We had a large work function for the weekend. The owners were very accommodating and extremely friendly. Everyone enjoyed themselves from all ages groups, kids to adults. For the large group we had, it was nice to be able to camp all together instead of in individual sites (although the option is available here). Clean, and well managed. Bonus is having flushing toilets while still being able to "rough it". The grounds were great with green grass and the river close by. Would highly recommend, will be back for sure but with more people next time. - ScottandNev

This is a new campground with small trees just planted. Approx 100 meters down a gravel road to large grassy sites along the Similkameen river. Far enough away from the highway to be quiet. Fire pits and tables at most sites. Self registration. Very friendly owners came around to help us with our questions. We will be back again with my fishing rod. - hawk-dive

New owners Shirley and Cameron have been fulltimers for many years and know what people want in a park, and are working very hard to provide good services. The park is very clean, tidy and well maintained, we saw Cameron out working at 7am every day. Internet at our site was excellent. Cable TV was not up and running yet, but will be soon.
This is an older park so the sites are a little tight for our big rig (40 ft with 3 slides) but they have a few pull thrus which can accommodate us.
We stayed here over Easter weekend and will return. - Rapata

One of the cleanest and best maintained parks we have been in. Friendly staff on hand all day, will even park your rig for you. Lovely beach area next to crystal clear river, plenty of shade, excellent WiFi. Peaceful and relaxing location. We will certainly stay here again. - Codliveroil

Rate shown is for Seniors Off Season. Good signage on highway to park. Self registration when park operator not around, but someone will attend later in the evening. Park road fairly narrow asphalt surface, but one way direction. Some trees close to road, but they are trimmed. All the sites are back-in, except for one pull-thru (#27). Most sites are for small RV units less than 25 ft long. Sites 12, 16, 17, and 19 can handle rigs up to 40 ft (you would still have to unhook your toad at the entrance). Our site (#14) was just big enough for our 28 ft motorhome. Scattered pines throughout the campground between the sites gave some privacy. No power, water, or sewer hookups. Vault toilets and a hand water pump. Sites on two levels, upper close to highway with the inevitable traffic noise and lower above the river (that noise I can handle). Access to the river via fairly steep and short pathways. Well maintained campground. No local TV or radio, only satellite radio. Too many trees on most sites for satellite TV. Good place just to relax and take in the scenery. We would definitely stay here again. - Onemoretrail

Great place to stay for a one or two night stop over. There is a water pump in the park, but it could have a boil water advisory. Wonderful views of Stemwinder Mountain and the Similkameen River. A little close to the highway, but not too much noise from it. - Snoet

I cannot possibly say enough fantastic things about this campground and the owners.
All sites are 30 amp electrical. Some have sewer. If not, free sani dump right in the park! Some river view sites. Pet friendly - must be on a leash though and you must pick up after your dog - it's a respectful rule!
For kids - giant chess board, horseshoes, playground, safe campground, river for fishing, swimming, gold panning. Hike trails around the campground. Lots to do in Hedley, BC - tour Mascot Mines, museum, market or float the river!
Campsite - Approx 24 campsites, 4 rustic cabins to rent (with beautiful decks and views of the river)and also a newer RV for rent! Shower house. $1 for a 5 minute shower. Flush toilets, store with ice, candy and a few things you may have forgot.
Cell service, town in 5 minutes away and sells liquor and anything else you need.
Summer kitchen for family gatherings and potluck dinners. Laundrymat on site. Fresh coffee on every morning for campers! Wood is per wheelbarrow and SO CHEAP compared to a tiny 4 piece plastic wrapped bundle you get from provincial parks.
Now... about the owners. Amazing people. The nicest camp hosts you will ever meet. They check on all of their guests to make sure they have what they need and are having a good time. They host 4 theme weekends a year where they do NOT raise the prices of the campsites but instead provide games, prizes, food and other perks to all campers. IE: Western Theme, Mardis Gras, Mexican Fiesta, Christmas in July, Wine and Pasta Competition. These are most definitely the best weekends to book to maximize your fun!
I would highly recommend this campground for family reunions and weddings, large birthday gatherings or just get togethers.
This is 1 hour from Penticton/Osoyoos. 3.5 hours from Vancouver. It's the perfect distance to get-away for a weekend.
This campground is beautifully manicured with big trees to shade you and spots to bask in the sun. It is SUPER clean. - Smoresinsmalltowns

