6 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

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

We just completed a trip from Washington state to Alaska and back and this was the best RV park we stayed at the entire trip. In fact we stayed both going up and coming back we liked it so well. Sites are all very spacious and level with well maintained lawn between all sites. There is a big rugged picnic table for each site. Park is above the golf course with nice views overlooking the North Thompson river valley. It is about a quarter mile off and above the highway so noise is not a problem. There are train tracks across the river, probably a mile away, and very few trains so also not a problem. Showers are free and very large and well maintained. Internet was the best we had the entire trip. If you can book ahead, site #8 is the primo site. We will be staying here again! - dwightr8

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

No sewer here but good water and power. The 50 amp service did not have a breaker on the post and only a central breaker. Our site was long and level but our friends were parked next to us and had to use boards along with auto levelers for their MH. We enjoyed the night we spent here and the only negative was the laundry. There was only 1 washer and 1 dryer in a small shack with no chair to sit on. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here again if we were in the area. - BandPS

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

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
