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.

Rate shown with Good Sam discount for a 30 amp back-in. Our site was a fairly level gravel back-in that included a table. The park roads have been improved to a seal coat finish that eliminates the dust and some of the dead trees have been cut down which makes some of the sites more open. Still many of the tables could have used a fresh coat of paint. All the hookups worked fine. The cable TV has about 25 video channels and 50 audio channels and were clear. The Wi-Fi was slow at times due to traffic. We will be back to stay on our next visit here.

Even though the park does not encourage workers to stay here, it is still one popular park. If you want a full hookup be prepared to make a reservation. Even this late in the season there were none available and we had to get a power and water site. Our site (#25) actually has a lovely view of the lake. It was a paved back-in that required leveling blocks. A table was included with the site. The electric pedestal has a built in extension cord so no worries about hooking up. However, an extra water hose may be required depending how far back the rig is on the site. The section we were in has playground equipment inside the road loop. No cable TV, but found 1 channel off the antenna. Wi-Fi has been recently upgraded and it has more controls on it for usage metering. I encountered a problem hooking up with my computer's internal antenna and used my Hawking dish to access the internet. Internet access was pretty fast and consistent at first, but got bogged down by users during the evening and inclement weather. This is still my favourite RV park in Grande Prairie and will continue to come back even if I don't get a full hookup.

Our site was a not very level gravel pull-through. It could have used some more gravel to get it level. Noticed a few sites had been improved with more gravel, so maybe more sites will get the same in the future. As the park manager told me, 99% of the sites are occupied by workers. There were only a couple of available sites when we arrived. We had an end site so it had more room than most. It was open so satellite TV reception was excellent. No cable TV and no channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi was very slow and I finally gave up in frustration trying to get anything on the internet. The laundry had 3 or 4 washers and the same number of dryers. It cost $2.50 for wash and $2 for dry. They were clean and efficient, especially the dryers. I would stay here again if in the area.

Our site was the only one available in the park as the other sites were occupied by oil crews or seasonals. It was a short site usable for RVs less than 28 ft. The site was a fairly level gravel back-in. Mature landscape and grass spaces between sites gave us some privacy. Most of the sites had a table. Ours did not. The park had a laundry, showers, and rest rooms in one building near the office. As the location is near the highway there was some noise. No cable TV or Wi-Fi and no channels off the antenna. Just a basic full hookup which I would stay at again for a night if ever in the area.

Rate shown is for full hookup and access to showers. Dry camping is available for $19. Our site was a fairly level grass back-in. No privacy between sites. Shared hookups for electric and water. Noticed that all the electric plug covers were missing. Our electric was on correct side, but water was on opposite side forcing me to use an extra hose extension to hookup. All hookups worked fine, although had to fiddle with the water tap to stop any leaks. Most sites had tables, but didn't see any fire rings. No cable TV, but found 1 channel off the antenna. Wi-Fi worked fine, although camp host warned me I might not pick it up due to weak signal. RV Park is located on the south side of the exhibition grounds and is within walking distance of a large shopping center which included a couple of restaurants (Ricky's and McDonalds). Due to location, I would stay here again.

Friendly owner let us pick out a site. Our site was a not very level grass back-in. No privacy between sites. The electric was only 15 amp and voltage was only 110V. The water and sewer hookups were below ground level. Boards covered these hookups and I had to be careful not to back over them. Table, fire ring, and garbage can at most sites. All hookups worked fine. No TV, but satellite is possible from some of the sites. Most of the campers were seasonals here for the fishing in the nearby lakes. Boat ramp and dock across the road. Wi-Fi is available down near the hot tub shelter. It was strong and steady. We would stay here again if in the area.

Our site (#24) was a gravel back-in which we chose to pull into instead due to the electric connection and the site not being level. The shared power pedestal had one 30 amp connection upside down. A table and fire grill included in the site. There was even a large load of wood left behind by an earlier camper. The owner told me he doesn't usually supply firewood. There is a dump station and fresh water available. TV was 1 channel off the antenna. Wi-Fi may be available now as that is what I am using to type this review. I would come here again if in the area.

Our site was a fairly level, gravel pull-through. There was enough space around site to give us some privacy. We were not able to use their dump station as it is reserved for the seasonals. This is mainly a fish camp just like the rest of the campgrounds and lodges on Cross Bay located on Cedar Lake (about 10km northwest of Grand Rapids). No TV except for satellite and that would be a challenge as there are a lot of trees around. Wi-Fi at the tackle shop front porch, but I didn't bother to use it as I only found out about it later. Since no dump station was available for us, not much chance we will be back.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Our site was a level grass/dirt pull-through that included a table. Good privacy from other sites, but not suitable for satellite reception due to trees. There are more open sites available. All hookups worked fine. No cable TV, but found 1 channel off the antenna. Wi-Fi was strong and internet access was fast. Laundry had 2 washers and 2 dryers. Each was $2.50 a load. Wife said they were clean and above average. We would stay here again if in the area.

Rate shown includes tax. Self registration on the honor system. This campground turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Most of the sites are gravel back-ins, but two are pull-throughs. All sites are good sized and most are big rig friendly. The only problem is that electric and water are shared for many of the sites. Our site was an end site and all hookups were on the correct side. It had a table and concrete base as well as a good size fire ring and grill. The hookups all worked fine and there was even cable TV . The cable TV had about 50 TV channels and another 30 digital music channels and they worked fine. Wi-Fi signal was strong and internet access was fairly fast. A couple of sites have great views of the lake and many perimeter sites have good privacy. There is a walking trail around the lake. This is one campground I would definitely come back and stay again.

Our site was a gravel mostly level back-in. Noticed some soft ground nearby where wheel ruts had developed. The electric and water worked fine. No cable TV, but found a couple of channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi worked well enough to write this review. Lots of trains running every hour. I probably wouldn't come back as they had no full hookups, the train noise and rate is expensive for what we got.

Day pass for Algonquin Park included in campground nightly rate. However, I was told I had to go directly to the campground from the east gate. I could purchase a day pass at the gate and hope to get reimbursed at the campground, but no guarantee I would get it. That meant I had to skip some of the sites in the park that required a permit. Campground office staff advised me that water was only available at the trailer sanitary station 2km north of the park. Be aware access road from highway to it is narrow. Nice size campsite (#303), but connecting to electric pedestal very difficult as it was over 50 feet away in the bushes. I ended up using the 15 amp plug as I didn't have enough 30 amp line. I found a water tap nearby to the electric. It appeared to be for all surrounding campsites. No cable TV or Wi-Fi in this wilderness park. After getting contradictory or not very reassuring answers to some of my questions on campground facilities we won't be coming back.

Rate shown is Good Sam discount. Our site was a nearly level grass pull-through and included a table. Most sites were occupied by seasonals. All hookups worked fine. No cable TV, but found around 15 channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi cost $2 and internet access was satisfactory. We would stay here again.

Rate shown is Good Sam discount. Friendly and helpful bilingual staff. Our site was a level gravel pull-through and included a table and fire ring. All hookups worked fine. No cable TV, but around 10 channels in English off the antenna. Wi-Fi cost $6 a night and I didn't use it so can't be sure how it works. Close to the autoroute there is some noise, but not noticeable inside the RV. We would stay here again if in the area.
