While both the park itself and Chilliwack Lake are without question stunning and worth the trip, I can't say the same for the government run Provincial camp grounds. I had planned on staying at the site for three nights, but cut my trip short after an awful single night. I encountered rampant drug use, drunkenness, loud music, fighting, swearing, firearms, dogs off the leash barking, etc. It all started at about 4:00PM that day, and the partying went nonstop all night and well into the next morning. When I asked one of the apparent ring leaders from the main party, a prominent local real estate agent, to turn things down for the evening as it was after curfew, I was threatened with an assault. I did report this immediately to one of the Provincial Camp Hosts as she drove through on patrol. She responded by saying that there was nothing that she could do, because the local R.C.M.P. refused to drive all the way out there to back her up. She recommend that if I felt in danger that I should leave, and that is what I did a short time later. What a waste of time and money! Needless to say, my written followup complaint with the park operator received no response. Definitely not family friendly, relaxing, inviting, or safe. Hopefully in future the government will clean this place up, but until that time I would strongly advise that you avoid it at all costs!
