Park is on the banks of the Bulkley River - no beach unfortunately. Level sites either all grass (interior) or grass and gravel parking around perimeter. Quiet and restful park setting.

Washrooms had one roll-in handicap shower. Showers were included.

We stayed three days because WiFi was so good - got our blog updated, uploaded lots of pictures and compressed) Utube videos with No problems. We camped at Riverside Municipal RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Smithers has a pretty retail area downtown - less than 5 minute drive - nice coffee shops also. Major shops in Smithers. Be sure to visit "downtown" - very pretty! Try Two Sisters coffee shop.

We stayed for one night on our way through the area, and enjoyed our stay. The campground is mostly in a large grassy area, so there is no shade to speak of. The hookups worked without any problems. I did change the WIFI setting to YES, because it was available, although it seemed to be via a satellite dish next to the host's trailer so might go away at some time. The WIFI was good for normal use. There is a very nice playground for children. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Riverside Municipal RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park, large grassy areas for kids to play. Nice common room. Washrooms sparse, but very clean. Camp hosts extremely accommodating and friendly. Lots of mosquitoes. The ads for this park state that it has Wi-Fi, but it does not. Even so, I'd stay here again. We camped at Riverside Municipal RV Park & Campground in a Truck Camper.

Site was a 15 amp long gravel/grass back-in. It is possible to pull through on sites in the middle, but only through an another empty site. The campground is located on a grass field. The only river sites are small and appear to be for tents. Most of the original gravel pads have grass growing in. The sewer outlet was a below ground connection which made it awkward to get a tight fit with our elbow connector. Our electric post was controlled by a breaker on another site post and the attendant had to turn it on for us. I noticed there were only a couple more sewer sites so if you want full hookups better reserve. Most electric sites were 15 amp, but there was a row of 30 amp sites. Each site had a table and fire grill. The tables needed to be refinished and painted. The shower house is now finished. There was one flush toilet and two showers on the men’s side and they were not clean. As well there were some pit toilets around the campground perimeter. Previous mention was made of getting to the campground via Main Street. If driving into Smithers from the east one can turn off at King Street to access Main Street as well. No cable TV, but received four different channels off the air. Wi-Fi worked well when it was on. Attendant advised he had to continually reboot the system. There are some good trails in the park that access another park up the hill and residential areas of town. Cookhouse available for campers if not already reserved. We camped at Riverside Municipal RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This nicely groomed public park is in a quiet location on the edge of town directly on the Bulkley River. It provides good utilities, free firewood and generously sized level grass sites. The Wi-Fi was fast and good while present but vanished completely at times. A few TV channels were available via antenna. No public showers were available due to construction. A central structure with picnic tables, wood stoves and sinks was clean and inviting. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Riverside Municipal RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A bit overpriced considering the lack of amenities. The toilets are pit toilets and there are no showers for now. Construction of showers and flush toilets began in May, 2011 and are still waiting to be completed. 30 Amp electric was weak. When we turned on the microwave, voltage at our site dropped to 108 volts. Good water. Sewer connection easily accessible. All grass, back in sites. Big enough for the largest rigs with multiple slide-outs. Park manager will come around to collect the fee: cash only, $26 Canadian as of June, 2011. Poor signage from town to the campground, but easy to find. Take Main Street 8/10 of a mile northeast through a residential area of town to the campground. Entrance will be on your left. Numerous walking trails throughout the area and along the river which is next to the park. We camped at Riverside Municipal RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
