This is a typical Provincial Park, no showers or flush toilets but clean out-houses. It's a small park on the hill at the side of the road. The worst part is the first little bit off the road as you head up into the campground. We had a very good spot, #12, with a partial view of the lake. The lake and the day-use area are on the other side of the road. The park operator was very friendly and informative. - cachencouple

This park has been let go. The resort is comprised of cabins and an RV park on a hill overlooking a nice valley. The RV section needs major work. Many of the electrical boxes are missing, the sites are not maintained, and pretty rough shape. We were assigned site 34 but it was too short for our 35 foot RV so we ended up in site 32. There are no sewer hookups. Sign in was lengthy and we were over charged. The front end clerk didn't know how to refund our visa so she did it with cash. Its a pity they don't upgrade the park, because the location is wonderful. Some money into infrastructure could make this RV park a real gem. - rwberg

This is a small park, with easy access from Hwy 3, (highway noise is not a problem). Positives: the washrooms and $howers are spotless; all sites have fire rings and free firewood; the golf course is right there; the wifi works. Negatives: the sites are very close together; not much grass around (except on the golf course); there's nothing for kids.
There are beautiful pine trees around the campground, but they may or
may not provide shade, depending on which site you are in. We'll come back. The rate is Cdn dollars. - mlbw

Small sites for bigger units, but located right on a nice golf course. Not much for kids to do. We would stay again - tmcc

Basic gravel parking lot for those who want to golf for a few days. We got in too late for that. "Host" seemed annoyed that we got in at dinner time. Has a Good Sam sign but does not give GS discount. Could not get on the Wi-Fi. Some other campers (all Canadians) tried to help but didn't work - fun talking with them though! Would stay here again and get in earlier to play some golf. - Retired FL CSM

Friendly managers, quick check in. Price included tax. Nothing fancy but it is good for the buck. - slvrtrk

This is a fairly small park right on the main road, but also right on the river so that counteracts the traffic noise somewhat. The spaces are wide and mostly level but pretty close together and a big rig with a tow car might have a problem. The restrooms are very dated but clean. The shower stalls are tiny and there is a bench but it's in the common area so no privacy for drying/dressing. At $29 including tax it's over priced for what you get in my opinion, but this is my first time camping in BC so maybe this is typical. With the favorable exchange rate, it's not that bad in US dollars. Next time through, I'd probably try somewhere else, but this place is ok for an overnight. - Pdxjoanne

The staff do a great job in the managing of this municipal campground. Check in is quick and all appropriate info is given at this time. Even though this campground is by the highway it isn't noisy. All the sites are shaded and half the park is by the river. This is one of our favorite places for a quick week end getaway and very reasonable. - slvrtrk

This is a nice park by the river, open April through October. All RV sites have water and electricity (dump station) and are grass covered with a gravel access road. Internet worked well but there’s no over-the-air or cable TV. Manager/owners are friendly and take good care of the place. - JimK

Free camping right on the Similkameen river! Only 6 spots though. You need to be fully self contained, since there are no hookups, no water spigots, and no outhouses. Nice sites, fairly level, and all but one right on the river bank. If you want to go kayaking or canoeing you can start right off your camping spot. The downer is the Highway just across the river, but traffic mostly dies down at night. To get here, leave Hwy 3 into Princeton, take a right turn onto Old Hedley road and drive about 6 km. The sites will be on your right. We will come back. - TheSchweitzers

A nice well kept provincial park site with a nice beach on the north end of Otter lake. The lower score simply reflects the lack of amenities such as showers and dump station. There is a separate day use area at the south end of the lake in Tulameen where supplies such as booze, fuel, limited groceries and camping supplies are available. Access to the Kettle Valley Bike Trail offering hundreds (you read correctly) of kilo's of riding. Would recommend this park for dry camping. - Procarver

