Canyon Creek Campground and RV Park
20 acres of secluded natural beauty on hi-way 97S
Hixon, British Columbia, Canada
|Two two RV Gypsies enjoyed this campground, even though there was no sewer hookup. Kim and Merv Harvey own the campground, and they greeted the two RV Gypsies with big smiles, as they worked on improving the park by putting in a flower garden. The campsites were not packed tightly together, which was nice. There is a big wooded area by the river for tents and small RV's. And really clean laundry and restrooms for all. The two RV Gypsies do not brag about campgrounds very often partly because they are not campers and do not use most of the amenities that might be offered. They just set up their RV and go off enjoying the day, returning to sleep for the night, of course.
and Merv have a sense of humor. Here are SOME of the rules and courtesies
while at Canyon Creek Campground:
1. Drive slowly - 8 Km/h - Dead Slow!
2. Quiet Hours 10:30 PM until 7:00 AM shhh! (Unless you invite Merv)
3. Swimming in the Creek is at your own risk. Drowned kids float to the Fraser River in about 1 hour and float into Vancouver in about 8 days.

They closed the gates to the campground at 10:30 P.M. and reopened the gates at 6 A.M. for security purposes. No gate code - just locked gates. So it is not advised to go out late at night here.

|Below: Some campers did come and park near the two RV Gypsies for the week-end. As the two RV Gypsies made new friends, everyone got together around a campfire, talked, played bocce ball, admired the stars at night, and had a great time. The other RVers were local people and on occasion they called the two RV Gypsies "Florida." When they left they said to the two RV Gypsies, "Have a good time in Alaska and dress warm, if you Floridians even know what it means to dress warm". What a great sense of humor. Everyone exchanged information to keep in touch. Thanks you for letting us get to know you and we hope to hear from you soon.
Below: This was actually the FIRST time the two RV Gypsies sat around a campfire while traveling. It was enjoyable because of the fun company.