We loved our 2-night stopover here. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The park was quiet and clean. We would definitely stop here again if travelling through that area. - User3203

This park has new owners who have little experience dealing with the public. As a result, many strange happenings during our three night visit including evictions of one neighbour (at 10:30 PM) because he let his little dog follow him to the shower house and another neighbour who let their two dogs following them down to the river. In each case the dogs were not making a noise or mess. The owner is very concerned about his grass and with the sites being extremely small and crowded together it is impossible to park your RV without traveling on the grass. That's when you get a scolding and later the owner tells your neigbours that you are a problem tenant. The park advertises full hookups but you are not told there is no sewer in the river side sites. Later, when you go to dump your tanks you are scolded for using too much sewer capacity and too much water. This is on top of a dump that that is on a side hill and slopes away from the drain. Overall, the tension and stress here is too much. We will not stay at this park again. - Living Skies

We had a 15 amp power and water site so we could not operate our air conditioner even with an afternoon temperature of 38C. The park was quiet, clean, and friendly on this long weekend in August. The host did a great job of keeping everything organized even though the park was full. Our site was grass and long enough to park trailer and truck but was a bit narrow with our neighbour's slide and our awning meeting. Each of the pull-through sites have 30 amp power. We would stay here again. - Living Skies

This is a basic park, great if you're a golfer; sites are gravel and fairly level. Very quiet and beautiful location; best if you want to get away from it all and just golf. Negative for me was the communal campfire site right in front of our spot. Friendly managers; local deer family wandered through daily. We'd definitely come back again for a "play & stay". - mlbw

Agree with previous reviewer. I would have rated it higher if roads/sites were paved, sites were longer and wider, WiFi was better, and cable TV was in working order. Office staff was pleasant and helpful. We would stay here again if in the area. - cjca

Dusty roads and our site was just fine sand so it was very messy - especially when wet. Trees were pruned so larger motorhomes had no problems with limbs. Laundry was filthy. Checked it on Sunday afternoon - hoped it was bad because of big weekend crowd. Tuesday when I did laundry I cleaned 2 washers and dryers with fantastic - caked on dirt and grime. One dryer did not dry but did get hot - no lint in lint trap so I knew the fan wasn't working. I went into office to tell them they might want to check this dryer - Manager was rude and hateful - did not offer to return money and just said " You have to run them through more than one time, Mam". Bath facilities were just as dirty. - jandjmichael

Location good but noisy. Everything else was mediocre or bad, including the owner or caretaker being quite harsh in his communication style regarding parking, use of site, park, pets, etc. I would not go back based on that as when we go away in our motorhome we want to relax and enjoy, not be dealt with in a difficult manner. - Nickynewrv

Very expensive for what you get $76 per night 2 adults with dog, dusty and noisy. Management was very unfriendly and inconsiderate . Sites are small and you feel congested, the pool is located next to the busy highway. Their are plenty other great camp grounds in this lovely area for less. - CGfine

The pictures on their website are not reflective of most of the sites at the campground. The only sites with grass are the tent sites, the rest is dirt. There wasn't enough room for both the slide and the awning, and the trees provided no shade. You could hear everything your neighbor was doing. We had to wait for all of our neighbors to get up to move their vehicles so that we could leave - the sites were so tight. They advertise free Wi-Fi - there was none. We will not be staying here again. - eeghost

The sites are very tight, if you have a pull out or an awning you have to choose which one you would like to use (if your site has enough room). The washrooms were clean; staff was friendly, pay showers and laundry. No pull through sites, mostly grassy sites (a little sparse in spots). Some road noise during the day but quiet at night. Small playground for kids and a small heated pool. Very scenic location. Fresh baking if pre-ordered the night before $. We paid $30 per night. The campsite charged our credit card for two nights six weeks before we arrived. We had reserved for three nights. Seems a little steep and definitely an overly early charge. Probably will not stay here again. - Retired Papa

