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

This park has lake front RV sites and lake access for all sites, boat rentals, swimming, playground for kids and excellent wifi.
We were there for 10 days in April so although busy, lots of space. We have also been there in the summer months when it is extremely busy and very crowded.
Great family park. - absnowbird

Packed in. Regretfully, most Okanagan Valley campgrounds are like this. Barely big rig friendly because of tight turns, many vehicles, etc. Campground was poorly maintained ... roadways were dusty, grass needed to be mowed, trees needed to be trimmed, undergrowth needed to be thinned out, etc. No place to walk/exercise dogs. No pride. Marina and beach would be positives. Wifi decent. Lots of potential but obviously not much incentive to improve. Definitely would not stay here again. - WinnMac

Clean, modern park with friendly staff. Overall a nice park, but they really pack you in tight. Nice dog park close by, within walking distance. Nice beach and marina. Thought it was a little overpriced, the way they jam you in there. Finding the office is a bit of a challenge. . - toolmantwo

Well kept and clean. Close to town. beach area not big and tough to get a spot on a busy day (bush area up to lake side in some spots). Good base for all types of activities. Great boat launch and parking area. Very big overflow camping area. - GerryT

Easy access to and from Hwy 97. Road noise was not an issue for us although we stayed at a lower level site. Great view of Kalamalka Lake. Marmots, although entertaining, can leave a mess in the grass around the site. Only stayed one night passing through the Vernon area. Would definitely stay here again. - Twispette

Love this park at this time of year. Sites terraced overlooking Kalamalma Lake. Clean gravel sites with grass and trees between. Very private. Host very helpful. Dry camping but generator use allowed in certain time periods. - Darleen

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

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

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

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

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 with clean level gravel sites with grass between in our area. Some permanents but for the most part very well kept. Only complaint is the difficult access to Hwy 97, which is very busy. There is a rail line right next to the park, but has very limited traffic (not a main line by any means). - DaveyB

This is a nice campground right on Swan Lake. Sites were shady. Bathrooms were great, showers great (free), pool, lake front. Gravel and grass sites. Picnic table. Staff was friendly and helpful. You cross over the train tracks to get in, train went thru around 7 pm. Would stay here again and recommend to others. - Wyboo

Good clean facility close to amenities. Sites that back on to a small pond\lake well shaded. Good for a one or two night stay on route to Penticton. Nice pool on site. - Ljohnston
Jul 2016 - $51.00
Absolutely wonderful location with nice views. Only 9 secluded sites, which made it quaint. Loved the fresh vegetables. Very handy to town but you think you are well out in the country. Can't wait for our next visit here! - PaulMac

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

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

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

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
