Paved park roads and site pads on east side. Other sites grass. Our site (#7) was a paved fairly level back-in surrounded by grass and dirt,a few hedges and mature trees for privacy. Some of the paved pads were heaved and bumpy and had gravel crush added to help with the leveling. Utilities all together at the back corner and worked fine. Cable TV had around 30 clear video channels plus many digital audio channels. Internet connection was solid and good enough for Skype. A few grass sites will take bigger rigs, but it is a tight fit for most. It took one fifth wheel 1/2 hour to back into one spot. The paved back-ins will take at most up to a 30 foot rig. Handy to the beach and lagoon. I would come here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Basic park. Level grassy and shaded sites. Some long term residents. Only a block away from the lake and we had a lake 'glimpse' from our site. Public mineral pool is across the street. Cable TV is an extra $4/day, $16/week. We liked it here as we were right in the village and could walk to stores/restaurants/lake unlike some other parks which are further away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Was not impressed with this campground. It was posted on the sign as a country club but it is actually an RV park. Should really not have the sign on the road until they have completed their renovations. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park. Walking distance to town. Nice staff. Sites are close, very few big rig sites and hard to maneuver. Spent several nights here and would go back. Our rig is 35' long. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an excellent family campground. It is less than 5 minutes to walk to the beach and Hot Springs. The sites are very nice, the owners and staff are friendly and helpful. They have a resident pair of peacocks and ducks. We stayed here for 12 days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Don't stay here! If zero was an option I would have chose that. The website photos are very deceptive don't use that as a reference. It is certainly not big rig friendly. Their only long site is less than 8 feet wide and the one pull through is quite short. A tent trailer or tent would fit but don't go there because of the service. Previous reviews are right and the owner there is likely the rudest person I have ever encountered in a service based business. Learn from our mistake. Don't go to Harrison Springs RV Park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My parents have been long-term parked here for several years and could write a book about this place. The female in charge of this place is money-hungry and doesn't care at all about customer service. She charges an arm and a leg for her sites and will find any excuse to charge people extra. She claims that her sites are $41 for only two people so she charges $6 for each additional child. Plus, if you have guests come and visit you, she will chase them down in their car and demand that they pay for the time they spent in the campground. If they do not pay, she will kick YOU out. I am not joking. I've seen her do this multiple times. Plus, if you are even a few minutes late past the 11am check out time, she will charge you a full day's rate. Do not stay here. I can not tell you how many times we have heard people get upset and swear that they will never stay here again. Save yourself the aggravation and money. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Horrible customer service. Did not have proper signs regarding rental rates of her equipment. We agreed on a price verbally and then she later tried to charge us more. Also swore when we talked to her. Ruined our trip and would never come back here again. We camped here in a Tent.
This is a pretty big park at 3,000 acres. The campgrounds are located near the back of it at the end of a gravel road. They can be a little cooler than the Fraser Valley as they are up in the mountains. There is also a really beautiful day-use area called Green Point down at Harrison Lake, turn left down the hill before entering the park. Some very nice trails and also canoe rentals to explore the lakes. Lots of logging roads nearby to explore. Very handy to Vancouver and Harrison village has sandy beaches, restaurants and ice cream. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Cheap since it's a provincial park. The park rangers are very nice. I wished they had full washrooms though and not just outhouses. Otherwise, would return here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I camped at Hick's Lake in spot #7. I really enjoyed it, although the spots right adjacent to the lake get windy in the afternoon. Note that there are lots of water taps around the campground, but none fitted with hose threads for filling RV water tanks. I was also surprised that there was no potable water tap at the sanitary station. So fill your tanks before you come. The easy hike around Hicks Lake takes less than an hour. I loved the lake, next time I will bring my kayak. Also note that there are no services up here except outhouses. Enjoy BC's parks! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice Campsite. Unfortunatley the Park Staff were offensive, rude and aggressive! I suggest some kind of host training, as these people had absolutley no manners. We were not ruining anyone else's experience, there were no complaints against us: we asked the nieghbors. But they used 3 staff members, intimidation and threat tactics to stop us when singing songs by the fire. The only staff member who was civil, was an older staff member on Sunday, who actually said good morning. Asked how we were doing, then politely informed us of certain rules. Definitely not worth the money! We camped here in a Tent.

