This is a great place to hike. I love walking here in the spring when the snow is melting and the river is going fulltilt. I have hiked here over 30 times in the last six months, The views are incredible. If you start to the right it is much more challenging.

It's not too long, and close to the highway - easy to find. Great views of the lake and downtown Kelowna. It is a steep hike up,but worth the work.

We pulled into the campground on Sept 1st to find a great campsite that backed up to the picnic area with lots of green grass and picnic tables complete with a view of the lake. It was a beautiful site in a beautiful park. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the stay thoroughly. We found the bathroom and showers to... More

Stayed 2 nights here. Site 121 backing on to the creek. Pretty nice and private and big. $30/night for a tent with car included is a bit steeper than other provincial parks but not that much different. The easy hike across the street is really neat, especially when you get down in to the ravine and to the look outs... More

A great provincial campground with a waterfall and trails to hike. We arrived late and the young park ranger found us a site by the creek. The next morning our RV would not start we could not figure it out so we went to the front office and asked if they knew of a mobile mechanic, we called three and... More

Just a 15 minute drive from downtown Kelowna, Bear Creek offers a wide range of different campsites, from pristine lakefront, to gladed forest, to raging creek front. My wife andI prefer the "newer" loop, which is located to the south of the entrance over the Bear Creek bridge. These sites, for the most part, offer the most privacy. There is... More

Moderate difficulty hike. Nice views of Okanogan Lake and tall waterfalls. Many fire-killed trees and lots of old trees. Saw some geese and some small critters.
