Riverside Park Campground
Located along the banks of the Nechako River, the Riverside Park Campground is the perfect combination of camping in the woods and exploring small town wonder. While far enough away to have an authentic camping experience, the Campground is only a 10-minute walk from the Vanderhoof downtown core – in case you need something from the store or want to take in some local cuisine.
The Riverside Park Campground has 38 camping sites, with two pull-through campsites and three spots with double sites. Each site allows for trailers and tents, and all have water and electricity connections available (four sites with 50A electrical service). There are bathrooms and showers available for all campers within the park. Free WiFi is available at the campground office. The park gates are open at 7:00 am each morning and are closed after 10:00 pm. The Campground is located within Riverside Park. Access to the park amenities is just a few steps away: playground, walking and running path, covered picnic area, beach volleyball court, unsupervised swimming area, and more!
Bookings must be made through the online portal. If you arrive at the campground without a booking, you will be required to go online and book a site.
The Riverside Park Campground is now open and closes September 20, 2023.
From September 6th until 30th, campers MUST BE in SELF-CONTAINED units. Bathrooms and showers will be closed for the season. The water and sani-dump services will remain available as long as the weather cooperates.
We can’t wait to have you camp with us!

Provincial Parks are maintained by the Province of BC. They usually offer services, and can be reserved online.
Vanderhoof is surrounded by a multitude of recreational campsites. These sites were developed and are maintained by the Province of BC, and are found by accessing BC’s network of Forest Service Roads. They are free, unserviced, non-reservable campsites that are generally more rustic than Provincial Parks. A Backroads Mapbook is a must-have for road-trippers in BC, which maps out all the recreation sites and trails in the Province. You can purchase a Backroads Mapbook at the Vanderhoof Visitor Centre.
