Mountain View Camping, Calgary, Alberta

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

I would like to rate this park higher as it meets the criteria. It is delivering most of what it advertises. It is easy to find. The access is good. Reserving was easy. Check in was quick and pleasant. Interior roads are paved and wide. It is laid out well. There is a good mix of back ins and pull through. There is a small store on site. No cable (that means no damned cable box) but a good number of Over the Air channels. Cell service was good. Landscaping blase'....a few sticks that will be trees in fifty years. Services are well placed (Left rear). This is not a new park. It has been here for years. There has been no attempt made to beautify or clean the place up. There is a private residence on site (separate from the office building) with a yard full of junk. Another compound with a very tacky fence...full of junk. Road noise is not very noticeable. There are some long term units here but none are tacky. (One wonders how you can winter here when it hits -30 and the water is shut off.) This is one of the better parks in the Calgary area (and that's a sad fact). Prairie sunrises and sunsets are very nice. You are about 15 minutes to all services including big box stores. There are no restaurants within walking distance. Calgary has plenty of restaurants and a few that stood out. We would stay again if we had no other choice. We paid $46.66 Cdn inc tax. We camped at Mountain View Camping in a Motorhome.

Shopping inc big box stores about 15 minutes west at Sunridge inc a Hospital. Try an amazing hamburger and milkshake at Peter's Drive-In on 16th Ave and Edmonton Trail. The fries not so much but the burger was a messy delight and the "real" shake was sooooo thick! Easy to get to from the park. Good Italian can be found at Chianti's in Willow Park Village. Nothing fancy but good service and great food.

Swan Lake Campground & RV Park, Vernon, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second stay at this park. New owners took over last year. Improvements are a constant here. They have leveled and landscaped a number of sites and are working on more. Fresh gravel at our site. The chickens and roosters are gone. A new washroom facility is almost ready to open. They still need to work on power sources at some sites. The owners are very friendly and attentive. We hope to be back again next year. We camped at Swan Lake Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

There are paddle boats, canoes, pfds (Life Jackets) available for guests at no charge. There is no "sand" beach but a dock to access the water. Vernon is a good sized town so all services including big box stores are available. There is no store at the park but they do sell ice. There are no restaurants within walking distance. This is a very nice park to stay at even though it is a work in progress. We would return.

Westbay Marine Village RV Park, Victoria, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is still closed but we did a walk about to check it out. Wow. Big improvements from the earlier edition. See the pictures. All of the trees have been removed and the park totally updated. The sites are no longer higaldy pigaldy but nicley laid out. The perimiter roads are pave and the sites concrete and grass. Access to the park is new. A much wider road has been added. The restaurant has not been torn down since I suspect it will reopen. I'm betting that it should be up and running in a month. Looking forward to staying here again. We camped at Westbay Marine Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tim's By the River Campsite, Falkland, British Columbia

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

We needed a place to stop as we were one day early for our reserved site in Vernon. We saw the sign for Tim's but could not see the park so we headed on it. Access from highway 97 is good. We were met at the entrance by the owner and were told to pick a spot and he would be by later on to collect payment etc. Check in was quick and pleasant. FYI we did notice a sign that said the park was "rustic". Interior roads were packed gravel. No ruts or pot holes to worry about. Foliage could have been cut back in some spots but there were no over hanging branches or serious obstructions. We expected to see a number of sites that were "by the river" but saw only one but it was taken. No surprise. There were a number of site options. There were pull throughs that could accommodate 45 footers but they were quite narrow. There were some odd shaped back ins. Some deep and some shallow. All spaces had good privacy. Most appeared fairly level. We chose 13. It was a wide, grassy, long enough for our coach and tow, back in spot. There were no close neighbors. That's pretty much the end of the "I'm okay with the rustic part". This park has potential but the operator either doesn't have the drive or the money to invest in making this a very very nice stop over. The Salmon River does run along side. The sites that exist beside the river need to be opened up and it looks like there might be ten or so. Brush needs to be cut back and a lot of garbage and scrap metal that has just been tossed into the bush needs to be removed. Add even just Power, Water and a Dump Station would make this a viable attraction. Right now the place is a dump. The owner's large cur dog wanders freely, there is a fire ban in place but we noted two camp fires burning. There is ONE outhouse and a make shift solar shower that is just ugly and dirty. No one bothers with rules. We paid $20.00 (cash only) and will never be back. We camped at Tim's By the River Campsite in a Motorhome.

