New owners have taken over in Spring 2015. Gravel driveways, absolute level sites on gravel with grass around, water with enough pressure. 30/50 amp power at every site, sewer, cable TV, Wi-Fi, and wired internet very well working, all in a nice and modern pedestal. Nice setup among trees. Some sites are closer together and some are wider, some pull-throughs as well. Washrooms are the best you will ever find! Laundry has front loaders. The setup is along the highway, so depending where you are coming from, you might hear some trucks going by. New owners are very friendly and helpful and are trying to continue and maintain the property as it was. I will come back.

Typical updated B.C. Provincial Park a few km north of Revelstoke dam, no noise, no nothing with a very nice setting on the lake, asphalt driveways, level sites most on gravel, some on asphalt, longer and shorter sites, absolutely scenic, especially the sites along the lakeshore, there are sites further away from the lake with trees, so choose what you like. No problem for a 36' motorhome, all sites with fire pit. No hookups at all, so bring all the water you can and empty grey & black holding tanks. Both, pit toilets and WC with basin to wash your hands! No showers. Boat ramp and good fishing. Can be very busy on long weekends and sites can be reserved online. Firewood is available for a fee and dumping costs extra too. We will definitely stay there again. We camped at Martha Creek Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Gravel driveways, reasonably level sites all on grass with firepit, some are really narrow, some pull throughs, water with enough pressure, 30 amp power, no 50 amp available, sewer, basic cable TV, WiFi at first wasn't working but then got another one to connect to and it was fine. Nice setup among some trees, I didn't try the satellite but it should work on most sites. Hookups are somewhat dated but working. Washrooms need a MAJOR update. Showers are coin op but too small, not enough hooks, no shelve or bench, no door just curtains. Setup goes back to the sixties! Laundry has toploaders only. Staff is very friendly and very helpful. I would come back if again in the area.

Typical Provincial Park with a very nice setting on the lake, in the forest. Asphalt driveways, level sites on gravel, longer and shorter sites, no problem for a 36' motorhome, all sites with fire pit. No hookups at all, so bring all the water you can and empty grey & black holding tanks. Both, pit toilets and WC with basin to wash your hands! No showers. Hiking trails through the forest, store close by but not much of a choice there. Can be very busy on long weekends and sites can be reserved online. Firewood is available for a fee and dumping costs extra too. If you arrive or depart on a rainy day, your RV will be very, very dirty as the last kilometers before the Park coming from Lumby are on gravel. We will definitely stay there again.

Ashphalt driveways, reasonably levels sites on gravel, water with enough pressure, 30 amp power, no 50 amp available, sewer, no cable TV, WiFi working if close to office. Nice setup among trees, therefore most sites have no satellite possibility. Hookups are somewhat dated. Washrooms need a MAJOR update. Showers are not coin op but too small and setup goes back to the sixties! Laundry has toploaders only. Pool was not yet open, Staff is very friendly and helpful. I would come back but not use their washrooms.

Friendly owners, helpful. Park roads are paved and wide enough for big rigs. RV sites are on gravel, different lengths available, pretty level, shrubs between sites. Power hookup and cable TV at the front left, water & sewer at rear left, kind of unusual. Check the length of your power cord before you unhitch. WiFi worked well. The whole park is only a few years old and therefore everything is still nice, clean and in good shape. Restrooms were very clean, with tiled floors and tiled walls to about 4' high. Showers are kind of open, just behind curtains but are big enough to dress without banging your head. There is a pool and a hot tub, I didn't use either one. The laundry has 3 stacked units: front load washers at the bottom and dryer on top, clean and nice. There is some noise from the highway, but the further back you are the less noise you hear. We liked it and will definitely return.

For us it was another return visit. Friendly owners, helpful. Park road is paved, not very wide and longer rigs have to watch out. Sites are left-right interchanged and on dirt, some have gravel and all have plenty of pine needles. Sites are very long but narrow, and there are trees too. Slideouts are OK, awnings can work on certain sites. Satellite dish will work on sites 1 - 4, the others are too much in the trees. Hookups are dated but working. Wi-Fi works as long as you are close to the office. Restrooms are clean, tiled floor, standard separations. It is convenient for us visiting our friends and we will return again.

We were traveling and only stayed 1 night, even though I wished I could stay longer. It is a very nice park, typical state or county park layout with backup in and pull through sites, all paved and long and wide enough for your slideouts and awnings. Full hookup and working, even with cable TV and WiFi! WiFi wasn't the fastest in my case, but it worked. The restrooms unfortunately weren't clean at all, and in the men's the paper was totally out and all doors were missing. So, I don't know if that is the job of the host or what happened, but it could have been an easy 10 without that. A sign said new showers and laundry should be open by June 2014. There seemed to be a host on site, but never saw anybody. Self registration. I will certainly return next time here.

