The reason for the very low rating on this campground is the campground caretaker. This person didn't come around to collect the fee until 10:30 p.m. She was rude, over charged from what the posted fee was, she told us we couldn't stay at the site we had chosen because it was reserved, but no reserve sign was on it when we got there at 3p.m. She said someone had called that day and reserved it. We had planned to stay 3 days but after being treated like that we went on down the road the next day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The site is near the Alaska and Hart Highways at the edge of town, noisy from truck traffic slowing down. Sloped gravel sites, close together. Friendly checkin, and mostly long term residents at this time of year. Washrooms and showers are decrepit and dirty. Overall, this was the most expensive and crummiest campground in 7,000 km from south to north and back in Western Canada. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice campground in the center of town. Convenient to everything, it has grassy sites, trees (but not so many your satellite doesn't work!), and a friendly staff. The free Wi-Fi works if you take your laptop/ipad to the office and use it there - otherwise forget it! There are less expensive sites, but we wanted a pull-through and apparently you pay for that convenience. Overall, we'd recommend this park and would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
50 amp sites were very uneven to the point of us not ever getting our 45’ motorhome level. Lifted the wheels off the ground on one side and pitched toward the front. Mostly over-nighters passing through. Could not find a handicapped restroom or shower so did not use either. Showers were quite small. No fencing and open on all sides. Right on the Alaskan Hwy, but our filters drowned out most of the highway noise, but not the motorcycles. Wi-Fi only worked intermittently, over the air TV was one channel and no cable. This is a good place to fill up on water and clean out your tanks for travel down the Alaska Hwy but not a destination spot. Price seemed high for the little that was offered, but the demand is high this time of year, so they can demand, and get, whatever. May have to stop again on the way back to Texas but will certainly take a 30 amp to be somewhat level and only stay one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park itself was nice. Trees, grass, spaced out decent so you aren't right on top of one another. Picnic tables at the sites, etc. But the bathrooms/showers/laundry were really gross. They remind us of an old, public bathroom in a city park. You know the ones you never want to take your kids to? Smell like...yeah. We are on a 5,000 mile trip, and needed to do laundry and wash up... but decided that it all needed to wait until the next stop. If you have a self-contained RV and only need a place to park and hook-up, you are good. If you need to use the amenities, keep driving. We wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Best campground out of what was offered in Dawson Creek. We stayed two nights, due to some auto problems,on our way north. Staff very friendly. We also stayed here on our way back south. Level lot in back first visit...quiet. We had the sloping site on our return trip and you could hear the trucks as the sites are very close to the highway. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a fifth wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
WiFi is terrible in this park! It fades in and out. Located right on the highway: noisy. Across from business with 18-wheelers rolling in and out all day. Worker bees living here come in and out like the road is a freeway. Dust flying everywhere. Two washers and dryers. Wouldn't stay here again. Would go back to previous park to get away from the dust, have better WiFi, and cable TV. That said, the sites are fairly level with grass in between and newer picnic tables. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly staff. Good Internet and you can use the city provided Internet available from Pioneer Park right next door. Some sites have big slopes, so position on a site is critical. We were on the row facing the office, 50 amp full hookup pull-through. The toad must be removed because the flattest part of the site is the rear, which is fine. I'd return unless offered some of the really sloped sites, which there are several. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is by far the best campground in Dawson Creek, but that is not saying a lot. The sites are decent but close to the road. Restrooms and showers are tolerable but should be better for a city owned campground. It is a good starting point for the Alaska Highway. We would stay here again as there is no other acceptable choice in Dawson Creek, BC. Most sites are level enough, but some are impossible for RVs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We probably had the best site in the park: #1. No one out our front door. Site was fairly level unless you pulled way forward. Park is not well-maintained. Restrooms were OK, not great. Called ahead for a reservation, told we would be in Site 46. Got here and there was no record of that. He did find a spot. Very busy park but staff not very organized, or knowledgeable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We are staying here for one night and have a pull-through site that is not level and very muddy. However they have had a lot of rain today. Wi-Fi has been very good and fast; no complaints about that. Would stay here again if passing through, received Good Sam rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are staying here for 4 nights waiting for another couple to join us for convoy to Alaska. We also stayed here based on the comment in Church's book that 'this is the nicest park in Dawson City'! Hate to see the rest if this is the nicest! The sites are not level and very narrow. More dirt than gravel and we have rain in the forecast! Yikes. Wi-fi is just so-so and TV reception is terrible. The one channel that comes in OK is French! Park really needs cable. We have 30 amp but cannot use toaster or microwave unless everything else is off. Right next to a highway but it does quiet down at night. Also rail road tracks nearby. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
