Quinn Creek Campground

Quinn Creek Campground is located near the outskirts of Parson, British Columbia, which is found in a smaller town in the Rocky Mountains. The establishment offers 11 tent sites and 16 RV spots for guests to reserve roughly anytime from May through October, though they may open or close sooner or later due to the temperature. Another option that may be available to visitors is a cottage, which is capable of sleeping up to four people. The shower house has bathrooms, showers, and laundry machines that patrons can use at their leisure. The business is pet-friendly; though, the owners ask that pets be leashed while they are on the grounds. In 1992, the campground opened after a flood destroyed the farmland that formerly occupied the area. A few attractions that can be found within the vicinity include Golden Skybridge and Radium Hot Springs.


Quinn Creek Campground offers a total of 28 units that patrons can reserve. Of the units that are provided, 11 are tent sites, 16 are RV spaces, and there is a single cottage. The tent sites and RV slots have picnic tables and fire rings. Three of the tent spaces have shelter over the picnic area. Many of the tent sites are spread out, with six placed closer to the forest and the other five situated in a more open location. The units by the forest typically have enough space for visitors to hang hammocks. The motorhome sites have gravel pads and come with water, sewer, and electrical hookups. All of the electric hookups for mobile homes on the grounds have a maximum of 30 AMPs of power. Many of the RV sites have trees surrounding them, which may create a level of privacy for guests. The owner, Juliane, mentions that most of the spaces meant for mobile homes are pull-through and capable of holding "class A-sized motorhomes." The owner notes that there is one RV that she can rent to guests if they do not have one of their own. 

The cottage is attached to the office and is capable of sleeping up to four people at a time. It comes equipped with a bedroom, a private bathroom, a loft, and a full kitchen. Both the loft and bedroom have queen-sized beds. Included with the room is bedding, but no toiletries are provided, so patrons will have to bring their own soap, shampoo, and other bathroom necessities.

The establishment owns about 90 acres of land. However, only about 20 acres are accessible to visitors on a regular basis. Other buildings beside the units are the office building and the shower house. The office building is where patrons can go if they have questions or need something. The shower house has four showers in each bathroom, two in the women's and two in the men's. A washer and dryer can also be found, allowing guests to do their laundry while staying at Quinn Creek Campground.

Juliane, one of the campground owners, explains that there are few restaurants in the area as they are in a more rural location. That being said, she notes that many attractions and places may interest those staying at the property. Quinn Creek Campground is located in the Rocky Mountains, so a wide range of outdoor recreational activities can be done, including hiking, fishing, rock climbing, and more. Southeast of the campground, one can find the city of Radium Hot Springs, which is named after the naturally occurring hot springs in the nearby national park a short distance from the town. Golden Skybridge is found in Golden, a city located northwest of Parson, and is a large, suspended bridge that crosses over a canyon. 


Juliane and Eric, the owners of Quinn Creek Campground, want their guests to feel "like they are getting away from the city." While the business does have Wi-Fi available, they encourage patrons to spend more time in nature rather than being on their devices. Juliane and Eric interact with their visitors as much as the visitors would like. They try to meet them, help them get situated when they arrive, and remain open and available if they have questions or concerns. Juliane mentions that talking to patrons is one of her favorite aspects of running the campground, as this allows her to learn about why they are traveling through the area, where they are from, and where they plan on going.
Quinn Creek Campground has several policies that the owners would like visitors to be aware of before arriving. Juliane, one of the owners, mentions, "I want people to be respectful of each other." Pets are allowed on the grounds but must stay on a leash. Smoking is prohibited in indoor spaces, but it can be done outside. Quiet hours begin at 11:00 p.m. and last until 7:00 a.m. the following day. Firewood is available for visitors, but they must chop down the trees and collect the wood themselves. The owners have axes that they provide to patrons who would like to gather firewood. 

A majority of those who stay at the business typically learn about Quinn Creek Campground through the internet and the company's online presence. Many people have left reviews of their experiences at Quinn Creek Campground. One person who recently stayed wrote, "We had to stop in fairly last minute while coming from Montana through to Vancouver. The campground welcomed us with open arms and helped us pick the campsite best suited for our needs. They offered us free use of their multiple axes and firewood. The staff was super helpful, very friendly, and sorted out our drop-in booking really fast." The business is typically open from May - September, though the owners mention that it depends on the weather. When the temperatures get too cold, they have to turn off the water, which is when they close the camp, so they may open and close a little before or after their designated times. Juliane remarks that the typical demographic of occupants that frequent the property is "middle-aged families and younger couples." She also mentions that they receive many people who are retired. 


Quinn Creek Campground has been around since 1992. Before it became a campground, the land had a farm and several hay fields. A flood occurred, bringing with it much debris and making the land infertile for growing crops. Shortly after the flooding, the original owner turned the land into a campground.

Juliane, one of the business's current owners, explains that they were led into the industry because they were "looking for more space" and decided to purchase Quinn Creek Campground because "it's a beautiful area." One aspect of the property that she enjoys is the "openness of the grounds." The business is found in the Rocky Mountains, and Juliane notes that "when people travel through the mountains, it can feel claustrophobic," but the business is located in a valley where the land becomes more open.

Since Juliane and her husband, Eric, took ownership of the company in 2021, they have made various changes and updates to the business and plan on making more soon. Currently, construction has begun on a playground for children. In the future, they would like to add walking trails throughout the grounds and create an access point to the Columbia Wetlands. They would like to add an outdoor kitchen facility and a place where guests can clean their dishes after a meal.
