It's all about expectation
This is a SMALL campground were you are secure, it's quiet, and the owners really care about you. There (if I recall) only 9 spots. 5 back in and 4 pull through. The campground are clean -your in the middle of a walnut and (peach I think) orchard. FYI because its SO small the owners are on site (at home) but not necessarily available. This is a side project it seems.There is a big board with your assigned site - there are ample instructions on expectations, There is (included) a cable-box / remote - again all with instructions. Would I go back .... absolutely .... little pricey. - Medic73

Month long stay. Metered power for winter users, but we just missed that, so free power. One of the few in town to allow pets. - darryl&rita

This RV campground was ideally located for our trip, however the office isn't manned when they said it would be which made check-out very difficult. We didn't see the campground hosts at all even when we were around for their supposed office hours. I never saw a pool so I can't comment on that. The gravel site wasn't terrible, but it wasn't level. On the website it describes a lovely lawn area with a picnic bench. It looked very lovely until we tried to use the bench and were attacked by red ants. The washrooms were serviceable, but there was no mop or way to ensure the floor wasn't slippery for the next person. At the end of our stay we felt it had been quite an expensive stay for a basic site. - lizzien

This park was one of a few, and the most expensive, of small parks located on farms in the Kelowna area. It was essentially a $30.00 a night park located in an inflated market. There was a two night charge cancellation policy, again reflective of a heated market. On arrival, there was a sign listing names and assigned sites, but nobody in the office. The first row of sites were dusty, narrow and short. Our site was up a small hill, paved and more spacious. Landscaping was basic and you were essentially parked at the edge of open fields. It was not an attractive area. However, despite being paved, our assigned site was so far off level (both back to front and side to side) that even with all our blocks our motor home could not be leveled on the stabilizers with the rear wheels sufficiently grounded (ie. unsafe). I was able to contact the owners on their cell and they did not have another site to offer me. We left and will never return. This place may be OK for some rigs, but do not expect it. If you do stay here, insist on a level site. Rigs that can be lowered in front may be OK in the site we had, but bring lots of blocks for the back - and wheel chocks. - BMonk

There were 4 showers for the campground, of which 2 of them also has bathroom facilities. As such there was almost always a line up in the morning.
The office was actually close to the exit of the park, which was a bit confusing when first arriving. (I don't recall if there were signs). The host couple was very friendly.
No circuit breakers on the electrical box. Grey water connection only at our site. - Htt_AB

Small, clean RV resort, grass for each camping spot, sites in the upper are are more spacious. The location is on edge of Kelowna with a 5 min drive to the city centre and very close for amenities. The fenced in playground area was excellent for kids. The owners where very friendly and helpful. Overall a nice place to stay. - JRL-Swift

Nice park. Has the basic amenities. Clean. We arrived in the mid day. Caretaker was helpful and nice. We settled into our site the weather was nice we which made the stay that much better. Kelowna is a must see and this bear creek is a nice government park to stay at. - JohnJM

Enjoyed our quick stay here. Large campground. Sites are spacious. A fair drive from most places which made it difficult to pack up the motor home every time we needed something from town. Will look for a place next time a little closer to amenities. - camperladie1959

Beautiful lake and grounds and great ATV day trips way above the mountain hill side. An extremely clean campground and crystal clear water. Gravel sites. Staff is very accommodating and friendly here at Bear Creek: No Bears though! Great place for even the fussiest campers. Restaurants and shopping in Westbank are 10 minutes away by car. You will like it alot. - Smore Fishin

We had site number 1 in this 9 site park. Beautiful location with stunning views across the valley. Good vegetation between sites to provide privacy. The site was plenty long and nicely level. The owner met us just after we arrived and we ordered fresh produce almost every day of our stay. Great place to stay, extremely peaceful, can't wait to come back! - Tech5709

Absolutely wonderful location with nice views. Only 9 secluded sites, which made it quaint. Loved the fresh vegetables. Very handy to town but you think you are well out in the country. Can't wait for our next visit here! - PaulMac

We have not used this park for several yrs and it seems to have list its pristine look. Still very handy to visit Kelowna and hook ups in good shape. Park had just opened when last we visited and perhaps the owners have lost their initial enthusiasm. Still in all, fine park to use. - flugelboneman

