Pets are welcome at Paradise Valley Campground, and please remember:
The campground season opens April 26th and closes after the Thanksgiving Long Weekend.
No, but we do ask that you contact us to advise your estimated time of arrival to ensure that your site is saved for you.
Because we are front country wilderness, we do have wildlife in the immediate area, such as deer, coyote, racoon, squirrels, bobcat, and black bear, to name a few. We have never had a problem with any of the wildlife. We believe this is because we have bear proof garbage cans, which we empty daily and because the property is immaculately maintained. Further, we ask our guests to ensure that they keep their garbage and their food in their vehicles when they are not at their sites, or when they are sleeping.
None of the above. We are only 10 minutes to the closest grocery store and 15 minutes from Squamish Town Centre. We do, however, sell ice, ice cream, chips and candy, coffee and tea, and some beverages (also known as: camping essentials).
We sell firewood at $8.00/bundle. We charge $1.00 for five minutes in the showers. There are also items that can be purchased in our little concession in the office.
Most of our sites are private, except the sites used by groups or families camping together.
Fishing, river rafting, kayaking, bouldering, birding, biking, hiking and walking. We do rent bikes, but for other activities, please bring your own gear. If you enjoy hiking, there is an intense hike (straight up for 1.5 km) Thompson Trail to Brohm Lake directly from our property. There is also a network of trails that can be accessed at the top of Thompson Trail. Squamish is the “Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada”, and we are only 15 minutes or so from any Outdoor Recreation in Squamish.
Even though the Cheakamus River runs along our property, we do not have sites set up on the river. We believe that all our guests should have access to the river’s edge, and a trail has been created for everyone’s use. Swimming can be found at Brohm Lake for the extreme hiker (one hour straight up Thompson Trail), or for the younger children, Alice Lake is your best bet. (8 km from the campground, across Hwy 99).
We have 30 acres of nature to explore where trails have been created. We encourage parents to bring their children’s bikes and we offer complimentary paint for painting small rocks. We also have two grass areas where kids can kick a ball around or play catch. We do not offer man-made park amenities. For property layout, check under the Maps Tab on our website.
Our reservation system is set up to accommodate one reservation per site. If two or more sites are needed, then a reservation is needed for each site. As stated in our policies, four adults may occupy one site, or two adults and their children. If you are enquiring about a group booking, which exceeds four adults in a site, or two adults and their children in a site, please call our toll free line, 1 800 922 1486 (local calls: 604 898 1486). If you need to determine availability for more than one site, please call our toll free line. (Side Bar: If you are a family of two adults and more than three children, please include three children in your reservation and note in the Special Requests that you have “X” number of children in total.)
Yes – however, we are a very small operation and there are only two of us that can manage phone calls. Therefore, it will be much faster for you to use the booking engine on our website which is totally secure.
Reservations are required Thursday through Saturday. Long weekends (minimum three night booking) are usually fully booked at least two months in advance. Regular weekends are usually reserved full at least two weeks in advance. While it’s not required reservations during weekdays are recommended if you want to be guaranteed a site. Many guests request specific sites. We will do our best to honour the request, but we cannot guarantee the site assignment even if it is confirmed when the reservation is made. Please note that all sites are assigned before arrival and cannot be changed unless there are unassigned sites available.
After much trial and error, and numerous sleepless nights for campers and the owners/operators, the solution to a persistent problem of noise after quiet time was to try a “No Amplifed Music” policy. We couldn’t believe the difference in the noise level throughout the day, as well as the evening. The campground became a place where one could hear the leaves in the breeze and birds singing. N0 AMPLIFIED MUSIC is now a hard and fast rule that has created a very tranquil experience for anyone camping here. Music lovers can go to just about any other campground, but this one is quiet.
Earphones are encouraged if you would like to listen to music, and quiet guitar strumming around your campfire is enjoyed by most, as long as the guitar is put away and the singing stops at 10:00 pm.
