...but grabbed something to eat, which was surprisingly very nice, given the fact that the property doe not look to promising from outside. But the staff was very nice, the food average but ok and the prices fair. I would mood necessarily recommend to go there just for eating but if you pass by the place anyway then you can... More

I had a wonderful time with my large group of family and friends.But if I was riding along the highway and pulled into look for camp site for the night by the tone of the rather rude receptionist I would have kept on going.There was no welcome and I felt like I was doing something wrong by just standing there.The...

This is a great little spot in the mountains. They have group sites, tent sites, full hook up and just power. Conscience store, gas, laundry, restaurant and a playground with mini golf for the kids. About an hour from the Columbia Ice Field and a great little walk to the river. Heli tours 5 minutes away and a horse back... More

Travelled 4 hours to get to the motel in terrible rain and all that we wanted was to take a hot shower and relax... Out of four people, only one was able to enjoy a hot shower. The front desk was notified and the issue was resolved only two hours before our check out the next morning! Also, the heater... More

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
