Rate shown includes charge for an extra person. Friendly staff in office who was very thorough and offered some useful information about Haines attractions and services. Good gravel roads and grass sites. Our site was a 30 amp back-in and fairly level. No privacy to speak of due to open sites. All utilities worked fine. Wi-Fi signal was strong, but due to bandwidth limiting only good enough for e-mail and browsing. We didn't use the cable TV so no comment there. Courtesy phone for local calls. There is a recycle program in use. We would stay here again if in the area.

The park is essentially a gravel lot with a great view. Friendly owner who escorts you to the site. We chose to drive into the site to get a view of Atlin Lake through our windshield. Site was level enough, but fairly close to our neighbour. The exception is one site near the marina that even has its own shaded table. Our site had 30 amp electric, but there are a few with 15 amp only. Both electric and water worked fine. No washrooms or dump station. The local dump station is out on the Discovery Road on the south side about 3km east of Atlin. Wi-Fi is fairly weak and intermittent. Sites are open so satellite reception is excellent. There is a seaplane base and marina next to the park so expect to see plane and boat activity nearby. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Campground is associated with a lodge and restaurant. About 10 pull-through sites with full hookups. These sites are fairly close and about 40 ft. long. A couple of sites out front in the open may take bigger rigs. Other sites in the bush are E&W or dry. Wi-Fi worked well enough for e-mail and browsing. Most of the pull-through sites open enough for satellite TV. Not that much choice along this stretch of the Alaska highway if you want a full hookup so would probably stay here again if ever in the area.

Operator said no washrooms or laundry, but all I wanted was a full hookup. Our site (#3) was a very long gravel pull-through that could have accommodated any size rig or combination. The utilities all worked fine. Some of the other pull-through sites in our section looked a bit worn. No Wi-Fi or TV. Not sure if satellite TV would work due to the trees located between the sites. This is an old campground that has seen better days, but if all you want is a full hookup it would be okay for an overnight stay.

Site was a fairly level gravel pull-through. All utilities worked, but the 15 amp electric showed low ac on the fridge so I had to switch to propane. Wi-Fi cost $10 for the first 30 min. so I didn't bother to use it. Sites are open so satellite TV possible. There are warnings about bears in the vicinity. One reason the garbage containers are bear proof. We had a couple of bears nearby including one looking in our motorhome window. So walking on any trails use caution. We would stay here again if ever in the area.

Registration is at the clubhouse. Our site was a grass back-in that took a bit of maneuvering to get level without the use of boards. I found it a bit strange that the pull-throughs were roomier, but only had electric and water. No cable TV, but found 3 different channels off the air. Wi-Fi worked fairly well, but was stretched at times to allow Skype calls. Fairly reasonable rates for the par 3 golf as RVers got a discount on the regular rate. Park is close to town so we would stay here again.

Rate includes dump station fee. We picked a site that was more open due to plenty of mosquitoes in the forested sites. Our site was not very level and needed a few boards for leveling. Nicely landscaped and plenty of room. Only negative was some noise from the highway when outside. The dump station self pay wasn't working so I had to pay the friendly camp host. There are a couple of trails that start from the campground. One leads to a day use area on the lake. It had some picnic tables and a small beach for swimming. We usually camp in full hookup sites, but occasionally "rough" it in one of the BC provincial parks. This one served its purpose and we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Self registration when we arrived. Saw only one park employee later in the evening. Campground part of a bigger city park that has a senior's activity centre. Park roads and sites good gravel. Only a couple sites have any shade. Privacy fences between most sites. Our site (#7) was a back-in and had a bit of shade. It had a picnic table in good condition. There are some pull-through sites available. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV and didn't find any off the air TV either. Wi-Fi connection was strong and good enough for Skype calls. Easy walk to the river. We would stay here again if in the area.

I have to question if the previous reviewer actually went to this park. I wouldn't want to maneuver a big rig in this place. The park road is on a slope with a few turns. The road and sites are a mixture of gravel, sand, and dirt. There were only 3 transient sites available as the rest were occupied by seasonals or permanents. Our site (#6) was a pull-through and long enough for most rigs under 40 ft without a toad. It had a picnic table in good condition and a fire ring made out of a wheel rim. The adjacent pull-through was about the same length and the one back-in site was for short units around 20 ft. Utilities worked fine except for a leaky water tap. No cable TV and with trees all around no satellite either. Wi-Fi access point was in the office and there is a picnic table nearby where one can connect there although it was slow. Good value with the Passport discount. Staff were friendly and helpful. We might decide to check out a newer park in Crawford Bay next time we pass through the area.

