This spot is a beautiful 14 acre gem on the Thompson River. Tammy, the owner, is amazing! She provides the absolute best in Customer Service. It is as though you are visiting an old friend.

We stayed in a tent cabin which is located on the beautiful Thompson river bank and we really enjoy the evening sitting outside and watching the sunset. But all the good parts ended there and the bad started when we were ready to go to bed: The old comforter had stains and holes on it, and the mattress was saggy...

This lovely little hide away down by the river, was a refreshing and quiet. Being from the city of Edmonton, I enjoyed the rustic, peace filled experience so much! So amazing that this perfect little spot was so close to my hometown! I enjoyed the convenience of having a cozy home away from home. Tammy has created a warm and...

We stayed here as a family of 5. Half in a glamping tent and half in a prospector cabin for one night. After staying in hotels for the past fortnight we wanted to experience something a bit different and more personal. The campsite is set in the most amazing position right on the Thompson river. It has its own private...

We loved our short stay here and wished we had more time to spend. The owner was kind and accommodating even though we showed up unexpectedly and very late. The beach setting was amazing to wake up to and we even enjoyed the sound of the frequent trains in the country. The availability of clean, potable water was very nice....

Our camping/glamping family reunion was a great tiime at the R&RR. We had guests from Barcelona who were in constant awe at the space, the fish jumping in the river and the scenic trains and farms of the area. We prepared meals on the BBQ's provided. Washrooms are a short walk to the outhouse and there's a solar shower. There...

We have been several times in the last few weeks to Tammy's place. First thing to not you are unlikely Anywhere else right on the river camping places. I love the new Solar shower and outhouse.
