Excellent park with large level sites - gravel driveways and grass. One or two trees per site.

Excellent staff. Washrooms spotless. Laundry svces available but did not see laundry "room".

Only "slight" downside is proximity to lumber mill and its noise. More like white noise than noise that might keep you awake. Sounded likemill was only running 2 shifts so overnight (and weekend) was quiet.

We would definitely stay here again.

Nightly rate is in Cdn funds. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Merritt is a nice little town with a Walmart, Starbucks, Cdn Tire, and 2 grocery stores.

"Downtown" is nice area to walk (coffee shops) whereas big boxstores are by Hwy 5 north exit.

Dont miss Brambles Bakery & Coffee Shop downtown.

Well maintained, spacious sites with good grass and some shade. Friendly and helpful operators. WIFI near the office, didn't work in our site. Nice walking trail and river adjacent to the park. The rate was $32CDN, or about $27US. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The park is about half a mile from the downtown section of Merritt, all facilities available there, typical for a smaller town. It's not a destination in its own right, but convenient to National Parks (Revelstoke and Glacier, among others).

This is a very nice park, lots of grassy areas between sites. Each site is graveled and level. Water pressure is 100 so a reducer is necessary. Washrooms are very clean and large with 2 showers each. Management is very welcoming and friendly. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park. Well maintained with plenty of grsssy areas. Fairly wide spaces. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful, allowing me to use their phone when our cellphone was dead. Has a walking trail nearby. Did not have a laundry. It has everything I need except the laundry. Excellent wifi. Has speed bumps which I do not like. It is also near the lumber mill which is somewhat noisy, but was not so bad we could not sleep. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Motorhome.

We like this Municipal park. Sites are big enough for motorhomes. Wi-Fi is excellent. Washrooms are extremely clean and nice. Slight noise from lumbermill down the road but not bothersome. Well maintained with beautiful flowers and a garden. Safe. Would definitely return. Recommended by park to eat at Coldwater Hotel. It was excellent and had big portions. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small but nice campsite. It is a Municipal campground with walking distance to downtown. Lady checking us in was very friendly. Across the road from the campground is a nice walking trail that eventually leads to a dog park. One thing is that very close a 7X24 lumber mill is operational. You do get a wee bit of noise from this mill. We stayed 3 nights and had a good time in Merritt. Easy place to ride your bicycle in. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our very first night in a (rented) RV, so didn't know what to expect. We were made very welcome and enjoyed our 1 night at Claybanks. Yes, there was some noise (apparently all night) from the lumber works, but it didn't cause us a problem. Didn't go into Merritt itself as this was just a stopover. Washrooms were clean, and I would recommend this as a stopover, but can't comment on its suitability for a longer stay. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Claybanks RV Park, is owned by the city of Merritt. The staff was friendly and the well laid-out sites were not to close to each other. The park is also big-rig friendly. There is lots of grass but the trees need to mature: it can be very hot in Merritt in the summer months. The park is close to downtown, and they have free Wi-Fi. This is a nice place to stay for a night or for several days if you wish to explore this area. We stayed 3 nights and would stay there again: $27 per night with full services.

Way too many speed bumps in this park. Almost one for every site! Very high water pressure. Bring your pressure reducer! No CATV and No local TV stations. Sites closely spaced. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice walking trail along river across the street from the park. We would stay here again, but only as a stopover. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Our truck broke down in Merritt and we were stranded for 18 days. Fortunately for us we stayed at Claybanks! We can not say enough about the hosts at this nice park. There cheerfulness and generosity made our stay enjoyable. As the hosts live on site they tend to the park as an extension of their back yard. If your in Merritt and need a site for a night or two you can't go wrong with Claybanks. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
