Beautiful facility, well off the beaten path. Immaculately kept. Friendly and informative staff at check-in. We would definitely stay here again. - Smuchi

Great park - beautiful setting.
Definitely off the beaten path: about 20 miles from the major highway. 70% compressed dirt/gravel, about 30% of it was paved albeit bumpy. The unimproved road was fine. Travelling in 45' MH road was plenty wide for 2 wide including encountering a big truck.
The sites are huge! Long pull throughs with 30 amps. It wasn't warm enough to need AC. Plenty of room to park car and spread out.
Theres a nice group area, restaurant at the lake and amenities on the lake. Free Canoes, boats and other playground area for kids well away from the camping area.
Theres about 25 chalets that are also for rent. The campground is about a 5 minute walk from the lake. But its a scenic lit path.
If you're in a big rig, suggest you come thru Clearwater as the entry from the south is even longer dirt path. Took about 30 minutes. There is a bridge and RR tracks but both very improved so no worry about bottoming out on RR tracks in this very rural setting, and no problem with height on the bridge. Also, all trees on dirt road were well away from the road
Even got Direct Satellite here, but didn't use it often as the scenery was so great. Would come back again for sure. - Big Rigger

This is the finest park we've ever stayed in. It is primarily an up-scale Resort, with 28 log cabins situated on a private lake in deep woodlands near Clearwater, BC. They also have a top-notch RV park, with ten looong paved pull-throughs and eight big gravel back-ins. All sites are dead-level, surrounded by expansive perfect lawns and a few trees. All roads are paved, and all sites are full-service. The one pair of bathroom are great, with free hot showers. Amenities include a single restaurant ($$$), free boat and canoe usage, kids' playground, fishing, covered picnic areas, self-serve BBQs, and hiking trails. No cell service, but the free WiFi signal is strong everywhere (although the satellite Internet connection can be slow). Views of the surrounding mountains are also free. Now the only downside: the location is 13 miles from town, half of it rough pavement, and half graded dirt. It is also up a couple thousand feet of steep climbing, which might heat up your transmission if you haul a big rig. I wouldn't recommend this as an overnight stop if you are traveling through, but if you plan to stay put and enjoy the wonderful amenities in this quiet, beautifully-maintained park, then I highly recommend it. - Doug Atterbury

My family had an amazing time!!! After reading prior reviews we were kind of sceptical but heard they were under new management so thought we would give it a try instead of staying in one of our local over populated provincial campgrounds.
When booking I spoke to one of the owners. I received a very quick response which was nice. She was very kind and helpful, did not just quickly end the call with have a great day but treated you as a friend not a customer.
Upon arrival we were very impressed with how much work and care had been done to get the campground up and running again compared to a lot of reviews we had read about management and image.
The new owners are staying at the campground all summer
To make sure everyone who comes has a great time.
My family loved it sooo much we prebooked 2 more trips throughout the summer. - Lamoureux Family

We did not stay here after all. We found this campground from their beautiful interactive website and made a reservation. What a disappointment when we got there. First there was no signage so it was hard to find. At the entrance to the camp there was a small hand painted sign, so we had to make a rapid turn in. Down an awful road we came to the camp. Grass hadn't been cut, junk everywhere, and not a soul around. We walked around, looked at the supposed campsites and decided to look elsewhere for accommodation. Sad that this place is portrayed so beautifully on the web it puts expectations high which makes reality even more of a disappointment. - agility mom

I tried to get into other campgrounds/RV Parks in the area but they were closed until May. I found this one, the guy that was on site, was happy to help us, and found a great spot looking across the mountains. The river walk was great which there was two different ones, they had a few things to buy, food, drinks on site, plus if you walk 5 minutes you can go to the General store for all the stuff you need, GAS, which was very handy, and the prices where excellent too. I was surprised to find WI-Fi here too being in the middle of nowhere. I will definitely stay here again. They seem happy enough to let your dog off leach as long as its out the main area of the campground, What I also liked about the place is, and also explained to us is that its in a banana belt, so they get less rain/wind/snow, and more sun, as the clouds slip off around that area of the campground, crazy eh! - Tracey M Issio

