We have stayed here many times as we went to Forte Steele and we enjoy it every time. Our kids always love the playground, the pool, and the shade provided by the many trees. It is so close to Forte Steele which we are so happy about. We are looking forward to returning! Again! We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This family run campground had grassed sites with gravel parking pads. Easy access for pull-thrus. An Esso gas bar with bulk propane was also available, along with a fully stocked small store. WiFi was very strong at our site. Excellent water pressure. Across the street from Fort Steele National Historic Village. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campsite was not worth the $42.00 overnight. The gravel roads were very narrow and overgrown with grass and weeds and had huge boulders right at a crucial turn. We had to return to the office because the first site would not accommodate our tow vehicle. The staff was not well informed about the length of sites and Motor Homes with tow vehicles. The lanes for the sites were not marked and we had to go around in order to locate the alternate site. A waste of half an hour. The grassy/gravel sites were very close. When we hooked up the water and electric, the sewer access was near the end of our tow vehicle a good 20 feet back. I would not recommend this park for the price charged and the annoying setup. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

I made a reservation and arrived but was made to wait (by the manager) for service until all the store/gas customers were served first.(even though I was waiting first). When I returned to pay later, I was sternly chastised by the "asst. manager". He was very nasty to me. P.S. I have been barred. I will NEVER return and I will never recommend this place either. If you are camping they treat you poorly. I rate this less than 1. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park has an excellent location across from Fort Steele historic site and within view of the Rockies. We visited the accordion festival in Kimberley while in the area. We have previously stayed at this park and had good experiences. I found two male staff members were rude and aggressive towards clientele. Perhaps they are having a difficult summer due to the weather. I had reserved this location several months in advance and was assigned a lot and a price. When I asked about a substantial change in price, I was told that the staff member who quoted the price and location no longer worked here. "The owner reserves the right to change prices." One male employee tried to intimidate me when I politely asked about the price change. Bathrooms were dirty and shower outlets did not work properly or at all. Paper towels were not replaced in the bathrooms. My impression is that the owners are absentee at another site in Tofino, B.C. and several management employees are not client focused. I recommend other parks in the area considering this resort is expensive. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pros: Good clean location, well stocked convenience store, friendly staff, good size pool for the kids, and a short walk to the Fort. Cons: Was a bit pricey, but not much else close but the Fort. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

In 12 years of RVing and staying in nearly 160 private parks, some very nice resorts, this was the most expensive place we have ever stayed. I had an email that said the price was $34 but got the same story as someone else. Price can change without notice sort of thing. From the owner / manager. Then there was a $6 fee for a one night only stay. Then the tax to get to the over $48. Site was nothing special. We certainly would not return here. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good staff. Well stocked general store. Lots of shade if you want it with open spaces if you need a satellite signal. Very clean grassy sites with good access. WiFi is basically non-existant except at the office. Great natural surroundings. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nightly rate is the "pay for 6, get the 7th night free" rate (regular rate is $41/night). Our stay was during the off season, so very quiet. On average, we were one of about 6 RVers in the park. Lots of grass, sites are mostly grass with some gravel, owners have horses, donkeys and emus near park. We stayed in a pull-through site which was fairly level, easy in and out with our 40' rig. We loved our stay here, peaceful with beautiful mountain views. During the busy season, it may be a little tight in the park, but the roads are wide with easy turns. Be sure to hang onto your receipt, as their computer booking system doesn't seem to be overly reliable. We'd definitely stay here again, very good experience.

Grassy sites and generally a very quiet park. Park includes a gas station and a good sized general store: so it is a good place to stock up. Easy in and out sites. Would stay here again. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a great campground.  Do not confuse with Fort Steele Campground to the south end of town, much smaller and inferior.  Several people went to the wrong campground by mistake. Very nice store, gas station, pool. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park has clean washrooms, a nice pool and is close to a historic town and gas station. But there are barely any trees when in big rig stalls, and the sites are close together. Located beside an emu and alpaca farm. It's over priced and has weird rules like, you can't put out an area rug, and you have to park your truck in a specified area. (?)

This is a nice park with grass sites and gravel drives. There are some shaded sites. Most of the park does get shaded until in the afternoon as the sun goes down. This was a good place to stop on our way out of Canada and back to the US. The price was good and this was with a discount. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park was only so so. We stayed for 3 nights while visiting the area. The Wi-Fi service was really flaky and very slow. Laundry facilities were old and not very clean. The campsites were OK however some of the picnic tables were not placed well on the sites (Concrete tables could not move). At the time of year we stayed there was few choices, we are sure there is probably better parks to stay at if one was visiting earlier in the year.

Signage to campground is OK. There is a large area to park and register. Office staff were efficient but not that friendly. Gravel access roads to sites are a little narrow and could do with some maintenance. Sites are gravel pull-throughs with a narrow strip of grass. Full hook-up but the sewer not in easy position for easy hook-up. It has a fairly open aspect. Sites were narrow particularly if the campground had been full. We camped at Fort Steele Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.
