The campsites are all very nice. Some have a view of the lake, but they all are surrounded by trees. Our site was meticulously clean upon arrival. The facilities were almost all brand new and beautifully maintained. The beach is broken up into a number of almost private areas. The boat launch is just a 2 minute drive down the... More

We arrived at the campground 4 weeks ago without having made a reservation. When we tried to check-in we were told that all the sites were full, but the host Tom, told us to wait and he would do his best to get us in. After about half an hour he came back with a big smile on his face... More

This was a great campground. No reservations needed after September Long Weekend. Apparently during summer it is crazy busy and you must reserve. Very private beaches, almost deserted. A bit of a steep walk down from the campsite but after 1 day, no problem and definitely worth the hike! Very warm lake for swimming. The mornings this time of year... More

New iconic BC Provincial Parks (the best parks in Canada) picnic tables! New gravel pads and concrete picnic table slabs, new flush toilets and of course the fabulous timber frame showers! Absolutely one of the best campsites around. Kudos to the current caretakers. And the lake! Well what can I say, crystal clear and still swimming in it on September... More

Wow...what a great provincial campground! We stayed here for one night only but we would have stayed longer if we could have. Situated right on Christina lake with lots of small beaches only used by campground users. The campground is run by a real friendly couple who seem to be working around the clock. Very clean washrooms and showers. The... More

What a great place to chill with the family for a few days. The campground was clean and well maintained, and the camp hosts and campground operators were friendly and professional. Spent 2 great days on the beaches and a day hiking and exploring. Can't wait to come back!

I spent a night here with the kids recently on a reconnaissance mission for next year's week long camping trip - what a fab camping ground. Hot showers, lovely sites, warm lake with lots of little semi private beaches. Will most definitely be back next year, for a longer stay!
