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.
We have an on-site store offering basic supplies such as coffee, tea, ketchup, candy, batteries, flashlights, personal items, scooped ice cream and a variety of snacks including chips and drinks. If you don’t see something you need please ask. We are only 10 minutes to the closest grocery store and 15 minutes from Squamish Town Centre.
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 sites are set-up to accommodate one camping unit (trailer or tent) per site. Double sites and group sites can accommodate more than one trailer and/or tent. You are welcome to book as many sites as you need for your stay. As stated in our policies, four adults may occupy one site, or two adults and their children.
If you have any questions about booking a site or need suggestions about what will work best for your group please contact us by phone toll free line, 1 800 922 1486 (local calls: 604 898 1486) or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
We recommend reservations, however, we are happy to accommodate drop-in guests whenever possible. Long weekends (minimum three night booking) and regular weekends are often full so we recommend reserving if you want to be guaranteed a site.
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.
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…
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…
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!
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…
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 friends and I are very happy that finally we found a Campground that we could go back over and over again. We just had a blast.
Thank you so much for having us at your beautiful and welcoming campground. Paradise Valley is – by far – our favorite spot in BC … it really made our trip! Thank you also for incredible, hot showers and huge, declicious ice cream cones … we will never forget you generous scoops! We’ll miss you …
This was the most lovely campground we have been to on our tour from Toronto to Vancouver. Although we stayed for only one night, ice cream and service was wonderful and relaxing. Many thanks.
Paradise Valley was one of the best RV sites that we stayed at on our Canadian tour. The site is extremely well run, tidy and equipped. The owners are welcoming and very helpful. It is well worth the short drive from Squamish, which itself is worth a visit, as is the Squamish Spit, if you are into kite and wind surfing. Squamish also has a small, but interesting (if you like railways!) museum. An extra bonus at Paradise Valley is the nearby railway line where the occasional Whistler Mountaineer …
