This is a difficult RV Park to rate. As the name says.."Rustic" is the key word here. There was only one bathroom (outhouse) and one shower that we saw, and only two sites had "full hookups". The sewer hookups on the full service sites have a long neck on them, so that the hose has to do a small uphill run to drain completely, and the water and power lines basically just lay on the ground.
That being said, the owner is very pleasant, and the sites do give you plenty of elbow room, and should stay reasonably clean when rainy, due to the grass cover on most of them. Aside from the train traffic, it was a very quiet spot, well away from the highway.
Very steep (10%) unpaved hill coming into this park, so be cautious coming down the hill, particularly when raining. We would camp here again. - EmmaS

Down in the Valley on the Thompson river this side of Walhachin. What a beautiful place. 14 acres of paradise. No concrete just natural beauty with everything you need. Truly an Oasis in the desert. Highly recommend for all you nature lovers. Cant say enough great things about this unique and postcard pretty place. - canadianRv

This is NOT your typical BC provincial park and we found it to be a bit of a disappointment. It was basically a dirt parking lot with people crammed in together with absolutely no privacy or space between sites. The sites were dirt and looked like they hadn't been raked/cleaned in ages. Also, there was no shade, which was a bummer because it was really HOT during our stay. The showers were clean but really outdated with ancient plumbing and a weird drain/platform that looked like a trip hazard. The camp host/concessionaire was the grumpiest I have ever met in a BC park. Would not stay here again unless I was desperate for an overnight spot. Only some spots have electric hookups and these were all taken, so beware if you really want/need AC. Also, LOTS of train noise ALL NIGHT LONG. This park is nestled between 2 train lines and they like to use their whistles. - gtogrl

We came in here and were pleasantly surprised. The contracted operators are very nice. There is a beach on Kamloops Lake, which the sites overlook, making for a beautiful view. Savona is only 5 minutes away. The Thompson River exits Kamloops Lake at this site, so river fishing is a short walk away. There are shower facilities which were very clean. Keep in mind that only about half the sites have hookups. If you are traveling through the Kamloops ares I would recommend this site. - Fish dude

The park has 2 areas. One area is constructed similar to a provincial park with defined space between sites, the other is adjacent to the lake and is less defined. All sites have tables and a fire pit as well as access to an outhouse. Recreation sites in BC are meant to be rustic! A caretaker is on site during the summer season. The lake is restricted to those fishing with a child under 16 so is not usually very busy. - lrp374

Very nice campsite right on the South Thompson River. Well kept by friendly and helpful camp hosts. The gravel sites were mostly level, and all had power and water. The utility posts were shared between two sites, so driving in may work out better for some. Trains were noisy, but we did get used to them after a few days. Cell service at the sites is spotty at best, but if you walk up to the day use area, reception is much better. It can be a bit noisy in the evenings, with the fishermen telling tall tales, but things do quiet down after ten.
We will stay here again. - EmmaS

Nice little park right next to the fast-flowing Thompson River (don't fall in! - you'd never get out). Great welcome from camp host. We were only one of three transient visitors here. This place is withing 100 yards of tracks for both the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railways and they go all night, but we weren't troubled by them. - visitor to usa

This is different than other BC Provincial parks in that it has water and electric hook-ups at the sites. However, when we visited there, they were having electrical problems and several of the sites with hookups did not have power. We chose a site with electrical, but the system on our RV to protect it from electrical issues kept cutting of the power with the message of reversed polarity, so it seems they have some type of system-wide problem. Even with that issue this is a very nice park situated along the Thompson River. Some of the sites are directly on the river which is very nice. There is a train track on the same side of the river and one across the river, and they are very active. However, even though they are very active tracks, they did not blow their whistle while near the park. We, in fact, enjoyed the trains, but others may find it difficult to sleep. The park is far enough off of the main road, about mile, so that road noise was not an issue. Some of the sites are open enough for satellite. Our Verizon phone got a weak signal, but enough to make a call. As usual at BC parks, there is a $5.00 fee for dumping. We would definitely stay at this park again. - TheJim

On the 'very good' side of campgrounds that are stop overs while on the road. Tiny bit of road and train noise. Very helpful staff/owners. We were in Kamloops area for a wedding and ended up staying 5 days. As others have mentioned, the laundry room is small but we took a chair to sit and read, so no biggie. We were in the spots above the washroom/shower/laundry house so we had electric and sewer and water.
There is a mix of sites, some full services, some primitive.
The high point each day was taking the grand kids to feed the chickens at the north end of the campground. there was plenty for the kids to do, playground, sandbox, climbing equipment, play house, etc.
I would stay again.
Take a carpet/mat because the sites are in the trees and you can track a lot of sticks and gravel into your trailer unless you can leave your shoes outside. (This is normal for us but we see a lot of campers not prepared and they get frustrated. We wouldn't want to stay in a pavement and concrete site but some people expect a site like that, I think.)
I would suggest to the owner to install another washer and dryer if only to earn more income from the laundry.
The dump station was free for everyone.
The serviced sites are set up so that the trailers will be back to back so every other site will have a down hill (west) view or a up hill (east) view.
I think the down hill west view was better. - jxoco

The people are very friendly and helpful. There is a small above ground pool only satisfactory for children. The grounds are immaculate and nicely landscaped in the forest. Highway noise a tad distracting at times. - Vicki Seller

We used this park for a 2 night stay in the Kamloops area. It got better ratings from the parks immediately in Kamloops and from what we can tell the higher marks are right on. There is some train noise but nothing bothersome - and no horns that I can remember. The highway noise is maybe a bit more bothersome but not enough to deter us from going again. The owners are super friendly and very helpful. they get the highest marks one can give. The sites are OK. Room for the biggest rig and privacy enough for the tenters. - TRDAWG

Nice location. No sewer hookups so if you are there for a few days will have to use sani dump, which they have. Only 1 washer and dryer for the entire park. With a few upgrades this would be a great park. - Donny Mackelprang

I had business in the area again, and because I found it convenient before, I decided to give it another whirl. I was pleasantly surprised. The operators have improved the landscaping considerably. They have planted grass, laid sod and added pea gravel to most of the sites. All of the facilities worked well including the Wifi. There is still very little to do right at the park. The river was very high when I was there so access to the bank was very limited. There is a walking trail (atop a levee) but there is signage that says it's private property so use or not at your own risk. As before, we had no problem paying with a credit card. The operators were friendly and check in went quick and easy. If you are looking for a short term stay, and don't need sewer, this park is now a lot more acceptable. We paid $37.00 per night including tax and will now feel we would return. - BC Wanderer

Check in was quick and efficient. I had no problem paying with a credit card. Clear directions were given for the site and the easiest way to park. A code for the WiFi and rest rooms was included with the site map. This park was chosen because of it's proximity to downtown. It is not close walking distance but it is only a 5 - 10 minute drive. There is nothing of interest to a traveler that is within reasonable walking distance except the river, which has a rocky beach. The sites are narrow and a number are long enough to support a 45er. Services are very limited. 30 amp, water, WiFi, and a picnic table only. No sewer (there is a sani dump), no cable (2 over the air local stations available). I could not log on to their Internet but didn't try very hard as I have my own service. Some of the sites looked like they might be more level than others but none were really bad. The surface consists of sparse river rock over a clay base. I'm thinking muddy if it ever rained there. This is a place to park only. Good for overnight or if you have an interest in the Kamloops area. I don't think $35.00 is a fair price for what is offered. I will check out another park when visiting again. - BC Wanderer
