Wendy & Graham Check-Ins

Date Place Comment
July 27th, 2021 Deasi Lake RV Park

Full hook-ups. $35 per night. Owner wants to sell as Covid has ruined business, so this place might not exist in the future. Bathrooms and laundry closed. No cell reception or wifi. However, you can park at Northern Lights College (across the highway and to the west, off the service road) and use wifi for free.

July 27th, 2021 Petro-Canada Fuel Station

The sanitation dump station is at the far end of parking lot behind the fuel pumps. $10. You will need to get a key from the attendant. Water also available but you will need your own hose.

July 24th, 2021 Cassiar RV park

$45 for full service pull-through. Also known as Kitwanga River RV Camp. Convenient. Spaces are tight. Level and open. Easy access for big rigs.

July 24th, 2021 Meziadin Lake Prov. Park

Very beautiful place but it might depend on the site you get! Some of the sites are quite crowded as noted by previous Users. We were lucky enough to get Site #46. $27 including electricity. Right on the lakeshore. four grizzly bears came into the campground (Mom and 3 cubs) so take the bear advice seriously! There is no dump station at this campground but a few minutes further north, you can stop at the Petro Canada for a dump. We stayed 2 nights.

July 22nd, 2021 Copperside Laundromat

Easy access from the main highway. Park behind the gas station. Laundromat is part of the same building. $2.50 per load for washing. (Big tubs.) 0.25 for 5 minutes drying. Clean.

July 21st, 2021 Prudhomme Lake Provincial Campground

Definitely open! $20 per night, collected by campsite operator. No water or electricity or showers. We elected to stay here for two nights. We unhitched the truck and drove to Prince Rupert and Port Edward for sight-seeing. Beautiful sites. This is smallish campground so it might be difficult to get a place on the weekends. We managed to get a good cell signal at Site #3.

July 21st, 2021 Tyhee Lake Provincial Park

The BC Provincial Parks are spectacular. Every site at this park is quite secluded from it's neighbour. The fee is a little more expensive than other parks: $27 per night and $7 for electricity. Some sites do not have power hookups so look for those if you want to avoid the electricity fee. It's also $5 for the dump station.

July 21st, 2021 Visitor Center - water and sanidump

Good sani-dump and potable water available behind Visitor centre.

July 20th, 2021 Kleanza Creek Provincial Park

Gorgeous. $20 per night. No sanidump. Water only available by hand pump. But both water and sani-dump available at Visitor Centre in Terrace.

July 19th, 2021 Bear Lake Crooked River Provincial Park

A beautiful BC provincial campground. $22 per night. Sani station available and lots of water spigots. Hot showers $. Easy access from main highway.

July 19th, 2021 Beaumont Provincial Park

Campground with easy access from highway. Lots of sites available on a Sunday. Several people on the beach and launching boats. $22 plus $5 for sani-dump. Peaceful. Cell phone reception OK. Level. (No hookups at sites as noted in an earlier check-in.)

July 16th, 2021 Walmart in Prince George

Easy access to Canadian Tire and BC Liquor and numerous other stores. Wifi also available from Home Depot and Oshcosh. Not strong unless you have an antenna.

July 16th, 2021 Ocean View RV Park

Follow Hwy 39 until you see the big sign at the Ocean View Hotel. Google might take you on a confusing back roads route. Full service for a very reasonable price but a bit out of the way if you are travelling between Prince George and Dawson Creek. The logging operations are interesting. Very friendly staff. Don't go to Site #8: we were nicely set up and levelled and then determined that the circuit breaker was malfunctioning, so no electricity. It took an hour to move to another site and get level again. Grrrrr.

July 15th, 2021 Beaverview RV Park an Campground

The price is the same! $39 for a site with water and electricity. No sewers, which is inconvenient if you stayed a few days, but a dump station is available. The grounds are very tidy. The laundry facilities are super clean. The showers have a vestibule so you do not get your clothes wet. However, the sites are extremely tight. We could not put out both our awning and the slide-out because we would have crowded our neighbours. Uncomfortable. In mid-July, the mosquitoes were about the worst we have experienced anywhere. It was not possible to sit outside. Wifi is good.

July 13th, 2021 Icefield RV Parking

Yes, you must pay $16.01 per night to park here. The park ranger was collecting money from the self-registration kiosk as we arrived. C'mon - pay the fee. It's worth it to visit this spectacular place.

