I found the BC parks website to be spot on with its description of the campsite at Fintry. You essentially get to choose between shade, or privacy. Sites 1-50 are small and tightly packed together, with virtually no barriers between sites. Good for groups perhaps - but not quite what we were looking for. Sites 51-100 were more private, but there was less shade on that side. We lucked out with site #66, on the edge of the campground, that had quite a bit of both shade and privacy - there were only a couple of hours during the day that we had no shade in our site. Though we had reserved, they did not specify which site to go to, so it is still first-come-first-served in a way, for the primo sites. We also had our own little path right to the beach - every campsite in this park is very close to the water. The beach stretches the whole length of the park - it is all great for swimming, though the day-use area gets the most sun. The water was warm - we were in there almost constantly! There are no kayak/canoe rentals in the area. There are flush toilets, showers, and nice parks staff. While we were there the conservation society held a pancake breakfast fundraiser - good timing! The closest store is about 10 minutes down westside road and has all the essentials. The hike up the waterfalls was good exercise, but a little disappointing scenery-wise. Overall there was a mix of mostly families and some partiers as well - but everyone was pretty considerate.
Get there early to get a good site - then head straight for the water. This is a great place to camp, a bit off the beaten path compared to Kelowna, Kamloops, or Penticton - well worth the drive if you like the beach and lake swimming/activities.