The office is located past the two campgrounds so one has to backtrack to their assigned site. Ours was in the Upper Landing where I had to turn around in order to back into our site. Park roads and sites are gravel. Our site (#4) was big enough for a big rig and toad parked beside it. It was the biggest site in the Upper Landing. It had a picnic table in good condition and a fire ring made out of rocks. All utilities worked fine. Cable TV had about 40 channels and was clear. I wasn't able to connect to their Wi-Fi sites (Upper and Lower Landing) since they weren't on at the time. There are walking trails to their own private beach or to the town beach and downtown. We would stay there again if ever in the area.

The staff at this park were great. First they checked to see if we could occupy a site that would normally have to be reserved and as we were only there for one night they gave the go ahead. Site 37 had a great view of the bay and Kalamalka Lake. It is a back-in with ample space for a big rig and toad. When staff came around to register us she asked if we were 65 or older. Well it hadn't dawned on me until she asked that yes we now qualify. That saved us half the nightly rate. Our site had been raked clean and the fire ring was also clean. A good solid cedar picnic table on a concrete slab. No utilities at our site and no dump station either. There are a few electric sites in a parking lot. Water is available to fill up the freshwater tank just past the campground host site near the entrance. Landscape getting more mature by the year and most sites still don't have shade, but a few look like they do. This park has a boat ramp and it sure got busy during our stay. We will continue to stay at this park whenever in the area.

Office staff was friendly and efficient and check-in was a breeze. Park roads are paved. Campsites are gravel or grass. Our campsite in C3 (in the older loop) was gravel that could have used a bit more. The older loop in section C has mature shrubs between the sites for privacy. The newer loop in section C is more open and more gravel on the pads. Other sections include waterfront sites and even some yurts. Our campsite had a concrete patio and table. Irrigation wasn't working at our site and adjacent ones causing the grass to burn off leaving sand which made a mess in our motorhome. Also had tree sap cover the motorhome which is always a "fun" job to clean off. We had some exuberant neighbours who on one night made things noisy until near midnight. Access covers to the utilities were knocked off or hanging on an angle that made it more difficult to connect the electric and cable, but all utilities worked fine. The cable TV had around 40-50 analog channels along with some digital audio and both were good. I didn't bother with the Wi-Fi so no comment on it. There was a laundry in our section that had 3 washers and 4 dryers. $2 for wash and $1 for dry (30 min.) There was a big screen TV on the wall of the laundry. There are walking paths up to the winery and along the ridge above the campground. We have been here many times in the past and will continue to return whenever in the area.

Campground located near the Stampede grounds. Could use better signage on the park roads to the campground. Self registration in effect. Rates for full hookup sites reduced this year. 12 of the 68 sites are paved pull-throughs with shared hookups. The rest are back-ins along with 5 tent sites. Our site was very level. Due to shared hookups no privacy with adjacent site. Two picnic tables to share with the adjacent site on the other side. Water hookup was stripped so had to use the other site's tap. Very few campers in the park so that wasn't a problem. Otherwise electric and sewer were fine. Plenty of shade from mature trees. Wi-Fi was fairly strong at first and was even able to use Skype, but got bogged down later due to traffic. No cable TV, but there were 5 networks from the antenna. Sports events and gatherings on the Stamped grounds made for plenty of visits to the campground bathrooms. Still it was fairly quiet and we would have no hesitation in returning to this park.

Self registration at this time of year. Rate shown for pull-through site (#43) on the exterior side of the campground loop. It will be an extra $5 during peak season. Most of the sites in this loop have plenty of room, but sites 43 and 45 also have a nice view of the Columbia river. Park roads and campsites were asphalt. Our site was fairly level. Hookups worked fine, although the sewer connection is an elbow above ground that can be awkward to connect. No Wi-Fi or cable TV, but there were a couple of PBS stations over the air. There are a few walking paths from the campground to the day use area and the docks. There is a playground nearby. Only "fly in the ointment" (besides the price increase) were the lack of garbage facilities at the campground. The only place to deposit garbage was in two overloaded dumpsters on the way out of the park. This park is like an oasis in the semi desert landscape. We would definitely return again.

Our site was a nicely gravelled and level back-in. As it was an end site it had privacy on one side. A table and fire ring were included. This park lives up to its name as many sites are surrounded by tall evergreens. All the hookups including the cable TV worked fine. Cable TV was basic with about 25-30 channels. Wi-Fi provided by Tengo and it cost $3 a day or cheaper rate for longer term. It worked well enough, but I didn't use it much as family visits took up most of our time. This is the best park in Nanaimo and we will continue to stay here whenever in the area.
