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

Expensive. A little hard to find, especially if the sun were down. No shade, but there will be 20 years from now. Sites are not entirely level. I feel as if I am under the Sun's anvil. Washrooms are new and there are two which are Unisex. WiFi works well. All sites are 50 amp only, so bring along an adapter. They do rent adapters for $2 per night. Power is stable and voltage drop is acceptable. sites are "twinned" with services in the middle. This allows space on the side door between sites. There are picnic tables. I had no choice about staying as I could not find another campground with an opening. At the price I would not stay again, unless nothing else was available. - User3761

We stayed here for three nights in late September. Upon arrival, we found a sign which had designated sites for those who had reserved. Ours was site 15, with all hookups, a privacy fence from the adjacent site, and a great view of the valley to the east.
There are a number of fruit trees in the park, albeit a bit smaller than are shown on their web site. But no matter.
There were quite a few permanent campers but that didn't detract from being a transient.
The office is open during select hours which was not a problem, particularly if you have a reservation, as all you need to do is to check the board upon arriving. While there were only two restroom/showers, that wasn't a problem. They were spacious and clean.
The sites have a variety of hookups, from dry camping on up. Suggest that you state what hookups you need when reserving.
The location is about 3 miles from downtown Kelowna which is a great community. Lots of options for walking, hiking, cycling. A good place to start is the park along the lake, just north of the cross lake bridge. Elsewhere there are a number of wineries to sample, and downtown has some very nice restaurants. - Ratch

We stayed in this park 5 years ago and it looks like little has changed since then. There are some pull-through and some back-in spots. The main things this park has going for it are the views from the camp sites and it's proximity to Kelowna. Even with that, I'd say it's a bit over priced. - cachencouple

Convenient spot to stay at while our daughter was in a softball tournament. Kind of pricey when one considers that there is no cable hookup, and Internet was spotty but mostly non existent. The A-E sites at the north end of the campground have great views of the valley. Host was pleasant and accommodating. For laundry, bring loonies; that is the only coin that will work the washing machine. We found this campground to be very quiet. - Fish dude

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
Jul 2009 - $54.00
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
Oct 2015 - $44.00
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

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
Jun 2012 - $62.00
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
Jul 2009 - $50.00
Found sites to be overly close. Not the most clean park we have stayed at. Enjoyed being close to Pandosy Street shopping. - fairmont_76

This park, that receives straight "10's" from another review site, doesn't receive 10's from us. It is clean, I suppose pretty to some, and apparently has lots of amenities, which we didn't use or see. The sites are separated by large well kept hedges but they are crammed one on top of the other. You can't see 10 feet to the right or left and just the street in front. To us, it felt like the most crowded apartment complex ever with some greenery. The sites and street are so tight it was a miracle my husband got our 29' fifth wheel backed in. Lots of permanent residents, their sites are well kept. Lots of summer visitors--sort of a very crowded resort. There was a large grassy dog park which was a welcome amenity for our dogs. To me the price was outrageous and to my eye, the park is not pretty. To others, perhaps it is. - DCP

Roads are very narrow. You need to go down the street to a gravel area, do a U-turn and come back. No easy exit. No cable TV, Wi-Fi (Internet) only available in one building. Pools are closed until summer weather. Dog park at one end of a large park. Garbage in one area only. Very expensive for what is offered. Rate is $45 for low season and $70 for high. We stayed with our Coast to Coast membership. - Pinantan

Very friendly staff, clean and lots to do. Back in sites with lots of space, green and well maintained. Will use again. - John WD Smith
Sep 2014 - $50.00
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

Excellent campground with large spacious sites. Sites are lined with trees and shrubs so it's very private and quiet. You are on a vegetable garden farm and their vegetables are great. Very short drive into Kelowna. Reminder this is an adult campground and they do not offer restrooms. - hikeski

If you seek peace & quiet and a beautiful view then you will find it here. Large pull-through sites that could easily accommodate our 45 ft motorhome. I do suggest checking it out before driving in as we found it easier to back in to our site. Level private site with good 50 amps. Satellite reception was good even though there are trees between the sites. No bathrooms or amenities, which is perfect for us. Not a place for children. Good location away from the traffic of Kelowna. - Freedom Bus

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
Oct 2014 - $32.00
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

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
