Canoe River Campground
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Checked out all of the campgrounds in Valemount area before settling on Canoe River, mostly because they offered shaded sites to camp. At first glance it appeared pretty decent, but we found that it is a mecca for ATV and 4 wheel enthusiasts-- especially during BC Day three-day weekend, when Valemount hosts a "mud race" tournament. Friday night was pretty busy with lots of trucks and rigs pulling in until the wee hours, ATVs running up and down the roads raising clouds of dust, and lots of parties taking place, despite the advertising that ATVs were banned after 10 pm and quiet hours were to be observed. Not quite the "peace and quiet" we expected, but guess that comes with the holiday. Next morning found a quiet campground, but the one across from us featured beer cans strewn out into the road, unattended children running around, and a unwatched fire.
Bathrooms were far apart and not super clean, but I attribute that to the number of campers. Overall? Ok, but probably won't rush back.

Reviewed 9 May 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed here in a small RV in early May and it was an absolute pleasure. The couple that ran it were very friendly and very accommodating. We basically had the pick of any campsite as it was not at all busy. I can recommend any of the campsites closest to the paddock/rodeo arena as they are relatively well protected by clumps of trees and have a great view back to the mountains.

The amenities were very clean and showers worked well. Wifi worked well enough but the signal was weak. To be honest I thought it was great to get any signal as we were not that close to the shower block.

In short, I would gladly stay there again.
