Friendly stuff, clean rooms, decent wifi, swimming pool access, 2 minutes walking distance away from the lake. Only con was the price which was a bit high. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

This was our fourth stop on our BC trip. I had visited Christina Lake many years ago and my husband never before. The room was like a little house. We had suite one on the side. The owner showed us around and she was very lovely and helpful. It was red hot, high 30's and we picked this particular motel... More

Totem Campground has clean washrooms, $0.25 hot showers and pretty fast Wi-Fi. Washrooms and showers are older, but very clean. The park has tall coniferous trees. The spots are spaced in an interesting fashion, so that despite being close to each other, you get as much privacy as possible. We were allowed to stay for 1 hour past the check-out... More

This February I was searching for a nice camping location for my family and another family. I had contact Totem to see if there was availability for 2 sites beside eachother that also had hookups. I was told that they did. I booked these for 8 nights starting July 26. I paid the deposit for both sites and was mailed... More

Unfortunately we needed to cancel this reservation because we were overbooked. I was away and my employee took some bookings and neglected to write them on the master booking sheet. I needed to cancel right away so that the customer would have time to find something else. I even found the customer something else before I phoned to cancel. I... More

This is a great place to stay for families! We had our family reunion at this resort and there were many options for accommodation with fully furnished suites, fully set up trailer rentals, and camping including tents and RV sites. The location is just one block to the beach and the pool which is on the property was most loved... More

This place is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, pub, grocery store, liquor store / agencies, and bakery. Small beach nearby and main beaches within 5 minute drive. 12 mile warm lake to swim, boat, fish snorkel, water ski, or just enjoy the sun and beautiful scenery. If you don't want to tent , rent a suite or one... More

For the price and location, this is a great place to stay at the warmest lake in Canada. The fact that they have the only pool in the area is also a bonus for the kids. We walked everywhere including the beach. We have brought our motorhome there to "camp" and also stayed in the suites. Very hospitable and they... More

Great location close to the beach and nice areas to walk. Kids loved it, especially the pool! Owners were very welcoming and friendly but extremely busy! We stayed in a suite that had everything we needed which was nice because we didn't bring all the little extras (i.e. cork screw!) also equipped with a bbq and a gazebo to shade... More

Hi, we took the family to Cristina Lake three years in a row and this last visit stayed at Totem. There was so many good things about this place, and just a few bad. First the good, the pool was a huge feature for everybody, if they built some slides or more kid stuff this place would thrive. The management... More
