Oxbow RV Resort, Penticton, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is a relatively small park. It is immaculate. The owners run a tight ship and it shows. There is grass between sites and a duck pond at the back. We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a bike trail close by that goes from this site right into downtown Penticton. There is public park and beaches just across from the campground. I have read other comments about the owners being hard to deal with and all I will say is that I have never had trouble with them. They like to run their park in a orderly way. Respect the basic rules and this is a very lovely and handy place to stay.

Pierre's Point Campground, Salmon Arm, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Just an overnight stay while travelling. It is ok for that and the lake is beautiful but it could really use a good face lift. I see some one else suggested that new owners are working on it but they would do well to work hard on it during the off season. In a pinch I would stay again but only in the shoulder season. We camped at Pierre's Point Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For the time being, I would only consider this a stopping point. It is probably quite busy during summer holidays due to the beautiful and handy lake but the campground needs work. Tables were old, we found that some of the pull through sites weren't as level as they could be/should be and it also appear that several beach front sites had been badly eroded by some previously high lake levels.

Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground, Okotoks, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

An older but still very nice campground about 15 mins away from Greater Calgary. Stayed for 2 nights while visiting in the area. Staff was friendly, efficient. I can easily recommend it if you want to be handy to Calgary. Spaces are good, there is a nearby children's playground. I had only one complaint and it had more to do with the City of Okotoks. For some inane reason, their city works dept. decided to fill all the pot holes in the adjacent parking lot at 8:00 a.m. Nothing like being serenaded by a grader scrapping and beeping. The campground is due to close Oct. 1st for the winter. They could have waited till then. We camped at Okotoks Lions Sheep River Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you don't have a toad and you want to get to Calgary, your best bet is to rent a vehicle. Don't wait to the last minute however. I talked to 3 rental agencies in Okotoks looking for a day rental on the day and there wasn't a car to be had. Cab will run $70 or more and public transit is largely non existent as far as I could tell.

Canyon Hot Springs Resort, Revelstoke, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Visited this park for the Hot Springs which consist of an outdoor hot pool and an outdoor "normal temp" pool.

There are cabins, tent only and RV hook up sites. Hookups are 30 amp, are on flat gravelled pads but have no sewer connection. You have to go to the sani dump for that. The natural setting is nice with mountains surrounding. There are trains but there is no escaping that. I didn't find them bothersome but some might. It is a good place to spend a night or maybe two. They give discounts for AAA but your camp fee doesn't give you any perks for pool admission. About $10.00 US per adult. We camped at Canyon Hot Springs Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

They have a small store for souvenirs, some essentials and they have a small snack bar/cafeteria. It is a great place to drop anchor for a day or two especially if you want to soak some of the aches and tensions of the road away. Consider upgrading your pool admission to a day pass for and extra couple of bucks. It will allow you multiple entries into the pools for 1 price.
