We have stayed here many times and while the park is clean the cable tv is hit & miss and WIFI always lousy. Tonight cable tv does not work and Wifi is so bad I am using my Verizon cellular to write this review. When we return from our trip we will be looking for another location to camp.

Date of Stay:

We were here after the Labor Day weeekend and the only campers. I would think during the height of tourist season there would be more campers. We stayed here to tour the NOAA faccility & take the glass bottom boat tour of shipwrecks. We chose a site overlooking the water and saw the swans in the distance. Electric only in this section. The front appears to have some sites for electric & water. We filled our fresh water tank at the area where the dump station is. 2 sources of water, potable & non there. It is quiet and a very short commute into downtown. I did get Wifi when we first arrived & checking in at the office but after that no. Put the antenna up and pulled in several tv stations. The only negative is the proliferation of Canadian Geese that eat & leave theri goood size product behind. This is not the first campground that has this issue but you must watch where you walk. Only cash or check is acepted for payment. I do not remember the site only that it was in the back overlooking the water so I will put 1.

Our site was across from the pavillion that borders the bay. I reserved the full hookup pull thru site in March. The views are awesome and it is an easy walk into town which has a multitudes of eateries. We were told when we checked in that there is no WIFI and tv is only what you can pull in with your antenna or sat. dish. The pull thru sites overlooking the water are very short so we had to disconnect our small car & park it crosswise in front of the mh. This site is a corner site so lots of room to the road side. We noticed a fewpeople allowed their dogs to run off leash and into the water which presents a problem if you have a dog that loves people but not other dogs. This is a public area so people come in with their boats and launch from 1 of the 2 boat launches. Most of the park is occupied by seasonal people who seem to have a permanent reserved site from year to year. Some sites are such that it looks like the rigs are winterized and left over the winter. There are many geese and for those who do not know about Canadian Geese, they eat & leave good size droppings behind. We had to watch our step around out site due to this.

This is a beautiful state park. There are many shade trees and plenty of area to walk you dog. We camped here after Labor Day weekend so it was quiet. The lake appears to be clean and a good place to swim on a hot day. There are no sewers at the sites. It is a short drive to the Cross In The Woods Shrine. Also short drive into town for groceries, gas. Listed our site as 1 since I did not retain paperwork. Most of the campground is heavily shaded so if you want sun ask for a site near to the lake.

First, do not use your GPS as you will be directed to the other side of I-90 and will end up on narrow farm country roads going in a circle. It is a very neat & clean campground populated by seasonal campers. This is the northern version of what you would find at campgrounds in FL. for the snowbirds, tennis, bocce, shuffleboard, pool etc.. Lots of room to walk your dog. Downtown Phelps is a short drive away and if you have the time take a drive in to see the beautiful historic town. We have a 35' motorhome and some turns may be a little tight so prior to departure walk your route. What struck as strange is a section of the exit road is between 2 pull thru sites and a tight turn just beyond. I do not think we would have made the turn with the car attached if the site to the right was occupied. We drove through that site to make the turn. While the WIFI connection was good it annoys me that you are allowed only 1 hour on 1 device. For the money spent on a night there should not be a limit. I put 1 as our site since I did not retain the paperwork. The short term camp sites are in the middle grassy area.

There are still a large number of permmanet campers in the campground but sites are kept neat. Most of these sites are occupied by the oil workers. It is quiet. There is plenty of room to walk your dog. Next to the campground is a manufactured homes neighborhood that is one of the neatest & nice I have ever seen. Again, no noise. The only negative is the overnight sites are dirt which makes a mess in the rig wet or dry. There is no cable so we used our antenna & converter box and were able to pull in several channels.They accept only cash or check for payment. I am not sure of site# so I entered 1.

I asked if there was tax & told most likely but it isn't broken out so what is listed is what we paid for full hookup pull thru. Our rig is 35.5' long with a small car in tow and it was very tight gettting into our site with trees all around. A larger rig would be challenged. There appears to be qute a few long termers but as far as I could see nothing was messy. I gues if you are in the business you want long termers for income. The WIFI was excellent which is normally not the case. This is not an on/off the freeway campgrounnd, you have to drive a few miles in. Campground in on a lake and there is a roped off area that has a slide & waterpark like slide and in warmer weather that would be fun for all. Due to the many trees throughout the park the sites are fit in around them. We have had worse.

I will agree with the 2006 post that it is a nice little park directly off the highway. It is convient to restaurant, gas, downtown. When I counted there are 9 pull thru sites with 20 amp service/water/sewer on one side. One of the sites is occupied by a large Fifth Wheel with Camp Host sign outside but it appears it is just for show since the "Host" was never to be seen. Our camping neighbor to one side stated they had been there for a while & had not seen this Host. If one of the duties of the Host is to take care of grounds then the City of Ironwood needs to hire a new person because the grass was high in this section of the campground. On the other side of the park it is hilly & plenty of trees for shade with 20 amp service only. For water you will have to fill your fresh water tank at the dump station. If your rig is over 25' you would have a problem with most of the sites in this section. What I saw were smaller trailers and a medium size Fifth Wheel. Our stay was the start of a holiday weekend and the side with the 20 amp only had many open sites. In back of the campground there is a fence and on the other side is the Fairgrounds. The fair was well over yet there were people living in small campers there. I do not remember our site number so I entered 1. The electric only sites are $15 and basic & tenting are $10. When you arrive you fill out an envelope with your information, check off what site and put either cash or check into envelope then put it through slot in the door.

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.
