Stayed at the Poplars to and from the Yukon. Quiet, clean, and good price. They now offer only Campground/RV Park and Cabins. Their cafe is closed as is their fuel. I was told they had the business for 21 yrs and now want to scale back. I got there in mid June, and they had just opened the day before. They said they will close sometime in late Sept. - roeco

This campground is CLOSED. Roadside sign approaching from the North says "OPEN," but rounding the corner you can see fence and barrels blocking both driveways. We continued a few miles to Toad River Lodge. - JCMDT

The sites are long, level, dirt pull-throughs. We had FHU's in site #30 at the top of the hill next to a large open area. We had beautiful views in front and left of us. The pull through sites are long but extremely narrow and the park felt very cramped when it got more full in the evening. We had a problem with our power, it dipped significantly when load was high in the evening. Staff was friendly and helpful. - mahaffee

This is a beautiful, clean well maintained rv park. We were given a back in site right on the lake. We were able to watch a moose eat in the lake while we had our dinner and later saw two beaver.
Even though its right on the highway it was very quiet. We would definitely stay again. - Bill n Marti

Stayed 2 nights. Would stay for many more but had a schedule to keep. Excellent site by the lake, spacious, well kept. Plenty of wildlife to view, free showers, FREE firewood, fire rings. We had a minor mechanical issue with a stabilizer and their maint man did a repair for cost of a donation, NO big bill. Restaurant had good food, best hamburger steak in years. Highly recommended !! Hat count (hanging everywhere) as of our stay ... 10,099. - Nevada Nick

This was by far the most poorly managed place we've seen thus far in more than 8,000 miles of RVing. And it's a shame because the location (nestled in a valley by a small lake) is perfect and this could be a 5-star place. But it is poorly managed, short-staffed, and ill-kept.
Had a reservation for our RV at Toad River. Went in after a long day's drive only to wait at the counter for more than 10 minutes for someone to come from the kitchen. When we gave our name, she told us the "new girl" had booked us in a site that was already taken, they had no more RV sites available but we could pull up near one of the cabins and hook in to water and electric from one of the buildings. After looking at the tight space where they wanted to put us, I walked back in, waited again, and told her we'd decided to drive on. Miraculously, they suddenly had a site available. Unbelievable.
The sites were relatively flat, decent water pressure, enough space to park our Jeep alongside. They had extremely weak WiFi (worse than many campgrounds). Wildlife (we saw a moose, beaver, ducks, etc.) come to the water in the evening, but there is no designated place to walk to the lake's edge so we had to walk through people's campsites to access it.
We didn't even try the restaurant because we'd already seen people waiting impatiently for food and the same woman who finally "discovered" a site for us was already stacking chairs on tables at 8:20 even though we were told the restaurant was open until 9 p.m.
Had we not had such a hassle after we bothered to make reservations, my rating would have been a little better. This is such a missed opportunity on the owners' part. - DebGA

This BC Provincial park is right beside the Alaska Highway and on Muncho Lake with some sites right beside the lake. The only water source is a hand pump, so there is no way to fill a tank. When we were here, we could not get any water out of the pump, so you will need to bring whatever water you will need during your stay. There are pit toilets and no dump station, so you will be hauling out whatever water you use. Since the campground is right on the highway, there is traffic noise, but, at least when we camped here,, there was very little traffic during the day and almost no traffic at night, so it was not a big problem. The sites are fairly level but you may need some leveling blocks for some of the sites. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. The attendant comes by in the early evening to collect the camping fee and sell firewood. There is no Verizon phone signal. Some sites would get satellite, but we had no luck getting satellite TV because of being so far north. It is a beautiful setting and we would definitely stay here again. - TheJim

We were fortunate enough to get the last spot at this campground and the neighboring McDonald Creek Provincial Park when the Alaska Highway was closed for 4 days because of a road washout in Yukon. What a great place to have to "rough it" in a dry campground!! Potable water is available on site and the pit toilets were kept very clean. The camp attendants are first-rate. They came through the campgrounds several times a day with firewood and road status updates. The sites are very spacious and level. This is a great place to fish, hike and relax. If electricity were available, I would give it a 10. - PatriotParents

