Looking for a campground that offers spacious spots, clean facilities, hot-water showers, accommodating hosts and an all-round great vibe? This is your place! I was drawn to Egmont to see the rapids, but with hindsight the highlight was sitting around the campfire with Cheyenne, Dwayne and their friends (+ 1 very cute puppy!). Their genuinely warm welcome, and generosity of character were a true gift. This is what it feels like to find friendship even though you’re just passing through. I also appreciated their attention to detail; fun artistic signs add to the vibe of the place, and guests are encouraged to take a book from their library. Their campground and cabins are a short walk to the trailhead that leads to the rapids. There’s a fantastic bakery/café on the way - the perfect place to grab coffee or lunch. This location is unbeatable. Cheyenne: thanks again for your hospitality and kindness. I think of you guys often! Heather (the tour guide who lives in Victoria)

We stayed at Strongwater our very first night in British Colombia after a long day of driving and ferrying from the Vancouver airport. This place has so much charm and character. First, let me say that leading up to our visit, my communications with the owner/operator were pretty lax and informal. I didn't get an official confirmation of my booking other than an informal back and forth inquiry email that later served as my confirmation. This same relaxed feel continued when we arrived. The property has 11 campsites and 7 cabins. We booked a cabin, which was very reasonably priced. When we arrived, we made our way up some stairs to the "office" having to side step at least six or seven chickens that were just hanging out on the stairs. Hilarious. There was a note on the door that said check-in at the Skookumbus (an old painted bus that serves as a little roadside food stand - cute!). There we found Cheyenne and a few friends and family all hanging out around a picnic table. She was very friendly (and as expected extremely casual and informal). We made our way to our cabin encountering all manner of farm animals - chickens, roosters and baby ducklings - cute! Once we saw our little cabin we fell in love! We were in No. 4 (see map), which was one of the most secluded. I will say that none of the sites (both campgrounds and cabins) are particularly secluded and a few of them are pretty much right on top of others. I think the understanding, though, is if you're staying here, you're doing it for the charm, the price-point and the community feel of it all, which Strongwater has in spades. We had a restful night sleep in our adorable little cabin, though the described King Bed was just two twin beds pushed together. There were a few moments of being stuck in the crack, but otherwise we stayed warm and really enjoyed the whole feel of it. Checkout was, once again, extremely informal. We approached Cheyenne the night before we were scheduled to leave (as we were getting up really early the next morning) and found her around a campfire up at the Skookumbus hanging out with family and friends (pretty much right where we left her, haha!). I essentially just handed her the cash for the room, which she then directed at some other responsible person in the circle that I hadn't previously met. We thanked everyone for the great time and that was it. Even though we were there for less than 24 hours, we really enjoyed our stay. Personally, I would have liked a bit more of an organized structure to the payment system and the check-in and check-out process, as well as a little less nonchalance towards their guests, but it didn't bother me too much! I just interpreted it as that laid back B.C. vibe. Definitely put this on your B.C. checklist!

Camping Booked seven months in advance for the site with a view and power. When we arrived she had let the site out to someone else. She put us in one of the sites on main road.No power. Told me there was an extension cord I could plug in if I wanted. I asked for someone to hook it up for me. Someone came down and plugged it in for me and didn’t even bother to see if it worked..it wasn’t even plugged in to a power source. An other guest found the source it was to be plugged in only to find the breaker was off.The hosts never bothered even checking to see if all was okay.

We recently visited strong water campsite for the second summer in a row. There is plenty to do on the campsite, a few friendly farm animals to play with and also a spectacular lake just a short walk away. The camp site and facilities are well kept and the owners are amazing people that we spent a lot of time with. strong water will continue to me one of our summer stops and it should be one for you too!

Camped here for two nights during BC day long weekend (August 2019). The camp site was big enough for a large tent. Hosts were very welcoming and warm towards the kids. There are lots of chickens, ducks, rabbits and a pig, for kids to have fun with. The only two downsides for us were, a) the campsite location (#4) was by the main road in and out Egmont and it could be noisy at times and b) the were tons of small black caterpillar-like critters EVERYWHERE around the campsite, and we couldn't avoid squishing them, which was not the greatest sight. Overall I would recommend for camping, but try to stay away from the road.
