Campgrounds in Chilliwack?

Hello all Escapees! We recently bought an Escape and are anxiously planning a trip out to pick up in May. We can hardly wait for the time to come. We were just wondering what campground in Chilliwack did others stay at when they picked up their Escape. This has been a great forum for us in making the decision to buy sight unseen. Thanks for the wealth of information provided by you all.

I bet Reace and Tammy will have some good ideas too.

Re: Campgrounds in Chilliwack?

There were two campgrounds close into Chilliwack. Tammy booked us into Cottonwood RV meadows. She said, "They are right near the highway and there is a Safeway just up the road from them and TradeMasters is directly across the highway (where our hitch is being installed)". This will give us a chance to "check things out" before we leave the fold and head back to Virginia (a Sunday drive away : - ))

Opps! I forgot to include the web site for the campground. http://www.cottonwoodrvpark.com/
Looks like a great location, just wish we could stay longer : - (

Not a campground, but about 25 minutes from Chilliwack is Fraserway RV. They have a huge new showroom with parts and accessories, should you need to pick up anything at the last minute. It's in Abbotsford just off the freeway.

They have a web site. Just Google.

Re: Campgrounds in Chilliwack?

Hello all.

Thanks for all the suggestions for both camping and shopping. We definitely will be ready to settle in for a night or two after a long drive and are really looking forward to finding some great camp spots on the way home. We figured Tammy & Reace could make a suggestion but after all the numerous emails from us already, we thought we'd turn to you guys instead. This forum is certainly a great source of information; especially for a "Escape" newbie. (Making the upgrade from '76 13' Boler to '08 17' Escape)

Thanks again.

Thanks for the link. It looks beautiful. I will keep that place in mind when I prepare for THE BIG TRIP.

Re: Campgrounds in Chilliwack?

That looks like a really nice RV Park. However, don't we have to take possession of our trailer in the U.S. if we're not Canadian? If that's the case, it may not be practical to cross the border again and camp in B.C.

Re: Campgrounds in Chilliwack?

From what I have gathered, the general procedure is to look everything over at the factory;pay any balance due;(if any);then camp nearby for at least overnight to be sure all systems are go. For example the H2O, toilet, shower, along those lines. I'm surmising that most things are checked before hand. The sewer system I'm not sure about. Another question to ask! Then subsequent to that, the trailer is brought to the border and there's a paperwork party and off you go!
Thanks for giving me another question to ask!
