swiws Provincial Park (Haynes Point), Osoyoos, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

All the campsites were already full when we arrived, so our stay was in the overflow section. This is a space between the park road and the beach on the south side of the park. It can handle up to 15-20 rigs, but mainly for smaller ones less than 30 ft. I wouldn't recommend it for anything longer. There are no facilities at all in the overflow. We managed to get our chairs out, but had to keep the slideout in. No Wi-Fi and picked up 19 stations on OTA TV. It was a lovely view from where we parked. No privacy at all being next to the road. There is a trail down to a wetland near the entrance to the park. RVs are only allowed one night in the overflow and no tents allowed. Just as well, since personally we wouldn't bother to spend more time there. At this time of year, no reservations; only first come first served which makes it harder to get a site as we found. Still, we have stayed here a few times over the years and would come back again. We camped at swiws Provincial Park (Haynes Point) in a Motorhome.

NK’MIP RV Park, Osoyoos, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

For a change we went here without a reservation. Hard to believe that C section which has full hookups and cable TV was already full up with snowbirds. It seems they keep coming earlier and earlier each succeeding year. So we went with plan B which is the F section. The road to it had vehicles parked out in the way, so had to watch where we were going. This is a small area one row up from the waterfront sites. It worked out fine for us and our son who had a site next to us. Most of F section are short sites with the longest no more than 40 ft. However, the waterfront sites down below us were even shorter. Some could barely fit a truck camper or a tent. I wouldn't rate these sites better than a 6. Our site was a back-in, fairly level, and gravel. Between the sites in our section there was a bit of grass, but pretty thin with more sand and dirt than grass. Hookups were well placed for us. Water in the rear, sewer in the middle, and power in front. However, adjacent sites didn't have the hookups in the same locations as ours. Go figure. The utilities all worked fine. It was 30 amp power, but didn't need to use the A/C. No breaker on the power box that was accessible. The free Wi-Fi worked well enough at times for browsing and email. Sometimes even for video. No OTA TV, but satellite worked fine. The campground has a store, but it was already closed for the season. There was a restaurant near the dock, but we didn't try it. Lots of trails to walk on. We camp here quite frequently and first time we saw some of the Indian Reserve horses have the run of the place. Of course we had to watch our step after that. It was a weekend and more noise of course, but not that big a deal. We will continue to stay here when in the area. We camped at NK’MIP RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kimberley Riverside Campground, Kimberley, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a popular campground. When I made reservations months ago, I was lucky to get a site in the section I wanted. When we parked at the stop sign to check-in, two trucks with their trailers came awfully close to us when they diverted to the gravel parking area to our right. It would be better if all traffic for check-in parked in the gravel area - that's something for the park operators to consider. With the reservation, check-in was a breeze. Staff was courteous and helpful. The campground sites are accessed by a road that has plenty of speed bumps along the way. The road is also fairly steep and definitely a challenge for large rigs. Our site (#114) turned out to be better than expected. Park roads are paved (with the exception of one street) and all sites are gravel. Ours was a pull-through, long and level and included a table and fire pit. There were trees on both sides of the pad for privacy and even a bit of shade at times. One fairly weak signal on OTA TV and never bothered with satellite due to the trees. Washrooms, showers, phone, garbage and recycle were nearby, but laundry was back up the hill near the office. Wi-Fi was a hotspot near the washrooms at the end of our street. It was hit and miss. When there was less traffic, it was good enough to post pictures on Facebook and other times when there was more traffic, I would get bumped off or the speed was so slow it wasn't worth bothering with it anymore. There are several trails that lead down to the river or into the forest back up to the campground entrance. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Kimberley Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

