Spruce Grove RV CampgroundOther reviewers at rvparkreviews.com

September, 2016

The Lowe’s overall rating (based on value for the money,
quality of amenities and utilities, site suitability and what
we believe other RV’ers in our situation would be looking
for) = 7 out of 10 stars

Decent site spacing, level sites and strong utilities
Pull-through sites had patios with a table and fire pit
Some seasonal folks had back-in sites near the office

Noise level and overall “feel” of the campground?
We really weren’t at the campground much during our stay, as we visited
friends every day.  When we were there it seemed fairly quiet during the day
with little traffic through the park – no exterior traffic noise and only slight
noise from an occasional distant train.  Very quiet at night.

Road and site access?
Interior roads were hard-packed gravel that was not dusty.  Sites consisted
of a type of asphalt, and they were very easy to access.  Both back-in and
pull-through sites were available, we had a pull-through (#155).

Condition of sites?
Our site was long enough to park the car at either end of the coach, so it
was quite long.  There was a nice attached patio that held a good table and
fire pit.  Spacing between sites was fairly close, with no vegetation to
separate them.  This was a new campground, only about 3 years old, so the
trees were immature and didn’t provide shade.  Our site was level enough
that we didn’t need our jacks, and most other sites in our area appeared to
be level as well.

Utilities offered and their quality?
Full hookups, with 50-amp power – a rarity in Canada.  The power and
water were strong.  WiFi was provided, but we didn’t have time to try it out.
No cable available as far as I could tell, we used our satellite dish.  The
Verizon signal was good.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Both, as mentioned previously, and they were of good quality.
Unfortunately we didn’t have the time or weather conditions to try either.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
Bathrooms and laundry facilities were very nice.  There were several
washers and dryers, which worked off a pre-paid card system set up at
the office.  Bathrooms were modern and clean.

Pet friendly?
Dog lovers will love this place!  There was a HUGE off-leash fenced lawn
area with a path through it at the front of the park, and we saw many dogs
having a blast there every day.  Possibly the nicest off-leash area we’ve
seen at a campground.

Bicycle/walking trails nearby?
We didn’t see any trails right out of the park, but then again we were gone
most of the day every day and didn’t have time to investigate.

Groceries & other services nearby?
The town of Spruce Grove had several grocery stores and some
restaurants – it’s a medium-sized town with some services, but maybe not
for major RV repairs.  There was a mobile RV repair advertised, however.

We really didn’t get a chance to check this place out properly during our
3-day visit, except for the laundry and bathroom facilities which were
nice.  Good utilities and Verizon signal, a nice level site and a quiet place
as far as we could tell.  I rated it a “7” because that’s about as high as I go
for a “parking lot” type of campground, but it really was a nice place and
we would definitely go out of our way to stay here again if in the area.
