23 Parks near Rock Creek, British Columbia

The park has only 8 sites with 30 amp power and water but even though it's located on a very large grassy field, the sites were quite close together. It is situated far enough off Hwy 3 to not hear road noise. The host was very accommodating and was pleased to answer any questions. The sites are back-in with no length restriction. Our site featured a lovely view of the golf course to the rear (but not so close that you have to worry about errant golf balls). The park has a dump station which was easily accessible. There is a playground for the kids and two horseshoe pitches. - HowieS82

Beautiful setting east of Rock Creek, with a driving range on site and a golf course just over the fence. We were able to back our 65 foot motorhome w/trailer into a beautiful grassy site. Ponderosa pines provided shade in the late afternoon. No dump, which is unfortunate, but a very accommodating owner/manager who just opened 2 months prior to our stay, and is working VERY hard to make this a great place. If you're a bicycling enthusiast, as we are, the 30 mile round trip ride along Hwy 3 to Greenwood is lovely. Highly recommend you give this park a try. - Beaver Gypsies

This is a nice campground in Rock Creek, BC. Most of the sites are rented as seasonal sites, but this doesn't take away from the overall experience. Unfortunately there are not that many daily sites available when there is an event on in town. The sites offer full hookups with 30 amp power. Unfortunately the sites are narrow and you do get highway noise on the front row. There is lots of grassy areas and fire pits are available along the river. There is a nice golf course directly across the highway. The staff are freindly and the washrooms and showers are clean. There is a small store onsite. - Camper_Guy

There are level pull through site. Some road noise but OK for sleeping. Beautiful clean showers and laundry. Well kept grounds. There are some issues with Wi-Fi provider, but found an unsecured site. Friendly full timers. Great overnight stop. Would stay here again. - Tonyl

Although it was very hot, we had a back-in site with some shade. We had plenty of width to deploy our awning and were able to use a very well equipped laundry and super-clean showers. The proprietors were very friendly and answered our questions on where to find things. One of the groundsmen was helpful in making an "I" beam out of 2 X 4s for my husband in order to support our bedroom slide-in. (We had support rail problems during travel mode.) We thanked him with a present and we sat and socialized for awhile. Very nice, neat, clean, friendly place! - rvtraveler61

As previous reviewer said, this campground was spared major forest fire damage last year, although the reminders are all around. It's a beautiful spot on the Kettle River, and the staff we met were all pleasant and helpful. There is one large restroom with dishwashing area, flush toilets and showers, as well as several pit toilets, a kids' play area and the Trans Canada Trail runs right beside it. The restrooms are clean, although we had different experiences with hot water, convenience, etc. Our big complaint is that we made a reservation and were severely overcharged -- as well as the overnight fee, they charged us for our RV and for our toad, for an additional $12 per night. The only way to get a refund is through the onsite ranger (which we were able to do, but we would have been out of luck if we'd waited till we got home). Also, they charge you a $6 reservation fee PER NIGHT (maximum $18), which we haven't encountered anywhere else. And they charge for dumping even when you're paying overnight fees. If you make a reservation, look carefully at what you're paying for before you give them your credit card info. I think we'll try a commercial site next time where you get more bang for your buck and can still enjoy the great outdoors. (Rate is in Canadian dollars.) - mlbw

Rate shown is for resident senior off season and includes reservation fee. This campground was closed last September due to a wildfire that destroyed some of the park. After restoring the burned out campsites (less than 10 I believe) and cutting down damaged trees, the park was re-opened earlier this month. The section down by the river where we stayed was unaffected by the fire. Our site was a large, level, gravel back-in with lots of privacy due to the surrounding forest. Due to a few sloughs in our section there were mosquitoes. The more open sections further from the river shouldn't be as buggy. It included a picnic table and fire ring. No hookups at this park. Water available at the two island dump station and several locations around the campground loops. Pit and flush toilets are located throughout the park. Plenty of trails including the Trans Canada Trail (which used to be the Kettle Valley Railway). Along the river is a small beach. We saw several people fly fishing there as well. The playground has a series of bike ramps that have sand which got tracked into the restrooms, but the toilets and showers were still clean. We enjoyed our stay at this park and wouldn't hesitate to come back again. - Onemoretrail

A very nice Provincial campsite. Rustic. Divided into 2 section, 1 along the Kettle River – very private sites, reservations only – and the other in a more open, arid area with large pine trees, non-reservations only. Picnic table & fire pits at each site and wood can be purchased from the camp host. Lots of hiking & biking trails with swimming, rafting & fishing in the river. Central water, no showers, pit toilets, sewer dump ($2). A very popular campsite. $19 per night, $6.50 reservation fee for the first 3 nights. - Retired Papa

This RV site is in very poor repair. It was originaly designed for Class A, and is completely backwards for travel trailers. The patio decks are rotting out and the nails need to be driven back in, some have holes that they've filled with rocks. If more than two units run A/C breakers all kick off. Their water system has a major problem, pressure was good until 9pm and then dropped off to trickle. At 7 am the situation was still there, so I checked my supply line and it was fine. I then checked my filters. They were packed with dirt!! I checked with a neighboring camper that had been there for a few days and he said all the above situations were a constant. We had been booked for four days, stayed only the one night and had our remaining money returned. Never to return. Web site is very deceiving. - slvrtrk

Little has changed since our last stay in 2012. A 1.5 km gravel road leads downhill to the ranch, the campground is about 100 meters further. Well maintained sites and hookups. Some is true for the washrooms. A little dated but clean. Best improvement is a trail from the campsites along the beautiful playground to a paved area behind the ranch, where two lounger chairs and a table are set up to relax and use the free Wi-Fi. At the sites you would need a strong antenna booster to catch it. Very quiet and secluded setting. Horses roaming around and nice views. Also it cools down at night up here compared to the heat down in Osoyoos. We will be back again. - TheSchweitzers

