Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park is about 45 minutes east of the city of Chilliwack along the Chilliwack River. The campground is at the west end of the 9 kilometer long mountain lake. Its a typically beautiful BC Park in the mountains. The campsites are in the trees. The lake is great for swimming, boating and kayaking. LOTS of great hiking from level walks to strenuous mountain climbs. There is potable water for your tanks at the sani-station. No hookups at the campsites though, so be sure your batteries are charged up. The campground was full when I was there during the week at the height of summer. Lots of local people who have been coming up to the lake year after year for decades. Although there were some noisy teens, the park hosts kept everybody happy. I loved it!
Coldspring campground is one of four campgrounds in E.C. Manning Provincial Park. Manning Park is in southwest BC in the heart of the Cascade Mountains between Hope and Princton. Many of Coldspring campsites are on the Similkameen River. In June the river was high and fast. The sound of rushing water was a pleasant backdrop to a great camping experience. When I was there, a 'boil water' advisory was in effect, so I was glad my water tank was full. There are some of the best hiking trails in the world in Manning Park, from easy level trails to high alpine stenuous hiking. In June, there was still a considerable amount of snow on the higher elevation trails. The campgrounds are a great staging area for hiking. The staff was friendly and helpfull. The park was immaculately clean. Enjoy BC Parks!
I really enjoyed my two night stay at this spot. The staff was great! The location is great, but it's pretty secluded - about a 25 minute drive to the closest grocery store in Madiera Park. The marina is beautiful. RVers share the resort with other guests in cabins, a small hotel, yurts, and boaters. There are a a few permanent RV folks. The resort is very clean. My only comment is that the RV spots are pretty tight to maneuver your rig around. And they are pretty small and close together. Next time I'm up to BC Sunshine Coast, I will camp at Porpoise Bay campground in Sechelt.
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.
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.
I camped at Hick's Lake in spot #7. I really enjoyed it, although the spots right adjacent to the lake get windy in the afternoon. Note that there are lots of water taps around the campground, but none fitted with hose threads for filling RV water tanks. I was also surprised that there was no potable water tap at the sanitary station. So fill your tanks before you come. The easy hike around Hicks Lake takes less than an hour. I loved the lake, next time I will bring my kayak. Also note that there are no services up here except outhouses. Enjoy BC's parks!
