26 RV Parks near Lake Country, British Columbia
Sep 2018 - $35.00
We called ahead to confirm that we didn't need a reservation and that there were sites large enough for a 35' motorhome with 3 slides and a towcar. When we arrived we were given 3 sites to go and look at and were told to park in the one we wanted. There was a line of traffic and we weren't able to move our rig, so we walked to preview the sites. Only 1 site could accommodate the rig so I returned to the office and paid for that particular site. We were then able to move our rig out of the line and headed to the site only to find that someone else had occupied it. On returning to the office we were told it is given to whoever parks in it first! It didn't matter that I had already paid for it!! We were given more sites to look at only to find them either too small or not level. We tried one site and the gravel was so deep and loose that we couldn't level the motorhome. Out of desperation and exhaustion we settled on a dirt site that was too short for the motorhome but since no one else was parked nearby we could maneuver in and out. The young girls at the reception obviously are not familiar with the particular needs of different types and sizes of RVs. The park is rustic with a lot of small sites that were packed tight especially near the water. There are tree branches that make it difficult for big rigs to drive through the park. If you do decide to stay here, the sites are larger near the entrance gate (which we only found out the next day when we walked the whole park). Reserve your site if you are sure it is appropriate for your needs. - Lorrieb

The park was not what we expected based on the reviews. It is crowded, dusty, and difficult to navigate, especially for a big rig. To use an analogy, it is like a tenement for RVs. We had no view of the lake and were on top of our neighbors on both sides. It's relatively inexpensive so I guess you get what you pay for. I would not call it big rig friendly. On the positive side, the Wifi worked better than expected. Perhaps there is 50 amp somewhere in the park but we got 30 amp. - BigDawg1

This is a very nice park. There are two rows of sites that have lake views. The row along the beach is for small RV's, and the row behind it is pull-through for big rigs. We were in site E - a pull-through. View would've been pretty limited if the park was full. Site was long and level. Park is very well kept. - Gannonrv

This park is mostly owned and permanent sites. Having stayed here before, it seems noticeably older but still well enough maintained. The staff were excellent and most helpful. The residents were reserved and the park was clean and quiet. Some interior roads were a bit narrow for a motor home, but our site was easily accessed. This park was expensive in comparison to other local parks, but a significantly better value regarding quality and facilities. Will return again. - BMonk

Staff is very friendly & helpful. This park has rental and owned sites and condos too. We stayed 1 month in May and enjoyed the winter monthly rate of $ 675.00 everything included.
The location is just north of Kelowna and off the Hwy. Every once in a while you hear a plane flying by, but not disturbing. The roads are paved and a bit narrow. The setup and layout is nice with plenty of greenery. However, some trees might impede the satellite signal.
There are Longtimers, overnighters and park models with porches side by side, but very nice and clean
The sites are big enough and on conctete. Hookups are water, power, sewer, cable TV, all working fine. Wifi is working but limited to a certain bandwith, after reaching it, it gets really slow. On the next day you start fresh again or purchase more from an external company. In the computer room you can hook up to a CAT5. There is a store and a restaurant on site.
The restrooms we used were all tiled, nice and clean. There are several pools and hot tubs, fitness area, sauna, tennis, golf, beach, wood working shop, library, game room, etc. We liked it very much and will return. - CamperAndy

For staying 2 nights @ $55/night we were given "the best site" overlooking the water. It was very small and difficult to enter with others parked so closely. The electric was not even 30 amps and we were not allowed to run AC at 95 degrees. We were gladly given a complete refund and we went on our way to a Provincial Park. - LeslieF

Older park which needs an upgrade. Electrical plugs were 15 amp and voltage suspect as my converter hummed more than usual. Access to marina and small beach by crossing a railway track, although only heard one train while there. Access road fairly steep so no good for big rigs. - Onemoretrail

Old and somewhat run down. Lots of permanent residents. The spot we were given was hard to get into and not at all level. The pictures on the website are a bit of an exaggeration. This was the only vacant spot we could find in Kelowna at the time. The operator and the local residents were friendly but don't expect too much, it's not fancy. Getting a spot in Kelowna in the summer can be challenging, but next time we'll try harder. - Tyee

