Camp by the sea at the RDN's new Regional Park on scenic Gabriola Island. Formerly known as the Gabriola Campground, Descanso Bay Regional Park is located at 595 Taylor Bay Road, only a short distance from the ferry terminal. The Regional Park offers 32 camping sites on a beautiful 40-acre oceanfront property. Two oyster bays provide many delights for kayakers and other boaters as well as picnickers, campers and hikers.

Descanso Bay Regional Park was made possible in part by a generous donation from the Coastal Community Credit Union (CCCU). Thank you CCCU for helping preserve this lovely oceanfront property for the recreational enjoyment of all. Check it out!
