FAQs

Pets are welcome at Paradise Valley Campground, and please remember:
– we ask that pets be on leash and not left unattended.
– please clean up after your pet.

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: camp@paradisevalleycampground.net

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.
