From the minute you turn off the highway to drive down to the campsite you know that this is a very well cared for campsite. The edges of the road are all mowed and everywhere is super tidy and clean. The campsites are level making...More

Neat park right on the Thompson river off hwy 97. Small park with about 30 sites. Most back on the Thompson river and are a good size. Good for R&R. Other than fishing, bird watching, etc, not much to do. No park equipment for kids....More

This is a nice provincial park campground that was well cared for. We enjoyed the visit and since I like trains this place was awesome with both the CP and CN nearby... If you don't like trains bring ear plugs.

We stopped here to have a look and wished we had camping gear with us. Very peaceful, very clean right on the river. Great spot for fishing and picnicking as well.
