Paradise Valley Campground is now under new ownership. We would like to extend our thanks to Lynn and Pat Wilbur for offering a wonderful escape to nature over the last 17 years.
The Wilbur’s began their adventure in 2001 and the first few years were a very large learning curve: camping was no longer just an activity for families looking for a quick get-away from BC’s lower mainland, but also for adventurers, and young people alike. Lynn and Pat realized that the campground could not offer all things to all people, and it became important to determine their market.
As the Wilburs got to know their campers better, it became apparent that relaxation has become a high priority for everyone. Appealing to those campers looking for a downtime experience has helped shape their business into a 28 acre private nature park. In response to the suggestions from their campers, they introduced a ”No Amplified Music” policy which means – no radios please. Of course, that does not mean that the campground runs in a meditative state, as acoustic guitar and singing is welcome.
The entire property, including washrooms and pay showers, are immaculate. Paradise Valley Campground’s location is known as “front country” – this area is a natural habitat for many forms of wildlife. Typically, wild animals fear humans and are rarely seen or heard. If they are attracted by food and/or garbage left out around the campground, their fear diminishes and they become what is known as habituated; the fear is gone and they take what they want. Keeping our property clean has prevented wildlife from becoming habituated. To this end the campground provides several bear proof garbage and recycling containers.
The Wilburs’ approach to running their business, and their deep respect of nature, have made the campground into a welcoming and safe place for campers– not only from the lower mainland, but from all across North America and the rest of the world. If you enjoy the great outdoors do not hesitate to plan one of your camping trips at Paradise Valley Campground. We hope to continue offering a quality camping experience to new and returning guests.
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!
As we approach the day of our camping, we realized that it was going to be a rainy day in the whole of Vancouver including Squamish. We called Pat and she was very accommodating to have us move one day later. It turned out that the next 3 days we booked ourselves prior to our children going to school will be sunny and clear. Our kids ages 9, 8, 6 and 3 had a blast, enjoyed the rock painting, the trail hikes and the fire pit. The campground is conducive to family camping. We are amazed at how the…
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.
Dear hosts. I searched the internet for a lovely campground before we left Germany to fly to Canada for a round-trip. As we had to drop off our motorhome in Vancouver I decided to choose a campground which is not too far away from the rental station in Burnaby. Arriving on your campground my wife and I fell in love with that spot. It is so charming and you as hosts are so friendly. Every site is as you discribed it on your website. So we are absolutely lucky and proud to stay here even it’s just…
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.
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…
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…
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.
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!
We had a fabulous time at your beautiful campground over the September long weekend. The campground was peaceful, well-maintained, and close to hiking and fishing. This is a great spot for families looking to get into camping with younger kids. Lots of space for them to ride bikes, play games–there is even ice cream and a bubble gum machine.We hope to come back next summer.
