We did not stay here after all. We found this campground from their beautiful interactive website and made a reservation. What a disappointment when we got there. First there was no signage so it was hard to find. At the entrance to the camp there was a small hand painted sign, so we had to make a rapid turn in. Down an awful road we came to the camp. Grass hadn't been cut, junk everywhere, and not a soul around. We walked around, looked at the supposed campsites and decided to look elsewhere for accommodation. Sad that this place is portrayed so beautifully on the web it puts expectations high which makes reality even more of a disappointment. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I tried to get into other campgrounds/RV Parks in the area but they were closed until May. I found this one, the guy that was on site, was happy to help us, and found a great spot looking across the mountains. The river walk was great which there was two different ones, they had a few things to buy, food, drinks on site, plus if you walk 5 minutes you can go to the General store for all the stuff you need, GAS, which was very handy, and the prices where excellent too. I was surprised to find WI-Fi here too being in the middle of nowhere. I will definitely stay here again. They seem happy enough to let your dog off leach as long as its out the main area of the campground, What I also liked about the place is, and also explained to us is that its in a banana belt, so they get less rain/wind/snow, and more sun, as the clouds slip off around that area of the campground, crazy eh! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here two separate times, about two weeks apart when passing through, but mainly because of the paucity of reasonable competition. If this park were not helped by KOA affiliation and in a popular area I feel it would be somewhat empty. It was expensive for the level of amenities, and I was less than impressed to have neither cable nor usable WiFi. Sites are basic, not well laid out, and vary greatly in quality from average to poor. No pavement and dirty gravel at sites. The laundry was not clean nor well maintained. There was no supervision of the inconsiderate and noisy campers. I see another person has commented on the "bear fence" and believe it not to be electrified nor capable of keeping out any healthy bruin. It might make the European RVers feel better. I would stay here again as there is no other choice for a quick overnight stay at Clearwater. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The KOA at Clearwater is a very versatile “campground”. It has lots of places for RV’s, trailers, cabins, and Condo units. WiFi was OK, not great. Most sites were separated by shade trees and bushes and fairly level. They have a decent supply store, and a restaurant. The perimeter has a safety electric fence keeping bears out. The entrance gate is closed at 10pm, also keeping bears out. Staff were friendly and helpful. A good place to stay for white water rafting, and touring Wells Gray Park – a must to visit in this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really loved this remote little campground, everything was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Some of the tent sites were hard to get into with our truck, but that was because of the beautiful forest. It was a great place to have as a base for exploring Wells Grey. We camped here in a Tent.
The park was rather a mess. We had a reservation for a large spot, but they "advised" us another "much nicer site," as we needed only 30 Amps. The large place was a bit more expensive, but this was never an issue for us. The new site was one of many all next to each-other pull-through and shady. The large site had no shade at all. Then a big shovel was coming and going all the time with rubbish. When we asked how long this would go on they said that they had no idea; they were not KOA personnel, but doing some job. It was Saturday and we asked about Sunday. The answer: "We guess not, but we don't know." The disturbance went on till about 7 pm. On Sunday (Father's Day) we couldn't believe it, but they started working again! Anyway not too long. On Monday morning a bunch of laborers made a lot of noise at 6 am, starting pick-ups, which were parked in some parking lot on the camping ground next to our RV. Two positive issues I want to mention about this camping ground. a) Located next to the entrance of Wells Gray, which is a fabulous provincial park with lots of wild life, especially black bears! b) A more than average camping restaurant, where we enjoyed a tasteful diner in a friendly ambiance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent base for exploring the oustanding scenery of the provincial park. Good services and friendly staff. Power pedestals have cable connection on them, but are not hooked up (yet?); NO local TV stations. Didn't try wifi-internet computer available in office. Campground roads are in lousy condition. Average spacing between sites; some shade trees in most of the campground. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly staff, shaded level site, Wi-Fi was free but did not work at the campsite had to go to office or game room. Restaurant on site serves breakfast and dinner (no lunch) was good and convenient. Probably the most reliable choice in the area. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Very good KOA. Everything was great including the on site restaurant that has great Canadian food at fair prices. The Wells Gray Provincial Park is near by and worth the time to visit. We had a nice stay with the new ownership that had just taken over in April. