Buckinghorse Wayside Provincial Park, Pink Mountain, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

They have a lot of sites but no pull through. No camp host just envelopes to deposit fees $18 Canadian dollars. Picnic tables on cement slabs and fire rigs. Sites close together. Lots of access points to the river. Sites #13 . 24 and the end #33 if you stay part on the turn around area, could accommodate large rigs with trailers. There is also space in the turn around area if you should need to park a trailer for the night. We are 52 feet and we could fit just barely by parking in part of the turn around area near site #33. There were only 5 other spots in the whole campground in use that evening. So, it is not that popular, but nice as it was like having the camp to ourselves. The river behind it is beautiful. Site #24 is bit unleveled due to a wash out gully in the site. There is a water source with a sign saying you should boil it before drinking. We camped at Buckinghorse Wayside Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Sasquatch Provincial Park, Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

If you are looking for a family campground, and you plan to stay for a few days, this is a great place. However, if you are passing through and only need a spot for one-night, I wouldn't recommend it. The road in is about 3 ½ miles and it is all washboard and pot holes. So, drive slowly. The sites are all in the trees and the trees are thick, so there is not much natural sunlight that comes through nor is there much green vegetation undergrowth. There are a lot of trees, so if you have a bigger camper be careful as you may need to navigate trees to get in to your site. We did. Site #11 was long enough to hold us as we are 52 feet pulling a trailer, but it was tight and the narrow entrance was a little challenging-practice backing up before coming here. Also, if you plan to spend a few days, we saw most people place plastic tarps and covers over their tents and campers. When I asked if that was because of the rain, I was told it was because of the pine needles as there are many that fall. Hick's lake is beautiful. It is great for swimming, fishing, and canoeing and small boating. You can see glimpses of it through the trees from many campsites. There is a nice walking trail that goes around it. We camped at Sasquatch Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

The most amazing view of any campground we have ever stayed at. Level sites and full hooks up and they have a dump station. They can accommodate big rigs. There is a nature trail to walk to lake edge . The hosts are very nice, and there is a small gift shop in the office. It is presently for sale. We camped at Mountain Shadow RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tā Ch’ilā Provincial Park (Boya Lake), Good Hope Lake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Don't miss it. Stay here if you can. Boya Lake is gorgeous and there are lots of sites in the trees and on the lake. There is playground area for the kids and boat launch ramp. Sites are level and vary in size. Most sites are back in, but there are a few pull throughs right on the water. The campground has two short hiking trails: one goes around part of the lake, and the other goes to a beaver dam which I highly recommend seeing. Fees are $18 per night, and the camp host can take credit cards. Have some cash on hand though as the machine wasn't working when we tried to pay with our card. We fit in site #33 at 52 feet. There are plenty of restrooms (pit toilets) and water faucets. Picnic tables and fire rings are at every site, the sites are level, and the camp hosts sell fire wood. All sites are first come first serve, family friendly and the welcome pets. Canoe rentals $20 for four hours and prices vary for other times; Sign up at the entrance info board for a canoe. You can pay at the entrance info board ,too and camp host also comes to your site. We camped at Tā Ch’ilā Provincial Park (Boya Lake) in a Motorhome.

Take the short hike to the beaver dam. It is really amazing to see. The beavers created a new lake and raised the level about 5 feet from the original lake. All this is easily seen on the hike.

Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park, Liard River, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is very nice. There are no pull troughs and hook ups, but you can walk easily to the hot springs. Many sites have wild raspberry bushes and they are delicious. Large rigs will fit. Site 28 is on a hill, and not good for a large RV. Tent camping and small campers should have no issues with this particular site however. Other sites look really level. Specified generator hours are from 9-11 a.m. and 6-8 p.m. Make a reservation as this campsite is very popular. Your fee to the hot springs is included with your camp fees. The sites are all back in and nestled in the trees. There is a lot of space between sites. Site #28 is not level for long Rv's. The other sites looked level and looked deep enough to accommodate long RV's. There are pit toilets and water faucets in the campground; there is a dump station. Generator hours are 9-11 Am and 6-8 PM so the camp is nice and quiet. We loved it and will for sure stay here again. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Swan Lake Provincial Park, Tomslake, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is very nice and right on the lake. The lake is big and accommodates waterskiing and tube riding along with canoes and fishing prams. It is very clean. All sites have picnic tables and fire rings. There are a variety of site sizes on a first come first serve basis, and all are very level. We were 52 feet long with our trailer and fit just fine with about 4 feet to spare in site #22. They also have double sites that can easily accommodate two RV's. There is also very good fishing in the lake. The camp hosts are friendly and welcoming and come to your site to collect fees. It is cash only, so bring some Canadian money. There is a playground for kids, horseshoe pits, (you may need to bring your own horse shoes or ask camp host if they have some to rent or borrow), and a volleyball net (again you may need to bring your own ball). You can tie your boat up easily and there are plenty of pit toilet rest rooms and water faucets throughout the campground. There are no hook ups at the sites and generator hours are limited to 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening, so the camp is nice and quiet. They are pet friendly, too. I would stay here again. Sites are spacious and there is plenty of room between them. We camped at Swan Lake Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Jasper Gates Resort and RV Park, Hinton, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