Townsite Campground (Parks Canada), Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Check-in at the registration kiosk was quick and efficient since we had a reservation. At this time of year, the campground is usually full, so make reservations for at least July and August. Campground roads are sealcoat gravel and I noticed a few potholes, but nothing major. This campground has a variety of sites from no services to full hookups. Our site (A25) had full hookups. It was a fairly level, gravel pull-through that included a picnic table on a concrete pad. Electric and water connections were in the middle while the sewer dump was in the middle of the parking pad which made it a challenge to connect. All hookups worked fine, but the sewer needed extra hose and a bit of fiddling to drain properly. For those sites without sewer, there is a dump station on Waterton Avenue close to the mouth of Cameron Creek. The surrounding grass landscape was full of gopher holes made by the hundreds of the resident ground squirrels. We had some great views of the surrounding mountains. Picked up 2 channels on OTA TV, but chose to watch satellite since our site was wide open. There was a notice that the park Wi-Fi was down and nearest open access was a block away near the village playground. There are a series of trails through the campground that go to Cameron Falls, Upper Waterton Lake, and connections to other trails further into the mountains. There is an Interpretive Theatre on the falls trail. The village is walking distance away. We would definitely stay here again for any future visits to the area. We camped at Townsite Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The drives up to Red Rock Canyon and Cameron Lake are worthwhile, but only for smaller rigs. Anything over 30 ft may have some issues with the narrow or windy roads. Cameron Lake has canoe and other boat rentals.

The Prince of Wales Hotel has a lobby lounge view of Upper Waterton Lake that is spectacular. In their restaurant you are served by kilt wearing waiters.

Centennial Park Campground, Claresholm, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground located in a city park. The majority of sites are out in the open, but many of the full hookup ones are shaded by trees. At check-in, staff gave us a better site than the one previously reserved. Our site was a level, gravel back-in and included a table. Sewer and water connections were in the rear while the power was up front. I needed an extra hose for the sewer. All hookups worked fine. No OTA TV, satellite would be possible from the open sites. Wi-Fi was open access, no password. It was good enough for e-mail and browsing. Staff admitted it can be slow when the campground is full. Campground was quiet, but may not always be that way since the park does have a couple of baseball diamonds, playground, and a spray park. We would stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Centennial Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground - Full Hookups (Parks Canada), Banff National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Check-in can take time here as the line-ups can be long. The staff is very efficient and friendly. One of the registration staff turned out to be very handy as I had an electrical problem with the 30 amp plug-in at our site. As soon as I reported the problem she was at our site very quickly and fixed it. All the sites in this campground are pull-throughs that parallel the park roads. The access roads are all paved and the sites are gravel. Our site (#418) had the utilities in the middle with the sewer about 4 ft from the water. A picnic table with a metal extension for a BBQ or camp stove was included. The table was fairly worn and could have used another coat of paint or stain and a few boards as well. I noticed not all the tables were the same at the other sites. This campground has no fire pits. Sites on the north side of the roads get the most sun and heat. On the south side many are in the shade in the afternoon. Ours was on the north side and next time I would consider getting a site on the south side. Washrooms, showers, garbage and recycle were close by on our street, but not every street had these facilities. Picked up 2 weak channels on OTA TV; satellite TV would not be possible in most sites due to the trees. No Wi-Fi, but free Wi-Fi access at the Banff tourist info centre. The local bus transit even has a stop here, across from the dump station. The Wolf's Den Theatre has evening shows Wednesday through Sunday end of June to beginning of September that are fit for adults and kids. There is a perimeter trail that circles both campgrounds (Village II and Trailer Court) and another that heads towards downtown Banff. We would stay here again, as it is the only full hookup campground in the national park. We camped at Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground - Full Hookups (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada), Jasper National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Check-in at the registration booth was fast as we had a reservation. Good thing we had one since the status board said the campground was full. There was the standard lecture about bears and not to leave any food or water outside. There are 10 full hookup campsite loops, each with 10 sites. Seven of the loops have no fire pits and three have them. The rest of the campground has everything from no services to water and electric. There are some shelters called Otentiks that are for rent as well. Our site (51E) was in the first loop past the dump stations. It was a fairly level, gravel pull-through with full hookups and a table. The utility hookups are located in the middle which worked out fine for us. We were in a no fire pit loop. Due to the high fire hazard risk, there was a campfire ban, so no one anywhere else could have a fire which suited my DW just fine. No OTA TV or Wi-Fi and the trees would prevent any satellite reception. This might change in the future, as the pine beetle has killed many trees in the park and expect to see more open areas when the dead trees are removed. Garbage and recycle bins were nearby on the access road to our loop as well as near the dump stations. Playground, washrooms, kitchen shelter, and food lockers were nearby as well. If ever in the area, we would stay here again. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