No cable, Wi-Fi fair, sites fairly stable but narrow between units. Laundry okay. Restrooms awful! Mold in showers, smelled dirty and just gross! They need a major updating. We did see the other three campgrounds but none of them are fancy. Three sites across from us had no respect for their fellow campers. Loud partying, people singing, playing music, and laughing, talking yelling, cars and trucks coming and going all night well after 1:00 a.m. I did not seem to be anyone " in charge" after about 8:00 p.m., so quiet hour was non existent. Supposedly quiet hour is 11:00 p.m. May try one of the other parks on our way back through. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
They were in the process of painting and super cleaning the rest rooms, so not sure how they will look later on in the season. It was OK to use them while we were there. The sites were gravel and fairly level. The issue we had was the sewer drain was too high making it difficult to drain. Some of the sites had the hook -ups far to the rear, so make sure you check out the site prior to pulling in (they were not busy so we could pick our site). We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price (in Canadian funds) reflects a GoodSam discount. Nice park at the start of the Alaska Highway. Both pull through and back in sites available. Even big rigs with multiple slide outs should fit. Sites are dirt and somewhat unlevel. There is plenty of grass between sites where we parked for the night. Showers and washrooms need a good cleaning or updating. Dump station available. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have to have a clean bathroom and shower area, and this campground had neither. It was wet and rainy for the two days we were here, and there was much humidity. However, because of inadequate or no ventilation system, water was streaming down the walls of the bathroom, shower, on the floor, and even on the ceiling (which fell down on your head when you were taking a shower). There was mold growing on the walls of the bathroom. You can tell that there was an attempt to clean the bathroom area, but the whole area had a "seedy" feeling. The trees were pretty and staff was nice. But the place was generally unkempt and dirty. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We were disappointed in our extremely uneven site; many of the sites in here are not level. Fairly unkempt looking: grass not mowed. Laundry room has 4 washers and only 2 working dryers. Office personnel seem indifferent as to whether a repairman will ever show up. No hanger bar for clothes. Cannot recommend to anyone; sorry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The host was friendly and the utilities were good, so the park functions well enough as an overnight stop. Roads within the park are in very bad shape, uneven and potholed. Sites are not level. Both laundry and restrooms were old and unclean. The price reflects the Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Poor wifi range. We were only one row from the office and we couldn't pick it up. The bathrooms/showers were clean, but in need of a facelift. The sites were pretty level and were pretty easy to get in and out of. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very convenient location with very helpful people. We liked our site. The showers were clean but need a little TLC and paint. The whole campground needs a little TLC in fact. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped in pull space 73. The exit from the space was on a fairly steep grade and we were unable to use it for fear of dragging the rear of our trailer. The sewer outlet was actually uphill from the trailer and made it difficult to discharge waste. The campground facilities were in a state of dilapidation. We would not return to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I called ahead and made reservations for a full hookup with 50 amp service. They gave me a water and poor 30 amp site that was not close to level. When I tried to level, I ended up with my bottom step almost 2 feet up. I had to lift my Rottweiler up and carry him down off the steps. Sites had overgrown weeds and were poorly maintained. I moved to another site that I barely had room to extend my slides. Employees were courteous and as helpful as they could be under the circumstance. Unless other campgrounds were not available, I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nothing special except you have finally reached the Alaska Highway. We stayed two nights. People coming and going. Sites not level, access roads a bit narrow so people challenged to back in. Not much road noise. I agree that they need more than 4 washers and 4 dryers for a park this size, particularly since they open at 8.30am and close at 9pm. Would stay there again for a break. