Were greeted as we were driving in, owner/manager was working on project near driveway so we didn't have to drive up to office and then search him out. He graciously advised rates and availability of site types and allowed us to drive around to decide on which site we'd like. Options were w/e back-in in trees or fhu pull-thus in open. We chose a back in. Note rate listed is converted to US, was 32 CN.
Campground roads are dirt. Pull-thus share utility posts which puts them close together on their hook up sides, but have large yards out their front doors. Most sites are utilitized by people working in the area, but we found the place quiet.
Our back in was narrow at the entrance but wide once in. Sites come with table and fire rings. Utilities are located at the front edge of the site, sometimes covered by shrubs so it takes a moment or two to find them. Our site was only a 15 amp plug (no problem for a truck camper); other sites offer 30 or 50 amps.
Playground for kids, decent laundry (3w/3d) and ok bathhouse. Wifi worked at our site as we were close to office. - yesmar

We ended up not staying here. This place is very tight, the spots are back to back so you share grass. It was very full. Dogs running around. The caretaker told me one price and when we got there changed her mind and went to charge way more. They do have ice cream in the store and lots of cute gifts. They do have propane fill, showers,and river access. - Full-time Canadian RVer

Our site was a not very level gravel pull-through. It could have used some more gravel to get it level. Noticed a few sites had been improved with more gravel, so maybe more sites will get the same in the future. As the park manager told me, 99% of the sites are occupied by workers. There were only a couple of available sites when we arrived. We had an end site so it had more room than most. It was open so satellite TV reception was excellent. No cable TV and no channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi was very slow and I finally gave up in frustration trying to get anything on the internet. The laundry had 3 or 4 washers and the same number of dryers. It cost $2.50 for wash and $2 for dry. They were clean and efficient, especially the dryers. I would stay here again if in the area. - Onemoretrail

Carson-Pegasus is a lovely provincial park. Site vary in size and can be difficult to come by on the weekend. The campground is above Lake McLeod. We were fortunate enough to find a site that had a view of the lake, albeit through the trees. We arrived on a Thurs. night and stayed two nights. We were pretty much alone the first night and most of Friday before the park began to fill. We were in a rustic site. No power or water, but potable water was close by if needed. Our gravel site was perfectly level and long enough that we could remain hooked up. Nice trails abound for walks. Max, our dog loved the place. We will definitely return here if we come this way again. - Airstreamers

Great place! Very big campground! Sites are private and not too close together. Close to two lakes. Bathrooms are relatively clean. Would definitely come back here again. - TracyD897

Well kept provincial park has lots of shaded sites. Situated between 2 lakes with fishing and boating. Some sites are close together and not very private, but most are great. Thirty amp sites are available. Power sites are 1st come 1st served, but non power sites can be reserved. Large spread out campground, so be sure you get the map when checking in or you could get lost. We enjoyed our stay and will return to camp again. - Squirrel66

Looking at last years's reviews I was skeptical about staying here, BUT the park is under new management and I can honestly say we were treated very well and had no problems whatsoever. The sites were a bit uneven, but other than that they were just fine. There are always rules at any park and the rules here were not overbearing or hard to follow. We were quite pleased and would stay there again. - Camping Happy

We stayed for 1 night, spacious site with W-P-S, site was mainly flat as were most. I called this a camp-ground with the services. NO Wifi. Will return if in the area. - wearecanadian

Wow, we were so grateful at the end of the long journey that day to find a place so friendly and helpful and clean where we could rest. These managers work hard to try their best to make this peaceful for everyone. The sites are large and well laid out and organized. The managers keep a watchful eye for others who have not registered in the park. If anyone experiences trouble there it is only because they have not followed the well laid out guidelines that are explained to you at registration. To stay there again...most definitely..it is the only place for peacefulness, cleanliness and safety???????? - Gripption

Casino is a short walk for a decent meal, travel centre has typical goods. Abundant wildlife in area for viewing. Park is still fairly new, and lanes and sites will be soft in spring break-up conditions. - darryl&rita