Surprised to learn this is first review as park been in operation for about 10 years. There is often confusion between this park and the one adjacent on same short road (Rojem). Both are small "mom & pop" operations in the heart of fruit orchards. This park was originally very nicely landscaped with bark mulch and shrubs surround each site. However landscaping has been allowed to deteriorate. Sites are large and hookups are well placed. The tap at our connection was leaking badly. I informed management and shortly thereafter I found a new tap at the site, waiting to be installed by me. I did not have the tools or inclination to do this repair and the tap was left to leak. Wi-Fi is present but quite spotty and temperamental. The park is located just a short drive from downtown Kelowna (5 kms), handy to groceries and supplies. Beware, the traffic in Kelowna is legendary for its intensity, so it is a relief to be away from that. Overall, our stay was a pleasant one and we will probably be back. There was some sign of attention to the landscaping while we were there, so hopefully they can bring the park back to its pristine setting. - flugelboneman

Stayed here 2 or 3 times in the last 14 months of work traveling. Super friendly hosts. Nice View, especially if you have a pull thru site. Power, water, sewer, everything easily accessible. Small privacy fence between sites. Super strong and fast wifi. One of our favorite spots. - Robert and Carol

Nice little camp for short stays about 5 km to downtown Kelowna. Friendly owners and clean grounds. Most sites are pull thru and you need to have a self-contained unit as their are no washrooms or showers. Laundry on site. Each site is divided, level with gravel. Stayed 4 nights. Great place to stay and take in the various sightseeing options in Kelowna. - gypsy parrotheads

Gravel pads, access slightly tight, no restrooms, but overall a fine place to stay. Nice views, good water, laundry available. Very accommodating owners. We would definitely return. - wandrr

What a lovely little find this jewel was. Only 8 or 9 sites, but neat as a pin and very well managed. Very hands on by the owner.
This is not a RESORT, this is an actual farm and we loved it. A little ways out of town but we would highly recommend this spot.
We stayed in a 45' motor home and it was a little snug but very do-able. - Tucsonbenz

What a nice surprise to find such a great facility so close to town, but not too close! At first glance we thought the place may be a bit far from things, ( shopping, groceries, etc. ), but it was not an issue at all...about 10-12 minutes to the nearest store, and about 15 to the shops in Kelowna. You will want to take your bike with you, as the Kettle Valley trail is just minutes up the road. The sites were level, well spaced, and well kept. The owner ( Leslie ) couldn't be more helpful, and has (delicious) fresh eggs for sale daily. The park is very quiet and peaceful at night.
We highly recommend making reservations early, even in the shoulder season...they fill up fast.
We would have rated this a 10, however, be aware that you will be charged full rate for the "overflow" sites, which only have a 15a extension cord to them, and have no water or sewer. Other than that we were very pleased with our stay, and will go back again. - EmmaS

Believe the other reviews and the ratings. This campground easily makes our top five list. This is a small campground (only 8 sites) but there is some room for overflow.
There is a small farm here also (flowers and veggies). Kids can go with owner and pickup freshly laid eggs in the morning. Then you can buy some.
Place is extremely clean, there are lots of sports equipment you can borrow to play with on-site.
Close to Kelowna and the Wine Route.
Kids loved to feed the chickens with the leftovers. This campground has a family feel to it.
Reserve well ahead of time. - Merveilleuse

This is an older campground, best suited to small trailers/rv's. That said, the owner is very accommodating and he found a place for us to park our 32 foot fifth wheel. The campground was very quiet, even though it is pretty full and the sites are close together. There are a lot of permanent campers and the owners tend to have a lot of "stuff" spread around their sites. The park could be improved if they were required to clean up their sites. - Bobbi1948

Spacious sites and very quiet. Rangers are strict about making sure food is placed in bear boxes. The bear boxes are large. Restrooms were clean and it was about a 15 drive into Lodgepole for showers and laundry. - annamom

Love this camp ground and the trails are nice. Best part is the bears you might see on the trails. Lots of things to do and see. - Diane Luc
Jul 2011 - $20.00
Ideal for those who want to get into the heart of the NP, and close to all the trails, without the crowds. It DOES have a free shuttle service to Lodgepole, despite what the NP website says. Beautiful setting; a black bear strolled past in a nearby meadow whilst there. Fire pits made for a perfect evening beer setting. For those staying for the nature - stay here instead of Lodgepole. - Sean B.

Internet didn't work properly. Came in late and no info available on door codes, passwords etc. Luckily someone there able to provide info for us. This is the worst value park we have stayed in but it is in a good location and the facilities were clean enough. - Sopkat

Very crowded - could not use slide out AND awning - had to walk through adjacent site to get in our door. Washrooms were filthy. Pool was clean well kept. Not a relaxing environment. Staff was there to collect fees - no more. - TonyPG

Found sites to be overly close. Not the most clean park we have stayed at. Enjoyed being close to Pandosy Street shopping. - fairmont_76
