This park is located south of downtown with easy access off the highway. Friendly staff with quick registration. Our site (#17) was a gravel back-in surrounded by trees. It included a picnic table and fire ring. Hookups were midway and all worked fine. No cable or OTA TV and satellite not possible due to trees. Campground Wi-Fi was fairly slow, so reconnected to a Shaw open channel and the bandwidth was good enough for streaming. Dump station and garbage at the exit. We would stay here again if in the area.

This park suffered extensive damage after the floods of 2013. Fortunately, the town has done a good job of restoring it and it looks just fine. At the time of our stay, construction in the downtown area limited access into the park. The main entrance at 5th Ave. was the only way in. Our site (#1) was a fairly long gravel pull-in surrounded by grass or trees and included a picnic table and fire ring. You could back-in, but then the power pedestal would be on the wrong side. Water is available from a spigot near site 49. Narrow park road would make it hard for traffic to get by while filling up. Nicely landscaped park, but the posts along the road may be a hindrance to big rigs. Some sites are pretty tight as I spotted one awning only partially out due to trees in the way. No cable TV, but received a couple of OTA channels. Most sites would not be able to pick up any satellite due to the trees. Wi-Fi was a Telus open channel that had enough bandwidth for just about anything including streaming. If ever in the area again, we might check out campgrounds up near Okotoks that have full hookups instead of coming here.

We had a reservation for this park, but couldn't find our site right away as it was not in the main section. There are three sections; the main one with 34 sites and two smaller ones with one near the ball diamonds and the other near the east side perimeter. We ended up taking an unoccupied site (#29) which backed up to an open field. Our site was a gravel back-in surrounded by grass and included a picnic table and fire ring. Hookups were midway and all worked fine. No cable TV, but found about 5 OTA channels, most from Calgary. Satellite okay for the open sites, but probably not for the treed ones in the main section. Wi-Fi worked good enough for e-mail and browsing. We would stay here again if in the area.

This park doesn't take reservations, so we were pleasantly surprised to find a few full hookup sites still available. Self-registration or register at the Rec Centre nearby. Our site was a full hookup gravel back-in surrounded by grass. It included a picnic table. It had recently rained and there were some sites with standing water, but ours was dry. No cable TV, but was able to get several OTA channels. Satellite should be no problem as the park is fairly open. The Wi-Fi would not connect no matter what I tried. The campground is surrounded by many recreation activities. Pretty impressive Rec Centre for a small town. We would stay here again if in the area.

The road leading to the park goes through a golf course fairway, so I was half expecting a golf ball to whack the side of our RV. Thankfully, that didn't happen. Nice location down near the North Saskatchewan River. Registration was fast as we had a reservation. Office staff moved us to a bigger site as the park wasn't full. Our site turned out to be an end one with plenty of space on the side of our entrance door. However, the slideout on the other side would have encroached on the adjacent site. Amenities included a picnic table and fire ring. Hookups were located at the rear corner and they all worked fine. No cable TV and only managed one channel of OTA TV (due to our location below the surrounding terrain), so satellite might be a challenge as well. Wi-Fi worked well enough for e-mail and browsing. This place is family oriented, so you can expect a certain amount of noise from all the kids playing around. There is a boat ramp for access to the river. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is one out of the way place. We must have driven down about 5 or 6 roads to get here. So I was surprised to see it had a Good Sam affiliation. Although there were plenty of full hookup sites it was fairly rough looking. Most of the pads were very unlevel. Our campground host gave us the most level site (a pull-through), but it still wasn't that level. Most sites are back-ins. Our site was very long and would fit any size rig. It included a picnic table and fire ring. The utilities all worked fine, although the sewer outlet was on an awkward angle. All the sites were fairly open, so no problem with satellite TV. No cable TV, but we did pick up 5 or 6 OTA channels from Edmonton. No Wi-Fi access to be found. There was a pond nearby with some Canada Geese. Most of the other RVs appeared to be permanent or seasonal. Due to its remote location it is more likely that if ever in the area again we would probably consider the campgrounds over near Alberta Beach next time.

This park is located in a grass field surrounded by the local fairgrounds. During our stay a restroom and shower building was being built. All of the sites were either grass or gravel pull-throughs with shared hookups. As RVs were parked opposite to each other at adjacent sites, the hookups were still on driver's side. The sites were big enough for a big rig and toad. They included a picnic table and fire ring. The only issue was the site number posts which might make turning a long rig a challenge. All utilities worked fine. No cable or OTA TV, but sites open enough for satellite. No Wi-Fi access to the internet found. Other than a few RVs that appeared to be seasonal, we were the only transient at the park. In the unlikely event we were ever in this area again, we would probably stay here due to the full hookups.