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They pack them in here. WiFi was good and this park is close to town for sight seeing. There is lots to see and do in Dawson Creek. Everything worked well (electric, water, WiFi, etc.) Saw lots of folks using the showers and laundry although we did not. Most sites are small but good for an overnight. We would stop again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for full hookup 30 amp pull-through with Good Ssam discount. Used this park as a staging area for a summer trip to Alaska, along with nearly everyone else who was there. There are a few semi-permanents, but all sites are well kept. Almost all sites require some degree of leveling. Keep an eye out for the park entrance if approaching on 97 from the direction of Dawson Creek, as the sign is back off the highway and you're there before you realize it. Some pull-through sites, ours included, have branches that will hit the RV as you pull out, and should have been trimmed. Laundry was not open in the evening. All in all, a nice, clean, well run park that we would definitely stay at again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has spacious, well-spaced sites. Even though it is close to Highway 97 (the Alaska Highway) the highway noise is barely noticeable. The only improvement I would have for this park is the addition of more washers and dryers. This is a large park and when it is at least two-thirds occupied the number of washers and dryers (4 each) does not seem to be sufficient for the number of people who would be using them. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an older park with a combination of pull-through and back-in sites. All interior roads and sites are gravel. There are several satellite-friendly big-rig sites located near the park entrance, although power is limited to 30 amps. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We pulled in around 1:00 pm and the person that checked us in was put out by the fact that we interupted his lunch. While checking in the person was complaining about all the dogs and their owners. We did not feel very welcome. The sites are not level, but this seems like the best place to stay while in Dawson Creek. We will be staying here for 2 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is an older campground and well maintained. The gravel sites are not real level so be prepared to level your rig. There are shaded sites and grass separates the sites. It is on the out skirts of the town so one has to drive your vehicle if you decide to do any shopping. Caravans use this campground. The people were friendly and helpful. We did not use the laundry facilities. We would stay there again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located right off the main road in a park. Nice setting but on a hillside, not all sites were level. Wifi did not work when we stayed, they said it would be fixed the next day. Nice hookups and pullthroughs. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall it is a pretty nice park, but most sites are not very level. I saw more motorhomes with the tires elevated off the ground that I have ever seen in one park (this is not good for the MH frame as it stresses it too much). Per other reviews, sites are tight. Not many alternatives in Dawson Creek, this is probably one of the best if not best park in town. A word of caution is to call ahead, a lot of caravans start from this point. We were in one and came in three days early, 4 different caravans were here. Dawson Creek is wonderful, go into town and walk around. Check out the murals all over, make sure to check the alley next to the Alaskan Inn (55 paces south of mile post 0) and walk to the end of it. With a Safeway card and food purchase you get a 7 cent per liter discount on fuel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this park for two nights as we were passing through. It was OK for a one or two night stand, but the sites are extremely close together. The neighbor's sewer connection was about 4 feet from our door - uck! Of course, our sewer connection was also very close to the neighbor on the other side. The Wi-Fi worked OK, but was a little slow. We would probably stay here again, but only for a one-nighter passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had site #13A, a level, gravel back-in with 20 amp electric and water and some shade. We had neighbors fairly close on both sides but it wasn't too bad and the site was big enough for our 30 ft class A and toad. The park was nearly full the afternoon we arrived so we were glad to have a spot. This park looks much better than the two other RV's parks very close to it. We were very happy with the free Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well maintained park with free WiFi. There are only 4 sites with sewer hook ups but there is a dump station. There is a swimming lake adjacent to the property. There is no cable tv available but a nice clean setting. We were able to keep our tow vehicle attached to our big rig on our overnight stay. I would give this park a 10 if it had sewer at every site and cable tv, thus the grade. I did not use the showers or laundry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice park, probably the nicest one in the area; the owners are working very hard to keep it well maintained and managed. Problems with the WiFi were being corrected; owner mentioned they might have to have a new system installed. Gravel lot can be quite muddy when it rains; be prepared to take your shoes off to enter restrooms and laundry area. Park is frequently used by caravan groups and there are a few full-time workers living here. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground has gravel roads and sites with a bit of grass (in the summer). WiFi works moderately well. Laundry and shower facilities were excellent. The parks fills quickly during tourist season. We were part of a group of 23 motorhomes gathering for a tour. There was another group there as well. It is a great place from which to start a tour of the Alaskan highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good stop at the beginning of the Alaska Hwy. Everything worked as advertised although the 2 days were we here they were having Wi-Fi issues. It worked but at times was painfully slow. They had a technician working on it for more than a day. Friendly, helpful current owners, easy in and out of pull-through sites. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We would return in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I checked in with a reservation. After paying I asked if that was the Good Sam rate. The attendant stated no, and she took no action to change my reservation. The bathrooms/showers were very clean. The showers were coin operated, something I had not seen in many years. It was quite windy at this location. I doubt if I will stop here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice park. The folks, who run the place, took very good care of us, and pointed out all the tourist information for the area. It is well located and very quiet. We definitely would stay here again We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There is a sign on the door to the laundry/shower/restroom building that says "no street shoes allowed beyond this point". When I entered I totally understood why. These are the nicest glass enclosed shower stalls I have ever seen in a campground. The laundry room was also immaculate and their prices are very reasonable on washers and dryers. Check-in staff was very friendly and helpful. Spots are large, most are pull through, but they are gravel. Water, elec, and sewer hookups are located for easy access and power was 120vAC with no fluctuations during our two day stay. Wi-Fi was strong and very fast. The young couple that own this park now are working hard to add improvements. Trees have been planted, landscaping is in progress and grass is planned. We will stay here every time we are in Dawson Creek. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 2 nights in the middle of winter. Didn't get to meet anybody because all of our reservation / transactions were done by phone. Super friendly and helpful folks. Site was cleared of snow and water, power, everything working. WiFi was strong and super fast. The best place we have stayed this winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There may be friendlier park owners but we have not met them. Fairly new owners (husband and wife and we met wife) of an older park that they are upgrading. The have put in a new building containing individual rooms each with restroom/shower (immaculate tile floors/walls and glass door shower and pedestal sink!), a sizeable laundry facility, and a meeting space aimed at caravans. Wi-Fi was speedy (nearly 3 mb tested speed) and cable TV worked well. Limited channels (2-13) but more that adequate for a couple of days stay. Apparently the owner has added Wi-Fi repeaters to provide excellent service. Owner was very helpful with information about the area in the event we wanted to stay longer. Spaces appeared to be double-wide and our rig was level when we pulled in. Utilities were appropriately placed and sewer was close to ground for thorough dump. Nice views of the surrounding countryside. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large gravel spaces, good valley views, friendly owners. One of the best laundry rooms ever. I didn't use the showers but they look as good as any nice hotel. Strong Wi-Fi and cable TV. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here as part of a caravan. Would not stay again. Sites are small and unlevel. The site next to ours had no seating area so we had to share ours. Owner required guests to remove their shoes to use the laundry or meeting room! Wi-Fi signal is weak and Internet is very slow. We would have been happier staying in the parking lot of the local WalMart. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice Park, sites small and gravel only. Owner/managers very friendly and helpful. Downside, laundry is overpriced as are the pay showers. Would we stay again, but not if we didn't need full hookups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. Nice host. Lots of oil/gas workers staying there, so be ready to be woke up at 5:30am with trucks starting. Good water pressure and electric. Good WIFI, Cable was grainy, but it just rained. We'd stay here again. We stayed in a 5th wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate reflects a 30 amp site with a 10% AAA discount. This is a very convenient campground just outside of town on Highway 97 South. We had a site further back in the campground so road noise was not a big issue, although it could be heard. The WiFi signal was very strong and relatively fast. There are few trees so satellite was possible, although it is very low in the sky up this far north. Our Verizon phone had a strong signal. The woman that checked us in was very nice and helpful in pointing out where to find things to stock up in Dawson Creek. The laundry room was very clean. This is not a destination park, but a great place to stay for an overnight on your journey. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Office staff are very friendly and eager to accommodate your needs. Sites are mostly gravel pull-thrus, some sites are grassy, nicest sites are blocked off, suspect Caravan coming through. Rate reflects AAA/FMCA discount of 10%. Early in season so not any dust issues. Laundry, Showers and Club House appear to be in new building which is keep immaculate, washers are $3 and driers are $2, Loony for a shower room. Stayed here for 3 nights in a 34' Motorhome towing on our way to Alaska. Good place to stock up as you head North. Would stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owner very friendly and although we arrived late in the day, and most of the spaces available at this time of year were occupied, he found space for us. But we only had power. He saw to it that we were able to fill up with water and were able to dump our tanks. Had to stay longer than planned due to weather and he let us pay a day at a time. The restrooms were very nice; although, I think it is wrong to have to pay to use showers when we already were paying $40 a night for just power hookup. Lots of snow melting so was quite muddy. It seems BC towns don't use much pavement, only gravel. Would stay here again as everything was clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very tightly packed campground with barely enough space to get parked in some sites. Was told I had pull-through site but vehicle barely fit unless unhitched. Construction site next door and was very loud at 5am. Poor wifi signal even near office. Very nice bathrooms but cost $1.00 per minute for showers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The brand new bathrooms are nice, but it really irritates me that I have to pay extra to take a shower when I am already paying $40 for the site (which includes unlimited water and electricity). Why not charge to use the toilets too? The site was $40, plus two 6 minute showers makes it $44. This park is overpriced in my opinion considering the remote location (way out of town). Their internet service is insufficient for the demands of 50+ users and consequently is slow to the point of being barely usable. It is directly on the 97 and the road noise at the front of the park is really bad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with outstanding shower facilities. Owners friendly and helpful, polite and considerate. We plan on staying here again on our way back from Alaska. Definitely customer oriented. Highly recommended! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has very strict rules (like having to remove your shoes to enter bathrooms or laundry), but they are immaculate. The bathroom/shower are individual rooms with new glass-door shower stalls and fixtures. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The park is on the bluff which keeps the sites from becoming muddy during heavy rainfall, which was the case at other parks while we were in town. We would highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a decent park that has some potential, but it is still a work in progress. More attention needs to be given to the roads and sites as the gravel is quite sparse. I was a little concerned because the site that I was given had an electric pedestal with no circuit breaker, just a 30 amp plug in a small box. I had no problems with it, but it was a concern. The location is on a hill, and the winds were quite strong while we were here. Awnings and satellite dishes banged around quite a bit. This is a caravan stop and large groups can and do show up regularly. Check for a reservation if it is in the summer months. We checked in and got the last site available for more than 1 night. The hosts are very helpful and friendly. Since it is close to the highway, as most parks in BC seem to be, there is always road noise present. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground seems to be a nice work in progress, but a bit pricey for what they have thus far. Very private coin-operated shower rooms with huge showers. Did not like that you have to take your shoes off in an entry area to the building. Nice community room (locked). The sites are mostly level gravel with minimal grass. The Wi-Fi fluctuated and could be slow when there were many users. Rate reflects Good Sam and taxes. We might camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had to stop in Dawson Creek due to wash outs farther north on the Alaska Highway. This is by far the best RV park in Dawson Creek. It is well maintained,and has a friendly, helpful staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly owner/hosts who are proud of their facility and working to upgrade it as evidenced by the new shower/restrooms - private rooms with huge showers as nice as we've seen. Our problem was that the showers and laundry operated on Canada dollar coins - no change machine and the office does not open until noon. How operators think they can be closed half of a day and still meet the needs of clients does not make sense to me. The sites are gravel with tiny patches of grass on some, but level. The Wi-Fi was weak. Rate reflects Good Sam and taxes. We will try one of the other parks on our return trip from AK. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed two nights and recommend the park to other RVers. Helpful and polite office staff knowledgeable of the area. Mostly level spaces with gravel. It is a lot with few trees but fairly typical of Alaska Highway RV parks. Very clean (and newly renovated) bathrooms, showers and laundry room. Small store with RV supplies. Highway noise but quiets down in the evening. Owners seem to be putting a lot of energy into improvements. Located right outside of town, very convenient. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Located on a bluff overlooking Dawson City so it is a nice view. You camp on gravel with 50 amp service available. Friendly and helpful staff. Free WiFi worked well as did cable. Five minute drive to see the start of the Alaska Highway and milepost "0". We would stay here again. We travel in a fifth wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our GPS did not take us to this campground but down gravel roads outside the town of Dawson Creek. We arrived a little frustrated but the staff were super accommodating and went the extra mile to make our stay better. The campground has a great view from a hill over looking the town of Dawson Creek. Our pull though site did have some grass and two mid size trees, however many sites were just on a gravel lot. The site next to our was empty and became a walking path to the washroom for the whole campground. Washroom building was new with separate rooms with sink, toilet and large coin operated showers that were unisex and perfect for families. No fire pit at our site but one available near a meeting room. