Mountain Shadows Campground, Sparwood, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

May 2018 was our second stay here, and we love the place. Close to town, lovely forest, solid wifi if you're close to the office (site #8 two years ago wasn't as solid as this year's #1), clean facilities, and a huge network of beautiful hiking trails (almost 200 km of them in total). We live a quiet rural lifestyle and didn't even notice the highway noise last night, but on my walk this morning I did notice that the sites along the highway side of the loop are substantially noisier. We camped at Mountain Shadows Campground in a Motorhome.

Canyon Alpine RV Park & Campground, Boston Bar, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

I chose this park to stay at because I'd seen comments about having new owners who were doing a lot of work on the property. I don't know what the park looked like previously, but the new owners have clearly already done a great deal of work. The 31 sites in the park are terraced up an increasingly-steep slope, but the sites themselves are very level, and new gravel has just been laid on each. The sites vary somewhat in size, but the lowest-level one I took (#2) was very large, and very easy to get in and out of with my 51-foot-long combination. The bathroom was quite exceptional - all new and spotless. The men's has 2 showers, 2 toilets, and a urinal. A final detail - even the wi-fi was fast and free. We camped at Canyon Alpine RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great base for exploring the Fraser Canyon - Hell's Gate, but also excellent hiking and endless backroads.

Watson Lake Campground (Yukon Government), Watson Lake, Yukon

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Like all Yukon Government campgrounds, the Watson Lake Campground is great value at $12 Canadian including firewood. Like most of them, sites are large, well-spaced, and everything is very clean. The only downsides to the Watson Lake Campground are the 8-kilometer drive off the Alaska Highway on a sometimes rough gravel road, and the pretty limited lake access. Some "exit" signs would make it easier to get out of the maze of roads. The location does make it a very good location to explore Watson Lake from. We camped at Watson Lake Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

Fraser Cove Campground and Guest Cottage, Lillooet, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

The campground has new owners and the property has been re-configured, so many of the previous comments don't apply. Rates have gone up dramatically apparently but are now in line with the BC standard. There is now only 1 campsite on the upper terrace now, and that's the one I had with my 32-foot Class A and toad. There is 15 amp and no wifi on the upper terrace. There are about 15 sites on the lower terrace (some with 30 amp service), and 3 tent sites below that. The new owners are wonderful hosts. The place is very dog-friendly, the road to the Old Bridge is a great walk, and the sandy river-beach is fun for them to play on. I planned on 1 night and now on my 3rd - love this place. Wifi is not great but that's true for all of Lillooet. Being a mile from an extremely good winery (Fort Berens) is a bonus. We camped at Fraser Cove Campground and Guest Cottage in a Motorhome.

Pender Harbour Resort & Marina, Pender Harbour, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

June 2017, RV sites are no longer available. I tried to get a spot and got an email reply: "Our RV sites are all kept long term now so we do not have anything to offer you." We camped at Pender Harbour Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Dezadeash Lake Campground (Yukon Government), Haines Junction, Yukon

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

The location of this campground, jutting out into the lake and close to several Kluane National Park hiking trails, is excellent. Many of the 20 sites are waterfront, with actual beach access ranging from decent to very good. The campground seems to get little use (we've stayed her 3 times in 2015 and 2016, and will be back), but is very clean and well maintained. Few of the sites are suitable for big rigs, and there are no pull-throughs. Firewood, as at all Yukon Parks campgrounds, is free. We camped at Dezadeash Lake Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

Blue Cedars RV Park and Campground, Prince George, British Columbia

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Reading some of the reviews about small sites, I had to keep making sure that I was still reading about Blue Cedars - my pull-through, #21, is one of the larger sites I've had at a commercial RV park. There's plenty of trees to keep cool, though some of those can make maneuvering a large rig a bit challenging (with toad, I'm 51 feet). Lots of grass, and lots of places to walk my dogs. Close to town for shopping and even a casino. We camped at Blue Cedars RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Conrad Campground, Carcross, Yukon

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

My initial look at the new Territorial campground at Conrad last fall left me with a very negative opinion of it, so I decided to have a really good look around now that the snow is gone, though it doesn't open for another month. My summary now is that I have absolutely nothing good to say about the campground. It's planning, engineering and construction are all hugely flawed. Only 2 of the campsites are even close to being level, and many are sloped in two directions. The location and views are wonderful, and deserve a well-built campground. There isn't even any beach access, much less a boat launch - the superb and endless gravel beach of Windy Arm (Tagish Lake) is a couple of hundred feet through brush below the lower campsites. Even the tables are very poorly built, and I expect some will be broken during the first season. The group camping site is an old gravel pit, and has lost none of that character. I expected a great campground that we would use often, but we won't be back. We camped at Conrad Campground in a Motorhome.

The Conrad historic townsite is a few hundred yards away - 2 buildings and the ruins of a mining aerial tramway remain, and the gravel beach is excellent. Superb hiking on Montana Mountain starts a mile away.

Oceanside RV Park, Haines, Alaska

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Location, location, location. It's an older park and sites are tight, but the views are spectacular and the hostess is wonderful. We stayed for 4 nights over Easter, and there were only 2 other rigs, so tight spaces weren't a problem for our 32-foot with 2 slides. There are several picnic tables and fire pits on a grass strip overlooking the rocky beach - one for each 5 sites perhaps. Being able to walk everywhere was the reason we looked at Oceanside first, and even if any of the other parks had been open we probably still would have chosen it. The 2 restrooms and the pay shower ($3 for 8 minutes) were very clean. We camped at Oceanside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government), Destruction Bay, Yukon

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This is a stunningly beautiful Yukon Government campground on massive Kluane Lake. For the $12 nightly fee you get a huge site, unlimited firewood, and spotlessly clean outhouses. There are 8 sites on the lake, 31 more in the forest, about 1/3 of which are pull-throughs. The beach offers great walking for miles in either direction, and an old abandoned section of the campground adjacent to the east has a very nice interpretive trail. Tenting is no longer allowed due to problems with grizzly bears. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

Pine Creek Campground, Atlin, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This is a forested boondocking campground run by the town, with fees paid on the honour system at any business in Atlin. Access is tight even with our 31-foot Class A, due to overhanging and encroaching trees - best for small RVs. Lovely and very quiet campground, though. Outhouse toilets are very clean. We camped at Pine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Norseman Adventures RV Park, Atlin, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

I give Norseman a high mark because, despite the lack of facilities, it has an incredible location, a wonderful host, and is dirt cheap. The host has owned the property since 1985, is well past retirement age, and loves what he's doing. He even took 6 guests out on a boat tour one of the 3 evenings we spent there, at no charge. The Internet connection is extremely poor, to the point that he probably shouldn't advertise it or charge for it, but I only paid $5 for the 3 days and probably got that much value out of it. We camped at Norseman Adventures RV Park in a Motorhome.
