Have stayed here for the last 3 years. The location and beach access is the draw. The hired staff are very nice and helpful for the most part but seem to fear the Boss's.

The showers facilities are in need of an overall and renovation. Clean for the most part. Laundry machines hardly work.

We have met some great people vacationing there over the time we have spent here Although ... the reoccurring discussion this year among many is how rude and unaccommodating the owners are. If you don't mind being spoken to in a condescending manner by the manager and owners as if you"re a five year old and worried about which rule of their "many" that you might be breaking then you might accept the location.

The list of rules would be shorter of what you Can do - opposed to what you Can't do.

They charge for every little thing and act like they are doing you a great service out of the norm. The attitude of the management is unsettling and rude.

They give you EVERY reason to look elsewhere to stay but again... they know they have the convenient spot across from the beach. We camped at South Beach Gardens Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is nice that you are right across the road from the beach. As is typical with many RV parks in this area, it is old and grey. Sites are a bit narrow and limited options if you are over 30'. It only has 30amp, cable TV with about 20 channels (mostly Canadian), and sewer is a bit tough to get connected to as it is surrounded by a 6" concrete barrier. This time of year (late May) the park has a lot of sap and thorns that are constantly getting tracked into the RV. We camped at South Beach Gardens Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here before. This time we received a poor reception from the manager, long lecture and rules about the dog. You can't leave your dog in the RV and of course must poop scoop. Any infraction at all and you will be asked to leave the park. I was disappointed in the poor welcome when we were just arriving. I think people are sick of dogs and bad owners who won't clean up after them and leave them to bark. Our dog was quiet the entire time, but a drunk man in a van pulled in, passed out and left his radio on loud until I finally had to get the manager to reach in and turn off the engine as I wanted to get some sleep. There are droppings from trees that stick to your shoes and come into your rig. We will return but I frankly wish we had had a better reception. We camped at South Beach Gardens Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Only part of this campground was open this early in the season (June 7-9) so we were in a non-big rig site. That said, it was long and wide enough for our 4-slide, 40' RV; the tow car was parked across the front. The park appears to be well-maintained and clean; we don't use their restrooms or showers. We had a quiet stay except for traffic noises; no children in the park during this time. We had 30amp service, no WiFi, and Verizon cell coverage. We camped at South Beach Gardens Campground in a Motorhome.

We stumbled across this campground quite by accident. Nice large sites, friendly staff, very very clean, and tidy. A tad noisy as next to the highway but for in town camping not bad. Pleasant walking around the campground. Very dog friendly. We camped at South Beach Gardens Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We came here in the off season. This campground is right across from a nice beach on the lake. Good interior roads and level sites. Part of the campground, area A has cable, but channels are not extensive. You can purchase WiFi on a per day or weekly basis and this WiFi is not Tengointernet and has a very good connection. The facilities are old but clean. The children's park needs some work. This park is probably similar in the summer to all the RV parks in Penticton: crowded, noisy and people packed in like sardines but I can highly recommend it during the off season. Their off season is short, so call for dates that it is open. The park is located right on a busy street so try to get a site near the interior of the park. We will return. We camped at South Beach Gardens Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Very kid friendly. Don't expect peace and quiet during the day. Rules are enforced and there are a number. Follow the "common sense" rules and you will have a great stay. Wonderful "kid friendly" beach/lake a short walk across the road. Shade trees are abundant. The RV section is tightly packed. Expect to get to know your neighbor. Reservations are a must. Check the URL for rules and expectations. Plenty of activities for all ages near by. The bathrooms are a bit dated but clean. The roads and pads are NOT paved. Small bit of grass and gravel in the A section. The rest appeared to be all grass. We would stay here again (only when entertaining grand kids). We camped at South Beach Gardens Campground in a Motorhome.