A very beautiful campground nestled in the trees and only 17 km from the nearest town of Hinton. Sites are long and can accommodate 40 ft plus RV's with trailers. However, not all sites are level. We had to use our blocks, and we still had a noticeable slant inside. The branches over our site caused us to have to back out of our pull through. There is a building for campers called the Bear Den where you can have a fire going. It has couches, tables and chairs, and a treadmill and a bike for exercising. This is included in your camp fee and open 24 hours. Internet connectivity we were told is very good in that building. They have lots of cabin rentals. I looked in the window of a few and they were really nice. Separate bathroom with showers, small kitchen, tables and chairs, king sized beds, and some had couches. There were places for kids to play, and a field for a family football, soccer, or softball game. Restrooms, showers, and laundry are available, but we didn't use them. The camp store is clean and spacious and sells a few basic camping supplies, offers DVD rentals, and has a warm fire and coffee to greet you. Camp staff is very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. We camped at Jasper Gates Resort and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Balzac Campground RV Park and Storage (formerly Whispering Spruce Camp, Balzac, Alberta

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Average.... Not new, near the road, the plus is that sites are very level and they have pull through and sites that can accommodate 40 ft plus RV's. Staff friendly, courteous and welcoming a great place for a night or two. Spacious and nestled in the trees. Wi fi is slow and inconsistent when everyone in the park wants to use it in the evening. It works best in the morning. We camped at Balzac Campground RV Park and Storage (formerly Whispering Spruce Camp in a Motorhome.

Columbia Falls RV Park, Columbia Falls, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This place is pet tolerant not pet friendly; there are a lot of rules followed by "you will be asked to leave" if you break them. And, the staff is very tense which made us feel unwelcome. We stayed three nights and I always felt rule conscience, so I wouldn't be "asked to leave"--not how I want to relax on my vacation. They want you there before 7:00 p.m. We arrived about 6:30 with another RV who arrived also at the same time. The staff was very tense trying to get each of us checked in and parked so they could close and go home was the impression we got. After reading all the rules, we were shown to our site and were helped to park by a lady who was very tense about getting us and the other group in our spots before 7. I thought her behavior was just for us, but we stayed here three nights, and she was the same way parking another RV beside us the next day. If you have a pet, there is a separate list of rules to follow beyond the pick up after them rule. For example, they can only use the pet area to relieve themselves; bags are provided there; however, if they do go outside your RV you can "be asked to leave". All the sites are in long rows without any walk ways between, and since you can't cut through any sites, (with plenty of signs to remind you) you have to walk to the end of the parking row before you can get to areas in camp like the store/office and the pet area. If you have a pet, get a site near the dog run area. This place has a lot of RV's parked in a finite area, it is very tight, and they utilize every space. It is very clean and quiet; they do have WiFi, but performance was inconsistent, and the campground is about 15 miles from Glacier Park. In the future, I would stay closer to the park at a place with more amenities and an atmosphere that is more welcoming and less like the feeling that they were doing me the favor of allowing me to camp there. We camped at Columbia Falls RV Park in a Motorhome.

This RV park was quiet and easy to get in and out. Sites were level and came with grass and a picnic table. Almost all are pull-through. Laundry room was very clean. $2 to wash and $1 for 30 mins. for the dryer. The park is on the west side of Helena and is close to a grocery store and gas station. They are pet friendly. Staff is very nice and welcoming. We camped at Helena North KOA (formerly Lincoln Road RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Holter Lake Recreation Site, Wolf Creek, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

The Holter Dam Recreation area is a great place to camp if you want to boat, fish, and see some wildlife such as deer and big horn sheep, etc. If not, then this is not the camp ground for you. Don't confuse this with the Holter Lake campground. The sites are all gravel and they can accommodate any size RV. The sites all have fire rings (Host sells wood for $4 a bundle), picnic tables, shade covered structure over the picnic table, and grass. Perfect for pitching a tent. All sites are steps away from the river's edge with a slow current. There is a pit toilet and water spigots. There is plenty of parking and a boat launch ramp with no charge to launch your boat. This area is a favorite place for both residents and guided fishing tours. The cost to camp is $10 per night; it is dry camping, no hook ups and no dump station. There is a two mile dirt road entrance, but it is not too difficult for any rig. The nearest town is Wolf Creek. It is a small town with a few supplies if needed. We stayed three nights in Site #1 which gave us a full view of the river. We camped at Holter Lake Recreation Site in a Motorhome.

Lonesomehurst, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is $16 a night and is right on Hebgen Lake. It has a boat launch ramp and shore access if you want to launch a canoe. Most of the sites are in the trees with a few full to partial sun sites. The campground is small about #28 sites. There are lockers for food if tent camping, pit toilets, and plenty of fresh water. This is a dry campsite, but there are a few (maybe 1 or 2 sites) with electric hook ups. The sites are pretty level and are all back in. There is plenty of space to park your trailer if you are towing a boat or another vehicle. All sites have picnic tables and fire pits. Most sites can accommodate good sized RV . We camped in site #13 with a 32 foot motorhome and fit very well. Some sites are first come first served and some are reservation. You can stay for #16 days. The road in is paved except for the last ¼ mile. Camp hosts are really nice, helpful, and supportive, and they are keen on keeping the camp clean, quiet, and nice. We have camped here twice and will be back again for sure. We camped at Lonesomehurst in a Motorhome.

Lava Spa Motel & RV, Lava Hot Springs, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

This small RV park has 15 sites and it nestled in the trees beside the river. It is centrally located within walking distance of all the town's activities, from the tube rental places for tubing on the river to the Lava Hot Springs Park across the street where you can soak in the hot tubs all day, to restaurants and other parks. The sites come with FULL hook ups and are easy to get in and out of. All sites are back-in except site 15 which looks like a pull-through but is not right on the river. Site 12 is their longest and is about 65 feet. There is ample turnaround area to be able to back in. All sites come with a cement slab for easy step out of your RV. There are no picnic tables, but you can have a campfire if you bring a container. Note: there is also a walk path leaving from the camp to a hot spring right on the river frequented by local residents. We camped at Lava Spa Motel & RV in a Motorhome.
