5 Parks near Kamloops, British Columbia

Our site was a gravel pull-in which meant we had to back out when leaving. It was hot and the best part of this site was a huge tree that provided shade. The site had a paver brick patio and a table. Spacing was pretty tight as our awning was within inches of our neighbour's slideouts. All utilities worked fine. Cable TV had around 70 channels and they were clear. Wi-Fi was hopeless as it was hard to even get access. Gates close at night, but one gate could be opened by using a supplied code. As choice is limited in this city, we would probably use this park again if in the area. - Onemoretrail

Free solid WiFi, free cable (not so good). Gravel pull thrus and backins, a little bit of grass. Good utilities and very helpfull friendly staff. Downside: lots of noise off the highway and the trains.... This park is definitely overpriced but good for a night or two. Be sure to visit the Wildlife Park - within walking distance, all rescued animals. - Traveller Excel

Ditto on everything posted by other reviewers; however, trains are even worse than described. Not only can you hear them all night long, but you can feel them as well. Camped near the office. WiFi worked very well. Laundry was clean with two washers and two dryers. This campground is OK for an overnight, but next time we will look for another campground with less noise. - Tetrode

As others have mentioned, this park is in a ravine. Sites are reasonably level with small grass area and gravel parking spot. "Clear mountain stream" is small creek. It was dry by the time we left (3 days).
Washrooms were okay, staff was great. Site was too close to neighbours - no privacy.
Appear to be a lot of long-term campers - one Class A had a plywood skirt!
If I was to visit Kamloops again, I would go elsewhere. Good only for overnight stop. - DCM/JMB

Park is located in a ravine. Entry road is down a hill and is only slightly wider than one way. Two rigs coming and going could not pass each other. Site was tight, could not put all slides out. WiFi reception good but occasionally drops off. Lots of shade and quiet. Interior roads well maintained but narrow. Appears to have lots off full or long time residents. O.K. for short stay but when through this area again will look elsewhere. - Shikepoke

Very close together. Sites were small and dingy. Bathrooms were decent. Very basic. Good for a one night stay only. - Jaclyn

This is one of the most beautiful campgrounds I’ve ever encountered, if not *the* most beautiful. All sites are large, well separated from their neighbors with plenty of foliage between them. Some sites are meant for two families camping together. These sites share a common driveway and are intentionally close to each other. Lac Le Juene is a beautiful lake, with a pier for fishing, and a swimming area. There is a boat launch and we saw canoes on the shore. We did not see any water-ski type power boats on the lake, but it was 7PM on a Thursday night, so they may have off the water, or perhaps are not allowed. We did see small aluminum fishing boats with small outboards. There is a 7 mile hiking/biking trail around the lake. The toilets scattered around the campground look like single-hole pit toilets from the outside, but each actually contains a single flush toilet. There was no sink … except for a large bath facility associated with the beach parking lot, which I imagine could be used by nearby camp sites. This is a dry campground, but does have water spigots scattered throughout it. There is a nice looking dump station near the entrance. We were here in late July, and the outside temperature was in the mid-50’s, which is pretty chilly to be doing water activities. According to other campers, it’s normally in the 80’s or 90’s at this time - Bitbucket

It has been five years since we last stayed here---we stopped because the pine beetle infestation forced the park to essentially clear cut the campground. It is still not as uniformly wooded as it was, but the efforts to restore the forest are starting to show. If you arrive early there are sites that are more wooded/shaded than others, but they are the first to go after the sites closest to the lake shore. But this park has many nice features despite the change in forestation. The lake is nice for fishing and paddling and there is easy access from a number of points along the shore. The shore on the lake in the park has a large grassy area that is gorgeous and the grass looks like a top-notch golf green. Its quiet here except for some very distant highway noise. We are happy to return this campground to our list of favorites and it will continue to improve as the trees grow back. - Big White

Beautiful campground. Large well spaced sites--all back in. Big rigs would have absolutely no problem especially on the perimeter loop of the campground. Inner roads a little narrower. Campground is built on hillside so lovely views of lake from upper sites. Huge grassy park-like beach area and boat launch. Only downside--wish there were more hiking trails. - Babas

We arrived late and found no space, but the wardens were really friendly and helpful and directed us to the overflow campground. The overflow campground was right next to the lake and had public toilets. The site was level and quiet. There were some good hiking trails directly from the campground. I'd recommend climbing to the top of Gibraltar rock! - lizzien

This is a very nice park with lots to do but, as with all Provincial parks We have visited lately - found the primary purpose of the park is to generate cash for the contractor - there is no longer any up keep of any of the facilities, rules are not enforced and it has taken a toll on the park and it's atmosphere. We hadn't even leveled our rig before getting asked for cash. The 20K speed limit is ignored by all, including the park staff as they were busily selling fire wood even though there were lots of kids running around. Such a shame. - chaperon

If you like to dry camp this is a great place to enjoy a few days. The park is about 15 miles north of Kamloops located on a very nice lake. There is plenty to do here so just enjoy. If you have a big rig, plan on using one of the back-in sites on the outer loop for easy access. The inside sites are a little tight but some are still okay for a bigger rig. - Paul M. Kitchen

RV spots are too close together, backing in is tight. It's a very busy RV park so the washrooms are often dirty because they can't keep up. A bit pricy for the type of facility but worth it for the location. Downtown is 5 minutes away and the park is right on the river with rough beach areas. Nest nearest RV park is way out of town to the east. - Qayqayt

We stayed 3 nights in late June. We booked 3 nights, but they only had us down for 2 nights so we had to move to an adjacent site for the last day. The old guy working in the office needs to retire as he was grumpy as heck and wasn't helpful in accommodating our third night.
The campground has potential, but isn't maintained well. The grass isn't watered and the landscaping is unkept. The roadways are dusty.
Unfortunately there are not many campground choices in Kamloops so there is no competition to drive cleaning up the campground. - Camper_Guy

We were charged $5 for each child per night, so we had to pay $50 dollar per night for a family of five:my three sons, my husband and I. I found this really outrageous. They did not accept credit card and do not let you know that upfront. This campground has been the worst campground that I and my family have ever been. The space for the RV/trailers is very small. There is almost no room between sites. The people that run this private campsite accept tent campers that is more than the campsite can handle. They put a lot of RV/tents in the overflow,; therefore, the washrooms in the morning are completely dirty and without toilet paper and soap because they only clean the washrooms in the afternoon. In summary, this has been the worst campsite we have the displeasure to stay. The people that run this campground do not care if you feel unhappy about the bad service/attention they’re giving to the campers. They only care about money. - Miljack
