As noted by others there are add ons for wifi devices, cable, laundry but I only elected to get cable at @$2 more. Verizon worked well for cell service as well as wifi. With GS discount it still was a reasonable $37 plus tax CAD. Nice park but very few campers so had lots of space between units. We will stay here again. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed staying in this park on our way to the lower 48. The staff was friendly and helpful. The park including the showers and restrooms were very clean. Our site was spacious and level. This park is a little off of the main road, but easy enough to get to. Wi-Fi is available, but at an extra cost. We decided to forgo it for our stay. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Costs are in Canadian funds. Arrived with the intent of staying 3 nights, but we were only showing as staying 1 night on their ledger. Paid in full for three nights and then explored the town of Vanderhoof looking for a restaurant, but none were found or open. Our site was not level and required pads to level. This park is situated on a modest slope. All services available on site and cell service was available. The park charges $3 plus tax for wifi and it is valid for only 24 hours. We would not stay here again.

After seeing the lack of amenities in town, we told the owner that we may not stay 3 nights, but 2. We asked if he would credit us the night we gave up, his response: "Why should I?" The park was more than 50% vacant so he was not going to lose revenue. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean and well kept showers, bathrooms and community room, we exchanged books. Didn't use wifi, Verizon signal was good. Very open spaces with garbage cans at site, convenient. Some sites had firepits. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice looking campground..... The grounds are well kept and neat, and the manager is serious about running a good operation. The roads are good and the site spacing is adequate. We had a level easy-in/easy-out gravel pull thru. No comment as to the quality of the restroom or shower facilities as we did not use them. My only complaint centers around the seemingly endless add ons to the base price. Evertyhing is extra. Sure, I understand the concept of tailoroing unit costs according to one's wants and needs, but I reached my limit when I was told I'd have to buy a separate internet ticket each for my iMac and our Kindle Fire HD. Two WiFi charges? The additional charges should be noted on the list of services provided. They are not. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stopped here for one night. Reservation and check-in was very friendly. Found the park layout very easy to navigate. We had a large pull-through that was easy in, easy out. Level gravel. Good value for money. Would definitely stay here again. Did not use WiFi, I believe it was extra if needed. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

I see lots of whining about the cost but if you don't need the services you don't pay for them. We are in a 40' big rig with all the amenities. We don't use toilets or showers or laundry. You get what you pay for. I get internet through my phone and It works great here. This is a great camp and it is well kept. Nice spacious sites. Easy access pull throughs and friendly owners. I recommend it. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This is the most expensive park we've stayed at this trip. It is really clean and well maintained and sites are a decent size so you are not crammed on top of your neighbor, however they advertise wifi but neglect to say you have to pay for it. At 3 dollars a day per computer you would expect good internet, but it is so slow you can barely send an email. If I come this way again I would stay at the municipal site.

Love this quiet campground! There are pull thru sites as well as back-ins. We had full hook up on hard packed gravel, level, grass and picnic table. Not too close to neighbors. Excellent washers and dryers. Some of the cleanest showers and bathrooms we have seen. Manicured lawns and gardens. An elderly couple own and operate this facility by themselves. The woman brought us apple squares made from her fruit trees and even found my lost earring while cleaning under the washing machine with a Swiffer! Highly recommend for quiet, cleanliness, beautiful surroundings, and convenience to Vanderhoof for errands and necessities. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice RV park for an overnight stay. Sites are grass and the driveways are packed gravel. There's flower gardens and shade in some of the sites. Check-in is easy and the owner very friendly. There's an additional cost for Wi-Fi per computer, an additional cost for cable TV (that doesn't work) and costs based on pull-through, back-in or 30/50 amps. The park is very well kept-up and the owner's dedication to the park is obvious. I probably won't stay here again because of all the add-on costs, but the campground quality is a step above most of the ones I've stayed at since I left Alaska. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Owners live in house on premise, very nice when checked in. As other reviewer said, some sites are a little narrow, but for overnighter, is just fine. Park is very nice. has a nice garden area with a large checkerboard to play. Nice flowers and seating area. Did not see until we were leaving. Wish had seen last night and would have sat out there and enjoyed the evening. The only thing I really did not care for but did use was the wifi. We had to pay $3.00 per device to use wifi. So that was $6.00 more to our nightly rate. In addition, $2.00 for 50amp service. I don't feel we got $6.00 worth for the wifi for one night but that was the only way we could get it for each of our devices. You could not move the code from your laptop to your iPad either. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Basic park with few amenities other than laundry. Utilities work fine, extra charge for 50Amp or cable. Not many people here. They say it does not get busy until July/August. Town is just down the street and has all the basics. Owner is very grumpy (wife says they want to sell). Best to just park, sleep, wake, and then quietly leave. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very nice park with large pull-through sites. The owner was very nice and helpful. They had very nice rest rooms, showers, and laundry facilities. They charged a flat fee per load of laundry which was very convenient not to have to deal with change for the machines. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great place to stay for a couple of days. The pride and care of the campground and the owners personal home shows. They have a beautiful flower garden with winding path through it with plaques explaining the names of the flowers. Everything is kept clean and in working order. The sites are a good width and length with grass, picnic table on nice patio. Wi-Fi worked good, so didn't mind being charged a daily fee. Many TV channels were available, also for an extra fee. Owner stopped by before we left and said "We have some of the nicest people stay in our backyard". Would definitely stay again if in the area. We camped at Dave's RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