Sasquatch Provincial Park is located a little NE of Harrison Hot Springs BC. There are three campgrounds - Lakeside, Hicks Lake and Bench. The first two are on small lakes and have a limited number of lakeside sites. All are heavily wooded. with large and well-separated sites. Most of the sites are on a reservation system but there are some first-come sites in each campground. The campgrounds are about seven miles from town, the last three of which are on a fairly good unpaved road. There is a dump station a mile or so before the first campground turnoff but there is no water there. Potable water is available from central spigots in each campground but filling a large tank from them is awkward, so going in with a full tank is recommended. Firewood is available for purchase from the rangers. We enjoyed this park and will go there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice RV park. Most of the lots are intended for sale and from what I gather, most are meant for those who purchase as a summer home, so not exactly full-time RVing except perhaps in the summer. As such, most of the sites have decks and gazebos built in. I gather that some sites are purchased but are used periodically and rented out to visitors at other times. We were put in Phase 2, which is new. Our site was therefore just gravel. The clubhouse and pool in Phase 2 were not yet finished. On one hand it was nice to be in Phase 2 as it is very quiet right now, most sites being new and unoccupied. On the other hand, it's the same rate for having to walk across to amenities, and the Wi-Fi is not good at all in Phase 2. In general: well kept, playground and carousel were fun for the little kids, the owners were very nice, it is pet friendly ($5 extra for dogs), and the pool is lovely and clean, as are the restrooms. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are RV newbies and made our “baby steps” 4-night first trip two ours down the road to Springs RV Resort. In short, it was perfect, right down to the weather. Very friendly and helpful operators. We have a TT 24’ bumper to hitch. Our spot was gravel covered, no weeds, level and deep enough so we could park our full size truck right in front as if hitched up. Would have taken a very long rig (we had spot 126). The spot also had a new 10'x10’ new wood deck and we could have parked the truck in front of that. Each pair of spots is surrounded on 3 sides with a new 6’ cedar fence. We had a 30-amp service and good tasting water but there is 50-amp power available. There is free Wi-Fi with a strong signal at the central buildings but weak to sometimes not there in our spot. The park has key card access control. The whole place is spotless and manicured. Central facilities are very new and include a beautiful pool with hot tub, great change rooms/showers and coin laundry. There is a separate new gathering building where you could have a BBQ. No open fires at your site (municipal bylaw) but propane fire pits are OK - they even offered to lend us one. There is a nice grassed fenced kids playground. Dog friendly but on leash only. The park is set up as fractional ownership of lots and most of phase 1 are sold, occupied and tastefully appointed with some very nice rigs. The adjacent phase 2 looks to be all leveled with gravel and site servicing with new main building and adults-only pool under construction. 1 km walk north on sidewalk to the Harrison Hot Springs waterfront, and a gorgeous 9-hole full-length golf course 1 km south. Nice pubs and places to eat nearby if you tire of eating in your trailer. Lots of nearby walking trails and Sasquatch Provincial Park nearly – try the 5 km circle walk around Hicks Lake. $54/night + $5 pet fee. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV park has terrific bathrooms, a lovely pool (depth only 4 1/2 feet) and hot tub. The park is very clean, secure and we found it to be quiet. Our particular site was a challenge to enter ( two 90 degree turns to back in). The management staff did offer another site but we chose to stay as it did offer some shade and the alternative had no privacy or shade. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We felt that the daily summer rate was steep but again, alternatives within Harrison's walking distance are scarce. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Expensive but about the best option we saw in town. We had booked another resort to have some trees around but it was a dump and way too small for our trailer. Thankfully, Springs had a site available. It seemed like the huge majority of sites were full timers. It was a bit tight but I was able to get our trailer in there. They obviously don't have many people coming and going. Beautiful pool and clubhouse area. A pretty decent playground with an old carousel the kids loved. Not a natural park though. It is basically a big gravel parking lot with services. Most sites do have some privacy because the long term residents have put up fences. