A nice, friendly, quiet overnight stop beside a babbling brook. We would stay here again. - Phil and Peggy

This is a heavily treed park with mostly permanent residents. The sites for overnighters are large. They are electric-only hookups (30 amp) which were located against the back wall, so you have to back up all the way to the rear of the site unless you carry and extension. No water hook up at the site. There are spigots located near the front of the site, which you could use to fill up your tank. Why they did not make the newer sites like a normal RV site putting power pedestal and water next to the site, I do not understand. The owner/manager was very friendly and accommodating. The Wi-Fi was good. This is a good RV park for a one night stopover. - JoeVinnie

This is our 2nd visit here and we still love it. Owner/Managers are extremely nice and have done lots of improvements since our last visit 2 years ago. Small wooded park with spacious sites, grassed and treed with firepits and picnic tables. Rustic with full service. WiFi is great. Pull through or back in sites. Will most definitely return again. - Richkost

We stayed here in off season so lots of room between campers. Sites sort of level. Close to Fort Steele. Nice treed sites. We would come here again. - Thedogsma

Our site was wide and all the hook-ups where well placed, although on some sites it required three lines to get to the sewer line. Not much gravel on the roads or the pads. The grass was dying and unattractive. The park is in a beautiful location and well located to see the area. There is only one trash area and for 3 days it was overflowing there was not enough dumpsters for a park of this size. The park looks like an old KOA that has seen much better days and need of some major TLC. - sjones

Large park, some trees, office is in the very clean nicely stocked gas station/convenience store. We missed the turn in as there were 3 rv's inline to check in and it looked like they were in line to buy fuel. If you miss it also, there is a paved turnaround just past the entry on the right side of the road. WIFI was not obtainable, but did not drive thru BC to check my email. Beautiful snow capped mountains, great golf courses in the area, according to our neighbor in the park. Easy in and out, (once you find the entrance) fairly open, good utilities. Stayed in a 42 ft with a towed, did not have to unhook. Would stay here again. - rmartin

Towing a 40' fifth wheel trailer, we had been assigned to site #69 and upon inspection found it to be big enough to take our rig and truck. This is an older campground with a variety of different sized sites so make sure you emphasize the size of your MH or trailer. Getting in to #69 wasn't the easiest of manoeuvres but after a couple of minutes we managed it. Although, because of the road layout, it did call for some quite sharp turning and a little bit of shunting back and forth. Not sure how easy that would have been if the pull through sites opposite been occupied. Our site had sewer, water, 30 & 50 amp power that all worked as required. The only thing I wish I had known when I made the reservation a few days earlier was that there was a 'boil water advisory' in affect. This necessitated us having to go back out and buy some bottled water for drinking and running through the coffee maker. The sites are spaced apart quite well and all appear to have mature trees and shrubs between, providing a sense of privacy. The sites come in all manner of lengths and widths but are all gravel based and include a fire pit and picnic table with bench seats. Some sites appear more level than others but #69 was nicely level for us. We had selected a river view site. What I didn't realize was that the river was about 80' below us down a pretty steep, almost sheer drop. If you are coming here with younger children you will need to be extra vigilant while they play outside. We noticed that many of the other sites in other parts of the campground also had very steep drop-offs at the back of the sites so be very cautious selecting a site. The bathrooms are a little dated but serviceable. We chose to use our own on-board facilities instead of the campground showers though. Being very early in the spring it was also very quiet with the only noise being either the river or the birds. Wi-fi is very limited. - Hutch333id

We stayed here on our way home from an Alaskan Caravan trip. We were lucky to find a campground on the Friday of Labor Day Weekend. This campground was heavily treed with dirt roads and dirt sites. Wifi only available at office or restrooms (we went to a pub in the town of Kimberley and got great free wifi). The office staff were very nice and informative about the area. Kimberley is a nice little town with a great produce stand and a couple of restaurants and bars. There are deer walking throughout the town and the campground. We would have liked to stay a few more days and explore the area but there were no sites available for the rest of the weekend. We would stay here again if ever in the area. - lyzzards

We thought the campground was well laid out though a few steepish hills may deter some.
Staff extremely helpful and professional.
Added attraction for us of a few deer wandering through.
Washrooms were in the process of being renovated but very clean, and unlike a lot of sites nowadays did not charge for the showers
As the campground is around 7 or 8kms out of town would suggest you do any shopping first if you only have a motorhome as transport.
We just stayed the one night but would definitely go again. - John Bee

