Description

A small pine-dotted camping area by the Similkameen River. Anglers like to try their luck from the rock-covered shoreline. This park offers 28 vehicle accessible campsites, including one pull-through site. Campsite reservations are accepted and first-come, first-served sites are available. The small sites are located on two levels overlooking the Similkameen River amidst mature Douglas fir and Ponderosa pine trees that shade most of the sites. The sites on the upper level are more open, those closer to the river more treed. Campers can self-register if there are no staff present by depositing their fee in the self-registration vault beside the information shelter at the entrance to the park. There is no phone in the park. Hedley is the closest store and Princeton has the nearest hospital, fire, ambulance and police services. This park only has pit toilets no flush toilets. There is one hand pump for water located near the info shelter. The park gate is open from April the end of Sept. Gate is closed during the off-season. Park users can still walk into the park if conditions such as weather permit. While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings.
