Welcome to Wandering Hoof Ranch! Located in Port Alberni on Vancouver Island.

Camp amongst the trees and fields at Wandering Hoof Ranch. Bring your own tents and enjoy 10 beautiful acres.

You’ll have access to our field beside our Scottish Highland cattle fold and chickens! Aside from the incredible views, our biggest attraction is the highland cattle, which graze the fields or relax in the shade. The cows are friendly and have no issues with having their photos taken. The chickens too, will peck around your feet and aren’t the slightest bit bothered with you making yourself a home in their domain.

Enjoy stunning views of the Beaufort Mountain Range while you camp. The sunset views here are absolutely breathtaking.

Amenities include a toilet and potable water. Campfires are permitted as long as there is no fire ban.

Highland beef steaks, half a dozen eggs, firewood, breakfast and a seasonal garden box are all available to purchase! Please see the extras below for more information and add them to your reservation at the time of booking.

Port Alberni is a unique and friendly enclave where you can experience an engaging blend of outdoor and indoor activities and attractions. The city, and surrounding valley, enjoy a moderate climate and are well-known for their breathtaking scenery. Surrounded by mountains, freshwater lakes and streams, the area is wildly popular for its salmon sport-fishing, scuba diving, kayaking, windsurfing, boating, waterskiing/wakeboarding, hiking, mountain biking, ATV'ing, golfing and wildlife viewing.

Had an amazing stay at the wandering hoof ranch! The property is so beautiful and very spacious. My friends and I felt very welcomed by Diana and her family. Response time was very quick anytime we had any questions. Would definitely stay here again!

Diana's camping spot is set amongst the rolling hills with a great mountain sunset. The tent site is secluded and is an easy check-in and set up! Would recommend this to anyone, thanks Diana!

The animals were beautiful and the owners are friendly. Cows, chickens, and even a big white rabbit. A lovely, safe place to camp out. Access to water and a toilet which was good. The animals weren't too loud in the korning but there were a few distant "MOOOOOS". Overall a nice experience.

We stayed at the wandering hoof ranch for one night on our way up island. The campsite is located soo close to shopping centres but far enough that you feel like you are in the countryside. We bought free range eggs off Diana and loved them and the chicken they came from. (Very friendly) Unfortunately, the Highland cows were scared of us, if we walked by them they would run off. But one day we went out for food and came back to a baby cow in our campsite. (It squeezed through the fence) super cute moment.

Gorgeous mountains in the back. Wonderful view 😍
Baby cow!!

We really enjoyed our camping experience at Diana's campsite. It is super quiet with pretty decent views of the mountains. We had many animal friends to keep an eye on us, some beautiful cattle and some chickens, we even met some deer too. Overall it was a good camping trip. Fresh water is available and there is an outside toilet also.

Such a peaceful place to stay. Very private as it’s down a small hill and far back from the road. Fun experience to camp beside chickens and cows! I would definitely stay here again if I find myself camping on Vancouver Island again.
