Have you ever pulled into a resort, hotel or a campsite and think, yuk this doesn't at all look like the photos online. Well this is not one of those places, WOW! in a word...WOW! You can back into a site on the bluff with the most spectacular views of Black Tusk, Whistler, Blackcomb Brandywine and other mountains you have ever seen. This must be one of the prettiest camping locations in BC. We're here visiting in October, yes it gets a little chilly at night but it's been really warm all day up to 16C. With a nice big fire on the bluff last night we watched a massive full moon rise over Whistler Mountain. This privately owned campsite was originally constructed for the 2010 Winter Olympics. It went through a change in ownership and is again open and undergoing the finishing touches that will make this campsite really something in the years to come. Many new trees are being added between campsites for a little privacy which will be nice, a chlorination system has been added to make the city happy but it didn't foul the water that I could taste. The full service sites include plenty of water, power, sewer hook-up and free wifi. For a $29 winter rate, not to shabby at all. We'd like to come back in the summer and see what things are like here. They are a short drive to Whistler Village, it seemed to take less than 10 mins. That should bring a lot of summer dirt bike riders out camping so close by, I assume when the snow hits the snowmobilers will be here as well. The management told us they are currently working with local groups to help develop the property surrounding the campsite for these activities. Friendly and helpful staff, new facilities, excellent camp sites, spectacular views, reasonable rates and a stones throw from Whistler Village, absolutely nothing to complain about here. You should have seen the sunrise over Black Tusk this morning, truly beautiful.
