Another Excellent Stay at Sagebrush

This is our second time staying at Sagebrush and it was just what we needed to do all the errands we had planned; laundromat, Costco, gas up and stock up on groceries to go north. Thanks again for the conversation and hospitality!

Simply beautiful

Great site and host, scenery is breathtaking. Lots of room to park and setup. Will certainly add to favourites

Awesome Stopover from Seattle to Banff!

Sagebrush was the perfect stopover on our way from Seattle to Banff
! We stayed two nights which were peaceful and quiet. Easy to find not too far off the highway, and easy to pull in an get set up. Erv was at the end of the driveway waiting for us. The next day they invited us to the patio and we spent a few hours visiting and telling stories and sharing a bottle of wine together. We'd love to stay again on our way back to Seattle. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality and kindness!

Quiet place, friendly host

Did not get to meet the host, but had good communication.
Nice, quiet stop-over place, plenty of level space to choose from.
If the opportunity presents itself, we will stay again.

Great place to stay.

We arrived in fire season but expected to be fine and we were. We drove into Kamloops for dinner with a friend and when we got back were told that we were on evacuation alert and the neighboring street was being evaluated as we stood there. We had a quiet night and survived.

Awesome overnight stay!

Highly recommend! We arrived late at Sagebrush Bench, but had a wonderful overnight stay! He was waiting for us in the driveway, very welcoming, gave us options to park the RV. Our AC was busted, he directed us to a local repair shop. Gave us lots of awesome tips for attractions for the kids, travel options, and other recommendations.
We plan to be back on our return trip...

Nice Hosts with Spacious Property

We spent two nights with our 30 ft motorhome on this beautiful and spacious property. The host was very nice and gave a lots of information related to travelling. We had lots of privacy on this spacious property. Behind the hosts' property are plenty of hiking trails. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again!

Had the pleasure of staying at Erv’s place for one night. Quiet and dark, nice views, mostly level. Erv came out to greet us and was also kind enough to provide some tips and ideas for things to do at our destination (Vancouver Island). 😊

We were still on the road at 8 pm with no place to stay due to a washout at our planned forestry campsite. Erv graciously accepted our desperate plea for a place to stay. He even came out late at night to mow the field for us. Thanks for everything Erv. It’s a beautiful spot too!


September 2019

Quiet spot to stopover.

We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere that surrounds this location, and found it to be an easy, level pull through for our large rig. 😊


July 2019

Thanks again for fitting us in. This was our 2nd visit here.


June 2019


Lots of space, and a beautiful sunset with a very kind host with a good sense of humour, who helped us a lot in finding our way in his wonderful country. Many thanks, Erv!


June 2019

Great place to stay

Passing thru from Calgary to Vancouver; this was a convenient, quiet spot for the night. If heading west, use the directions provided. Google maps took us on a shortcut over a rather bumpy, washboard gravel road. This is a large lot, so there is lots of room between you and the house. After we got settled, the host drove down in his quad to say hi. This was our first time using BDW, very happy. :)


June 2019

Great host

we were pretty late, but he guided us to his property and showed us the right spot for the night.
Thanks a lot!
