Wonderful place on way to Alaska. Long and spacious pull throughs. Back ins are easy to negotiate. Quiet. New Wi Fi just installed. Very fast! Folks are friendly here. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground has recently been taken over by a wonderful couple who truly want you to have a great camping experience at their park. There are a lot of flower beds that are beautiful, nice landscaping, it's surrounded by mature trees, and the gravel roads are in good condition. Our site was quite long, wide and level. The free Wifi was alright. They had 8 washrooms (4 women & 4 men) each with a toilet, sink and shower. All were imaculate...I've never seen such nice washrooms. We were told that golf is nearby. As in other reviews, there is a train nearby but it's down in the valley and not that loud. The park is just off the main highway but is still pretty quiet. Walk to the back of the property. There are a couple of chairs back there to sit and enjoy a great view of the valley.Our Dish satellite worked fine and Verizon reception was good. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed 2 nites at Shady Rest RV Park. The new owner was friendly and helpful. Our site was easily accessible with our 38ft 5the wheel. The park was clean and well maintained. The only negative is the train whistle in the early morning hours. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pleasant Valley Resaurant was a good place for breakfast and lunch! Lots of locals! Very friendly wait staff.

The little town of Houston is not far and there lots of activities available. The Visitor's Center is well run and informative. Restaurants and fuel are nearby.

Price posted is for a long pull through with W/S/30 amp in USD. Our space was not shaded, and just in front of the office/shower building......which used to be the projection house of a drive in! The WiFi was awesome, the private bathrooms were clean and bright, 4 for each gender with locking doors. The owner/hosts were great and helped with suggestions for good stops heading north on the Cassiar. Paved roads and cement pads would be nice, but this is BC, not Orlando, FLA! We will stop here for sure on our way south! We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The only thing lacking for us is TV cable hookup. I did not even look at the laundry room so I cannot comment on that. The restrooms and showers were very clean. We were in a site near the road and there was some noise from that. The place has some really beautiful flowers and landscaping and each site has a fire pit and picnic table. We were in a shaded spot. The value for the price was very good, considering just down the road it is only $5 less at a Provincial park with no hookups, showers, or flush toilets. Don't get me wrong, we frequently stay in state and provincial parks, but I think $25 is a bit high for such places. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

After traveling to Northern BC for 3 weeks, this is one of the best campgrounds we came across. The owners were friendly and take great pride in their park. We had a nice pull through. The grounds are well kept up. We definitely recommend travellers staying at this park and would stay here again. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very; nice family run RV park. Owners live onsite and take pride in their park which shows in the facilities and landscape. Easy access, gravel interior roads and sites. Pull-through and back in sites. Was able to use Dish network at the park. Will stay here again on our return trip from Alaska. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
