The arrival was very good with a friendly young lady, she was very helpful. The park looked good and clean and close to the Trans Canada Hyw. The whole park is well maintained, so the toilets were good and clean.

Aan komst was zeer goed met een vriendelijke jonge dame, ze was zeer behulpzaam. Het park zag er goed en schoon uit en dicht bij de Trans Canada Hyw. Het hele park is goed onderhouden, zo ook de toiletten waren goed en schoon. We camped at Kootenay River RV Park (Formerly Kootenay River RV Kampground) in a Motorhome.

Eclectic layout. Looks like it used to be a drive-in theater. Grounds are beautifully kept. The park is on the river and there is river access. There are a few back in sites that back up to the river. Because of the length of our rig we were given one of 3 pull through sites. Lovely, lush grass all around our rig but most sites are gravel pads with grass. Adult only park, very quiet. We camped at Kootenay River RV Park (Formerly Kootenay River RV Kampground) in a Motorhome.

Easy access to Castlegar for groceries. Close to major highways but not noisy. Lions Head pub was close by and had a good selection of craft beers. There is also a golf course across the highway.

This is well maintained and as an adult only park it is quite quiet within the park. However the Hwy is close and the train can be heard. The park is just above the river and on a hot day it is a good place to cool off. The grass is well maintained as are the washrooms and showers. The sprinkler system could be set up better as it sprays on the sides of the RVs leaving water spots. The hook up are good and positioned well. The staff are pleasant and work hard. The only funny thing is that the quoted weekly rate is really "stay seven days and get two for free". We stayed nine days so had to pay full rate for the last two days. Other parks would have prorated for the final two days. We camped at Kootenay River RV Park (Formerly Kootenay River RV Kampground) in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful little park in a beautiful setting. Grounds are immaculately landscaped, facilities are super clean. Staff are very friendly, helpful, & accommodating. Excellent value at $36/night Cdn. Cable tv with about 50 channels, free wifi with good connection. Laundry room has 2 of each machine, $2/load. We highly recommend this park. Would be a good idea to call in advance, though. It's small & likely fills quickly. We camped at Kootenay River RV Park (Formerly Kootenay River RV Kampground) in a Motorhome.

We had a back-in river front site, booked for 2 nights. (When we phoned a day in advance to book a site, we weren't sure if we would stay 1 or 2 nights. We decided to stay for 2, we liked it so much!) The site was long enough for our 39 ft motorhome. We parked the tow vehicle across the street, which was close by. This is an adult only park with a 24/7 quiet time...we liked that!

This adult only park was full on a Thursday night in September, good thing we had reservations. The friendly staff showed us to our riverside site and helped get us parked. The items are gravel pad with grass. Pedestals are new, our site had 15 & 30 service. Cable TV included. Wifi is great, no problem with email & web (not suitable for streaming movies). The park is on the site of an old drive-in movie theatre and the screen is still standing. Grounds and facilities are very well kept. Quiet park even though it was full. Excellent experience. We camped at Kootenay River RV Park (Formerly Kootenay River RV Kampground) in a Motorhome.

The park road is fairly narrow and two way traffic not possible near the entrance. Exiting back onto street a challenge as well. Beyond that this is an excellent park. Friendly and courteous staff who checked us in quickly and escorted/guided us into our river view site. The site was a good crushed gravel site with grass between adjacent sites. A table was included at the site. No fire ring, but there was a group fire pit site nearby. There appeared to be many seasonal or permanent sites. While the river view sites were back-ins, there were some overnight pull-through sites as well. Well landscaped and maintained park. Cable TV had around 50 channels and they were clear. Wi-Fi was strong at time of use and no problem browsing or for e-mail. There was an old drive-in theatre screen on site that marked the park's earlier use. We would definitely stay at this park if in the area again. We camped at Kootenay River RV Park (Formerly Kootenay River RV Kampground) in a Motorhome.

Nearby is the old Brilliant Bridge and Veregin Memorial Park. Castlegar, about 3 miles south, is the closest location for gas and groceries.

This is a hidden gem as far as RV Parks in BC go. Family run, built on an old Drive In Movie site. Still,has the old screen and the office is in the original projection/confectionary building. Good fishing spot a short walk away on the Koutenay River. Castlegar is a nice little city with lots to see and do in the area. Casino just up the road. Lots of great places to eat. Full hook up with 50A power which is rare. VERY Friendly. We camped at Kootenay River RV Park (Formerly Kootenay River RV Kampground) in a Motorhome.
