Thousand Trails Cultus Lake

We arrived at TT Cultus Lake a week ago today and have enjoyed our stay thus far. The park is located on Columbia Valley Road, Lindell Beach near Chilliwack on the southernmost tip of Cultus Lake, about half a mile past Maple Bay Provincial Park and about 10 miles from the Canada/USA border. The park is heavily treed with huge mountains close by, although some sites do offer good views of the southern sky for satellite TV and internet. Many RVs here have tripod satellite units. We have a Kingdome and have not been able to access Bell ExpressVu in site 98. But then a motorhome from California in site 96 has been able to get Direct TV without any problems. May be his bigger dish I suppose. Our roof mounted Datastorm internet satellite dish with a BEV bird on a wire will be installed on Sep 9, so hopefully we’ll be in business with BEV.

The park has a wonderful 25 meter pool and is located right next to Aquadel golf course. This is a par 3 course which we hope to try out next week. The store stocks the usual items and is open through the Labor Day holiday weekend. The family centre has internet available as well as big screen TVs, games, book exchange, etc. There is pay wifi available in the park as well. We opted for this convenience and paid $22 for 14 days. Again, our Datastorm installation should make this the last time we have to pay for wifi.

Apparently, TT Cultus Lake used to be much bigger and also had a park model sales area across the street from the present day park, but this portion was sold off back in 1997. Fortunately, we have been able to get free access to the sold off portion, so we can play pickleball at their courts. New pickleball courts were planned for TT Cultus Lake but have been put on hold for the time being.

The sites are quite large, gravel pads with real green grass! This was a wonderful improvement over what we have experienced in Alaska this summer. WES available on most sites. Power is 30 amp. Water pressure is not great but adequate. This being the last holiday weekend of the summer, the place is hopping. Walking around the park yesterday, it was evident that many rigs will be checking out right after the holiday weekend. If required, we should be able to move our motorhome to a site with a better unobstructed view of the southern sky for the Datastorm.
