Overall, a very pleasant experience camping here. The campsite roads could be a little dusty on hot summer days and the trains (wooowooowooo) could be heard passing by all day and night. (Bring your ear plugs.) The 2010 review of this campsite is equally accurate in 2012. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
One of the best parks in the Fraser Valley public or private. It didn't get a 10 because it isn't 5 star fancy. That being said, what more can you ask for than well spaced level gravel sites in a mature forest setting on a river with what ever level of site services you require. The restroom/showers were clean and even included a condom dispenser. Sanitary dump, store and laundry facilities were above average. The staff were very professional and provided 24hr. security and the entrance is closed at 11:00 PM. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This must be a fairly new park. It is laid out well with extra long gravel spaces which are fairly level. There are wooden panels between spots giving you privacy. Each space has a picnic table and fire ring. This is a woodsy setting and very nice. I gave it a lower rating as it is very noisy as our spot was 200 feet off highway 97 which has lots of traffic and there are 2 rail lines operating 24/7 that run at least every half hour. If it was quieter I would have rated it a 10. The noise is extremely high. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were passing through Hope on our way to BC so this was just an overnight stop. We arrived late and in the dark and left very early so we cannot make any statements about the general condition of the place. The front staff/owner was pleasant, told us that there were plenty of spots (it was first week of January, we just gone through quite the blizzard and they weren't full) and to just pull into a pull through he pointed us to. He did note that they had closed the washrooms and showers for winter - their website does stipulate that the shower building closes after the Thanksgiving weekend and reopens for the Easter weekend. We were just happy they were open in winter and let us book in near 9 pm. After finding the hookups (they are under the white wooden boxes you have to lift off) and plugging in, we basically just had dinner and crashed for the night. We left early on without any further contact. So all in all, we were happy with what we got, as limited as our needs were and short as our stay was, less than 8 hours. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although this is an older park, it is still well maintained with very clean bathrooms. We enjoyed using the pool. The park is located between the freeway and a railway track. We did not find the freeway noise to be a bother but did waken to train whistles during the night. Other than that, is was quiet and pleasant. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park had good reception; a nice clean pool; large sites and was very quiet. Also had good internet connection. Not too fussy on back to back hookups. The washrooms are very clean. I would recommend this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great Park, seemed very crowded but we did pass through during Canada Day! The staff was helpful and moved us when we were not satisfied with the site we had. (The hook ups were on the wrong side?) Had an ok stocked store and a nice pool. Scenery is just amazing, and I did not hear any load noise from any highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park had very friendly managers and clean facilities. There are only a few sites for 40' motorhomes up by the office. The park is tucked inbetween two highways. The front sites have less noise and the rear sites are very pleasant for small RVs or tents but it has highway noise from busy Hwy 1. At $40 Canadian, this is an very expensive park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the worst campground in North America. We've been camping for the past 20 years all over US and Canada in a motor home and cabin, this has been the worst experience ever. The owner is extremely unfriendly and hostile. The best part of our stay was leaving there! Stay away from this place if possible. We have much better experience camping next door at Wild Rose RV Park. Staffs are very polite & friendly there. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
We enjoyed our stay so we stayed an extra night. Lots of trees between sites. Some are a tight fit. Nice pool and playground. Fire ring at the site, we will come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here a few times. The sites are a little small, but it is a nice secure place. There are lots of seasonal people so it is a little crowded. I have had trouble with people partying in the past, keeping us and our little kids up all night, and no one did anything about it. But that has not happened for the last couple of visits. Yes, we would return. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

There is not a lot of positive things about this park. We called them in advance to check if they could accommodate us (34' fifth wheel plus towing truck). We were told that would be no problem. When we arrived it took us half an hour to find a site which was long enough and had space to maneuver. The girl at the reception was not of much help. The site had a nice view but was quite muddy because there was heavy rain the days before. We had to share the water and electric with our neighbor. Once the boat traffic on the lake calmed down it was very quiet. Next morning we couldn't dump at the entrance because there was not enough space to get in. The park in general looked a bit aged but maintained. The free Wi-Fi was unreliable to not existent. The value for money is bad. We would not stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly mom and pop run park. Nothing fancy, but everything works and it has well kept gravel and grass sites. We had a great site looking out over the fish pond. This park is nestled in amongst tall fir trees and the only negative about it is it is close to the Coquihalla freeway, but no railway tracks. I would definitely stay here again. We had a beatiful walk to Othello tunnels. No problem getting a big rig in here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here with a camping club that has been coming to this park for several years. The owner is very friendly, and the campground has a nice covered pavilion for group get togethers. We were late checking in, so our site was not one of the nicest. There are several large grassy sites that are very nice. The fish pond is a neat attraction, and it is fun watching the owner feed the fish. