Vehicle-accessible camping

This park offers vehicle-accessible campsites including four large double sites. The campsites are arranged in three terraced loops to give all sites an unobstructed view of the lake. The sites have large gravel pads great for big RVs. Irrigated lawn landscaped with young trees and a variety of shrubs separates the sites. There is natural vegetation between the different terraces. 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 one, or perhaps more nights, depending on availability.

Vehicle-accessible camping fee: $32.00 per party per night
BC senior’s rate (day after Labour Day to June 14 only): $16.00 per senior party per night. Read the user fees policy for information on senior camping discounts.

Walk-in camping

There are eight walk-in campsites available. Located in a shared grassy area, each site has a picnic table and can accommodate from one to four people in either one large or two small tents. The fire pits are shared between the sites.

Accessibility information

Accessibility information is available for this park.

Picnic areas

A day-use and picnic facility is located just off the boat launch parking area. The large, open lawn area overlooks the lake and the boat launch. There are four picnic tables on cement pads, two with BBQ attachments, and one freestanding BBQ. The lawn is level and surrounds an adventure playground. There is no shade.

Pit or flush toilets

The park has mostly flush toilets, however, there are also a couple of pit toilets located throughout the park.


There are warm showers at this park. The shower building has a men’s and a women’s side. Each side has two sinks with nearby plug-ins, one toilet, and two shower stalls with small change areas.

Drinking water
Cold water taps are located throughout the park next to the flush toilets. Taps are shut off during the off-season.
This park has a playground area surrounded by irrigated grass and features a plastic, multi-level playground with two slides, climbing poles, and a small obstacle course, among other features.
Boat launch
The boat launch is located on a rocky point and is open until the first snowfall. The ramp is double-lane concrete that gets deep fairly quickly. There is also a wharf. Access is across the decommissioned CN railway line which is in the process of being converted into a trail corridor. Please be cautious when crossing as it may be being used by trail enthusiasts. There are two large parking lots. There are two pit toilets by the parking area. Please note that on weekends during the summer parking is at a premium.
Electrical hookups

Kekuli Bay Park offers four vehicle accessible campsites (#70-73) with electrical hook-ups. These small, paved sites are located in the overflow area and offer both 15amp and 30amp service with a standard RV receptacle (NEMA TT-30). Each site has its own picnic table, but the sites share a common fire pit. These sites are reservable.

There is an additional electrical service charge of $8 per night for these sites (whether the power is in use or not).

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 are 2.6km of gravel walking trails through the grasslands around the campground. The terrain is gently sloped. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.


There are no lifeguards on duty. The swimming area is rocky, use caution due to proximity to active train track and boat launch.


Canoeing and Kayaking is permitted on Kalamalka Lake.


Please obey all posted speed and vessel restrictions. Daily kokanee quota is two. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Interpretive programs

The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC has a fun, hands on, Learn to Fish Program that will teach basic angling skills to youth under 16 years old. Check back to this page or ask the park operator for more information.

Wildlife viewing
The whole campground has fantastic views of Kalamalka Lake. There are benches located by the playground that also overlook the lake. In addition, there are some bird watching opportunities, especially in the spring and fall.
Pets on leash

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.


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 Kekuli Bay 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.

Kekuli Bay is a boater’s destination. Kalamalka is a very popular lake for waterskiing. The boat launch was heavily used even before the creation of the campground and day-use areas.
