We stayed at this park as an overnight on our way down Crowsnest pass to Vancouver Island. All we were needing was somewhere to park for a few hours and in case the snowstorm we were in the middle of would not give up. We arrived at about 5 pm, as it was getting dark. The owner greeted me at the front desk and was very pleasant, gave us the Low Season rate and pointed out a couple of pull throughs we could set up in and take off from easily in the morning. We took spot #5 right in front of the office and next to the washrooms which were in very good condition. We plugged in set up for the night, took the dogs for a walk in the designated doggier area. The Wi-Fi here was excellent, probably more so because we had parked directly across from the office where it likely originates. Still, impressive speeds. The snow had let up overnight and we were able to leave early on. From our dog walks in the relative dark, it seemed like a nice campground. I was happy with the friendly service and the cost was excellent for a quick overnight stay. I would gladly check it out again during warmer weather with less snow and in daylight. A longer stay under better weather conditions would likely garner a higher score.

We were passing through Hope on our way to BC so this was just an overnight stop. We arrived late and in the dark and left very early so we cannot make any statements about the general condition of the place. The front staff/owner was pleasant, told us that there were plenty of spots (it was first week of January, we just gone through quite the blizzard and they weren't full) and to just pull into a pull through he pointed us to. He did note that they had closed the washrooms and showers for winter - their website does stipulate that the shower building closes after the Thanksgiving weekend and reopens for the Easter weekend. We were just happy they were open in winter and let us book in near 9 pm. After finding the hookups (they are under the white wooden boxes you have to lift off) and plugging in, we basically just had dinner and crashed for the night. We left early on without any further contact. So all in all, we were happy with what we got, as limited as our needs were and short as our stay was, less than 8 hours.

We are currently winter camping here and so far, it's been nothing but great. The staff was very friendly when we came in at about 5:30 a couple of weeks ago, so after sundown. They told us to find any vacant spot and then look around in the morning for available spots we would prefer. We had already looked over their website and with photos of nearly every individual space available (we stopped looking after seeing a whole bunch) we had already set our sights on two. One was available and we parked in it. The next day, we strolled around and decided we had picked the best one for us. There is a dump station at every serviced spot as well as cable TV, water and 30 amp service. There are also spots with less services for those who don't need that. We were told right away that the Wi-Fi was less than dependable; the abundant trees make for great obstructions to the radio waves. I think I'll keep the trees and forgo the internet. We love this place, are amazed that, with their 53 or so acres, they didn't just cram RV and tent spots on top of each other which they could have, like most RV parks like to do. There's good separation, often with mature trees between most spots and you do feel you are in a forest, not merely next to one. There are a LOT of dogs here, we see plenty of them when we walk ours. But there's little barking if any and I've seen no signs of people not being responsible cleaners. Since we walk the dogs around the perimeter anyway, the previously noted lack of garbage cans on the far end of the campground is a very minor issue. Based on our 2 week stay (so far) I would absolutely and readily recommend this campground.
