Nice little park, very well kept up and clean - Some pull through and some back in sites, separate area for tenters. Close to down town core and activities. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is right in the city of Merritt and it's a good place to stop over and fill up on supplies etc. 30amp full hookups. Level sites. The wifi was decent if you're right by the office but does not extend through the park. The grounds are kept clean and they have really put a lot of effort into flowers and decorations and that really makes it a cute little park. The sites are grassy and roomy. There is some shade. The bathrooms and showers are very clean. There is a park across the street where you can walk the dogs. Only 1 static OTA channel. T mobile was 4g and strong without a booster. Data speeds were about 15d/l. Att had strong 3G. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice stop over park. Location is excellent, easy access. Gravel roads, has pull throughs. Stayed here before. Only downside this trip was grass needed cutting. Will stay here again. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pride in ownership. Owners were a pleasure to deal with. Campground was small but sites were nice enough. Washrooms were a little older but very very clean. Would recommend. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Large sites, pleasant surroundings. Easy walking distance from the centre of the town. Walking trail along the river across the street. No laundry but there is a large facility close by in the town. Price was $29 Cdn. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Brambles Bakery and Coffee Shop is highly recommended. Small town with most services makes an easy stopover for a night or two.

We often stop here on our way home at the Coast. Friendly people and a close walk to town. We like to walk our dogs across the street along the river. Strong and reliable WiFi and spacious sites. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a municipal park with Merritt's town limits run by a contractor. The person I dealt with was excellent - friendly, helpful and accommodating. The park was an oasis of green in a burnt landscape and was clean and well maintained. We were able to get shade on a hot day and had a quiet, spacious site. The rv park is fairly basic, but it was clear that upgrades are ongoing. While Merritt is not a tourist town, downtown was a short walk. It is an excellent value and I would return again. The only real negative was the noise from a nearby mill, loud and continuous. We camped at Claybanks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The rv park is the only logical choice for a visit to Merritt itself and also a good option if passing through the area. Note that the major shopping is on the other side of town, near the eastern exit to Merritt. Stop there before arriving if you have groceries to get.

We only spent overnight but a nice park, I believe it's run by the town.

It's next to the river but access is fenced off, not sure why.

Site number was a guess, it was a pull thru near the back of the park.

What a pleasant surprise. Love this place. I had no way to try and make a reservation than to email and I got a reply right away. The camp manager was just as nice in person. Wish I could mention her name, but she starts your stay off so nicely. The grounds are nice. Lots of grass and the restrooms are clean, light and bright. Hard to improve on much here. Great place!

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 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.