We stayed here as a last resort. The campground is unkempt, what grass there is is dead, weeds everywhere. We were greeted by a fellow camper who was intoxicated and said the "manager" was away for the day and left him in charge but he "didn't know what was going on". The manager hid in her trailer and yelled at us out her window as soon as we brought our dog out..."dog are to be outside of park gates!!!" The water smells of sewer. The 30amp power kicks on and off frequently. Overall...a very unfriendly, dirty experience. - Rvbaby

We stayed here for a week while I was working, since it was the only place open in Cranbrook. The place is unattractive, with nothing to offer. Manager takes cash only & is very rude! Would not recommend it to anyone! - Love 2 RV
Nov 2011 - $35.00
Not good value for the price. Site was not cleared off: still had snow on it. A few longer term tenants. The campground is basic. It's fenced, has grass, no trees. Picnic tables at the sites. It's small and off the highway. No real appeal, but we were just passing through for the night. Staff was nice enough. - FTRVTC
Jul 2016 - $38.00
Only an overnight stay. Relatively clean and comfortable. Difficult to find. Be careful if using GPS as you might end up going down a narrow dead end. - Bill-1148

a hidden gem right in the middle of town. it is a city owned park leased by a very nice couple. the park was spotless all the time we were there ( 6 days) our site was level with parking for our car , well shaded and grass.
the only negative i could add is they have high water pressure.
the wifi and cable both functioned well. will stay there again. - User1372

This is a clean well kept park in the middle of Cranbrook about 1 mile off the highway on very bumpy badly kept city roads. Good cable and wifi was fast and reliable. Site was not level, set on a side hill and more like parking on the top of a mushroom. It appears to be run by the campground Nazis. Rules rules rules. For example, not just the usual "you must pick-up after your dog" and "don't leave pets unattended" but you cannot walk your dog, let him pee anywhere on the park grounds and if you leave a pet in your motor home while you are out you must let the staff know and leave a cell phone number! Each pet is $2 more. We chose not to let mgmt know about our two cats - what kind of rule is that? I think we would chose a different place the next time but okay for one or two nights I guess. - PJMac

This campground and lodge is located at the western edge of Cranbrook. Next to the lodge there are 8 RV sites of various sizes. 6 of the 8 sites were being used by long term residents. Of the two remaining sites only one site could accommodate a large RV (probably no more than 34 feet). The other site probably could accommodate a 25 foot RV. There are two electrical outlets per pedestal (30/20 amp service). Therefore, one rig would have to run their electrical cord underneath the rig. The voltage was good. There are two very clean bathrooms with a shower in each room. There is one residential and one commercial washer and two commercial dryers available for use. WiFi was available, a little weak but usable. Cranbrook is a train depot so you can expect some train noise, but it was not too bad. There is also a mini-golf course on the premise. The owners are very nice people. We would come back to the lodge if we were in the area. - adsaxs

RV park behind new lodge and adjacent to large bird sanctuary with lots of walking trails. Gorgeous sunsets. Facilities were always kept spotless. The young family that owns the place is extremely friendly. RV park also next to an mini-golf course. Sites are close together with no shade. Nice breeze off the lake though. Only two spots available for large rigs. - Mickelodeon

This is a small quiet provincial park. It is about 16 km south of Fort Steele on a secondary highway and quite close to Cranbrook, BC. It is well kept but there is no water hookup or electricity. Across the road is very pretty Norbury Lake which is turquoise in colour. It is very scenic. Deer are plentiful in this area so be careful when driving. According to the on site caretaker, there is a small 2 year old male bear in the area so make sure he doesn't scavage food so he won't be put down or relocated. This is a nice little park to stay in. The lots are also generous. - motorgo

This park was not good for our 40' motorhome and car but we found a double site and fit in for one night. We parked as far over to one site as possible with our slides. However, the manager came over about 7pm and asked us to move further over. There were plenty of empty sites available at this time of night & we couldn't believe he was worried about someone wanting to park so close next to us. If they did, they would have had enough room to pull in next to us. We told him this and said we wouldn't break everything down to move over a foot. So he charged us double. The sites are uneven with many trees to maneuver between. The campground roads were very dusty with people speeding through. It's a typical government campground with no facilities except for a reasonably clean vault toilet. There is a water faucet but no dump. This campground is reached by way of the side paved road which comes at a junction just north of Fort Steele at Hwy 93, 18 NE of Cranbrook. This side road reconnects at Hwy 93 approximately 20 miles south. From the north intersection go approximately 10 miles south on the side road. The campground is on the west side of the road. Across the road is Peckham's Lake and a day use area for swimming or boating, but power boats aren't allowed. There is a short trail from the campground to Norbury Lake but folks didn't seem to use this lake. - nbi600
