4 Parks near Whistler, British Columbia

We read some reviews about this place, regarding the price. It is not the cheapest we visited, BUT! I much rather pay 10 more bucks for a place like this, than to save that and have a lousy shower, for instance.
This is a PROFESIONAL run place with clean facilities, friendly staff, and very close to the hot spot in Whistler. Definitely a good choice for a stay. - The Divers

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

Park is within long walking distance from Whistler which was good on our visit which was a three day national holiday. You couldn't find a parking spot in whistler if your life depended on it. The RV sites are on the small side and close together but the park is nicely landscaped. the staff was very helpful not only about the campground but activities in the surrounding area. - DennisA

This is a park that fails to live up to it's potential. Hard packed dirt interior roads are dusty and in incredibly bad condition. Numerous large deep pot holes are impossible to avoid and make driving unpleasant. Towing a trailer just adds to the misery. This is bear country with numerous signs warning not to leave food out. When we arrived on Saturday afternoon the bear proof dumpsters were stuffed full. By the next morning bags of garbage had been deposited on the ground around them. They were still present on Monday morning. It doesn't look like staff has mowed or trimmed any of the grass in any of the sites this season. Full timers with cluttered sites are off putting. ORV's (muffled & unmuffled) are permitted to operate freely in the park. If you are lucky enough to get one of the rim sites, (all back ins) your view of the valley will be spectaular. Pull throughs don't enjoy the same vista. Park staff/management do not make much of an effort, and the park condition reflects this. This park could easily be an 8-9 if shown some effort & love. With that said, there is not much to choose from in the area. - mrhddh

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

I stayed here just overnight on my way through. It was a Sunday night, the camp hosts were very kind on the phone and set me up for a late check-in. Everything was in order when I got there and I quickly found my spot and set up. I was only one of about 5 campers in the place so it was peaceful and quiet. On the way in I realized I was driving into a moderate rain forest...literally. This campground is under the canopy of a genuine rain forest. As such, roadways and spaces are tight. I have a small TT, no issues. I can imagine it would be a nightmare for a large TT or 5er or a Class A. The overhang is tight, but that is part of the charm of the campground. I kept expecting a dinosaur to appear, clomping around the fern covered forest floor. If you have kids, their imaginations will run wild! Likes: Neat location under the tree canopy, decent size spaces, fire pit, picnic table, full hook-ups. Dislikes: Sewer hook-up was almost out of reach without an extension hose. For as wet a location as this is, more gravel in the spaces would be nice. Lot's of mud when it rains. Back-in spaces only. No cell service and no internet. I was traveling alone on this trip, with only my dogs, but I would have enjoyed this much more if I had my kids with me. For one thing, they love trains. There is a CN line right behind the campground along the property line. I could hear and see the trains from my space. None at night, thankfully, and the line is not heavily used. But the kids would have been thrilled to go camping in a rain forest and also be able to watch the trains from our site. This is also convenient to the West Coast Rail Museum in Squamish, the reason I took this little detour over the Sea to Sky Highway to begin with. It is a wonderful museum and would be a lot of fun for any kid, young or old, who loves trains. I will also add that I had a minor repair item on my trailer on the roof, but no way to get up there until I went to check out the next morning and the camp hosts were happy to loan me a ladder. They were very kind and overall, provided an excellent experience that I wish I had time to enjoy for more than an overnight stay. - tundraboomer

The owners of this private campground keep it clean and well run. If they trimmed their trees more, they could accommodate larger rigs because these sites are huge. We were in a 32' Cardinal with 2 slides and our unit is tall. It was a bit dicey trying to maneuver the tree branches. We were with family who were tenting and the one washroom facility near us was either running out of toilet paper or the toilet was plugged. Suggest they monitor that washroom more and perhaps build another one. A close walk to the river or several scenic trails. - labbysmom
