Canyon Creek Campground and RV Park
20 acres of secluded natural beauty along Highway 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. The Harvey's could be seen working on improving the park by putting in a flower garden. The campsites are not packed tightly together, which is nice. There is a big wooded area by the river for tents and small RV's. And really clean laundry and restrooms.

Here are SOME of the rules while at Canyon Creek Campground:
bullet 1. Drive slowly - 8 Km/h - Dead Slowly!
bullet 2. Quiet Hours 10:30 PM until 7:00 AM shhh! (Unless you invite Merv, of course)
bullet 3. Swim in the Creek at your own risk - drowned kids float to the Fraser River in about one hour and to Vancouver in about 8 days.
a nice entry way to the park

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.

When a few campers arrived, the two RV Gypsies met them, and everyone got together around a campfire, talked, played bocce ball, admired the stars at night, and had a great time. The local people called the two RV Gypsies "Florida." When they left they said "Have a good time in Alaska and dress warm. Do you even know what it means to dress warm?." What a great sense of humor. Everyone exchanged information to keep in touch. The two RV Gypsies really enjoyed meeting them because they were wonderful, friendly, fun people.

This is actually the FIRST time the two RV Gypsies sat around a campfire while traveling. It is not really in their plans to do this very often because they travel mostly to see the scenery. But on this date, with their new friends, it was quite enjoyable and relaxing.
