“Awesome cabin weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012 via mobile

We were nine members of a hiking club staying here for the first time. We would definitely go back! We had two beautiful cabins, in perfect condition, newly constructed, immaculate, spacious, and cozy. Each cabin had two bedrooms, a large kitchen, two bathrooms, and a woodstove. The only thing missing, for my liking, was a bathtub; the larger bathroom has a shower. There are two wonderful hot tubs, one hot and one warm, in the indoor pool area. These made up for the lack of a tub in the cabin, especially after our 16 km hike in Manning park where the conditions were great for our snowshoes. It took 35-40 mins. to drive to the trailhead in Manning, but the park trails are worth the drive because the hiking routes closer to the cabins could be noisy due to snowmobiles/ ATV's in the area.
There was a large group of snowmobilers staying at the cabins but we only heard one snowmobile revving up in the RV area on Sunday morning. Not sure what the rules are but this resort was quiet except for the one machine. I would recommend this place to other non-motorised hiking/ nature types. The cabins are much larger and wayyy spiffier (cheaper rates too!) than Manning Park resort.
The only inconveniences we experienced were minor, re the cabins being equipped: we needed more bathroom towels, tea towels, a tea kettle, and matches for the wood stove (there was fire starter in the cabin). The couple that run the resort are great, very helpful! They brought us some split wood and a hatchet for kindling when the firewood provided in our cabin (unsplit fence posts) took forever to catch. The the office hours are limited at this time of year (9:00 - 4:00) and we were either hiking outside of these hours or didn't want to track them down over minor details. It would have been nice to have the pool/ hot tubs open later too (they closed at 9:00) pm. The large rec room in the pool area was open later for the Canucks game on satellite TV. No TV in the cabins but there was Internet: for an additional charge of $3 the WIFI worked great!

MMMSVancouverBC,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed and positive review of Sunshine Valley RV Resort and Cabins. This resort opened last year as the newest addition to Holiday Trails network of RV Resorts and is our first to boast cabins. Your suggestions of additional towels, matches and a tea kettle are already being implemented. We greatly appreciate your feedback on how we can provide a more relaxing and comfortable experience for our guests.

Also thank you for the positive comments regarding our staff at the resort. I have passed this review along to them with thanks.

Sincerely,
Shaun Barbon

The best thing about this latest addition to the Holiday Trails chain is its scenic location in the Cascade mountains. Recently returned from a five-day visit in early October. The weather at this time of year changes quickly, but watching the fog, mist, and sunshine roll in and out was part of the experience.

Open since the spring of 2011, the resort is still undergoing some growing pains. The clubhouse will be spectacular when finished. They were still working on the laundry room and members' lounge area when I was there. The outdoor pool was closed for the season, but they have a fantastic year-round indoor pool with hot tubs. The park did not have cablevision (is apparently enroute) but I was indifferent about it. The WiFi system worked well; you will be charged extra for that option.

The RV area is still a bit rough. Gravel and dirt with cedar hedging between the sites. Many of the cedars had died, but was assured they will be replaced, and the sites eventually landscaped. I found the large, sharp, rocks in the gravel hard to walk on. Some of the rocks came right through the sole of my flip flops, and the dog had sore paws.

Some of the sites are close to the highway - expect some traffic noise - at least until dark. Highway 3 is very much the "lost highway" now as most obviously travel the Coquihalla since they removed the tolls.

The resort also attracts many ATVers but management does a good job making sure the ATVs do not roar around the campground. The ATV rigs are marshalled to the back of the park.

Being new to he RV world, I found the staff friendly and helpful. The park is well-supervised, but not oppressive. As a woman travelling alone, I felt safe while staying there.

Bearing in mind its somewhat remote location, construction delays are to be expected.

However, when this park is completed, it will be one of the premier RV parks in the province.
