Summer might be coming to end, but that doesn’t mean the fall season doesn’t have much to offer! In fact, the fall camping season is just as celebrated in the #Rvlife as the summer season – only this time, you get to sip on hot cocoa by the campfire. And with the trees having their beautiful transition, there is no shortage of stunning campsites to visit in Southern BC this season! To make sure you get the most out of your upcoming fall camping adventures, check out our top recommendations of where to camp near Chilliwack!
Located just off of Chilliwack Lake Rd. and running along the banks of Chilliwack River is the stunning campsite of Allison Pool. Here you’ll find seven accommodating campsites that can be reserved throughout the year – including the fall! If you or your family enjoys catching their dinner, the Chilliwack River offers excellent fishing for all species of salmon plus steelhead. For gorgeous, green views, the site has access to the Trans Canada Trail and easy river access for kayakers. Calm pools in the river in summer are a great way to relax and cool off. One thing to note is that ATVs aren’t permitted here but may be tucked away in your toy hauler to ride in the surrounding area.
