11 RV Parks near Heffley Creek, British Columbia
Jul 2008 - $25.00
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

The park has 2 areas. One area is constructed similar to a provincial park with defined space between sites, the other is adjacent to the lake and is less defined. All sites have tables and a fire pit as well as access to an outhouse. Recreation sites in BC are meant to be rustic! A caretaker is on site during the summer season. The lake is restricted to those fishing with a child under 16 so is not usually very busy. - lrp374

Self registration, although a sign said an attendant would come around later (which didn't happen in our case). Access road and main park loop road paved, interior roads gravel and individual sites gravel back-ins. Some sites (including ours) well laid out, while some sites had steep access to the pads. Our site was large enough for a big rig and included a picnic table and fire ring. The table was the standard cedar which had not been maintained in a while. No OTA TV and satellite TV would have been impossible due to the trees. No Wi-Fi or cell phone service either. A pay phone down near the beach was not working, so don't know how one would be able to get hold of anyone in an emergency. There was a beach trail nearby, but it was fairly steep and not maintained. We probably would not bother staying here again if in the area. - Onemoretrail

Really nice provincial park 18 km outside of Kamloops. There is a nice beach area and a large day use area if you just want a picnic. The campsites are large and have mature trees. The trees have been cleared out well so that it's easy to back into the campsites. Loops aren't necessarily one-way, so you may have to turn around and go through from the opposite direction so that you can easily back in once you choose a site. The beach is a long walk from the campground and you may want to drive to it. There is plenty of parking down there, however. There is a dump station here, but it is a $5.00 (CAN) additional charge to use it, even if you camp here. No cell phone (Canada Bell) or WiFi. We did get local Kamloops radio stations, but no television. - Bobbi1948

We arrived late and found no space, but the wardens were really friendly and helpful and directed us to the overflow campground. The overflow campground was right next to the lake and had public toilets. The site was level and quiet. There were some good hiking trails directly from the campground. I'd recommend climbing to the top of Gibraltar rock! - lizzien

Nice location. No sewer hookups so if you are there for a few days will have to use sani dump, which they have. Only 1 washer and dryer for the entire park. With a few upgrades this would be a great park. - Donny Mackelprang

I had business in the area again, and because I found it convenient before, I decided to give it another whirl. I was pleasantly surprised. The operators have improved the landscaping considerably. They have planted grass, laid sod and added pea gravel to most of the sites. All of the facilities worked well including the Wifi. There is still very little to do right at the park. The river was very high when I was there so access to the bank was very limited. There is a walking trail (atop a levee) but there is signage that says it's private property so use or not at your own risk. As before, we had no problem paying with a credit card. The operators were friendly and check in went quick and easy. If you are looking for a short term stay, and don't need sewer, this park is now a lot more acceptable. We paid $37.00 per night including tax and will now feel we would return. - BC Wanderer

Check in was quick and efficient. I had no problem paying with a credit card. Clear directions were given for the site and the easiest way to park. A code for the WiFi and rest rooms was included with the site map. This park was chosen because of it's proximity to downtown. It is not close walking distance but it is only a 5 - 10 minute drive. There is nothing of interest to a traveler that is within reasonable walking distance except the river, which has a rocky beach. The sites are narrow and a number are long enough to support a 45er. Services are very limited. 30 amp, water, WiFi, and a picnic table only. No sewer (there is a sani dump), no cable (2 over the air local stations available). I could not log on to their Internet but didn't try very hard as I have my own service. Some of the sites looked like they might be more level than others but none were really bad. The surface consists of sparse river rock over a clay base. I'm thinking muddy if it ever rained there. This is a place to park only. Good for overnight or if you have an interest in the Kamloops area. I don't think $35.00 is a fair price for what is offered. I will check out another park when visiting again. - BC Wanderer

This park is under new ownership/management as of Fall 2015. The spots can be a little tight to get into and the pull thru are narrow. This is an older park. The bathroom trailer was brought in about 5 years ago. The bathrooms need keys. It was fairly clean but could have used cleaning a little more often. The shower tap is up high so little kids will need an adult along to help adjust the water. But this is okay because it means the showers have hot water for those of us that like hot showers. They did have a laundry room, it looked clean. I didn't use it. They kept the RV park well plowed while we were there. They have cable TV. They have sewage and water that works in the winter. Most spots are 30amp several 50 amp. The said they have hopes of redoing the power in the spring. There are several good trails right out of the park for walking. - Full-time Canadian RVer

