Very cool, rustic campground. Very acommodating host (met us at 9:30pm in the pouring rain and helped us get set up!).
Great for families, lots of animals and the creek running no more than 20m from the campsite. Good electrical and water hook up.
Also really good to see a street hockey / basketball court and a good children's play area!
Loved our stay here, will return for sure! - Pete10K

This was our second time here. Will preface comments with a warning to all dog owners. Beware of Rusty the feral border collie. This dog and its counterpart chase and kill coyotes around the ranch. For no apparent reason, Rusty attacked our 50 lb. standard schnauzer. He had him by the throat and there is no doubt in my mind his intent was to kill. I was able to separate the dogs, incurring several bites. If it had been a smaller dog, he would have died. It put a pall on the rest of our stay and we left a day early.
This is a beautiful rustic setting for an rv park. There are currently about 6 sites, but plans are for more. Wonderful walking trails and the opportunity to view a working ranch. Dog control will have to improve. - flugelboneman

Iooking for something different? Black Diamond ranch is unlike your run of the mill RV park. If you like quaint and charming, hoses, pigs, chickens and llamas, you have come to the right place. You will not be expected to keep your dog tethered, but if he harasses the livestock he will be taken to task by the resident border collies. You are greeted by the charming owner. Coldwater creek runs by your window. Numerous trails abound. You are invited to tour the ranch and befriend the residents. Good 30 amp power and water, but come in with empty tanks. We loved it and will be back. Don't be put off by the "rustic" entrance. - flugelboneman

Excellent park with large level sites - gravel driveways and grass. One or two trees per site.
Excellent staff. Washrooms spotless. Laundry svces available but did not see laundry "room".
Only "slight" downside is proximity to lumber mill and its noise. More like white noise than noise that might keep you awake. Sounded likemill was only running 2 shifts so overnight (and weekend) was quiet.
We would definitely stay here again.
Nightly rate is in Cdn funds. - DCM/JMB

Well maintained, spacious sites with good grass and some shade. Friendly and helpful operators. WIFI near the office, didn't work in our site. Nice walking trail and river adjacent to the park. The rate was $32CDN, or about $27US. - Creigh Gordon

This is a very nice park, lots of grassy areas between sites. Each site is graveled and level. Water pressure is 100 so a reducer is necessary. Washrooms are very clean and large with 2 showers each. Management is very welcoming and friendly. We will definitely stay here again. - leesdogs

Nice campground a bit outside of Merritt. The paved road to Monck is pretty bumpy on the way in, the way out to Merritt is much better. Well laid out campground with some space between sites. Quite a few sites suitable for bigger rigs. Roads inside the campground are paved, the sites are gravel. Level was good. Very quiet day and night. Dump (5$ fee) inside the campground. One nice loop trail takes you up to some nice viewpoints over Nicola Lake. Washrooms have flush toilets but no showers. Large grassy beach area with lots of picnic tables. I assume it can be busy here during the summer holidays. We'll be back. - TheSchweitzers

Sites vary in size but the largest ones can easily accommodate the large rigs and boats. The sites are hard packed gravel, fairly level, with excellent quality picnic tables and fire rings. There are no RV facilities at the sites (power, water, sewer) but they do have a number of potable water taps throughout the park and 1 sani station that you can use for $5 (free Sani-station at the Canadian Tire in town about 10 minutes away). There are no shower facilities so for the tenters take note. The washrooms are typical park washrooms. It does get very dusty which gets into everything. The wind really picks up at night so bring those awnings in. All in all, a very good provincial park with spacious RV sites. Easy access to a sandy beach and large playing field. Would come back again if in the area. - bakermancoq

Park is very beautiful, set on Nicola Lake. Staff was very friendly and helpful, even getting us firewood after the store was closed. Lake was a little cold which made swimming interesting. Wind came up a couple nights, so pulled the awning in just to be safe. Day use area was amazing, with grass and sand on the beach. This park is highly recommended. - JAAndFamily

This park is not worth the price per night, although the people are very friendly. The park is kind of messy, sites are not leveled and muddy. - henny04

This place looks much nicer in pictures than in person. Roads aren't great, sites are completely ungroomed and unmaintained. Apparently, they have not heard of a rake, weed eater or lawn mower. Our fire pit was full to the top with old coals. Some sites with junk piled everywhere, very unsightly. Where we camped, the sites were so close together that our sewer hose was pretty much directly underneath the next guy's picnic table. Very friendly lady at the store, but that's about the only positive at this place. Would never return or recommend. - User3203

This is a diamond in the rough. Its currently being upgraded. Dirt roads, 25 full hookup spots, tenting spots available. Some full timers. Very pet friendly. Could be bad if it rained; they need to improve the roads. Hopefully this upgrading will be ongoing. This is rustic but has good potential. If not raining would stay here again. - rwberg
