What travellers are saying
- I walk the trail often with my two dogs on leash. I always worry where I walk with them as too many irresponsible pet owners think their dogs are ‘special’ and they don’t have to follow the on leash policy of the trails. But so far so GREAT - everyone seems so friendly - even the other pets and the odd horse at the western section of trail. ENJOY - the scenery is spectacular and there are bathrooms along the way.Written July 6, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The 2 people presenting the workshops were engaging and relevant for our age group. The kids really enjoyed the trip.
We learned about Beavers and Salmon. Seeing all the salmon spawning was a highlight!Written November 14, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Take mozzie repellant, bit of a steep walk if your not used to it. 10-15 minutes walk. Stunning viewWritten July 19, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The park was great, the slides were fun and food was all fairly priced. There are a lot of stairs so consider bringing swim shoes.Written August 23, 2022
- I’ve loved coming here for 30 years! The series of docks are great for all levels of swimmers and refreshing to jump in to the water. Water is warmer than other spots, more boat traffic now that the 90s because of all the developed houses right across from Main Beach. Playground was great for our 3.5 year old son (would say great for 3-8 year olds). Sandy beach was raked smooth and as the first visitors of the day (10am on a Tuesday in August) we got our pick of spots. Lots of shade available on the beach, washrooms close, picnic tables and benches. Concession available. Only downfall is high cost of parking but worth it for all the services.Written August 22, 2021
- Bridal falls is just beautiful. The park is awesome and the walk to the falls from the carpark is about 15 mins and we'll worth the visit.Written June 5, 2023
- You will feel like a kid in a candy store!! there is a whole room with various sweets that you can choose from.
Souvenirs, British foods and more. Unfortunately the museum was closed, but this is a sweet little British Shop that's a must visit!Written July 13, 2021
- We live about 1.5 hours away and camp at least one time here per year. Here are some things you should know before you go:
1. It’s BEAUTIFUL. the lake itself is stunning
2. If you want peace and quiet, choose Radium or Flora campgrounds. The closer to the lake you are the noisier it is at night.
3. That water is COLD. The earlier in the season, the more “refreshing” it is, but it will give you popsicle toes all summer. Once you are used to it, though, there is nothing better than floating on the lake, enjoying the view and the sun
4. Go early to the beach- if you burn easily, the shady spots go early. Sometimes we go to the doggy beach just to get a nice spot.
5. This is the one we go to for last minute camping- they reserve quite a few spots for FCFS (first come, first serve). You still need to go mid week to get one for the weekend, though.
6. The Rangers are fantastic. If you have small children, ask a Ranger for the BC provincial passport- they will write in it for your child and you can collect this for all the provincial campgrounds you visit.
7. The Lindeman lake hike is one of our favourites and has a spectacular view waiting for you
This truly is a beautiful campground. Enjoy!Written August 28, 2019
- When we went, it was pretty nice. A bit chilly but as you're going up the trails you get pretty warmed up and you feel great.
Quite often you run into individuals with their stupid dogs who are obviously not trained to be there with the owners. I blame the owners. Other than that it's a pretty good hike, nice lake at the end where you can relax. A large stone/rock wall oversees the lake and from the bottom it seems like little gargoyles are up on the cliffs.
Pretty neat hike, doesn't take too long to get up there. It's worth it!Written January 5, 2020
- We live in nearby Abbotsford (about a half hour drive away) and readily visit Chilliwack for concerts, film festivals, etc. We came here to see Alan Doyle and were very happy with his performance in this venue. It is just the right size (not too big) and the seating is a steep amphitheatre style where everyone has a great view of the stage. Highly recommended for whatever cultural event you would like to attend.Written March 9, 2020
- This location has a pristine lake and gorgeous view of the glaciers to the south. While the mosquitos weren’t too bad there were flies absolutely swarming us, which I haven’t experienced when camping before, not sure where they were coming from. The road up isn’t half as bad as others here are saying, you can make it up easily enough. We had a peaceful and tranquil experience hereWritten July 27, 2022
- Recommend poles for this hike. Good workout going up and poles are helpful especially coming down. The view is spectacular of Cultus and the valley. On a Monday the trail was not busy. Bring plenty of water. We did not do the extension to Thurston as it is another 4 km and we were out of time. Recommend an early start to take in the Thurston portion.Written June 20, 2019
- It was a fun day, but started off slow. The establishment opens at 11am, but all water areas were off limits due to chemical imbalances until 11:45. This meant for 45 mins the kids were standing around whining in the heat about the slides. I feel like this should've been dealt with by the time the park opened, and not waste 45 mins of something we paid for, as we received no compensation. We got there at 11 and left at a little before 3. Almost a quarter of our time there we were not allowed to use the water slides, we should've been given a quarter of our ticket price back (it's not cheap either, 3 people was $100).Written July 17, 2023
- My Dad and I visited this wonderful place with our friends last week. We planned to stay for about an hour before going elsewhere but unbeknown to us it was such a great place we managed to stay for two and a half hours. (given the chance we would have spent all day there!).
Plenty of artefacts and things to look at as well as small buildings to see and in some cases go into. An amazing array of old tractors/ horse drawn carriages/ traction engines/ cars and even a huge Marine steam engine out of the SS Canora which is being restored on site.
Most of all it is run by volunteers with some wonderful knowledge of engineering who are willing to tell you everything you ever wanted to know about old vehicles.
Most of all it's a 'donation only' place where you can give as little or as much as you like!
Please note it is a 'NO TOUCH' Museum but this doesn't effect the experience in any way.
My friends have told me they will be returning to the village with other visitors from England in the near future.Written March 22, 2023
- This place is located in an industrial zone in Sumas Rd where there is not coffee shops around so it was a great idea , so now people who work around - like me- can enjoy organic coffee and great bread , scones and all kind or muffins. We stopped to check the place and couldn’t resist to try it
You will find Anita’s at the end of the parking lot , real coffee , best bread !Written March 7, 2020
