This is a very pretty campground, and we were able to secure a wonderful site overlooking the lake. There is a sign warning that the winds can come up quickly and be quite strong; we certainly found that to be true. The campground attendant will come around and collect the fee and sell firewood if you desire. The sites are large, level, and well-separated with some vegetation to provide privacy. There are water taps but with a boil-water warning. There is no dump station, so it is best to arrive with full tanks and plan on hauling out your waste water. The attendant told us about a dump station not very far away, but we did not use it as we were headed toward the U.S. and the dump was in the opposite direction. It is best to arrive early as, even off season, the campground filled and people were camping in the overflow area. Our Verizon cell phone worked well and even picked up a signal from a U.S. tower, so we were able to use data without an international charge! We were also able to find a site with Satellite access, although this would be possible in only a few sites. We would stay in this park again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This Provincial Park is set on a long thin spit of land that juts out into Lake Osoyoos. It's a very scenic and popular park and even on the last day of September we just managed to snag one of the last available spots when we pulled in. Late arrivals were out of luck. Many of the sites are lake side sites with gorgeous views of Lake Osoyoos, the surrounding hills and the city of Osoyoos in the distance. There is a day use area and an off leash dog area along one section of the shoreline. There's also a lovely nature walk through a marsh area that shouldn't be missed. Swimming, fishing and boating are all popular pastimes here. The sites themselves are spacious and fairly private with picnic tables and fire pits. Mature willows and pine trees provide shade. I would give this park a higher rating, maybe a 9 or even a 10, if only it had better services, especially considering the $30 fee. There are no hook-ups, no showers and no dump station. The water faucets had "boil for two minutes" warning signs on them. I think this would be a very noisy and crowded campground in the summer, but our stay here at the end of September was quiet and peaceful. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
