Park has very few sites available for travelers. Most sites taken up by "permanent campers." Appears that only the visiting campers abide by the pet rules, keeping their dogs on a leash, and cleaning up after them. We had to clean our site of dog waste from big dogs before we could allow our dog out of the RV! No one was available at the office to collect or answer questions. Had to fill out our own pay form (no receipt) and use a drop box. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The best thing about this park was it's relation to the Canada border. We stayed here to make it convenient to go back and forth to Canada, and it worked for that. There is also a nice city sports park that connects to it that is well maintained and a good place to walk your pets. It's a good thing, too, because many of the dogs that belong to the many permanent residents are pits or pit mixes and not too friendly. The sites are gravel and grass, and you are mixed in with the permanent residents. I have never seen so much duct tape and blue tarps in one campground. We stayed for two days, and twice some of the permanent residents got into fist fights/ yelling/ cursing matches. It never felt safe or secure, and we never did see any management. One of the ram shackle trailers had a manager sign on it, but no one ever came around. You register with an envelope and drop it in a slot. And to top it off, the park is also surrounded by large lots of dairy cows. So the aroma of cow manure is a constant companion. I will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Self check-in with form/envelope. Went to back area where the lots were large pull throughs. Mountains and cornfields surround the park and the train horn blows by day. Nighttime was very quiet. Manager came by on our arrival and was friendly and accommodating. When asked when check-out time was he said "no hurry, anytime" & other parks have been at our door at 11am reminding us even when they wasn't many in their park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from Rt 9 and close to the border crossing. We left our rig here to go across the border on day trips. Nice long wide 50 amp sites. It took 2 days to check in. There was never anyone in the office. It was self serve. Small laundry room but no other amenities. The rigs at the front of the park seems to be long term. The interior of the park was large and wide open spaces. We could use our Dish, aircard and Verizon without any interference. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Unfortunately this park is losing its appeal. There are several full timers that do not take care of their units which ruin the ambience. Recently the wonderful caretaker manager passed away. The new managers are unable to keep up the park. They are also very rude and trying to reserve is almost impossible. Its a real shame because this park was a gem. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This quaint little park is located 3 miles from the B.C - Washington border. Sumas is a very small town, but convenient to the larger cities for shopping etc. The park is designed well and kept very clean and tidy. Lots of shade spots too. There is no playground but children are made welcome. You can walk to town, grocery store and 3 good restaurants as well as bank with ATM, laundry, post office, gas stations, video rental, duty free.
