This is a hidden gem as far as RV Parks in BC go. Family run, built on an old Drive In Movie site. Still,has the old screen and the office is in the original projection/confectionary building. Good fishing spot a short walk away on the Koutenay River. Castlegar is a nice little city with lots to see and do in the area. Casino just up the road. Lots of great places to eat. Full hook up with 50A power which is rare. VERY Friendly.

This park is about 3 miles out of the town of Leavenworth along the Wenatchee River. A little on the tight side for big rigs but quite manageable. Have a lot of rules here and the staff is a little short but all in all, it is a nice quite park. There are two other parks in town but their facilities are not quite up to the same standard as this one. We would definetly stay here again.

This is a nice, spacious park. Well maintained and friendly staff. This is our 2nd stay here. There has been a number of improvements since our last stay. Most obvious is repaving of the sites. Last time they were in need of repair but all is new now. Only con is that the park is a few miles from the city but an excellent setting by the river. They sell Propane on site if needed.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here for one night. Had a pull through site #64 in the back to avoid trees interfering with the sat dish. A little tricky to get level but all in all, a nice little park for a decent price. Good wifi and a nice little snack bar/office/store. Friendly staff. Would definetly stay here again.

Stayed here one night. Our site was a little narrow but with a concrete patio slab and a Great Lake view, we would return for sure.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here 5 nights. We had site 39 at the top of the park. Perfect for satellite coverage. Sites are gravel. Ours was a little tricky to level the coach but lots of room and good facilities. Read some other reviews on this park about the check in staff. We did not encounter anything of the sort and in fact found them to be very cheerful and eager to help out. Lots of signs and rules but IMO, the park is well run. Large fire pit and BBQ's for groups by the Laundry Room. Did not use but looked like a good set up.

It appears this park is under new management recently. Staff were very friendly and helpful. This is an older park but appears the new owners are doing some upgrading to bring it up to date. Only con was the horrendous Speed Bumps. I can see the need to control speed in the park but these are over the top.

Stayed here 4 nights on our way to Bryce Canyon. This is our 2nd stop at the Pony Express and love it. Handy to downtown and everything Salt Lake City. Not the cheapest kid on the block but very good value for your money in service and layout. We had the supersize site in the front row. $4 a day more but worth it for the extra space.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here for 5 nights to take in Bryce and surrounding area. Found everyone here very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the newer section which was exceptionally spacious. Had to pack a lunch from motorhome door to the fire pit. Awesome. Open space to allow satellite access. We had site 219 but all sites in this section are large. Maybe a little more money than others in the area but worth every nickel. For a remote spot, you can find everything you need at Ruby's but suggest you stock up on groceries and beer before heading there. Would most definitely come back again.

We stayed here for one night. Found the staff very friendly and helpful. Nice little park. A little bit on the tight side, narrow sites and could be graded to level but generally an OK park. Great wifi which does not happen too often. Would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here 3 nights for the 1st time. This is a nice little park in a perfect setting. Not too many full hookup sites so if you need full service, book early. Owner is a great host and has done an awesome job of putting this campground together from scratch. Gold panning is part of the deal an fits right in with the area. Will come back to do more exploring of this interesting area of BC.

We stayed at this park for two nights at the end of our Alaska caravan. The park is under new management since August 1st and seemed a little confused. We had a full hookup site with 30 amp power. With all appliances such as fridge, water heater, etc. turned off, we were hard pressed to make coffee. AC was definitely out of the question. The temperature was 30+ deg C. This park is an old park not set up to handle larger RVs with higher electricity demands. The management told us "this is a remote northern park and the amenities are not the same as we are used to down south". Prince George is a bustling city of 80K population. Not really remote. Will try a different park next time through PG.

This park is located close to all shopping etc. in the city of Leduc. There are two halves to the park. The north part looks to be newer and has no trees while the south section appears older and is in the trees. Satellite service would be iffy in the trees. This is a gated and secured park, seems to be well run. Wi-Fi service is sketchy. There is no laundry facility. Sites are quite large and have fire pits at each site. In my opinion, it is somewhat overpriced for what is offered but is a decent park none the less. We were here 3 nights.

Date of Stay:

New owners in the last 3 years. Very friendly and accommodating. They are constantly making improvements to a park that was previously run down. We stayed here one night and would certainly consider stopping here again if we are in the area. Of note, Satellite reception is tricky here. Scout your site if you want to use your dish.

We have stayed here a few times in our 40' Motorhome. This park is very well run. Beautiful setting along the Crowsnest River. Some reviews claim they have too many rules but if you are looking for peace & quite, good amenities in a well laid out park, this is the place. The owners take a lot of pride in their park and it shows. Can be a little daunting for big rig operators getting in to the park but it is manageable. We always spend a few days here. Lots of history to take in in the area and World Class Trout Fishing.
