Google Review for RV Site 1 by Sean in February 2024: Beautiful location, great sites, excellent amenities with a great community kitchen and community building. Tom was also very friendly and easy to deal with. Will be going back.

Google Review for RV Site 2 by Joshua in October 2023: (Translated by Google) We stayed there for one night with our RV. It was in October. It is a beautiful place and also has many trees. The spaces are large and it has a table, benches and a fire pit. There is a common room and lots to discover. The owner even took the time to inform us about the region. The price was almost too cheap compared to the average in the region. In the evening there were also white tail deer running around the RV. Only recommended.

(Original)
Wir waren mit unserem RV eine Nacht dort. Es war im Oktober. Es ist ein schöner Ort und hat auch noch viele Bäume. Die Plätze sind gross und es hat einen Tisch, Bänke und eine Feuerstelle. Es gibt einen Gemeinschaftsraum und Vieles zu entdecken. Der Besitzer hatte sich sogar Zeit genommen uns über die Region zu informieren. Der Preis war schon fast zu günstig gegenüber dem Schnitt in der Region. Dazu liefen am Abend noch white Tail Deer um das RV. Nur zu empfehlen.


Google Review for Tent Site 3 by Joshua in October 2023: Alright campground if you like camping out in somebody’s backyard for an expensive price. Also being able to see hid neighbours houses well you camp. He was a good host though.

Google Review for the Tree Hut by Mark in September 2023: I stayed at Valhalla Pines Campground for three nights in September, 2023. Beautiful campground in the beautiful Slocan Valley. Tom is a great host, and very knowledgeable about activities in the area including knowledge of the many great hiking trails in the surrounding area as well as info about the many other activities in this beautiful area. Highly recommend!

Airbnb Review for the Tree Hut by Donavan in September 2023: lovely stay among the pines. thanks for everything tom – hope to return one day.

Hipcamp Review for Tent Site 2 by Michael in September 2023: Beautiful quiet campground, plenty of space between sites, and awesome community bldg w/refrigerator, stove, tables, couch, and two clean private bathrooms. Tom is an excellent host, very helpful and knowledgeable about nearby hot springs, waterfalls, rail trails for biking and hiking, and beaches along rivers and lakes. I will definitely be back!!

Airbnb Review for RV Site 1 by SallyLynn in September 2023: This was a beautiful setting, so peaceful and quiet, with great amenities -flush toilets, showers, and an indoor kitchen if needed. We were impressed by the comfortable community room, complete with wifi. Tom is a great host: available, attentive, and respectful. We will be back.

Airbnb Review for the Tree Hut by Chris in August 2023: I needed a quiet space for a couple nights, while on my way home from a lengthy camping trip. With rain in the forecast it was nice to have a place over my head. The place was simple and met my needs. I didn’t make use of the kitchen or community building, but it was nice to have that option. Tom communicated right away and was helpful with directions.

Hipcamp Review for the Hut with Bunk Beds by Julie in August 2023: Tom runs a great campsite: it was quiet, welcoming, in a beautiful setting with lots of trees and a community vibe. It’s just far enough off highway 6 but also close to the Slocan river and trails.

Hipcamp Review for RV Site 2 by Lauren in August 2023: We parked our little trailer on Tom’s land for two nights and had a wonderful stay! We camped with our kids. Campsites were well spaced, clean, and surrounded by beautiful forest and mountains. Our site was connected to a well marked trail down to the community building which was awesome. Lot of resources (maps, recs, kitchen, bathrooms, showers, music). Our kids loved it, there was a cute kids’ tree house for them to explore. We left the campsite during the day and hiked at Valhalla provincial park. We love how eco friendly Tom keeps everything. Can’t wait to come back!

Airbnb Review for the Hut with Bunk Beds by Lisa in August 2023: Tom’s place is a beautiful spot tucked away in the Valhalla range . The common kitchen area and two bathrooms are beautifully finished , clean snd well equipped. The sound of the crickets lull you to sleep. Tom a gracious host . Both friendly and kind . He has created a beautiful refuge with a collection of unique huts nicely soaced for privacy.

Hipcamp Review for the Hut with Bunk Beds by Kyana in August 2023:The whole property is beautiful and very convenient for campers. The community building is a huge bonus for tenting campers. Showers were nice and clean as well as the kitchen. Tom was super kind and had great advice for things to do around the area

Google Review by Stacy in August 2023: Tom’s place is awesome. Very quaint. He is very welcoming and it’s very close to the river.

Hipcamp Review for the Hut with Bunk Beds by Joanna in July 2023: Great place in a beautiful area of the Slocan Valley! We stayed in hut 1, which was perfect for my daughter and me, and our dog who loved sleeping under the bunk bed in her ‘den’. We met other people staying in various huts and tents when mingling in the community kitchen – a great component of Tom’s place, available to cook in, store food in the fridge, eat at the table, or just chill out. Tom is generous with providing two bathrooms with showers and two kitchen sinks. I recommend Tom’s place

Hipcamp Review for RV Site 2 by Alain in July 2023:Tom is very welcoming. It’s very quiet. The community building is great and well maintained. Shower are very clean.