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Hmm: Not so good. Yuck. We felt we needed eyes at the back of our heads, I will try to explain a little further. Guys camping freely in the bush. No "tents" just card board boxes as blankets. The kind of people that don't have access to a shower to clean themselves and I don't even want to think about the "what goes in must come out" situation. Getting the picture? Maybe they are gone now, I have no idea. Not in a hurry to return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a shockingly downscale park. It may be clean but the facilities are more on par with a third world country. There are so many long-term residents with lean-to's built up around their trailers that this park looks more like a rural Louisiana trailer park than an RV park. The playground was unsafe, the shower was partly made of (painted) chipboard and the highway was so close you could actually see the semi-trailer lights shine through your window each time one went past. We will never be going back there again, especially since there are so many others in the area. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We've stayed here before, never rated. This place, as previous reviewers have stated, could use some TLC however, it's close to the tunnels which are great. There's a fishing pond for kids, which our grandchild loved and it's dog friendly which I really like. Great overnight spot and we'd stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pleasant hosts and great neighbors made this a great trip. The whole campground could use some TLC but otherwise quite nice. Free hot showers and firewood is available for $5 a bundle. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just needed a place to park overnight and for only $20 we couldn’t be too fussy. And a dry parking place was what we got. The restrooms were awful; fortunately we are self-contained. We were lucky to find anything; it was our first time in Canada, and we didn’t realize that it was the beginning of a major 3 day weekend. Our spot was by a by a beautiful river, and walking distance to the little town. Wi-Fi worked great. And the staff was really nice, eh? We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a wonderful site with a view of the Fraser River. Very friendly staff and our rate reflects a Senior Citizens discount. Great park, would stay here again. Great access to the city. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean well maintained park adjacent to downtown Hope right on the Fraser River, easy walk to downtown. This well treed park is on an Indian Reserve and is run by very accommodating natives. The level gravel sites are well spaced with some underbrush separation, most have a table and many are pull throughs and tents are very welcome. My wife (VERY PARTICULAR) used the washrooms while here and approved. We didn't observe the laundromat. This park would have received a 7 or 8 if they had sewer hook ups. Due to lack of sewer connections, we didn't stay at this park but the staff readily phoned and made reservations at another park that met our requirements. I would recommend this to anyone not requiring sewer hook up. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The rest rooms were clean. The showers were free and in the rest rooms. The owner was friendly and was upgrading the site. The sites were all back-in and the roads in and out were narrow. The site is in between the highway and the railroad tracks and a train goes by every 2 hours. My wife now knows how a tornado sounds. There must be a train crossing very near, because each train blows it's horn 3 times. I would rate it higher except for the noise. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park for a few days. The owners live on site and keep the grounds and facilities clean. Roads are paved. There is large pine trees for shade and nice landscape trees thru out the park. The sites and access is a bit tight for big rigs, but it is doable. There is some train noise during the night. Checked out a couple of the parks in the area and this was the best for us. The Hope Pizza is very good, but pricey. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is very nice, with wide, level sites with plenty of grass. There were two problems with this park. (1) The WIFI is slow and drops out a lot, and (2) the power has a problem. The second problem is most worrisome. I have a Kili-a-Watt unit that I plug in to monitor voltage, and the voltage would drop to less than 100 volts during the dinner hours. Anything less than 112 can damage devices that have electronics in them, e.g. air conditioners, microwaves, TV's etc. I would like to recommend this park, but until this problem is fixed, I just cannot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This Park is just too cute; nice lots. We stayed in the front, but next time will try to get about mid way. Train is a little loud, but what do you expect? It's a train. Very nice owners; they were very accommodating to us and our friends. They set us up so we could be across from each other. Pet friendly, other campers were very nice, close to Hope and the tunnels. No bells and whistles, but beautiful mountain views, just very relaxing. Just what you need after a long work week. We will definitely stay again.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is Good Sam. After tax it is 40.23 for full hook-up, pull-through. Very nice, well maintained, and clean campground. Easy access to Hwy 1. Beautiful mountain views. Very friendly and helpful owners. Would recommend this campground and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked this park. The hosts do a great job keeping everything tidy, and they are very friendly. Mountain views are unbelievable. Cable was kind of fuzzy but Wifi worked great. We were in Site 10, which like most sites near the front of the campground are fairly open. There are a number of sites further back that are separated by hedges. The sites further back have their own fire rings, while near the front there is a communal one. There is a dog walk at the rear of the campground but if your dog is energetic, there are miles of quiet country roads to explore. The Fraser is accessible via a 10 minute walk to the west. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pretty park in green setting. Pull through sites are difficult to turn into with big 40' rigs. It can be done but carefully. 10% discount with Good Sam Memberships but there is still the 12% tax that is added to everything. Located at west end of Hope and must drive across town to the east to get to the Othello Tunnels which should not be missed. Beautiful surroundings with huge mountains rising above you like the Pali of Hawaii. