Question RV camping near chilliwack

Hi all,
We are going to be picking up our Escape trailer Sept 08 2015. We are not only new to the escape we are complete novices to trailer camping. We have been tent camping for many years. My husband refuses to get in and out of a tent any longer. We are planning a few days at an RV park to do a lot of practice on how to hook up etc and want to be close to ETI, an hour or even two away is fine. Cottonwood meadows continually comes up, however I looked at some reviews and it sounds pretty horrible. Can anybody out there suggest possible alternatives. We do need full hook up

Thanks for your help

Erie:

Cultus Lake campground has full hookups and is about 15 to 20 minutes from Escape. There are also a couple of Provincial campgrounds up there as well but they don't have hookups. There are a few more but that would be the nicest to stay at.

Bridal Falls might be ok...no idea on how nice it is though.

Have been very happy with Wild Rose in Hope.

Use Google Maps.
Probably half an hour.

I stayed at Bridal Veil two nights ago. Clean, a nice basic restaurant on the grounds, 6' hedges between each site for privacy. Due to the holiday it was very full but I could recommend it over the Cottonwood and it's less than 15. Minutes from ETI.
