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

There are no amenities but the park is right on the main street and can handle big rigs. The owner keeps the place very clean. The park is two blocks from the lake. Not much to see or do in this town but it is close to Penticton. - Carly

This is just a vacant parking lot! Sites are non existent - just empty parking spaces with hookups added. YUK. - B&M

The park is extremely clean. Gravel sites with a small patch of lawn on each site. Wide enough for four slides. Very friendly owner. Walking distance to shopping and the downtown area. Two blocks to the lake. The park does not have any recreation but the town itself does. - Carly

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

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. - flugelboneman

Arrived to find our reserved spot overtaken by neighboring rig and were asked to wait until owners returned. Refused and were offered a tight spot with a slope but not any of other unoccupied sites. Little choice so we squeezed in, then the water hook-up didn't work and we had to be connected to water in site behind us. Received a reduced rate for our troubles, but not very happy with service. (Several better sites were still unoccupied the next day.) - User3196

Clean laundry and clean park. Sites are very, very narrow with little space between you and neighbor. Tow vehicles will not fit in the spaces and must be parked cross wise at an angle. Management ignored our request to be given a site next to friends despite making the request months in advance and having sites available during our stay. - BandPS

This former KOA is located on a small but lovely spring fed lake. Reservations were easy and park staff friendly. We stayed at the tail end of the season and were practically the only folks in the lower campground. The lower campground does not accept pets and has a few rental cabins along with the usual sites. Sites are close together and parking can be a challenge if you have a longer rig. We had a lovely stay but if the campground were full we would have been on top of our neighbors. There is little privacy here. The resort abuts a trailer park with well kept mobile homes and signage is somewhat confusing. Be careful not to get into the mobile home park as there is no turn around. No campfires are permitted in sites. WiFi was excellent! - Janet H

Obviously an improved KOA but very well kept and clean. One of few parks with 50 amp sites available in the Okanagan. Beautiful trees throughout the park prevented us from getting a satellite signal but worth it. Good base to be at while you explore the sites in the south Okanagan valley. Did I say wineries? - DaveyB

Some of the nice things about Gallagher is the location. They have a small clean with clean sandy lake ideal for kids. Very close to most Winery's which we liked and lots of biking close by. The lots are close together but compared to other campgrounds in the area they are roomy. Seems like every year we go there they have different people there running it and it seems hard to get your existing site for the next year. - curtsathome

Great location, well laid out, nice, easy to get at hook-ups, could be very noisy in the summer with its closeness to the highway. A little tight for big rigs but do-able. Lots of rules and strictly enforced. Don't even think about stretching them even by mistake. I can understand when the park is full keeping things in check but when only 5 or 6 sites are occupied... It is their business and they can run it the way they like but due to the attitude of the owners I cannot recommend this RV park. - Retired Papa

Pull through site. Lots of road noise. Clean and tidy. Owner was fine. Sites close together. WiFi decent. $1 an hour. Basic cable. - K Willie

It is a shame that such a beautiful place can be owned by such an arrogant jerk. On the third day of our stay we accidentally popped the breaker. When we went to the office to inform them and request reset we were treated like criminals. The owners treated us so badly we suggested that perhaps we would best to leave. They just grew angrier and told us we had paid for a week and would not get a refund. We stayed our week while avoiding them and left vowing to never return. In all our years of travel we have never been so badly treated.
The site itself is well laid out with new good quality utilities. The site are nicely shaded and nicely kept. There is a great beach within close proximity. - Jim and Ardele Smith

We stayed in a double site that was so spacious. The grass and trees were wonderful and our kids loved playing here. We were bummed that there weren't any bathrooms on our loop. We had to drive down to the lake access to use the shower, but it was clean and spacious so we didn't mind. The access to Okanagan Lake was great. - Ahleeb

This is a provincial park. The showers were clean but the water was cold, so most unpleasant. The building is new since the last time we were here years ago. Had hot showers the last time. Lot spacing was very close with some shade. Site surface was dirt and features a fire ring and picnic table. - Rib

Three is a north loop and south loop. The south loop is older and more packed together but also more popular and flat.
The North loop is right off 97 and terraces a few hundred feet to the lake. Sites are more spaced out in rows terraced along the hillside. The lower and closer to the lake is more popular and packed on weekends.
We stayed on the top row which is a bit noisy, but has the deepest sites. Though walking the park we found many sites that with a bit of movement we could wiggle into. There is a beach area, with a bike/walking trail along the lake that connects to the South campground. In between the camps is a dog beach.
Service wise - not much. We learned if you want the staff to stop by or sell you wood you have to lean something on your numbered post. But even then they were rarely by. - sheltieRV

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

Nice little place to stay with friendly seasonals to chat with. Owner was very helpful and accommodating to get our 40 footer into a spot. Pool was great and there's a hog shack there with the best pulled pork I've ever tasted. Definitely coming back here again. - Marc B

Not certain how Woodall's has this as a 4 star as it is clearly only a 3 star. Small RV park behind a motel. Some longer term residents, but very quiet campground. Nothing fancy, but then from what I have seen in BC that is true of a lot of them. On the plus side it has cable TV plus the best Wi-Fi I have experienced in 3 weeks on the road this trip. The park has about 7 or 8 pull throughs which are wide and they have trimmed the trees severely to help out with access. Biggest challenge is the turn getting onto the road leading up to the sites. It is tight so will need to pay attention. Would stay here again if in the area. - AZJC

Nice small rv site in back of a motel. Quiet and clean. Many snowbirds during our stay. Very nice and helpful owners. Pet friendly, they even have a dog run where they can go unleashed. Probably very busy during the summer season. I would definitely stay again. - thomasgunnar

Should have read the previous reviews before booking. Booked 2 months ahead and I was told what my site was as I asked for a private shady site. When I got there the manager was unfriendly and they had changed our site on us. The site they gave us was not shady nor private, it was across from the bathrooms. Manager said he would attempt to help move to the site on my email, but when we went back to talk to him, he would not consider changing back to the site indicated on my email. We stayed for over a week and the site we were suppose to get was empty most of the time. Highway noise was loud and the kids playground was dirty and not much fun for the kids. Pool was nice but rules were never enforced. Bathrooms were locked with a code for the night, why locked up I don't know. Sites were close and tight. Lot of the cedars that provided privacy were cut down. Manager of the place never said Hi or smiled. Overall experience was bad and I would never go back. Place is for sale so maybe they don't care. - Jordon

This campground was very small. It's in a cul de sac. It's like they turned their backyard into a very small campground (gravel pit). The sites were very small, and all of the other campers had to move their vehicles in order for trailers to get in or out. Way overpriced! Would not advise anyone to go there with a trailer or motorhome. Great for tenting or very small motorhome. - karrie

Very small place, not recommended for Motorhomes. Expensive for what they offer. No grass, just dirt. Shade/big trees. Wi-Fi offered but did not work at all. Laundry/Washrooms: need improvement, dryer did not work properly. Pool OK. Playground boring. Website promises/shows more then what is actually there (32' Motorhome cannot be maneuvered/parked) - udinese