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Very large lots. Not set up for in and out traffic. Brand new washrooms, showers and pool with hot tub. Very clean. A little crowded and noisy for me but it is OK for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We choose Harrison Hot Springs to meet friends from Vancouver that like to stay at the lodge. The Springs RV Resort seemed to be the best choice after looking online. Pulling into the gravel driveway I said to my wife: "Oh-No!" Most sites have a trailer parked for the season with the rest of the sites were overbuilt with decks, tents, gazebos, fences grills and more. Some people combined two or more sites for a really big family and/or friends compound. Heavy smokers abound. Our site was all plain gravel with one tree and an old wood picnic table. Getting backed in was not easy but the local residents were friendly and helpful. The music and TV was constant from nearby sites from 8AM to the 11PM quiet time. That said, at 11PM it did get very quiet. This seems to be a park the long-term family and friends return to decade after decade. On the plus side, the new owners have invested in a nice new pool and clubhouse area (children filled). If the rest of the park were this nice, The Springs would be a worthy stop when visiting BC. That said the other local parks did not look much better from the outside either. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have been seasonal campers at this park for the past three years, and have witnessed it's transformation, under new ownership, from an older, out-dated campground to an up-graded, well-planned resort community. Each summer has brought changes and improvements, including improved water and electrical services, better roads, landscaping, grassy areas, and coming soon, a pool, hot tub, and clubhouse. The park is very child friendly, with activities planned on weekends, such as arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, movies in the park, dances, etc. For the adults there are golf tournaments, poker games, bocce, and barbecues. Improvements are on-going at the park, and we are looking forward to our fourth summer at The Springs at Harrison. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have camped here for the last 5 years. It is a friendly and over all clean campsite. The management and staff are friendly and helpful. There is alot of changes happening that will increase the luster of the park. This year there is a new pool and hot tub, and they will also be an asset. We can't wait for camping season so that we can see the changes made. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We reserved our sites in advance. On reservation we specified that we had travel trailers with slide outs. Upon arrival we were given two sites that were not compatible for travel trailers but tent trailers. The staff was rude and not willing to accommodate us. We will never recommend this place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

The campground is now called Springs RV. Wi-Fi didn't work, they staff was friend and the park overall was clean. The only garbage bins we could find was at the front gate not very convenient. We had camped here in the past and we enjoyed the wide grassy sites as we have small grandchildren. The nice grassy sites had been replaced with sharp gravel, our grandson fell and got pretty scrapped up. It just wasn't kid friendly. They did have a play area but even walking on the sharp jagged rocks was difficult for all of us. Also it was very disappointing that they had removed a huge tree stump that you could walk into, we were looking forward to taken our annual picture of the grand kids in the stump but it was gone. It was a very disappointing trip we won't be returning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

The park is still being modernized, except they did not go to 50 amp when re-wiring! Sites are mixed season/permanent and transient, making it really tight to get into a site for a short stay. Future plans call for a separation of transients, putting them closer to the main road into the village. Overall, park is clean, well-managed, with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Wi-Fi works well in some areas. Lots of rabbits, birds, mountain scenery. Of the RV parks in the area, it's the nicest, and easiest in which to park and leave. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has gotten some bad reviews in the past, but seems to have improved a lot. There are a large number of permanent or seasonal residents, some who own their sites, but everything is neat and tidy. The sites graveled with some mature trees and the entire property is surrounded by trees. There is a miniature golf course and they are adding a hot tub. Free wifi is available but the signal was weak and performance was spotty. The managers were very helpful in solving a couple of small problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has been completely remodeled. Majority of sites are gravel and uninteresting. Nice playground area. Bad Wi-Fi. Showers are coin operated. Bathrooms have not been remodeled. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is need of a lot of work. The sites are not very level and when it rains as it did when we were there it is a mudhole. The washrooms looked clean and adequate but were not heated and therefor unusable when we visited. There are other campgrounds in the area that looked very nice and next time we are in the area we will stay in one of those. I paid $13 for the night because I'm cheap and had a half price coupon and I still felt I paid too much. We camped here in a Motorhome.
