  • We camped in a double site for five nights. The campsites are very shaded so you don't get a lot of sun which is good and bad. The lake is a few minutes walk away, as is true for all provincial parks....  more »

  • The campsite are very private and really, really nice and clean. They have free hot showers, extremely well kept for a provincial camp site! Lovely atmosphere with kids riding their bikes around. Cons would be the beach itself is extremely rocky and not very enjoyable. We also wished there were more bathrooms throughout the park. We ended up quite far away from them as well as the beach.
  • Another great BC campsite. Clean and tidy. The camp hosts make a point of greeting everyone. A bit of a trek to the beach though.
  • Absolutely lovely campground, super clean and well maintained. Hot showers and clean bathrooms along with a beautiful beach and mountain views
  • Pristine campsites that are a decent space from the others. Feels quite private. Close to a beach. A great place to camp.
  • Had a great weekend with a group of friends. Was disappointed in the very wet wood being sold at a higher cost than "market" value just down the road and the lack of any maintenance of one of the women's bathrooms. The washroom went a whole day on a long weekend without being tended to and eventually was out of paper towel (2 dispensers) and soap. Considering the number of staff who were collecting bottles - one could have been assigned to maintain the washroom.
