Our camping/glamping family reunion was a great tiime at the R&RR. We had guests from Barcelona who were in constant awe at the space, the fish jumping in the river and the scenic trains and farms of the area. We prepared meals on the BBQ's provided. Washrooms are a short walk to the outhouse and there's a solar shower. There... More

We have been several times in the last few weeks to Tammy's place. First thing to not you are unlikely Anywhere else right on the river camping places. I love the new Solar shower and outhouse. I chose to do 'Navy' showers (rinse,turn off, wash/rinse, turn off, rinse) and left lots of hot water for other guests. I loved LOVED... More

We were beyond thrilled with the service, the nature, our Camping /Glamping experience on The Thompson at the rock. My husband caught a 3 lb trout to boot... More

Travelling towards Drumheller and with Juniper Beach full for full hook ups along with the Savona campground we settled on this place. The owner was friendly enough and she has a great location along the Thompson river but the campground is in some serious need of work. The full hook up price of $35 is fair but wow after a... More

Hello fellow Camper, We are so sorry you are disappointed in the $8,000.00 out buildings we put up this year. Hand made with cedar and crafted by Marcs Outdoor furniture in Vancouver with 45 years experience in making outstanding wood building structures. You are mistaken with regards to our new solar shower, it is not run on a garden hose... More

We love this place. The camping is right on the river and hook ups or not it is the best. Tammy is a wonderful host and it's a laid back experience which we quite enjoy. All the rules and regs of provincial campgrounds are left behind so you can relax and enjoy the stars, camping, campfires and quiet. We are... More

Hell Ya ! We decided to take advantage of the early BC spring this year and happened on this unique corner just outside of Savona.

We stayed here on our road trip around the Rockies and loved every second. Tammy the host ran out to greet us when we arrived and proceeded to make our stay unforgettable. She made us dinner which we took back to our cabin. (Yummy pizza). We toasted marshmallows on the outdoor fire pit, lay back and watched the stars. In... More
