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. We camped at Kettle River Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You can launch a canoe, kayak, or tube at the park and head downriver towards Rock Creek. Take your bike along the Trans Canada Trail which extends on the former railway bed west towards Penticton and east to Castlegar.

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.) We camped at Kettle River Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Kettle River Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.
