We loved our short stay here and wished we had more time to spend. The owner was kind and accommodating even though we showed up unexpectedly and very late. The beach setting was amazing to wake up to and we even enjoyed the sound of the frequent trains in the country. The availability of clean, potable water was very nice.... More

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.

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, Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we are sorry you were not happy with your stay.

Fortunately our many guests feel differently and enjoy the beautiful riverfront acerage and clean quiet and very large sites on... 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
