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.
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.
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 …

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.

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…

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…

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…
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.

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.
