“Breathtaking views and surprisingly quiet!”

Reviewed Sep 23, 2017

Overall Rating

The spot is literally right off the highway but it is behind this massive rock so it blocks all the road noise. It was surprisingly very quiet. I would back in if you have anything bigger than 25'. We backed our 32' pretty easily. The site was fairly busy with3-4 cars every night but not noisy at all. There are about 5-6 places around there to camp and everyone kept to themselves.

The views are breathtaking! You have views of the water and mountains with gorgeous sunsets. That was our favorite part. We had some att cell service (enough to send texts and stream some shows) but not enough for phone calls or constant internet searching.

There's a nice hiking trail right down the road called centennial trail which the dogs enjoyed every morning. There are loads of hiking trails for humans and dogs.

It was a 20 min drive to squamish and 30 min to downtown Vancouver. You can't beat that!

The reason we didn't rate it 5 stars is because we had a mice problem while there. We killed 4 mice in the span of 2 days. We haven't ever had a problem with mice before so once we killed the 4th mouse, we left because we had enough of that.

If staying short term, this place is fantastic. Just leave before the mice come find you!
