My dad and I needed to find a place to stay since we were on the road and it was getting late. We happened to stumble across this place and decided to stay. My dad and I stayed in a really cool tent cabin that was furnished and I was even able to charge my phone in there. My dad... 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 had the vision of finding a little cabin in the woods somewhere's for our holiday this summer and sought out to find it. It was not easy, until we stumbled upon this little place in gods country. It was just what we had imagined as our perfect little cabin in the woods destination. The view from our cabin deck... More

Glamped out at the Rock ! Never Glamped before and found this place. Our Tent Cabin was beyond spectacular & even came with a wine rack ! Just like an outdoor hotel. 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. The owner said she was not open yet, but we were more than welcome to stay and pointed us to a campsite she calls " River 1" wow-wow-wow ! The full on beauty of our... More

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

What a jewel of a place ! We are shocked by those slanderous negative reviews. We had an amazing time and found our little piece of heaven on the Thompson. The B&B was spacious clean with cheerful country décor. The breakfast was fantastic. The fishing some of the best in BC if not the world ! The service was better... More