On the 'very good' side of campgrounds that are stop overs while on the road. Tiny bit of road and train noise. Very helpful staff/owners. We were in Kamloops area for a wedding and ended up staying 5 days. As others have mentioned, the laundry room is small but we took a chair to sit and read, so no biggie. We were in the spots above the washroom/shower/laundry house so we had electric and sewer and water.
There is a mix of sites, some full services, some primitive.
The high point each day was taking the grand kids to feed the chickens at the north end of the campground. there was plenty for the kids to do, playground, sandbox, climbing equipment, play house, etc.
I would stay again.
Take a carpet/mat because the sites are in the trees and you can track a lot of sticks and gravel into your trailer unless you can leave your shoes outside. (This is normal for us but we see a lot of campers not prepared and they get frustrated. We wouldn't want to stay in a pavement and concrete site but some people expect a site like that, I think.)
I would suggest to the owner to install another washer and dryer if only to earn more income from the laundry.
The dump station was free for everyone.
The serviced sites are set up so that the trailers will be back to back so every other site will have a down hill (west) view or a up hill (east) view.
I think the down hill west view was better. - jxoco

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

Before we arrived, I was called 2 times because they lost our reservation information. When we arrived we had to wait 20 minutes to confirm our reservation and pay, as our name was not on the site list. We were called to register again when we were out for the evening, even though we had already done so. Desire the fact that we had booked weeks in advance, we were given a very unpreferred site, although, when we complained, we got one slightly better. Preference is obviously given to those who are seasonal. We found the stafff to be very disorganized - both in regards to reservations and to service at the site. - Laurie Houle

We chose this park because it was off the beaten path but still close enough to the city if we needed anything. There was only one other full service park open this time of year in Kamloops and it is right next to the Trans Canada. We were not interested in the traffic noise. This park is quiet. The services provided worked reasonably well except the WiFi. It may as well not exist. There is no cable but we were able to pick up a few channels over the air. The sites are way too small and close. Some sites have the services on the wrong side. It is populated by a lot of full timers and it shows. Many of the sites were very cluttered and junky. I classify most residents as red necks. They pretty much left us alone and mingled only with each other (which was very fine with us). Plenty of large dogs including Pit Bulls but all well behaved and leashed. There is not much to offer in Kamloops for full service parks but we will pass this one by the next time we are here. We feel that we did not receive good value for our dollar. We paid $30.00 Cdn per night inc Tax for off season. Oh, the very small stream was running while we were there and we thought it to be pleasant. - BC Wanderer

As others have mentioned, this park is in a ravine. Sites are reasonably level with small grass area and gravel parking spot. "Clear mountain stream" is small creek. It was dry by the time we left (3 days).
Washrooms were okay, staff was great. Site was too close to neighbours - no privacy.
Appear to be a lot of long-term campers - one Class A had a plywood skirt!
If I was to visit Kamloops again, I would go elsewhere. Good only for overnight stop. - DCM/JMB

Had a gravel, pull through spot. It took one 2" board to level side to side. There were trees to the east of the site a picnic table and cable TV. There was pretty constant noise from Highway 1. AT&T worked well. The WI-FI was excellent. A good spot for a one or two night stay. - travelcouple

Park was very clean and the owner met us and led us to our spot. After setting up we went and paid. It was quiet and the view was incredible. Nightly fee is in Canadian money. - rolling homeless

Level gravel sites with small grass area and picnic table, a bit close together though. Good for an overnight or two, wildlife park next door. - flexitdriver
Oct 2010 - $30.00
This park was very convenient for our trip to see the nearby Adams River sockeye return. There's some permanent residents but they are friendly. The hosts are superb. There may be Internet access but we never bothered trying. The Trans Canada and the railway are nearby but the noise didn't bother us. The campground itself was very quiet. There's a nice big grassy area for pets. Some of the sites are a bit sloped, so make sure you have something to put under your jacks. We would stay here again. - Fish dude
