Rapids Recreation Site – One Peaceful Night By the River!

Located in the Beautiful Chilliwack River Valley, off of Chilliwack Lake road, is a gorgeous Recreation Site located on the banks of the river. Fall asleep listening to the sounds of the river, the calls of birds and the wind rustling the trees.
Popular for dirt bikers and quads on the weekends, you can ride right out from the campground, making it convenient but also less peaceful.