Orchard Hill RV Park, Kelowna, British Columbia

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

We paid $46.80 Cdn per night. Our GPS took us directly to the park. Without it we would probably have hesitated at the entrance. Another RV Park shares the access road and signage could be a little better. You must cross a cattle guard to get into the park and the road to and inside the park is mostly very dry dirt. Most park users drive very slow but not all. If you travel at a little more than a crawl a lot of dust billows. Check in is very easy. A bulletin board meets you just after entering the park with your name and site listed. You are then directed to a self check in station where you will find your Cable package (I do hate "the box"). Later you have a visit from one of the Camp Managers who will take your money and provide you with information and the Internet password. The operators are very friendly and helpful. They will sell you very fresh, onsite grown, produce (in season). There are only 9 sites (6 pull thru and 3 back in) plus one Over Flow site that has just power and water. All services are properly placed on the left side. The sites are terraced but not all are level front to back. They are long enough to accommodate a 45' with tow easily. We had a bit of a problem getting our cable installed. Owner arrived and in a few seconds he had our issue ironed out. WiFi is usually very strong. We usually had a good strong connection. We did not try to stream any video but, for what we needed, it worked well. We did have problems with our power. We were here for just over 3 weeks and during a very hot period. Our 30 AMP service breaker would pop sometimes five or six times a day with just the A/C running. We could not safely leave our dog unattended in the coach. Owner blamed in our surge protector. The problem still existed after we disconnected it. Others too had the same problem. Because of this and the dust, we will not return. We camped at Orchard Hill RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kentucky Alleyne Provincial Park, Merritt, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is quite far away from any urban area. It is quiet, serene and the lake views are very nice. Access from the highway is a paved road that is somewhat narrow. There were a few places that could be a problem if two large units met. Traffic is sparse though. There is no check in. Find a vacant spot and the Camp Host will visit and collect your "cash". This is NOT big rig friendly. We have a 28 foot Class A and tow a Jeep. We had to disconnect in order to maneuver. As others have mentioned there are three areas. We stayed in the "Middle" area overlooking the middle lake. We had a pull through that was a little unlevel. There are no "services" at any of the sites. Standard generator rules are enforced (9:00AM - 11:00AM and 5:00PM until 7:00PM only). Interior roads are paved and sites are coarse gravel. A table and fire pit are standard. Firewood is available from the Camp Host. A fire ban was in effect so there were NO wood fires allowed. Propane fire rings were acceptable though. There are no street lights of any kind around so the stars were amazing. There is no over the air TV, no cell service, no internet. Satellite would be available at most sites. Trails link all three sections of the park. Restricted boating is allowed and the lakes are stocked with trout. The middle lake fishing is for children only. We would like to come back in the fall when the nights are cooler and foliage will be turning color. We paid $18.00 Cdn per night inc tax and feel we paid a fair price. We will return. We camped at Kentucky Alleyne Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Othello Tunnels Campground and RV Park, Hope, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Access to the park is good. It is about 15 minutes east of the good sized town of Hope. Check in was quick and easy. An elderly couple appear to operate the park. They were friendly and offered information about the surrounding area. The office also serves as a small store. It offered snack food, ice etc. The park is located in a mountain valley so noise travels easily. That being said, the road noise was tolerable. There was NO cable or WiFi. Telus and Bell cell services worked very well. Sites are all back in and some larger rigs might have a problem on a few of the corners. Power, water and sewer all worked well and were properly placed in the site. Roads are hard packed gravel/dirt and could use some work. Sites are sparse gravel, dirt and uncut, dry grass. Most of the sites are heavily treed. We did no try for any over the air channels We had a table and fire pit. The fire pit was unusable because a fire ban was in effect. The forest was very dry and a number of wild fires were burning in the province. We noticed a small playground with dated equipment and a stocked fish pond. There is no marked pet area. We did not see any dog droppings around and leash rules appeared to be being followed. A number of permanents call this place home. Most were in good condition. This park is crying for a serious upgrade. We would use this park for an over nighter again. We paid $38.85 Cdn and would return. We camped at Othello Tunnels Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Anmore Camp & RV Park, Anmore, British Columbia

