Juan de Fuca Trail.
