Wapiti Comments & Reviews
Visited Wapiti Campground lately? We'd love to hear about your adventure. Did you find us useful? Did we forget something? Anything our community should know before heading out to Wapiti?
Can you accommodate 5th wheel RV at 37′ with 30 or 50 amp power needs.
Wapiti campground has plenty of sites than can accommodate a 37′ RV, but the electric hookup sites (1-21) are only 15-amp.
Is there swimming allowed?
There are areas you might be able to swim/float in the the river close to Wapiti, but the water may be swift/cold.
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.
Yes you can park a car in your RV site. Have a great trip.
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?
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?
Our RV is 37 feet long and do you have either 30amp or 50amp?