July 13th, 2021 Lake Louise Campground

The price still holds at $33 for sites with electricity. No water at sites, so be sure your tank is full. You can get water at the dump station where there are SIX bays! The site arrangement is unusual - two campers are side-by-side in a big space. Be sure to park close to your designated side or you might be looking into the window of your neighbour's rig. All sites are pull-through. Good cell signal. Very very busy area so plan your visits carefully.

July 10th, 2021 Illecillewaet Campground

Beautiful campground. Starting point for many gorgeous hikes. Still $21.50 per night. Extra for fire permit. No dump station. Nice bathroom. No showers. Enough cell signal for us to use phone as a hotspot and conduct normal wifi activities. Probably too tight for big RV buses.

July 8th, 2021 Kicking Horse

Lovely place with great views, especially in the open section. We were in Site 78. Good cell reception. Easy drive to nearby attractions. Easy access from TransCanada Highway.

July 6th, 2021 Redstreak Campground

A positive experience, as noted by previous Users, in a beautiful campground. We had no trouble using our own phone (Rogers) for a cell signal and hotspot. We got the last serviced site, but next time we'll take our chances because although the campsite fees are modest, you must pay an extra $11 if you reserve online and you must have a parks pass (for day or overnight use). We bought an annual seniors pass for $69 each and this is a great bargain if you want to spend some time visiting national parks.

July 4th, 2021 Lost Lemon Campground

Immaculately clean and organized campground. Full during our stay. Great laundry room, pool and play area for kids. Good riverside walk to stretch your legs. Very tight spacing between sites. Not much room. Very good wifi. Pricy for one night: $50 PLUS $10 reservation fee (even though we telephoned office directly) PLUS $3 for taxes. $66 total, which is not a daily cost we could sustain, bit probably good value for money at this nice campground.

July 4th, 2021 Regency RV Park

Easy access. $35 cash for water/electric. Good level parking. A bit cramped. No dump station. Nothing pretty but well-kept. Hosts met us immediately and helped us back into site. Wifi is good. Bathroom is locked by code. The spacious bathroom facilities are excellent and spotlessly clean.

July 3rd, 2021 Walmart - Medicine Hat

Nine RVs parked in the night. We thanked Customer Services, as usual. Parked at the garden centre and picked up a good wifi signal. Quiet night.

July 1st, 2021 Peanut Hill

Friendly staff- changed our site when we were having problems getting level. Spotlessly clean and modern washrooms and laundry. (Some closure due to Covid.) Excellent wifi. Easy access off TransCanada Hwy. Hwy noise is loud and constant: turn on a fan to create some distraction. $44 plus tax for full hookup.

June 29th, 2021 Wal-Mart Supercentre, Brandon, MB

We checked in at Customer Services and overnights are fine. We can confirm that parking is generally not level and wifi signal is weak. Easy access from the TransCanada Hwy.

June 27th, 2021 Rock garden campground

Peaceful place. $44 per night for full hookup. Great play area for children. Swimming pool not open due to Covid. Good wifi with our booster antenna.

June 26th, 2021 Marie Louise Lake Campground - Sleeping Giant Provincial Park

Spacious campground sites in a very nice setting. $37 plus tax for site with electricity. We found the sites in the 200s to be the most spacious. Separate dump station where you can fill up with clean water as well. Absolutely no cell signal at all at the sites although you can get a weak signal at the beach. Lots of hiking trails. The road into the park is about 40km, each way. So the access is not conveniently off the highway and you might want to consider whether you want to spend the extra time and fuel.

June 26th, 2021 Walmart

Easy access off the TransCanada. Phoned and asked permission. We were nformed that there is no problem staying overnight, in spite of the posted signage. As usual. you will be asked to park away from the front doors. Great wifi.

June 24th, 2021 Riverview Campsite

$40 (cash, including tax) per night for full hookups. Clean, pretty, and well-maintained. Friendly owner. Noise from highway and trains but not significant. Children's play area. Boat launch area. Trail.

June 23rd, 2021 Rest area

This place is not open for overnight camping. 'No camping' and 'No parking from 2300 to 0700' signs are posted.

June 23rd, 2021 Walmart

Asked permission. No problems. Friendly. Five other rigs. Noisy highway. Small WalMart and not a full grocery selection.
