Salmon Lake State Park, Seeley Lake, Montana

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a sweet little park sitting on a shelf above Salmon Lake. Good spacing between sites and some sites will even have a view of the lake. There is a sani-dump in the village of Seeley Lake. The roads and sites are paved and park is well-shaded with mature trees. There are numerous trails surrounding the park as well as boat launches and picnic areas. Cell service is very weak, but with suitable body-contortions, you can find a signal, enough to get your mail. The staff do an excellent job of cleaning the sites and the facilities. The showers are private rooms. They have a feature I've never seen before---an automatic, coin-operated firewood vending machine. $4 for a decent-size bundle of wood. The park is close to a secondary highway, but noise is minimal and traffic at night is almost non-existent. We camped at Salmon Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The village of Seeley Lake is about 8 miles north of the campground. There is a grocery store, fuel, auto parts, and several restaurants, but don't expect to find fine dining. Recommend dining at the Double Arrow Lodge---best food we found and we tried several places.

Lac La Jeune Provincial Park, Kamloops, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

It has been five years since we last stayed here---we stopped because the pine beetle infestation forced the park to essentially clear cut the campground. It is still not as uniformly wooded as it was, but the efforts to restore the forest are starting to show. If you arrive early there are sites that are more wooded/shaded than others, but they are the first to go after the sites closest to the lake shore. But this park has many nice features despite the change in forestation. The lake is nice for fishing and paddling and there is easy access from a number of points along the shore. The shore on the lake in the park has a large grassy area that is gorgeous and the grass looks like a top-notch golf green. Its quiet here except for some very distant highway noise. We are happy to return this campground to our list of favorites and it will continue to improve as the trees grow back. We camped at Lac La Jeune Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Martha Creek Provincial Park, Revelstoke, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great place to go if you are looking for quiet and scenic. A majority of campgrounds and RV parks in BC and Alberta have train noise, but not here. All we heard here was the crackling of our neighbors' campfire and the splash of rising fish on the lake. The lake is great for fishing or paddling and there is a good boat launch available in the park. The only downfall here is the lack of a dump station (nearest is in Revelstoke), so your stay is limited by how far you can make your holding tanks last. There are fresh water taps in the park to fill from. Sites are long and large. Most are pretty close to one another, but when you consider you are right on the lakeshore, somehow you forget about your neighbor. Half or more of the sites are on the lake the rest have views of the lake. Park attendant was helpful and pleasant and the place is very well-maintained. Some sites are reservable. We will return here again and again. We camped at Martha Creek Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Home RV Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Sometimes you pull into a park and it's immediately apparent that you're in a great place...this is one of those. Spotlessly clean, well-laid-out and carefully managed. Sites are huge, perfectly level, and clean with green grass and some distance between you and your neighbor. We stayed here twice this month. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. When we arrived after the office closed, one of the staff came out of her trailer to make sure we were welcomed and had what we needed. The park has some full-timers, but the management makes sure their sites are well-kept, so you have to look hard to see they're full-time units. Mountain Home isn't exactly a "destination" but if you need a night or two stopover on your way through, this is your spot. We camped at Mountain Home RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Camping, Fort Langley, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second review of this park, with some updates. We still like this park and will stay here again, but have a couple of new observations to share with potential visitors as well as the park's management. If anything we find this park is a little OVER-managed. Here's why: There is more vehicular traffic in the park from staff then there is from campers. There are at least 4 park vehicles ( a tractor and several golf-cart-like vehicles) constantly buzzing around the park. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the tractor alone passed our site 50 or more times in one day; and we were NOT in a high-traffic part of the park. It wouldn't be a big deal were it not for the sheer volume of staff traffic. So much so that it's noticeable and bothersome. Consolidating trips might save the park fuel and the campers noise and exhaust. On a weekday when the park was at less than 50% capacity, we were hustled out of our site with a 10:40 knock at our door and a somewhat curt reminder that checkout was at 11:00 and we hadn't showed any signs of breaking camp. This felt decidedly customer UN-friendly to us. We could understand it on a busy, at-capacity weekend, but this was NOT the case. Next time we'll ask for late checkout or hang the "Do Not Disturb" sign. As a result of these recent experiences, we've dropped their stock by one point, but still this is a nice place that is generally quiet, and has many great amenities on and off site. One last thing: arrive prepared for thick, persistent mosquitoes in season. We wished we had brought a screened tent, for even repellent doesn't entirely keep them away. When we stay here in late fall this isn't a problem. We camped at Fort Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Columbia Falls RV Park, Columbia Falls, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is SO much better than any other park (public or private) in the area. The friendly owners are on-site and the place is meticulously maintained and clean. I can think of very very few parks in the U.S. or Canada that couldn't take a lesson or three from the owners on professionally managing an R.V Park or campground. Restrooms, showers, and laundry are absolutely like-new spotless. Sites are clean, level, and hook-ups are functionally perfect. The only thing missing from this park is mature trees for shade. As it's a relatively new place, the trees haven't grown to the point where they are providing much shade. Sites are closer to one another that we would like, but that minor matter is so overwhelmingly outweighed by this parks other amenities and qualities, that you won't give it a second thought. When in NW Montana, we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Perfect base for exploring Glacier Nat. Park! Big-Rig friendly, pet friendly. We camped at Columbia Falls RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mt. Kidd RV Park, Kananaskis, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Location is fabulous with fantastic scenery surrounding this park. The park is well maintained and clean. Beyond that, this park has some significant issues that you should be aware of if contemplating a stay. First, this is a decidedly family-oriented park, and people with kids positively love the place. We didn't mind the din of a park full of happy kids, but if you are looking for a quiet place and want to hear the eagles cry or the chipmunks chirp, forget it. Getting reservations here is especially difficult due to it's reservation policies and practices that favor week-long stays or longer. (If you only want 1 or 2 nights, you have to wait until after a set date and by then most of the park is full-up or only poor sites are left to be reserved). Next, the sites are spacious, but tightly spaced and the loop roads are NARROW, making maneuvering into most sites a real challenge. Even accomplished drivers that normally have no trouble backing in a fifth wheel or large motorhome will find it impossible to keep the trees off the side of your rig. VERY tight and park gets a marginal Big-Rig Friendly rating. I would say that at least half the site do NOT merit the classification of Big-Rig Accessible. Wi-Fi and CATV at this park are essentially worthless. There is a fairly well-stocked store and the many recreational facilities here are good. There are few/no dining options in the area, so it's a hot dog or frozen dinner from the camp store if you didn't plan for your meals while here. We might stay here again, but our experience leads us to believe that if we are not staying for a whole week, we would be unlikely to get reservations for a site we would fit into or could maneuver into. That said, we are quite unlikely to stay here again, even though it is a scenic and well-maintained park. We camped at Mt. Kidd RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Camping, Fort Langley, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first stay at this campground and our expectations were exceeded. The place is well managed, very well maintained, and the sites are large and well-spaced. In spite of the fact that the place was full to over-capacity on the long Canada Day holiday, it remained a quiet and pleasant place to be. One of the really nice features of this facility is its close proximity to many other activities, restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed several of the restaurants just across the bridge (easy walking) in the little village of Fort Langley and visited the historic Fort Langley itself. A really interesting place with active displays of historic lives there at the time it was in operation. Back to the campground, the water quality and pressure were good, CATV had many channels, and although we didn't use the Wi-Fi, we spoke with those who did and they said is was 5x5 (solid!). There are lots of wooded trails to walk just outside the campground (but bring the mosquito repellent!) We plan to return here frequently. A truly enjoyable place for an overnighter as well as a multiple week stay. We camped at Fort Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Port Ludlow RV Park, Port Ludlow, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a sweet little park with super friendly management. Nicely wooded sites with good separation and wide level pads. Big-rig friendly. No TV signal and no CATV so it's satellite or nothing and the nice woods make that a challenge. Wi-Fi is available, but we didn't use. Super quiet: has great trails all within easy walking distance. Mini-mart gas/video store and restaurant just a block or two away. Ask for directions to the Ajax Cafe and go experience a delightful meal in a funky old building where patrons are encouraged to wear one or more of thousands of hats on the walls of the restaurant. This park is in a planned waterfront residential community, but feels like a state park. This park would have rated a 10 if it had CATV. We'll stay here again for certain! We camped at Port Ludlow RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff were very friendly, sites were clean, level and in great condition. Laundry and showers were very well maintained. Nice central location in the Flathead valley; easy drive to Park, Whitefish and Kalispell. Enjoy breakfast and/or coffee across the street at Montana Coffee Traders! We will absolutely stay here again. Only downside is sites are pretty close to one another and shade is minimal. Pet Friendly!! We camped at Columbia Falls RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice staff: they were helpful with local attractions and dining (ask for discount coupons). This is a big park on river with lots of boating activity. Has clean, level sites and is well managed, but most of park is essentially a minimally landscaped parking lot. The private individual restroom/showers are nice. It has easy access to I-90. We would stay here again. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Whistlepunk Hollow Adventure RV Park (formerly Eagle Vista RV Resort), Squamish, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

