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. We camped at swiws Provincial Park (Haynes Point) in a Truck Camper.

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. We camped at swiws Provincial Park (Haynes Point) in a Motorhome.

This is a very pretty campground, and we were able to secure a wonderful site overlooking the lake. There is a sign warning that the winds can come up quickly and be quite strong; we certainly found that to be true. The campground attendant will come around and collect the fee and sell firewood if you desire. The sites are large, level, and well-separated with some vegetation to provide privacy. There are water taps but with a boil-water warning. There is no dump station, so it is best to arrive with full tanks and plan on hauling out your waste water. The attendant told us about a dump station not very far away, but we did not use it as we were headed toward the U.S. and the dump was in the opposite direction. It is best to arrive early as, even off season, the campground filled and people were camping in the overflow area. Our Verizon cell phone worked well and even picked up a signal from a U.S. tower, so we were able to use data without an international charge! We were also able to find a site with Satellite access, although this would be possible in only a few sites. We would stay in this park again if in the area. We camped at swiws Provincial Park (Haynes Point) in a Motorhome.

This Provincial Park is set on a long thin spit of land that juts out into Lake Osoyoos. It's a very scenic and popular park and even on the last day of September we just managed to snag one of the last available spots when we pulled in. Late arrivals were out of luck. Many of the sites are lake side sites with gorgeous views of Lake Osoyoos, the surrounding hills and the city of Osoyoos in the distance. There is a day use area and an off leash dog area along one section of the shoreline. There's also a lovely nature walk through a marsh area that shouldn't be missed. Swimming, fishing and boating are all popular pastimes here. The sites themselves are spacious and fairly private with picnic tables and fire pits. Mature willows and pine trees provide shade. I would give this park a higher rating, maybe a 9 or even a 10, if only it had better services, especially considering the $30 fee. There are no hook-ups, no showers and no dump station. The water faucets had "boil for two minutes" warning signs on them. I think this would be a very noisy and crowded campground in the summer, but our stay here at the end of September was quiet and peaceful. We would stay here again. We camped at swiws Provincial Park (Haynes Point) in a Motorhome.