Rate shown is for Seniors Off Season. Good signage on highway to park. Self registration when park operator not around, but someone will attend later in the evening. Park road fairly narrow asphalt surface, but one way direction. Some trees close to road, but they are trimmed. All the sites are back-in, except for one pull-thru (#27). Most sites are for small RV units less than 25 ft long. Sites 12, 16, 17, and 19 can handle rigs up to 40 ft (you would still have to unhook your toad at the entrance). Our site (#14) was just big enough for our 28 ft motorhome. Scattered pines throughout the campground between the sites gave some privacy. No power, water, or sewer hookups. Vault toilets and a hand water pump. Sites on two levels, upper close to highway with the inevitable traffic noise and lower above the river (that noise I can handle). Access to the river via fairly steep and short pathways. Well maintained campground. No local TV or radio, only satellite radio. Too many trees on most sites for satellite TV. Good place just to relax and take in the scenery. We would definitely stay here again. - Onemoretrail

Great place to stay for a one or two night stop over. There is a water pump in the park, but it could have a boil water advisory. Wonderful views of Stemwinder Mountain and the Similkameen River. A little close to the highway, but not too much noise from it. - Snoet

I cannot possibly say enough fantastic things about this campground and the owners.
All sites are 30 amp electrical. Some have sewer. If not, free sani dump right in the park! Some river view sites. Pet friendly - must be on a leash though and you must pick up after your dog - it's a respectful rule!
For kids - giant chess board, horseshoes, playground, safe campground, river for fishing, swimming, gold panning. Hike trails around the campground. Lots to do in Hedley, BC - tour Mascot Mines, museum, market or float the river!
Campsite - Approx 24 campsites, 4 rustic cabins to rent (with beautiful decks and views of the river)and also a newer RV for rent! Shower house. $1 for a 5 minute shower. Flush toilets, store with ice, candy and a few things you may have forgot.
Cell service, town in 5 minutes away and sells liquor and anything else you need.
Summer kitchen for family gatherings and potluck dinners. Laundrymat on site. Fresh coffee on every morning for campers! Wood is per wheelbarrow and SO CHEAP compared to a tiny 4 piece plastic wrapped bundle you get from provincial parks.
Now... about the owners. Amazing people. The nicest camp hosts you will ever meet. They check on all of their guests to make sure they have what they need and are having a good time. They host 4 theme weekends a year where they do NOT raise the prices of the campsites but instead provide games, prizes, food and other perks to all campers. IE: Western Theme, Mardis Gras, Mexican Fiesta, Christmas in July, Wine and Pasta Competition. These are most definitely the best weekends to book to maximize your fun!
I would highly recommend this campground for family reunions and weddings, large birthday gatherings or just get togethers.
This is 1 hour from Penticton/Osoyoos. 3.5 hours from Vancouver. It's the perfect distance to get-away for a weekend.
This campground is beautifully manicured with big trees to shade you and spots to bask in the sun. It is SUPER clean. - Smoresinsmalltowns

We loved our 2-night stopover here. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The park was quiet and clean. We would definitely stop here again if travelling through that area. - User3203

This park has new owners who have little experience dealing with the public. As a result, many strange happenings during our three night visit including evictions of one neighbour (at 10:30 PM) because he let his little dog follow him to the shower house and another neighbour who let their two dogs following them down to the river. In each case the dogs were not making a noise or mess. The owner is very concerned about his grass and with the sites being extremely small and crowded together it is impossible to park your RV without traveling on the grass. That's when you get a scolding and later the owner tells your neigbours that you are a problem tenant. The park advertises full hookups but you are not told there is no sewer in the river side sites. Later, when you go to dump your tanks you are scolded for using too much sewer capacity and too much water. This is on top of a dump that that is on a side hill and slopes away from the drain. Overall, the tension and stress here is too much. We will not stay at this park again. - Living Skies

New owners Shirley and Cameron have been fulltimers for many years and know what people want in a park, and are working very hard to provide good services. The park is very clean, tidy and well maintained, we saw Cameron out working at 7am every day. Internet at our site was excellent. Cable TV was not up and running yet, but will be soon.
This is an older park so the sites are a little tight for our big rig (40 ft with 3 slides) but they have a few pull thrus which can accommodate us.
We stayed here over Easter weekend and will return. - Rapata

One of the cleanest and best maintained parks we have been in. Friendly staff on hand all day, will even park your rig for you. Lovely beach area next to crystal clear river, plenty of shade, excellent WiFi. Peaceful and relaxing location. We will certainly stay here again. - Codliveroil
