I camped at the Gold Creek site for one night. The camp was the only one open out of the three, at this time of the year. There were only a few campers in the site. Generally I found that every camp site that I looked at was surround by garbage. That probably led to the scary interaction with a... More

Great place to hike, bike, swim, boat, camp.... Beautiful views of the mountains and lake. Beaches are good - the teenagers liked Gold Creek. Campgrounds were well kept and Boating was really good but you have to watch out for dead heads until you get further out. The hhike to lower falls is pretty flat and can be done by... More

We went camping here this summer and the park was awesome. So much to do. Really well kept. Nice trails for some light hiking. We walked up to upper falls and it was to beautiful. we did some cycling and then went on a guided horseback trail ride with Equutrails. That was the highlight of our vacation. We took the... More

Been to the park many times, both by car and cycling. Cycling is a tough grind on the short hill just before entering the park, but other than that it is fairly easy going. Have also driven up and cycled up the Mike Lake trail, which is a good workout. We have also driven to the end and walked the... More

I have hiked the Golden Ears 1/2 a dozen times. It is a grueling hike for sure (10-12 hours round trip) but the views when you break out onto the ridge and then climb the last 90 minutes to the top, are spectacular. All the way up, you get to experience diverse forests, creeks, snow pack all year round, rock... More

Just visited for the day to enjoy some walking with family whilst on a holiday from England. Beautiful easy walking in the shadow of the awe-inspiring Golden Ears Mountain on easy trails. Followed the river for the most part to reach the waterfall. Such scenery and peace and only a few miles from Maple Ridge where I was staying.

I stayed at Alouette campground and found the facilities to be tidy and in good order. Lot's of good hiking trails and the beach on the lake was excellent. Lot's of families, I found everyone to be friendly and the setting beautiful, hard to believe your only a short drive from Maple Ridge. It might be time though for park... More

We stayed at North Beach Campground for two nights. Golden Ears is close to Vancouver, so it's easy to reach. Something that quite a few people know. We got a site last minute and it was a nice site under the trees. The site was clean, the picnic table in good shape. Water is available through a manual pump. Takes... More

I wasn't a fan of the Alouette campground. The sites are not very private and there is too much hustle and bustle. It's very busy and noisy. The bathrooms leave something to be desired. The showers have not seen a scrub brush in a year I'm sure. They were moldy and the push button only stays on for 5 seconds... More
