“This is an amazing place.. Great people.. Great service.. I highly recommend it to the fellow traveller.. It’s been a great pleasure to be here and to have met such wonderful people…”
“…. The park is impeccably kept, the washrooms are immaculate and there is laundry available. Staff are efficient, friendly, but not obtrusive. The price is reasonable. The sites are level and include green space. We always feel safe and relaxed…..”
“We ended up at Kettle River RV Park at 9:30 pm … we desperately needed a place to stop for the night, as our original plan, 60km’s earlier in our travels, left us in an RV park in less than desirable circumstances. Even though Kettle River RV had “no vacancy”, they were extremely understanding and accommodating. Our safety and comfort were their first concern and they quickly found a suitable “parking spot” to get us off the road for the night. When we awoke this morning, we were pleasantly surprised by the beauty and cleanliness of this gem of an RV park…”
