A nice campground close to Whistler

Submitted by yas on September 22, 2010

We just recently learned of this campground, located really close to Whistler. I was actually impressed with the campsites here - they are fairly large, private, and well-shaded. I suppose that, being so close to all the attractions of Whistler, this campground is very popular in the summer, however when we visited in early September it was virtually empty.
