4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Quiet park like setting some noise from highway 97 but not disruptive. Most sites have adequate shade for the heat try to avoid #142 - no shade. Facilities (laundry showers etc )a little dated but adequate. Front desk staff very helpful. Grounds staff excellent. Interesting concept have herb gardens for guests use unique idea! Would recommend.

We stayed here last June, and loved it. This year, not so much. Were promptly informed showers cost $1/5 minutes now, found out the laundry room was closed at 4pm, the store closed at 6pm. Very disappointed. Sure, $1 a hit for a shower doesn't seem like a big deal, but nickel and diming people isn't cool. Also ticked off... More

Arriving on September 11th, we had just one night to spend camping. The general manager, Jamie, was friendly and very helpful on the phone, guiding us to the tent sites at the back of the property. Not expecting gravel, we were a tad disappointed but we were pleasantly surprised by the amenities. Each site had a clean picnic table, a... More

We stayed here for a weekend after the main tourist season so it was almost empty. We were given a campsite right next to the kiddies park which was perfect for us, as we had our 4 year old with us. We were able to watch him from our picnic table and he didn't have to cross the road to... More

The campground was packed full on the weekend making the very small beach almost impossible to find a spot to put your towel. The campground lacked trees and was abut of a parking lot. The playgrounds and bathrooms were fine. The front desk was great at helping me plan some wine tours. It calmed down on the weekdays and was... More

A favourite spot for years...lovely and quiet in the evening. One of the few campgrounds where you're not blasted by other camper's music. (Hope they keep it this way!) Super safe for families as there is only one road in and out so the transients seem to stay away. We'll be back again next year!

As a camper Gallagher Lake since the 70's, we've seen some changes in management over the years. There's no point dwelling in the past, but I can say that these people really have their stuff together again. The last few years have seen an increase in the managements ability to work with the guests for a better camping experience. This... More

This was our first time at Gallagher Lake and we had a fantastic experience and even booked our next year's stay before we left. We stayed with 2 other families in the lower campground. It is definitely set up like an RV park so the sites are very close together but this was never a problem for us as everyone... More

We stayed in a cabin for two nights in September. We really enjoyed our stay . The cabin has a bed and two bunk beds, a ceiling fan and a porch with a swing chair. The lake is small and has a little beach. There are many wineries in the area and Penticton isn't too far away for some shopping... More
