Bear River RV Park, Stewart, British Columbia

Despite its name, this RV park is not set along a river, at least that we ever saw. We were in and out of this place pretty quickly. Previously in our journey, we ran into some friendly folks that said, "You have to get to Hyder!" After talking to them at lengths, we decided to re-route our itinerary and squeezed in a night near Hyder. Hyder, Alaska has a populuation of around 50 people, so camping there is only available at one place that we saw. This tiny town has TONS of stuff to do including visting Salmon Glacier, eating at the Seafood Express (a MUST) and visiting the US Forest Service's Fish Creek Wildlife Observation Site where you can observe bears feeding on salmon from a platform above the river and at very close proximity! Bear River RV Park is in Stewart, which is the Canadian sister town to US's Hyder. The towns literally border each other
and travel across the international border is required to pass from one to the other. This park is one of a couple in Stewart and we found it to suit our needs perfectly. Sites here are typical of an RV park. RVs share a pad with a neighbor, but large grassy areas are on your door side. People here are friendly and many conversations about travels will be had. The park has all the usual RV park amenities: hookups, laundry, limited wi-fi, a small store, shower houses, pay telephone. The perk that had us excited was the self-RV wash for a reasonable price. This presure washing bay is covered and has soap, brushes, and pressure washers to freshen up your rig after driving the dusty roads of the Yukon. All you need to bring is your coins (Canadian Loonies). All sites are on level dirt pads and interior roads are dirt. This was the perfect stopover for us while visiting Hyder. A small store for amentities is available in town.
