This is an older park, so it's kind of tight, but there is space between sites with grass and trees, although driving through in a larger RV is difficult. The owners are friendly and helpful. Everything is neat and tidy. Our site was gravel and level. Cable and wifi worked. I was dubious about this park -- it's curiously not listed in Woodall's or the BC government camping guide, but we'd definitely come here again and highly recommend it. Rate reflects extra adult and child.

This park is in a wonderful location, just outside Vernon, right on the lake. But it's older, quite small, and funky. The spaces are very tight, too close together, not well looked after, and ours wasn't close to level. The washrooms & showers were old and minimally clean. Wifi was iffy. No cable. The new owners are friendly, pleasant, and seem energetic -- hopefully they'll get the place standing tall soon. They have some watercraft available for guest use for free and rent paddleboards. All sites had fire rings, which, when the sites only have inches between them, can present problems for people who can't tolerate smoke. The location is excellent, the park (right now) is not.

We found this a unique park, having the rustic look of a provincial park, but with complete hookups! Only downside is there are no restrooms or showers or other facilities, nor extra facilities like a lounge area or laundry, at least not on the lower level where we were. They've built a beautiful swimming hole with sandy beach and lots of trails through the trees and many alcoves with chairs, lounges and benches for quiet contemplation. Kuskanox Creek runs along one side and Arrow Lake is right there as well. Beautiful spot. Our rate reflects one extra adult and one child.

I agree with the last two reviews. The best thing about this park is its location, close to the city center, and within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, etc. It is poorly run administratively. The office is open from 3pm to 9pm--sometimes. It's a small park so you need to have a reservation. If you can get in touch with them, confirm it at least twice. Staff seems to change daily, some are helpful, some aren't. The spaces are not level. The grounds are clean and tidy but the restrooms were not. It can take a 35-foot motorhome, but I wouldn't want to bring anything bigger in here. It seems better suited to smaller RVs, camper-vans, and tents. We probably won't stay here again.

As previous reviewer said, this campground was spared major forest fire damage last year, although the reminders are all around. It's a beautiful spot on the Kettle River, and the staff we met were all pleasant and helpful. There is one large restroom with dishwashing area, flush toilets and showers, as well as several pit toilets, a kids' play area and the Trans Canada Trail runs right beside it. The restrooms are clean, although we had different experiences with hot water, convenience, etc. Our big complaint is that we made a reservation and were severely overcharged -- as well as the overnight fee, they charged us for our RV and for our toad, for an additional $12 per night. The only way to get a refund is through the onsite ranger (which we were able to do, but we would have been out of luck if we'd waited till we got home). Also, they charge you a $6 reservation fee PER NIGHT (maximum $18), which we haven't encountered anywhere else. And they charge for dumping even when you're paying overnight fees. If you make a reservation, look carefully at what you're paying for before you give them your credit card info. I think we'll try a commercial site next time where you get more bang for your buck and can still enjoy the great outdoors. (Rate is in Canadian dollars.)

This is a small park, with easy access from Hwy 3, (highway noise is not a problem). Positives: the washrooms and $howers are spotless; all sites have fire rings and free firewood; the golf course is right there; the wifi works. Negatives: the sites are very close together; not much grass around (except on the golf course); there's nothing for kids. There are beautiful pine trees around the campground, but they may or may not provide shade, depending on which site you are in. We'll come back. The rate is Cdn dollars.

The biggest plus about this park is its location: close to Monterey Aquarium, lots of beaches, and great birding. On the advice of a local we took a day trip north to Capitola, which was a neat thing to do. The park itself is very small with only one road in and out so when a caravan of 17 or so rigs came through, it tied up access. Very inconvenient. They kind of overdo the regulations as well -- with signs in the restroom telling you where to hang up your towel and things like that. But the restrooms were very clean.

We usually stay someplace else in Bakersfield, but thought we'd try this one when we were delayed by weather. It was recommended by friends as their go-to stop, but we were a little underwhelmed for the price. The restaurant is a really nice amenity and the restrooms are impeccably clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Wifi is okay. Play area for kids is tiny, but our 4-year old loved digging in the sand. Site required some levelling, but was okay. It's a decent park, but a little overpriced.

