Welcome to Sea Change Farm and Nursery! We are located on the rugged west coast of Vancouver Iland. We have two quiet campsites tucked away in the back of our land. They are surrounded by big berms for privacy. Bordered by 2nd growth forest, and on the other side by a young alder forest. Climb up “Fairy Hill” and lay in a hammock to listen to the breeze. We also have an acre sized pond that you can walk to in a minute from your campsite. Watch the Canada Geese coming and going and our resident pair of runner ducks. Eggs and fire wood available for purchase. (Fire season permitting)  If you want to go for breakfast, lunch or just snacks and coffee, you can walk in 10 minutes to the renowned Shirley Delicious Cafe. The Sheringham Point Lighthouse is always fun to visit. Also Stoked wood fire pizza. We do not have a toilet set up yet so either come prepared to pack it out or 5 minutes down the road is French beach and all the other camping amenities including the rv sani dump station/water.

You will get texting here and there throughout property and if you need wifi for a couple of minutes just talk to us. 5 gallon potable drinking jugs available. One per night. Unfiltered well water available in small buckets when needed but to fill your RV you will have to go to French Beach.

We know you will enjoy your stay!

A little about us... We are 4 generations living on 10 acres of land surrounded by the mountains and close to the ocean. We have begun to regenerate this land with future plans of food forests and small animal husbandry.  We are in the process of building our dream home, which is heated from our pond loops (geothermal),  and has solar panels and a composting toilet system. We are a new farm so don’t expect established food forests yet but we have eggs for sale and our one of a kind “West Coast Kimonos” for sale at the house. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions.

Rad basecamp in heart of westcoast

Supremely located in the heart of southern Vancouver Island’s west coast, Sea Change Farm and Nursery makes for the perfect base camp to explore rugged coastlines, lush old growth forests, and eclectic seaside communities.

On the extraordinarily rainy September day that we arrived at Sea Change, host Navit met us at the entrance to the farm and welcomed us. Prior to meeting, Navit had been very responsive and provided detailed instructions for our arrival. After greeting Navit, we followed the driveway to the back of the property where the two sites are located, surrounded by wildflowers and other foliage. Large berms on either side of the sites offer lots of privacy, and one is able to immerse themselves in the quiet of nature.

As the rain poured down, we set up our camp, starting, unsurprisingly, with the awning. With camp established, we set out to explore the property. Just steps from the sites, and up a small hill, Navit has set up a small bench and hammock, perfect for lounging on a drier day than when we visited. Although we couldn’t enjoy them at the time, I can imagine the serenity of relaxing atop the hill, overlooking the trees below. A small trail lined with huckleberries cuts down the opposite side of the hill, presumably descending to the creek below, but given the moisture clinging to the brush at the time, we decided to not follow the trail to its conclusion. Farther back along the driveway is the pond, overlooked by Navit’s beautiful home. Beside the pond is a small rowboat, and a couple of ducks paddled their way across as we watched the rain fall, and skipped rocks across the surface.

After exploring the property, we decided to explore the nearby area, walking 40 minutes to the incredible Sheringham Lighthouse, well worth checking out. Along the way, and only a 5 minute walk from the property, is Shirley Delicious, a fantastic café and bakery, that was sadly closed when we visited, but can’t be missed if it’s open. Also nearby is a plethora of places to explore including the beautiful French Beach, Sandcut Beach, Jordan River, China Beach, and Sombrio Beach. Not only do these beaches offer amazing views and beachcombing opportunities, surfing too is a feature at many, but not necessarily for beginners.

Back at camp we hid from the rain and enjoyed the fire until retiring for the night, awaking the next day to a break in the clouds. Despite the poor weather, Sea Change Farm was a wonderful place to relax in the heart of the west coast, and I wouldn’t think twice about staying again.

Sheringham Lighthouse is a 40 minute walk away and well worth a visit, rain or shine.Sheringham Lighthouse is a 40 minute walk away and well worth a visit, rain or shine.Sheringham Lighthouse is a 40 minute walk away and well worth a visit, rain or shine.Sheringham Lighthouse is a 40 minute walk away and well worth a visit, rain or shine.

Cool spot ! Host was lovely even got to try some farm fresh eggs which were delicious ! Very limited service and washrooms are only a few min drive away at french beach. So close to all the great areas on the Juan de Fuca. I stayed at site #2 and was super happy with it.

Navit provided very helpful directions and was clear about what to expect (no facilities etc.). It worked well for a one night stay and the beaches in the area are very nice. Thanks Navit!

They were amazing hosts!! So kind, so hospitable, and the space itself felt like nobody was so far away from anyone else. It was lovely to wake up to roosters!

Very private! We had the entire site to ourselves. Beautiful pond on the property. We walked to a gorgeous lighthouse about a 2 hour round trip walk away.

Beautiful backcountry spot!

Cons: not 100% ideal for car camping ie. cougar/bear warnings, bit of a rough ride in on tires/low-clearance vehicles, no picnic table or place to prep food

Pros: perfect central location to coastal sights and beaches, nice privacy shrubs between sites, awesome spot for an enclosed trailer with toilet facilities/food prep spaces.

Navit was a friendly, communicative host, and provided us with a small table and water whenever we needed it. Overall, highly recommend this spot with the right gear + prep!

Super friendly hosts and very accommodating. The spots felt very private and like any other camping. We just were passing through for one night with a last minute reservation. Happy with our experience.
