26 Parks near Osoyoos, British Columbia
Jul 2006 - $31.00
Quite loud and crowded. Sites are very close together so there is not much privacy. There were no sewer hook ups or sani dump available so we had to watch our tanks carefully . They will have your RV pumped out for a fee. - frdfan

Bit of a lineup for check-in as it was quite busy when we arrived. Once we got to the counter it was quick and efficient and staff were friendly. We got a site in the C section which have full hookups and cable TV. Most sites are back-in, but there are pull-throughs available. Ours was a gravel back-in, level, fairly private with a hedge on either side. Water supplied by hydrant. Excellent sewer outlet close to the middle of our rig. Dangling phone connection box from the pedestal that didn't appear to be used anymore. 30 amp cover missing. Other than that, all utilities worked fine. Cable TV had around 50 channels and they were clear. Didn't bother with the Wi-Fi, so no comment there. There are about 5 or 6 sites for dumpsters and recycle bins for bottles and cans, so not too far a walk. Noticed the yurts are no longer there and that area is now occupied by tents. Small beach and play area, but not much for entertaining the kids. The horse rides looked like they were already finished for the season. The store is only open for July and August, so it was closed at the time of our stay. Propane available, but more expensive than at local gas stations. A few walking trails that lead to the rest of the resort or towards town. We have been staying here many times in the past and will continue to do so. - Onemoretrail

I have similarly reviewed this park in the past, the office staff is even worse now than it was 4 years ago. They really don't care about customer complaints, sites are often double booked. Long term stay(1 month) is supposed to get preference over shorter stays. I book 1 year in advance and still I am expected to stay in one site until the people in my preferred site have moved on after staying for 2 or 3 nights. Why aren't these short stays put into the site that I had to occupy for the same 2 or 3 nights so I can go straight into the site I booked for 1 month. The pool is supposed to be open from the beginning of Sep. till the end of June. We were given 3 different excuses as to why it was not open when we arrived on Sep.9. At least if they are going to lie, they should get together and tell the same lie. Apparently they used the same stories back in June when friends were here. They are the only game in town so they can get away with whatever they want. I hate to admit it but I will likely be back next year unless I can find somewhere else close. If the facilities were managed and maintained better, this could be a very nice park. - dajracer

Large park with 350 sites. We stayed for 3 days and were put in an "open" row with no vegetation between the sites. For $48Cdn the first night and $35 the other two nights (rates changed Sep 9), we expected more - perhaps we've been spoiled at other parks.
Sites on the upper part of the park have conifers between the sites, so maybe we were just unlucky (or not big enough - our TT is 20').
The "premium" sites on the lake were not something we would want. Sites are tight and with more than one vehicle at some sites, area looked like a used car parking lot.
Overall park is quiet at night but during the day between barking, yappy dogs, pre-school kiddies, and large groups of people chatting incessantly, it is quite noisy. I know, a good time to go sightseeing.
Wifi is now included in rate and has been quite good at all times of the day.
Our site has a cable outlet but I didn't try it so I don't know whether park still offers cable or not.
We didn't use the washrooms or the laundry so cannot comment on those.
Park has posted 10 kmh speed limit but it is not enforced. Some people speed even tho there are speed bumps. An accident waiting to happen!
We'd probably stay here again but be more selective in the site we were assigned. - DCM/JMB

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very clean restrooms.
Was very disappointed that we went to the park host 3 times during the day, but nobody ever came out.
We have stayed at many parks where the hosts would always walk around talking to people and was available. - BGoose

Beautiful sunny weekend and we had a waterfront site with our friends, on a double site. Essentially no services but still nice. Fortunately we received the site at half price which makes it more palatable. Lot spacing is spacious with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was gravel and features a fire ring and picnic table. - Rib

We were lucky to get a site as the campground was full by noon the day we arrived. There is an overflow section near the day use section available when all the campsites are full. The rate for the overflow is the same from what other campers told me. Our site was a gravel back-in that included a table and grill. No utilities are available other than a couple of water spigots and the dump station is at the 115 St. municipal works (excellent facility and free). I didn't use the park water after looking at past reviews and filled up at the dump station in town. The park toilets are flush toilets that used to be pit types and consequently there are no wash basins, only hand sanitizer dispensers. We managed to pick up on the antenna 4 US TV stations and oddly no Canadian ones. No Wi-Fi that I am aware of, just the peace and quiet of the park. Other than a few generators on during certain hours (9-11 am and 6-8 pm) and the odd dog barking it was fairly quiet. When the water is calm great place to kayak. Even the odd person swimming although the water must be fairly cool this time of year. Two pay phones near the center of the campground. Dumpsters in three different locations so not far to walk with the garbage. The park is very popular with locals who walk to the campground and on the Haynes Park Trail. Despite the lack of facilities this is an excellent park to relax. Reservations a must from May 15 to approximately September 12-15. Other times come early as this place fills up quickly. We will continue to use this park when the mood strikes. - Onemoretrail

