I dunno, given the choice of Paris and boondocking and your bride chose boondocking? You certainly have a keeper there!
According to Woodalls, the two most interesting places on Vancouver Island are:
Malahat Mountain Meadows RV Resort
(888) 478-5452 who seem to be fairly small, but in a beautiful area (and they have all the goodies, 50 amps, Internet, Pets welcome, Swimming etc). But, they only got two "W"s (Woodalls rating system. That might mean they stink, or they have just not had many visitors, though). Their web site is www.victoriacampgrounds.com
and talks a lot about seclusion, back to nature, etc.
The other one has four "W"s each for both Facilities and Recreation, so I would have high expectations of a Good Time there. It's called Country Maples RV Resort
, and you can find them in the www.holidaytrailsresorts.com
website. It's a bigger camp, and has a few more amenities, but have a look on the web.
The second one appears to be a bit larger, but both seem to be quite enticing, and reasonably priced.
Both are on Vancouver Island of course, but don't forget that there are tons of beautiful places and things to do on the Mainland, too!
I'm jealous! That's not a bad drive for you, but it's a l-o-n-g way for us here in Ontario and points east.
Have a great time there!