The roads within the campground are a little hard to discern. Many low-hanging branches required paying close attention when driving through, accessing the site, etc. My site (#9) was spacious and had a nice mix of sun and shade. It's quite close to the highway so there's some noise, but you can't see the highway because of the dense growth of trees. The only WiFi available is at the golf clubhouse. Apparently the owners have tried to extend it to the campground but have been told the numerous trees create too much interference. If you need to use the sani-dump when you leave, it can be difficult to access because there's not a large turning area. And the aforementioned low-hanging branches present a challenge. This park, though south of town, provides easy access to North Thompson River and Wells Gray Provincial Parks. - lvdogs

This is really a nice little campground. We've often found that RV parks associated with golf courses are quite nice and this one is no exception and the price can't be beat. There are no showers but two sites have full hookup and there is a sani station as well. There are 40 or 50 sites and when we were there only about 5 were occupied, so there was plenty of 'elbow room'. There are sites in the shade and ones more open. there is free Wi-Fi which actually worked, that can't be said for lots of RV parks. When you arrive you register at the clubhouse then drive a good gravel road through the golf course to the campground. Kind of strange but it works. There is some road noise, but not bad and a train goes by not too far away about every 4 hours during the day. We would stay here again. - cachencouple

Only two sites had sewer hookups and they were already booked. Excellent combination golf and camping rate. They have a nine hole course but we had unlimited all day play on it for 2 people, with cart, and overnight camping for $100.00. Additional night camping was $25.00. Ate dinner in the clubhouse. New owners are very friendly and customer focused. - User3508

This campground appears to be closed. There was a chain across the driveway and a "For Sale" sign up when we passed by. - Doug Atterbury

The road to the pull-through sites is difficult to negotiate with a big rig. Sites are fairly level, treed but dirt surface. They would probably be muddy in the rain. Dump station by the showers. If you want a place that's away from it all, this will do. They also offer horseback rides. - Thedogsma

The owner at the front desk was very friendly during our check-in. The maintenance staff throughout the park are very friendly as well. The park is in dire need of some pavement as the gravel roads make for very dusty conditions. The laundry is an absolute disgrace, dirty machines, many machines out of service. The playground was well enjoyed by my 4 year old. The pool wasn't open yet in mid-May. I would stay here again as there is no other choice for 50 amp pull-through sites near Clearwater. However, the Wells-Gray Provincial park is absolutely stunning and this park has easy access. - MattfromAB

We stayed here two separate times, about two weeks apart when passing through, but mainly because of the paucity of reasonable competition. If this park were not helped by KOA affiliation and in a popular area I feel it would be somewhat empty. It was expensive for the level of amenities, and I was less than impressed to have neither cable nor usable WiFi. Sites are basic, not well laid out, and vary greatly in quality from average to poor. No pavement and dirty gravel at sites. The laundry was not clean nor well maintained. There was no supervision of the inconsiderate and noisy campers. I see another person has commented on the "bear fence" and believe it not to be electrified nor capable of keeping out any healthy bruin. It might make the European RVers feel better. I would stay here again as there is no other choice for a quick overnight stay at Clearwater. - BMonk

The KOA at Clearwater is a very versatile “campground”. It has lots of places for RV’s, trailers, cabins, and Condo units. WiFi was OK, not great. Most sites were separated by shade trees and bushes and fairly level. They have a decent supply store, and a restaurant. The perimeter has a safety electric fence keeping bears out. The entrance gate is closed at 10pm, also keeping bears out. Staff were friendly and helpful. A good place to stay for white water rafting, and touring Wells Gray Park – a must to visit in this area. - Funpro

The nightly fee is Canadian funds. Nothing special about this park. It was quiet and well maintained. Too many trees for Satellite or Internet to work. There were lots of mosquitoes. - rolling homeless

This park has extremely long level sites, but is the most expensive so fr on our trip (3 months so far) @ $42 Cdn for full hookup. RV park is in the tree which is nice on those hot (37C) days.
Bathrooms / showers were free and okay. They need to be cleaned more than once a day. Didnt use the pool.
I would stay here again as on other park in the area was "cheek by jowel". - DCM/JMB

Most (all?) sites only have 30 amp and water, with a couple of shared dump stations. But, we bumped the score because of the the staff and cleanliness. They run a tight ship and keep the place in good shape, and will help you with reservations, laundry money, directions or whatever (like cardboard for a broken window). The setting is lovely and there is a 9 hole golf course to boot. The course is not top quality, but quite good considering the remoteness and you'd be hard pressed for a better setting. All sites were gravel back-in with plenty of room, a fire pit, and a good quality plastic table, 1/2 of them backing up to a lovely creek. Their location is ideal for exploring Wells Gray, without having to haul your rig to the end of the long dirt road to the park campgrounds. - darwinmoore

