Our second stay in the Pine Meadows lower section of this city-owned campground has been as enjoyable as the first, despite the rainy weather. Sites are large and well-spaced, a few along the river have magnificent views. The campground offers good walking paths near the river, a small swimming pool, a miniature golf course and grassy areas for volleyball or other games. In mid June the meadows abound with brilliantly coloured wildflowers.
The campground, showers, laundry and restrooms are clean and well-maintained. Staff are friendly and helpful. Riverside is a little oasis itself, and a great base for exploring nearby Kimberley, Cranbrook or Fort Steele. A campground host checks the Pine Meadows area each evening and helps ensure peace and quiet for all visitors. This unique campground has more services than the average provincial or national campground, but larger, more private spaces than the average privately-owned campground. They are also flexible about reservations, changes and cancellation. If you come, you will likely want to return, especially if you book head and reserve one of the preferential sites.
