Okanagan Campgrounds RV Parks
Private Okanagan RV Campgrounds & Parks
There are more than 60 private Okanagan campgrounds RV parks and camping resorts to spend your summer vacation camping at.
Because camping and RV'ing is a big part of summer tourism economy in the Okanagan, it's reasonable to say that most park owners work hard at providing the best service and facilities for visitors.
Personally we've always had a good experiences camping at Okanagan RV parks and private campgrounds.
We've travelled around and camped in both our tent and also our travel trailer - and it's nice to have the a/c in camper for those really hot spells during summer. ;-)
For those with a home on wheels, you'll find most modern conveniences such as Cable TV, Internet or Internet Cafe and WiFi.
Generally RV parks and camp grounds in the valley offer partial and/or full hook up services with 15 and 30 amp service, and some with 50 amp service.
Most facilities have amenities such as shower and laundry, private grounds, family and kids entertainment such as small arcades, volleyball, playgrounds, bocee ball, badminton, community firepits, and more. Inground pools and hot tubs are sometimes a nice added plus.

Camping British Columbia Okanagan - Some General Guidelines
You can expect to pay a more at a private campground than BC Provincial Parks and Forest Service parks during peak season, but lower off season rates, and many RV parks are open year round.
Campgrounds RV parks rates typically run from $20 - $45+ respectively, low to high season and are also typically higher on long weekend Canadian holidays.
Reservations are almost a must as most campgrounds & RV parks fill quickly for the summer, and especially on holiday weekends. If you like to avoid crowds, the best time to go camping is actually in the spring and fall, when rates are lower, and there are less people in the campgrounds. Spring and fall are also excellent times for birdwatching.
Check in and check out times vary with individual campgrounds and parks.
A good guideline is 11:00 a.m. for both. If you're arriving at a site later than 9 p.m. you may want to call ahead as some campgrounds and RV parks don't allow check in after that time. However, unforseen circumstances can delay any of us, and calling ahead in those circumstances will prevent problems should you arrive quite late. Also, newer facilities may have security gates that automatically lock after a certain time in the evening. If you arrive unexpectedly late you may not be able to get in.
Quiet time is generally 10:30 or 11:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. at most sites, and disregard for quiet times is not welcomed by campground owners.
If you're bringing your pet with you, it must be kept on a leash and are never to be left unattended. There are very few parks (if any at all) that allow pets off the leash. There are, however, dog beaches, and other designated areas where you can safely let your pet run and exercise.
Not all RV parks and campgrounds have individual firepits.
If a campfire is vital to your vacation, be sure to check in advance if firepits are available. Also, campfire bans and restrictions are common in the summer here during forest fire season, so do be aware of regulations during that time.
Be aware of cancellation policies at private facilities.
