Gave It One More Try
Tried to get in this campground last year only to find out it’s now reservations only, didn’t have reservations, so travelled home (3 hrs away). This year made a reservation for one night mid week (38.00 + 12.00 reservation fee). Arrived mid afternoon only to find people in our reserved site. They said they had the site booked, but trying to confirm date/site etc started to be a problem. They said they would pack up & leave (took them 2 hrs to do this). Still no hosts on site, no fire wood available, no cell service in lower portion but can get cell service once you drive up to main entrance road, not sure about water as a sign on the pump said boil water advisory. On the plus side, pit toilets were very clean, no smell & appeared well maintained. Campground was about 99% full the one night we were there, so it’s still being well used, with visitors from western provinces & couple in next site from California. Not sure if we’ll bother trying to camp here in near future.

It’s been 3 years since our last visit, campground has improved, pit toilets are pressure washed once a day (no odour & clean), no water available, power @ most sites (only 2 along river have power), wood available from parks people who come thru late afternoon. Host on site. Upper part of campground is for reserved sites (very few trees & open) lower portion has treed & river sites. No dump station, but dump station available in town of Lundbreck (main street next to fire hall & free). Excellent nachos @ Oldman River Brewing company (micro brewery) (blue building as soon as you enter town of Lundbreck) only a few km from the campground. Lots to see & do in the area.

Nice Spot But No Drinking Water
Water posted as not advised for drinking so had to stop at the gas station in town where they let us get water from the bathroom sink. It was a nice spot along the river but not that clean. It was reasonably quiet at night despite local road across the river and Route 3 in the distance.

Not Great This Year - June 2016
We've camped here many times & really enjoyed it, but this year there was no campground host & it's gone down hill. Whole area was messy & needed grass cut & general clean up, washrooms very smelly & no wood for sale on site. Also some of the plug-in posts had been damaged by people backing into them & needed repair - while we were there one shorted out & started a small grass fire. Parks people came around once while we were there. Having said this campground was almost full for a Monday/Tuesday, the falls were great & was told fishing was good. No sani-dump at campground, but there is a free one in town (a couple kilometres away) behind the fire hall, easy to get to & use. Overall a nice area, but they do need someone on site.
