I made a reservation and arrived but was made to wait (by the manager) for service until all the store/gas customers were served first.(even though I was waiting first). When I returned to pay later, I was sternly chastised by the "asst. manager". He was very nasty to me. P.S. I have been barred. I will NEVER return and I will never recommend this place either. If you are camping they treat you poorly. I rate this less than 1. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good staff. Well stocked general store. Lots of shade if you want it with open spaces if you need a satellite signal. Very clean grassy sites with good access. WiFi is basically non-existant except at the office. Great natural surroundings. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In 12 years of RVing and staying in nearly 160 private parks, some very nice resorts, this was the most expensive place we have ever stayed. I had an email that said the price was $34 but got the same story as someone else. Price can change without notice sort of thing. From the owner / manager. Then there was a $6 fee for a one night only stay. Then the tax to get to the over $48. Site was nothing special. We certainly would not return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pros: Good clean location, well stocked convenience store, friendly staff, good size pool for the kids, and a short walk to the Fort. Cons: Was a bit pricey, but not much else close but the Fort. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has an excellent location across from Fort Steele historic site and within view of the Rockies. We visited the accordion festival in Kimberley while in the area. We have previously stayed at this park and had good experiences. I found two male staff members were rude and aggressive towards clientele. Perhaps they are having a difficult summer due to the weather. I had reserved this location several months in advance and was assigned a lot and a price. When I asked about a substantial change in price, I was told that the staff member who quoted the price and location no longer worked here. "The owner reserves the right to change prices." One male employee tried to intimidate me when I politely asked about the price change. Bathrooms were dirty and shower outlets did not work properly or at all. Paper towels were not replaced in the bathrooms. My impression is that the owners are absentee at another site in Tofino, B.C. and several management employees are not client focused. I recommend other parks in the area considering this resort is expensive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nightly rate is the "pay for 6, get the 7th night free" rate (regular rate is $41/night). Our stay was during the off season, so very quiet. On average, we were one of about 6 RVers in the park. Lots of grass, sites are mostly grass with some gravel, owners have horses, donkeys and emus near park. We stayed in a pull-through site which was fairly level, easy in and out with our 40' rig. We loved our stay here, peaceful with beautiful mountain views. During the busy season, it may be a little tight in the park, but the roads are wide with easy turns. Be sure to hang onto your receipt, as their computer booking system doesn't seem to be overly reliable. We'd definitely stay here again, very good experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Grassy sites and generally a very quiet park. Park includes a gas station and a good sized general store: so it is a good place to stock up. Easy in and out sites. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a great campground. Do not confuse with Fort Steele Campground to the south end of town, much smaller and inferior. Several people went to the wrong campground by mistake. Very nice store, gas station, pool. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park has clean washrooms, a nice pool and is close to a historic town and gas station. But there are barely any trees when in big rig stalls, and the sites are close together. Located beside an emu and alpaca farm. It's over priced and has weird rules like, you can't put out an area rug, and you have to park your truck in a specified area. (?) We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park with grass sites and gravel drives. There are some shaded sites. Most of the park does get shaded until in the afternoon as the sun goes down. This was a good place to stop on our way out of Canada and back to the US. The price was good and this was with a discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Signage to campground is OK. There is a large area to park and register. Office staff were efficient but not that friendly. Gravel access roads to sites are a little narrow and could do with some maintenance. Sites are gravel pull-throughs with a narrow strip of grass. Full hook-up but the sewer not in easy position for easy hook-up. It has a fairly open aspect. Sites were narrow particularly if the campground had been full. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park was only so so. We stayed for 3 nights while visiting the area. The Wi-Fi service was really flaky and very slow. Laundry facilities were old and not very clean. The campsites were OK however some of the picnic tables were not placed well on the sites (Concrete tables could not move). At the time of year we stayed there was few choices, we are sure there is probably better parks to stay at if one was visiting earlier in the year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here in a 36' 5th wheel. Park is fairly tight for big rigs but can be managed. Lots of trees especially in tenting area. Fairly open between sites. Sites are gravel with a patch of grass between. May not be able to get awning out depending on which site you're in. Nice rustic gift store that doubles as a convenience store. Would definitely stay here again. Only issue I had was line-ups 4 deep in the morning to get into toilets. Stayed here on Canada's August long weekend so park being full was a likely contributor to the line-ups. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small quiet provincial park. It is about 16 km south of Fort Steele on a secondary highway and quite close to Cranbrook, BC. It is well kept but there is no water hookup or electricity. Across the road is very pretty Norbury Lake which is turquoise in colour. It is very scenic. Deer are plentiful in this area so be careful when driving. According to the on site caretaker, there is a small 2 year old male bear in the area so make sure he doesn't scavage food so he won't be put down or relocated. This is a nice little park to stay in. The lots are also generous. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was not good for our 40' motorhome and car but we found a double site and fit in for one night. We parked as far over to one site as possible with our slides. However, the manager came over about 7pm and asked us to move further over. There were plenty of empty sites available at this time of night & we couldn't believe he was worried about someone wanting to park so close next to us. If they did, they would have had enough room to pull in next to us. We told him this and said we wouldn't break everything down to move over a foot. So he charged us double. The sites are uneven with many trees to maneuver between. The campground roads were very dusty with people speeding through. It's a typical government campground with no facilities except for a reasonably clean vault toilet. There is a water faucet but no dump. This campground is reached by way of the side paved road which comes at a junction just north of Fort Steele at Hwy 93, 18 NE of Cranbrook. This side road reconnects at Hwy 93 approximately 20 miles south. From the north intersection go approximately 10 miles south on the side road. The campground is on the west side of the road. Across the road is Peckham's Lake and a day use area for swimming or boating, but power boats aren't allowed. There is a short trail from the campground to Norbury Lake but folks didn't seem to use this lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