Google Review by Meghan in July 2023: Quiet campground with nice community kitchen, campfire and washroom facilities. There is no cell service, but the site has great wifi. There are cute little cabins to book if you don’t have a tent or trailer.

Airbnb Review for the Tree Hut by Tim in July 2023: unique clean place bundled in the woods, one of the best stays we had during our road trip ! Thanks for having us !

Hipcamp Review for Tent Site 3 by Rob in July 2023: Fantastic spot. Tom was extremely helpful and shared regional events in the area. Very peaceful setting, the community building for showers, cooking , and lounging are modern , cozy and welcoming. I highly recommend if you are travelling through or want a good base camp to explore/bike the Slocan Valley.

Airbnb Review for the Tree Hut by Diane in July 2023: The tree hut at Valhalla Pines is one of those things that you have to experience if you enjoy nature and peaceful surroundings. It was the perfect size for my daughter & I. I enjoyed spending time on the balcony. The community area had all the amenities we needed to prepare our own meals and refrigerate items that needed to stay cool. It was also a great place to meet other like-minded people! There is wifi on-site and washrooms with working toilets and showers. During our stay, we had a group of turkey come through the campsite and on our way home, we saw some deer. Some sheep could also be heard in the distance. It was the perfect location to disconnect from the realities of everyday living and just enjoy the simple things in life!

Hipcamp Review for Tent Site 5 by Heather in July 2023: Tom had excellent recommendations for nearby locations to visit and the communal kitchen/bathroom shower area was such an oasis for tent campers. Great host!!!

Airbnb Review for the Tree Hut by Nellie in July 2023: Lovey spot and cozy hut. Great value for what we paid. Tom was friendly and helpful.

Airbnb Review for the Tree Hut by Carol in July 2023: This is a hidden piece of heaven! It’s beautiful here! I rented the Tree House and it was so nice and comfortable. They have showers, bathrooms, full kitchen to use and share. I now wish I had stayed 2 nights to just relax a little more. The other guests were so friendly that you really felt like home.

Hipcamp Review for Tent Site 3 by Matt in June 2023: I loved this campsite, it was really quiet, the community building was great and Tom was a great host. I would definitely come back for an even longer stay.

Hipcamp Review for the Tree Hut by Chelsea in June 2023: This hut far exceed my expectations! It was very comfortable, spacious and perfect for a night’s stay! I’d absolutely come back here for a longer stay the next time I’m in the area. A couple towels were provided which was warmly welcomed. There was a space heater in the hut (which I did not need). The beds were very comfortable & warm! The community building has a full kitchen available to use & store your food in. The bathroom facility was very clean & easy to access from inside the common area or from outside. The hot shower was a bonus! There is no cell reception, however, there is WIFI in the community building that extended to the hut (for me at least). The host provided very detailed directions to get there which was very helpful! He was prompt with any questions that I had. 🙂 I highly recommend this accommodation/the camp grounds in general!

Google Review for a tent site by Lex Post in June 2023: A very nice campground in the middle of knowhere. We loved it. The place we had was perfect. The surrounding is perfect. The owner is very polite. The shower is very good and free to use. This is the perfect campground. A little hard to find but when you are there you don’t want to leave………..

Hipcamp Review for a tent site by Julie in June 2023: Arrived at the campsite and was greeted by host Tom. Very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Campsite clean and well organized. Has a definite hippy vibe, with communal building, housing fully equipped kitchen, seating area and bathroom. Large seating area outside, with multiple seating. Set in the woods but easily expressible to surrounding attractions. Tom made us very welcome and even enjoyed some guitar playing around the campfire on the last night. Well done Tom, you’re a star. Would definitely recommend.

Hipcamp Review for Tent Site 3 by Sarah W in May 2023:
Best Hipcamp Site EVER!
Clean, Bathrooms close by, quiet, had all kinds of unexpected extra features like hammocks, and a community center with a kitchen for all campers to make use of. One of the best campgrounds I have ever been to. Tom is incredibly hospitable. Also offers free Wi-Fi. I can’t say enough good things. I will be back.

Hipcamp Review for RV Site 2 by Patrick A in May 2023: Tom is an excellent host!
Tom is an excellent host full of local knowledge and things to do. The campsite is clean, showers and kitchen areas are very nice. Highly recommended.

Google Review by Radu in March 2023: Excellent camping place, no matter if you’re old school tent camping, RV, camper, or you want a little cabin. Highly recommended and be sure you reserve in advance.

