Because of the delicate water table on Hornby, we are very conservative with water consumption and always suggest that RVs come full and leave empty. We urge all campers to bring some drinking water if it's convenient. We have clean and very practical outhouses and 5 access taps in the grounds for water. We ask that you take water to your site for washing up or drinking, to avoid puddles around the taps, then sprinkle your gray water on young trees or on the road to keep the dust down. For the same reason, we do not have a dumping station, but suggest in this case that you come empty and leave full. Again, the bushes and greenery appreciate your gray water. Our water is pumped daily from our wells into storage cisterns, then chlorinated, charcoal filtered, and put through a UV light.
We have a recycling center on Hornby that we are very proud of. Due to our sorting efforts, very little garbage becomes landfill. Other refuse is sorted daily by our staff. Nine recycling centers in the campground are clearly labeled and emptied daily for your convenience.
Each site is unique and we try to place campers in an effort to make sure that everyone gets along. If you plan to come, please call first. Tell us your special needs - large tent? Lots of kids? Honeymooning? We want to avoid disappointment after two ferry rides to get here. If you're a last minute camper, watch for the "campsites full" sign at Buckley Bay.
Check-in time is anytime after 11am. Check-out time is 11am. We request that you please check out by 11 am and leave your site tidy in respect for other campers checking in and for us to ensure the site is ready. All music MUST be off and quiet time begins at 10pm.” If you must bay at the moon, we invite you to take a stroll on the beach, while fellow-campers enjoy the precious peace of Hornby.
Dogs are welcome, on a leash, cleaned up after, and not left unattended.
Many campers bring bicycles. There are many trails on the island for biking, from leisurely easy-riding to advanced technical down-hill. There are also many beautiful hikes/walks on beaches and trails. One of the best ways to see Hornby's natural beauty is from kayaks. The rock formations and varied flora and fauna provide a rich, natural setting for summer fun. If you like rocks, beaches, trees, friendly people, good food, good health, practical, earth-conscious thinking, you'll probably want to check out Hornby Island.
