We arranged to stay here with friends of ours after another campground didn't honor our reservation. Christina Pines was able to accommodate us and put both of our sites close to one another. They explained that although we were staying 4 nights we had to pay for the 5th night as it was the last of a long weekend. It was our only option so we agreed and felt that at least we wouldn't have to rush out prior to the checkout time on the final day. This park is extremely crowded. They had a trailer parked for the season that they said we could park our vehicles at as the owner wouldn't be there. That lasted an hour as they booked a motor home into that site. Everyone stopped to stare at the class A squeezed in front of the travel trailer at its picnic spot. Crazy! There was zero privacy. Our picnic table faced the street and sitting there we could see at least 10 other camp sites. Due to the number of people there was constant noise - cars pulling in/out, dogs barking, people doing things. Nothing excessive, just regular camping activities. At night it was so so quiet!! We couldn't believe it!! It's a 15 minute walk to the provincial day use beach area. The lake is warm and lovely. There is a nice pool at the campground. We only used it once though as it's only 6' deep and they are very strict about not allowing children to jump in. The hosts were very friendly. The WiFi only works at the pool, not at the sites. Once we left the last day they had that double parked motor home in our spot (our friends were still there so they saw him pull in). No mention to us about refunding the extra night they made us pay for. And our friends were being watched from the office as they had another party waiting for them to leave at 2pm so they could take their spot. I guess everyone is lucky we didn't decide to stay the night we paid for! No refund for us - they took 2 payments for our spots. Disappointing business practice. We will not be back.
This park is located in the town's park. It is a 5 minute walk to the public beach. There is an arena, skateboard park, and fields attached. The camping area is treed but the sites are still semi-open to the street and each other. There is plenty to keep children entertained and the beach is beautiful! There are 10 sites with power at the perimeter near the street. All others have no hookups. The shower was free, hot water abundant but not that clean in my opinion. The price is reasonable. There is a dump station near the entrance.
Typical BC provincial park campground. Sites closer to the lake seemed to have more privacy between sites. We stayed in a 36' motorhome and quite a few would accommodate us and a car. There's a playground, and some nice trails to walk along. The swimming area is located in the day use section and is a good 5 minute walk. It's sandy and roped off. This lake doesn't allow any boat motors.
We stayed at Entrance Bay campground in Cultus Lake Prov Park. The double site we shared with friends was large enough to accommodate our 36' RV and their tent trailer. We did see and speak with a man who had reserved a site that was supposed to fit his big toy hauler and didn't. He was trying to find another he could fit in. The turns in this campground are tight. The washrooms are fairly clean and the shower is free, has excellent pressure and lots of hot water. Across the road is the lake and day use area with a boat launch, picnic tables, grassy areas, roped swimming area. The downside was the amount of Canadian Geese and their droppings. Rangers were very friendly and had ice and wood for sale.
