This RV park is getting tired, we tried to get into our pull though site with our 36' fiver, but the camp guy had to come and cut branches off the trees. Also had to reverse out as there simply wasn't enough room with all the stored RVs in the way. Some older RVs with blue tarps, etc. We have used this park before, but not again unless we need to. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very busy, but lots of trees and near the river. Very close to Christina Lake Golf Club, is a bonus. Dirt roads, but still big rig friendly. Office not staffed all day. Nice place for a few days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The location is brilliant, about 1 mile down hill from Hwy # 3 and just above the river and beach. The location blocks out almost all the road noise. With clearly defined rules that are enforced and an effective management team, this facility has great potential. Sadly, none of the aforementioned are present. During check in they do not even provide a site map or access code for the internet. Our site was a pull through, but it dropped off significantly at the back and the tree branches are not cropped high enough for big rigs. The roads are narrow, but in good repair. Services - the water is from a well and has great pressure, sewer was well located. Power was 30 amp and we experienced no issues. No cable TV. Wireless is advertised, but isn't available. I walked to a few sites and could not access it anywhere. Advised the Manager and her response was blame Telus. Rules don't exist, therefore sites have multiple tents, vehicles and even large boat trailers parked everywhere. They have no quiet time as both nights we had children screaming at 11pm to even midnight. Navigating a big rig is somewhat challenging due to the additional vehicles parked along and at times on the road. Departing our site I had to back up first to clear tree stumps. Definitely not worth $44. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Hah! I was here at the same time and I experienced the same thing; a rope across the road for the dog to run on. The dog was sitting in the middle of the road. We were trying to leave but had to wait for the owner to get out of his lawn chair, go out and get the dog out of the way, and lift the rope up so we could drive through! But besides that, we liked the campsite. We really liked the swimming hole just below the site, walking distance, which was picturesque and a great place to spend the afternoon. The people were friendly (owners), and the sites were a decent size. Christina Lake is worth visiting, the problem is that most parks really squeeze them in that are located around the lake. At Cascade you have more privacy and its not as busy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I try to be positive but I simply cannot find one thing positive to say about this place. Not one. In 12 years RV'ing and staying at over 160 private parks in the 11 western states and Alberta and BC, this has to be the worst of any. There are no rules given out so nothing to be enforced of any kind. Total chaos and unruly. RV sites with an RV and up to 3 tents. The ultimate and this is the honest to God truth (can send pix!), is someone put a rope between two trees up in the air a little over the road and used it as a dog run! It obviously was not high enough as there was a knot in the middle so someone ran into it and broke it at least once. I could go on and on but no sense; you get the message. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground isn't horrible but it certainly is not great, either. It's extremely conjested with sites crammed very close together. If you are interested in satellite reception, forget it. Too many trees everywhere. Our biggest complaint was with the WiFi. They advertise WiFi but it isn't really available at all sites: the signal is too weak to connect. The owner first said we were the only ones with a problem: that EVERYBODY else was using it without a problem, then tried to blame our laptops. It was OUR problem and they weren't really interested. Ahh: customer service at it's finest. We had booked 2 nights and left after the first. (To their credit, they did give us a refund.) We wouldn't stay here again and we don't recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good Sam Rate. This park has nice, friendly staff, and easy check. The park is situated on a bench above the Kettle River with a short walk to their own private beach. Has good sized grassy sites with tables and fire pits. Wood available $. Washrooms are clean (showers $), and there is a good laundry. WiFi was adequate on the east end of the park. Max 30 amp service. Some sites are shaded. The playground for kids was very popular during the summer with families. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Cascade Cove is about 1 mile past the town area right off highway 3. This is a small family run campground located on the Kettle River and very close to the the world famous Kettle Valley Railway and Trans Canada Trail. Cascade Cove has 50 sites with Wi-Fi access and provides 8 minute showers for $1. There are also a very nice laundry facility and a playground for the kids. All sites have plenty of grass and come with a fire pit. A short walk down to Kettle River and you will find a nice swimming cove that is private to registered guess. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We arranged to stay here with friends of ours after another campground didn't honor our reservation. Christina Pines was able to accommodate us and put both of our sites close to one another. They explained that although we were staying 4 nights we had to pay for the 5th night as it was the last of a long weekend. It was our only option so we agreed and felt that at least we wouldn't have to rush out prior to the checkout time on the final day. This park is extremely crowded. They had a trailer parked for the season that they said we could park our vehicles at as the owner wouldn't be there. That lasted an hour as they booked a motor home into that site. Everyone stopped to stare at the class A squeezed in front of the travel trailer at its picnic spot. Crazy! There was zero privacy. Our picnic table faced the street and sitting there we could see at least 10 other camp sites. Due to the number of people there was constant noise - cars pulling in/out, dogs barking, people doing things. Nothing excessive, just regular camping activities. At night it was so so quiet!! We couldn't believe it!! It's a 15 minute walk to the provincial day use beach area. The lake is warm and lovely. There is a nice pool at the campground. We only used it once though as it's only 6' deep and they are very strict about not allowing children to jump in. The hosts were very friendly. The WiFi only works at the pool, not at the sites. Once we left the last day they had that double parked motor home in our spot (our friends were still there so they saw him pull in). No mention to us about refunding the extra night they made us pay for. And our friends were being watched from the office as they had another party waiting for them to leave at 2pm so they could take their spot. I guess everyone is lucky we didn't decide to stay the night we paid for! No refund for us - they took 2 payments for our spots. Disappointing business practice. We will not be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a resort area and from what we could ascertain all the parks here were very overcrowded. We had a terrible time backing our 34' 5th wheel into our site. The sites are very small and crowded so we did not spend any time outside our RV due to the fact that less than 5-6' away there was either a dog kennel or someone sitting in a chair. So, needless to say we had NO privacy. There were some nicer, and much bigger, sites over on one side of the park, but they were all occupied and didn't look like any were coming open anytime soon. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very crowded high density park. Sewer hook ups far from spot, 2 hose lengths required. Surprisingly confrontational management. Very in my face about my dog sitting at my feet off leash at my camp. Previously not helpful regarding sewer hook up issue. Stark contrast to other Holiday trails facilities. Staff kept clean orderly site. Unfortunately their nature was better suited to running a correctional facility. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Another badly overpriced RV park. It is just OK and a fair price would be about $25. Add to the listed rate would be extra for each person over two, a cost for each animal and the WiFi, which can really add up. The sewer hookup is at the back of the lot so you need a very long sewer hose. The trees make it very difficult to get satellite reception. Verizon, Rogers and Telus cell service good. It is three blocks to the lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here for the night and were very happy we did. The Park is located one block from Christina Lake which is a beautiful swimming lake. The park also has a nice sized shallow pool which the kids enjoyed. The park was very full for a weekday but was very quiet at night. Our site was big enough for our travel trailer and we had a nice size lawn area with picnic table and fire pit. The park worker, was very kind and helpful. We will return here to enjoy the beach lake and mountains. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
