Mad Fox Riverside Ranch

5 sites · RVs, Tents160 acres · Clearwater, BC
The Mad Fox Ranch is a beautiful 160 acre property, tucked away in the mountains. This unique parcel has been homesteaded since the 1930’s and we were fortunate enough to call it our home a few years back. There are swimming holes, a pond, and a bridge to cross over to the walking trails on the other side. We are an off grid, farm that has veggie gardens, greenhouses, cute pigs and chickens. We offer farm fresh eggs from our free range hens to campers for purchase. We’ve decided that this is too beautiful a spot not to share, so we are now offering dry camping on various sites on the property. Wildlife abounds with bears, moose and deer which makes this a hunters paradise as well. Endless logging roads around to explore and find your new favourite berry picking spots. The Mad River meanders in the summer and rushes in the spring with the winters melt. In the heat of summer it still provides a refreshing dip after a hard day of farming or exploring. Come see why we love it here! Our closest neighbour is a seasonal cabin over 4 km away so it provides lots of privacy. Our sites are spaced out with trees in between them and right on the river.

Camping near Clearwater guide

Overview

Situated in the beautiful expanse of British Columbia, Clearwater offers waterfront campsites that allow campers to settle into the area’s natural wonders. Wells Gray Provincial Park provides stunning waterfalls, numerous hiking trails, and kayaking opportunities on pristine lakes, while at Dutch Lake, campers can settle in for days of swimming, boating, and fishing accessible right outside the tent. For time in the rainforest, head out on a day trip to Blue River Safari, home to jet-boat adventures and wildlife encounters along the scenic Blue River.

Where to go

Wells Gray Provincial Park

Surrounded by serene landscapes and immense waterfalls, campers can immerse themselves in the beauty of Wells Gray Provincial Park. HIke to Helmcken Falls or Spahats Falls and marvel at the raw power of nature. Then explore Trophy Mountain and Moul Falls trails to see wildlife and waterfalls. Campers who are more inclined to water adventures can canoe or kayak on Clearwater Lake or Azure Lake. After a day in the park, settle into nearby cabins or campgrounds for tents and RVs with amenities like electrical hookups, clean facilities, and picnic areas.

Dutch Lake

Embark on a waterfront adventure and camp right beside Dutch Lake. The lake’s warm waters are spring fed, which makes swimming, kayaking, canoeing, or boating popular activities to do while there. Anglers will also enjoy fishing for various species such as rainbow trout and kokanee. With hiking trails that wind through nearby forests, campers can also spend time out of the water to spot local wildlife like the bald eagle. At the end of the day, head back to a lakeside campground to build a bonfire and enjoy amenities such as picnic tables, fire pits, toilets, and showers.

Blue River Safari

In the heart of the planet’s only inland temperate rainforest is Blue River Safari. Hop aboard a jet boat and cruise the pristine Blue River for the chance to encounter bears, eagles, and moose—all while expert guides provide insights into the area's ecology and history. Afterward, unwind at a nearby campground or private Hipcamp site, many of which offer a range of options including tent sites and RV campsites with hookups, plus amenities like picnic areas and private bathrooms.

When to go

Summers in Clearwater range from 20 to 30°C, making activities such as hiking, fishing, and canoeing very popular. Winters are chilly, with temperatures averaging around -5 to -10°C. Snowfall is common, which is great for campers who like winter sports, such as skiing and snowshoeing. Spring and fall bring milder temperatures and vibrant foliage as well as pleasant hiking conditions.
