Picking up New 19' in May!

Hello all, we will be picking up our new 19' at the end of May, on the 28th, and then have a few days before we head northeast up to Lake Louise for a week. Trip is pretty well figured out on the way back thru Montana, Idaho, and Nevada before we get home, but I'm looking on some feedback on Campgrounds within an hour of Chilliwack, that have hookups, so we can try everything out. Any experience with Harrison River RV or Coquihalla RV Parks? Thanks in advance for any help.

Larry Tierney

I realize that but since a lot have stayed Bellingham, Escape is familiar and has delivered parts there in the past, if the need arises. Too bad you are missing the rally that week, Osoyoos is about 90 miles east from the factory and again Escape can address some concerns if need be at the rally. Plus you can see 180 Escapes in one place, where else can that happen?

I know too a number of new owners stay at the Lynden KOA. It's just a few miles from Sumas. Since that's where your trailer will be imported into the USA, it's convenient.

We tried to work it out to get to the rally, but couldn't do it. We hope to make a future one. You and Donna have a good point, I'll check it out. Thanks!

Google Maps says it's about 50 minutes from Chilliwack. Our orientation is 0830, so I think we have plenty of time to head north. We have a Harvest Hosts site reserved for the 4th night out, just north of Tappen, before we head to Banff. I'm looking to stay within an hour of Chilliwack going north.

We always stay st Coquihalla Campground on July 1 . It is in a small town called Hope, has a great trails for biking and walking. Check out the Othello Tunnels or the wood carvings in the park. It is 40 minutes past Chilliwack. It is also at the start of the three highways to the north. Home | Coquihalla Campground

Thanks for the input, looks like we will try to stay there, just playing phone and email tag with them now! Winter gets in the way.