First time in over 10 years we have been able to reserve a full hookup site at this park due to a downturn in the local economy. Over the phone and in person the office staff were great, very professional and helpful. The full hookup sites aren't as scenic as some of the electric and water sites near the reservoir. The site pads aren't very long either. They are more suitable for units up to 30 ft. Big rigs are better off in the 50 amp electric and water pull-through sites. All the full hookups are back-in sites with 30 amp power. The power and water were on shared posts. Our site was fairly level with some downslope on the driver side. It included a picnic table and there was a community firepit nearby. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV, 1 channel off the air, and our site (#6) was open enough for satellite TV. Wi-Fi was frustrating most of the time. Lack of bandwidth and too many people on at the same time made it hard to stay on, and even when we could it was painfully slow. We noticed more traffic noise at this site than when we camped down below at the E&W sites. Clean and efficient laundromat. There is a playground down near the waterfront sites. Walking trails to Muskoseepi Park and the Discovery Centre (tourist info and museum). This park is still our favourite campground for this area and we will keep staying here in the future.

Date of Stay:

On arrival (even though it was posted open from 9 am to 5 pm) I had to phone staff to check-in. There didn't appear to many other campers staying the night. Most of the full hookup sites appeared to be pull-throughs. Our site was long enough for a big rig and toad, fairly level (other sites weren't), good spacing with trees and grass between sites, and included a picnic table and fire ring. The utilities were well placed and all worked fine. Park advertises Wi-Fi, but no connection from our site. No cable or OTA TV and satellite might be a problem with all those trees. Looked like a recently renovated restroom and shower building. Never used any of the facilities so can't comment on them. For an overnight stay we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Office was closed, so had to get the campground host to check us in. Gravel park road and gravel pull-through sites. Our site was fairly level and all utilities worked fine. Wi-Fi was great, as we were fairly close to the antenna. No cable TV, but several OTA stations that are rebroadcast by the community. Host said they would lose these stations by next month, so after that you will need satellite to get anything. Great panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. We have stayed here many times in the past and will continue to do so.

Date of Stay:

Park roads and sites gravel. Other than one pull-through, all sites were back-in. A couple of small cabins were available for rent. Our site was long enough for a big rig, but most sites were not. The picnic tables had recently been refinished. At the south end of the campground was a Nature House, but it was closed. The bridge over Falls Creek was gone which meant the trail was cut between this campground and the Falls Creek campground. There is a seasonal store at the entrance to the campground, but it was closed during our stay. There were showers (cost $2) in the back of the building. Bear proof garbage and recycle containers which are the norm for most BC parks. A viewing platform on the river a good place for fishing, but strictly catch and release now. A trail across the road from the campground climbed up to a lookout. We would stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Self registration, although a sign said an attendant would come around later (which didn't happen in our case). Access road and main park loop road paved, interior roads gravel and individual sites gravel back-ins. Some sites (including ours) well laid out, while some sites had steep access to the pads. Our site was large enough for a big rig and included a picnic table and fire ring. The table was the standard cedar which had not been maintained in a while. No OTA TV and satellite TV would have been impossible due to the trees. No Wi-Fi or cell phone service either. A pay phone down near the beach was not working, so don't know how one would be able to get hold of anyone in an emergency. There was a beach trail nearby, but it was fairly steep and not maintained. We probably would not bother staying here again if in the area.

Rate shown is for resident senior off season and includes reservation fee. This campground was closed last September due to a wildfire that destroyed some of the park. After restoring the burned out campsites (less than 10 I believe) and cutting down damaged trees, the park was re-opened earlier this month. The section down by the river where we stayed was unaffected by the fire. Our site was a large, level, gravel back-in with lots of privacy due to the surrounding forest. Due to a few sloughs in our section there were mosquitoes. The more open sections further from the river shouldn't be as buggy. It included a picnic table and fire ring. No hookups at this park. Water available at the two island dump station and several locations around the campground loops. Pit and flush toilets are located throughout the park. Plenty of trails including the Trans Canada Trail (which used to be the Kettle Valley Railway). Along the river is a small beach. We saw several people fly fishing there as well. The playground has a series of bike ramps that have sand which got tracked into the restrooms, but the toilets and showers were still clean. We enjoyed our stay at this park and wouldn't hesitate to come back again.

The park road is fairly narrow and two way traffic not possible near the entrance. Exiting back onto street a challenge as well. Beyond that this is an excellent park. Friendly and courteous staff who checked us in quickly and escorted/guided us into our river view site. The site was a good crushed gravel site with grass between adjacent sites. A table was included at the site. No fire ring, but there was a group fire pit site nearby. There appeared to be many seasonal or permanent sites. While the river view sites were back-ins, there were some overnight pull-through sites as well. Well landscaped and maintained park. Cable TV had around 50 channels and they were clear. Wi-Fi was strong at time of use and no problem browsing or for e-mail. There was an old drive-in theatre screen on site that marked the park's earlier use. We would definitely stay at this park if in the area again.

Rate shown is for resident seniors off season. Park roads have been recently paved, campsites are mostly gravel back-ins with two pull-throughs, and there is an excellent dump station near the entrance. Our site was fairly level and included a picnic table and fire ring. Lots of privacy between sites and plenty of shade from the trees. There are beach access trails throughout the campground and some sites have direct access to the beach as well. No hookups at the site, except for sites 1-18 that have electric. Drinking water available at the dump station and a few faucets along the campground road. The beach was sandy during our stay, but during low water can be muddy. This is an excellent facility and we would have no hesitation on staying here again.