The access road is quite steep and windy. This park has a group campsite and three individual campsite loops. The sites in the first loop are closer and not as private as the other two loops. However, there were two long pull-through sites in that loop that would accommodate any size rig. We had a site in loop 3 and it was a good size with many trees for shade and privacy. Unfortunately, the trees were cottonwoods and the sticky seeds meant picking up debris and gravel and making a mess wherever we stepped. Our site was level, had a picnic table and fire ring. The old pit toilets in our loop have been converted to flush with a sink. No dump station in the park. Closest would be the one at Bear Creek park to the south. Picked up two OTA TV channels in HD. No Wi-Fi, but had 4 bars on the Rogers network. There are two beaches for swimming, a pet beach for dogs, a boat ramp, and a few trails around the former Fintry Estate. We were fortunate to get a tour of the Manor House, which is where the Scottish Liard, James Dun-Waters lived. A trail up 371 steps takes you to Shorts Creek Falls which was in full flood during our stay. The former estate also has other buildings such as an octagonal dairy barn and a former packing house for fruit. Very interesting place and an enjoyable stay. We would most definitely come back again. - Onemoretrail

Nightly stay $32 Cdn. (did not book on-line). We've stayed at Fintry a number of times and always enjoyed it. This is the first time that we camped in the new loops though. The second loop (51-75) is partly shaded on the perimeter sites and fully exposed in the interior. If it's a typical Okanagan summer day, you'll want shade. The third loop (76-100) is almost all in the open. I recommend the first loop (1-50). It is more established and better lake access with 1-13A right on the waters edge. Also, in the first loop, is the only playground for the kids. Fintry is a delta so it's completely flat, great for bicycling. If you're energetic, climb the 300+ stairs to the falls. Well worth the effort. The boat launch was closed due to high water but we were allowed to launch our kayaks from the shore. My only gripe is the $12 extra for having an extra vehicle. If you don't want to pay, you'll have to park outside the Park's gate. Also, the extra fee charged per day to book on-line, puts the cost close to full-service campground prices. - HowieS82

This is a very nice provincial park that is very busy during the summer season. It has sites that are in the shade and sites in the sun. Several sites are right on the lake which is good if you have a boat. There is a modern boat ramp and dock. There are a few pull-through sites that should accommodate the largest of RVs. The road down from Westside road is a bit steep and windy but if you take it slow you should have no problems. Westside road itself is also a bit windy, but again take it slow and it's not a problem. We will be back. - cachencouple

This lovely park is located in the peaceful countryside less than 10 minutes from downtown Kelowna. It overlooks the valley and on a clear day you can see the lake. It's surrounded by fruit orchards (the owners have a pick your own peach orchard) and there are many fruit and vegetable stands close by. The entrance and access roads are wide and easy to navigate. The sites are long, wide and level. We were able to park our Jeep Wrangler in front or beside our 40' RV. Power, water pressure, and free WIFI were excellent. Verizon Phone service (roaming in Canada) was good. Direct TV reception was good and there are no large shade trees to interfere with the signal. Washer and dryer on premises take Loonies and Canadian quarters. You can get change form the owners who live on site and are very nice and very conscientious. This is a clean, quiet campground and we gave it a ten based on the size of the sites, ease of parking the RV, the view, and the owners' attention to detail. That rating is based on it's comparison to other RV parks in the area and not to RV parks in the US, the latter of which often have alot of extra amenities like swimming pools, etc. We would definitely stay here again. - 1987 Martin

Only ten level gravel sites set on an elevated hillside with pleasant valley views, set among fruit orchards. FHU, good strong free wifi, laundry available, only minutes to town. Friendly helpful owner. - flexitdriver

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

We paid $46.80 Cdn per night. Our GPS took us directly to the park. Without it we would probably have hesitated at the entrance. Another RV Park shares the access road and signage could be a little better. You must cross a cattle guard to get into the park and the road to and inside the park is mostly very dry dirt. Most park users drive very slow but not all. If you travel at a little more than a crawl a lot of dust billows. Check in is very easy. A bulletin board meets you just after entering the park with your name and site listed. You are then directed to a self check in station where you will find your Cable package (I do hate "the box"). Later you have a visit from one of the Camp Managers who will take your money and provide you with information and the Internet password. The operators are very friendly and helpful. They will sell you very fresh, onsite grown, produce (in season). There are only 9 sites (6 pull thru and 3 back in) plus one Over Flow site that has just power and water. All services are properly placed on the left side. The sites are terraced but not all are level front to back. They are long enough to accommodate a 45' with tow easily. We had a bit of a problem getting our cable installed. Owner arrived and in a few seconds he had our issue ironed out. WiFi is usually very strong. We usually had a good strong connection. We did not try to stream any video but, for what we needed, it worked well. We did have problems with our power. We were here for just over 3 weeks and during a very hot period. Our 30 AMP service breaker would pop sometimes five or six times a day with just the A/C running. We could not safely leave our dog unattended in the coach. Owner blamed in our surge protector. The problem still existed after we disconnected it. Others too had the same problem. Because of this and the dust, we will not return. - Rollin Ollens

