“Not my first choice”

Reviewed Aug 22, 2018

Overall Rating

We booked at Revelstoke Campground because we were visiting the area during peak season and booked last minute. When researching, we weren't able to find many first-come-first-serve campgrounds in the area and quickly found all the other RV parks were booked up.

The only thing appealing to us about Revelstoke Campground was the location. It was only a few miles from downtown and a close drive to Revelstoke Park (and also drive-able to Glacier).

We camped in the lower loop which meant a short drive down a bumpy gravel road. The lower loop doesn't have bathrooms/showers which means a very long walk up to the upper loop campsites (through a dirt path in the woods). I'm guessing you could drive, but they also don't have any parking spots at the bathroom facilities. We felt that this was a little ridiculous, especially considering the high price tag of this place. The bathrooms were always full of mud/just plain dirty.

The daily rate listed amount is Canadian dollars (with GST the total was $297.44 for 6 nights).

Our site was full-hook-up and had a picnic table. It was dirt/gravel and un-level. Most of the tent sites were just a patch of grass right on the side of the road.

The campground does have a pool. We found it was constantly packed with kids so we didn't use it. There is laundry facilities in the upper campground, but it isn't cheap. $3 wash, $3 dry (and only a couple machines that are always full).

We did have signal on ATT but sometimes had bandwidth issues when everyone else was online. The only WiFi offered by the campground requires you to be a few feet away from the store/office. It is not accessible at the sites.

Overall, we were happy to have a place to stay, but were not impressed with the facilities. However, we do not have children and do not like the KOA style resorts. If you have kiddos, you might like this place (pool, free movie nights, feed the ducks, playground, etc).

We would recommend The Village Idiot in town if you are looking to grab a beer/pizza. There is also a brewery just a few miles down the road from the campground.

“Just needed a power hookup”

Reviewed Aug 11, 2018

Overall Rating

It was going to be hot and we wanted to run the AC, so we grabbed a few nights here. I would stay again in similar circumstances, but I would rather stay at the Provincial Parks in the area if the weather is nice.

Pros:
Good location
Full hookups
A quick walk to Mt Begbie Brewery

Cons:
Takes a while to drive to your site
Very dusty. Fine talcum powder dust. It got everywhere.
Sites aren’t super level
