After leaving Manning Park our plan was to head up Old Hedley Road and camp in some of the free sites along the river, but the weather was cloudy and threatening rain so we decided to look for an RV Park and use the hook-ups to flush out our tanks and catch up on some TV shows.
We stopped at Gold Mountain RV Parks and Cabins and at first glance we were a little worried we would not be able to turn around if we drove down into the park. Since there was a large pull off at the entrance to the park we parked Maxx there so that we could walk down and check out the RV Park. As soon as we stepped out of the truck Dave, the owner, came up to the top of the hill to great us and quickly assured us that there was lot’s of room for us to navigate in the park. Dave and his wife Tracey were quick to check us in and get us set up in a really nice site.
While this park does not have cellular service (we are told that is coming sometime this summer), they do have really strong free Wi-Fi, fire pits at every site, and a nice path down to the riverfront where you can fish, cool off or just enjoy some time in the sun.
The owners are also very accommodating and friendly! We enjoyed visiting with them and after some discussion we found out that Dave used to manage Bear Creek Provincial Park where we spent summers with our children. It turns out Dave and Tracey lived at the park with their three children and I remember our daughter always looking forward to going out there because she had made friends with the children of the people that run the park! Later we also found out that our youngest son has a common bond with Dave and Tracey’s daughter and son-in-law … It really is a small world … and not just in Disney Land:-)
We will definitely be back to spend some more time in this awesome RV Park along the Similkameen River.
Until next time …
