#: 421897248 We were cabin hunting in the area and previously stayed at Ponderosa with our RV in August. We found the service and overall caring of the owner ( older German couple)to be rude and just dry but didn't make a deal of it as we were in our RV doing our own things. We came back there yesterday... More

The site is fairly nice, we stayed with a large group. The main Down side for us was dogs have to be on a leash at all times. No dog beach or area. If you can try to get a spot on the water. Other campsites were not aloud open fires.

We stayed 4 nights in a tent in one of the lakeside sites. The view was nice but unfortunately that was really all we enjoyed. When we got there we were told that we share power and water with another site which I would have been fine with but the hook ups were right in our site. It would have... More

Although the trailer slots were average size they are right on the beach! Power and water were easily accessible. Washrooms were very clean and numerous cans in easy reach for garbage. Although weather has been poor the lake was reasonably warm clean and clean. Fire rings and kids play park are a nice bonus. Owners are friendly and work hard... More

What a wonderful place to stay! We stayed in one of the treed campsites just off the water. The place is very peaceful and a great place if you're looking for clean water and great weather and the feeling of being in the woods. Friends of ours stayed in the cabin and it's definitely older and rustic but had everything... More

We stayed in one of the condos and it was great! It is an older resort and is starting to show however the whole establishment is great for families or in our case a local sports event! The owners are friendly and courteous. The atmosphere is pleasant and the scenery is beautiful! Will stay again if in the area!

My wife and I just spent 9 days camped at the Ponderosa Resort at Canim Lake. We had a lake front stall with power, water, fire pit and picnic table. It is one of the most beautiful resorts we have ever camped at. The grounds, bathrooms and showers are kept constantly clean. My wife and I both love to fish... More

We met friends from southern BC there and were able to camp next to each other. A very quiet and friendly place to camp. We loved fishing the lake and watching the sunsets. We were there before the summer rush and would recommend that as a good time to visit.

It may be okay for tents or trailers but do not get sucked into renting the Cabbin. We rented the Cabbin and were told on two separate occasions that it was on the lake with WIFI but when we got there we found out that their idea of on the water was behind all the trailers with a narrow strip...

“RV site 19 is closest to the motel in case you are staying with folks in the motel. Upper floor in the motel is quietest but there is a steep staircase to get there. Cabin 2 is the best value and largest size but is located at the south end of the resort.”
