6 RV Parks near Barriere, British Columbia
Sep 2009 - $27.00
The RV park only has 7 spaces and two of them were occupied with park models. The sites were all pea gravel and mostly level but were very narrow. The parking area for the RV was about 10 feet wide and the adjacent grassy area of our site was about 8 feet. We have a rig with slideouts on both sides and on one side, we were overlapping the neighbour's grass and on the other side, our slideout was over top of our picnic table. When the neighbours opened their vehicle doors, they would hit our lawn chairs set on our grassy area. There was a tree at each site that interfered with the awning so we couldn't put it out at all. The hookups were in the middle of the site which is not convenient for rigs with power at the rear end. The restrooms were clean but everyone was charged extra if they wanted to use them at all. Not sure how they monitored that when the sites were full. The location was between the highway and a railway track that had 15 trains going by each day during both the day and night. A whole lot of shaking going on at times. The website advertised a vineyard but all we saw were a few scrawny and anemic vines that looked like they never grew a grape. - two2 happy rvers

The price is in Canadian $ before tax. No discount unless staying seven nights, then one night is free. The RV Park - not really a resort - is located on an elevated, level platform of ground above the golf club. Check-in is at the golf club and was fast. We had a gravel pull-thru site but fairly narrow and about 60' long. Very tight for our 40' 5er with opposing slides and 23' tow vehicle. I had to park away from my rig because of the placement of the trailer on the site - optimized for the utility post and being able to slot it in between the slid-outs. Our site had 20, 30 & 50 amp power (not all have 50amp), water & sewer. Water was a good pressure and the sewer was a ground level towards the rear of the site. Voltage read a steady 120. Wi-Fi is included in the cost of staying and we had a good, strong connection. Between the sites is a neatly mowed strip of grass about 12' wide and a gravel patio area with a heavy picnic table. The bathrooms were clean and tidy. For the men, one very large stall - very easy to get a wheelchair in and a grab bar for assistance. One very large shower stall and two hand sinks. There is a laundry - one washer and one dryer. $2 each (loonies). Also an outside kitchen prep area at the end of the washhouse building. Communal fire pit - no fire pits at sites. The railroad track is about 1km away but the rumble of the trains is very noticeable during the quiet of the night. There is no children's play area or dog walking section. I could not get any OTA TV signals but this is Canada and in the Rookies. Sites 8 - 11 look fairly short and may only fit an RV of about 20 - 25' with tow vehicle. All sites are south facing so pretty much full sun exposure all day with only small trees for shade. What is shown as overflow parking on their site map is now half a dozen electric and water only sites and a dump station.
The RV host was very pleasant and always busy trimming the grass or pruning the trees. - Hutch333id

RV park is mainly for golfers, but as I'm not one, I did some exploring with my ADV bike in the area. I would have given a 10 overall, but there is a bit of dust raised by golfers in carts coming and going golfing and I am used to more elbow room. The sites are normal size, but it's a pretty new RV park and the trees are young and will be nicer in a few years. - ElnaNorman

This is a very nice little RV park. We were assigned a 50 amp pull through spot but were not asked what we wanted. We learned later that the back in 30 amp spots were $10 less and all we needed, our mistake for not asking. Upon arriving you need to park and walk to the club house to register, a bit strange but not bad. The RV spots are up the hill from this parking lot, a bit of a climb but again not bad. The campground was very neat and tidy and had a great view. The pull through spot was a bit narrow and I think the back ins are a bit wider. - cachencouple

On the 'very good' side of campgrounds that are stop overs while on the road. Tiny bit of road and train noise. Very helpful staff/owners. We were in Kamloops area for a wedding and ended up staying 5 days. As others have mentioned, the laundry room is small but we took a chair to sit and read, so no biggie. We were in the spots above the washroom/shower/laundry house so we had electric and sewer and water.
There is a mix of sites, some full services, some primitive.
The high point each day was taking the grand kids to feed the chickens at the north end of the campground. there was plenty for the kids to do, playground, sandbox, climbing equipment, play house, etc.
I would stay again.
Take a carpet/mat because the sites are in the trees and you can track a lot of sticks and gravel into your trailer unless you can leave your shoes outside. (This is normal for us but we see a lot of campers not prepared and they get frustrated. We wouldn't want to stay in a pavement and concrete site but some people expect a site like that, I think.)
I would suggest to the owner to install another washer and dryer if only to earn more income from the laundry.
The dump station was free for everyone.
The serviced sites are set up so that the trailers will be back to back so every other site will have a down hill (west) view or a up hill (east) view.
I think the down hill west view was better. - jxoco

