Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground, Victoria, British Columbia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is not the place to go if you're traveling on a budget but it is very convenient to downtown Victoria and the service is excellent. They even agreed to let us check out late so we could spend time with our family. Thanks! There are quite a few long term campers in this park but it doesn't look junky and it's quite quiet, except for the traffic noise, but then it is near a larger city. We used this as a base to visit family in the area and it was very convenient for that. We would stay here again. We camped at Fort Victoria RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The traffic around Victoria is very busy especially at 'rush hour' so if you don't like sitting in traffic you may want to consider the bus or not trying to travel at all around rush hour.

Qualicum First Nation Campground, Qualicum Beach, British Columbia

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

First I have to say the location is fantastic, right on the water with good access to the beach. Don't count on service to go along with the location. When we arrived, at about 2:00PM the office was closed and a sign said it would re-open at 5:00PM. Strange, so we looked at a list of sites and tried to figure out which one we could take. Granted it was near the end of September and the campground wasn't full so the process was not as bad as it could have been. We picked a spot, not right on the water but the next row back and settled in. After supper we decided to go up to the office to register, and pay. We hadn't seen anyone from the campground around before that. At the office there was someone there and they took our money but didn't exactly make us feel welcome and didn't explain anything about the campground or it's rules. On the bright side the campground was quiet and the location, as I said, is great. The power and water worked well and we used the dump station on the way out the next morning with no trouble. All in all an OK stay. We camped at Qualicum First Nation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, Parksville, British Columbia

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

This is a very large and well used park but it is in a great location, with a huge beach (at low tide). There are flush toilets and free hot showers. It's quite close to Parksville which has most things you could want. The campground is in the trees so it's not the best place for solar power or satellite TV but there is good cell service. There are no hookups but there is a dump station ($5) and water at the dump station and throughout the campground. We would stay here again.

Gordon Bay Provincial Park, Lake Cowichan, British Columbia

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

This is a typical class "A" provincial park. The loop we were in was recently renovated so there were new picnic tables and lots of new gravel in the sites and on the roads. They were working on the other loop so I suspect it will be just as good by next camping season. There are flush toilets and hot showers (free) as well as a nice beach area and boat ramp. There is a short trail that goes out to the "point" with great views of the lake. The campground is not on the lake but a short walk away. We had no problem backing in our 31' fifth wheel into our spot and it looks like most of the spots would accommodate us. The whole campground is in the midst of huge evergreen trees so solar charging was nil and I suspect satellite reception would be the same. We did have cell service. We would stay here again. We camped at Gordon Bay Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We took the road from Port Renfrew to Lake Cowichan called the Pacific Marine road. It is paved all the way, except for some construction, and not as bad as I feared. It is a bit windy and some hills but we took it easy and had no problems.

Jordan River Regional Park, Jordan River, British Columbia

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

The location is great, right on the water - beach just a step away. We liked the wide open of this parking lot/campground but it may not be all that great in the hot summer. There are a few spots that are in the shade away from the water. This is a great place, apparently, to go surfing at least judging by all the surfers that showed up, it is. There is no one managing this campground so rules are more suggestions than rules. A lot of the surfers parked in the camp spots so it was difficult to tell which ones were occupied and which were not. The spots are fairly wide but having fire rings in each means the campfire of our neighbors was a little closer than we would have liked. Having said all this I think we would still go back to this spot, the location and the views are just spectacular (especially on a sunny day). We camped at Jordan River Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you stay here you may want to consider a trip to Port Renfrew and to the Botanical Beach Provincial Park. There is a hiking trail from the parking lot that goes right down to the beach where you can walk and watch the crashing waves come in! Go at low tide.

Kitty Coleman Beach Provincial Park, Comox, British Columbia

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

This is a class "C" provincial park so don't expect the same things you'd get at most BC Provincial Parks. It's run by the local community so it reminds me more of a community campground than a provincial park. Having said that the location is fantastic! Right on the water with easy access to the rocky beach and two boat ramps. The park is split in half with the north half having easier access but the camp spots are across the park road from the beach (although the fire rings and picnic tables are on the beach side of the road). The south half has spots right on the water but is a bit harder to get to with a little hill and narrow bridge to negotiate. We were in this half of the campground with a 31' fifth wheel and I had very little trouble. The host lady is very friendly and helpful. There is a tap which she said we could use to fill water containers but not the tank on the RV. There is no dump station. The camp spots are mostly in the shade so solar charging is limited. There was usable cell service in the campground. We would stay here again. We camped at Kitty Coleman Beach Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Kokanee Creek Provincial Park, Balfour, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

