“A great introduction to camping in Canada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

This was our first stop on a 3 week RV camping holiday in British Columbia and Northern Washington. We booked it from the UK in order to ensure somewhere to stay on our first night. We were welcomed by the owners and had several friendly encounters with them during our stay. Our pitch was in a forest clearing and came with a picnic table and a fire pit. The washrooms were opened by an entry code and were clean and adequate. Hot showers were not free but were operated by Canadian dollars on a timer. We loved the campsite. There were waymarked trails in the woods down to the river and up to the salmon hatchery. The campsite was a little way off the beautiful Sea to Sky highway north of Squamish so there were plenty of other trails within driving distance. Overall, a great introduction to camping in Canada.
I hadn't read any reviews before we booked but the internet site tempted us. Reading the recent comments posted about rules by Tripadvisor members and the reply of the owners is interesting. I was only aware of 2 rules - no amplified music and no gathering of firewood from the forest floor. The first one was obvious to me because I have been in campsites before where fellow campers actually thought they were doing me a favour by sharing their musical choices with me! I am glad there is such a rule in this campsite because I much preferred listening to the woodpecker in the tree next to our van. As a city dweller from England, the reason for the second rule was not obvious to me but the owners explained that when people "clear up" fallen leaves and wood the forest floor soon becomes barren. My own opinion is that the owners have done a great job in creating a quiet campground in the forest and (in my case) educating their visitors about the way to treat the forest for sustainability.

Stayed here in June 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed it. A well-laid out campsite with plenty of space at each pitch. Friendly owners managed to book me in for an extra night at a day's notice too, so overall an excellent experience.

A beautiful campground with lots and lots of greenery - trees, bushes, shrubs, plants of all kinds and heights providing a pretty backdrop as well as some privacy. Sites were in an excellent condition,complete with picnic table and firepit. We had to do quite a bit of maneuvering to get the RV within reach of the sewer hookup, but eventually it worked. The little house in which reception is located doubles as an ice-cream shop, and there's a "take-a-book-leave-a-book" basket. You have to pay for hot showers, so make sure you've got some change.

One thing you should know: this campground comes with a *lot* of rules. Rules on the website, rules at reception, rules glued to your picnic table. We almost didn't pick it because the website sounded like the owners might be fussy. But we got a very warm, friendly welcome, and the overall atmosphere was cheerful and relaxed, not controlling as we'd suspected. We enjoyed our stay here a lot and made the most of the beautiful location.

Paradise Valley is a really cute Campground with very nice and helpful Owners. Sanitations are clean and well-kept. Its really suitable for families with kids. Its a friendly and peaceful place to relax. The sites are private and large with fireplace and fair price for fire wood. It was the best camp we have been while two weeks in B.C. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!!!

Pat and Lynn own and run Paradise Valley campground. What nice caring people and a clean and beautiful facility they keep. We traveled in an RV with our 8 yr old twins and we had a blast. There is biking, hiking, and beautiful scenery right at the campground. We were only 40 minutes away from Whistler and minutes away from downtown Squamish. The campground is clean and the other guests around us were very friendly and quiet. The camp sites were very spacious. We look forward to going back again!

I've stayed at this campground three times and have never been disappointed. The owners are fantastic, and the campground is beautiful and well maintained. Close enough to Whistler to the north and Vancouver and Stanley Park to the south. I'm sure it's even better now since the highway has been improved. I would definitely stay there again and hope to sometime soon!

I stayed here with my family, and really enjoyed the experience. Beautiful property, and well run little facility. I would definitely stay here again. Nice and close to Alice Lake for day-time fun with the kids, and some beautiful walking trails down to the Chekamus River.
