BC Provincial Parks are usually well laid out with private sites, as is Alice Lake. Nice to see the 30 Amp hook ups, but too bad that there are no water and sewer hook ups. There is a $5 sani-station across the road though. We would stay here again. Camping $ rate was seniors plus electrical hook up. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for three days, and very impressed with the campground size and space between sites. The staff was very helpful with every detail of our stay. I would highly recommend this place for family camping or a couple without children. Very quit and relaxing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was surprised to find there are now quite a few campsites with 30 amp power available. This is another beautiful, well kept BC Provincial Park with a lovely little lake, close to Squamish BC, and about 1 hour easy drive to Whistler. Lots to do in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As far as provincial parks go, this one is definitely top notch. It is big and probably one of the busiest. So that means lots of staff. They are always constantly cleaning and obviously monitoring what's going on. There are various very obvious signage that caution automatic removal if you are a nuisance which is great if you are hoping for a reasonably quiet camp ground that is full of families, adults and teenagers. The man made beaches are immaculate and the trail system for hiking and biking is immense. Sites are very standard provincial park pads. Level, standard issue picnic table and fire pit. Common water tap every few sites and pit toilet scattered through out. There is a main building with shower and flush toilet which is not typical of provincial parks. Probably a reflection of just how big this campground is. I would highly recommend this campground. Although during shoulder seasons is when you would find more peace and quiet. Being a provincial park. There are no hook ups of any kind. The dump station is very large and clean, directly across the park entrance and cost an additional $2.00. Several double sites allow you to enjoy a common site with friends should you decide to have a two RV get together. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Astounds me this park receives high ratings. Roads are not paved. No cable. Mostly semi-permanent residents. Pluses: nice mini golf, good hookups. Not a park I would spend more than 1 night, although reserved for 2 because of inflated ratings. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice and clean restrooms, good laundry (24h/day) also clean and cheap. Service/host very polite and friendly. Perfect stay on our way to Whistler! We camped here in a Motorhome.

This place is quite hidden away but worth the drive. You're right across the street from the Mamquam river which is a great hike up it. Sites are level, serviced and super clean. The campfire grill is a worthy place to grab a lunch or dinner. We've stayed here twice in the off season. We'll be back. Beware of the gun range up the street. You can hear it during the day but night is very quiet. All in all a good place to hang out for a day or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We felt safe and comfortable in this clean friendly RV park. Washrooms and showers are clean and new, no coins required. Currently Wi-Fi is not available, but plans are to upgrade the equipment next spring. Location is central to the town of Squamish with the city's indoor aquatic center a 5 minute walk away. There is a rifle range close by. This might be uncomfortable for some whenever police training is underway. We loved it and would return in a heartbeat. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was one of the nicest private RV parks we have ever stayed in. Everything was clean and well spaced. The kids spent most of the weekend at the playground, and made a few new friends. There were a few long term residents, but everything was friendly and clean. The bathrooms are nicer than ours at home! Great adventures await close by, including but not limited to: mountain biking, wind surfing, golf, rock climbing, hiking and skiing (Whistler is about 35 minutes north). Walking distance to the soccer and ball fields, perfect for tournaments. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has friendly staff, large easily accessed sites, and is nice and clean. Not much to do within walking distance. Great for a night or two, or as a base camp for exploring the region in your tow vehicle. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nicely located on the way to Whister which will host the 2010 Winter Olympics. Aesthetics could have been improved. Lots of constructions equipment, building materials and wood in various stages of cutting lying around. Good open, level gravel sites with grass areas in between. Good laundry and shower facilities. Nearby rifle range adds to country ambiance. A little noisy in the morning when the big trucks utilize the nearby side rode. Great scenery from campsite. Access to bike trails. Would revisit We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A newer park, this place isn't quite as nice as the pictures on their website would lead you to believe. Some things you might appreciate knowing that aren't listed on their website: A)The park is on a road that gets heavy truck traffic 7 days a week (gravel and cement plant near park) so road noise is present, but not disturbing. B)Also close to the park is a rifle range, and so gunfire can be heard throughout the park. Again, a nuisance noise, that may or may not bother you. C)There are a large number of "permanent" or long-term RVs in the park. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of other good choices for big rigs in Squamish. Of the ones we looked at this one is by far the nicest, even with the above-noted blemishes. Large sites, but little privacy between sites. Park roads are dirt/gravel, and have a growing pothole problem. No Cable and only 1 or 2 local stations. Gorgeous mountain views surround the park and oodles of recreation choices. Many good places to eat north of the park in Giribaldi Area. Very nice Train Heritage Park is a must see. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I stayed here just overnight on my way through. It was a Sunday night, the camp hosts were very kind on the phone and set me up for a late check-in. Everything was in order when I got there and I quickly found my spot and set up. I was only one of about 5 campers in the place so it was peaceful and quiet. On the way in I realized I was driving into a moderate rain forest...literally. This campground is under the canopy of a genuine rain forest. As such, roadways and spaces are tight. I have a small TT, no issues. I can imagine it would be a nightmare for a large TT or 5er or a Class A. The overhang is tight, but that is part of the charm of the campground. I kept expecting a dinosaur to appear, clomping around the fern covered forest floor. If you have kids, their imaginations will run wild! Likes: Neat location under the tree canopy, decent size spaces, fire pit, picnic table, full hook-ups. Dislikes: Sewer hook-up was almost out of reach without an extension hose. For as wet a location as this is, more gravel in the spaces would be nice. Lot's of mud when it rains. Back-in spaces only. No cell service and no internet. I was traveling alone on this trip, with only my dogs, but I would have enjoyed this much more if I had my kids with me. For one thing, they love trains. There is a CN line right behind the campground along the property line. I could hear and see the trains from my space. None at night, thankfully, and the line is not heavily used. But the kids would have been thrilled to go camping in a rain forest and also be able to watch the trains from our site. This is also convenient to the West Coast Rail Museum in Squamish, the reason I took this little detour over the Sea to Sky Highway to begin with. It is a wonderful museum and would be a lot of fun for any kid, young or old, who loves trains. I will also add that I had a minor repair item on my trailer on the roof, but no way to get up there until I went to check out the next morning and the camp hosts were happy to loan me a ladder. They were very kind and overall, provided an excellent experience that I wish I had time to enjoy for more than an overnight stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The owners of this private campground keep it clean and well run. If they trimmed their trees more, they could accommodate larger rigs because these sites are huge. We were in a 32' Cardinal with 2 slides and our unit is tall. It was a bit dicey trying to maneuver the tree branches. We were with family who were tenting and the one washroom facility near us was either running out of toilet paper or the toilet was plugged. Suggest they monitor that washroom more and perhaps build another one. A close walk to the river or several scenic trails. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
