Great guy

Site was easy to access and private while being open at the same time. Irv greeted us after driving down from his house in his ATV. Nice guy and offering his site just to meet people.

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. 😊

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

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!

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. :)

Thanks a lot!
