Electrical hookups (30 amp service) are available at the park. Please note: the cost of electrictity is $5.00/night

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.

No campfires are allowed in the day-use area. Ensure that barbecues or campstoves are used on the ground, not set on picnic tables.

There are a few undesignated trails used by visitors in the vicinity of the campground. Caution should be used when hiking in the area. Watch out for prickly pear cactus and during the months of March – June, watch for ticks.
During lower water levels on the river, there is a small “swimming hole” on the beach in front of the campground. It is an area that is naturally sectioned off from the main river and provides a more protected swimming opportunity. Use caution as the waters of the Thompson River are dangerously swift especially during high water. There are no lifeguards on duty in provincial parks.
Canoeing and kayaking opportunities are available in the area. Both vessels can be easily launched from the park. Canoeists should check the grade of the river before attempting navigation.

Thompson River contains trout, steelhead and salmon. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Wildlife viewing
There are bird watching opportunities at this park.
Pets on leash
Pets/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. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
