One pit toilet in the campground and one in the day-use area are wheelchair-accessible. Roads and paths to the pit toilets are paved.
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. 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.
There is one hand pump for water located near the info shelter.
The day-use/picnic area is west of the campground, also along the Similkameen. It features 19 tables and a 29 car parking lot. 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. There are two pit toilets, one of which is wheelchair-accessible. There is no tap in the day-use area. 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.
Pit or Flush Toilets
This park has 4 pit toilets in the campground and 2 pit toilets in the day-use area. There are no flush toilets.
Vehicle Accessible Camping
This park offers 17 vehicle-accessible campsites. There are three pull-through sites but no doubles. Campsite reservations
are accepted and first-come, first-served sites are available. 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 understory is sparse leaving the campground quite open and limiting privacy somewhat. 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: $23.00 per party / night
BC Senior’s Rate (day after Labour Day to June 14 only): $11.50 per senior party/
night. Read the User Fees Policy
