“Roaring River + Great Hikes”

Reviewed Apr 29, 2016

Overall Rating

We camped here in August 2013.

Illecillewaet is 1st come 1st serve, so I was a little worried that we'd have trouble getting a spot for everyone in our group. We arrived on a Tuesday with a total of 8 trailers and didn't have a problem. There were only a few spots that could accommodate the 34 foot Airstream in our group.

Campsites are relatively private and many sat next to a roaring river. We enjoyed a few hikes from the campground. Apparently there were bears in the area, but we didn't see any.

We've only camped in a few places in Canada and this was one of our favorites.
