Chalk Lake Spring

Filled up my jugs here, spoke to a local who drinks from this unfiltered regularly, this spring is tested by locals often and has never come back contaminated

picnic area

Good spot to picnic, has garbages and washrooms. Looks like a local fishing spot as well

Depew River

Lovely spot for a quick overnight. It gets quite dark, there are picnic tables, garbages and pit toilets.

Rest Stop Camping

Rest stop with big open lot, RV friendly, lights and bathroom stay open all night. Bathrooms have flushing toilets and running water.

Rest Stop Showers - Petro Canada

Super clean bathrooms and brand new fixtures!

Borden Bridge Campground

Great little campground by the river. Unserviced sites were $25 and serviced sites were $35. At night a string of lights guides your way in. There are more sites around the corner, which we didn’t realize, those are darker and have less noise from the bridge.

White Wolf Lodge

We stayed overnight here. The temperature was dropping below zero and all of the lodged and hotels wanted too much for the off season. This Inn was willing to negotiate, they’re very friendly and have warm, clean rooms, hot showers and wifi.

Wapiti campground (all year)

If you’re looking for power, you’ll have to stay in the parking lot with all the other RVs. They do have fire pits there and it’s close to the showers. Other campsites are unserviced and you can notice the clear cutting, as there is little privacy but if you want to stay in Jasper in the off season, this is your only option.

Kicking Horse

Closed for season

Mosquito campground

Beautiful campground but we stayed on their last night being open. They’re now closed for the season.

Monarch Campground

This was the last weekend open! We tried kicking horse but it was closed despite the website. This is a nice park with little amenities. No power or running water. Pit Toilets. They do have outdoor sinks in the summer.

Epic place above Wapta Falls!

Amazing location at Wapta Falls Recreation Sites. There are only two sites and one makeshift one and a pit toilet. Sites have picnic tables, fire pits and amazing views of the Wapta Falls and mountains. What a gem!

Illecillewaet Campground

Nice campground in the Glacier National Park, walking distance to the trailheads for a lot of the hikes in the park. Pit toilets, weak cell service, no water or RV amenities.

Boulder Mountain Resort

So good, we came back for another night in the hot tub.

A-bun-dance Bakery

What a treat! Really glad someone thought to put this into Overlander. We had breakfast and coffee and walked out with a box of baked goods and a loaf of bread!

Boulder Mountain Resort

After several days of wild camping this was a real treat. THERE IS A HOT TUB! Open till 10pm for all guests, no matter the type of site you choose. We took an RV site with power only, they have yurts, large cabins and walk-in campsites, as well as full service RV sites. There is laundry, hot showers, and bathrooms open all night. They’re currently building more yurts and also have a canteen open till 8pm that has ice and snacks.

Ljs Camping riverside

What a gem! There is a pullout at the bottom of a hill and a road in from there, several spots with fire pits and the furtherest site has a bar! Take a beer, leave a beer <3

Strawberry Point Recreation Site

Really great sites, there are pit toilets and it was almost empty when we arrived. There are paths to a pebble beach with epic views and more fire pits right on the water. Plenty of dry wood there. In the morning some crews were active clearing downed trees, but you could hardly hear them.

Riverside Recreation Site (Squamish)

Really great sites, pit toilets nearby and picnic tables + firepits at every site. There are also wild campsites on the other side of the road (same side of river), just over the bridge.

Mamquam Campground

This is a gem of a spot. There are about 8 sites along the river, some are large enough for several tents, they all have fire pits if there is no fire ban in the area. The cites are no more than a 5 min walk from the road and the outhouses are fairly clean.
We did find some garbage left behind from a party which we removed. Definitely expect it to be busy on summer weekends. Take good care of this beauty!

Right at the Similkameen River

This is a great spot but definitely avoid on the weekends if you’re looking for a quiet location. We arrived late on a Friday and there were 2 vehicles and about 7 full trailers & trucks. It was a real local brewhaha, they ran a generator late into the night that the river could not down out. But there was plenty of space for everyone, we went right to end of the rocky beach and got a little privacy.

Roadside pullout

Exactly as described. There is a large pile of rocks on one side and we pulled in parallel to the road, which gave us some privacy to sit out facing the lake. No more than 2-3 cars drive by an hour.. plus so close to the hot springs!

Townsite Campground

Showers were so hot, we stayed another night :)

Townsite Campground

Nice campsite with easy access to a lot of the hikes. There is no privacy but good amenities; power, hot showers and outdoor kitchens. Walking distance from the restaurants in town, but in the off season there is not much open, bring your own food in.

Frenchman Valley Campground

Really interesting place to explore. We stayed one night, but did a nice hike. The terrain is so different from the rest of Canada. Cacti, Wild Bison and Lizards!? If you’re driving in at night, like we did, you have to drive slow, there are deer and antelope everywhere!

Lodge Lake Park (before was:Highway 17 Rest Stop with Beautiful Lake

Nice rest stop and the view in the morning is quite pretty. Pit toilets were frequented.
