There's Cottonwood (privately owned) campground just across the highway. We've stayed there twice for the convenience, but I wouldn't say I liked it.

Then there's Cultus Lake Provincial Park across town that is much more woodsy and campground-like. That'll give you a few minutes of towing, too, so that you try out your tow vehicle and hitch and mirrors, as well as all the trailer's systems while in the campground.

Either place gives you good access to town and shopping for anything you need and a possible return to the factory for anything that might need attention.

Camp sites near ETI - (plus motels/hotels)

We got these sites from ETI this week.

Some of the links did not work for me.
OOPS. I guess you got the same thing and are looking for personal experiences. Sorry for not reading properly.

If you require accommodations while in Chilliwack we recommend either the
SureStay by Best Western,
The Hampton Inn
The Royal Hotel Chilliwack
River View B&B.

They all give our customers preferred rates.

If you are looking for places to camp near Escape Trailer Industries I would recommend Bridal Falls, or Cultus Lake. Cultus Lake is usually quite busy this time of year and I don’t think they offer full-hook ups. There is also Cottonwood RV which is just across the highway from us. I have listed the contact info for these places below.

Bridal Falls Camperland:

Cultus Lake:

Cottonwood RV:

Chilliwack Lake:

Please feel free to forward any other questions you may have.

The only problem with Cultus Lake, or any Provincial Park within an easy drive from Vancouver, is that they can be like a zoo filled with people who are there to party full time. Some folks go to camp and some go to party. We never stay in parks that close to Vancouver.

Last June, when we picked up our new 21, we stayed the first two nights at Cultus Lake Provincial Park (although the lake/shoreline area was ridiculously overdeveloped, the campground was quite peaceful and lovely), then the next two at Springs RV Resort in Harrison Hotsprings (in a 'premium' site - pricey but nice; and enjoyable to explore the town and local trails). This gave us the chance to check out the systems with and without hookups, before we too headed slowly north, back to the Yukon!

I stayed at Cottonwood one night. It was meh. As in, close to things in town and eti. It was midday and i was leaving first thing in the morning, so it was fine. Just not your "camping" experience.
