This is primarily a fishing resort on Horse Lake, so if the fishing is poor, there is not much else to do, although swimming off the dock is possible. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. Sites are laid out in kind of a random pattern and are close together. They even use a farm tractor to tow trailers in and out of tight spots. You may not be able to have your tow vehicle at your site. It looked to be the kind of place where people often have group camping trips / gatherings.

Simply amazing views of the Thompson River canyon and surrounding mountains. There are several hiking trails at the campsite, and some interesting history as the Cariboo Wagon Road can be accessed from here. Really big rigs could have an interesting time getting in here as the access road from Highway 1 is steep and winding in sections. The sites themselves are quite spacious with lots of room between them.

We stayed for 2 nights and that was about right. The river out back is great and swimming or wading is do-able, at least in August. The campground is next to an industrial area that seemed to have been abandoned. Wi-Fi worked quite well. Roadways are clean and manicured, reminded me of an RV park in Palm Springs. Lots of ospreys, turkey vultures, and other birds. Scenery is nice.

A very nice park, where they bend over backwards for their customers. All the staff are super friendly, and the facilities are simply immaculate. We liked the fact that there is a clubhouse and game room, since during our December visit it was dark by 5PM. Roads are gravel and our site had a bit of mud, but this is the West Coast in winter. Wifi was the best of any park we have ever stayed at. Tons to do in the area. Certain sites back on to the ocean, and the $43 rate I posted reflects this. Other sites in the park are cheaper. There is the oil refinery across the bay to the right, but as others have noted just look to the left! One item of note: some sites have the sewer hookup near the front of the sites, so you may need a longer than normal sewer hose.

I am pleased to report that the management of these campgrounds has improved dramatically since the current operator took over. North Beach is our favorite of the 3 campgrounds in this park. It is cheaper at $21 per night, and much closer to the beach. Sites are huge, and quite private. The campground was very peaceful. The beach itself is superb; but we were here during a hot spell. This is a rain forest, so be prepared for wet weather anytime. Also, due to the close proximity to Vancouver, check-in lineups are frequent. Reservations are a must; sites are usually snapped up 3 months in advance. There are a couple of small concessions in the park, but items like fuel and groceries are 20km away so it is best to be self contained. There is little or no cell phone reception in the campsite itself, but we got a good signal down at the beach.

The park itself is a 5 but the management is a 10; they are very friendly and helpful. Sites are pretty cramped, and you likely won't be able to open your awning. The sites down near the small lake help remove the feel of being right smack in the middle of Everett. Very little road noise. Lots of permanent residents. Wi-Fi is spotty at times. We were there for a softball tournament, and for that purpose the park was fine. They periodically stock the lake with pan sized trout, and for $12 you can get a permit to catch and keep five of them.

We used this park as a base to visit Seattle from, and it could not have been more convenient. It is minutes to the Seattle / Bainbridge ferry. Some of the older sites down near the office are close together, but we requested one near the back. The site we got, 15, is set amid cedar trees and there is a feeling of privacy. Everything: water, electric, cable, wi-fi, worked fine. The park was very quiet, and noise from adjacent State Route 305 was not an issue at all. The owners bend over backwards to be helpful, but they are not in your face. The park is pet friendly; our dog made lots of friends there! The nearby town of Poulsbo is worth a visit.

Nice large back in sites, and easy to maneuver around the park. This park is very family and pet friendly. The west section is seasonals but their sites are very well kept up. Overpriced, but after all this is Drumheller. There is a short trail to what they call a "beach" but in reality it is a muddy bank down into the water. However, it is easy to wade out to a gravel bar for a dip on a hot day. Bring bug spray though! Wi-Fi worked most of the time. This is the one we would chose if we returned to Drumheller.

A nice, rustic park albeit a little overpriced. Sites are easy to get into and are nice in a treed setting. We did not use the pool but there were plenty of families there. The upper level has full hookups while the lower meadow area is dry camping (note: if you stay in the lower meadow, the mosquitoes can get nasty!) There is a good pet walk in the forest. This campground is very family and pet friendly. My reason for the 7 and not an 8 or 9 is that their garbage bins are not bear proof, and there is plenty of evidence of Boo Boo hauling trash into the forest, so local bears have obviously become human food habituated. We actually had to chase a bear into the bush the day we stayed. Any campground operator in bear country ought to know better.

This was a great find while en route to Saskatoon. You self register and leave your payment in an envelope, so be sure to have cash or cheque. Great views of the surrounding prairies. Rosetown is a cute tidy little town. This campground was very quiet, and made a very convenient overnight stop.

We had a spot right on the lake, and it was great! Wonderful sunsets and nice breezes. The mosquitoes like the lake, too, though, so bug spray is handy. The sites are rustic, with dirt roads. That may not appeal to some, but we liked it. The hosts were pleasant and friendly. There are some seasonal / permanent residents. The campground has two parts: an open parking lot like area above the lake, and the more wooded section down where we were. We could have had 30 amp up in the big open aforementioned section but we chose to forgo A/C and have 15 amp down by the lake. We would definitely return.

This is a very nice campground (we stayed at Robson Meadows). Sites have space between them in a forest setting, giving lots of privacy. There are a variety of trails close by, to suit all levels of ability. You can hike to Berg or Kinney Lake, or take the 10 minute walk down to the Fraser River. There is a gift shop within easy walking distance. This is dry camping, but the showers are free in the washroom buildings. You will need $5 for the RV dump, located across the highway on the Berg Lake road.

Two words: don't come! We took one look and drove on out. The campground was full of dilapidated rigs (nothing against that; I've driven some myself) but there were no people. My daughter's comment was that this is where trailers come to die.

Date of Stay:

Very family friendly park, about 30km from Saskatoon. They do have a 2PM check in time so if you arrive early you will be waiting around. The lake is swimable but a little slough like. We liked our stay and would definitely come back.

Simply an excellent spot in world class scenery. You can't help but lift your eyes at the towering mountains. You have to pay $19 for a National Park entrance fee in addition to the campground fee but we felt it was more than worth it. The town of Field is about 8km away and it is worth a look. The trail up to the Spiral Tunnels is great also. This is dry camping but there is a sani station located on the road into the park. I highly recommend this campsite.
