Wonderful provincial park. Bigger rigs choose your site carefully! I have a 33' RV with full bed truck and had a couple to choose from mid-week. Back-in only. No hook-ups but plenty of room at my site with picnic table, fire ring, trees and plenty of forest to explore. There are rest-rooms don't know about showers. I found provincial parks throughout BC to be very good. A good home base for Radium and lower Kootenay valley and a bit farther to Fairmont. If your self-contained this is a wonderful place - if there's room for you! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wifi extremely limited--barely connecting and I'm in a spot very near the router. 20 amp service--fine for one appliance at a time--but don't run your AC and anything else. I'd overnight here again. If it had not been so hot I would have gone to the Provincial Park just down the road--but BC provincial parks have no hookups at all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, quiet place - shaded. A little older but clean and good. Good owner / staff (one in the same!) They work hard at keeping it up. We certainly recommend it and would go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 2 nights. The accommodations are excellent, with a entertainment center and exercise room. The rate cited is the RPI member rate. The campsite had a deck that ran the length of our 34' RV. At one end, there was a lean-to with a covered picnic table and propane barbecue. The free Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. The sites were spacious and deep. This is one of the best RV parks we have ever encountered! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground rates a 9 or a 10 based solely on amenities and upon location/area. It rates a 1 or a 2 for how we (and other RPI "guests") were/are treated. This is an ownership / membership / rental park. The standard rental for an RV site (15/30/50 amp, water, sewer) is 69/night. We, however, booked through RPI (90 days in advance; the park knew we were coming) and our rate was 13.75/night. When we checked in we were told "RPI people get dry camping but we've upgraded you to water and power". Our assigned site was in the undeveloped area among piles of sand, gravel and debris from trees. It was dusty and bumpy; in any other campground this would be the "maintenance yard". We had a post with a 15 amp duplex and a water faucet. The circuit breaker was in a locked shed. After two nights we were permitted to move to one of two 30 amp posts (still in the gravel pit.) A day later - after we (and others) phoned RPI - we were moved to a "real RV site". This park sells memberships touting "RPI access to great parks all over Canada and the USA" while treating incoming RPI guests as unwanted visitors. Our experience with RPI has been consistently good; this park left a bad taste in our mouths (and that is very unfair to RPI and to all other membership park systems in the "RPI family".) Setting up three times in one week is not our idea of "a good park". We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The key word is Resort! This is a great place and worth the money. One warning, the Wi-Fi is only available in the rec. center but once in that building there is lots to do and a very comfortable place to use your computer. The rec. center has a library with comfortable leather chairs, pool tables, an indoor and outdoor pool, weight room and pool tables. Extremely friendly staff (they want to sell you a time share). Great cable TV and each site has a little cabana with your own propane grill (they provide the propane and a wire brush). We loved this place and might join their organization just to stay at parks like this in our travels. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The "resort" is located just north of the main intersection between Highway 93 and Highway 95. The sites are reasonable size and it caters primarily to families with children since it has a recreation center that includes a pool (didn't use) as well as a playground and tennis courts from what I could see. The resort has basic cable and the Wi-Fi was unstable and unusable and only available in the recreation center. The resort was well cared for and very clean. We stayed here because we needed to overnight and wanted to check this one out. They had space, which surprised us, but the big surprise was the price; $68 for one night. We de-rated this resort from a 9 to a 6 to reflect the basic cable and the lack of Wi-Fi available at your site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well kept park. Has a nice covered deck and bbq at each site. Nice shady sites. Lots of space between sites although the pull in part is narrow. My 45' Class A fit right up to the deck. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Over all, everything is very nice and accommodating. Has nice villa decks, and they supply BBQ with propane. An awesome place to stay, but some pull through sites are a bit too small. Also they make you pay to use the ping-pong, pool, foose-ball, etc. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here through RPI. The sites seemed tight until we backed in and was greeted by wood decks, a patio and a gas barbecue. We stayed in what they called the overflow, but all were RPI type campers. The laundry, pool and exercise areas not to mention the restrooms were very nice and well cared for. Not much supervision of the pool area, but most behaved themselves. We loved this park and will definitely be back We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground had only opened a few days before we got here and still required some tidying up. Some of the sites are not very long at all, and placing a medium sized trailer on them could be a challenge. The same can be said for the access to some of the sites due to their layout. We found the Wi-Fi slow. I only counted two sets of washrooms, one of which required either a long walk round via the roads or climbing a set of steep steps from the stream side sites. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The access to the site is via a steep road. The hydro points added to the challenge of placing the rig on the site, as it is co close it can make opening the slide out difficult. We would use this site again for short stays. