Northen Camp Rating And Overview

Recommended Posts

Since we are spending most of our time in camp, and it's a good idea to know what kind of installation you are going to. Like the star rating system of hotel, you could give your appreciation on thoses you visited.


Reminder: It's a camp, don't expect having a jacouzzi, king size bed and cable TV. But they should be a minimum of confort and decency.



1 star: Very dirty, no hot water, no illimited sat-com (phone-internet), no kitchen, like real camping.

2 stars : Clean, hot water, limited com (no internet), kitchen but no cook, explorer tent metal frame.

3 stars: Like 2 star with internet, cook and wooden tent insulated. washer-dryer

4 stars: Like 3 star, with really good food, no toilet cabin (like a hole in the ground) but a paco bag toilet or similar.

5 stars: Trailers, full equipped bathroom with water toilet, cable tv, activities on camp, extraordinaire cuisine, like a HQ camp, or other big site camp.


This rating systems is to be improved, so feel free to send me any suggestions. You must not use this to discriminate any company, and it's only to give others a over-view of a camp site.

Most of the company are trying to improved their site year after year, so they might check this forum to have some feedback, feel free to post any suggestion. Pictures are appreciated.

Please dont forget to include the year you visit the camp, so we know if the raiting is up to date.


Thanks, have a nice tour !!

Great idea!


Most of the camps I've been to have a cook, cable, showers, washers, etc. but not necessarily cell service or decent internet (some have facebook and other necessary sites blocked). But these are all private oil and gas camps, so I'm not sure how they would compare to other types of camps (although I used to treeplant and these camps are NOTHING like the old treeplanting tent camps!).

Helifor barge camps take tops! Plus great fishing literally out your front door. 5 Stars


Sloquete Creek (North end of Harrison Lake, BC) 2 Stars. One out of three sinks had hot water. Had to walk through the washroom to get to the other rooms. Black Bear greeting you at 1 am while on the can.......
