5 Parks near Hixon, British Columbia
Jul 2016 - $30.00
Nightly rate is in CAD. Campground was 10 miles south of PG on Rte 97. Sites were gravel, mostly level (some tree roots in site) wide enough and long enough for my 38' 5th wheel plus tow vehicle.
Truck & RV wash was $1 loony for 4 minutes of water and soap.
Except for road noise (which diminished after 10) it was quite. About half of the sites were long-term.
Power, water and sewer worked well and were well placed.
Interior roads were wide enough for easy access and departure. - daviputnam

This place is old and shows its age. The sites are not terrible, but not great either. Some leveling needed. It's right near the highway with considerable road noise especially if you are closer to the road than further back in the pull-thru sites (which of course cost more than the back ins) The washrooms are old, but clean. The shower stalls are miniscule. If you want to leave conditioner in your hair for a while you almost need to stand outside of the stall to get out of the flow of the water. Good water pressure and plenty of hot water though. Each shower has its own private room with changing area and a chair. That area is large, just the actual shower that is tiny. The laundry room has four of each washers & dryers. The lady at the office told me that each machine was $2 (you need loonies, which she will sell you). She must not know her laundry room very well, though, because when I went to use the dryers, two of the smaller ones only took quarters (which, of course, I did not have!). Made do with the two larger ones. Two of the washers are larger than the other two but both the same price. There is no table in the room so you have to use the top of one of the machines to fold your stuff. There is at least a beat up old (but comfortable) chair in the room. Lots of mosquitoes too at the moment! The wi-fi was useless, and cell service was on the weak side. At $22 USD (w/Good Sam), it's relatively reasonable, but I think if I come through again I would pay a bit more and stay in a nicer place. - Pdxjoanne

The grounds are very clean and it is a small park that is a distance from town where all the stores & restaurants are located. There is a small nature walk that is good to walk a dog but it isn't a long walk. The WIFI was spotty at best. There were 5 tv channels only but we were able to get US news channel out of Seattle, Canadian news channel out of Vancouver. - petpeople

Small, very well maintained park. Very friendly owner/manager. Nice hiking trail. Able to pan for gold on the creek. Sites were level. Lovely setting right on the creek. Very nice laundry facility. Camped here in a pickup camper and would definitely stay here again. - Sharlou

We loved this place. Forested area between campsites, huge sites, privacy. Very clean and net place!!! Free hot shower is priceless. But we love the best the friendly owners!!! There is always a smile for you in the shop. Very good birding site. (Flycatchers, nuthatches, warblers in the forest. Osprey above the river and some shorebird at the shore.) - hakristi

One of the best campgrounds we have found. People are friendly and helpful. The park is nicely laid out along a river (you can pan for gold here) and has a walking trail. There is grass between you and your neighbor and room to spread out. All spots have picnic tables and a fire pit. Their free WiFi works well. No antenna TV but we didn't miss it. It is about 1-1/2 hours to drive to Barkerville which is a great reconstructed gold rush city to spend a day in. I would rate this a 10+ and will be passing along the information to our friends. - rolling homeless

This park is kinda different to review. It has been under development for about four years on 145 acres of land. There are 11 50-amp sites and the rest are 30 amp. Sites are nicely spaced with trees between each site. Gravel pull-throughs are loooong and level. Hookups are well thought out with two water connections and two sewer connections, so no mater where your hook ups are located, no need for extensions. Sites are oriented such that satellite reception to the SE is available. We had no trouble in site one and all the other sites look like the same orientation. There are no other amenities here such as washrooms, etc. yet but it has the potential of being a premier park in the future. The owner is one friendly dude and committed to making your stay enjoyable. Make this your stop in the Prince George area. - ddrichter

This is a basic no-frills park. You first notice the "office" is a pop up cover with plastic table and camp chairs; self-register there. The sites are roomy with back-ins along one road and large pull-throughs along another. The owner will visit eventually as he lives nearby; he is enthusiastic and helpful. This was a perfect stop for an overnight the campground well graveled and full of wildflowers and songbirds. No showers or restrooms just the porta-potties but we went self contained and had no need. Trash collected every night at eight. We loved the size and layout of the park, sites were spacious. Will always return when passing this way. As others have said this is a work in progress. Loved it. - Easy go

While amenities may be lacking here for some, the size of the site and cleanliness of the park was just fine for me. The owner is super nice and friendly. The park is still a work in process and I think with time it will be a gem. WiFi was difficult trying to connect at "the Office" however I understand expansion is in the works. Easy access to/from Hwy 97. Short drive to Prince George. Great for an overnight stay. Lots of wildflowers throughout the park this time of year. My one piece of input is that if you are not traveling with a cell phone, you need to find the owner to get the WiFi password. If you have a cell phone, it is a simple process contacting the owner who may not be on site. Very prompt response! I would stay here again. - Twispette

Place seemed run down. Sites were covered with dandelions gone to seed. Someone not picking up after their dog. Very close to highway so noisy. Water in showers just warm. No soap or towels in restroom. - Darleen