This is an okay park for an overnighter. Sites are paved and terraced, reasonably level, but no room between for even a chair. Staff is friendly. Our site was a tight fit with our toad, but we managed, and there is overflow parking. Many full-timers, but not an issue. Restrooms were good, clean with hot water and good pressure. There is a pool and hot tub, but pool isn't heated. Wifi was okay. Good access from CA 14.

We've stayed here a few times and keep coming back. Best value is for longer-stays of a month or more. The "official" rental agency (through ORPS) prefers to rent by the month; private renters may have different policies. You can rent for less time, but they won't reserve for that until the first of the month that you want to rent in. It's a bit cumbersome, but understandable. Seems like there are almost always rentals available, though, so you could just drive up to the door and would have a reasonable chance of getting a spot for short-term. The facilities are really great, as noted in other reviews, and owner-residents seem to be making a big effort to be friendly and inclusive (unlike in the past). It's a beautiful resort. We'd come back for sure.

Last time we stayed here, it was for a few days, and we felt it was worth it. This time, a couple of years later, it was just an overnight stop, and we felt it wasn't worth it. The traffic getting to the park, even at 1:30 in the afternoon, was horrendous -- bumper to bumper with inadequate signage on I-80 (Bus) from the west. A nightmare. The lady at the desk was not helpful in explaining our options. The paved lot, closer to showers etc., is ridiculously sloped. The gravel lot was better, but our site still had quite a slope to it and it took us some time to get level. The wifi worked fine and it is close to the river and shopping. The showers are basic, could use some tuning up, but the water is hot and the pressure is good. We won't stay here again for a one-nighter, we'll keep on going to some place where access is better.

This is a a resort and the price reflects that. Park is gated and secure, clean, pond is nice, pool and spa look inviting although we didn't use them. The sites are owned individually -- they rent out sites when owners aren't using them. Last time we were here, you got golf included in the cost or you got a discount. This rate ($50) seems high for a full discount. We didn't golf, but golfers were abundant. This was a good overnight stop for us and we'd probably come back again, as long as they don't keep raising the prices.

This is a hard park to rate because it is in the process of being rebuilt. Makes sense that the owners don't want to invest in infrastructure that is going to be replaced. The location is outstanding--right on Clear Lake, close to a kids park, boat launching, restaurants. The park itself is clean and tidy, but divided by the main road, so one part fronts the lake and the other is across the road. The lakeside sites are quite small, but since we were there in low season, we were able to fit our 35' motorhome in without obstructing anyone and the view was fabulous. In high season that wouldn't be possible. The manager is very enthusiastic, friendly and helpful, so that is a big plus. The washrooms were clean, but badly need improvement (see above). The showers were probably clean, but not inviting. The wifi was pretty good, but waffled a bit. There was a games room, which we didn't use, but seemed like an asset. And there was a laundry, which we did use and was fine. We planned to stay one night, but stayed two and would definitely come back. It will be interesting to see how they rebuild.

This used to be a really great deal because it was about half the price. It's still a good RV park -- relatively new facilities, good laundromat, restrooms and showers, shuttle to the casino for restaurants, the pool, and if you're into gambling, the casino. The staff are really accommodating and go out of their way -- you can even get the shuttle to take you off-site. The restaurants have good deals, but we were disappointed by the food. (We were there for a $7.99 buffet that really wasn't worth it. And the $4.99 breakfast deal wasn't all that good either.) If you're not into gambling and are there for other reasons (beaches, birding, history) this may not be the best place. I give it a high rating because it's reliably clean, friendly, and has good amenities, but we will probably try some place else next time.

A nice park, easy access off the freeway, walking distance to river, but not on it. Wifi and cable worked fine. There was a pool (unheated) and a spa (heated) which we didn't use, but looked clean. Our four-year-old was entertained by the basic playground area. The store had lots of stuff in it. The washrooms were basic, but seemed due for a paint job, but clean enough. Didn't use the showers.The park grounds were clean and cared for, seemed like lots of long-termers, but lots of space for short-termers. The man in the office was very helpful. We barely fit in our pull-through site -- 35' plus toad. We'd come back again and stay longer to explore the area a bit.