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I could have rated this park lower but because of the nice facilities I didn't. The first 9 pull through sites are nice but because of the neighbors refrigeration trucks running 24/7 are not very desirable. They kick on and off all day long. The noise didn't bother us to much, we stayed in one of the 9, but if you don't like noise make sure you get a spot towards the back. The noise is blocked by some very beautiful trees. The noise from the trains could also make some people unhappy. The Wi-Fi, cable TV is very good and the restrooms are nice and clean. Just beware of the refrigeration truck noise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The person on staff was not knowledgeable about the park or RV's - she had no idea which way to access the sites, or which sites were better etc. She had no idea how to get from the park to town on the park map. As it turned out, we were given an un-level site that was under and beside a tree so that we couldn't open our slides without either hitting the tree or having to put several boards under the wheels. The park was not at all full, so she gave us another site that was level and open, however we felt she should have known this was a less than desirable site and only used it if the park was full. Sites are grass with picnic tables. Wi-Fi was excellent. Location is near the Trans Canada (a point in its favor for us as it was easy access, others might find the road noise objectionable). It is also near fuel and a nice little town for shopping, biking or walking. We just stayed overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place to stop over, some walking trails and country roads to walk and run. Playground was old and needed a little work. The folks running it were very nice and friendly. Beautiful view of the mountains. Trains running frequently across the road. Nice place for a stop over and would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are nicely situated with easy on off the highway. Park is clean and well supervised. Cable TV is offered but is terrible. We were told two years ago that it was being improved, but there has been no change. Not a bad overnight stay while en route, but not a destination park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites for over-nighters are close together. We stayed here on a holiday week-end so the park was full, which made the sites seem even closer. The park is well-maintained and has a nice doggy trail at the rear of the park. We would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is daily rate for a FHU 30 amp, pull through with Good Sam discount. Check-in was excellent. Roads are asphalt, but somewhat narrow. Pull through sites up front are gravel, all others are back-in, many on grass. Restrooms and showers were immaculate, laundry has 2 washers and dryers. There is train noise as the tracks are across the road from the park and the back of the park receives noise from Hwy 1, though neither bothered us. A nice place to use as a base to visit the Hope area or to simply overnight. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here on our way back into the states. Clean park with good water, power and electric. There's enough room for slides and awnings but the sites are rather close together creating a rather crowded atmosphere! Sites were fairly level and the grounds were well maintained. Beautiful area, with outstanding views but neither my husband nor I thought we would want to spend time sitting outside our coach. Railroad tracks are located across the street from the park and were loud at times, but if the trains were running at night it didn't disturb our sleep. The front of the park has pulls throughs so we didn't have to unhook our tow. We would stay here again as an overnighter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are frequent campers at Wild Rose. We enjoy the private sites at the rear, as they are separated by large hedges. There is a farm next door with the friendly cows coming to visit occasionally. The only downfall is that the Wi-Fi doesn't work at the rear of the park. The management is very friendly and keep the park in excellent order. We camped here in a Truck Camper.

The park is very clean and nice looking. The entrance is rather narrow and one has to drive the rig very carefully. The restrooms and showers are very old but clean. The mountain view is astonishing. We had a very much "Rambo experience" as Rambo First Blood was shot in these mountains and in the city of Hope. The camping is surrounded by busy highways and there is traffic noise on both sides. The area of Hope is beautiful. The Rambo trail in the city is very disappointing. They refer to the sites where the movie was shot, but you can hardly recognize a place, as most has been destroyed or changed. The owner and his wife are very nice and hospitable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean park and friendly managers, but not the best for big rigs. We stayed 2 nights, in our 33foot rig, in a gravel pull-through, without any shade. There are very few pull-through sites and some of them would be very difficult for a big rig to get out of. The back section of the park is all back-ins with grass and trees which makes it much more appealing. Those sites appear to be for "long-term" stays. The free Wi-Fi worked well and there was a very basic cable selection. We would stay here again if in the area, but would also have a reservation with an RV our size. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Upon arrival the office couldn't find my reservation. My phone call record was found finally and I was able to get a campsite. Our backin site was on grass and not too level. A few shrubs on either side of our site did make it feel more private. There is some noise from freight trains nearby. Cable TV had a few blurry channels. WIFI works well(using it now for this review) All sites here are 30 or 50 amp and as it's a hot night the air conditioner comes in handy. I would come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A better than average park. I was in space 6, a pull through, but had to unhook to get into the site. I was able to get satellite TV. Good 50 amp. Wi-Fi is free but very slow. The place is almost always full so be sure to make reservations. Negative: speed bumps. I had to crawl over them and hope I didn't tear off my sewer connection. I can never understand why RV Parks punish everyone for the inconsiderate few who speed. Just talk to them or throw them out of the park. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and very pretty. We got a site on the gravel and you want to ask for the grass. This gravel area appeared to be an playground or something at one time and they decided to make it into three sites; not real good. We would go there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had site #43, a grassy, level, FHU, back-in with cable, Wi-Fi and beautiful views. The site was deep enough for our 30 ft class A and double wide so that the car could easily be parked to one side. The more permanent or seasonal sites were well kept and not derelict in anyway. Park was easy to access from TC-1. We were very happy with the cable TV and free Wi-Fi that reached our site. The Othello Tunnels were definitely worth a side-trip. We camped here in a Motorhome.
