This is a beautiful setting along Lake Revelstoke. The sites are spacious, mostly back-in, but a few new sites are pull through. Quiet park with a sandy beach & playground. This is a high demand park and we arrived on a Sunday without reservations and were able to find spots for 2 nights as long as we were willing to move sites. The sites were level, so this was not a big deal and we were happy to do so in order to stay on for another night. Would definitely come back here!

This is a typical BC Provincial Park - large, well, spaced sites, very private and lots of trees/shade. There is a nice day use area with a sandy beach for swimming and boat launch. The showers are older and were free in 2015, so hot water was an issue. The ranger informed us that they are updating the showers for next season and there will be a charge, but this means the hot water should last longer. Quiet and away from the road.

: Rather disappointed with this Elks RV facility. They have a huge parking lot just on the outskirts of downtown, so it is in a traffic area right across the street from Safeway. Instead of putting the RVers in the quieter portion of the parking lot, the 5 RV spaces are right at the intersection with lots of traffic noise. There are also people cutting through the lot to get to Safeway, so there is not much privacy. Finally, there is absolutely no shade, so in the hot afternoon sun, we were baking. The lot is blacktop and needs repair. There is only electricity at the site. OK for overnight stopover.

This is one of the worst private parks we have ever stayed at. I wish I had read these reviews before we stayed here as they were right on. The sites are squeezed together on a lot up the hill from the main resort. I can't imagine how a big rig would get in here without great difficulty as we had problems getting around in our 30ft class C. It is an older park that has old hook ups, the showers are NOT private - they are open locker-room style with people and their kids walking through to get to the pools in the main lodge down the hill, the laundry is also far away upstairs in the main lodge. The pools are nice, but by the weekend, they were so crowded with families you could hardly move. They allow babies in diapers in the pools which I find unhygenic. The RV price at $70 a night was bad enough for what you got, but then to add insult to injury the resort charges RV'ers and additional fee to "rent" pool towels while regular guests are not charged. Not sure what that says about what management thinks about RV'ers.

This park has, by far, the nicest & cleanest facilities I have ever seen - bathrooms & showers, laundry, etc. Also, we loved being able to have a choice between a nice concrete pad with full hook-ups OR a lovely grassy area with W&E with the ability to use the dump if needed. The park has a 2 bay car/RV wash which came in handy for the tow after a dusty ride. Finally, the owner was great - so nice and friendly - really shows pride of ownership. We will DEFINITELY stay here again on our way to or from Canada.

This is a tough one to review objectively because of the weather situation when we were there. The entire PacNW was in the 90s-100s under a heat alert and it was imperative to find shade & AC. We saw this private park advertised in the tourist literature showing shade trees & advertising shady spots. Unfortunately, when we got there we discovered the only shade was in the tent camping area and all of the RV spots were exposed in the blazing sun, not a shade tree around. We couldn't even leave our awning out while we went into town to cool off because of the potential for high winds. So we were pretty disappointed in the physical difference between what we expected & what we got re shade & trees. That being said, the office staff were extremely friendly & helpful and the laundry & shower areas were spotless. In more milder weather, it would be a fine overnight spot. Sites were level and pull-through. No road noise & quiet at night.

This is everything you could wish for in a state campground: big, spacious sites with lots of privacy, esp. on the perimeter, lots of trees for shade, clean restrooms with lots of hot water. It doesn't get much better than this. We intended to stay one night and stayed for four - wish we had stayed longer & we will definitely return.

This private campground is very well maintained and well run. Everything is spotless and the staff is friendly & helpful. Sites are close together, about typical for a private park, but there is no problem with awnings or slide outs. Sites are level pull-throughs and back ins and you can keep the toad hooked up or park in a little side parking space. Perfect for an overnighter or longer if you are interested in using the facilities (which the kids seemed to love).

This is a great spot to camp right on the Walker River. Sites are well spaced with bushes & trees for privacy. Small CG with 2 loops, no problem to back in with our 30 foot RV & room for tow after unhooking at entrance. Nice and quiet except for road noise from Hwy. 395 which didn't bother us in a space away from the highway, but the sites that back up to the highway will notice it more. Not much to do but fish, read, enjoy the scenery, etc. Very friendly campground hosts. We will return in the future as we enjoyed the peace & quiet.

Nice little park: quiet, clean showers/bathrooms, spotless pool and laundry area. Nice spacing between sites and convenient to freeway but a couple of miles down the road, so there was no freeway noise. Fruit trees at most sites. The only thing they need to do is repave the interior roads as the asphalt is cracked up.

Beautiful setting in a quiet area. Sites were not really level and can be tight for larger rigs. Bring all the leveling blocks you own. Otherwise, we were lucky to grab a deep back-in site for our 30' foot Class C that we liked so much we stayed an extra night. Pit toilets and no showers, but what a deal for $6.00 a night. Dump station is near the visitor center.

Great little park in walking distance to downtown Dillon, shops & restaurants. The owners were wonderful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and provide information on local and nearby attractions. Nice shady spots with grassy area, quiet, with back-in and large pull-through spots. We would definitely recommend and stay here again.
