Kilby Park is operated by the Kilby Heritage Society, a charitable, non-profit community-based group, which also operates the nearby museum on behalf of the Province of BC. The 3 hectare park is famous with bird watchers, as hundreds of wintering bald eagles come to the area to feast on spawning salmon in late autumn. Graceful trumpeter swans also migrate to the area all the way from Alaska.

Kilby campground is a beautiful riverfront park with wonderful pioneer history associated with it. Within walking distance you'll discover a 5 acre historic site, Kilby museum, farm, café and gift shop. It's well worth a look through the 1906s general store, post office, and boarding house to get a feel for life in Harrison Mills back in the day. Exhibits reflect the turn of the century when steam wheelers and ferries linked Harrison Mills with larger towns such as Chilliwack, Mission and New Westminster.

Two key rules you may want to consider before booking are:

  • 1. Quiet Hours: Quiet hours are from 11 pm to 7 am. Please be considerate of your neighbours. Excessive noise, as well abusive or offensive language is not allowed at any time.

2. Alcohol: As this is a family-oriented campground, no alcoholic beverages are to be consumed outside of your campsite. Excessive drinking may result in eviction.

An accident report, dated near the customer’s arrival date is required to support the request for a refund.
