Stayed two nights. Overall a nice campground. Sites were a little cramped: my neighbour was less than 4 feet off the edge of my awning. Campground had dated but acceptable washrooms and did have a camp kitchen where those camping with tents could go and wash dishes. Campground was pretty close to the CP rail main line, we didn't mind as we like that type of noise but it did not disrupt our sleep. Owners were very helpful and willing to pass on local knowledge. Campground is 2.5 miles from the town centre - we rode our bikes in. If I could give half points would rate this campsite as a 6.5. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

All the sites are crammed together. My site was literally 100 meters from a train track switch with a train every 20-40 minutes; worst sleep of my life. They charge extra for showers and to use the washing machines and dryers. I asked for 10 dollars back from my 25 I paid initially and was told to take my business elsewhere. I felt 15 dollars for the night was more reasonable, and they did not. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Tent.

The nights are fairly quiet. The days in this park are filled with the noise from the constant trains running on the tracks close by and from the road which runs next to the park. We made our reservation for two nights in January (our stay was at the end of July), and we were not encouraged by the less than cordial welcome by the owners. We were then assigned to a site that did not have a fire pit and this was disheartening when I was with the understanding that all of the sites had a picnic table AND a fire ring (we definitely enjoy a relaxing fire in the evening). For the price paid, I did not feel that it was worth the money (although we did have cable TV and Wi-Fi). The sites are close to each other and do not have screening between them. After visiting the area, I would recommend that you research Canada's provincial parks instead. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were not going to spend more than a day in Revelstoke, but the campground and the town were so appealing that stayed for 5. The owners are extremely helpful--telling us all there was to do in Revelstoke and in all ways being very generous with their time. Our site was level, grassy and there was sufficient space between our site and our neighbors' to give a sense of privacy. Lamplighter is a 25 minute walk from downtown Revelstoke and the town is worth it--with lots of good places to eat and shop. This was truly a surprise in terms of the park and the town. We'd definitely come here again. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate was for a back-in full hookup site. Pull-throughs available for a few dollars more. No discounts available at this campground. The site was a grass back-in that was fairly level, but had many tree roots exposed over the first half. No privacy between sites. Hookups worked fine. Excellent cable TV. Wi-Fi had good coverage, but when there was traffic I got bumped many times. Some train noise, but not too bothersome. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Motorhome.

Very friendly owners, near the Columbia River, 25 minutes walk to downtown Revelstoke and very close to Revelstoke Nat'l park. Nice biking on level grounds around town. Park is very well maintained. No noise of highway but train nearby, did not bother. WiFi oké, cable good. Big pull throughs for big rigs on grass. Good for a stopover or a few days. No special rates. If we are near we will sure come back. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The husband and wife team who run this place are model hosts. They always have time for everyone. Early arrivals and late departures can be accommodated. The campground is small, and when full, can look overcrowded. But it is kept very clean and tidy. It has a very friendly atmosphere. There is a basic swing set, horse shoe pit, and volley ball net. It is a short walk to the river and a nice park. Downtown Revelstoke has live music every night through the summer and it is a 25 minute walk from the camp ground. All being said it is a great little place. We have been before and will be back. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The couple who run this place are extremely nice and helpful. They take good care of the campground. The campground is surrounded by trees and gives a very homey atmosphere. There are pleasant walks nearby. Revelstoke ranks as one of our favorite stops and this campground as one of our favorites. The trains did not bother us at all. We would definitely stay here again.

Found this one on our way through and were happy with it. Although there was no separation between sites, they were large enough with well maintained grass through out. The playground, however, was very sad (disappointed the kids). Hostess was very pleasant as well and the entire campground appeared very well maintained even though it was very busy. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Staff are pleasant and helpful. Only complaints are that the sites are alternating, meaning one unit can drive in, the next one has to back in as services are in between (we had site 3). We had to use an extension cord to reach the post. Signs at the entrance to the park are partially blocked by trees, so a bit hard to see. Sites are spacious. Park is clean and quiet. Wi-Fi is good. Park is close to town, easy cycling distance. We would come here again. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Trains squealing around the bend is about the worst thing I can say, all else is just wonderful. The trains are no big deal. Staff are super people and work very, very hard to make and keep this place up at a solid 9+ rating. Been there twice and will return, highly recommend it.

A very nice and quiet park. Only issue were the trains going near the campground. No horns, but you could hear them, it didn't bother us. A very diverse and friendly crowd was here during our stay. The sites are grass, very nice but a little narrow. It was ok for our three day stay, and there were plenty of walking opportunities nearby. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park. Nothing fancy. Has good WiFi, clean washrooms and nice owners. I don't know if it's a great spot for a long stay, but for a couple nights it's a good spot. We would stay again and probably will on our return trip. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed one night, electrical 30 amp supply very week with park full and air conditioners running. Could use some dust control of better yet paving. Will stay again, handy for our needs. We camped at Lamplighter Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
