Great campsite with fantastic lake. The water was super clean for swimming and boating. The campground is great. Finding flush toilets there was pleasantly surprising. The toilets were very clean and drinking water was excellent.

The staff were the nicest, quite warm and friendly. We definitely would go back and visit the place again in the future.

5 couples stayed for 4 nights at the Otter lake park in September. From the park we biked the KVR, kayaked on the lake and went for walks. The location of the park is about 5 km from Tulameen and near the north end of the lake. very good location. The campsites are quite spacious, well treed, and some have a great view of the lake. The operators were very friendly and nice. We would have enjoyed a camp area with a little more sun exposure.

We stayed at Otter Lake Provincial Park for 5 days this June. The campground was almost empty and our site was large and very well maintained. The campground was clean and the park operator was pleasant and efficient. He was aware of all activity in the park and was very attentive to washrooms and all aspects of the park. We biked the Kettle Valley Rail Trail and were able to leave the campground and bike a 20KM loop and return via the road from Tulameen. Definitely would stay here again

We found Otter Lake Provincial Park rather by mistake but were pleasantly surprised. The road from Princeton is windy but stunning drive.
I'm not sure why another reviewer said there was no wildlife- in 2 days we saw a beautiful Great Horned Owl, many different deer, Bald Eagles and we were actually only in the campsite for 1 night and 1 sleep as we were attending a family affair at Bluey Lake.
Obviously, the camp host has changed since last year. The gentlemen who run the place was kind and unobtrusive. He was up before dawn and quiet because the washrooms were always super clean. There was no strong-arming anyone and sites were clean. Mostly very peaceful but for a group of partiers who weren't too excessive and a young infant that cried excessively. This sometimes can't be helped-you choose to share space with people when you camp at Provincial parks and the rest of my family had zero sleep up at the Forest rec sites they were aty because of ridiculous partying.
And the Loons were amazing. We'll be going back with kayaks and mountain bikes!

The lake is beautiful, warm and quiet. The drive in was a little winding but pretty good. We pulled a 25’ trailer no problem. The sites are like the average provincial sites. Very treed and shady. The bugs are terrible! Mosquitoes were bad but the biting flies were unbearable. The park rangers were more aggressive than the bugs. I don’t know how they even have a job. They complained about our dog, shhh’d our kids while they played during the day and spoke condescendingly to us if we were still at the picnic table or around the propane fire at 10pm. They threatened to kick us out or call the cops every single night. We started going to bed at 10 (the latest we were in bed the whole time was 11pm-it gives you an idea of what kind of family we are) but our last night there they came in our site at 9:40 to yell at us again. We ended up packing and leaving 2 days early. We camp at least 3 weeks with provincial every summer and have NEVER had issues. Bear creek, Haynes point, chilliwack, cultus, golden ears, manning park, rolley, deer, Sasquatch and many more. If you have kids, pets or the hankering to stay up past 9:30, this campground is NOT for you!

Hosts want quiet at 10 sharp otherwise they are in your camp. They come back later at nite and walk around your site flashing lights after your gone to bed. The sites are a good distance apart and well kept. The bugs eat you alive. Good spot for kayaking lots of weeds and fresh water muscles don't know if the y are intrusive or not. Like the fact that no cellphones gives you chance to camp with kids.

Just returned from excellent 11 day stay at this quaint Provincial Campsite just north sit This mean. Sites are roomy, well spaced and kept in immaculate condition. Weather was also excellent but be prepared for a few cool evenings due to the elevation. There are numerous things to do, (kayaking, biking, ATV trips, biking to Tulameen Falls) with the bonus of being only 5-6 hi utes from the town of Tulameen and it's groceries, gas and propane service at Tulameen Trading Co.

Probably the highlight was our camp hosts/managers. They were very easy to talk to, didn't run the park like a concentration camp but still maintained order and rounds to ensure the park maintained its family friendly atmosphere. All areas and washrooms were kept impecably clean. To my suprise, my wife couldn't arrive until 4 days in, and I was surprised to hear they don't charge any extra for spouses if they must arrive separately with a 2nd vehicle.

We were a large mixed group of adults and children occupying 6-7 campsites. The consensus was "We can't wait to come back".

Nice spot for camping, but too many bugs this time of year. The lake was beautiful, the campsite quiet for the most part. Not sure why there are logging trucks heading north in the wee hours of the night (periodically). Nice to wake up to the loons on the lake. Probably won’t go back though, as it’s a bit out of the way (no cell phone service), and the bugs!
