Paradise Valley in the Sea to Sky Region
There’s a nice private campground in the area, appropriately named Paradise Valley Campground. It makes for a good and affordable place from which to explore the area.
Of the two main camping options in the Squamish area, Alice Lake is our first choice, primarily because of the lake for swimming in the summer and the free hot showers. Paradise Valley though places a close second. Rarely do private campgrounds come close to comparing to ones in provincial parks, at least in our opinion, but Paradise Valley is an exception – it’s a great one.
The camping season at Paradise Valley runs from around the beginning of May until close to Thanksgiving and rates are reasonable for a private place. They have a “no amplified music” policy, which most guests appreciate, while campfire singing and guitar playing is welcomed.
Just steps away from the Paradise Valley Campground is the Tenderfoot Creek Salmon Enhancement Hatchery.
Camping During COVID-19
The campground at Paradise Valley was closed for a while because of the outbreak for the novel coronavirus. As of June 12th, 2020, however, it had reopened (although without the washroom facilities).
The 2021 camping season looked a little different at the Paradise Valley Campground. Masks were mandatory within all indoor facilities, unregistered guests were not permitted and campsites were restricted to one family. Restrictions at group sites were based on the provincial government’s health region guidelines. For more information visit the Paradise Valley Policies page.
The campground opens for the 2022 season on April 29th. The same COVID restrictions from last year still apply.
