There are about 25 South Okanagan campgrounds, RV Parks and private campsites to stay at, between Osoyoos, Oliver BC, OK Falls, Kaleden, Penticton, Summerland and Peachland, which you'll find listed on this page. Camping in the BC southern Okanagan Valley, which is situated at the northern tip of the Sonora Desert, in the Great Basin Desert Region, offers so much to enjoy for summer vacation. Plus, you have three lakes to enjoy... Osoyoos Lake, Skaha Lake and Lake Okanagan.
Down here summer temperatures are commonly in the high 30's°C, and the climate is semi arid. In addition to the wine, golf, beautiful lakes, and beaches, you'll find so much to explore in this desert region including the South Okanagan Grasslands Protected Area and Mt. Kobau, one of the best places in Canada for star gazing.
The Kettle Valley Trail runs throughout the South Okanagan valley, and Skaha Bluffs, attracts rock climbers to scale its walls in three parallel canyons.
Some unique and fun places to visit in and around south Okanagan campgrounds are the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, an astrophysics research center that uses radio telescopes to collect the natural radio signals from space, also in the protected grasslands near White Lake, and the Osoyoos Desert Center.
