The best thing this park has going for it are the large campsites, very spacious, very good picnic table, fire ring, and relatively level site for trailer. Very easy to maneuver any size trailer (we have a 35ft fifth wheel). There are no hook ups and no cell phone reception at the site. There are a number of drinking water taps throughout the park as well as pit toilets. There are 3 buildings each with 1 flush toilet and about 5 shower stalls. These are your typical park facilities - bare concrete and brick shower stalls that have seen better days. At least the shower water is warm but you have to constantly push a button that gives you about 10 secs of water. This park is situated by Allouette lake - a clear, clean and refreshing large lake with plenty of beach area (some sand, lots of rocks). The park operators drove by very frequently but pretty much left you alone. Good to know there is security around all the time. If you like true wilderness camping (with no hook ups) and large private sites this is the place to be. We camped at Golden Ears Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a gem for families with young children. The park is in giant cedar trees and has lots of trails and 'wilderness' space for them to explore. The layout is spacious and traffic for such a large park is quite low. The double sites are great for small groups and spacious enough for an RV or 2 and several tents. The lake is cold except later in the year and is really not the main attraction. We plan on staying again next year. We camped at Golden Ears Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park within one hour of Vancouver. Large campsites. One drawback was there was no power or water. We stayed here 4 nights so we needed to use a generator. They only allow 2 hours in am & 2 hours in pm for generator use. We would stay there again. We camped at Golden Ears Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I am pleased to report that the management of these campgrounds has improved dramatically since the current operator took over. North Beach is our favorite of the 3 campgrounds in this park. It is cheaper at $21 per night, and much closer to the beach. Sites are huge, and quite private. The campground was very peaceful. The beach itself is superb; but we were here during a hot spell. This is a rain forest, so be prepared for wet weather anytime. Also, due to the close proximity to Vancouver, check-in lineups are frequent. Reservations are a must; sites are usually snapped up 3 months in advance. There are a couple of small concessions in the park, but items like fuel and groceries are 20km away so it is best to be self contained. There is little or no cell phone reception in the campsite itself, but we got a good signal down at the beach. We camped at Golden Ears Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Have camped here several times with friends and always had fun. We stayed in a double site which was a perfect size for our large group. They have good bathrooms with hot water and decent facilities for a provincial campground and ample outhouses for those late night visits. There are great hiking paths near by with Alloutte Lake a short hike away. We camped at Golden Ears Provincial Park in a Tent.

Beautiful setting, and lots of good hiking trails. The lake is nice also. The reason for the "3" is the following. First, we were at the beach and the police showed up and went through everyone's coolers, even families with children. Sort of ruined the afternoon. (Ironically, while this was going on, back at the campsite someone stole our hitch cover and all of our neighbors food and beverages.) It seems as if hooligans have been a problem at this park. Secondly, the site next to ours had at least 20 people in it, and they were loud till 3AM. A mention of this to a park staffer in the morning brought a shrug of shoulders. Thirdly, people coming up to visit us, even though we had told staff they were coming, had to wait for 45 minutes before they gave up and left. Finally, the firewood was soaking wet. I guess this park is so popular since it's easily accessible from Vancouver, but we won't stay here again. We camped at Golden Ears Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here on a Sunday night after likely a busy peak season summer weekend and it really showed. The garbage bins were over flowing (and there were a lot of them). I am sure it looked 100% better once the garbage truck comes by but we were still subject to the over flowing garbage while we were here. There was also empty beer cans and bags of garbage that were strewn in various places on the road side. I am sure those have been here for a long time because they looked very sun faded. I am very surprised the camp operators have not made an effort to clean it up. Lastly our camp site really smelled like sewage on one end. At first I thought it was coming from my black tank but as it turned out, just below the slope of our pad, there was a rather large mound of human waste. A complaint to the camp operator brought one cleaner person who did the best they could but a refusal from the camp operator to give a partial refund. Excellent park with amazing water access and world class hiking. It's too bad that the campground is so badly abused. We camped at Golden Ears Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

A beautiful but chilly park with coolish sites shaded heavy by trees. There is a downhill walk to the beach on a gravel path. We camped at Golden Ears Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.
