On the way to Pender Harbor Resort, the German couple from Cologne with the rented RV stopped in front us to return two bananas an two chocolate snacks. Debbie gave it to them the previous night at the Creekside Campground since there was a friendly bear which visited camp recently to forage.
We arrived at The Pender Harbor Resort at 3:30PM. The office was closed ... the sign said to text Jeff. I did and a few minutes later he called back to check us in. Pender Harbor Resort is mostly a high end RV park with some long term residents. In addition, there are three tent sites, three yurts and seven cabins. A heated swimming pool, WiFi, and a small marina for seasonal moorage is located on the premises. The small store is minimal so it is best to get supplies in Madeira Park prior to arriving at Pender Harbor. The place is very tranquil in a scenic setting. It would be nice if the store had more supplies, opened earlier, or had coffee.
The nearest pub, the Garden Bay Pub, is about a mile walk covering two steep hills. Turned out that the food was excellent, terrific calamari, and fresh halibut fish and chips, Cheesecake with peach raspberry puree was a surprise.
Pender Harbor Resort is better suited car camping, not for bike tourers.