William Switzer Prov Park - Gregg Lake Campground, Wild Hay, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This provincial park has around 6 separate campgrounds. Our site was in Lakeside section. All sites at Lakeside are basic with no utilities. Check-in was near the entrance at the office. Since we had a reservation, it was quick. Our site (L38) was a fairly level gravel back-in that included a table and fire pit. Other than a few pieces of garbage in the fire pit, the site was clean. Drinking water and dump station near the entrance across from the office. The dump station costs $5 extra. Showers are located centrally between Elk Ridge and Fox Den campgrounds. One concern we had was our site being the last one in the loop was too close to the exit gate and made it a challenge to get through it. Our rig is only 28 ft long, so longer rigs shouldn't consider staying in site L38. No OTA TV and satellite not possible due to trees at most sites. Playground, boat launch and dock nearby. There is a trail that connects with some of the other campground sections. Thank goodness our site was the furthest away from the playground and boat launch, as it got noisy even after quiet time had started. We probably would not stay here again. We camped at William Switzer Prov Park - Gregg Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Pierre Grey's Lake Provincial Park, Grande Cache, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

There are four campgrounds here. We stayed at the Joachim Campground. Check-in was done at a booth near the entrance. Since we had a reservation, it was quick. All sites at Joachim are basic with no utilities. Power sites can be had at the other three campgrounds. Water is available from a water pump. Alberta Parks has stated it is not potable and you are expected to bring your own drinking water. The nearest dump station is in Grande Cache or at Gregg Lake. Our site (J7) was a fairly level, gravel back-in and included a table and fire pit. It was spacious and fairly private and had access to the trail along Moberly Lake. No OTA TV, and satellite not an option due to the trees. Considering the remoteness of this park, I was surprised to find that cell phone service was available. Hiking, boating and fishing seem to be the main activities here. Boat launches are at Moberly and Desjarlais Lakes. Electric motors only. Trails are around all three major lakes, including one to the ruins of Pierre Grey's trading post. Another trail has a bridge connecting the Desjarlais Lake shoreline to an island. On this island is a huge Osprey nest. There is a playground at Joachim campground. Pit toilets only and no showers. There are bear proof garbage containers at all the campgrounds. Mosquitoes are pretty fierce at this park. Other than a few kids or dogs making some noise at night, this place is fairly quiet. I wouldn't mind staying here again, but my DW says she would give it a pass due to the mosquitoes. We camped at Pierre Grey's Lake Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Rotary Campground, Grande Prairie, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Our site (#6) was a paved and not level back-in. Pad dropped off a lot at the back and had to go to the top of my trilevelers. Most of the full hookup sites are not long enough for rigs larger than 30 ft. When trucks are parked out in front, there is hardly any room to exit some sites. Larger rigs should use the 50 amp pull-throughs on the north side of the park. The Wi-Fi was not working when we arrived, but after two days the park got it working again. It worked well enough for Skype calls at times, but at night was definitely slower. I didn't try OTA TV, as last time here I only got 1 channel. Satellite TV worked well enough from our site and should be okay for most of the other sites, except a few obstructed by trees. The laundromat was clean, but only had 3 washers and 3 dryers. The traffic noise on the highway next to the park was horrendous at times. The E&W sites down near the reservoir are much quieter. For that reason, I would prefer staying at one of these sites next time in the area. We camped at Rotary Campground in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $25.00

Park attendant wasn't around, so picked out a site. She came by later and registered us. Rate shown on the website is not current. Paid $32 CAD. Most of the sites are pull-through. There is a large no services group area. Our site was a fairly narrow and level gravel pull-through. There is not much room between the tables on each site, just enough room for the slideouts and awning. Utilities were placed in the middle, which worked out well for us. The sewer outlet was at the base of the water and electric, so be careful. All hookups worked fine. If you need a dump station, it's further down the road across from the cemetery. No Wi-Fi, but sites are open enough for satellite TV. Since it is the only campground in town with full hookups, we would stay here again. We camped at Monkman RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lions Flatbed Creek Campground, Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