Pay shower was cold, probably the worst shower I ever had to pay money for.(actually has a note to warn of this) Very tight, even with lots of reversing experience. Couldn't put out awning, had to place our lawn chairs around neighbors sewer connection - no room. No Camp Fires. Grass not kept up - dried up and tracks everywhere. Wasps were a big problem and the picnic tables sucked. The pool was great for the kids. We meant to stop in merely to re-charge and get cleaned up - but were very disappointed considering the price we were charged. - chaperon

close to town center and Okanagan lake...sites are relatively small but adequate....would recommend reservations. - Superlar

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. - mlbw
Aug 2014 - $55.00
Owner/manager very friendly and helpful. All was neat as a pin! Even took all kids for an evening wagon ride. Close to canal for tubing/kayaking. Close to biking/walking trail. Quarter mile walk to public beach. We would definitely stay here again when in Penticton. - LeslieF
Aug 2015 - $55.00
We have stayed many times at Banbury.
The good: the location - some spots are right on the lake, amenities are great - showers, washrooms, watercraft rentals, dog friendly, playground, close to town if you need anything.
The bad: We paid $55 a night last June for Father's Day weekend. We are locals. This is just too much money. Also - the management is rude. The customer service is poor. Nobody wanders around to check on things or see if people need anything or how their stay is. Once that office is closed, they are gone. - Smoresinsmalltowns

This was the most expensive Park we stayed at out of 8 during this trip. If towing, don't take the southern access via Ash Ave. It is a twisty one lane gravel road with a hair pin turn to the entrance. Take the northern access off the Hwy onto Pineview Drive. Approach this access from the north but if towing go past and use the turnaround and approach from the north. If it wasn't for the uneven sites, large tree roots, overgrown weeds, and tree branches, plus the sewer connections that are raised above ground level my rating would have been higher. Wi-Fi is only accessible right at the office. It is a beautiful setting right on Shaka Lake. Very dog friendly park with the Kettle Valley Rail Trail right at your doorstep. Watch out for the poison ivy. Beautiful night views of across the lake and quiet. Yes we would stay here again. - Al Rico

Full hook-ups right in front of Skaha Lake, how good is that? Wi-Fi is at the office only. Sites are natural grass and sand with some tree roots to make leveling a bit of a challenge. Good 30amp and good water. Long hill down from the highway with narrow road. Right turn off of the highway from the south is NOT recommended as the entrance is too narrow for even a car to make it without backing up. Turn left from North is safer but still a bit tricky because of traffic volume. Pet friendly. Right on the KVR for walking or cycling. Great lake for boating (boat launch at the end of the campground). This park can be VERY crowded in peak season but was quiet in mid-Sept. 10kms from Pentiction south on Hwy 97. - CanCat

This park is nice that you are right across the road from the beach. As is typical with many RV parks in this area, it is old and grey. Sites are a bit narrow and limited options if you are over 30'. It only has 30amp, cable TV with about 20 channels (mostly Canadian), and sewer is a bit tough to get connected to as it is surrounded by a 6" concrete barrier. This time of year (late May) the park has a lot of sap and thorns that are constantly getting tracked into the RV. - sheltieRV

We have stayed here before. This time we received a poor reception from the manager, long lecture and rules about the dog. You can't leave your dog in the RV and of course must poop scoop. Any infraction at all and you will be asked to leave the park. I was disappointed in the poor welcome when we were just arriving. I think people are sick of dogs and bad owners who won't clean up after them and leave them to bark. Our dog was quiet the entire time, but a drunk man in a van pulled in, passed out and left his radio on loud until I finally had to get the manager to reach in and turn off the engine as I wanted to get some sleep. There are droppings from trees that stick to your shoes and come into your rig. We will return but I frankly wish we had had a better reception. - saturn7

Only part of this campground was open this early in the season (June 7-9) so we were in a non-big rig site. That said, it was long and wide enough for our 4-slide, 40' RV; the tow car was parked across the front. The park appears to be well-maintained and clean; we don't use their restrooms or showers. We had a quiet stay except for traffic noises; no children in the park during this time. We had 30amp service, no WiFi, and Verizon cell coverage. - DiplomatTraveler
