A little pricey even with Good Sam discount but convenient and room to maneuver a 43' rig. Wi-Fi pretty good. Cable TV okay. Great place to stay to visit Hyder, Alaska. They recycle! Gravel sites. Would stay again. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Agree with the last review - sewer hookups not only are too high but next to an older water connection - and an odor coming from the water drainage under the water faucet. The breaker flipped and no one was at the park that could help us. Finally figured it out for ourselves - after walking around in the rain. The location is right after you enter Stewart and about 5 miles from the Hyder, AK crossing and the bear viewing area. Recommend going to see the bears and Salmon glacier - you don't have much choice in where to stay - one in Stewart and one in Hyder. Bring supplies as you are remote and they can be expensive. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place. Would have given them a 9 if the Internet hadn't been rationed at 50 MB per day (which is NOT advised on their web site). Cable TV was very snowy and on a few channels. Sites were perfectly level and they were working on filling potholes in the driveways. Managers didn't seem to care about the Internet issues when they didn't reset after 24 hours. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Slots would be tight if they were full, but plenty of space to spread out as it was only 1/4 full. Wi-Fi is spotty (drops a lot). Just outside of town it is a good bike area and you can peddle over to Hyder easily. Only concern is the sewer tend to be very high at some sites and it is right next to water supply.

The staff was very helpful concerning bear sightings and locations. The sites were not level, so make sure you have extra blocking. The WiFi was OK, but I would not say great. The hook-ups were located mid way which made hooking up easy. We would stay here again. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This well cared for park has good gravel roads and sites, with nice patches of grass in between, and a row of mature trees for shade. The sites are among the most spacious we've seen and very level. Water, electricity and sewer hookups are convenient, but I would prefer that water and sewer are separated by more than a few inches. Wi-Fi worked well. Bathrooms, though not particularly spacious, were crispy clean and neat, but showers cost extra. The laundry room looked neat and clean, but we didn't actually use it. Price seemed a bit high despite Good Sam discount, but similar to other parks in Alaska and BC. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Motorhome.

About the best in the area for big rigs. The sites are haphazard in arrangement, but you will have shade and landscape instead of all gravel. We had a long pull through 30/water/sewer. Highway and the industrial big trucks noise didn't bother us on the inside sites of park. We visited the bear viewing a couple of times and the salmon were running in the Salmon River. No bears though. We seen a couple of bears at the Hyder, AK town dump. The Salmon Glacier is a nice day trip (30 miles one way). We ate at "The Bus" in Hyder for an unique experience. Groceries were very expensive, so be sure to be well stocked before traveling to Stewart. We stayed 3 nights and would stay here again. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 nights late in July hoping that the salmon were running in Hyder, so that we could see the bears. The campground was not overly crowded, so we had no one next to us. The park was not crowded, so we did not experience the crowding and parking problem that would exist when the campground is packed. All of the services worked well, and the WIFI was adequate. This is easily the best campground in the area, and the Salmon Glacier is a must-see. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are a little awkward and close together in some areas. Showers are tight but usable. $2.50 to wash, same to dry. There were 2 tents while we were here even with signs saying 'no tents' and not being outside at night because of the bears. We drove to "Salmon Glacier" on a dirt and bumpy 15 mile road, and it was well worth it. We stopped at the 'bear viewing' platform on the way to the glacier. Very nice but no bear because the salmon were not running yet. wWe ate at "The Bus" in Hyder, AK about 5 miles away, both days we were here! Go there, it's the best! We will stay here again.

This park is OK for a short term stay. The pull in motor home spaces are a bit odd. There are several sites all clumped together, and they all look at each other. No cell or satellite signal of any kind. And kind of weird, this was the only RV park in 15 years of RV'ing that didn't want to let me wash the bugs off of the front window. And I mean 300 miles of bugs. I explained that I only use warm water and no chemicals of any kind. I got some lame excuse about the ecologists say it's not good for the environment. What? So what happens when it rains, like it does every other day? She couldn't answer. I washed them anyway. I would look for someplace else to stay if I came to the area again. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice setting, but weird with the pull ins for motor homes, requiring back outs. Very muddy at our site which was not fun and we were told this was a better site. Spaces in general were wide with grass which was nice. Side by side hookups. Priority space went to the caravan rigs. Internet not reliable. Laundry was fine: only 2 washers/2 dryers but worked fine. Cable TV access was weird but worked fine. Friendly welcome! We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you are looking for a landscaped, well-manicured campground this is not it, but if you want a great value for your money, with exceptionally friendly, helpful owners you will stay here. Bathrooms were somewhat dated, but very clean: soap and shampoo were even provided. There are communal fire-pits and after closing the office, the owners join campers at the campfire. We highly recommend this campground. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful setting. Huge sites. Very friendly owners. Had TV hookups, but very grainy and had to rob splitters from neighbouring sites. Was supposed to have Wi-Fi, but I had a lot of trouble getting and keeping a signal, it kept timing out on me. When it seemed to be working, it was so slow, that I gave up. The mosquitoes were insane. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Not bad. After trying all three Wi-Fi hot spots I was finally able to connect. The mosquitoes will eat you alive but that's not unusual for BC. We had to fog our coach while we visited Stewart/Hyder area to kill the critters that were inside from the last CG that we stayed in. Cable was good and the owners were very helpful.

Park is a turn-off on Hwy 37A going into Stewart, next to road maintenance yard. This is a nice campground with gravel/dirt roads in park. Campsites are slightly elevated gravel and grass sites. Only 1 pull-through that I saw and only a pull-through if you drive through an empty site. No fires at campsite, unless dry camping. Has a common campfire area, with multiple fire rings. Free firewood for your use. We camped at Bear River RV Park in a Motorhome.