Campground was most attractive (adjacent to a golf course) and we had a W&E only site right next to a rapidly flowing (and rather full) small river. Our spot was in full sun, but many of the other campsites where among large trees that provided nice shade. Our mid-June visit also coincided with arrival of a substantial mosquito population! (Be forewarned.) This park is about 21 miles north of Clearwater from the junction Clearwater Valley Road with the main highway. Both Google Maps and My GPS gave seriously wrong locations based on the street address (but the Lat. and Long. coordinates are correct). Note that this RV Park is just outside the gateway/border("Boundary Road") of Wells Gray Provincial Park. While this location added some travel time off our main route, it was well worth the side trip. The staff was pleasant and gave suggestions about local attractions. - Pete_by_the_river

Park is adjacent to golf course and has special 'Stay and Play' rates. Next to Wells Gray Park about 35 km north of Clearwater. Very relaxed atmosphere and challenging golf course. Great place for a 3 day stay. - lrp374

This campground has sites for most every size of RV including our 35 ft fifth wheel and truck. It is at the end of the paved road in Wells Gray Provincial Park although a 1 km packed gravel road connects it to the paved road. The back-in gravel sites are fairly private with trees all around. No hook-ups or dump station and only one hand-operated water pump for the campground. The mosquitoes chased us inside, but other people seemed to know how to coexist with them. There are additional campgrounds further north on the gravel road, but I would not take my fifth wheel there due to potholes although many rental class C RVs went that way. The campsite was a good location from which to explore the park. If more amenities are preferred, the Wells Gray Golf Resort is nearby although we did not visit it. - GypseaHeart

This is the first (and last) campground from Clearwater with paved road access. Sites are large (many double sites), well groomed, and very private. Pit toilets, no running water (hard to use hand pump). Very nice park, with many beautiful falls nearby. Few mosquitoes. We would camp there again in a trailer for a few days. The park is remote, but worth the trip. - jboyer

A Campground too far. We stayed in Falls Creek which is right next to Clearwater campground. Both campgrounds are near the lake, but it is a 67km drive from the information center, 25k on a very rough gravel road. The campground itself was nice, spacious sites, plenty of trees in between sites, and level sites. However, most of the parks attractions (waterfalls) are back up the gravel road 15-25k, So we spent most of our time driving back and forth on the rough gravel road in our Jeep. Had we stayed somewhere else, we could of done more hiking and less driving. So unless you really want to spend most of your time at the lake, find somewhere else to stay. There was a golf course/campground very close to where the paved road ended that looked very nice and it had hookups. Most of the other campers where in rentals that drove in one day and left the next. We have a 35' foot motorhome. It took two hours to drive the 25K gravel road. - donaldh

Park roads and sites gravel. Other than one pull-through, all sites were back-in. A couple of small cabins were available for rent. Our site was long enough for a big rig, but most sites were not. The picnic tables had recently been refinished. At the south end of the campground was a Nature House, but it was closed. The bridge over Falls Creek was gone which meant the trail was cut between this campground and the Falls Creek campground. There is a seasonal store at the entrance to the campground, but it was closed during our stay. There were showers (cost $2) in the back of the building. Bear proof garbage and recycle containers which are the norm for most BC parks. A viewing platform on the river a good place for fishing, but strictly catch and release now. A trail across the road from the campground climbed up to a lookout. We would stay here again if in the area. - Onemoretrail

We organized a 40th anniversary/family reunion at this resort by renting two cabins and one RV site for our 45' DP coach. It was perfect - something for all ages from playing at the lake to hiking to amazing waterfalls. We had RV spot #2, a full hookup site (30 amp) very close to the cabins. As the property is tiered most site have a view of the lake. - John from YVR

Very nice setting with an excellent view. See lake/mountains image taken about 10 yards from our site. The park is laid out so you look at the lake through your windshield. Our site was not level so we just moved back and added an extra hoses. I did raise the front of the RV with 6" of blocks to get it level. So minus 1 point for site prep. However I had a shaded site and a view of the lake. Reasonable internet speeds as a Verizon user. - cherib

We said Wow! when we arrived. Beautiful RV and tent resort on the banks of Dutch Lake. Our back in site had a great view of the lake and mountains. Very relaxing and peaceful. Are we coming back again? Absolutely! - SotoL-L
