Love this campground. We had car problems so this was an easy walk into town, marina,etc.. The price includes the online reservation fee. While we could see the other campers there was enough room between sites. We enjoyed the shows at the Interpretive Center and the many paved walkways. Each night after dinner the deer came into the park. The only negative would be the numerous holes made by the ground squirrels. Some are break an ankle size. No fires due to dry conditions.

The price includes the online booking fee but not the daily cost to be in the Icefield Park. The roads are paved with sites on each side o the road. There are many sites in this campground thus busy. It was quiet at night. When reservations for this campground opened I made the reservation. When we were there the campground was full for the night so book early. Sites are paved but not concrete. No fires due to dry conditions.

We are from US and this is our second visit with first in 2007. We loved this campgound in 2007 and still love it today. We have measured all Nat'l parks against Jasper's Whistler and nothing equals it. 2 elk appeared and grazed in campground. Next day deer came out. The sites are spacious with plenty of trees, shrubs between. It is simply awesome! Price does not include the daily rate charged by Parcs Canada for entrance into Icefield Parkway. As soon as online reservations opened I reserved. When we checked in there was a sign indicating campground was full. There is an online booking fee which I included in the price.

We are a 35' motorhome with a small car in tow and we could not fit in the campground with the trees. We were directed to camp by the tennis couts and it worked out well. It is next to the tennis courts. Nice, clean park to walk around with exercise equipment, swimming area, playground. On the other side of the park is another section of the park that will accomodate smaller rigs and this section is shaded. Within walking distance is a restaurant that we were unaware of until we walked our dog. Had we known it was there we would have had dinner. Easy on/off the highway. Would stay here again. Running the genarator we also pulled in 3 tv stations but out of respect for surrounding homes we turned it off at 8:30.

The grounds are very clean and it is a small park that is a distance from town where all the stores & restaurants are located. There is a small nature walk that is good to walk a dog but it isn't a long walk. The WIFI was spotty at best. There were 5 tv channels only but we were able to get US news channel out of Seattle, Canadian news channel out of Vancouver.

This is Canadian since I have no idea what the conversion rate is at this time. It was fairly easy to find during the day but it could be a problem at night. The owner is friendly. We had a full hookup pull thru for 1 night. Nice view of the pond. Wifi was excellent but no tv service. It was easy on/off the highway with some road noise but nothing that would keep us awake. Have no idea what site # so I entered A.

It is a smalll park that is neat & clean. So far the Wifi works good. There is no tv service. Only a few pull thru sites so as stated in previous post make a reservation if it is peak season. I will warn you this park is out of town and diffficult to find. Our new Garmin GPS did not recognize the RV park nor the address. If you are coming from Prince George end go through the Town of Smithers, continue past the airport and a distance later you will see only signs stating cabins, RV on the right hand side. The road is across from the Adams Igloo Wildlife Museum. If you pass the rest stop for Glacier View you have missed the park. Coming in from South Hazelton the road to the park is directly after the Glacier View rest area on your left.

This is a good park to use as a base to tour from. The sites are close and if you are not near the office the Wifi is non existent. The cable tv hookup works well. The owner has free cookies in the office which is a nice touch. While you can walk your dog around there is only the grass at each site for Fido to go on and that isn't too great for the people at that site. Outside the park is a sidewalk that I used to walk our dog. Fred Meyers market close and restaurants & shopping a short distance.

Date of Stay:

The park is paved and very tight. Every inch of ground is utilized for sites. There are only a few pull thrus that are so short most rigs with tows will still have to be disconnected which defeats the purpose of a pull thru site. Many sites are occupied by permanent campers. If your site is near the office you will hear road noise. The positive aspects is the location to the Boeing Facotory and the Old Birds Museum, both well worth the time. You will have commercial jets flying overhead as the jets produced by Boeing are test flown. Grocery stores and shopping nearby. The people in the office are very helful & informative.

We were there for 1 night and had a pull thru site with water and 30 amp service, no sewer. It was also hot when we were there but had no problems with electric. It was easy on/off the interstate. The dog park is located a distance from the RV sites but it is a good walk for both you & Fido. There is also a leash free dog pen while not fancy it will do. We decided to head into downtown, a short drive away for dinner. Wished we had left earlier to be able to tour around. Overall the park is clean and good for 1 or several nights.

We stayed at the park because it was the closest to town and the Old Works Golf course. It is quiet and there ia a very nice paved path that runs along the creek to take the dog for a walk or yourself. There are deer around and if you walk at the right time they will be out to see. There appear to be several permanent residents and some rigs are in good shape while others have a run down look to them. I did not see any pull thru sites, only back in sites. Durinig our stay we took the tour around town and it was very informative. Please take the time to see a movie in the historic theater and you will be happy you did. If you are a golfer play the Old Works Golf Course designed by Jack Nicklaus. While we were at our site I smelled sewer odor off and on and could not figure why until the day we left. Luckily we only had the grey water hose opened while we were there because when we removed it the water was overflowing from the sewer. It appears the site next to us also had the same issue. The cable tv is another issue. It is Comcast and if you have an analog tv you must get the box fromm the office and do a special connection to get tv. The first box did not work but the second did. Wifi works if you are at or very close to the office otherwise it is not good. I used my ipad with cellular service. I am not sure what site we had so I entered A.

There ia some noise from the interstate and train but it is not unbearable. Great location to tour Bozeman and surrounding areas. The owners are wonderful people and very helpful. I used the laundry facilities and found then to be clean. WWe had a pull thru site and I cannot remember the site number so thsat is why there is an A.

Date of Stay:

Great location to tour Virginia City and Nevada City, a short drive away from both. The owners are great people and very accommodating. While the sites are close most campers are respectful of everyone. Due to the extreme dry conditions no fires were allowed however the town did have fireworks on the Fourth of July and the view was awesome from the deck of the office. The laundry room is very small and clean with 1 washer & dryer. Had a great time here and would return if we are ever in the area again. When we were there there is a for sale sign for the Rv Park.

The trains are loud and it is a drive into Spokane on the interstate. Restaurants are a 15 minute drive away. Very close sites. The off leash dog pen is excellent. Folks at desk helpful. If I were to visit the Spokane area again I would opt for an RV park closer to the city.

Date of Stay:

This is an urban RV park. The sites are very close, completely paved so no grass, some trees and the majority are permanent residents. There is a play area for children and an indoor pool which we did not use and I am not sure is open for use. If you are a light sleeper or traveling with dogs that require a mile long walk this is not the RV park for you. The dog walk area is outside the RV park gate on 1 side only and measures approximately 100'X25'. There are waste bags readily available but some ignorant owners feel they do not have to comply and I find that disgusting. There is a sidewalk that you can walk your pet but it borders business's and once again some left dog waste. There is non-stop road noise from very busy I-90 that is next to the 2 one way roads in front of the RV park. If you require quiet surroundings to get to sleep this is not the RV park for you. The people at the office are very helpful with information on getting into Seattle etc.. We opted to drive the short distance to the East Gate park & ride and ride the express bus into Seattle each day. You can walk or ride you bike to this location also. We are both in our 60's and the fare is $1 per person each way and parking is free. Great deal when you do not have to deal with all the traffic going into the city and premium price to park your car. The people in the RV office will provide you with paperwork detailing bus times & stops. One word of advice is to arrive at the park & ride before 11 AM otherwise you may not get a parking spot. This RV park fit our needs which was to be close enough to Seattle to avoid an hour long commute. We hired a dog service to come to our motorhome twice a day to walk our dog to allow us flexibility. This worked perfectly. We would stay here again if we find ourselves in this area again.