A newer park, this place isn't quite as nice as the pictures on their website would lead you to believe. Some things you might appreciate knowing that aren't listed on their website: A)The park is on a road that gets heavy truck traffic 7 days a week (gravel and cement plant near park) so road noise is present, but not disturbing. B)Also close to the park is a rifle range, and so gunfire can be heard throughout the park. Again, a nuisance noise, that may or may not bother you. C)There are a large number of "permanent" or long-term RVs in the park. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of other good choices for big rigs in Squamish. Of the ones we looked at this one is by far the nicest, even with the above-noted blemishes. Large sites, but little privacy between sites. Park roads are dirt/gravel, and have a growing pothole problem. No Cable and only 1 or 2 local stations. Gorgeous mountain views surround the park and oodles of recreation choices. Many good places to eat north of the park in Giribaldi Area. Very nice Train Heritage Park is a must see. We camped at Whistlepunk Hollow Adventure RV Park (formerly Eagle Vista RV Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Spring Creek RV Campground, Canmore, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2008 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This is only good for a stopover on the way someplace else; you likely wouldn't want to make this a destination. Park appears to be an after-thought of the developer who is building a retail/condo village all around the park. Sites are very tightly spaced (our slides nearly covered our neighbors picnic table, fortunately he wasn't using it). Roads are in poor condition and lots of domestic rabbits roaming the grounds. The best thing this park has going for it is the scenery of the surrounding mountains. We might stay here again, but would look for other options first. We camped at Spring Creek RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Townsite Campground (Parks Canada), Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2008 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is consistently our best for wildlife viewing. Deer (bucks, does and fawns) roam the campground freely. Outside the campground we have seen bears, moose and elk on every visit. Good spacing between sites, but little tree or brush in the campground. Paved sites with lawn surrounding sites. Strangely, the sewer hookups are in the center of the site pad, which usually entails crawling under your unit to make the connection to the inlet. It is frequently windy in this campground. The drive up to Cameron Lake AND Red Rock Canyon are both HIGHLY recommended: both for the scenery and wildlife. Fires are NOT permitted in this park, except in fireplaces in the group shelters in the campground. A very enjoyable camping experience and we'll stay here again for sure. We camped at Townsite Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.
