We have been coming to Woodbury for over twenty years now and wouldn't keep coming if some of the above reviews were true. Number 1, new owners did not take over, the same owners have owned the resort for well over twenty years. Yes I do have to agree the washrooms have at times been in need of cleaning but when parents let their young ones go unattened to the washrooms children have a way of messing things up. The permanent people that have leased lots all pitch in and keep the resort looking very nice. When there is a fire ban on, resort may still have camp fires. The food is always very good up at JB's as are the pancake breakfasts and other functions that are held at the Rec Hall. I hope this has cleared up a few of the untrues about the Resort.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. This is more to the truth of Woodbury. It is a great family resort with kids running and playing. But it is also a big kids resort with the pub and fishing ect. People have to know that this is a remote location, its not the big city. So come here for the rustic charm of it all and take in the scenery. Thankyou, Managment

First of all the positives: The cabin we stayed in was very nice with a fenced in deck out back for our dog. The cabin overlooked Kootenay Lake so this was an added bonus. The area was quiet and very peaceful. The rooms and cabins unfortunately are not well miantained at all and definitely showing their age. The staff were polite but no overly firendly, in facxt the fornt desk person seemed quite harried when there were 3 people showing up at the same time. Our friends also stayed with us but were given a small cabin up against the mountain with bunk beds. We though that was quite odd. Watch out for the amenitieds as some cabins have no fridge, some have no stove so not great for families unless you camp with an RV. We stayed there last year as well but will probably move to somewhere else next year. PS watch out for the restaurant, the fish and chips are great but only half the size of what they used to serve, for the same price. WIFI is intermittent at best.

HI Dave, Thankyou for your review. I would like to comment on your friends room. That is the only room that we rent that doesn't have both fridge and stove. It does however have a fridge. We call it the Camping Cabin. Its got a deck in the shade and a nice bathroom and it's very affordable. Sorry about your front desk girl. There is always at least one newbie every year that is in training. The A-frames are old, but we have a lot of guests that like the Kootenay charm. We do have brand new rooms as well if thats more your taste. We would love to see you come back for another stay.

This RV Park is very conveniently located on the shores of Kootenay Lake with a Marina and Restaurant on site. Some stalls are along the shores with amazing views. It seems about 1/2 of the renters live there with their RVs built over with attached porches and extravagant landscaping. The people are very friendly in the resort and surrounding towns.

This is our first time to visit this place and we were just happy we did stay here for 2 nights. Our boys had a blast fishing and just really relax away from the city. Waking to up to the beautiful and quiet lake is very worth the long travel and money we paid. We will come back in the future!

We pulled our trailer in here last summer for a couple night's stay. Sewage smell in the campground. Fish cleaning smell near the marina. We decided to eat dinner in JB's pub one day, as they boast of the halibut & chips. Terrible greasy food. French fries were burned. We understood it is basically a "watering hole" for the owner and the riff raff from the trailer park.

We stumbled across this place while looking for a cabin to rent. The price was great, cabin was clean. Great for our mini random get away that we decided to take. We didn't go see the rest of the park, instead we went across the hwy to the 4x4 trails and came back hours later.
The only thing I would change is how fast the hot water tank takes to heat back up, after one family member has had a shower. We will be back!

Traveled the Kootenay's with an RV and this was the WORST place (by many miles!!) that we stayed at! There was a fire ban on, however it seemed every person in the RV area were burning camp fires. It was so smoky that our emergency venting system turned on. It was warm and we were unable to open the windows as we were unable to breathe.
To add insult to injury a local band was playing at the pub at the top of the hill and the music got progressively louder as the night went on. By 12:30 AM we had enough, disconnected our RV and made a run for it. We were so angry that had the gate been down I'm not sure we would have stopped!
The atmosphere of this "resort" (I use the term loosely, as 95% of the people there are permanent residents) was run down, loud, filthy. There was garbage at our camping spot and the last people used the fire pit to burn garbage!!!! Every nook and cranny of this joint had garbage, broken boats, scrap metal, etc. piled up.
Wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.

