Some of the sites are "close" if you have slideouts, but there are a couple of pull-thrus that allow for big rigs with lots of slides. Nice little park, right off of the Trans Canada. Yes, that means road noise, and even the occasional train on the other side of the road, but then every RV campground in the area seems to be "just off the Trans Canadian Highway." But, the bathrooms are nice, the showers are hot, and the owners are super friendly and helpful. There's no official pet area, but that doesn't seem to be an issue. There are some small playground pieces for the youngest kids. Afternoon leaves all the sites in the shade. Cable TV is available, and the town of Salmon Arm is a short 3 miles down the road. We stayed here two nights just to rest, and it was a nice little place to hang out, recuperate from the road, and then get back going again.

We overnighted here for 2 nights. Simple little campground with clean showers. The nearby biking path was wonderful. Overall, nice little spot just off the freeway for a quick overnight, shower, and then back on the road. Owners were super friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for 6 nights, allowing us to easily explore Glacier and even day trip up to Waterton Lakes NP in Canada. We had our dog with us and for the days we thought we'd be gone longer than her bladder could handle it. They have a pet walking/sitting service which was wonderful. The pet areas are clean and large, the showers are clean and hot, and they have fire pits for evening marshmallow roasting. Even though they say keep pets on leash, we let our dog romp and chase a ball in the pet area without problems. The pool is NOT heated, but the hot tub is, and makes for a great relaxer if you've been hiking in Glacier all day. Beware, there are no quality food stores nearby, and even the hour long trip to West Glacier won't get you much, so stock up on your food before you arrive. Fuel is also not really nearby for a decent price, but you can pay the exorbitant prices to help get you somewhere with more reasonable prices. Overall, a good stay and we'd do it again.

We stayed 5 nights here, catching the end of the Stampede. Overall, the park is clean and there is enough room for slide outs. There is a path next to the river that is an off leash dog path. Wonderful, if you are traveling with dogs. The biggest downside to this park: the showers require you to pay $2CAD for 5 min of hot water, and the internet (the free version) isn't what you'd call fast and there is a data limit (2GB, which was enough for our 5 day stay.) On another note, the mosquitos were fierce. Not sure if that's just a result of the recent flooding or not. However, that said, it's an easy trip up 1 A to the C Train station, or hop on 22 down to Hwy 1 and into Calgary - that way (roughly 30 minutes.) Banff was a little over an hour westward. Cochrane has plenty of little shops, or larger stores like Safeway if you need to restock. It was a good spot to serve as our center for exploring the Banff/Calgary area.
