Camp Foley Recreation Site – Chilliwack River Valley Series

So when researching this Recreation site it piqued my interest because I had heard of it before and had been up to Foley Lake many times but had never seen the sign for it along my way.

Well imagine my surprise when I found out it is literally just off of Chilliwack Lake Road and I have actually driven right past it multiple times! It is literally off the same FSR you turn on to go to Foley Lake!

Bridge over Chilliwack River just before the turn

Driving Directions: at the Vedder Bridge roundabout, turn right onto Chilliwack Lake Road and drive 26.5 km. Camp Foley is on the left just after the bridge.

Road to campground – blocked when closed

The group site is closed for the winter and the gate has been barricaded to prevent any vehicle access.

Garbage cans have been removed and this is now a pack in/pack out campground. There is an outhouse just inside the gate, the only one for the small group site.

This a group campsite, with 4 campsites set backing onto the banks of the Chilliwack River. It looks like the perfect place to spend a weekend with a small group of friends!

The only downside I can see to this gorgeous spot would be the traffic noise from the road, but maybe the river sounds would help drown that out.

There is a path between two large boulders leading to the river and the photos do not do the views any justice. It is beautiful and there are trails along the river all in behind the campsites so there is lots to explore.

Walking along the river listening to the sounds of the water, I couldn’t help but feel surrounded by nature and at peace.

My dog Zola found a few fish carcasses that appeared to have been pulled up from the banks of the river and busied herself peeing all around them.

As you can see from the photo above with my truck parked at the gate, that is Chilliwack Lake Road right beside it, so it would not be my spot of choice on a busy long weekend or anytime you know the main road will be seeing a lot of traffic.

However, it is a great option for campers with RVs that cannot go off-road but still enjoy the rustic vibe of a Recreation Site.
