Riverside Park Campground

Located within Riverside Park, 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.

The park gates are open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. Free Wi-Fi is available at the campground office. Access to the park amenities is just a few steps away: playground, walking and running path, covered picnic area, beach volleyball court, unsupervised waterfront, and more!

The Riverside Park Campground is open from the Victoria Day long weekend through the end of September each season. (May 17 through September 30, 2024.)

If you require assistance with your reservation, please email us or call 250-567-3374, Monday to Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

Recreation Sites

Vanderhoof is surrounded by a multitude of recreational campsites. These sites are developed and 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 which 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 Tourism & Cultural Centre.