It was a beautiful stay we have had in a long time. The place was clean/quite/friendly. We really enjoyed our July long weekend with the cousinhoods. We thank you the ” STAFF ” got the wonderful welcome. Our kids have once again greeted nature as it should be and away from the computer/games/tv world. Although me did made some noises playing our acoustic guitars and serenaded all the wildlife to bed but not the other campers as they simply liked what we played for them. We look forward to comimg…
Hallo Pat, hallo Lynn, wir hatten im Juni 2011 das Glück Euren Campground zu finden. Hier ist Natur, Ruhe, Entspannung und Harmonie alles an einem Platz vereint. Diese schönen Erinnerungen daran werden wir beide wohl nie vergessen. Beim Wandern konnte ich für mich dort das eindrucksvollste Bild von „Beautiful British Columbia“ (Trail zum Brohm-Lake) fotografieren. Eigentlich wollten wir nur eine Nacht bleiben. Gott sei Dank haben wir uns das nochmals anders überlegt, und blieb…
Vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit auf dem Paradise Valley Campingplatz! Wir sind jetzt schon seit einer Woche wieder zu Hause in Deutschland, doch in Gedanken immer noch bei Euch. Es war eindeutig ein Paradies und es war toll. Wir haben vom 14. August 2009 bis 15. August 2009 bei Euch campiert – unter dem Namen Grunewald… Ihr wisst schon, BRENNHOLZ ; ) Paradise Valley war mit Abstand der beste Campingplatz, den wir auf unserer Reise besucht haben. Die ganze Atmosphäre war einfach SUPER! Die Idee…
My boyfriend and I were camping at your wonderful site a few weeks ago. We loved it. The quiet atmosphere and beautiful scenery made it a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back and will recommend you to all our friends and family. Thanks again for your warmth and hospitality. We will see you next year!
The problem with writing a review like this is that when you find a gem like this you want to keep it to yourself so that when you go and book your site you will get it. However, that would be selfish. If you are looking for a peaceful get away then this is the place. The sites are very large and private. My biggest beef about camping is that you never know who your neighbours are and how noisy they will be when it is time to settle down. Not here. The peace and quiet was just wonderful. It w…
Paradise Valley campground really is a camping paradise. The setting is beautiful and peaceful, the grounds and washrooms are kept immaculate, the owners are friendly and welcoming. Our one concern was the trains, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that they were never an issue, even at night. Thanks Lynn and Pat for a wonderful camping experience.
Paradise Valley ist ein so herzlicher und freundlicher Campingplatz. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Die vielen farbigen Steine, und die hausgemachte Seife sind nur ein bruchteil von so vielen kleinen Details 🙂 Grosses Lob für die Toiletten und Duschen. Die sind sehr ordentlich und sauber. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit. Vielen Dank für die Gastfreundlichkeit! Alles Gute und liebe Grüsse. — We want to say, that your campground is such a heartfull and lovely place, that we enjoyed o…
We are so happy that we found Paradise Valley Campground. Pat & Lynn (the Owners) are the most obliging couple to be around. Nothing is a problem for them. They made us feel very welcome. They are so knowledgeable about the area. If you need a hiking or biking trail they will tell you where to go. The owners work very hard to keep the campground peaceful and environmentally friendly. It is beautifully clean. The showers and toilets are amazing, sparkly! The sites are large and private, which is …
Just wanted to say thank you for a beautiful stay. You have a lovely, peaceful place and the rock painting was great fun. One of the best places we have stayed!
Thank you for providing the good times we enjoyed at Paradise Valley Campground this past summer. As regular campers, we recognize and appreciate the hard work, dedication and professionalism that were offered to campers on a daily basis. At a low price, we benefited from nice homely clean washrooms, really nice hot and strong showers, bike rentals, firewood, snacks, etc. However, the broad smiles and friendly positive attitudes were free. We look forward to camping at Paradise Valley Campgrou…
