Many of our sites are grassy and others are graveled. Most of our RV sites are surrounded with mature shade trees. We supply potable well water, 15 and 30 amp hydro and sani-sewers on almost all of our sites. Most of the sites are 30′ to 45′ long but we have sites for larger rigs up to 48 feet or longer. We recommend that guests with longer rigs call and reserve a suitable site in advance if at all possible.

Our WiFi is very strong and all of the RV sites get a good wireless signal from 5 hotspots. As well, 3G cellular service is good here from Bell, Telus and Rogers. We offer 6 free TV channels via in all of our sites (except tenting) and we have Bell and Star Choice satellite dishes available in all of our RV sites. On request, we can also provide DVD movies to our guests.

Our washrooms are famous for being very clean and coin operated hot showers are available. We have 2 laundry facilities with washers and dryers and our outdoor clothes line is free to those who prefer the natural way of drying clothes. Our common area has a love-seat swing and outdoor chairs for your relaxing comfort. We do not permit campfires in the RV sites but our common area has a fireplace and a propane BBQ for your use.

If you are bringing your pet, we have a large off-leash area complete with pickup bags and container for pet droppings. We request that pet droppings be placed in that container rather than putting them in our food garbage containers.

To be environmentally responsible, we have 2 buildings one each for food garbage, styrofoam and cardboard and another building to store recycle refuse such as bottles, glass, cans, plastics, egg cartons and newspapger. We supply appropriate garbage bags for use in separating and depositing your refuse.

The RV Park oparates from early April until late October each year. The cabins operate year-round; during the summer tourist season they rent to vacationers on a nightly or weekly basis then in the off season renting by the month or week from Sept to April often to college students from local Selkirk college or trades people on temporary assignments in the area .

About Us

We were living in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta and considering a business venture that would offer the opportunity of an early retirement.  The Kootenay’s called our name, and on August 14th, 2015 we purchased the RV Park and Campground in Castlegar. The area directly appealed to our interests as we both love the outdoors and enjoy working with people. Since owning the park, we have had the privilege of hosting people from all over the world. We continue to enjoy success and fulfillment as more and more people discover the Castlegar area. It is a fantastic place, to live work and play. Castlegar maintains the ambience of a sleepy mountain retreat while offering diversified industry and economic growth.