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

I can't believe we have missed this gem for so many years. We normally stay at a different park when in the Greater Vancouver area. We had to be in Vancouver on quite short notice and this is the only place that could accommodate us. Check in was quick and easy. Rules are basic and enforced for the most part. Access roads are wide enough to easily get around. Services were placed midpoint on the left side and all worked well. We were here during a heat wave and our A/C worked well. The park has a wilderness feel to it even though you are only about 30 minutes from down town Vancouver (depending on traffic). The spaces are very much bigger than the competition. There is no cable TV but the Wifi is so much better and included in the nightly rate. There are a few "permanents" but their sites are neat and tidy. You can tell they are long term by the size of the propane tanks next to them but that's about all. The only draw back is the parameter road conditions. The asphalt is badly broken in a number of areas but a new layer of gravel has been installed. I'm guessing that new pavement is in the works. The washrooms appear new and are quite posh. There is a tennis/basket ball court, badminton, games/TV room. The pool is a little on the cool side but very refreshing on a hot day. The entire park is fenced and gated. No worries about bears visiting. As mentioned by others, right next door is a provincial day use park. There is a section where dogs are able to run free and access the lake water. Also a few good hiking trails to choose from. We try to stay away from "family friendly" parks but this is one that we will come back to. No restaurants or major services are with in walking distance. Across the street is a small country store (good ice cream). Port Moody with all services is about 10 minutes away. You owe it to yourself to stay here if you are in the area. We camped at Anmore Camp & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:      

Reserved late and were told we may have to go into overflow as it is peak season. We got a regular site on arrival. Check in was quick and easy. Pretty much all sites are pull though. Long enough for the coach and towed. Wide enough for both slides and room to move about easily. For an urban park it was quiet. Sites are level, gravel with a bit of grass. No fire pit. Tall pine trees separate sites and our coach is now covered in sap. Expect to have to wash your rig when leaving. Just the basic full service W, P, S, Cable "with no box" (and a very good selection of channels). Wifi is free Tengo which worked very well (surprise!!!). There is a pool, laundry, meeting room, library, playground etc. This is a fairly large park. There are some full timers but they are all tidy. There are a lot of....."Sun Birds". Folks from the hot states (California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas etc. here escaping the summer heat). As expected lots of dogs but it appears that 99% are good owners and pick up the poop. There is an abundance of cats here and most roam free. Speed limits don't appear to be enforced. The grass could be cut a little more often but for the most part this is a peasant park to stay at. It is a bit of a travel to visit Vancouver but quite close to the ferries and the city of Whiterock is very nice. There are no amenities within walking distance but everything you need is within 5 to 10 minutes away by vehicle. We paid $46.10 Cdn inc Tax per night. If in the area we would stay here again. We camped at Peace Arch RV park in a Motorhome.

Check in was quick and easy. For an overnight stay all they needed was name, home town, rigs license number and a signature. Our Good Sam membership had just expired (clerk just reminded me to re-up) and we were done. Cable TV (without a box) and Wifi included. Cable worked well. A good selection of channels. Wifi sucked so bad. Logged on to check e-mail and that was painful. Sites are gravel base. Services placed well. Check in clerk said the pull through sites are are 65 feet. I think they are 10 feet shy but still plenty of room for us. There is a picnic table at all sites but no fire pit for the pull throughs. I checked out the restrooms and they were very clean. Free showers. There is a doggie walk with waste can for droppings. A small play ground with older equipment but in good condition. Many new cedar trees have been recently planted (tags are still showing) and new gravel added to many of the sites. Bell and Telus cell services worked very well. There are no restaurants or stores that are in walking distance. There is a small store at the office. Trains were heard in the distance and if you are in the far back, road noise might be an issue. There are a few permanents and a few of them could use a good power washing but all in all a very neat, tidy well looked after park. We paid $45.36 Cdn inc tax after GS discount. Had Wifi worked a lot better I would say that we recieved good value for our dollar. Wifi is a fail though so I think we paid a little too much. We will still return though. We camped at Wild Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground, Burnaby, British Columbia

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $66.00
Overall Rating:      

