Next on your list should be the cheewhat giant. Estimated to be about 2500 years old, it's the oldest tree in Canada and the largest western red cedar in the world.
Kapoor has been locked pretty much all the time for the past year. Even if the gate is open, they have dug out pretty much all of the side trails.
Just whatever you do, don't camp at the hippie commune called poolesland. It's close to tofino and cheap, but people are on every drug imaginable and stuff gets stolen all the time.
It's also a sausage fest and full of dickhead quebecers
I would bring a wheel barrel, or dolly and take your camping gear to rainbow beach or the beach beside it on Kennedy lake. Its nick name was redneck beach before it was closed off a couple years ago but it's called clayoquot arm pp now. You would just have to park at the gate and bring your gear about a km.
The trees are bigger than anything you will see in tofino and the swimming and scenery is even better in my opinion.
To get there you take the west main logging road. It's on your right off the hwy about 4 minutes before the visitor centre. You follow the west main logging road for 15km, you will cross a concrete bridge, just after the bridge you will see a road going to the right. Park there and about half a km you will see the boardwalk down to rainbow beach on the right, or keep going another 200 meters to redneck beach.
You can camp a little closer to tofino at the dump but its nothing but a dirt parking lot.
