2 Parks near Whistler, British Columbia
Sep 2015 - $55.00
We've stayed here a number of times. You can't beat the location for ease of getting to anything in and around Whistler. The Village is an easy walk or bike ride. The sites are adequate (paved and somewhat level) but snug for larger rigs. Thankfully it's fully treed so there is some privacy between sites. Services (w/e/s) are good. Wi-fi is spotty. They currently don't have cable as they say they haven't been able to find a reliable service. Restrooms are very clean. Front desk staff seems to be made up of seasonal employees so the service (or friendliness and knowledge) seems to vary a fair bit depending when you come and who is on duty. - busguy22

Front desk help was rude when telling me we couldn't check in an hour early and they didn't mention Good Sam discount. Site was very tight with barely enough room for two chairs. Neighbors were very close, roads narrow. Too many sites crammed into the campground. No cable TV as advertised. Because of trees our satellite would not work. We were told wifi only worked in the office but at times it worked in our site. Left a night early with no refund, as stated in their policies. Power was weak. - Skpeterson

Have not been to this campground for over a year, but we where going with another couple and decided to give it a go again. Made reservations online for 2 sites, no problem. Requested a certain area and got it. Check-in was no problem, the only complaint is they charged more for cable now than they did 1 year ago. Sites are on the smaller side, not a lot of room for chairs. Firepit is situated closet to the RV which is not movable. We have a 40 ft fifth wheel and the only issue was their trees and shrubbery surrounding. Trying to get in the back-in site the whole side of our truck was scratched. My husband has a class 1 and knows how to drive. They should be trimming the trees back for ease of backing into these sites. I did complain at the front desk and was told she would let management know. Not one person come to acknowledge what happened! We brought our charcoal BBQ and were told to put it out one night cause there is a fire ban. A self contained unit? Just like a BBQ? I was not happy! I'm glad I came back for the short time but will not return. There are other options in the area I will go with. - jenabby

First impressions are important but not necessarily final. Upon arrival at 1:00 pm, we found the Whistler RV Park locked up with a local phone number to call. Thank heavens for OnStar since our Verizon cell phones had no service. After a 5 minute wait, a stoic attendant opened the office and confirmed our reservation.
Our pull-thru spot at the far end of the RV park was gravelly but fairly level. Water pressure was somewhat low but useable. Electricity was steady and wi-fi was very good for a wide open facility. Satellite users had no trouble in gaining a signal. Also, the numerous RVs had an acceptable 25 feet of separation between units. Each site had a crude fire ring, with many users opting to create their own fire area or to use a rented fire bowl.
If you like get-away-from-it-all forested camping, Whistler RV Park is a fabulous location. A late September reservation, of course, runs the risk of inclement weather; it rained every day of our stay. Interestingly, the rainy weather did not deter the numerous off-road quad users as they sped through the park to their various (wet) destinations.
All things considered, we enjoyed our stay and the park's close proximity to both Whistler and Squamish. If we visit the area again, we'll chose a drier season. - Professor Ken

This is a really tough park to rate. The good: The view is absolutely incredible from the RV sites. There is no privacy between sites but at least there is adequate spacing. There are endless outdoor activities to do in the area and Whistler Village is less than 20 minutes away. The bad: We were here during the busy summer season so the place was constantly full of the weekend "woo-hoos." You know, the folks with their quads and dirt bikes that have to rev their engines as they go from their sites to the off-road trails, and then stay up partying untl 1 AM. Honestly folks, can't you just go camp out in the woods? Also, NOBODY can drive under 35 kmh in the park (the speed limit is 10 kmh) so there was a constant cloud of dust. And the worst offenders were the park staff!
I would come back again in the off season just never again during the busy season. - clayghir

What a great campground. Pull-throughs and fire pits, but had to pay $8.00 for a fire permit. We had elk next to our trailer both morning and nite. I wish all campgrounds were this good. - oldguy68
