3 Parks near Grand Forks, British Columbia
May 2015 - $27.00
Self registration when we arrived. Saw only one park employee later in the evening. Campground part of a bigger city park that has a senior's activity centre. Park roads and sites good gravel. Only a couple sites have any shade. Privacy fences between most sites. Our site (#7) was a back-in and had a bit of shade. It had a picnic table in good condition. There are some pull-through sites available. All utilities worked fine. No cable TV and didn't find any off the air TV either. Wi-Fi connection was strong and good enough for Skype calls. Easy walk to the river. We would stay here again if in the area. - Onemoretrail

This park has been upgraded since 2009 and now is a very pleasant stay. They have dividers between sites and full service hookups. No TV but there is free Wi-Fi from the Rotary Club. The only down side for our week stay was the weather was extremely hot, arrived in 42 C and stayed about 38 C all week. Across the park one can cool off by plunging into the Kettle River. One down side is the numerous deer that are aggressive since its fawning season. Walking our dog, the deer actually were stalking us, thus we gave them a wide berth. Grand Forks downtown is one block away, people were very friendly, easy to shop and they had a farmers market on Tuesday and Friday. This is a nice clean town. If you want a little more beach, you can drive up the road to Christina Lake for swimming if you have kiddies. - rwberg

Great over nighter. Quiet, clean, easy access, level sites. This is a well planned park. Playground and huge field for pets. As a bonus, a herd of deer frequents often in the evening. - BC Wanderer

This campground was AMAZING! It just recently came under new management and everyone is so nice and friendly around the office! The new management team made sure we had a very pleasant time, and is still working very hard to improve many aspects of the campground to fit 2015 standards. We were supposed to only stay for the weekend, but loved it so much we stayed for a week. We came in July which is wonderful with the warm Kettle River right next to our campsite and the beautiful sandy beaches. There are about 3 different beaches and great fishing. We went tubing down the river which was very enjoyable as a family. You can rent tubes from the office and games like bocce, horseshoes, etc. and play in the large front field. We bought ice cream and other treats that were in the office and had a great campfire/wiener roast at night with some friends we met who were tenting in the campsite next to us. The washrooms are all brand new, and the laundromat/library was great to have. While I waited for my wash to be done, I got to read some Ernest Hemingway! My favourite! My 2 youngest loved the large playground and hated to have to leave it when it was time to depart, and my 17 year-old loved playing basketball. The office provided him with a basketball and with the hoop that's already set-up, he was out there everyday practicing. My husband and I especially loved the peace we found here. There is hardly any traffic on the highway, especially at night, and so we set up our hammock in the shade and enjoyed the sounds of the birds and the river. We miss this place already! We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Riviera for making our time in the Kootenays so special! We look forward to returning! - Brooke Thatons

The staff were friendly and gave us a shaded pull-in site by the river.
The Wi-Fi didn't work at our site. Finally got the drain cover off after much struggle. Pipe was broken but we did get the tanks drained. The park rules indicated to boil the water, but host said if was an old form and not necessary. The interior roads were dusty and our site was 100 ft from the highway so too noisy to sit outside.
Won't stay there again. - Go often

Park website is outdated and does not reflect current conditions. Photos are misleading, and park is currently somewhat run down. Sites are very close together and located roughly 50' from a major highway. Traffic noise and dust can be irritating. River sites are along a high bank, without railing, which is dangerous for small children and pets. The playground is in very poor condition and slightly hazardous. Access to the "sandy beach" is awkward. The majority of the park is filled with 'full timers' leaving a narrow strip, along the highway for campers. The hosts are very pleasant, and price is good for an overnight stay. - LE rollin'

Open all year, although only electric hook up in the winter -- but it is difficult to find an RV park open all year around here. Friendly staff, showers, laundry and bathrooms available. Play area. Not much space between pitches, but they do allow campfires which is very rare! Right on the Kettle River, easy walk to town (Grand Forks), and access to the Trans Canada trail. - Salt & Pepper Adventures
