“Large rustic campground with 3 loops plus overflow area, no services. ”

Reviewed Jun 19, 2018

Overall Rating

Located just south of Whistler, and right off the Sea-to-Sky highway, this is an extremely popular campground with 3 loops of sites available. We arrived in the evening on a Saturday in June and were grateful to find a place in their overflow area, a large open gravel spot below the hydro lines after the second loop.

The sites were along dirt roads that wound through the forest. The first loop, closest to the road, would have the most highway noise but it wasn’t too bad as it is down a hill and a short distance away. The third loop, Confluence, had a foot trail that led to a pedestrian suspension bridge over the river. Calcheak Forest Service Road also crosses the river and there is a trail from the overflow area to the river as well, so you can view the water from multiple spots.

Cell signal was decent, mosquitoes and black flies were present. A ranger came by just before dusk to collect a camping fee from us. Fee for actual sites was $13 but since we were in the overflow area, it was half price, $6.50 which seemed entirely reasonable. She said that previously they didn’t have an overflow area but they opened one up to help accommodate demand at peak times. Yay! There were about 8 RVs in the overflow area that night.

A short drive up the road is Whistler Village. They have oversize parking for RVs in Lot 3 – easy to find, just follow the signs. Price was $10 for regular cars for the day 8 am – 5pm (free after 5pm) and double that $20 for RVs over 20’. Pay by credit card at the machine entering your license plate.
