Fort Rodd Hill adds tent-like cabins

Visitors can camp out in style at West Shore national historic site

Snuggle within the walls of historic Fort Rodd Hill with new overnight accommodations.

Park’s Canada’s newest accommodation – a cross between a tent and cabin – offers visitors the rare opportunity to sleep steps from Victoria’s iconic Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Site starting May 17.

“Parks Canada oTENTik tents offer a unique blend of homey comfort and a taste of outdoor adventure, an ideal way for visitors who want to discover the joys of camping but prefer the comfort of a bed and a campsite already set up,” said Matthew Payne, Site Manager of Fort Rodd Hill National

Historic Site.

Each Parks Canada oTENTik tent is designed and made in Canada and equipped with a table, chairs and three beds to accommodate up to six visitors.
