Review and Tips 
NOT FULLY OPEN YET.. 3185 Adventures’ campground is nestled in a 147 acres of the Robson Valley, with the snow-capped Caribou Mountains on one side, the majestic Rocky Mountains on the other, and the mighty Fraser River winding through forests. The Robson Valley presents a healthy treat for the mind, body and soul. Explore forest-covered sand dunes, alpine meadows and glaciers in the Rocky Mountains and rare inland rainforests. Visit Mount Robson, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies or hike through the ancient cedar forest, an area undisturbed for thousands of years with cedars over 1000 years old. We believe everyone should be able to experience the great outdoors and we cater to everyone from every walk of life, no matter how big or small your budget might be. From just £30 ($60 Canadian Dollars) per week you can enjoy camping surrounded by some of Canada’s most amazing scenery. For those with a bigger budget we can offer fully equipped “glamping” tents for as little as £300 ($600 Canadian Dollars) per week, sleeping up to 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children in each unit. We also won’t charge a premium during school holidays so it remains affordable for families during these times. Guided tours will be available upon request including back country hikes, one of which is to Barkersville an old gold mining town. "British Columbia’s central interior has been profoundly shaped by gold thanks to a simple, working-class English prospector named William ‘Billy’ Barker who, in 1862, spearheaded a twenty-year, multi-billion dollar industrial revolution that literally helped build a Province. Today, the extraordinary town of Barkerville (named in Billy’s honour) still stands as testament to BC’s golden beginnings. With a unique streetscape of 125+ heritage buildings, authentic displays, satellite museums, restaurants, shops and accommodations there is still so much to explore. Declared a National Historic Site of Canada in 1924 and a Provincial Heritage Property in 1958, Barkerville is now the largest living-history museum in western North America, where exciting seasonal events and fun-filled daily activities await." (extract from Barkersville website) Photographers will find this area to be a paradise. Forget about watching nature shows on television, just grab a camera and watch as the residents of the Mount Robson Provincial Park appear before you. More than 182 species of birds have been discovered in the park, from majestic golden eagles, to American Pipits, Hammond Flycatchers, Rufous Hummingbirds and Great Grey Owls. Lots of mammals can also be found in the park, from moose and deer, to the mountain goats in the alpine tundra. Both black and grizzly bears make a home in the park, as do elk, deer, wolf, coyote and caribou. All four climatic zones within the park provide habitat for various species. Arrive in June for the annual Mount Robson Bird Blitz, or show up in autumn and be there as the leaves turn vibrant shades of yellow, red and orange. Also, how could we forget to mention Big Foot!! Back in October of 1955, William Roe hiked the 4.5km trail to the old Mica Mine site. It was here in the late afternoon that he came out of a patch of low brush into a clearing and saw what he first thought was a grizzly bear— it was not a bear. Roe would sign an affidavit swearing that he saw a Sasquatch, and consequently putting his stamp on British Columbian folklore. Go for a hike, walk quietly, keep your eyes peeled and maybe you’ll spot this elusive creature. For the winter visitors, some of the best alpine powder sledding in North America is right here! Elevations vary climbing to 9000ft. Access trails to endorsed areas are groomed throughout the riding season. Trail user passes are required and can be purchased at the trail heads, starting late November. Unlimited opportunities for snowshoe enthusiasts exist in the Valley. Easy trips to waterfalls and valley viewpoints or more ambitious treks to backcountry cabins for an overnight stay are possible. We also have a private lake on site which, if you’re lucky, we will clear the snow off and create a winter ice skating rink. We are in the very early stages of setting up the site and can only except campers at the moment. If you want to do some very back to basic camping while were creating this site feel free to pitch your tent. If your really nice I might let you spend a night or two in my cabin :-)
