Looking for campground in/near Chilliwack, BC

What is a good RV campground in Chilliwack? We are trying to book Cottonwood Meadows RV park, but will entertain other ideas.

Looking for campground in/near Chilliwack, BC

We stayed at Royalwood just down the road from the factory. We spent our first three nights there after picking up our trailer. Nice place with cheap rates.

It's called Haynes Point and was likely fully booked a year ago. It's also several hours to Chilliwack.

My bad, my mind was thinking about the rally...

They call it sẁiẁs Provincial Park now. It is now managed by the Osoyoos Indian Band. Beautiful campsite I have many memories of camping there in the 70's I hope the band keeps it up.

Good catch, Hugh.
The site is apparently important to the Osoyoos Indian Band, and the Band also operates the generally well-regarded Nk'Mip RV Park (just down the road from sẁiẁs) where the annual Escape Trailer Customer Appreciation Rally is held. My guess is that the sẁiẁs Provincial Park campground will be kept up well.

Of course, it isn't near Chilliwack...

There's Sunnyside Campground at Cultus Lake, about 8km (5 miles) south of Chilliwack. Huge campground with a variety of sites, many back-in full hook up sites. There's also Cultus Lake Provincial Park which is 13 km (8miles) south of Chilliwack. No hook-ups, so good time to test out boondocking skills! Both in very beautiful area and fairly close to ETI.
