We stayed one night here on our way back to the U.S. Easy access and a nearly level drive through site. Staff was friendly and helpful. #8 is a drive through, 30 AMP, W&S. RV parking is gravel, surround is grass with a picnic table. Wash and dryer, $3 and $2 for dry (28 minutes). If you have the time there is lots to do around the area. We would definitely return when in the area. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the cleanest, nicest looking campgrounds we have ever been to....this park is big rig friendly and our spot along with all the others are big and level......the owners are a friendly couple that are there to please you.....the individual restroom/showers are very nice and clean, a lot like home with a lot of hot water...our cell service was very good and their WiFi is some of the best we've had at a campground....only got 2 ota channels.....the flower arrangements around the campground makes for a very beautiful place to stay....take the walk to the back of the campground and enjoy the view of the valley below and in the evenings or at night listen for the trains, not very noisy just a pleasant sound in a peaceful place....will definitely stay again if in the area....

Smockey thank you for your review. When you buy a business and don’t give good service you won’t go very far.. if you do than people talk and the word gets around. That is our philoophy. We try our best to make your stay here as pleasant as possible. So if we make the park look nicer to upgrading our wifi to the best you’ve had at a Park,or help you with your RV than that is what we will do. Happy Camping

Friendly owners give this simple campground a good feel, and the WiFi was very reliable and refreshingly responsive. Gravel roads were easy to naviage. Our pull-thru site was very long, way more than enough for our 38' MH without unhooking our car. Water, sewer, and 30-amp electricity connections were convenient. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry. The price was right, and we considered it a very good value for what we paid. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Hi Mike thanks for staying with us and I hope you had a good trip when you left our park. And thanks for giving us a good review. I know telus is the only wifi provider where we are and they are soooo slow here. I wish we could get faster internet but that is what we have to deal with.oh and I wonder if you where here that one day that one camper hogged all the wifi with one of his electrical device. Unfortunately when this happened no one told me.. but than again if you where here when it was full it does slow down. I hope this experience does not stop you from coming back. Happy Camping

New owners just took over and they are really great. Love the park as you can choose sunny and open or treed and private. Nice grassy area at every site and lots of space. There is an area that you can take your dog off leash which is a bonus. I felt very safe and comfortable camping here by myself and everything is exceptionally clean. I made sure to stay here again on my way back. Beautiful flowers and a nice barbecue area if you want to use. Great wifi and everything was easy and lovely. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

We arrived mid afternoon and the park was only about 1/2 full. We were greeted with someone who acted like our long lost relative. We were treated very well, didn't get a discount but the cost to stay was lower than we expected with such a beautiful park. The sites were gravel and perfectly level. The management was very friendly and helpful. A very quiet and serene park. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Convenient for an overnight stay with restaurant, motel, post office and small store. However, most of the overnight spots are tightly packed but are long enough for most RVs and towed or tower. Good restaurant on site. Dump is convenient and well marked. Staff friendly and accommodating. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Motorhome.