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for two nights in preparation for our departure for Alaska. The campground is extremely convenient to downtown Dawson Creek. The owners are also making significant improvements, including new bathrooms and a new laundry (my wife called it "fabulous" with new appliances) which are among the best we've seen anywhere! The staff was incredibly helpful to both us and some of our traveling companions in trying to find local RV services. The cable TV was excellent and the wireless had a strong signal (but be certain to get the correct access code). There is a little noise from the traffic on the adjacent highway, but only a very minor issue as far as we were concerned. Highly recommended! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, clean basic park for an overnight stay. The staff was friendly. Wi-Fi worked well. Good selection of TV channels. It was quiet in the back section of the park. I imagine it might have been noisier up front as the park is on a "dangerous load road". Would stay here again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park fit our needs to prepare for the Alaska Highway. We noticed a lot of work being done to improve the park and the new owner was extremely helpful, a very hardworking individual. The WiFi worked for the most part, and we had 12 channels of cable TV. Water pressure was good. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Your very basic crushed rock sites, Ours was level. Cable and Wi-Fi worked fine. Close to town. Very nice new shower house and laundry room - best we've seen. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is under new ownership/management. They are wonderful people. We do not normally use the bathrooms or showers but checked them out since they are brand new. Would highly recommend this park. We had a gravel, level pull-through site. There is a nice county road behind the park that the county does not maintain anymore, but twice, while walking our pup, two different owners in the area came out and told me that it was fine to walk her around the area. It is a huge, well-kept grassy area. Everyone we have met during our stay in Dawson Creek, BC, were wonderful and helpful people. I would stay here again without hesitation. The prices in this area are rather high compared to what we are used to but considering the short season, we can understand why. Had great Wi-Fi and satellite radio reception. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The good news is that new owners bought this park in April 2010 and will be making improvements. There are a lot of deficiencies in the meantime. The shower and laundry building is an old mobile home with sagging floors, exposed wiring, rust, etc. The women's bathroom has two toilets, one doesn't work and a sign threatens eviction if you use it or take the sign down. The meeting room building has a tar paper roof which sags. All of the buildings need paint and new roofs. The sites are narrow and not long enough for our coach and toad together. They are pretty flat however. There is only one dumpster for the entire park. Our cable TV was disconnected so we didn't have that even though it was included in the price we paid. The staff and owner were wonderful: very friendly and helpful. This park is not worth $30 per night. They have let their Good Sam affiliation lapse so they do not give any discount. Unfortunately the parks in Dawson Creek fill up each night and they can get away with the price and services. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were in a pull through in the back section. The room was sufficient but the whole area had large standing puddles. I was able to straddle the one at our site because of my size. They don't use any campground management software and had lost our reservation. (They keep a list on some scratch paper) Wi-fi worked fine. I would not rule this out for an overnight, but I would have to think about it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we stayed here, for one night, it was very busy. Most spots are close to each other. Very good internet connection. Not a place where would stay for more than 1 night. Good for one night stop over. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
[ 7 / 10 ]
There are two sections to this park and we were in the nicer one which had more grass separating the sites. The back section appeared to have more dirt and less gravel. It was an easy in and out for our 33 foot 5th wheel but our pull-through gravel site wasn’t very level side to side. The power was good and there is cable TV. Despite a good Wi-Fi signal, I was not able to get any web pages or e-mail to open. I later learned that the system was down that day. I did not go to the Internet Lounge and try to get on there. The park is located right off the highway, so there is some road noise. We did not use the bathrooms so can not comment. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Small, cramped, junky. Restrooms and showers are old and dirty. WiFi in and out, but okay speeds when it was working. Will find someplace to boondock when back in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
