The park is located no more than 100 meters from Hwy #1. Constant roar of traffic present. The dreaded "cable box" is necessary to hook up to get your TV. Once hooked, TV selection is dismal. This close to Vancouver, surely a better selection of channels could be arranged. Could not get wi fi on Samsung tab, so had to set up the laptop. Sites are quite private, but power post is located at very front of site, making it awkward to hook up 30 amp cord. Very nice pool and hot tub. Reception lady quite pleasant. No access to any nature trails or paths to walk pets.

Park is in a state of renovation. Had it not been for that would have rated at 8. Laisez faire is best way to describe admin of this place. Tried for 3 days via email and phone to reserve, without success. Mgr on site from 3 -8 PM but very sporadic. Right in town so convenient to shopping. Very nice views of Kootenay Lake from sites. New hookups very convenient and campground should be a delight when alterations complete.

Surprised to learn this is first review as park been in operation for about 10 years. There is often confusion between this park and the one adjacent on same short road (Rojem). Both are small "mom & pop" operations in the heart of fruit orchards. This park was originally very nicely landscaped with bark mulch and shrubs surround each site. However landscaping has been allowed to deteriorate. Sites are large and hookups are well placed. The tap at our connection was leaking badly. I informed management and shortly thereafter I found a new tap at the site, waiting to be installed by me. I did not have the tools or inclination to do this repair and the tap was left to leak. Wi-Fi is present but quite spotty and temperamental. The park is located just a short drive from downtown Kelowna (5 kms), handy to groceries and supplies. Beware, the traffic in Kelowna is legendary for its intensity, so it is a relief to be away from that. Overall, our stay was a pleasant one and we will probably be back. There was some sign of attention to the landscaping while we were there, so hopefully they can bring the park back to its pristine setting.

Desert Gem? I think gem is a bit of a stretch. Located right in town of Oliver and countless wineries. Park is all cement and pavement with minimal shade. Good hookups, but fairly close quarters. We were parked near a group of several monster class A diesel pushers traveling together. Drinking and loud music would commence at noon or before and go into the later hours. We complained to management but nothing done. Social aspect tolerable, but having music ramped up to boom across the park not acceptable. Certainly tainted our visit here. Pet friendly with good access to outside park with doggy bags.

We looked forward to this park for some years and were not disappointed. It is a large park attached to a highly regarded winery and native heritage center, both of which are worth visiting. There are several configurations of sites and one would do well to have a drive around if possible before selecting. The premier lots are right on Osooyoos Lake, which would be very nice on a hot day. Beware of wind off lake though, as these sites are exposed directly to heavy blows. We picked the circle just above the lake which still affords a lake view, but are sheltered with wind breaks. Excellent three way hookup with 30/50 amp and cable. Wifi also. Park is within walking distance to downtown with a walking/bike trail. Watch the quail scurrying about your site in pairs. This would be a great "extended stay" park, with lots of lake-oriented things to do.

We have been coming here for years and it has been consistently a very well run RV park. Sites are very private, hookups great. Although we have used it as an overnight stop, it would be a great destination park for anyone visiting Chilliwack and area.

This was our second time here. Will preface comments with a warning to all dog owners. Beware of Rusty the feral border collie. This dog and its counterpart chase and kill coyotes around the ranch. For no apparent reason, Rusty attacked our 50 lb. standard schnauzer. He had him by the throat and there is no doubt in my mind his intent was to kill. I was able to separate the dogs, incurring several bites. If it had been a smaller dog, he would have died. It put a pall on the rest of our stay and we left a day early. This is a beautiful rustic setting for an rv park. There are currently about 6 sites, but plans are for more. Wonderful walking trails and the opportunity to view a working ranch. Dog control will have to improve.

The Lamplighter has been a consistent winner. In the center of the park is the beautiful home of the owners. Park was a nice mixture of large and medium sized rigs and tent campers. Hookups were excellent. Revelstoke is a charming town full of shops and things to see and do.

If you can get a site along Spring Creek, it is to your advantage. Others are only average. Creekside sites back onto Spring creek and offer a lovely view and the sound of water flowing. While fairly compact, the alloted areas are adquate and could be fairly tight for bigger units. Canmore has exploded in recent years and is on the way to becoming another Banff. Streets are crowded with tourists and shoppers.

This city park is one of the best around. It is well run, sites are well organized with great hookups. Although close adjacent to city park is quiet. On weekends there is always some feature to entertain campers. While there the local classic car club drove their beautiful vehicles through the camp.

Typical provincial park setting. Sites near lake and quite scenic. Water and electric only. Madge lake offers swimming, hiking and fishing. Regulation golf course nearby along with miniature golf.

Stayed in park during a Good Samboree. Park filled to capacity. In lite of no sewer connection, shower facilities taxed to the limit. Sites not clearly delineated and water taps situated a long distance from sites.

Arrived in 30 deg celcius. Asked for site with 30 amp to run A/C. Unfriendly attendant informed only 15 amp sites available so take it or leave it. Took site, very primitive with shady druggies next to us. Sweltered in heat till 10 PM. Walked sites to discover many full service unoccupied. Moved into full service and left early next morning. In addition, park is poorly maintained. Water source comes out of same pedestal as sewer. Never again.

This is a very large park appearing to have been built for the migrant oil worker population. Well with rough streets. Hookup pedestals were placed in a rather unusual location at the site, making it difficult to hook up. Water taps were ensconced in large insulated drums no doubt to make usable in the cold winter. The were also difficult to use.

This RV park is just west of Butte and has seen better days. Occupied by migrant workers. Quite barren of any landscaping. Hookups satisfactory and adequate for overnight. Would not spend a lot of time here.