The advertised Wi-Fi only works at the office...the owners don't care about the renters services. Laundry will cost you $6 a load, TV will cost $25 a week extra and there is no pool. The beach was nice and the park was clean. - Polyian

The campsites are spread across a hillside, so there are retaining walls, etc. Each site is paved (pavers) or gravel with a patch of grass and some little trees that separate each site. (The online photos are a few years old -- the separator trees are all 8 to 10 feet tall now.) The park is attractive, well maintained, with a pleasant staff. It is located well off the main road. My one real complaint is that the person who checked me in did not warn me that the showers required putting (Canadian!!) quarters into a meter to get water. This lack of warning is particularly annoying as we discussed locating our campsite near the showers and I even commented that the shower in our tiny van-camper was not very satisfactory. Folks, this is a border town and we were spending our last night in Canada. I had gotten rid of almost all the Canadian coins I'd had. (Only 2 dimes left.) It was a shock to discover that an additional payment was required - downgrade from "good" to "average" for this. (Such fees/meters are common in areas with tight water supplies and otherwise don't bother me.) - Pete_by_the_river

This is mostly a ownership park and they rent out the sites that are available. We were given a "large" site for our 38' MH but we just barely fit, so not sure how anything longer would get in here. Roads are very narrow as well (took more time to back into a slot than most public parks with lots of trees). Our utilities are also on the wrong side (would have been better to pull in but roads are marked one way). Sites are mostly concrete pads, few have a bit of grass.
Wi-fi does not work well at all, most of the time you cannot get connected to the service provider to get authorized and when you do it is very very slow. Nice private beach area, and the park is quiet but there seems to be a lot of smokers here and they smoke outside. Utilities work well and park is very clean. - sheltieRV

Just 2 miles from border, a perfect place to camp after a long day of driving through Canada. Large, open, fhu, nice views. - Cake on the beach
Aug 2015 - $22.00
I agree with the last review. Very nice park with very good utilities. Wifi worked very well for us. Views are good. This park is very close to the border so we also had the issue with the cell phone. Not sure why but there were very few Rv's when we were here but all sites are big, fairly level and clean. No pull-through's may discourage some but a nice place to spend a night.Grass between each site. We would stay here again. - RayN

We liked this campground very much. The owner is friendly and helpful making our stay very pleasant. Utilities were adequate and site was level. We did not use or check out the bathhouse/laundry. Provided Internet was weak at our site. Campground located up a hill with great views of a lake and hills. Campground is next to a Border Patrol Station but it had very little traffic and had no impact on our stay. There are a couple of things that may be bothersome. The access road to the campground is steep narrow, and gravel but we did not have any issues with the road towing our big 5th wheel. The other issue is the proximity to the Canadian border. One cannot use US cell service because the signal pings off Canadian towers. We had just entered back into the states after a summer trip to Alaska and our rig was filthy. The campground owner allowed us to wash both our truck and 5th wheel which we appreciated. Too bad that this place is way under utilized as there were only a couple other campers. We would stay here again if in the area. - roadking

Camping fees are now $26 for dry camping, no water, elect or sewer. $33 for W & E sites. Dump station is $5 if you don't pay for a camping site. Nice grass. Mostly back-in sites. There are a few pull-thrus. We didn't actually stay, but I did walk through the park to update this report, since there has not been an update since 2014. We parked in the gravel lot at Prince's Grocery since we just wanted a place to park overnight. - A-S_Travels

We stayed here while making a day trip into Canada. There is a very good swimming area on the park beach. Our rate was for a non-hookup site. The sites are gravel with grass on all sides. - S_CAMPY

Great place to stay. Grassy and spacious tent-sites in a beautiful surrounding. Clean restrooms, hot showers. Very good, taken care off. Would stay here again! - lyan

Price is $10.97. You must go to Prince's Grocery store across the street to purchase a registration receipt to put in the window. The dump is free if you stay, $3 of you just want to dump. No sewer or water hookups. A fresh water spigot is available to fill your water tank. The water tastes good. About the location of the electric post. The posts are all the way at the rear of the gravel parking spots and if you park so your hookup is on the wrong side you may need an extension cord. However unless the place is really, really busy, you shouldn't need to park on the "wrong" side. If 2 RV's are parked side by side in the adjacent sites you won't be able to open an awning and your slide outs will be very close to the other RV. As others stated this is just a gravel parking lot along the hwy. OK for overnight. There is a very nice city CG almost across the road for $26 if you prefer more than a gravel parking lot. - A-S_Travels

