Sandbar Lake Provincial Park, Ignace, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fairly typical Ontario Procincial Park: the power pedestals are distant (We needed 2 extension cords.); sites have no water or sewer (Water taps are available here and there; there is one dump station.); sites are well-spaced; there are lots of trees. Toilets are pit-type. A toilet and shower block exists, but was closed when we visited late in the season. A fairly rustic trail follows the shoreline. We were here overnight and might have stayed longer, but the park was closing for the season. We would go back. We camped at Sandbar Lake Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Penn Lake Park Campground, Marathon, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Nice little town-run park. There is a self-registration station at the entrance that you can use for one night. Cash or credit card only. This was useful for us, as we arrived on a Sunday when the town office was closed. Only a few campers were here in mid-September. We had campsite #4, directly adjacent to the wifi emitter; so reception for us was good. The wifi is still fairly slow, but it's free. The trail around the lake runs through the park and takes 45 min to an hour to walk. It is in good condition. Local school kids have placed "fairy houses" all along the trail. We were here only for a night but might stay longer another time. Our pull-through site was just long enough for our Jeep and 23' trailer. We camped at Penn Lake Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Park Lake Provincial Park, Lethbridge, Alberta

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

This is a small park in the middle of farm fields. The smell of manure was pervasive outside but didn't penetrate our closed windows. A minor highway is very close but not noisy at night. It was good for an overnight stop, but we wouldn't stay there. We camped at Park Lake Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Serpent River Campground , Spragge, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We received a business-like reception and an orientation. There are a lot of permanent residents. Some of their sites are quite spacious and some have sewers. The short-stay sites are sewerless, pull-through, and quite close. There is not much shade. As other reviewers have noted, the lanes separating rows of sites are narrow and turning can be challenging. Dog walking, when we were there, was limited to the campground on the road side of the railway because the river side was covered in goose droppings. Wifi is strong by the office. We could occasionally get a connection at our site. Road noise from busy highway 17 (Trans-Canada) was constant. Inside the trailer with the windows shut we were not bothered by it. The occasional train did not bother us either. We were there for an overnight and would do the same again but would not stay longer. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Hattie Cove Campground (Parks Canada), Pukaskwa National Park, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We loved this beautiful park. Our site was level, with good privacy and separation from other sites. Most sites are spacious; a few are a little small. None of the sites can be reserved in advance. Fortunately, there were few campers at this time of year. The friendly kiosk guy told us that generally sites are available even in the height of summer. (This season was an exception because national park entry was free in honour of Canada's sesquicentennial.) Backing in was very easy and the electric post was within easy reach. One site housed volunteer camp hosts who were helpful. We got a brilliant low-season rate. Unfortunately, however, the toilet/shower/laundry blocks were closed for renovation. We took several of the interesting walks; they were not always well signposted and we had to search for the route in a few spots. We stayed two nights but wish we had had more time. We camped at Hattie Cove Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park, Kakabeka Falls, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park. Our site was not level, but in any case, we had to park our trailer off the pad and in the grass for the electric cord PLUS an extension cord to reach the outlet situated on the road between our site & the next. It was very difficult to manoeuvre the trailer there. The park office was closed; so we couldn't rent an additional extension cord. (Not parking on the designated pad is a $30 offense, but, fortunately, no one was checking.) Some sites have the electric outlet placed more reasonably. Apart from the electrical issue, our site was lovely. (So I'm not sure how to rate it.) Water was not available on-site and the taps located here and there have no threads; so we couldn't attach a hose to get water into our holding tank. We eventually discovered that potable water is available from a hose at the sewage dump site. We only stayed one night; had the weather been better we would have stayed longer. We camped at Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

The Willows Campground and RV Park, Kenora, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

