Squamish offers many kayaking opportunities. Whatever your experience level there is a water way that will work for you. Experience the rush of river kayaking, or the calm of lake or sea. Paradise Valley Campground, being situated along the Cheakamus River, is in a convenient location to jump start your kayaking excursion. For guests with experience and their own equipment, the Cheakamus River is considered a short, but fast rush water run from the Upper Cheakamus, or for longer runs the Ashlu is a popular option. For the beginner or more moderate experience, Alice Lake and Brohm Lake are quick jaunts from the campground by car. If you are interested in sea going kayaking Squamish downtown (beside the federal government marina) has a launching area. To rent equipment, there are different options. Squamish Tourism is always willing to provide contact information for the different operators.
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 …

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…
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…

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…

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…

Well, what can we say. After our amazing RV road trip starting from Vancouver, over to Vancouver Island, then Whistler, onto Jasper, through the Icefields Parkway to Banff, then home to London from Calgary, your campsite was ‘THE BEST!’ on whole trip….and we stayed in many. What a delight to stay in such tranquil and beautiful surroundings. Our pitch made us ‘oooh and ahh’, and felt like we had our own little piece of forest! The calm that came over our three children as they relaxed and paint…

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.
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!
