Free solid WiFi, free cable (not so good). Gravel pull thrus and backins, a little bit of grass. Good utilities and very helpfull friendly staff. Downside: lots of noise off the highway and the trains.... This park is definitely overpriced but good for a night or two. Be sure to visit the Wildlife Park - within walking distance, all rescued animals. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Ditto on everything posted by other reviewers; however, trains are even worse than described. Not only can you hear them all night long, but you can feel them as well. Camped near the office. WiFi worked very well. Laundry was clean with two washers and two dryers. This campground is OK for an overnight, but next time we will look for another campground with less noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The site was long enough for our 45' plus Jeep but very narrow for 4 slides. We were right up against the picnic tables on both sides. Roads are wide and sites are level. Good 50 amps. It would get a higher rating if there were grass on the lots. There is only weeds and they desperately need to be cut down. Good location for visiting Kamloops. We did not use any of their facilities nor did we visit the wildlife park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are level but rather close. Our neighbors awning almost touches our window awning. Road and train noise but did not notice either at night. Close to city and shopping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Right off the Hwy 5. Easy egress to and from Hwy. Sites are adequate in size for a 40' MH. Cable, WiFi and tower are well placed. Gravel roadway and site locations. Best part is the next door neighbor to the RV Park is an Exotic Wildlife Park. A must go to. The Hwy noise isn't bad. We just stayed there one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park staff were friendly and helpful though the office closed at four in the afternoon, so get your ice early if you need it. A fairly well designed park that makes good use of all available space, we had a pull through site which was angled nicely to allow an easy entry into the site. My only complaint is that the sites are oriented so that you get the afternoon sun on the side of the trailer where the awning is, which makes it very hot. Sites were pretty level, only requiring a couple of fence boards on one side. All the roads and sites are gravel, so expect some dust. The mainlines for CP and CN Rail are right across the highway, but I only heard them a couple of times so was not an issue. Having the zoo next door was great as the grandson really enjoyed it. Overall, enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a good close to highway park, easy on, easy off. As has been noted, the sites and most of the roads are gravel, but they were smooth. The office staff were pleasant when we made the reservation and when we checked in. The rate shown is with a Good Sam discount. There is both highway and railway noise, but it wasn't bad enough to keep us awake. The Wi-Fi is one of the best we have encountered. We stopped here for two nights on our way to Jasper National Park (NP). Kamloops is a big town with plenty of shopping so it's a great place to stock up at after crossing the border. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very casual. Nothing flash but all facilities worked. Negative is that there is a rail track a few hundred meters away, and trains seemed to run all night. We all seemed to sleep through it though. Everybody at this site were very friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is for pull through. Sites are very narrow. Park is well kept except the grass in doggie area is not cut. A little pricey but convenient. Internet from site 9 was strong. Friendly staff. Above average but not great campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campsite was clean and the staff friendly, but the sites were very narrow. When I put my awning out, I was 1 foot away from the next trailer. The picnic table was in front of our door, but when the next trailer went to the side of theirs, they almost had to step on the seat of the picnic table and there was no fire pit. There was a railway track across the highway, and for some reason we heard it as if we were next to us and we also felt the vibration every time one passed. We would not come here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a busy, crowded, older park that can accommodate large units but may require patience while the narrow interior roads are negotiated. Staff was friendly, utilities were good, restrooms were old and somewhat clean. The rate reflects the Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a decent older campground next door to a wildlife park. We were here just one night and didn't unhitch, but the site was level and long enough for the tow vehicle and 5'er. Some trees need to be trimmed where they hang a bit low over the roadways. Terrific cable TV and decent Wi-Fi. We were in a site closest to the highway, so traffic noise was noticable. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Under new management and things are being done to improve the park. Small patio pads. Stayed for a month. Not a great place to stay but overall not bad. All sites and roads are gravel. Picnic tables not out yet, only two washers and dryers, work OK. Friendly staff. As an overnight park is great. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Complete dust bowl. In fact the dust is so bad that it is like thick fog and I had trouble seeing through it on my way back to my site when walking back from the office. No way you could sit outside in the dust. This campground is right on the busiest highway in Canada and also borders busy train tracks. It is in a good location for a one night stay if you are just traveling through but their lack of pavement makes it un-bearable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not impressed. We stayed for one month for my husband's employment. The laundry facilities were clean but damaged bedding - the management refused to acknowledge or reimburse. The sites are dirt and weed choked. They are not maintained at all. The picnic table was old and rickety - we didn't use it at all. The sites are very close together and other campers are continuously passing through to get to the wildlife park. The staff are very friendly - the grounds are well kept. This place is a gold mine as it's the only campground in town with full hook-ups - if it was better taken care of they'd get a better review from me. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park during April, May and part of June. They have brand new Maytag washers and dryers this year: wonderful! The wash rooms are older but very clean. The park host was picking up and cleaning all the time: she is a very nice and friendly person. The sites are rustic but nice and wide. You can fit rigs with slides here, there is lots of room for class A motorhomes with tows. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. If you have any question they will do their best to find the answer. I have seen the office lady phone other campground for a traveler to make future reservations for them. Not may RV Parks will do that. The office area is clean and tidy with flower pots everywhere. The BC Wildlife park is within walking distance and you can come and go all day long on the day you purchase your ticket. It is great for families with young kids. It is worth the money to see. I would recommend this campground to anyone traveling around the Kamloops area. You will love your stay. Alway smile and have a great day! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a family campground and is used by many overnighters. Many sites are wide enough and long enough for big rigs. Everything was working properly, including the sewer system which has just been repaired. They have free WiFi and it has a good signal. The gravel roads are dusty. The restrooms were not very clean due to the many kids in the park when we visited. We could hear the train at night. Management was friendly and accommodating. They gave 2 for 1 coupons for the wildlife park and that was worth a visit. We didn't see many other RV park options near Kamloops except at Knutsford, and this park has smaller sites and had a "boil your water" notice up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a week in early May. This park that had problems with its water supply, and sits next to a large hill which makes satellite TV difficult. The staff were friendly and the campground was clean. The sites are dirt and probably would get messy in the rain. I thought they should have off season rates. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Couldn't dump tanks as sewer hook up began to overflow midway through the black dump. Quite nasty. Dog walking area was full of dry brush with burrs. Atmosphere is a bit "Bates Motel" for a woman traveling alone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location to camp on a quick trip through Kamloops. Right next to Wildlife park and get 2 for 1 coupons. Quite a bit of traffic and train noise throughout the night. Convenient location on way out of town towards Salmon Arm and Vernon We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is located in a ravine. Entry road is down a hill and is only slightly wider than one way. Two rigs coming and going could not pass each other. Site was tight, could not put all slides out. WiFi reception good but occasionally drops off. Lots of shade and quiet. Interior roads well maintained but narrow. Appears to have lots off full or long time residents. O.K. for short stay but when through this area again will look elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owners and other guests (many seem long term residents) were nice and washrooms/showers were OK. But we only stayed because it was late and we needed to stop for the night. The sites are jam-packed into a small ravine. We had trouble getting our 24' (small) unit backed in between the picnic table and the next unit. No privacy at all, and minimal shade. Hardly room to put up a folding chair. The "mountain stream" mentioned in the advertising is a tiny, weedy, muddy creek about 1' across, and barely 3" deep. I was then astonished to find (AFTER we hooked up, (they should have told us verbally at check-in about this) that all the water available is subject to a boil water advisory. This means you should not brush your teeth or get shower water into your mouth either. OK to stop into for a night if you are needing a place to sleep, otherwise, give this a pass. Suggestions to owners: provide clean water, provide larger, more private and shaded spots (Kamloops and area is hot and dry in the summer), level sites more carefully, billing the tiny creek as a mountain stream is misleading. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the most beautiful campgrounds I’ve ever encountered, if not *the* most beautiful. All sites are large, well separated from their neighbors with plenty of foliage between them. Some sites are meant for two families camping together. These sites share a common driveway and are intentionally close to each other. Lac Le Juene is a beautiful lake, with a pier for fishing, and a swimming area. There is a boat launch and we saw canoes on the shore. We did not see any water-ski type power boats on the lake, but it was 7PM on a Thursday night, so they may have off the water, or perhaps are not allowed. We did see small aluminum fishing boats with small outboards. There is a 7 mile hiking/biking trail around the lake. The toilets scattered around the campground look like single-hole pit toilets from the outside, but each actually contains a single flush toilet. There was no sink … except for a large bath facility associated with the beach parking lot, which I imagine could be used by nearby camp sites. This is a dry campground, but does have water spigots scattered throughout it. There is a nice looking dump station near the entrance. We were here in late July, and the outside temperature was in the mid-50’s, which is pretty chilly to be doing water activities. According to other campers, it’s normally in the 80’s or 90’s at this time We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It has been five years since we last stayed here---we stopped because the pine beetle infestation forced the park to essentially clear cut the campground. It is still not as uniformly wooded as it was, but the efforts to restore the forest are starting to show. If you arrive early there are sites that are more wooded/shaded than others, but they are the first to go after the sites closest to the lake shore. But this park has many nice features despite the change in forestation. The lake is nice for fishing and paddling and there is easy access from a number of points along the shore. The shore on the lake in the park has a large grassy area that is gorgeous and the grass looks like a top-notch golf green. Its quiet here except for some very distant highway noise. We are happy to return this campground to our list of favorites and it will continue to improve as the trees grow back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful campground. Large well spaced sites--all back in. Big rigs would have absolutely no problem especially on the perimeter loop of the campground. Inner roads a little narrower. Campground is built on hillside so lovely views of lake from upper sites. Huge grassy park-like beach area and boat launch. Only downside--wish there were more hiking trails. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Some of the sites in this park are truly humongous. Sites in excess of 60' are common. Sites wide enough to fit two TTs at a single rate are plentiful as well. It is all dry camping: so at $24, a little pricey. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are no pull through sites in this campground. The main grocery store in Logan Lake has new owners and is now very good, about 20-25 minutes from the park. There are still many trees to be cut down because of the beetle infestation but the fishing is still good (smallish rainbow trout) We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is on our top ten list of favorite parks. Unfortunately on this last visit, we were shocked to see the park had been stripped of many trees that had been affected by the Pine Beetle. They have to cut out these infested, dying/dead trees in order to mitigate the spread of the pest. Really looked terrible compared to what it used to be like, but they are re-planting and in a few years it will start to look good again. In spite of this, we will stay here again. Good lake acess and nice lawn areas on the lake. Well spaced and well-kept sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Unfortunately this park was infested with pine beetles and was extensively logged off leaving few trees between sites, especially in the upper part of the campground. IMHO it's still a nice place to camp for a few days, but, at least for now, it has lost a lot of privacy between sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A Typical Provincial Park, Not very many Luxuries, but lots of outdoor activities. A Great Lake with an excellent beach - Even the fishing was pretty good. Most outhouses have flush toilets and are amply supplied. Don't forget any supplies though, because the nearest store is 40 minutes away. The sites are nice and big, with lots of tree and space between you and the next site. If you can handle the dry camping part this is definitely a park worth a couple of days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We arrived late and found no space, but the wardens were really friendly and helpful and directed us to the overflow campground. The overflow campground was right next to the lake and had public toilets. The site was level and quiet. There were some good hiking trails directly from the campground. I'd recommend climbing to the top of Gibraltar rock! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park with lots to do but, as with all Provincial parks We have visited lately - found the primary purpose of the park is to generate cash for the contractor - there is no longer any up keep of any of the facilities, rules are not enforced and it has taken a toll on the park and it's atmosphere. We hadn't even leveled our rig before getting asked for cash. The 20K speed limit is ignored by all, including the park staff as they were busily selling fire wood even though there were lots of kids running around. Such a shame. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you like to dry camp this is a great place to enjoy a few days. The park is about 15 miles north of Kamloops located on a very nice lake. There is plenty to do here so just enjoy. If you have a big rig, plan on using one of the back-in sites on the outer loop for easy access. The inside sites are a little tight but some are still okay for a bigger rig. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were charged $5 for each child per night, so we had to pay $50 dollar per night for a family of five:my three sons, my husband and I. I found this really outrageous. They did not accept credit card and do not let you know that upfront. This campground has been the worst campground that I and my family have ever been. The space for the RV/trailers is very small. There is almost no room between sites. The people that run this private campsite accept tent campers that is more than the campsite can handle. They put a lot of RV/tents in the overflow,; therefore, the washrooms in the morning are completely dirty and without toilet paper and soap because they only clean the washrooms in the afternoon. In summary, this has been the worst campsite we have the displeasure to stay. The people that run this campground do not care if you feel unhappy about the bad service/attention they’re giving to the campers. They only care about money. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I spent an extended stay in this campground for 7 weeks. My site was a long term site at the end of the campground to accommodate the size of my 5th wheel. Not much view of the river. Electricity was an issue - being at the end of the campground and last on the circuit, I lost power several times in a day during the hottest days of the summer. Services in the campground are minimal; 2 TV channels, no Wi-Fi. The campground is always busy and well looked after. The camp hosts run a good operation and were very nice to work with. The convenience of the location is what makes the campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pretty easy in and out. Sites are close together and little shade. Park well run and clean. Bathhouse very clean. Liked proximity to river and town. Train noise didn't bother us. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unfortunately when we arrived in Kamloops the river had flooded and all the campsites were under water. The campground hosts were very gracious and found us a spot in the overflow with electricity and water. It was very uneven and difficult to level the trailer or even walk around. Wi-Fi is advertised but too weak to connect to. We only stayed 2 nights so it was OK but I wouldn't have wanted to stay longer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were VERY disappointed. We did not stay in the lower campground but in the overflow area. Same rate. No river view; right with mobile homes. We were there for a soccer tournament, so spent very little time in the site. Our biggest upset was the cost. Children are 11 and 13 years but were told they were $5.00 EXTRA per child, per night! We were a self contained unit, as a family; NOT four adults over 18. Tried to discuss with "caretakers" but were told the owners didn't care as they were busy enough and didn't care if we ever came back. Be also aware they do not take debit, credit card, or check. CASH ONLY! Very inconvenient. All around a big disappointment. We will not go back next year. Extremely poor service and PR. Otherwise a great weekend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is very scruffy and not well kept. Restrooms are fine, there is no laundry, there is now a dump station. Sites are close together and tight to get into, especially if both sides are occupied, and they are not level.The grass on our site was long and uneven and full of small items of trash. It was OK for one night but too expensive. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of small rigs and tents. Right on the river and kids go rafting in the Thompson River. Can't see much of the river because bushes hid most of it. No sewer connections and no dump station so arrive empty. Only 30 amp, no 50 amp. Satellite TV worked on my site. Some sites have lots of trees. Good, oiled gravel road into the park - not dusty. Cute young lady runs the park. Sites are very short. I was in space 18, an end spot, and I was almost parallel parked which worked out OK. My big rig [40'] would not had fit on any other site. It would have protruded into the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