At first you feel like your in a junk place. Very muddy with junk all over. The sites are close together. The internet works fine in the commons area which does stay open all night. Not too bad of a place just for one night, but not more. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The manager was unaware we had reservations even though we'd had them for a month and had confirmed 2 weeks before arriving. Things were chaotic and we were shoehorned as were many other rigs wherever they could fit with some having limited utilities until other rigs departed and a space available. We heard the park had been newly purchased and the handover obviously not very complete. The manager did work hard to do what he could and it was hard to be mad, though some were. It's not a luxurious spot but the wifi is excellent and it's a good jumping off spot for Alaskan travelers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice people in the office. The sites are OK and usable. The shower rest room is older but clean and wifi as usual at most parks weak, but the front of the rec building has chairs and tables and has a strong signal. It is not a destination but a stop on your way to the destination. It does what it is expected to do. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a fantastic park, but certainly OK. We parked close to the wifi antenna so it worked well at our site. Both wifi and plug-in available at the laundry. Satellite reception was marginal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent 3 days here enroute to Alaska. The staff was friendly and the computer room made it nice to get hooked up and stay in touch. The only downside was the "wide spacious sites" advertised were pretty narrow and required some care getting in and out. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were here 4 days with a big rig rally just back from Alaska. People were nice; the park had areas under construction; the sites were mostly level but close together; the rec hall was a life-saver for meals & meetings; the firepit was well used. It is out of town a mile or so, but this isn't much of a problem. As always on this trip, fitting 27 big rigs into a park was an experience, but it worked. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An adequate park is about all I can give it. Each site has grass between them but are very narrow; your neighbors sewer hookup will be right by your picnic table. Sites are short, not enough room for your trailer and TV. Has satellite TV but that's only 6 channels. Broadband Internet available in a room near the office which was free so that's a step in the right direction. Mechanic available in the evenings for oil changes, minor repairs, etc but very expensive; $30 PLUS parts for an oil change; a dealer in town did mine for $20. As with all parks pets must remain on a leash, but not so for the owners dog who is allowed to wander around freely, frequently wetting on our picnic table. We'll go somewhere else next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is not a pretty RV park, It is a convenient place to spend a night when starting the Alaska Highway. New owners took over last summer and the improvements are obvious. The bath house is immaculate with large private, tiled showers. However, the showers do cost - $1 for 3 minutes. The sites are level and tree shaded but close together. One nice feature is that this RV Park is the beginning of the town's walking/ biking path. After we set up, we easily biked to the center of town to take our picture in front of the 0 Milepost. We would stop here again on the way to Alaska. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here because we were desperate, and I really hope we’re never quite that desperate again. The spots were so small they were claustrophobic. Even though we had a pull-through spot, it was tough getting in and out, and our slides were perilously close to our neighbor when we were parked. The hookups were not well maintained. The parking lot was muddy and full of pot holes. Our neighbors were friendly and pleasant, but the big diesel trucks that pulled in and out all night were not. The park was almost full, and most of the spaces were taken by people who lived in the park and worked at a nearby industrial site. The majority of the washers and dryers in the laundry room were broken. The bathrooms were clean but primitive. The Wi-Fi did not reach to our site, so we had to camp out in the spartan laundry room with our laptop to read e-mail. The park did not feel very secure at night, and the lighting wasn’t good. If you walked anywhere at night, you were liable to step in a pothole. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed because we like a shady campsite and most other campgrounds in the area don't offer shade. Mile "0" Campground does. The park is under new management and has added free WiFi, which worked well, but the campground is poorly maintained; considerable trash on ground, broken covers on electrical boxes, broken/loose water connections, etc. The manager was quick to leave the campground and get help to fix a broken water outlet, but otherwise we saw no one working on the campground in 3 days, which explains the general state of repairs. We drove through Mile "0" Campground and wished we'd stayed there. Lots of shade trees and most sites were wide with grass. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
During the summer it is hard to get a site in Dawson Creek, due to the many caravans starting out for Alaska from there. Mostly gravel parking lot, and sites are very tight. Also noticed the park was up for sale. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground is half filled with permanent or seasonal residents. Power connection was not grounded. The Dawson Rotary trail is nearby. Our site was close to the road and some big rigs driving by were too close for comfort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
