Redstreak Campground was accessible to downtown and also accessible to trails/hiking spots like Juniper/Sinclair Canyon, Redstreak Loop, Valley View and Redstreak Restoration. After hiking, you can go to Radium Hot Springs to enjoy and relax! Disadvantage: If you're just using a tent, this campground allows you to use the gravelled area of your campsite only. It is hard to put your pegs around your tent. Overall experience: It was good. 4 stars!
So we had to pay for our park pass, I get that. But then a $60.00 fee for one night and an additional $8.00 for a fire pit? Well we bit the bullet on this one, but then the next morning we find that the main attraction in town, The Radium Hot Springs is experiencing "water troubles" so it's closed for a while. No advance warning and very disappointing to say the least. But we did see lots of Big Horn sheep on the road into and out of the campground.
This was probably our favourite campground from 2 weeks travelling in a rented RV. We only stayed one night to break a long journey so can't comment on local attractions etc. The site we had was very private, surrounded by trees and easy to park with our 25 foot RV. Shower facilities were excellent, very clean and with plenty of hot water. We had a fully serviced site and everything worked fine. There were bighorn sheep on the road up, and mule deer came to graze right next to us while we sat outside. As with all the Parks Canada campgrounds we stayed in, this was a very well maintained campground in a beautiful natural setting. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Older French female employee very rude and unhelpful. We were told to fit in a campsite too small for our 32ft RV. Most sites too small for average fifth wheel RV. Huge potholes in narrow roads. Sites empty but say they are booked. We will not be back.
Expensive booking fees to book. Expensive fees to change dates. The campground - being in the park - requires extra park pass payment, even when you arrive late at night and have to be gone by 11am in the morning. For us this worked out at $60!! Sites have zero privacy. Some immovable site tables are situated on the wrong side for RVs!!!! Showers are blocked: Shower heads are so clogged the water comes out of the remaining few jets with such force it actually hurts. Locks are broken or don’t work. The tables are old and disgusting. There’s green gunge around the drinking water faucets, we ended up buying water. You pay extra if you want a campfire, but because you’re not supposed to bring firewood you have to use theirs and it’s little more than damp splinters. There is little to do in the Kootenay Park, you can see pretty much all of it from the road, only the hot springs remain and it’s really not worth the detour. I wish I’d never driven 200km out of my way to visit here.…
