We have been coming here for years and it has been consistently a very well run RV park. Sites are very private, hookups great. Although we have used it as an overnight stop, it would be a great destination park for anyone visiting Chilliwack and area.

This was our second time here. Will preface comments with a warning to all dog owners. Beware of Rusty the feral border collie. This dog and its counterpart chase and kill coyotes around the ranch. For no apparent reason, Rusty attacked our 50 lb. standard schnauzer. He had him by the throat and there is no doubt in my mind his intent was to kill. I was able to separate the dogs, incurring several bites. If it had been a smaller dog, he would have died. It put a pall on the rest of our stay and we left a day early. This is a beautiful rustic setting for an rv park. There are currently about 6 sites, but plans are for more. Wonderful walking trails and the opportunity to view a working ranch. Dog control will have to improve.

The Lamplighter has been a consistent winner. In the center of the park is the beautiful home of the owners. Park was a nice mixture of large and medium sized rigs and tent campers. Hookups were excellent. Revelstoke is a charming town full of shops and things to see and do.

If you can get a site along Spring Creek, it is to your advantage. Others are only average. Creekside sites back onto Spring creek and offer a lovely view and the sound of water flowing. While fairly compact, the alloted areas are adquate and could be fairly tight for bigger units. Canmore has exploded in recent years and is on the way to becoming another Banff. Streets are crowded with tourists and shoppers.

This city park is one of the best around. It is well run, sites are well organized with great hookups. Although close adjacent to city park is quiet. On weekends there is always some feature to entertain campers. While there the local classic car club drove their beautiful vehicles through the camp.

Typical provincial park setting. Sites near lake and quite scenic. Water and electric only. Madge lake offers swimming, hiking and fishing. Regulation golf course nearby along with miniature golf.

Date of Stay:

Stayed in park during a Good Samboree. Park filled to capacity. In lite of no sewer connection, shower facilities taxed to the limit. Sites not clearly delineated and water taps situated a long distance from sites.

Date of Stay:

Arrived in 30 deg celcius. Asked for site with 30 amp to run A/C. Unfriendly attendant informed only 15 amp sites available so take it or leave it. Took site, very primitive with shady druggies next to us. Sweltered in heat till 10 PM. Walked sites to discover many full service unoccupied. Moved into full service and left early next morning. In addition, park is poorly maintained. Water source comes out of same pedestal as sewer. Never again.

This is a very large park appearing to have been built for the migrant oil worker population. Well with rough streets. Hookup pedestals were placed in a rather unusual location at the site, making it difficult to hook up. Water taps were ensconced in large insulated drums no doubt to make usable in the cold winter. The were also difficult to use.

Date of Stay:

This RV park is just west of Butte and has seen better days. Occupied by migrant workers. Quite barren of any landscaping. Hookups satisfactory and adequate for overnight. Would not spend a lot of time here.

This is the most we have ever paid in an RV park. While the park is one of the nicer KOA's we have stayed in, we felt the price was exhorbitant. Other than that we would have rated it 10.

Have been using this pk for yrs and find it one of most charming. Layout of sites make it wise to pick and choose if possible. Some sites even more expensive, find you facing next door, which detracts from privacy. Sites close to river may be noisier than wanted. Ask the host to help with choice.

We have been periodic visitors to this park. Most sites rustic but four large sites full service. No cable but excellent antenna reception. Camp hosts very friendly and accommodating. Steep gravel road with graded speed bumps all the way down, making the ride in very rough. Going out even tougher as difficult to power up hill toeing heavy trailer due to speed bumps. This must be improved. Would have given higher rating with better access in.

If RVing over the Duffy Lake road en route to Pemberton and Whistler, Lilloet is a good strategic overnight to gather your wits about you before tackling the winding, switch-backed challenging road with some awesome hills. The owners of Retasket Lodge have attempted to make this small RV park attached to the motel appealing. The complex is surrounded by a chain link fence for good reason. The motel is located adjacent to marginal dwellings. While we were there, a group of rowdy young males were engaged in a booze/drug fest. It was unsettling to know they were so close. Efforts have been made to make a communal outdoor patio with a view. However, the entire place looks to be in a sad state of disrepair. Due mainly to the restlessness of the youth in this depressed community, we will select other options in future.

Astounds me this park receives high ratings. Roads are not paved. No cable. Mostly semi-permanent residents. Pluses: nice mini golf, good hookups. Not a park I would spend more than 1 night, although reserved for 2 because of inflated ratings.
