About This Park
Inkaneep Provincial Park is nestled in tall riverside cottonwoods in a residential area. This park offers wonderful bird watching opportunities.
The park is conveniently located just outside of the town of Oliver.
Although this small park offers few recreation opportunities, access to nearby hiking and biking trails, climbing opportunities and golfing make this an affordable and desirable location from which to explore the South Okanagan. Bike the backroads to nearby wineries or ride the International Hike and Bike Trail which runs along the far side of the river.
The campground is best suited for tenters and small RVs; most sites will not accommodate large RVs and 5th wheel trailers. This park often has sites available, even during peak periods.
Established Date: March 16, 1956
