Kimberley Riverside Campground
Reviewed 14 August 2017

We had a great family reunion at this campground, it was everthing we were hoping for.

We booked a year in advance for our reunion and were able to get a group of us in the area at the top called Sunflower Hill. The spots we were in were not very private but with it being all our family in the sites it didn't matter. These sites have water and power but no sewer hook up. Very close to the main building that has washrooms, laundry and pool.

The pool was great, nice big deck to sit and relax or play ping pong or giant chess game. The pool is gradual entry with a w/c ramp which made it perfect for younger kids to be in more shalllow water.

The showers are free but hot water runs out very quickly.

Free Wi-fi in certain area's of the campground. We happened to be close enough to one of the hotspots that it worked at our site most of the time.

Mini golf is a fun little course located right as you come in to the campground.

If you go down to the bottom of the campground there is a rocky beach along the river. Beautiful spot to sit and cool off. Someone has built rock pools so it's safe to sit without worrying little ones with get washed down the river. There is also a park at the bottom of the campground and an area to have a picnic.

There is lots to do in this area. Biking trails, fishing, hiking, rafting and some great golf courses close by!

If back in the area camping I am sure we would choose this place again!

This place is built for families! Great sites, a POOL, flush toilets, laundry, showers, mini golf, hiking trails, a park (a little dated) and close to town. Love the service, enjoy camping here with the family. Try it out. Book early!

We called an hour before arriving and through the campsite was full, they have non-reservable non-serviced sites for tenting and campers. We got a site immediately for $30 per night and stayed for 3 nights. We were beside the St. Mary river which was gorgeous and sounded amazing. Crystal at the office was incredible and helped us get around the area and assisted with anything we needed.

Privacy was non-existent in the sites we were in but we were able to set up our site so we weren't staring at our neighbors. Pool is very small and shallow but great for kids. Bathrooms/showers and outhouses are very clean and kept up. Tons of lakes around the area to visit. Mini golf was beautiful and fun, challenging enough. Great stay, would stay again!

We had reservations for this campground this weekend but are experiencing a fire in our community. I have just got off the phone with the Riverside Campground and was told they couldn't reimburse us for this weekend. The management said and I quote " I can't help nature"
Seriously...where is your human compassion? We have stayed 3 different times with this campground and will NEVER be back.
You make me shake my head at some of the human race out there.

Dear Shauna R,

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review as it had brought this matter to my attention. I am the only manager here at the Riverside Campground and know that this was not brought to my attention by my staff. I absolutely would have refunded you, especially as it is something completely beyond your control. It was not a case of a conflict in schedule, you forgot about your booking or you simply couldn't come... it was a case of being on an evacuation alert and the last thing you should ever experience during this time is a lack of compassion.

I will be sitting down with the staff member in question as this was completely unacceptable and I will be ensuring this does not happen, ever again.

Although you have specified you have no plans to return, I do hope the gift certificate and refund will help you consider staying with us again. We value every single customer that walks through our door and I hope we renew your faith in us if you give us the chance.

Thank you again for your review and please do reconsider us as we would love to give you great customer service, just like the last 3 times you have stayed with us.

Kindest Regards,
Leanna Winter

We stayed here for an overnight stay in the unserviced tent sites at the bottom of the facility. We felt very safe, everyone was friendly, the pit toilets and plumbed facilities were all very clean and well maintained. The front counter staff were helpful, professional and welcoming. The quiet hours (starting at 11 pm) were observed so we slept soundly.
