Are you just wanting reviews on private campsites? Most province's campgrounds have links to them on the province's website.
There you will find information and pictures as well as how to reserve a site.

There's some regional review sites, but you need to narrow down to at least the region you intend to visit to point you in the right direction.

Good luck with VCR. Not much choice or quality. We always stay at Hazelmere or Peace Arch since we used to live in White Rock.

1) You should go to Whistler....stay in the downtown Riverside RV Park....forget the Passport America one about 10m before town.

2) In the Okanagen....Canyon Farms in Kelowna or Swan Lake in Vernon.

3) In the Kootneys...Kimberley Riverside and in Radium...Redstreak (Parks Cdn)

4) Banff & Jasper...no brainer...Parks Cdn (Tunnel Mtn-Banff, Lk Louise, Whistler Mtn- Jasper)

5) Whitemud - Edmonton

6) Why would anyone want to go to McMurray... the moon is prettier!

7) Calgary may be even worse than Vancouver...Bowrivers Edge in Cochrane is a better bet or McLean Creek in Bragg Creek.

Good luck

Check out All Stays They have information on Canadian sites.

They make a great app too, I use it all the time.

Tunnel Mt in Banff is great, (town is very busy in summer months). Great drive from Banff to Jasper (National park in Jasper is awesome). Lots of wild critters in these areas and some much bigger than yourselves (woke up one morning to elk around RV in Jasper and Bear walking by in Banff). Also bring your gas card for our fuel is much more expensive up here. Fill er up before you cross the border. Also the Dinasaur museum in Drumheller Alberta is a must to see. Good camping there also.

If you ever venture cross the praries and into Manitoba here's something you should check out; Grand Beach, one of the highest rated fresh water beaches in the world. About an hour north of Winnipeg. Even though it is -30 F here today in July 90-100 F is not a stretch (bring your sunscreen) Google Grand Beach Manitoba images as well as Manitoba Provicial Parks.

Hummmm - current wx in Winnipeg according to the weather network is -20C or -4F. The forecast low for morning is -21C = -5.8F

By the way -30F=-34C

Did you mean WEC Temp? Which is currently -27C /-16.6F

Either way a long way from -30F but still damm cold no matter what scale or whose thermometer you use and I doubt there are many mosquitos hanging about.

In Vancouver area also consider the Cariboo RV Park in Burnaby. Bit tight but have stayed there with a 40 foot and two friends have 45 footers. Convenient to high speed rail.

We found #99 from Whistler through to #97 was not a pleasant drive.

Agree, Cochrane Bow Rivers Edge is the best bet in the Calgary area.

Tunnel Mountain in Banff is a great choice, but no reservations so arrive early in the day.

The Fort McMurray highway will be busy with heavy truck traffic and although we have never been there, likely very limited or crowded facilities due to housing pressure.

Edmonton Golden Embers on the west side is adequate. There is a nice RV Park in Stoney Plain but it is a bit far from Edmonton but on the right side of Edmonton for the Mall.

Leaving Calgary drive west on #1 to #40, go south through the Kananaskis Park, take 541 east to # 22, on #3 go east to Pincher Creek, go south on #6 to Waterton Park. Good RV Park and all the scenery of Banff and Jasperoffer but not the crowds. I am not suggesting bypassing Banff and Jasper.

From Wateron take #'s 6, 17 & 89 south to St. Marys. Drop off coach or FW and drive the Going to the Sun highway through Glacier National Park and have lunch at the lodge at the south end of Lake McDonald.

I just received our 2013 Good Sam RV Travel Guide (Woodalis) in the mail. I suspect they will have an online version that covers Canada and Mexico as does the Catalog.
It may be GoodsamCamping.com

Libero- Wish I had your weather station, for last night -27 C with wind chill factor -35 C. As I sit here with our weather channel on 11:20 am -24C with wind chill -33 C which is splitting hairs on -30 F. No worries. You're right no mosquitos now but we haven't had many at all for the last 2 summers. Believe it has been due to the high heat we have been having in the summers which makes camping great as long as your air conditioners are working. Thanks for the info on C-F conversion but I think I got it all worked out.
