This is a share sale of an operating company with all assets owned by the company.

The Deep Auto Court & fishing Camp Ltd. was incorporated under the “Companies Act” on June 5th, 1962. Certificate of Incorporation No. 53,718 Victoria, British Columbia. Canada.

The minute books have been completely updated and amended to reflect the recent changes in the “Companies Act”.

The Deep Bay Auto Court & Fishing Camp Ltd. is now also known by the trade name, Deep Bay RV Park (DBRVP).


The DBRVP is located on the eastern shores of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. It is located approximately 180 km. north of the provincial capital of Victoria and mid way between the towns of Parksville and Courtenay. The DBRVP is centrally located on Vancouver Island.

The DBRVP faces east and fronts on the Gulf of Georgia. The Gulf of Georgia is a large body of salt water almost completely surrounded by land, but, connected to the Pacific Ocean. This protected body of water offers world class boating, fishing, recreation and wildlife viewing opportunities.


This property has been in the same family for 57 years. The DBRVP was known as the Deep Bay Fishing Resort for many years and it has been a very popular salmon fishing camp since 1950.

The DBRVP is a going concern and it is self supporting. The reason for offering this prime property for sale is because the owners (3) have all reached retirement age.

These properties are currently being operated as a recreational vehicle park. This business is self supporting and debt free. We think that the highest and best use for this property would be a resort condominium development, however, because it is in 4 separate titles each lot could be developed separately for residential uses. The property is located about 400 metres from the small harbour called Deep Bay which is one of the best natural small harbours on the east coast of Vancouver Island.

The properties are also adjacent to Denman and Hornby Islands. The picturesque Crome Island Light Station is directly in front of and in full view of the properties.

The beach in front of the property consists of a mixture of sand, gravel and mostly small rocks. There are 2 large tidal lagoons directly in front of the properties. This tidal area is home to many species of shellfish, such as: oysters, clams, mussels. This beach area is also home to many species of waterfowl, such as: Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, loons and diving ducks. There are also many sea mammals, such as: Harbour Seals, California Sea Lions (seasonal) and the occasional pod of Orca’s pass by.