I can't add much to the other reviews, except to say the prices have gone up. The unserviced spots are $32 per night and the ones with power are $39. It's still a very nice park with good sized spots and not too far from Nelson which is becoming a busy little town! We camped at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Centennial Campground and Park, New Denver, British Columbia

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

This is a small campground run by the city situated at the city park on the lake. There are two areas of the campground; one shaded that has power hookups and one nearer the lake without hookups. Between the two is the field and ball diamond. There are two shower houses but the showers are pay. There is also a dump station that costs $5. The wifi is free. We stayed here before the kids were out of school but I can imagine it can get quite busy in the summer. The park is within easy walking distance to the Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre and Kohan Reflection Garden and is not too far from the 'downtown' of New Denver which has some interesting buildings and shops. We camped at Centennial Campground and Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rustic Camping, Hedley, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The name says it, Rustic. There are no hookups and no showers but flush toilets. The whole campground is grass, which is nice, and it's right next to the river. There isn't a whole lot to do here so I can't see staying here more than one night unless you were attending a group function. The driveway down to the campground is a bit steep and, when we were there, quite rocky, so go slow!! I think we would stay here again if we were passing through. We camped at Rustic Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Martha Creek Provincial Park, Revelstoke, British Columbia

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

We stayed in one of the 'pull through' sites next to the lake, it had a great view of the lake although it was not possible to get down to the lake because of a steep drop off. There is a day use area that allows easy access to the lake. There is a concrete boat launch that looked very good complete with wharf. The interior roads are paved and some of the camp spots are paved as well. There is also a brand new sani-dump station, $5 per use (make sure you have change to the machine) We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Martha Creek Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Paska Lake, Logan Lake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This is a BC Rec site so don't expect full hookups. There are pit toilets and that's about it for amenities. Each campsite has a picnic table and a fire ring and a great view of the lake. There is a boat launch as well. The access road in, about 8.5 Km, is paved but does have a couple of steep, short hills and some tight bends. The short driveway into the campground is gravel and is quite steep near the road. We have a 30' fifth wheel and had no problems. We camped here in the middle of June midweek and had the whole place to ourselves. I can see that it might get busy in the summer on a weekend. We would stay here again. We camped at Paska Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park, Chilliwack, British Columbia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very pleasant place to go to get away from it all for a few days, not the kind of place you're going to go for a quick overnight stop. It's about 50Km (30 miles) in on a good paved road. There is no cell service and, although we don't have a satellite dish, I would guess you wouldn't be able to get much satellite reception because of the trees and mountains. Having said that, turn off the phone and just relax in nature or go for a hike! We have a 31' fifth wheel so we like to stay in the "Radium" loop because it is a bit newer and the spots are a bit larger with more space in between. The drawback is that it's farther from the lake, but not too far. Most of the sites in this loop are reservable (a red tag on the site post saying "reserved") but if a spot isn't reserved for that night, you can camp in that spot for two nights. There is a notice board just before the turnoff to the Radium loop that will list the available sites so check it out before you go driving around looking for a spot. Also, be careful entering the park. The road has lots of potholes but it gets better as you go in. It sure slows down the traffic! We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fintry Provincial Park, West Kelowna, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice provincial park that is very busy during the summer season. It has sites that are in the shade and sites in the sun. Several sites are right on the lake which is good if you have a boat. There is a modern boat ramp and dock. There are a few pull-through sites that should accommodate the largest of RVs. The road down from Westside road is a bit steep and windy but if you take it slow you should have no problems. Westside road itself is also a bit windy, but again take it slow and it's not a problem. We will be back. We camped at Fintry Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Kentucky Alleyne Provincial Park, Merritt, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

The campsites in this park are split between Kentucky Lake and Alleyne Lake, with a few in between. We stayed at one of these in between spots that was a pull-through and had a great view of the east pond. If you like to fish this is your park and you'd probably want one of the sites nearer to one of the lakes. It was cool at night when we were there in September but the sun was warm so the spots near the lakes being in the trees are a bit cooler than those in the open. We had a great time hiking around the lakes. Swimming isn't really practical because of the mud on the lake shore but the lakes look to be perfect for small boats and canoes. We will be back. We camped at Kentucky Alleyne Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Swan Lake RV Resort, Vernon, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is the second time we've stayed at this park and we will do so again. It reminds us somewhat of the 'snowbird' parks in Arizona. The pool is nice and warm and the hot tub/spa is quite relaxing. It is close enough to Vernon to have everything you could want (including a Wal-mart). The only down side is the traffic noise which is not bad enough to keep us awake at night but can be heard. Also there is a railway just behind the park but we heard a train only once, so it's not much of an issue. It is a Passport America park but only for one night. We stayed two nights so we had to pay full cost for the second night ($44.00 CDN). We camped at Swan Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
