Date Place Comment
July 17th, 2019 Large "natural pit" area

Lot of flowers, beautiful! Also pretty quiet but other than that nothing special.

July 16th, 2019 Kluane Museum

You have to buy a ticket to the museum to use the washrooms (museum open from 9 to 5:30). But it's worth it, very nice little museum, mainly about the animals of the Yukon. The night was OK, there is not much traffic but since it's right beside the highway you hear every car that passes by. We also heard coyotes cry in the middle of the night!

July 15th, 2019 Next to HWY to/from Haines

Nice view and pretty quiet. Lots of space!

July 14th, 2019 Road to nowhere

When we got here we scared a bear away ;)

July 13th, 2019 Nares Mountain Trailhead

Not far from Carcross in the hills. Small parking lot for trailhead, room for 2 vans. Not recommended for rv's because you have to drive on a narrow sand road. Not very level. No amenities.

July 12th, 2019 French Creek Recreation Site

There are 4 official spots with picnic tables but there is room for many more rv's. You hear the highway but there's not much traffic. Not too many mosquitos!

July 11th, 2019 Rest Area at Grand Canyon Stikine River, Viewpoint

Good place, nice view and clean pit toilet with paper. The wind was VERY strong when we were here (on the upside, that meant no mosquitos ;))

July 11th, 2019 Stikine River Song

Closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays :( Also, the road is currently closed due to a washout, but you can walk 800m from the main road.

July 11th, 2019 Northern Lights College Free Wifi

Stopped here to receive messages. WiFi is still working today!

July 10th, 2019 Rest Area by Lake

The spots along the highway are level, the spots at the lake aren't but have a nicer view and are somewhat quieter.

July 9th, 2019 Hyder - OK

Quiet spot with nice views. The path is incredibly overgrown at the moment. You'll need a small car and not care about scratches in the paintwork.

You cannot make it to the second spot further up the road as some people suggested. We went in about 300m before getting stuck.

July 9th, 2019 Salt water pond

This spot is overgrown with 1m high grass. We thought it wasn't suitable anymore.

July 8th, 2019 Cassiar RV park

RV Park with all the necessities. Friendly owners. $1 for 5 min shower. Pretty good wifi (when you're close to the building)

July 7th, 2019 U seefood U eat it

Great little seafood restaurant at the end of the Nass valley. They serve fried food mostly, but it tastes great. Run by a friendly native couple that likes to tell all about their culture.

July 7th, 2019 Nisga'a Highway to Gingolx

Basic spot to overnight. Quiet at night because nearly no one drives the highway to ginglox.

July 6th, 2019 Kitsumkalum Provincial Park

Nice spot with beautiful views over the lake. Very busy on this Saturday night. Be prepared for about a million mosquitos... And please keep the pit toilet tidy, how hard is it to NOT throw tp on the ground?

July 5th, 2019 Butze Rapids Trail

Very close to the ferry, so good before or after your long trip. Nothing special. It was quiet even though its next to the highway.

July 4th, 2019 VI - Port Hardy

As said before, pretty basic place to overnight and catch the ferry the next morning. The view over the bay during sunset is beautiful.

July 3rd, 2019 Lower Klaklakama Lake Rec Site

Incredible spot to stay multiple days. However, this is only true for the single spot with a clear view of the lake. The other spots are small and have no view. The lake is not too cold so good for a swim!

July 2nd, 2019 Qualicum Beach

View-wise one of the best spots on the island. Many locals stroll along the beach. However, the road is very noisy the whole day and night. There were about 15 other vans and RVs parked along the beach for the night. Toilets close at 8pm.

July 1st, 2019 Landfill/Forest service road

Many pull offs along the road, plenty of them were in use during the night. Most of the forest has been logged so not much shade. During the day logs were being readied for transport, no one bothered us though.

June 30th, 2019 Dutch Import Store

You can buy hagelslag, ontbijtkoek, sambal, appelmoes, drop, very expensive but REAL cheese and much more :)

June 30th, 2019 Sproat Creek

Busy place with a couple of vans. Relatively quiet even though the highway is just across the river.

June 30th, 2019 Drinking water tap

Along the lake there are several taps. You can't park your car directly next to it so you have to carry your tanks and bottles a bit.

June 29th, 2019 Lewis centre / showers

Closes at 4 pm in weekends! The outdoor pool is open longer and also has (communal) showers

June 27th, 2019 Courtenay Riverway Park

Good spot with a nice view. Quiet at night. A lot of people hang out in their cars here. There were a couple of other vans and RVs parked for the night. The pit toilet is still there!

June 26th, 2019 Snaw Naw As Campground

Only 11,25 CAD for a tent site not directly at the shore (we stayed on it with our van). Free hot showers. Toilet buildings are old and not really clean. Many permanent residents.

June 24th, 2019 Harbor, Vicotria Downtown - ok

Good spot close to down town. The noise of the seaplane base is not too bad. There are pit toilets on the parking lot and public toilets around the corner (open until 23:00).

June 23rd, 2019 Mt. Work parking lot south

Quiet parking lot. Sign states that the park is closed at night but a local assured us that no one would bother us.

June 19th, 2019 Side road off of Cleakamus RD.

Forest Road with many pull offs. May be difficult to find a level spot. Many locals use this road to walk their dogs. We saw bears in the evening!
