Beautiful panoramic view of hayfields, an organic vegetable farm and the Bulkley River. We have over 50 acres with a stunning view of the mountains and river. One campsite is available for tent or RV/trailer campers (no hookups). Straight ahead to the west beyond the river is Hudson's Bay Mountain, to the north the Rocher Déboulé Range and to the South the Telkwa mountains. Very tame free-range grazing cattle are sometimes on the property. They are harmless but curious! Pets are welcome, campfires are permitted.

Private site with phenomenal views!
We had a great time at Stephen's campsite! Super conveniently located, about 5-10 min from town with a new bike/walking path that runs right by the driveway but protected from the road and feels blissfully private. The site itself has loads of flat space, whether you have large RV's, groups or want a flat tent site nestled in the trees overlooking the valley. We parked our 2WD van on a level right above the main fire and eating area, with prime views of the farm, river, valley, and mountains. The land has been in the family since 1937 and is still used as an organic vegetable farm and for raising cattle (the curious cows weren't free roaming when we were there unfortunately!). Stephen goes above and beyond, giving us great recommendations for things to do in the area and providing firewood, a hatchet, shovel, in addition to the fire pit with grill, picnic table and log seating. Make sure you take time to get up early to catch the sunrise, or stay up late to watch the sunset as they are spectacular.

The site has an amazing view of the snow clad mountains and had a lovely grassy tent site with picnic table. However it wasn't as private as we had hoped. It is very close to the highway and industrial farms so there is constant vehicle noise.

It was a beautiful place to stay! Very conveniently located off the highway. It was stocked with chopped firewood, shovel, and a picnic table.

Incredible Campsite
I've always wanted to visit northern BC and Stephen's campsite looked like the perfect place to stay. I was not dissapointed. The campsite faces one of the most incredible views of any campsite I've rented via Hipcamp: a gobsmackingly beautiful mountain range with the Bulkley river flowing through it. Stephen was the perfect host - easy to reach and very attentive and accommodating. I could not have had a better experience. It truly was wonderful finding such a great place in a region that is, for many, off the beaten track. In fact, Smithers is quite the destination for anyone looking for interesting things to do (see the Twin Falls!), beautiful places to hike and explore, and an environment that one can just kick back and relax in. The town of Smithers is quite a jewel of a town, with facilities and required services. I highly recommend this campsite. One thing to keep in mind is that the main campsite is close to a main road, so there was some traffic noise. However, this didn't bother me at all and I found the spot quite peaceful and slept well the entire trip (I'm a tent camper). (Stephen would have let me stay in other locations on his land that were farther from the road, but my camp setup required the additional space that was closer to the road).

Beautiful view!
Great view of a farm valley below. It also had enough open space so mosquitoes weren’t a problem. I liked that he provided firewood. Real nice guy.

We had a great time staying at the site! It has lots of space and has an amazing view! Stephen and his wife were very friendly, and we were visited by the very curious and friendly cows!