The reception was business-like. We received no orientation, but they did lead us to our site, which was gravel and mud and not level. It was very dark at night. The stars would have been amazing, but it was cold and rainy. There are quite a few permanent residents, who occupy the better, more private and shady sites, which are mostly back-in. Short-term residents seem to be assigned pull-through sites that are closely spaced with little privacy. Late in the season there were few campers around. The toilets were dirty, and one stall (of two) was out of paper. Perhaps maintenance is better in the high season. Highway 17 (Trans-Canada) is close and loud, but not bothersome inside our closed trailer in the fall. We were here for an overnight and would do an overnight again. Wifi was good by most rv-park standards, with a simple connection: no fussy log-in procedure. We got decent reception at our site; it was a little slow at times, but quite satisfactory. We camped at The Willows Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Moose Mountain Provincial Park, Kenosee Lake, Saskatchewan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely park with good hiking trails. We stayed at Lynwood campground, which has a small children's play area. Highway 9 was slightly audible, but not at all bothersome. Our site was not level. There was power but no water on site. We needed an extension cord to reach the power outlet. But it was a nice site with bush separating it from other sites. We could barely see the neighbours. Self-registration was difficult after dark when there was no light at the kiosk. I visited the washrooms before their daily cleaning and they were a little dirty. There were not many campers in late September. We stayed two nights and would go back. We camped at Moose Mountain Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cypress Hills Provincial Park, Elkwater, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely, quiet, secluded park. It's a bit of a trek off the Trans-Canada Highway, but worth it. The bathrooms were warm and clean. We stayed at Elkwater campground; we passed by Beaver Creek, which has full hook-ups, but looks like a parking lot. Elkwater has more trees and more spacious sites, which we prefer. Visiting an rv dump at the end of the stay is not a big deal. Elkwater has a very good children's play area. The self-registration system is a bit of a pain. We were short of cash, but luckily brought a few cheques with us. The sites were fairly close, without being cheek-by-jowl. Our site was not level. In late September this wasn't a problem as there weren't many campers. This was an overnight stop and we didn't get a chance to walk any of the trails. We will be back at another date for a longer stay. We camped at Cypress Hills Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Seal Bay RV Park & Campground, Courtenay, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Price is CAD including tax. Reception was friendly. This is a lovely campground and easily the best of the small number of places we have stayed so far. Sites are reasonably well spaced, with trees in between. Group sites are unshaded and closely spaced. I suppose if you're in a group, that's what you want. It was fairly difficult to position our trailer in our back-in site so that the slide-out & awning were free of interference. The site was not long enough for our 26' trailer plus the tow vehicle. But it was worth the hassle: the campground has lots of green space and even a pond. The Seal Bay Nature Park is adjacent, and access to the trail system is through a gate in the fence. Showers are $1 per 4 min.! There is a nice clubhouse. Wi-fi was good. We camped at Seal Bay RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The adjacent Seal Bay Nature Park features a beautiful, quiet, open forest. Off-leash dogs can use many trails outside fawning and nesting season (Apr. 1 to Jun. 30). Leashes are required on some trails year round, but this is not indicated on the panel that greets you when you enter the park from the campground. Those who want to know can check the park's website.

Pacific Border RV Park, Surrey, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

Price is CAD, including tax. We overnighted on two separate occasions and would go back, but only for an overnight. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The grounds are well-maintained and clean. The the sites are very close: so much so that on our first stay, the neighbor's slide-out encroached on "our" grassy spot; the same neighbor welcomed us by complaining that our picnic table was too close to one of their two trucks. The majority of the sites are occupied permanently, many by people with jobs in the Vancouver area. There is no view; this is a very urban campground. The bathrooms and showers ($1 for 20 min.) are very clean and modern. There are recycling receptacles for everything, including organics. (Hats off, even if this is mandated by the city.) They have some good facilities: pool, etc. which we didn't use. We would go back for an overnight, but not to stay. Wifi was unusable the first night but OK the second night. Note that the "voucher" number they give you on check-in is valid for only 3 or 4 machines, a ridiculously low number, considering that many people have a laptop, a tablet, and a phone. We camped at Pacific Border RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wild Rose RV Park, Hope, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Check-in was friendly. The camp stretches between the highway and the railway line. Our site was fairly far from the highway and there was not much noise. There is considerably more in the closer sites. There was some train noise, but we didn't find it a problem (possibly because our home town has a train passing through in the middle of the night). Some sites are more private than the one we had (but these may be for seasonal residents?). There is a small dog-walk loop. The washrooms and showers are old but functional. We stopped here overnight and might do the same if there were no better options. We camped at Wild Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The road outside the campground (not the highway) is fairly quiet and can be used for dog walking. A couple of deserted gas stations (key-card access for trucks), located just to the west, have large grounds where it's safe to let a dog run around. (I noticed someone dry-camping in one of them.)

Kettle River RV Park, Rock Creek, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Price is CAD, including tax; sorry I don't have a breakdown. We overnighted on two occasions and had a 10% discount on our second stay. I forgot to ask for the discount on our first stay (We're new at this.) and paid $44. The owners are friendly and welcoming. Our first site had no shade, but the second one did. I don't remember if there was a fire ring; a fire ban was in effect in any case. The closeness of the sites is mitigated somewhat by huge expanses of well-maintained lawn. The grass was green, despite the drought, as they can get water from the river. There is a kids play area. A lot of (friendly) permanent residents camp here. The road noise was evident but did not bother us much. Wifi is good, but can only be received close to the clubhouse/office (They told us this on check-in). We camped at Kettle River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mountain Shadows Campground, Sparwood, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

The sites are treed and reasonably separated from one another. Our site was level, and the others looked to be the same. Personnel were friendly and helpful. Wifi worked well for us, but we were only three sites away from the cabin. A passing camper returning from the showers remarked that they were clean. The main downside to this campground is the proximity to the Crowsnest Highway: some sites actually back onto it. It was noisy at times, but not, fortunately, in the middle of the night. We were there for an overnight, and would stop again for the same. We camped at Mountain Shadows Campground in a Travel Trailer.
