Overall Rating:

We needed a place to stop as we were one day early for our reserved site in Vernon. We saw the sign for Tim's but could not see the park so we headed on it. Access from highway 97 is good. We were met at the entrance by the owner and were told to pick a spot and he would be by later on to collect payment etc. Check in was quick and pleasant. FYI we did notice a sign that said the park was "rustic". Interior roads were packed gravel. No ruts or pot holes to worry about. Foliage could have been cut back in some spots but there were no over hanging branches or serious obstructions. We expected to see a number of sites that were "by the river" but saw only one but it was taken. No surprise. There were a number of site options. There were pull throughs that could accommodate 45 footers but they were quite narrow. There were some odd shaped back ins. Some deep and some shallow. All spaces had good privacy. Most appeared fairly level. We chose 13. It was a wide, grassy, long enough for our coach and tow, back in spot. There were no close neighbors. That's pretty much the end of the "I'm okay with the rustic part". This park has potential but the operator either doesn't have the drive or the money to invest in making this a very very nice stop over. The Salmon River does run along side. The sites that exist beside the river need to be opened up and it looks like there might be ten or so. Brush needs to be cut back and a lot of garbage and scrap metal that has just been tossed into the bush needs to be removed. Add even just Power, Water and a Dump Station would make this a viable attraction. Right now the place is a dump. The owner's large cur dog wanders freely, there is a fire ban in place but we noted two camp fires burning. There is ONE outhouse and a make shift solar shower that is just ugly and dirty. No one bothers with rules. We paid $20.00 (cash only) and will never be back. We camped at Tim's By the River Campsite in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Vernon is about 30 K south and has all amenities. Falkland is about 15 K north and has very limited amenities. There is no store, restaurant or any type of facility within walking distance of this park. Walmart is a better option than this park.