This "park" is a paved parking lot with hookups, but no WiFi or TV. The actual sites are on concrete, long enough for 5er and truck, pull through, wide enough for slide outs but not for awnings. You don't extend the awnings anyway. Registration is at the casino hotel, friendly, helpful but definitely not RVers. You receive a key to open the power pedestal at your site. Additionally, first time here, I received a bonus card with $15.00 on it to play in the casino. Therefore, this park is a real good deal! Had dinner in the restaurant and was very pleased with it. There are no restrooms at this park. It is about as nice as a paved parking lot can be but you are not coming to this park for the scenery anyway. It is well lit the whole night and there are rail tracks up front right across the road. The trains blow their whistle until about 8 p.m., I didn't hear them later. I will return if again in the area.

We stayed 1 night while driving north. Friendly and helpful staff. Road is paved, site was on grass/dirt and somewhat level, long enough for 5er & truck and wide enough for slideout and awning. Hookups are very basic and working. WiFi was available, not fast and cutting out. Restrooms are there but I would not use them, look old, are old and could be way cleaner. Constant noise from I-5, not really bad but always present. It looks like there are a few longtimers in this park and it definitely could use some updates. We stayed as it was time to stop and because we couldn't find an earlier RV Park. I will not return.

We stayed a week in this park. Staff was friendly and helpful at check-in. Roads are wide and on gravel. Sites are level, all on gravel, long and wide enough for all kind of RV's. RV site, patio, vehicle parking side-by-side. Hookups are standard and working. Internet is available by 3rd company, didn't try it, used my own solution. Cable TV is available at certain sites, didn't try it, used my satellite. Almost no trees, all open spaces, bushes around RV Park. Nice and clean restrooms. 32nd Road at front of property, canal at the back and little bit further back the rail tracks. Airport is not far and every once in a while you have a plane or a helicopter flying by. Noise hasn't been a big issue but there is almost all the time some noise present. Like everywhere else you get reasonable weekly deals with Good Sam and Passport America. We would return if again in the area and can recommend this park if you can live without green grass and a little bit of noise.

It was our first experience in one of these 55+ parks mostly catering to seasonal guests in park models. So far, we liked it. Staff & management was very friendly and helpful. Park roads are all paved and well maintained. Sites are 45' x 35', backup in, on gravel with a concrete pad in the middle for your table and chairs, truck/vhc on the left, RV to the right. All hookups you need and working. Wi-Fi sometimes got a bit slow in the evening and morning. Clean restrooms. Plenty of things to do like tennis, lawn bowling, horse shoes,whirlpool, pool, woodworking shop, sewing room, library, and plenty more. Pricey on a daily basis. Weekly rates with Good Sam or Passport America are reasonable for what they offer. We liked it, can recommend it and will return.

This State Park is a typical State Park, but really it is a Gem! Nice layout, paved and concrete roads and sites. Ranger was friendly and helpful. Sites are long, pretty level left-right but sloping towards the back, not a problem. Enough space for slide out and awning. Table, grill & fireplace at site. Hookups are standard and working. Verizon had a good signal, Virgin mobile didn't. Restrooms are shower, toilet & basin in 1 room, tiled and clean. Some sites are more in the trees and might be more difficult for satellite signal. We were staying at 2 different sites and had a sat signal at both. Beautiful trail along the lake with benches and docks for boats. We really liked it, can recommend it and would return if again in the area.

We arrived at early afternoon, self registration. Roads and sites are paved and narrow, sites are short, some very short and some longer ones. Most of them are in an odd angle so you have to drive in instead of backing into them. It doesn't really matter as there are no hookups at all. We found a back in site long enough for our 5er and truck with enough space for slide out and awning. Restrooms are toilets only and could have been cleaner. At this time, there was only 1 other RV staying here. It is very nice but could be even way nicer with a little bit of maintenance. It is a perfect place to start your tour of Canyon de Chelly. We would return if again in the area as it is the only campground here and we think it is not worth wile pulling the RV to the other campground which is quite a way into the park.

We arrived on a fairly nice day and liked the setup. Then it started snowing for several days. Staff was friendly & helpful. Rate is after Good Sam discount. Sites are long enough for 5er + truck, level, wide enough for slideout and awning, on gravel and dirt - and that became a little bit of a problem when the snow melted, it was wet, soft and that red sand really sticks to your shoes. Hookups are basic and working, WiFi worked, the signal strength ranged from good to very poor and the bandwith fluctuated from acceptable to nothing at all. If you need the Internet, bring your own solution. Verizon had a signal, Virgin mobile didn't. I got a 94% Satellite signal strength with Shaw direct. Restrooms are average and could have been cleaner when we were there, they weren't maintained every day. We stayed 5 nights and would return again if in the area. The view, the hiking possibilities and the proximity to Monument Valley are real assets here.
