Price was $24 in Canadian funds for 15amp (??) electric. This is a place to stay away from!! We had planned on staying at a different campground (Sasquatch Crossing), but were turned away as we were told that the campground services had not been “turned on” yet. This place is the pits! This “park” (and I use the term extremely loosely) houses mostly construction workers, along with a number of dilapidated old mobile homes. Our electrical service was barely adequate to microwave our TV dinners…only 106 volts! At 6:16 AM, the power went off until an emergency generator could be put into service. Fairly clean pay showers, cost 1 “Looney” or more. Water quality was not very good. A sign in the laundry cautioned not to wash whites with hot water due to the minerals in the water. The Wi-Fi advertised is nonexistent. When we checked in, we were told it hasn’t worked in the past month. We would not stay here again unless it was an emergency! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The absolute WORST place we stayed the whole 30 days we were on the road! Pull through sites were more than tight, muddy and the water we had hooked up to had an AWFUL smell. The water also stained our towels and toilet with what my husband says is iron, but it smelled like a sewer smell. Needless to say we unhooked our water line but were still left with the stains on our toilet (YUCK). After check in (people were very nice) we drove to our "pull through" just to be greeted by a plywood building that has a sign that reads, "All meat left in here must be skinned and quartered!!" Dear Lord!! The place is a bit scary. The only thing that kept me from leaving was the nice people camping beside us. All in all next trip, we will plan to drive much further and not stop here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here after driving through a horrible snow and wind storm. They weren't officially open but cheerfully provided us with a site. They only had 15 AMP power but we were totally happy. We even ran out of propane that freezing night. Fortunately they had propane service. We were so happy to have landed safely that we stayed 2 nights. The people we met there were great and very accommodating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Actually the availability of Pink Mountain Campground was a Godsend. We got caught in a late season snowstorm and were desperate. Lois and Bill were very supportive and made our 2 day stay perfect. The power was a bare minimum and the mud was a challenge, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and recommend it (with caveats) to friends. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Written up in the Milepost as "one of the nicest campgrounds of the Alaskan Highway". Not! We payed $18 for a 15 amp electric hookup. Had to tie the electric plug into the outlet to keep from having it fall out. Our space was a mud bog. They put two other rigs in our area and they had the same problems. Private residents close by had people walking through our campsite all night. Wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The first impression was a lack of cleanliness. Some sites it turns out are better than others and our site unfortunately had a 15 amp service and no view. The circuit breaker tripped as soon as the microwave was turned on. I went to the office to ask for the location of the breaker panel and was directed to a box in the trees behind site #5. I reset the breaker which was very loose and tried another appliance in the 5th wheel. The breaker tripped again. Tired and wet and with no help around I ran a power cord extension to an adjacent site that had a 20 amp service rather than the15 amp on my site which was #14. That worked fine. The manager finally came by to tell me he reset the 15 amp breaker and when I informed him it had tripped a second time and I had connected to a nearby empty site he did not look pleased and simply went off. Shortly after I went to pay the overnight fee and had my dogs with me on leashes. I got a tongue lashing for not having obeyed the "no dogs in front of the store" sign which I had not seen as it faced the highway and not the camping area. I found management very unfriendly and not particularly helpful. Add to that a dirty campsite with a distinct septic tank odor where we were leads me to not recommend a stay in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate shown includes tax and is for a full hookup 20 amp site. Our site was a good, fairly level gravel back-in. Not much space between the full hookup sites, but lucky for us this section was not full. Most of the sites with a river view had more space, but had power only. The mosquitoes and other biting insects were not that bad in the open areas. No TV unless you had a satellite dish. Park had Wi-Fi, but it was usable only near the store. The store offers ice cream treats and cheap phone cards. I would come here again as it is more peaceful than some of the campgrounds in the larger communities on the Alaska highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked this very unique campground. It is not typical, but it provides a very nice rustic setting on the river and fantastic hosts. They are in the process of remodeling the restrooms and showers. The Wi-Fi on the front porch worked perfectly. As others have said there is no TV or phone: we loved it. We had a river-front site. The owner offers a free stay to a randomly chosen guest when ever there are more than 6 guests staying on any night. Very cool! We WILL stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a typical ALCAN road house campground that runs off a generator and is otherwise self-contained. It is in a scenic location along the river with bluffs that make it feel like a canyon. No cell or TV reception so it feels very isolated. Our 20 amp power was reliable (but limited to 20 amp) for our overnight stay. No problem for a big rig with toad. We didn't have to disconnect. All sites have a river view with some directly on the river. Easy to find directly off the highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very unkempt campground. Multiple sites are on one 15 amp circuit!! Kept tripping the breaker when trying to use small electric heater. When we complained to the manager, he simply turned and walked away!! Would stay away from this place at all costs. Buildings are dilapidated; restrooms not nice at all. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A gem in the rough. Relaxing spot on the Sikanni River. OK for an overnight stay. The layout was a little bit confusing although the sites were numbered. Riverside sites were few and only had power/no water service. Bath house looked like it was about to cave in, lots of mold. Needs a redo and some sprucing up. We are self contained so services not really an issue for us. This wouldn't be our first choice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice location along the river, and nice owner. There was a lot of maneuvering room. Power is generated on-site. We had a 15A electric site - with only 100 volts. (Campers with expensive electronics beware.) There was a nice playground area, and a small convenience store. Nicest RV park along the stretch of road between Fort Nelson and Dawson Creek. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park has a quaint, picturesque, rustic setting along the river. If you don't expect much, you won't be disappointed. We didn't and were delighted with our stay. Electrical outlet polarity was reversed at the first site tried. Restrooms and showers are very old and it shows. The back-in sites were all taken by semi-permanents, as there is a great deal of oil and gas work in the area. Pull-through sites are narrow if you have opposing slideouts. With more than five overnighters, there is a drawing with the winner getting their night's stay for free. The owner is great, but all in all I think the previous reviews have been a little generous in their ratings, or maybe they won the drawing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In Sept 2009 our truck broke down near this campground. The owners were incredibly helpful. I spent many hours at their campground dealing with a repair service and was amazed at how welcoming the owners were. They literally stopped their day to help us! I would like to encourage travelers along the Alaskan Hwy to stay here -- all travelers benefit when we give our business to incredibly kind people. In 2010 we will return and stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My children built inukshuks on the river bank and had tons of fun. Our slot (and most of the ones in the park) was next to the river and was just gorgeous. The sites by the river were 15 amps only with no water and no sewer, but wow: what scenery! Our pull-through slot was easy to get into. The back-end sites all radiate off a large open area, so they would be easy to back into, and we’re not great at backing in. The price can’t be beat. They also sold gasoline, which was convenient (although pricey, like most of the places along the Alaska highway). Reservations by e-mail were quick and easy. The owner was a delight, and she obviously loves children. Instead of belonging to any of the RV discount clubs, the owner holds a drawing every night that she has more than five campers, and one campsite gets a free night’s stay. The bathrooms were rustic but clean. This is a lovely campground, and I would hurry back here. It is very conveniently located directly off the highway. There was some road noise from a nearby highway bridge, but we weren’t bothered by it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Picturesque park on the Siskini River. Spacious, quiet sites with the sound of the river in the background. (20 amp locally generated power) Great camp hosts. Old Alaska Highway is just across the river. Several quaint, humorous elements that we enjoyed. If we pass that way again, well stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful campground along the Sikanni River. It is a perfect place to stop and relax or for an overnight half way between Fort St John and Fort Nelson. There is a small store and gas, diesel, and propane available. The on-site owners, Wayne Gillis and Jackie Allen are incredibly friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
