Office staff was extremely pleasant. The initial physical impression was not positive but once we got our site we were extremely pleased. There are permanent residents here as well and no campfires are permitted.
The campground should do some work on their "curb appeal". - Cathyhew

This was a decent stop for an overnight. The sites were pretty basic, but the big rig sites were plenty long and level, with a gravel base and a fair amount of grass. It looked like just grass at first, and we were worried about being too heavy, but the ground was packed hard and we had no problem. Not sure how I'd feel about it if there was a lot of heavy rain though.
We had 50 amps and full hook ups. The satellite worked. The folks were real friendly.
Navigating to the campground off the TransCanada highway was a little confusing - but there is a new service road to the north of the campground. Much easier turns going that way, and there is only a short stretch of road that is unpaved before entering the campground on the western end. Best to call for directions. - MerBee

This campground is easy off and easy on the Trans Canada. It was open early (returning snowbirds), but it was too cold to have the water on. The park host was wonderful, informative, friendly. She even help us out with some other parks along our route home. Was easy to stay hooked up to the site; it was large enough and then some. Didn't check the Wi-Fi as I had my own. We would surely stay here again. - 990dunlop

This park is rebuilding after a devastating flood. It was partially open for full service sites. The pads are level. There's lots of open space. The owners went out of their way to help us. Wi-Fi worked well. - artmartin

This park used to be called Curran Park and there are a number of references to that on the internet. It has large pond size swimming pool which is a major attraction. 60-70% of the sites are in a mature wooded area, the rest are in the open. The roads are mud & gravel with lots of potholes, the sites in the woods have mainly dirt driveways and the ones in the open have gravel. The overall impression is that the place has gone downhill since changing ownership. - JTD2

Good clean smaller park. Lake front available but subject to seasonal flooding. No pets allowed on beach but anywhere else is fair game. Mini golf and concession stand available during peak times. Lots of walking trails in area. Town is only a few minutes away if you forget something. - Enea Grande

As small town campgrounds go this one is a gem due to the fact it is on a small lake above a dam on the Little Saskatchewan. The campground has twelve sites with lovely mature pines, an adjacent children’s park and small beach that was sand during last year’s stay but due to recent flooding in the region is really just mud this year. The lake is lovely for both canoeing and wildlife watching with abundant birds, wildlife and the fishing is great. We saw a river otter from our window. The campground does not have water even though all sites have taps. You must get water from the town office. The washrooms were closed when we were there. Each site has a 30amp and two 20 amp plugs. Cell phone service exists here and our Roger’s internet card generally worked well but did have some intermittent slowdowns. The turn around at the lake side was tight. - Judy Birchland

Not a full service type place but a really wonderful tiny town campground next to a gorgeous little park on a small lake made from a nearby dam on the Little Saskatchewan River. Pay at city hall where the lady is wonderfully friendly and fill up with water there. If no one is around drop an envelope in the slot. Beautiful treed back in lots but you could drive through as we had the place to ourselves. The turn about is not for long vehicles. The campground is right next to a lovely little children's park and small sand beach. Perfect for a one night stop. Washrooms were clean and neat with lots of hot water. Be sure to walk down to the dam and see the fish ladder. We canoed up river into the upper marshes and saw lots of birds and wildlife including owls and beavers. - Judy Birchland

This is a nice municipal park in town run by volunteers with tender loving care. We arrived in early spring before the formal opening in late May but we were welcomed by a volunteer who rushed right over to help us. There was still snow in the campground. There is no charge to camp when the water is off. We got free tap water to fill our tank at the city shop a few blocks at the railway plus there is drinking water available by the jug at a private 24 hour water store next to the town Esso for $3 for 5 gallons. There is a sani dump just outside of the campground. Campground has variable sites, from nice flat and wide to narrow and slanted. Campground is in the bend of a small river/large creek near the mouth of the Souris and is also next to a large lovely park and bird sanctuary. There is a huge outdoor pool with watersides adjacent to the campground (not open during our stay) and several playgrounds for kids in and near the campground. There are many mature trees which meant we could barely navigate with our pick up and 28 RV but we did get into a perfect site backing onto the river. Would be impossible for a big rig. Souris is most famous for it's distinctive swinging bridge and you can easily walk from the campground to the bridge by following the creek. We loved it and we will come again. - Judy Birchland