I would give this a ten except that it is rather hard to negotiate this campground. There is one road in and out (has a turnaround) and once someone is one the road the next unit must wait for them to either park or exit. Otherwise you would meet them head on, and then have to back out! Very small campground but there does seem to be room to correct the road and to add more sites. It is a beautiful place to camp and lovely campsites. Lots of dogs and inconsiderate campers that let their dogs bark at all hours. NO hook up or bathrooms! Dry camping only. We would stay here again. - User2209

Many of the sites are surrounding a large shed in a muddy parking lot. Ours was one of those. We had water and electric in a back in site with no place to put our toad. Site was so narrow it would have had slides touching if anyone had been parked by us. Front desk staff only interested in selling tours or a more expensive site; don't even give you a campground map to find your site. Dump can only be used if you block in other folks from their site. Would not stay here again. - Pktva

The park staff was lovely and helpful. The amenities were clean and stocked with necessary items. The sites are spacious and well-kept and the surrounding park is beautiful. I would highly recommend this spot. - ss2015

I also was very disappointed with this park, if it can be called that. Very nice scenery overlooking the lake. We had a back in regular site that was very tight. We parked next to a telephone service truck who was only 3-4 feet away and people on the other side were the same distance from us. Fortunately they did not have a slide on that side of their rig. The park also had a generator running all night not far from our site. This was a lot like staying at a truck stop with a truck running next door.
Worst of all was the wifi. Worst set up we've run into in Canada yet and we've been in Canada almost a month plus 4 months last summer. 50MB of free service, then you start paying. I did not need to worry about the 50MB because the service was down most of the time and when it was working I got some sort of a virus which has totally messed up my computer. I would not stay here ever again. Be careful if you use the wifi. - RayN

Nice campground along the lake with spectacular views. There are trees between the sites but they are not thick for a lot of privacy. - sAws

This park gets a 9 just for the beauty of the lake and mountains that are all around you. We were here for four days dry camping and loved it. You park on gravel and the road can be dusty but the dust blew away from us when we were here. You have a nice picnic table and a fire enclosure. The fishing is good right from the shore. The camps are mostly in three clumps but they are screened by trees. The first 3 or 4 sites as you enter the park will hold the longest RVs and are the most separated. We even had a bear walk through the park one night. The park hosts are through several times a day and do a great job of keeping the park clean. - Doug67

Fantastic experience! Travelling all through Canada and Alaska, it was refreshing to stay at a park who knows what RVers need - spacious level sites, and hook-ups that are located at the correct spot and height of the space. The spaces are tiered on a hillside, so everyone can share in the beautiful view of Muncho Lake. The park is well maintained. The owners were very friendly and helpful, we tow a boat with the motorhome and the owner launched and retrieved the boat for us with his pickup at no charge-made it much easier for us. We happen to pull in there last weekend of the season and were invited to their end of season get together, made us feel right at home. This is a family oriented park, lots of children around, and the people there were nothing but friendly, helpful, and hospitable. We would definitely stay again. - coastergirl

The owners are foul-mouthed and disrespectful to those staying at their site. I would never allow my children around them. It's unfortunate that they choose to act in such a way while operating a business.They were also incredibly unhelpful during our stay. The washroom facilities were filthy. We had to ask the owners to restock with soap, toilet paper, and paper towel and they were openly annoyed at us for interrupting them. We were there for a wedding! You would think they'd at least check and ensure their washrooms were acceptable for guests. I would recommend that anyone traveling along the Alaska highway choose to stay at nearby RV parks and bypass this horrible experience altogether. - ss2015

Great views of a beautiful lake but little else. Sites are terraced on a steep hill leading down to the lake. They are close together. Big rigs can be tight on some sites. Power was a major problem. Electricity comes from their own diesel generator which was inadequate for the job. Voltage drops kept causing my power protection to cut off. I measured voltages as low as 100v. We had to run our own generator for AC during the day. No TV, cell service, or Internet. Price is an estimate as we were part of a prepaid caravan. - glenthompson
