Coldspring campground is one of four campgrounds in E.C. Manning Provincial Park. Manning Park is in southwest BC in the heart of the Cascade Mountains between Hope and Princton. Many of Coldspring campsites are on the Similkameen River. In June the river was high and fast. The sound of rushing water was a pleasant backdrop to a great camping experience. When I was there, a 'boil water' advisory was in effect, so I was glad my water tank was full. There are some of the best hiking trails in the world in Manning Park, from easy level trails to high alpine stenuous hiking. In June, there was still a considerable amount of snow on the higher elevation trails. The campgrounds are a great staging area for hiking. The staff was friendly and helpfull. The park was immaculately clean. Enjoy BC Parks! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is the very best no-services forest campground. All sites are level gravel, very well spread out in a beautiful deep forest. There are no bad sites here, all are back-in, long enough for any rigs, and large enough for tents or bug screen shelters (you'll need one). Large picnic benches with steel shelf for BBQ. New unheated bathrooms, cleaner than yours at home, with free hot showers and dish washing sinks. Interior roads are oiled gravel to keep dust down. There are lake-front sites, but up a steep bank from the water. There is no dump station, and the nearest is three miles away and $5 Canadian . Campground is very quiet, several miles off the highway, and no powerboats on the lake. No cell service of any kind, this is wild country. The only thing keeping this from being a ten is paved roads and a sewer dump station. E.C. Manning is a very well kept secret, as beautiful as North Cascades National Park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice Provincial Park. Great trails around the Lightning Lake. Friendly Staff. Lots of big trees and separation from other sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Nicest park we have stayed in without hookups! Large level sites, wooded with big spaces between sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
