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

We didn't have time for a long stay but were able to have a good swim before the sun went down too far. The scenery at the beach is phenomenal and you feel so small amongst it all. It is beautiful and there are walkways along the beach to the washrooms which are proper washrooms with running water - not... More

Golden Ears Park is beautiful. The hike to the lower falls is about an hour long each way through the park rain forest. Great for all levels. Most of the hour is spent taking photos along the way. Kayaking is great, rates are reasonable. Hiking up to Golden Ears is about an estimated 7 hour hike one way. To do... More

We camped at North Beach Campsite (Golden Ears) last week. Aside from the so so weather, our stay was glorious. No internet, no cell, no power, no water hook up BUT maybe that's what some of us need to pry the cell outta our hands? Our site was a '10' on the privacy level and, being on the outer road... More

We have been to the lake numerous times over the years, always enjoyed the family picnics & swimming in the icy lake. Paid parking required if you go for the for the day. in certain areas. We also found a kids water park just as to turn up the road into the main highway towards the lake on 232nd. street.... More
