We have stayed in this lovely campground many times over many years and it never disappoints. Very relaxing with the big green river sliding by. Handy location for a north/south trip between Jasper and Kamloops.

The playground here is amazing...lots of trails to hike and explore (and forget Pokemon Go--you can go geocaching in North Thompson Park).

A nice place to stop for lunch or packed dinner on the way to Wells Gray or on your way out from Wells Gray. If the kids are getting restless, also a good place to stretch legs and mess about on the river's edge.