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We decided to stay at this RV Resort because we wanted 50 amps for our electric-hungry rig and the only other park in the area offered 30 amps. This is a time-share park with about 50% of the sites individually owned (some on the rental pool and some not) and 50% of the sites owned by Management. Each site has a covered wooden cabana with a picnic table, large deck and a full-sized BBQ with propane tank on the patio. We had asked for one of their largest sites because of our big rig with four slides. The site we were given had three fir trees opposite the cabana and we couldn’t fit our rig into the site unless we backed toward the ridge onto the grass. Then, we couldn’t fully open our door without hitting the wooden cabana roof, which hangs over the deck. Because we were on the grass, at 5 a.m. the sprinkler came on and every 10 seconds hit the rig with great force. As soon as the office opened we requested a different site and were very pleased with the change. The CEO personally came to talk with us and explain how they “mis-stepped” in assigning our site and apologized. The park has tall firs, which provide shade for most sites. There was no extra charge for BBQ (that was last year, management said) and the indoor pool, spa, workout room were spotless. It was an easy 90-minute drive East to Banff and Lake Louise, a must to see. While we were here a caravan of 22 rigs headed for Alaska stopped and the staff said they always make this a two-day stay-over because of the beauty here. A steak fry including drinks and dessert was included one night for a $15 charge (US $). We hiked the mountain trails, visited the Radium Hot Pools and dined at a wonderful Austrian restaurant, all within 2 miles of the park. Although our stay began negatively, with our reassignment we really enjoyed the park and the area and will return another year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 2 weeks - RPI affiliate - $10.00 each night plus $2.00 for hydro. Well worth it. Will most definitely return. It is an extremely nice park ~ with grassy sites, a cabana with a picnic table and barbecue at each site. There is a recreation center with 2 pools (one indoor, one outdoor), a hot tub, showers, washrooms, library, game room, family room with T.V., adult lounge with T.V. There is 2 laundry facilities and washrooms with free hot showers. Cable at each site. It was a clean, spacious park, and well maintained. Reason for an 8 rating is that the Wi-Fi is weak and it is something that we depend on, due to working on the road. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at Radium Valley Vacation Resort over the Easter Break. Lots of things for the kids to do, indoor pool, games room, 2 playgrounds, etc. The staff also held an Easter Egg hunt complete with prizes and ice cream. Some of the sites are located overlooking a ravine. Beautiful views but would be unsuitable for families with small children. No fire pits at sites. There is a communal one near the recreation center although it hadn't been cleaned up for use since last fall and there was no firewood around. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at Radium Valley Vacation Resort for 4 nights, and chose it because it was an RPI Park. It was a very nice park. Each site had a grassy area, a pavilion with a picnic table and barbecue (you pay an additional $1/day, minimum $5, for propane). There was a recreation center with 2 pools (one indoor, one outdoor), a hot tub, showers, washrooms, book exchange, library, game rooms with table games, family room with TV, adult lounge with TV, etc. They also had laundry and washrooms with free hot showers. There is cable TV at each site as well. It was a clean, spacious park, and well maintained. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The facilities are excellent; immaculate clean club house with interior swimming pool. Wireless internet coverage is poor at outer edges of park. You will be hit for a $29 surcharge regardless of how long you stay (even for one night) for the LP gas to the bar-b-que grill that is furnished for you (space A8) whether you want it or not. They do not tell you that up front. I gave it a 5 only because of the surprise $29 "got you" before you check out. I would NOT use that facility again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This review is for what they call 'partial hookup sites'. These are not, repeat not sites. It is an area with some gravel spread about, a couple of 20 amp outlets and water. Tree branches have not been trimmed to a level that allows a class A or 5th wheel to pass by. $35 bucks for this so called site. Per earlier review, the newer sites nearby are tight, real tight and $52 a night. It is a resort, and if you do get a larger site and have kids, you should be ok. This is not a place to spend a night when passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a member campground with CtoC and RPI affiliates. Non members are allowed and the rate is $42-47 night. Wonderful campground with all the amenities. Indoor/outdoor pool. Beautiful clubhouse w/racquet ball courts, library, TV & family TV rooms and arcade. Not much missing here! (Except WIFI) Amazing scenery. Most sites have their own 'cabana' and propane BBQ. They have added some sites along the one side of the campground that aren't that great, small & no cabana or a very tiny one. They do have full hookups at these sites as well. We have always lucked out and had a large cabana site with the exception of this past visit. It was quite busy though so that may have been the reason. We will definitely be camping there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our 2nd stay at this campground, the first was 10 years ago. Was great then and still the same. They have been improving the sites and added 12 premium full hookup sites with 50 amp service. Lovely campground in the canyon with a crystal clear creek running through the centre of the campground. We had a pull through site, was 30 feet between our 5th wheel and the next RV. Sites are gravel pads, concrete block picnic areas, have many trees and fire pits - wood can be purchased at the office. Nice clean laundry facilities. Love this location, 4kms from Radium Hot Springs. Is a must stop if you are in the area - would recommend reserving. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Absolutely beautiful grounds and layout. Extremely well cared for and a pleasure to stay. Sinclair creek runs through the campground, lined with rock and crossed by several car and pedestrian bridges. Walking trail to the hot springs 3km but outstanding beauty as you walk past Sinclair falls. We loved it here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park in a beautiful location. Many sites along the stream running through the park. Great restrooms and showers. Laundry was nice, but had some machines broken. Took longer to do the laundry. The sites are larger than they looked driving in, and the grounds are very well maintained. Very bad cable signals, no digital, WiFi was just OK. Being in the bottom of a small canyon, I did not try the antenna. Would stay here again. Adjacent to nice town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is NOT a resort as it doesn't have ANY amenities. It IS a nice RV park, with lots of grass, trees, and a stream. It must be old as the sites were small pads and had very small sever drains. Sites are so tight that everyone had to park the pick-up in front of rig, thus looking down the street you saw hardly anything but trucks parked. It was clean and well manicured landscaping and quiet at night. The young lady in office was very nice, but an older one was sort of snippy. If I went back to the area, I would stay at another park with bigger and more private sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful with grassy level sites, major cable and fast free Wi-Fi. Was a little intimidating coming down the road but well worth it. We had a 36' rig and tow vehicle and had no problems. Could be tight turns for really big rigs. Treed, gorgeous and quiet: loved it. Limited on pull throughs so if that is what you want, reservations would be a great idea. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is attractive, clean and friendly. The sites are adequate. The restrooms are clean but inadequate. The water pressure is good, but there is only one shower temperature--too hot for this camper. There are no places to sit anywhere in the restroom, so I guess we are expected to balance on one foot while taking off and putting on shoes. There are not enough hooks for clothing and towel. There is only one inadequate hot air blower for the entire bathroom. We paid over $180 for four nights--a price that should buy better facilities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with a creek running through it but a couple of things you need to know if you have a big rig. You will need to unhook your tow to make it to your site, even if you have a pull through. Also, there are only a handful of 50 amps and all are back ins. On the other hand, the WiFi was great and the park is beautiful. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful campsite. All sites have a huge grassy area, fire pit and picnic table. We had a pull through which was good for one night. Washrooms were spotless and it was very quiet at night. Age of campers, mostly retirees. They really don't allow the party crowd in so sleeping is no problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place has been a family run operation for about 50 years. The owners have done a great job keeping up with the times. It is always clean and neat. The full timer area is segregated and it is kept tidy as well. Lots to do in the area if you like the outdoors. No shopping near other than groceries and fuel. We love the creek that runs through the park. This place is always quiet and peaceful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A bit overpriced and it seemed very crowded. The campers next to us put there screened room over on to our site and parked their truck "right there" so it was very hard to back in. It got worse when he tried to help us! Very steep hill going down into the campsite. It really is in a canyon or gully, whichever you prefer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We enjoyed our one night stay in a quiet tent site on the creek. We reserved a site, but our plans changed slightly, and we asked if we could push our reservation forward one night. Our request was accommodated. Nice, dry firewood was available for $7 at the office. WI-FI didn't work at our site, but worked in the rest room. There was a path to the small, pleasant town of Radium Springs, but it was an uphill mosquito haven. We camped here in a Tent.
All staff at this resort are very customer focused. We have to compliment on in particular who helped us with our RV awning! Staff also lent us a Cable TV cord. We stayed at site #15 for two nights. The bathrooms are very clean here. The sites are quite large and everyone seems friendly. A segment of this park is designated for permanent residents. They have use of the swimming pool. At the end of the residential area there is a steep path through the woods to Sinclair Falls and to Radium HotSprings itself. It is a difficult climb. This park has a lot of mosquitos right now (end of July). Bring repellant and a gazebo. We recommend this RV resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Site quality varied depending on where you were placed. Our site on the creek was great. Site boundaries were a little hard to figure out. When we were there, green caterpillars were falling from the trees and were all over everything. Freaked out the wife. Apparently this happens every 10 years or so. Would go back if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Had we known we were going to find Paradise, we would have booked a much longer stay. Our site was right next to this amazing little creek that gurgled continuously putting you in a total relaxed state. The sites were well groomed, there were flowers everywhere and everything just looked perfect. It's nestled at the bottom of this small valley as if in its own little world. We would definitely go back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground had only opened a few days before we got here and still required some tidying up. Some of the sites are not very long at all and placing a medium sized trailer on them could be a challenge. The same can be said for the access to some of the sites due to their layout.

Park was very clean and quiet. Lots of room in between most sites. Be careful when picking if you have a big rig as some are of the shorter variety. Overall a great place to stay. We will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great RV park. We really enjoyed our time here. The park is well laid out, not cookie cutter, but with a lot of character. The sites are all pretty large with many of them backing right onto the fast moving stream that runs through the grounds. Kids love the stream to wade into, although it is very cold. The services work great and the staff is hardworking and courteous. We will stay here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean and beautiful campground. We had paid the additional $2.00 night fee for cable and it didn't work (no refund either). We will definitely visit here again - highly recommended! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
