2 Parks near Dease Lake, British Columbia
Sep 2015 - $20.00
Nothing fancy but nice level pull-through sites with full hookups. Utilities worked well and the Wi-Fi was good. Easy in and out of the campground and easy to get around in. The site we had was just long enough for our 40' motorhome and Jeep. We would stay here again. - dandg

Poor wifi/nonexistent when away from office. No Cable TV. Owner very grumpy and bothered. Neighbor's 6 dog were a nuisance and bayed early in the morning and roamed the park bothering guests that were walking there dogs. Overall the park itself wasn't bad but the proprietor was not friendly. - Fuzzybutt

Did not use much because of an accident and did not get in till 1 AM. Sites are short for a big rig. Sites somewhat level. Power good. Did not try Wi-Fi. Lots of mosquitoes. Would stop again if in the area. - neilontheroad

Be forwarned - Wilderness Camping means NO SERVICES. No hook ups, no dump, just cleared sites and pit toilets. When I asked about the advertised free W-Fi, was advised "Wi-Fi is down" (but my computer showed their locked link was up). They offer laundry services for $11 (including soap)- they run a portable generator to get power for you to wash a load.
Dirt road from highway leads down towards lake. very steep - if it was wet or you had a big, heavy rig, you might have issues. Tree covered sites relatively level, some are very tight, others wide. Picnic table and fire rings at sites. There is a boat ramp and dirt dock if you bring a boat or want to go fishing.
It was beautiful and quiet in the trees with the wind coming across the lake. We made do with what we had, but if I'm paying for dry camping with an RV, at minimum I want public toilets/showers, a dump station, and potable water like you'd find at a provincial or state park, otherwise it's the same as boondocking in a parking lot.
Price is $25/night unless you have Passport America, when it's $15. Firewood is available at $10 bundle (May '16). - yesmar

Winding road down off of Hwy 37 to get to campground. Only one pull-through, which we got - a little tight but doable. Wi-Fi was okay. Owner knocked on door at 1030 PM and told us to turn off our generator! Got up early, left and drove up to a rest stop where we stopped, turned on the generator and made our coffee! Would probably not stay there again as $23 seems a lot to pay for Wi-Fi and not be able to use your generator. - Retired FL CSM

This is a commercial campground along the Cassiar Highway about 7 miles north of the town of Dease Lake. There is short, steep dirt road leading down to the campground located along the shore above Dease Lake. There are no hookups of any kind and there is no potable water nor is there a dump station (despite what it says in some guide books). There are pit toilets. There is Wi-Fi as long as the campground generator is on, which seems to be most of the day. You can get the signal at the first few sites near the office and it is reasonably fast. Our Verizon phone did not have a signal and there were too many trees for a satellite signal. A few of the sites have a view of the lake, but most sites have views that are blocked by trees. The sites are reasonably well separated and there is some vegetation to provide a bit of privacy. There are picnic tables and a fire ring at the sites and there is firewood sold. The owner lives on site and is very nice and personable. Although it might be possible, it would be tight for a big rig. The price is a bit steep for no amenities except WiFi. Next time, we would probably bypass this campground and either camp at a Provincial Park or a commercial park with some hookups. We had to pay $10 for dumping and water at a campground in Dease Lake. At the same park, it would have cost $23 for a site with electric and water and dumping would have been free. It is difficult because the campground owner is so nice, but we would likely not stay here again. - TheJim
