The location is superb - right next to Abraham Lake and sheer mountains on the other side. It has a range of accommodation, from motel, to rustic cabins, to RVs, to standard campground sites. It has a store, a cafe, and a gas station. Although it is out of range of telephone providers, it even has internet connection sporadically available.... More

Having read other reviews, we weren't expecting the Hilton. I didn't have a problem with the retro 70's vibe ... gold bathtub, fake wood paneling, etc. Just didn't expect to see paint peeling off the walls. The room was clean enough and had a coffee maker and a fridge. Only a couple fuzzy channels, no phone. Bedding was clean but... More

Stayed overnight at the David Thompson Resort August 2015. The location of this property is wonderful. From the resort you can hike down to Abraham Lake which is absolutely stunning. The campground seems nicely set out & they have cabins & RV's available to rent. We stayed in the motel. It was clean, but it is very dated & in... More

We booked a tent site to put our small tent trailer on for the night. When we arrived, the front desk staff seemed put off that I was bothering them. Once we got to our site, I couldn't find a place that was level. Ended up having to use the scissor jack from our car to lift the one side... More

If you want a flashback to 1970, then this is your place! The bathrooms badly need a renovation. The cinder block walls need to be wall boarded over and the upholstery and linens need a refresh. My kids were afraid to lie down on the beds because the bed spreads looked old and dirty. We were happy that our room... More

Lots were not level. Everything was on a slope. Only one main bathroom and 2 showers for over 100 sites. Not cleaned at all. Everything in store was overpriced. I know that you have to pay for the convenience and I camp all summer so used to that, but this was over the top. Firewood was 10.50 for a very... More
