Enjoy over 5 beautiful acres right on the Chilliwack River! A wonderful family-friendly (including pets!) getaway with endless activities nearby.

Our campsite is available in the spring and summer and is just 20 minutes from the city of Chilliwack, BC. We provide a fire pit and campfires are allowed as long as there is no fire ban.

PLEASE NOTE,  We are pet friendly but your pet must be under 30 pounds, well trained, and family-friendly. If you're unsure about the weight, please send me a message. Pets must be kept on a leash and attended to at all times and you must always clean up after your pet.

Our place is a wonderful escape from the city and you can either relax or set up for an adventurous weekend!

The sites are quite private but there will be other campers nearby. We try to keep a large amount of space between sites and some are separated by trees. All sites can be accessed by a traditional car, no off-roading or 4-wheel drive vehicle is needed.

Camp riverside on a beautiful acreage setting, nestled in the mountains, beside the forest. Reconnect with nature and breathe in the fresh forest air. Leisurely riverside walks, eagle spotting, world-class fishing, all the outdoor fun, river rafting, relaxing, hiking, biking, and private beach, all here! Sleep with the sound of the river (no traffic sounds) and gaze at the night stars (no light pollution here!).

Weekend live music concerts at Tractor Grease (restaurant and pub) are 5 minutes away (You need to make a reservation in advance). Cultus Lake is a short drive (water slides, amusement park, boating, paddleboarding, hikes, yummy restaurants, etc). Day trips to Harrison Lake, Bridal Falls, Fraser Canyon. World-class hiking to Mount Cheam, Chipmunk Caves and Lindeman Lake; many other excellent hikes close by. Full-day whitewater rafting adventures are available in the area.

We have added an outdoor shower and wash-up (dishes, etc) area!!! We have a clean porta-potty on-site that is serviced at least once per week and sanitized daily.

Campers can easily social distance if needed. We have set covid 19 safety standards to keep you safe. Electrical power available (limited to evening use). Guests can enjoy our pure artisan spring water!!

We do have 2 pugs and our neighbour has a large yellow lab who comes over unannounced; they are a bit free-range and both friendly; Let us know if you have any concerns about dogs and we will keep them away.

Each site has its own fire pit.

We look forward to hosting you, your family, or your group on our property!

We loved tent camping at Jame and Lisa’s land. It was really a heart warming journey. The view was absolutely amazing, our camp site has a running river view! The experience was like camping at a friends place. Not like other camp site or the public resort. This one was really quiet and self focused. This lovely camp site has everything we needed! And James offered us a big help when we really needed it. Really lucky that we have them as the host, and we will revisit but next time we will try site number 5! Haha. Cheers!

We loved the space, it was right by the river and well kept. The hosts were helpful and friendly, and very accommodating. We had a great relaxing time, with plenty of sun to play, and plenty of shade to kick back. Our 5 year old enjoyed exploring the grounds and the river bank very much. Would book again.

James and Lisa are very gracious and take pride in their property. The scenery is stunning with large spaced out sites.

James and Lisa a very kind hosts and we loved our stay. The property is beautifully located next to a river where you can go for evening walks. It is quiet, which is what we wanted, especially in the evenings.
The hosts clearly care about the guests - and are happy for a chat. We are certainly coming back!