After a warm welcome, we were free to pick our site and went for the best views. It is a very quiet place with lots of nature around. For kids they have a lovely playground. The site was level with a nice picnic bench and a parasol on a wooden deck. The Wi-Fi was average. We enjoyed the solitude very much and would stay here again. - TheSchweitzers

The advertised Wi-Fi only works at the office...the owners don't care about the renters services. Laundry will cost you $6 a load, TV will cost $25 a week extra and there is no pool. The beach was nice and the park was clean. - Polyian

The campsites are spread across a hillside, so there are retaining walls, etc. Each site is paved (pavers) or gravel with a patch of grass and some little trees that separate each site. (The online photos are a few years old -- the separator trees are all 8 to 10 feet tall now.) The park is attractive, well maintained, with a pleasant staff. It is located well off the main road. My one real complaint is that the person who checked me in did not warn me that the showers required putting (Canadian!!) quarters into a meter to get water. This lack of warning is particularly annoying as we discussed locating our campsite near the showers and I even commented that the shower in our tiny van-camper was not very satisfactory. Folks, this is a border town and we were spending our last night in Canada. I had gotten rid of almost all the Canadian coins I'd had. (Only 2 dimes left.) It was a shock to discover that an additional payment was required - downgrade from "good" to "average" for this. (Such fees/meters are common in areas with tight water supplies and otherwise don't bother me.) - Pete_by_the_river

This is mostly a ownership park and they rent out the sites that are available. We were given a "large" site for our 38' MH but we just barely fit, so not sure how anything longer would get in here. Roads are very narrow as well (took more time to back into a slot than most public parks with lots of trees). Our utilities are also on the wrong side (would have been better to pull in but roads are marked one way). Sites are mostly concrete pads, few have a bit of grass.
Wi-fi does not work well at all, most of the time you cannot get connected to the service provider to get authorized and when you do it is very very slow. Nice private beach area, and the park is quiet but there seems to be a lot of smokers here and they smoke outside. Utilities work well and park is very clean. - sheltieRV

I have similarly reviewed this park in the past, the office staff is even worse now than it was 4 years ago. They really don't care about customer complaints, sites are often double booked. Long term stay(1 month) is supposed to get preference over shorter stays. I book 1 year in advance and still I am expected to stay in one site until the people in my preferred site have moved on after staying for 2 or 3 nights. Why aren't these short stays put into the site that I had to occupy for the same 2 or 3 nights so I can go straight into the site I booked for 1 month. The pool is supposed to be open from the beginning of Sep. till the end of June. We were given 3 different excuses as to why it was not open when we arrived on Sep.9. At least if they are going to lie, they should get together and tell the same lie. Apparently they used the same stories back in June when friends were here. They are the only game in town so they can get away with whatever they want. I hate to admit it but I will likely be back next year unless I can find somewhere else close. If the facilities were managed and maintained better, this could be a very nice park. - dajracer

Large park with 350 sites. We stayed for 3 days and were put in an "open" row with no vegetation between the sites. For $48Cdn the first night and $35 the other two nights (rates changed Sep 9), we expected more - perhaps we've been spoiled at other parks.
Sites on the upper part of the park have conifers between the sites, so maybe we were just unlucky (or not big enough - our TT is 20').
The "premium" sites on the lake were not something we would want. Sites are tight and with more than one vehicle at some sites, area looked like a used car parking lot.
Overall park is quiet at night but during the day between barking, yappy dogs, pre-school kiddies, and large groups of people chatting incessantly, it is quite noisy. I know, a good time to go sightseeing.
Wifi is now included in rate and has been quite good at all times of the day.
Our site has a cable outlet but I didn't try it so I don't know whether park still offers cable or not.
We didn't use the washrooms or the laundry so cannot comment on those.
Park has posted 10 kmh speed limit but it is not enforced. Some people speed even tho there are speed bumps. An accident waiting to happen!
We'd probably stay here again but be more selective in the site we were assigned. - DCM/JMB

Campground is very crowded. Every available inch of waterfront is used. Staff is indifferent and appear to care less about providing service. The sites are not raked/ cleaned between reservations. To park our RV we had to have both neighbors move their tow vehicles. - RV 47

Quite loud and crowded. Sites are very close together so there is not much privacy. There were no sewer hook ups or sani dump available so we had to watch our tanks carefully . They will have your RV pumped out for a fee. - frdfan

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very clean restrooms.
Was very disappointed that we went to the park host 3 times during the day, but nobody ever came out.
We have stayed at many parks where the hosts would always walk around talking to people and was available. - BGoose

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. - Rib

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. - Onemoretrail

This is a lovely campground, with a developed swimming beach on an alpine lake. A hidden gem. - ravens3

Camping fees are now $26 for dry camping, no water, elect or sewer. $33 for W & E sites. Dump station is $5 if you don't pay for a camping site. Nice grass. Mostly back-in sites. There are a few pull-thrus. We didn't actually stay, but I did walk through the park to update this report, since there has not been an update since 2014. We parked in the gravel lot at Prince's Grocery since we just wanted a place to park overnight. - A-S_Travels

We stayed here while making a day trip into Canada. There is a very good swimming area on the park beach. Our rate was for a non-hookup site. The sites are gravel with grass on all sides. - S_CAMPY

Great place to stay. Grassy and spacious tent-sites in a beautiful surrounding. Clean restrooms, hot showers. Very good, taken care off. Would stay here again! - lyan
