  • Campground and day use area, boat launch and beach area ( rocky) the water is so clean and clear beautiful...  more »
  • Wild camping on the heights of the Kalamanka Lake with a splendid view on this one. Well appointed with shower, toilet, but no electricity and water, only at the bottom. Very dry period, wet location giving us a bit of freshness. See any snakes, but I've looked! While walking we heard whistles of Nice marmots. Little Harbor. Location 43 - well shaded and view on the Lake, near the showers and toilets.

  • And we agree! It's stunning! The water changes colour pending on the sunshine, time of day etc. It's crystal blue when the sun is out. Parking is massive so feel free to bring your big truck with the ...  more »

  • This is a great provincial park for camping. Flush toilets and showers were pretty well maintained. Given the close proximity to the highway you would think traffic noise would be an issue but you hardly notice it. Boat traffic in the lake wasn't that loud either (nothing like the noise coming from Cultus Lake). Park was we maintained and the hosts were friendly. If camping I would recommend a spot so your living area is facing North (towards Vernon) so you get some protection from the hot afternoon sun but can enjoy the warmth in the morning. Also, if walking your dog keep an eye on it as there are some cactus like prickle things around as we spent 30 minutes pulling needle from our dogs feet. Rail Trail offers a great walk or bike ride and while the beach is rocky the lake makes for a great swim. We would recommend this spot and will return.
  • Fantastic campground with a great layout. Not many powered spots but thats not a bad thing. Great washrooms/facilities and perfect for boating. Amazing boat launch with tons of vehicle/trailer parking. Can't beat Kal Lake in the summer!
  • Nice campground on a gorgeous lake. Campground is still somewhat new so trees aren't very big yet. But still nice and will only get nicer. Not too much beach either.
  • Arrived at our campsite after a long drive and our entire site is gravel! We begin to set up on the grass on our site (and in the shade) when the manager of the park yelled at us from the top of the hill to take it down, screaming that it was the rule (though as we drove to our site many tents were on the grass!!!!) We were not allowed to set up on the grass it HAD to be on the gravel and huge rocks. We asked if we could be moved as we could not set up on those rocks and they had one small grass site for us. Not only that but we had to park our cars at the bottom of the hill away from our site. This meant lugging our stuff up and down in 35ºC+ weather. NOT IMPRESSED. When we approached the manager and asked for a refund she was very rude and initially refused. We returned the following morning and received only a portion of our money back. I WILL NEVER STAY HERE. Watch out if you're tenting!!!
  • Beaitiful Campground. No reservations, first come first serve and it fills up fast. You see an empty spot, claim it and someone will collect in the evening. Great free showers, great outhouses with flush toilet. Only 4-5 sites have services for RV's. Best to show up around 11. I noticed some claimed their spot on thursday for the weekend. Ideal for those with a boat, best free boat launch I have ever seen and it has free parking for truck and trailers. To top it off, National Geographic rated the Malaka lake as one of the world's top ten lake. This is the best deal around....
