We stayed for 3 nights in a full service site. We were only a short 50 yards from the lake. Since we were almost the furthest away from the office, the WiFi was non-existent, but the owner was up front with that information. This was his and his family's first season as owners and we can't say enough about his friendly, helpful attitude. He takes the time to help each new camper get settled into their site. We know that in time things like the WiFi will get better. On a side note, we had reserved and paid for 4 nights but left one day early. He kindly offered to refund the last night if he was able to rent the site and rent it he did and the refund was made. Now that is Great Customer Service. We will be back. We camped at Swan Lake Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is in a wonderful location, just outside Vernon, right on the lake. But it's older, quite small, and funky. The spaces are very tight, too close together, not well looked after, and ours wasn't close to level. The washrooms & showers were old and minimally clean. Wifi was iffy. No cable. The new owners are friendly, pleasant, and seem energetic -- hopefully they'll get the place standing tall soon. They have some watercraft available for guest use for free and rent paddleboards. All sites had fire rings, which, when the sites only have inches between them, can present problems for people who can't tolerate smoke. The location is excellent, the park (right now) is not. We camped at Swan Lake Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

New owners. Check in was quick and easy. Rules are pretty standard and everyone behaved while we were here (including over a long weekend). We arrived a day early and the owners did very well accommodating us. The temp site was a little on the small side and not so level but they did fit us in. Our stay was very enjoyable. The park is located off of a secondary highway. It was quiet except for the odd loud motorcycle that went roaring by. There is a train that goes by but not every day across the valley. You can barely hear it. There is a Rooster that crows not too far away. We found the sound pleasant. There appears to 8 - 10 permanents but for the most part they are newer units and no junky yards. Pet friendly and everyone appeared to be cleaning up after them. There are Pull Throughs but they are very short. Back-ins will accommodate almost anything. As stated earlier, not all are level but not all that bad either. All services worked well including the Wifi. Cable TV is available but you will have to contract directly with the provider (Shaw Cable - minimum 1 month). Over the air stations are available and conditions are good for Satellite too. Good cell service as reasonably close to the city of Vernon. We paid $43.00 including taxes and will be back again. We camped at Swan Lake Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

There are no facilities within walking distance but all services are only 10 minutes away. Large shopping center straight south on the highway (Safeway etc)

Smallish park with maybe 20 resident and 10 transient sites, some within yards of the lake. There is a very friendly host and we liked chatting to him. Despite having a cat fall on our van from a great height (what a bang!) we enjoyed it here - certainly more than the cat - and would happily return. We camped at Swan Lake Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground was beautiful. Very friendly staff. They walked around the campground talking to everyone and making sure that everyone had everything that they needed. They even delivered your firewood right to your site. Beautiful sites right on the water. Huge weeping willow trees. Free peddle boat and canoe's. The lake had some weeds but people were swimming in it all day. This was a very relaxed place. Nothing uptight about this campground. Completely pet friendly! We had a great time!
