About Us

We are open all year long! Offering No-Contact Check In Services.

At Cougar Creek, we strive to make continuous improvements and upgrades. We love to have your feedback and suggestions on how we can improve our facilities. We are pet and quad friendly and we want our guests to enjoy their stay. Respecting your neighbors & other guests is always a Priority.

Cougar Creek Cabins and Campground is different from most of the campgrounds and motels in our area in that we have a bit of everything! We're a natural camping destination on 18 acres totally surrounded by crown land -- you can quad right from your campsite. We have PREMIUM treed back in power & water sites or large open sites or pull-through sites for your super unit, Premium tent sites along the creek or multi tent sites. All sites have a picnic table, firepit & wood chopping block.

Quad Friendly - We permit quad s & dirt bikes on the property. Speed Limit is 15 KM / hour & is strictly monitored, those who do not follow our guidelines, violate speed limit, stunt, or cause noise disturbance to neighbors, driving privileges will be revoked.

Pet Friendly -Pets are permitted (with fee). They must be leashed at ALL times, and you must ensure you pick up after your pet. Pets should not be left unattended at your site, in your camper, cabin or cottage.

Come join us to have some adventures, make memories, and cherish time with friends and family. We love laughter, music, and seeing people enjoy their time together; and we do everything we can to make your vacation a great one.