Easy access from the Freeway (Highway 1). Signage to park is very good. Check in was straight forward. Interior roads are paved and fairly wide. No vehicle parking on roads so navigating is very easy. This is an urban park so expect traffic noise. There is train tracks near the park and they rumble by a couple of times a day. The noise is tolerable. There are no shops or restaurants within walking distance. Lougheed Mall is a five minute drive. Our site (44) was right beside the access path to a regional park with good trails. Great for walking the dog, bikes and access to a river for fishing. No motorized vehicles allowed. This is a full facility park. There is an indoor pool, hot tub, exercise room, laundry facilities, store, RV wash station etc. A clean well run operation. There are a few full time units all are in good condition and no junk or clutter visible. Site are pretty tight but are separated by cedar hedges so it's not that bad. Cable is an extra $3.00 per day and not worth it. Less than a dozen chanels but at least NO BOX. Internet is Tengo pay as you go. We never tried to log on as we have our own hot spot. We paid $66.00 Cdn per night plus tax plus cable and because of the parks proximity to Vancouver and area, we feel we received fair value and will return. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Check in was easy as we had reserved (Do not arrive early or you will wait until 1:00PM.). Lady in office was pleasant and helpful. Park is easy to maneuver with paved road. Sites are well marked and easy to find. Lots are gravel and pretty level. (Gravel base was welcome because we had lots of rain. Drainage was good.) Space between sites was pretty good for an urban park. A cedar hedge separated sites. Shore services are to the front so have long hoses if your facilities are to the rear. Basic cable is free but you have to install the silly box. There is a $5.00 fee for the box (non refundable). Power is 50 amp but an adapter is lent to you if you are only 30 (no charge). Basic Wifi is free and up-gradable for a fee. The park is gated and locked at night. Probably 90% of the guests are permanent but there is no junk. All of the units are very well maintained. There are two large grassy areas that we used to exercise the dog. Surprisingly, we did not discovery any dog droppings as we noticed a number of dogs running free. A swimming pool is available (in season) and a hot tub year round. Exercise and meeting room is available. It is very close to Highway 1 so expect lots of road noise. I would not consider this a base for visiting the Vancouver area. Vancouver proper is still at least an hour away if traffic is light. We enjoyed our stay here and will return when in the area. We paid $46.00 Cdn plus tax and feel we received fair value. We camped at Eagle Wind RV Park in a Motorhome.

Osborne Bay Resort, Crofton, British Columbia

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first trip out this year. A little later than normal because of the cool weather we have had. Check in was a non event as we were given our site number when we reserved (and reserve you should. This can be a very busy park). We simply set up camp and looked after the financials Monday morning when the office opened. Our site was up on the hill this time and the ocean views were beautiful. All of the services worked well except the Wifi (barely good enough to check e-mail). Basic Cable TV is included in the nightly fee but I really hate having to install the "box" (not the operators fault but that of the provider). You can upgrade the offerings including adding internet should you desire, Within an easy walk are small stores for groceries, pubs and restaurants. The nearest full service center including big box stores and medical facilities is Duncan (about a 15 minute drive). There is plenty to do in and around Crofton. Lots of walking and hiking trails, fishing, whale watching, investigating the tidal pools, and the ferry to Salt Spring Island is almost next door. We paid $27.00 per night plus tax and we feel we received good value for our dollar. We will return. We camped at Osborne Bay Resort in a Motorhome.

Lamplighter Campground, Revelstoke, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed here a number of times but I'm sure the last time we rated it was years ago. This is a convenient overnighter for us although, on occasion, we have spent a couple of days here. This park is always clean, neat and tidy. Spaces are a little close when it's busy. The owners are on site, friendly and make sure park rules are obeyed. This is an older park but everything always works as it should. Easy access to Highway 1 but far enough that you don't hear traffic. There is a shortcut to downtown across a single lane bridge. A foot path that follows the river right next to the park is great for walking your pet. You will hear train noise no matter where you are in Revelstoke. Trains are partly why the town exists. The noise never bothers us. Sites are on grass. Most are pull through. BASIC Wifi worked but don't expect to stream any video. We will return. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The drive to "The top of the world" (Mount Revelstoke) is very nice. Scenery is amazing. Down town there is an outdoor market on Saturdays. The Rail Road Museum is worth the visit.

Camper's Haven RV and Tent Park, Donald, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We unexpectedly found ourselves looking for a place to stay quite late in the day. Everything in Golden was full so we headed for Revelstoke. About 30 minutes west of Golden we came upon Campers Haven. We were given their last open site. 30 Amp and water but no sewer. All sites are very accessible long pull thrus. We didn't have to disconnect our Towed. Service was very friendly. Park was clean and well laid out. We spent a quiet night there. A great place to overnight. The closest place for groceries and fuel is Golden so make sure you are stocked up before you arrive. We will stop by again. We camped at Camper's Haven RV and Tent Park in a Motorhome.