This is a small "boutique" campground on a working farm. I believe it only has 9 sites. Trees separate the level, spacious sites. It is located far enough from Kelowna (a few miles away) that you don't feel like you are in an urban area. If you are into wineries, this is the place for you. There are probably 50 wineries within a 30-minute drive and fruit orchards are everywhere you look. You can order vegetables from the campground garden in the morning and it is ready for you in the late afternoon. Be cautious about buying fruit to take into the United States as there are restrictions on what can enter. - PatriotParents

This park is a working farm but it is so quiet you can hear yourself think. They do not allow children under the age of 14 to stay here,which is fine for us. There is a single clothing washer and dryer available,$5.00 for a load. It is about a 15 minute drive to the city beach. When we return we will definitely stay here again. - Fun finders

We stayed here while visiting friends in Kelowna and enjoyed the park and the owners. As others have said, the sites were quite long and accommodated our Jeep and RV hooked up. There were tall hedges between sites so we had a lot of privacy. The sites were level, the hook-ups were good. We did not use TV but our Verizon was fine here. Veggies from the garden are available for purchase. Interesting to see a working farm and our views were of the owners actually out in the field. We woul definitely stay here again. I thought the price high bu it was the going rate in this area. We also benefitted from the 75% exchange rate. - swike

Access to the park is good. Easy to find and pavement all the way. Parameter road is dirt with a spattering of gravel and lots of pot holes. Check in was different. We arrived without a reservation but had called ahead to find out if they had a space. Their Web Site specifies $30.00 and up depending on site, date and lenghth of stay. We were appointed a space (11) and were told to go get set up and then we would be checked in. There is no office per say. I was invited into the owner's kitchen and we proceeded to complete the transaction. I was expecting to pay $30.00 night as this is off season and the spot they gave me had "NO" services! It was late in the day and we were already set up otherwise I would have left. I would have been just as comfortable at a Walmart. Our site was level loose pea gravel that was easily tracked in to the coach. We did have cedar trees to give us some privacy. We were the only transients in the park. There was a trashy old school bus with a lot of baggage across from us but the rest of the units didn't look too bad. There were no restaurants or shops withing walking distance. We paid $45.00 night and feel we paid way too much. We did not like being tricked into staying here. We will never return. - Rollin Ollens

The spots in this small park are spacious. Each has nice tall hedges on either side, you wouldn't know you have neighbors beside you. Nice quiet area. Hook-ups are convenient and worked well. Spots are level. Staff were pleasant and they offer cable boxes so you can receive a number of tv stations. Location is convenient for stores and seeing sights around Kelowna if you have a vehicle. Will definitely stay here again. - Riptorn

Camped in a 35" motorhome. We are self contained so cannot comment on restrooms/shower facilities. Stayed in site #16. Pros - - Site was level and pretty spacious - Lots of trees and shade - Great location to explore Kelowna, pick cherries, kayak lake, go wine or cider tasting and bike over the trestle at Myra Canyon Trestles. Cons - - Pretty crowded in summer but the lake is so huge if you kayak you wont be crowded - No hookups so no AC in the hot summer - Gina A

At this time of the year sites were first come first served, so we got lucky and were able to stay in one of our favourite ones - site 16. Campground was probably about 25% occupied during our stay. The sites at this campground are now 100% reservable from May long weekend to Labour Day weekend. Expect this place to be 100% full in July and August. There was an overflow area in the day use area at one time. Best to check if this is still the case.
Our site was a level, gravel back-in that had a green space next to Bear Creek. Plenty of space on either side for privacy. The sites along the creek on our loop were shorter than the rest, but a 40 ft rig would have fit ours. Walking trail behind our site that accessed the creek or road to other parts of the park. No cable TV or Wi-Fi and satellite TV would be a challenge due to all the trees. Even though the park is only across the lake from Kelowna, wasn't able to get any OTA channels. Generator hours are 9-11am and 6-8pm. Firewood is available from the host.
Only two of the campground loops were open with the third opening on the May long weekend. Loops 1-45 and 46-80 have a nicer landscape than loop 81-122. They also are close to the playgrounds and picnic area. As all campsites are basic with no utilities, there is a dump station with drinking water across the highway from the campground. Campground gates are closed between 11pm and 7am and host can open them up in an emergency.
Across the highway is the Bear Creek Canyon Trail. It is a 5km, fairly steep, loop trail that has lookouts with views of the canyon and falls. Also a nice panorama of Okanagan Lake and the city of Kelowna. We would definitely stay here again. - Onemoretrail

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
