We found this campground by simply drinking around. It is very clean with great showers and the hosts were immensely helpful. All sites are reservable so if you are just cruising by you need a bit of luck to get a site. We were lucky...More

Minutes from Nakusp, right on the lake, huge Camp/RV sites, clean and quiet, now have running water and showers, but can get really booked up in the summer, reserve ahead!

Every year we stop here for a picnic along the shores of the lake. The picnic area is clean and well maintained. There is a great play area for kids. The washroom facilities are fairly new and well maintained.

The sites on the water are serene and beautiful most of them offer full sun in the afternoon which makes a big difference in the heat of the summer. There are private walks down to the water and sandy beaches. Really nice family atmosphere not...More

Great campsites, forested, next to lake. Convenient location close to amenities in Nakusp. Recommend visiting in late May, early June, late September, early October when it's more serene and you can really appreciate and hear the beauty of nature.

I would highly recommend reserving a site earlier in the year for sure, it gets very busy in July and August with most of the larger waterside spots taken in advance.