On arrival, I wanted to fill up our freshwater tank, but noticed signs everywhere advising the water was not potable. Found out we had to make a trip back into town in order to get some proper drinking water. The campground has two loops - upper and lower. We had a site in the lower loop near the playground. The Lions Club operates the campground for the town. There was a sign that said the host was in stall 27, but was out at the time. So we went ahead and found our site, which was given when I made a reservation earlier (host came around later for registration and payment). It was a level back-in with a good gravel crush and nicely landscaped with a few trees for shade. A picnic table and fire ring on site as well. Site size varies. Some were big enough for tow vehicle and trailer and others for a tent. The lower loop sites seemed to be in better shape than the upper loop sites. The comfort station was located in the lower section and had men, women, and unisex sections. The Men's had one shower which took loonies. Playground, picnic shelter with BBQ, volley ball and sports field are also located in the lower section. A trail goes through the campground which leads east to various spots on Flatbed Creek or north towards the golf course. Now that I know about the water situation, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Lions Flatbed Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Azouzetta Lake Lodge & Campground, Mackenzie, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

This place has been around for awhile, but it had been closed for several years until recently when the local ski hill bought it. The old lodge has been leveled and a new office and cafe have been built. The cafe was waiting for local health approval before being opened, although you could get a coffee. The staff were friendly and tried to help out as much as possible. After registration, they opened a gate to let us in. The campground part is down near the lake with several sections. The setting with the lake and mountains is nothing short of spectacular. Due to some flooding last year, many of the sites have had a mix of gravel and sand laid over the original gravel and grass. It doesn't help much with the landscape, but at least the sites are more protected from flooding. Our site was nothing more than a gravel pit with a bit of bush. There was too much sand on our site, which made things messy in the motorhome. There are still some sites with the old gravel and grass. Site C8 near the dock is probably the best site. Many of the gravel/sand overlay sites have no fire rings or tables. No utilities at any of the sites. There are pit toilets and showers are available for $3.00. The dump station and water are near the cabins and not in a very convenient location. No clean up hose at the dump station. No TV, Wi-Fi, or cell phone service. A few sites are open enough for satellite. There is a brand new dock with a couple of picnic tables. There is a small beach as well. Up at the office, there are snacks and pop available. When leaving the park, one must open the gate again. It's locked at night, but opened up early in the morning. Hopefully this campground continues to do improvements, especially with the site landscaping. I think I will wait until then, if ever through the area again. We camped at Azouzetta Lake Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Paarens Beach Provincial Park, Fort St James, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

The campsites are in two sections. The main section is near the entrance. The smaller one is near the beach past the day use parking lot. We had a site near the beach. It was a nearly level, gravel back-in. With forest on both sides there was plenty of privacy. Backing in might be a bit of a challenge for any rig longer than 35 ft. There are a few water taps over in the day use and main campground section. No dump station in the park, so the nearest one is at Cottonwood Park in Fort St James. No cable TV or Wi-Fi, but received 8 channels on OTA TV. Too many trees around the beach sites for satellite. Access to the beach was across the park road from our site (#34). Around 800 metres (1/2 mile) of sandy beach. The beach sunsets are spectacular. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Paarens Beach Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:      

Registration was done at the golf shop and was quick since I had reserved. Our site was a grass back-in that had a low spot that made leveling tricky. If I backed up more to stay level then my hookups were too far away. They were more to the middle and front of the site. All utilities worked fine. There was just enough room to extend the slideout and awning. No table, but I probably could have asked for one since there were a few at nearby empty sites. There was no cable TV, but received 6 channels from OTA TV. Site was open enough for satellite. Wi-Fi was open and worked well enough for e-mail and browsing. The garbage dumpsters were a good walk away from most of the campsires. Next time in the area, I will try another park that has more site space.