This is a clean park. Well, park is a stretch. It's really a strip of gravel along the highway. There's traffic noise during the day, and even late at night a truck comes by now and then. Electrical boxes are in pairs, so the box is on the wrong side for half the sites. The boxes are at the back of each site. With a motorhome you can park head-in, but still may need an extension. Not all boxes have 50 amps. Sites are near level, close together, with no shade. There are 2 water spigots and a dump. Verizon data service works well. The shower is 2 quarters for 10 minutes; it is not clean, and lacks privacy. The laundry has 2 top-loaders ($0.75) and 2 dryers ($0.75). - wjzcbn

This park was ok. Was located right by the highway and noisy. The bathrooms could use some help. Park is very dusty with no shade at all. Overall was a place to sleep, but I wouldn't stay here for very long. Also has some very old and dilapidated campers that detracted from the overall camping experience. Thank you. - qwark

We have stayed at River Oaks for four different visits when crossing the Canadian border. The owners are always very friendly and accommodating. We have always had a 50 amp site on the river which is roomy and grassy with a picnic table and fire ring. As another reviewer stated, the laundry room is small with two different prices on the machines. The laundry is clean and I always find it convenient but do come prepared with your coins and supplies as there is no change machine or vending. The park is a combination of permanent mobile homes and rv's. We have always found the park convenient and comfortable for our stays. - Golfgirl

I would rate it higher, but they don't have enough 50 amp sites, and it is really hot there in the summer. Easy access from main road. - Junia
Aug 2016 - $27.00
This is a large park with plenty of space, and a site on the river is pretty. The bathrooms offer only one shower and one toilet per side. Possibly there is poison ivy near the river. The only complaint we have is loud blowing from the factory during the day time work hours. This is good for a one night stay while driving through, but it seems there are many there for weeks at a time and several permanents in modular homes. The phones and jet pack worked well, not so at Bains park, which was too close to the border. - saturn7

Nice little place to stay with friendly seasonals to chat with. Owner was very helpful and accommodating to get our 40 footer into a spot. Pool was great and there's a hog shack there with the best pulled pork I've ever tasted. Definitely coming back here again. - Marc B

Not certain how Woodall's has this as a 4 star as it is clearly only a 3 star. Small RV park behind a motel. Some longer term residents, but very quiet campground. Nothing fancy, but then from what I have seen in BC that is true of a lot of them. On the plus side it has cable TV plus the best Wi-Fi I have experienced in 3 weeks on the road this trip. The park has about 7 or 8 pull throughs which are wide and they have trimmed the trees severely to help out with access. Biggest challenge is the turn getting onto the road leading up to the sites. It is tight so will need to pay attention. Would stay here again if in the area. - AZJC

Nice small rv site in back of a motel. Quiet and clean. Many snowbirds during our stay. Very nice and helpful owners. Pet friendly, they even have a dog run where they can go unleashed. Probably very busy during the summer season. I would definitely stay again. - thomasgunnar

We had the best experience ever. We left a prior campground because of it's rudeness, unfriendliness, and needed to get out of there. This lady manager was awesome. She got us a site immediately, greeted us through the gate and treated with nothing but kindness. Just what we needed. She gave us suggestions of places to go. Later that evening another lady came over and helped us hook up a tv. She was determined no matter what, we would have at least one tv working. It was awesome to watch the Olympics on a US station and enjoy it. We would recommend anyone to stay here. Very accommodating. - Linda Ott

Mostly concrete and asphalt with small grass strips. Almost no shade trees. Sites are close together. Close to grocery, etc. Restrooms were very clean. Staff was friendly. We stayed at this park as a way point on our way to a destination. It worked well for that but would not stay here for any other reason. Too much asphalt and concrete. - Doug Toye

Desert Gem? I think gem is a bit of a stretch. Located right in town of Oliver and countless wineries. Park is all cement and pavement with minimal shade. Good hookups, but fairly close quarters. We were parked near a group of several monster class A diesel pushers traveling together. Drinking and loud music would commence at noon or before and go into the later hours. We complained to management but nothing done. Social aspect tolerable, but having music ramped up to boom across the park not acceptable. Certainly tainted our visit here. Pet friendly with good access to outside park with doggy bags. - flugelboneman
