I have been camping at Wapiti Park campground for over 10 years. The seasonal campers and the full-time campers are all very nice and very helpful. The animals on the property, (they do not have emu's any more), are of course caged and not walking around the campgrounds, and are beautiful. I know that my kids love to go and see the donkeys, horses, chickens and much more. The river is one of the most calm I have ever been in and one of the cleanest. We love to float down the river from the beginning of the campground until the end of the campground. Sometimes we even sneak a midnight float in, of course the owner is always watching and telling us to be careful: even at my age of 38. From the time I was 18 until 27 my family and I jumped from campground to campground. However since we found Wapiti, we have not been to another campground.
I camped here with family and stayed for 4 nights. I first would like to say that the office employees were very nice and accommodating to my worries when I called. However, I was moved before I got there three times. My sister, niece, and my two daughters went a day before us, and told me what to expect when we got there. They were not lying when they said that the fishing stream was dried up. I know and understand the park cannot control this, but they should have told us that the fishing stream is the run off from the city and when it rains that it floods and floods fast. My girls were walking on the rocks when it was raining, and thank God they are 16 and 17 because they heard the water coming and knew to get out. If it would have been my 8 year old niece or some other younger child playing down on the rocks they could have been seriously injured. The park really needs to let their campers know about this run off. I do have to say the site we were on was pretty nice, if you enjoy being in the shade all day long. Though the campground has tons of trees there is no sun pretty much anywhere. Thank god we also had the campsite we did because it was one of the few that actually had grass; the rest pretty much were wood chips. Though again, I know they cannot control this but when it rained our campsite became mud and clay which didn't dry at all the rest of the stay, I am sure it didn't help with no sun. I do have to say the bath houses were clean, and the prices were pretty good, though they didn't really carry anything but ice and wood in their store. We had to go to Super America to get very simple camping items that you might run out of. I would have to say I would probably not choose to go back to this campground in the future.
