Grassy field with marked sites. Manager courteous and efficient. Washrooms are old, in need of updating, but clean. Wi-Fi works well. OK for an overnight stop, but will try another place next time. - BillR

Nice camping on grassy sites. Sites are large, all pull-thru sites. Staff is super friendly. No shade. The problem is the electric. The park was half empty and the voltage was low. Only able to run one thing at a time and the voltage drops very low. We never ran an air conditioner. The park is aware of the problem, but there are no plans to upgrade it. - ken2560

Not a bad place to stay overnight. Had to stay here, only because Robert's Roost was full the first night of my stay, (and Legion Beach is just too gross to even consider). The staff is pleasant enough, the park itself just lacks anything at all to make it unique. Basically a field by the highway. The transport truck traffic noise is way too loud at night. The bathrooms were okay. I would overnight here again if I was unable to get a spot at Dragon Lake, however that is the only reason that I would. - californiafisher

The Cottonwood House Historic Site is located at km 26 on Highway 26 (to Barkerville). The Ranch offers Cabins and 10 RV sites located adjacent to the historic buildings. When driving towards Barkerville, take the second entrance road to the Roadhouse.
Posted rate is for an electric site. Dry sites are 20$. Admission to the roadhouse and a carriage barn is included. Interesting little tour and nice artifacts.
The sites are level and some can accommodate rigs up to 40' (total length). One site is pull-through, the others are back in. Two sites provide 30 amp, 2 sites only 15 amp, the others are dry. Water spigot and long hose at the washhouse in the middle of the RV-Sites.
Most sites are in the open, only a few have some shade. Nothing between sites to provide some privacy. However, since the place is almost unknown, there was only one other camper during our first stay and no one else during the second stay in August.
The whole place is very well looked after. The sites are raked and level. The restrooms and showers are modern and clean. Highway traffic is negligible and completely dies down at night. A few logging trucks in the early morning. Wi-Fi would make this place perfect but we will come back anyway. - TheSchweitzers

We stayed at this campsite twice this year. We enjoyed our time here very much. The campsite is very quite with no highway traffic noise or trains passing by. The owners are very friendly and the washrooms are clean. Has a beautiful lake front. - D. B.

The posted rate is for a W/E site including the Good Sam discount. There was a picnic table but no firepit. If you want a campfire you need to bring your own (needs to be an elevated one). However, fire bans are common during summer anyway. Site was level and shaded by trees which was nice. WiFi was very strong and fast. Now, why do we rate it so low then?
Well, we experienced it to be a very busy vacation camp. Pretty noisy from other campers activities well into the quiet hours. No privacy between sites (we could almost shake hands with the neighbors from our picnic table to theirs) and water pressure was so pathetic that pretty much everyone was using his water pump instead of the water hookup. This might be a nice place to stay outside the summer holidays but we will find a different place to stay when coming to Quesnel again. - TheSchweitzers

We were given site #41 close to Dragon Lake. Beautiful view of lake, but all gravel base - picnic table, but no grass or trees this close to lake. DW uses power wheelchair. Park definitely not wheelchair friendly - gravel too large - scooters (with larger tires) would probably be okay. No ramps to washroom complex.
Would stay here again but would opt for treed site - gravel pad, picnic table, grass, and trees. Also closer to washrooms/showers. - DCM/JMB

We've stayed in literally dozens of campgrounds and RV resorts across Canada and the US. If I had to choose the nicest resort we've ever been to, this one would be it - without question. We booked slightly ahead of the Labour Day weekend and expected to take what we could get, based on the short notice. We were VERY pleasantly surprised to find ourselves assigned to the largest RV site we've ever been in! We could have put our 40' motorhome, tow vehicle, and ANOTHER 40' motorhome into that single site! Besides being wide and spacious, we were an end site - so the grassy area with picnic table that was also part of our site was like having our own personal park! Walking paths, Dragon Lake just metres from our doorstep, and a secure gated beautifully kept resort. I could have moved in for the rest of my life. Cable (which we didn't use - we have a satellite dish), speedy Internet (which we did use), laundry, restrooms, water, sewer, 30 amp power. Friendly helpful staff. The lovely town of Quesnel about 5 - 10 minutes away. Groceries and a Walmart almost on the doorstep for convenience. And Barkerville (our primary objective) about an hour's drive away. This is the nicest RV resort (it's much too nice to call it a campground!) we've ever stayed in. I would highly recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again - and again and again and again! LOVED it! - Kelly S

This is a typical BC Provincial Park - large, well, spaced sites, very private and lots of trees/shade. There is a nice day use area with a sandy beach for swimming and boat launch. The showers are older and were free in 2015, so hot water was an issue. The ranger informed us that they are updating the showers for next season and there will be a charge, but this means the hot water should last longer. Quiet and away from the road. - gtogrl

There is no reason this provincial park should cost $23! The sites are designated 'lakeside' sites but none are on the lake. The lake, itself, is not even pretty. Most $18 P.P. parks are far nicer. I would not stay here again. - mockturtle

Very nice park all sites have plenty of room. The campground has two parts an upper part and a lower part down by the lake. We stayed in the upper part which does not have the dense trees and shaded as much as the lower part. The stay was nice, generator time is specified 9-11 and 5-8 in the evening which is adequate. Gates are locked at night so don't get caught out after 10:00 P:M or you will be walking in. We would stay here again. - monaco cruiser