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great place to visit - Wells Grey Park is absolutely unbelievable, spectacular water falls. You definitely have to see at least once in your lifetime. The KOA was one of the nicer ones we have stayed at, unfortunately not one of the friendliest. I would have given this location a 10 if We were greeted with a better welcome, and a smile - even the grounds keeper sneered at us. Perhaps being early in the season or because of the volume of foreign visitors they just haven't gotten to the friendly part yet? We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It was difficult to register ahead for this park, the person on the phone wasn't particularly helpful. However, when we arrived we were offered a choice of a few campsites, unfortunately none of them had shade, but the one we chose had a beautiful lake view from up on the hill. The office staff was so very helpful as I was trying to locate some family things in the area. The park was quiet and had nice walking trails for our dogs. The canoe rental was great, newer canoe and good life jackets. The park was clean and very well maintained and the restaurant on site was really good. We really enjoyed our stay and will certainly stay again if traveling that way. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We arrived on October 21, nobody at the office, no information available. Power and water was still on at the sites and I assumed it is still open. Parked and hooked up to 30 amp power. Sites are on gravel, more or less level, pull through available and big enough for big rigs, slide outs and awnings. Grass between sites, hookups are dated, sewer is only 3" diameter. Wi-Fi was open and worked. Washrooms are dated and older design, somewhat clean. Later in the afternoon somebody came by and collected 25$ per night, no change, no receipt. In my opinion, it is a beautiful location overlooking Dutch Lake. This park could be a gold nugget with a little bit of money and work. The points are given mostly for the location and scenery. I would return again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here two nights, very quiet, a bit dusty since they do not have gravel drives. Good view of the lake, they rent canoes and small row boats. Staff very friendly and informative. The WIFI is the best ever strong 5 bars. Some sites have full shade and some very little. Restaurant on site for lunch and dinner. Tour bus stops here for lunches. 1 over the air TV channel. Will stay again in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, but getting run down. The full hookup site power and water were terrible. My surge protector kept shutting down because of low voltage (104) volts. The water pressure was so low that I had to fill my holding tank, then use my water pump in the rig. I was told that there is a leak under ground. I would probably pass the park up if travelling through the area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice resort. We overlooked the lake. It was quiet. They had good hiking trails right from the Resort. Staff was very accommodating. The showers were always clean. We would come here again. Thanks for the memories. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful location and views of lake (very warm) and mountains. Ample size sites. Only one washroom facility but large and clean. Staff very helpful. Excellent restaurant, pricey but nice. Would return and recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Plan to come here again in the future. Staff was great, restaurant as well and free WiFi was as strong as as at home, all in a great setting. We camped over the May long weekend and while the place was full, it did not feel crowded. They have redone the lower terrace of pull through sites and eliminated 1 site which makes the generous enough to allow extension of both slides and awnings. Agree with the comment regarding the showers, but it didn't concern us as we used our own. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park has spacious sites and a few with wonderful views of the lake, especially sites 35 through 39, (we stayed in site 36). They have a restaurant on site but we did not eat there. There is a trail that goes west around the lake that provides a good opportunity for exercise. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions to parks, etc. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Some sites have beautiful lake views -- we were lucky enough to get one (#37). Cabins line about 2/3 of the lake shore. It is a small lake side park, family friendly with nice staff. We didn't use bath houses. There is a restaurant on site that is quite good, if a bit pricey. It is a great location to explore Wells Gray Provincial Park. We would definitely return and would recommend it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park itsself is pretty, the problem is there are only a couple of showers for the entire place. Since there is a lake, everyone needs to shower everyday so lines can occur. For the distance off the highway, I would try another next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean park, right on the lake. Excellent restaurant. WiFi is free, but very unreliable. Sites are nice, but if crowded might be a little uncomfortable. Staff was very nice and accommodating. We spent three nights here and enjoyed them all. Would stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Very quiet. Right on the lakeshore of Dutch Lake. There are a couple of nice swimming areas. One at the park and one just up the street. Very friendly greeting upon arrival. We would stay here again if in the area. Fire rings. Good Sam discount. Nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The road to the pull-through sites is difficult to negotiate with a big rig. Sites are fairly level, treed but dirt surface. They would probably be muddy in the rain. Dump station by the showers. If you want a place that's away from it all, this will do. They also offer horseback rides. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is adjacent to golf course and has special 'Stay and Play' rates. Next to Wells Gray Park about 35 km north of Clearwater. Very relaxed atmosphere and challenging golf course. Great place for a 3 day stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the first (and last) campground from Clearwater with paved road access. Sites are large (many double sites), well groomed, and very private. Pit toilets, no running water (hard to use hand pump). Very nice park, with many beautiful falls nearby. Few mosquitoes. We would camp there again in a trailer for a few days. The park is remote, but worth the trip. We camped here in a Tent.
