The park is clean and close to the beach and amenities but the owner is over controlling and rude making it feel like you are looking over your shoulder all the time . We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We had a really great stay. Hosts were very helpful. The location is good, sites are large with concrete patio, grass. Able to ride our bikes everywhere from this park. We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The hosts are very nice, but we thought it overpriced. Sites are very close together and there is no privacy. It is bordered by a small oxbow pond. We were within walking distance of a lakefront park that had lots of friendly walkers. We would probably not stay here again. We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed at the Oxbow resort 5 years running. Starting in 2008. The campground and particularly the washrooms and showers are immaculate. The owner pay attention to detail and runs a tight ship. As other reviews have noted this is a small resort and you are camping in town so space and privacy are tight. That is offset but the location right across from the Skaha Lake beaches if you want a beach holiday in town this is the place to stay. If you want wilderness there is lots of space in BC for that.

This is a great location -- nice walk along the lake, good biking and a nice clean park. The park is very peaceful and clean and a joy to camp at. We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been camping at the Oxbow resort for the month of July for the last 7 hrs. We have friends that recommended the site to us. Our first experience at the camp ground was with the owner guiding me into the camping stall; it was a pleasant experience as we have a big unit. The owners run a clean well organized resort, the wash room and laundry facilities are modern and well kept,. The Skaha Beach with boat and Seadoo rentals is just across the road. We have gotten to know and have developed relationships with many of the regulars as we seem to keep coming back each year. We would recommend this park to anyone looking to enjoy the beautiful weather and hospitality in Penticton. We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground appeared to be clean and well kept, but we had a very unfortunate experience with the owner. We had arrived late in the evening and only needed a place to spend the night. The owner appeared to be impatient from the beginning since we had interrupted something he was doing, but he escorted us to our site, where, due to a misunderstanding, we backed the trailer dead center in the tight spot rather than to one side where he wanted it. At this he began to lose his temper and become verbally abusive. This escalated to actual threats with a waved stick when we accidentally ran one of the tow vehicle tires a couple of inches over the edge of the grass as we pulled out to correct it. He started shouting that we were now "damaging property" (the grass), and ranting about how expensive it was to irrigate and maintain. We were so shocked by this irrational outburst that we decided we needed to ask for a refund and leave. He followed us all the way to the office verbally threatening to "rip us out of our friggin' car" if we did not honor the camp speed limit. We were very upset and shaken by this encounter, but since we had not done any permanent damage nor verbally provoked this behavior, we felt that there had to be other issues involved for someone in a service industry to behave like this toward a customer. My husband is very skilled at backing a trailer; we have stayed in many RV parks, but we have never had any experience like this. We hope we never do again! Unfortunately, we cannot recommend this campground. We did not stay at this park. We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Yikes! Scary dirty! Dirty campsites and washrooms had no toilet paper or paper towels. Crowded and very outdated, worn out 70's style with old rickety, travel trailers that look like they live here permanently. Then there are the little duct-taped lattice fences and pots of plastic dirty flowers. The one positive thing is its located very close to all shopping, mall and restaurants. Oh another: the weather is always terrific in sunny Penticton. Lots of campgrounds to choose from but reserve early in the start of the year to get a spot.

Access into the sites is very tight. Luckily you are guided right into the spot without even getting out of your vehicle. The trees present a problem for slides. Very clean and well kept. Very little traffic noise even though it is beside a busy road. Best park in Penticton. We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are a little on the small side but host guides every RV into place. A really nice touch. Host is very knowledgeable with every type of rig. If you got a question, he has an answer. Really nice fellow. We would always stay at Oxbow when in Penticton. We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground was clean and well kept, although the sites were a little on the small side. It's a very nice campground compared to the others I've seen in Penticton- none of them seem to be very big here. It's right across the road from the lake, which is nice. They allow pets, but only small lap dogs, so check with them before you show up with Fido. I would stay here again in Penticton. Although the sites aren't very big, it's probably the nicest campground I've seen in Penticton. We camped at Oxbow RV Resort in a Motorhome.
