Originally we had just stopped for one night off the highway. But the place offered good views, friendly staff and even great neighbors. We ended up spending 4 days as it was close to the places we wanted to visit in the area. The bathrooms are a bit old but they where always clean. And the staff seem to put...

This place has a lot of potential and we were told it was under new ownership. The kids park has to be at least 20 years old and needs to be filled in (the swings) and updated for sure. The sites were a good size and had lots of trees. IF only you had more of a view of the...

This campground is overrated for what they offer. We have stayed in many campgrounds since we have been on the road since mid-July and this one is the filthiest yet where bathrooms and showers are concerned. The noise isn't their fault but be prepared for it .. Really disturbing

Pulled in here late at night. Sites are great with plenty of space bathrooms were very clean and a hot shower in the morning was the perfect end. Staff are great and price is very affordable. The view along the ridge line is awesome. Can be a bit noisy beside the highway but nothing worth complaining about.

We needed a spot to camp despite the sign saying full. After a short wait in the office/pub, we were greeted by what we thought was an employee, The smell of beer on his breath was a good start. We proceeded to our site. After going below the posted speed limit we almost hit a young child that darted out...

We only stayed one night. Place is obviously older, even the website says so. We camped in a 44' fifth wheel and got into our site no problem. Site was a decent size. Playground is old and very bland. 3 swings and a thing to climb on. Wood is $9 a bundle which is ridiculous. Wifi is good. We found...

You be the Judge ME: Our situation is unique. We are just looking for a place to spend the night on our way to Vancouver. We will be arriving late and leaving early. We will likely need 2 sites. Most campgrounds have asked that we book 2 because we have 8 adults and one child 4yrs of age. We plan...

We spent 10 days tenting at this campsite. Spacious tent spot, nice & warm showers, which were never crowded, wifi at the reception area, did all our laundry and made a nice dinner cooked on the camp fire. From the campsite, one can go hiking in the beautiful surrounding NPs and the town of Golden offers a good bakery and...

The bathrooms are filthy. There was a very disgusting tissue on the counter when I washed up at night, and it was still there the next morning after the guy came out saying that he'd just cleaned. The showers are so filthy I cannot imagine using them. Yuck. Just horrible.
