  1. Dan K Albury says:

    Can you accommodate 5th wheel RV at 37′ with 30 or 50 amp power needs.

  2. Is there swimming allowed?

  3. Hello,

    Do you allow car parking in your RV site? I am planning to reserve a tent site that allows RV. Instead I am going to bring in my car.

  4. Gary Hammons says:

    We will be staying in Wapiti Campground next month for a week. Really looking forward to it. What advice would you offer about cooking outdoors/grilling during our stay?

    • Hi Gary,
      You should love Wapiti campground and the area . . . much to see and do there.

      Here’s a couple of tips for cooking/grilling in the great outdoors:
      – Plan and prepare your meals/food before hand and freeze them (especially the meat).
      – Cook on or over coals (either wood or charcoal) as this will give you a more steady, event heat without the smoke.
      – Heavy aluminum foil always comes in handy.
      – A net/screen tent-enclosure (one that fits over the picnic table) is nice to have as there may be some evening bugs

      Anyone else have some camping/outdoor cooking tips for Gary?

  5. Our RV is 37 feet long and do you have either 30amp or 50amp?

    What is the cancellation policy?

    Do you allow small dogs?

    How is the cell phone service? What is best cell phone provider?

    Is it Full hookups? If not, is there a dump station?

    • Hi Melissa,
      Wapiti Campground allows pets, does not have a dump station and cell service is not available. Campsites 1-21 have electric (only) hookups. All are 15-amp. You can check availability, pricing, cancellation policy and make a reservation by clicking on the “Make A Reservation” button.
