CLOSED FOR THE 2023 SEASON! Reopening May 1 2024. Sites will be available to book from February 1 for the 2024 camping season! Operating Thursday - Sunday. Located on 1.5 acres of second growth rainforest and fully fenced, the camp area is minutes from the Cheakamus river, accessed in either direction on Paradise Valley road. Our property is reached after travelling 4.2km of gravel on Paradise Valley road. about 15 min from Hwy99. The gravel road condition can range from smooth and graded to dusty and washboard, but is always accessible in a 2wd. We are just far enough from civilization to feel like you're out in the woods, with amazing dark sky's and stargazing. String and path lighting provide ample light, set on a dusk to dark timer. Bring your flashlight for off-hours. This is a shared space campsite, and pet friendly, so you may or may not have neighbours if you’ve only booked 1 site. We have a friendly family dog, a Labrador X named Arthur, who may interact with you. Prepare your meals in the shared kitchen, with the provided 2-burner propane stove, pots and pans, cutlery and kitchen basics. A french-press coffee maker is provided. there is an overhead light for the evenings. There is a charcoal grill but you must provide your own charcoal and starter fluid if you're planning on using it, and clean it when you're done. A sink with water is provided for dishwashing and cooking. A full sized 1950's vintage fridge will keep your food fresh and secure behind the sliding glass doors while you're out adventuring. Condiments are not supplied so bring your own if needed. There is a 120V electrical outlet for charging your devices. There is no WI-FI available, but you do get a couple of bars of reception on your mobile devices. YOU ARE IN A WILDLIFE AREA, AND NO FOOD OR GARBAGE CAN BE LEFT UNATTENDED OUTSIDE AT ANY POINT!!! The bathroom has running cold water at the sink, with hand soap and a hand towel provided. The shower is an antique claw-foot bathtub with a hot-water-on-demand shower. Towels are not provided, so you must bring your own, along with personal cleaning products if you plan on showering. The stainless steel incinerator toilet is clean and efficient, with toilet paper provided. Instruction for its use must be strictly adhered to and can be found next to the toilet. 2 large propane fire bowls, and a full 20 lb propane tank ( last 6-8 hrs ) are available to rent for $35, or bring your own setup to use. Small wood fires in the fire pit may be considered during cooler shoulder seasons when fire bans are lifted, but are not guaranteed. No open flames are permitted during fire bans. This is non negotiable and could result in a $1250 fine from our neighbouring fire warden. Drinking water is available, but bringing your own is recommended. There is a beautiful, but gruelling, 45 minute hike to Starvation Lake for warm water swimming, or mountain bike the Sea to Sky trail which begins a few minutes from our driveway. There is lots of opportunity to view wildlife, or forage for herbs and mushrooms. Paddle the river in your kayak or river raft, or fly-fish for steelhead, salmon seasonally, and trout year round. Access to the river is NOT permitted though our property. You're welcome to use your Bluetooth speaker at a reasonable level, but keeping noise down after 11pm is appreciated by all.
