This park offers 17 vehicle-accessible campsites. There are three pull-through sites but no doubles.
Campsite reservations are accepted. During the peak season, all of the sites reservable and non-occupied reservation sites can accommodate first come, first served customers for on more nights, depending on availability. If no staff are present, campers can self-register and put their fee in the self-registration vault.
The sites are mid-sized and shaded by large Douglas fir, though the vegetation is sparse leaving the campground with limited privacy. Half of the sites are situated along the top of the river bank and the gravel pads have been raised above the surrounding terrain. The slope to the river is steep.
|Vehicle-accessible camping fee||$23 per party per night|

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. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented.
To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
The day-use and picnic area is west of the campground, along the Similkameen River. It features 19 tables and a 29 car parking lot. There are two pit toilets, one of which is wheelchair-accessible. There is no tap in the day-use area.
Many of the tables are spread out amidst two old growth Douglas fir which provide ample shade on hot days while the remainder are found along a strip of lawn shaded by smaller deciduous trees and overlooking the river. The lawn is not irrigated.
Concrete stairs lead from the parking lot down to the river and a large beach of fine sand. After spring freshet when water levels are lower, the rocky bluffs that jut into the river create a quiet pool, perfect for swimming. The beach is quite large throughout the summer, though size varies with water level.
This park has four pit toilets in the campground and two pit toilets in the day-use area. There are no flush toilets.
Swimming can be done in the Similkameen River. Please be aware that there are no lifeguards. Caution should be taken as the strength of the current changes. There are no swim buoys or ropes to designate the swimming area. Diving from the cliffs across the river from the beach is prohibited.
There are fishing opportunities at this park, though the Similkameen River has a bait ban from April 1 to October 31 and wild rainbow trout must be released from this area. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
Pets and domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. There is no designated dog beach but there are many areas for swimming downstream from the sandy beach. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to the potential for problems with bears and other wildlife.
Bicycles must keep to roadways. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.
Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Bromley Rock Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.