Google Review by E.G. November 2022: If you’re looking for absolute quiet, this is it! We booked 3 nights over labour day long week-end. We were new to the area and the host Tom was Awesome; welcoming, accommodating, full of knowledge about the area and gave us advice and directions about the local trails, beaches and hikes. What a Friend!? The campsites are basically all around his beautiful A-frame house, nestled in the woods far away from road noise. (We did hear the music of a far distant neighbour one night, but the echo made it amazing). Despite the fact we had our own stove, we ended up cooking in the community building which was warm, well equipped, and with the strongest wifi signal. There are also 2 bathrooms with hot showers at the back of the building, and an outdoor sink. We recommend wholeheartedly

Google Review by Kass M. Oct 2022:Amazing campground for tenters or with a trailer. The owner is friendly and very helpful. Whether you are looking for a nearby hike, swimming hole, or anything in between, Tom has you covered. The community building is a haven for any camper. Nice kitchen and showers! No cell service but there is wifi that covers the entire property! Beautiful place to spend some time if you are in the area.

Google Review by Kate Frank August 2022 Camped here for six nights and it was a fantastic experience! Tent spot #5 was large, private and came with a hammock and sun shelter. The community building offers clean bathrooms, a kitchen, lots of space to sit, eat and mingle. Booking is conveniently done online. Highly recommend this campground!

“Staying Tom’s was superb! So many great amenities and lots of things to do in the area. We loved Tom’s sparkling personality and hospitable. He gave us a quick orientation of the ground and gave us lots of suggestions of things we can do in the area. He checked in on us when we got there and just before we left. Highly recommend this spot!”

Hut with Bunk Beds
We loved our stay at Valhalla pines! So glad we visited! Our little hut was a perfect summer getaway for our little family. The property is awesome for children too, our little one explored barefoot the whole time. Tom is so nice and super helpful. Good vibes! Next time I hope I will get an opportunity to play some music with Tom, that’s one thing I feel I missed out on. We will come back for sure!

For anyone looking at visiting Valhalla Pines let me assure you that the cabins, surroundings and amenities (hot shower!) are a joy to behold. You will enjoy the tranquility that comes from a well spaced campground in which your site feels like your home. Tom could not have been a more charming and thoughtful host. Don’t miss out on this truly unique airbnb experience.

We stayed at Tom’s campground for 5 days. It was great! Great camping experience in a nice area! Tom is a great host, very welcoming and caring. His dog Sophie is friendly and well mannered. You can tell that the property itself is a work in progress and Tom has many good ideas on how to enhance guests’ experience. I have to say it was never loud. Guests, host and surroundings were pretty quiet at all times. All in all, it was a great experience of a private camping with some extra facilities like Wi-Fi and hot shower. Location is good if you want to do hikes at Valhalla or check out towns and lakes/rivers around.

Sweet little campground with very nice shared amenities. Would love to come back and try the small cabins one day!
A peaceful, large property with tons of great tent spots. Tom was a very attentive, generous and thoughtful host. Great amenities included clean clean toilet, very convenient sink with hot water, shower, multiple fire pits, picnic tables, wall plugs in the communal area. I would recommend this place!

Tree Hut with Queen Bed
Island essence! Chest drops as you fade into serenity. The property is wide and open. Beautiful canopy helps shade the hot days. Had an amazing stay in the tree hut. Comfortable big bed with a wonderful view off the porch. The owner is incredible, very conscious, good hearted fellow. This is where you wanna be experiencing the Kootnay!

“Tom’s hut was wonderful. Everything you need for a weekend away or a quick little stopover in Slocan between destinations. Tom was a great host, welcomed us upon our late arrival and showed us around. The hut had electricity, a warm and comfy bed, shared toilet and even hot water! The location was tough to find, however once we got on the wifi we immediately got instructions and knew where to go-this also could’ve been because we were navigating at night. Wifi is strong and Tom seemed to always be around if we had any questions about our stay or activities to do in the area. We hope to stop on by soon!”

Tom’s home is part of the beautiful, magical Kootenay forest. Tall trees, deer, bald eagles, even wild turkeys all visited the property during my stay. The home itself is spacious yet cosy; offering privacy and also shared spaces. Tom was the perfect host; his instructions and communication were super speedy and clear. He respected each guest’s privacy, while also being super approachable and friendly. The best possible Airbnb experience, thank you!!!

Tom’s place is a great place to de-stress, unwind and disconnect. Tom is an enjoyable guy to visit with and has a beautiful plot of land well away from the city, but with great roads leading to his place. I had the upstairs balcony room and the view from the bed at night looking at the stars and in the morning as daylight slowly breaks was incredible. Sophie the dog was like a big bear cub, loves attention but very quiet and well behaved. 5 stars!

Die Unterkunft liegt toll versteckt im Wald. Hatte leider pech mit dem Wetter, aber die Wandermöglichkeiten sind ideal. An Regentagen lohnt eine Rundfahrt mit Besuch von Ainsworth hot Spots und Nelson sowie Kaslo.
The property is great hidden in the forest. Unfortunately had bad luck with the weather, but the hiking opportunities are ideal. On rainy days, a tour with visits to Ainsworth hot spots and Nelson and Kaslo is worthwhile.

Overall a very unique space. The hut is cool but extremely small. There is space for 2 people to sleep but if you want to hang out you will need to check out the community building. Outdoor shower worked well and water was hot. I would recommend more than 1 night stay as the 23$ cleaning fee and 12$ extra charge per person makes 1 night really pricey for what you get in amenities.