The people are very friendly and helpful. There is a small above ground pool only satisfactory for children. The grounds are immaculate and nicely landscaped in the forest. Highway noise a tad distracting at times. - Vicki Seller

We used this park for a 2 night stay in the Kamloops area. It got better ratings from the parks immediately in Kamloops and from what we can tell the higher marks are right on. There is some train noise but nothing bothersome - and no horns that I can remember. The highway noise is maybe a bit more bothersome but not enough to deter us from going again. The owners are super friendly and very helpful. they get the highest marks one can give. The sites are OK. Room for the biggest rig and privacy enough for the tenters. - TRDAWG

Probably one one of the most well kept campgrounds I have ever been to. The washrooms were absolutely amazing and comfortable. There are life size wood carvings through out the parts: very cool. The fishing was very slow, but expected in the middle of summer. The office/store offers many items, even collectibles. I would have rated this park a 10 out of 10 except for the resort hosts. Not really friendly, seemed to be more of a bother to them than a business. I left with a cold feeling from this paradise. Most likely because after spending 2 nights at full rate without sewer hookups, they wanted $15.00 to use their sani-station even though they advertise it as included. There are a number of regulars and seasonal sites, we found the people in these spots had little regard for us weekenders - they had no problem walking through our site with their barking unleashed dogs on their way to visit their friends in the other sites. One stopped to piddle on our dog's sleep rug. - chaperon

This is a very basic RV Park right on the banks of the North Thompson River about 10 miles south of Clearwater (2 miles north of Little Fort) On PH-5. There is no sewer or dump station available. If your Motorhome or Trailer is longer than about 30-34 feet you will have a hard time maneuvering in the parking area. The main draw here is you are camped right on the water with a great view of the river and an open field across the river, where wildlife sometimes comes down to the river. - A-S_Travels

Beautiful facility, well off the beaten path. Immaculately kept. Friendly and informative staff at check-in. We would definitely stay here again. - Smuchi

Great park - beautiful setting.
Definitely off the beaten path: about 20 miles from the major highway. 70% compressed dirt/gravel, about 30% of it was paved albeit bumpy. The unimproved road was fine. Travelling in 45' MH road was plenty wide for 2 wide including encountering a big truck.
The sites are huge! Long pull throughs with 30 amps. It wasn't warm enough to need AC. Plenty of room to park car and spread out.
Theres a nice group area, restaurant at the lake and amenities on the lake. Free Canoes, boats and other playground area for kids well away from the camping area.
Theres about 25 chalets that are also for rent. The campground is about a 5 minute walk from the lake. But its a scenic lit path.
If you're in a big rig, suggest you come thru Clearwater as the entry from the south is even longer dirt path. Took about 30 minutes. There is a bridge and RR tracks but both very improved so no worry about bottoming out on RR tracks in this very rural setting, and no problem with height on the bridge. Also, all trees on dirt road were well away from the road
Even got Direct Satellite here, but didn't use it often as the scenery was so great. Would come back again for sure. - Big Rigger

This is the finest park we've ever stayed in. It is primarily an up-scale Resort, with 28 log cabins situated on a private lake in deep woodlands near Clearwater, BC. They also have a top-notch RV park, with ten looong paved pull-throughs and eight big gravel back-ins. All sites are dead-level, surrounded by expansive perfect lawns and a few trees. All roads are paved, and all sites are full-service. The one pair of bathroom are great, with free hot showers. Amenities include a single restaurant ($$$), free boat and canoe usage, kids' playground, fishing, covered picnic areas, self-serve BBQs, and hiking trails. No cell service, but the free WiFi signal is strong everywhere (although the satellite Internet connection can be slow). Views of the surrounding mountains are also free. Now the only downside: the location is 13 miles from town, half of it rough pavement, and half graded dirt. It is also up a couple thousand feet of steep climbing, which might heat up your transmission if you haul a big rig. I wouldn't recommend this as an overnight stop if you are traveling through, but if you plan to stay put and enjoy the wonderful amenities in this quiet, beautifully-maintained park, then I highly recommend it. - Doug Atterbury
