It’s a nice place for a couple nights if you want peace and quiet. There’s no shower facility or beach. There’s 2 levels of campsites you can choose from. We were right off the river so it’s a qauint little place. It’s an hour from...More

This campsite is so lovely. Beautiful location by the river. Commodious sites nicely spaced nestled in the trees. Low key and quiet. We loved our time here. Canada does a wonderful job accommodating travelers. Thanks

This is a really nice campsite on the river and it is well kept by B.C Park operators. Lots of trees and great swimming holes.

Highly recommend stopping for a swim, sandy bottom and beautiful beach with both sun and shade. Great for young kids or experienced swimmers. Also a popular spot to start a tube float.

Little campsites. No showers or flush toilets, fine maybe for a night or two. But not the 4 nights we had planned.

This little Provincial Park campground is very well maintained. The campground contractor keeps the whole place immaculate including the washrooms. Get a spot along the river and you get to go to sleep with the sound of the river. A great stop for a night...More

Tried staying here last September...we were "tenting" as usual but found the sites to be completely impractical for pitching a tent. The pads are hard as concrete and full of sharp rocks, which can easily damage your tent floor. Driving a peg into the ground...More