Very sorry you found our resort to be a nightmare. Most people like the fact that when there is a fireban, we can still have fires. It is such a part of camping. Half of our spots are permanent and those members take great pride in keeping their lots beautiful. The other half are rented out. JB's pub and restaurant does have bands from time to time and it contributes to a vibrant fun filled time for all campers and locals alike. We have requests on a regular basis to bring bands in. So again I am so sorry that you didn't enjoy yourselves. If you ever travel through again we would do whatever possible to change yur view of the resort. Thankyou, Managment

After traveling all day we sat down in JB's, told the waitress we needed to check in, she told us to eat and then check in, we arrived at the Woodbury at 4:30 pm after dinner we told the waitress what room we had reservations for, she said that the manager/owner gave our two night room away to someone else because we didnt check in before 5pm, we were there eating dinner in his resturant, his waitress told us to check in after dinner, he did not offer to fix problem since the hotel was now full, called another hotel outside of Nelson and said he would pay for two nights stay there, which we agreed to do, but once we checked out of our new hotel, the manager from the Woodbury gave them a credit card # that was a closed account thinking that he wouldnt have to pay and we would, WRONG!!! can not believe someone would do something like this. I am spreading the word, if he did this to me he will do it again!!!

We are very sorry for this unfortunate incident. The credit card that was given to the hotel was expired, but we promptley gave a new one and the hotel room for these people was paid for by Woodbury. Our check in plolicy has changed because of this story and we will always do what we have to so that our guests are satisfied.

Let me start out by saying I have stayed at this resort numerous times. I will never stay there again! We arrived approx 12:30 Am, with an assurance that if there was nobody at the pub to let us in our chalet, they would leave the chalet open and leave the key inside. Well the pub and office was totally deserted and the room was locked. After numerous calls to answering machines, I found some gusets that knew where the owners trailer was.
The light at the owners trailer was on, I knocked on the door and rang the bell. A very drunk and belligerent women came out aksing me who I was. I identified myself as a guest, a paying guest. She swore at me numerous times. Asking me what gave me the right to come over her bridge knock on her door etc etc. I tried to get the key for my room from her, apologizing for the late hour and explaining to her I was a guest with a reservation number and that the clerk had assured me the room would be open, knowing we were arriving late. After about 45 minutes we did eventual make it up to the main office, she drove drunk from her trailer to the office and I would have reported he to the RCMP but she was on private property.
The insults and being called a (--) finally left me no choice but to get in my truck and drive to Ainsworth Hot Springs Hotel. We were received warmly there and I highly recommend this hotel over Woodbury, unless you prefer to get berated, humiliated, embarassed and cussed out,..then you may want to stay at Woodbury.
P.S. I am suing Woodbury for breach of contract, and emotional distress. Did I mention we drove 7 hours to get (--) at this resort. Everything in this review has been documented to the hour and will be presented in a court of law.

This was the worst campsite we have ever stayed at! I would not bath my dog in the showers, and would use the bush over the bathrooms!
I had called and made reservations for the August long weekend to stay one night at this resort as we were passing through on a family vacation. The extremely rude lady at the desk (owner) said, "soooorrryy" when I attemped to check in and said that they were full. When I pressed further she gave me the run around and must have said, "soooorrryy" 10 times before I spotted our name on her reservation book. Then she proceeded to tell me that they didn't think I was going to show. Why on earth woudl I call, book a site, give them a Visa and not show? Anyways long story we got a campsite.
There is a fire ban, but you would never know as people had campfires lit all over the park.
The washrooms were gross! No toilet paper in any stall the next morning at 8am.
We had drunk people fighting and carring on from about 10pm - 2am with noone to enforce the 10pm quiet time.
Honestly, I could go on and on.... One of the ladies in the washroom said that it use to be a decent place until about a yar ago when the new owners took over. I would never stay here again and would NOT recommend this resort.

Sorry you had a bad experience. I can however say that your review is not the norm. And regarding the campfires, it is at the resorts discretion when a ban is on. I think most people love the fact that you can still have a fire here. Isn't that what camping is all about?
