Shelter Point Distillery
Shelter Point Distillery Self-contained RV sites
Established in 2011, Shelter Point Distillery is located on 380 acres in Oyster River, BC, about halfway up the eastern coast of Vancouver Island. Farmed for generations, Shelter Point remains one of the last seaside farms on the Island.
The 380 acres of land encompasses 2,000 metres of spectacular oceanfront, a natural mosaic of streams, a salmon-bearing river, wetlands, forests and fields — all shared with native wildlife, from bald eagles and great blue herons to blacktailed deer and black bears.
We have implemented an environmental farm/habitat enhancement plan designed to create a living tapestry of the individual components within the property, including soil capabilities, wetlands, farm buildings and forested lands and creeks: all aspects of the farm that influence and interact with each other.
Island Life Expeditions will be working with us and managing 10 Self-contained* RV sites available to book.
*(Self contained means a vehicle that can function without outside resources. Certified motorhomes include a toilet and water container that holds grey water (from the sink and shower) and septic waste. This means you do not require toilet facilities when you park overnight)
With each booking you will get to stay on this private farm, with the beach on one side and acres of Barley fields on the other. (see map)
Each 3 night booking also receives a free tasting and tour with our Spirit guide at the distillery and 10% off anything purchased from the distillery.
Less than 5 minutes away is a grocery store, liquor store, pizza/coffee, walk-in clinic, gift shop and golf course.
Available to book with your reservation are paddle board and kayak rentals, boat tours and charters.
|Max Length (of RV)||45 ft|
