Tent Camping in Osoyoos, BC

My friend and I are going to be making a road trip to Osoyoos in August. We are looking for a good campground close or in town that has a beach for swimming, and one with firepits in each site. We would also like one with washrooms with showers as we will be there for a week. Does anyone have any suggestions as to a good spot? Any info would be appreciated. Thank you.

I was all ready to recommend Rock Creek, until I read the part about showers....

We camped here last summer: …gov.bc.ca/bcparks/…kettle.html

What a lucky find. We were booked into a campground at Osoyoos and they cancelled on us, so we were panicked as were were on our way back from Sask. This is a great park, the river is shallow and warm and everyone rafts around it. This is only about 30 minutes out of Osoyoos, so it's easy to get in for the day. It has flush toilets (they look like pit toilets until you open the door) but no showers, just the river.

Otherwise, most of the Osoyoos campgrounds are being developed into high end condo units, but last time I was up there, there was still a couple of options for camping in Oliver, only 20 minutes up the road. It's a great area, and everything is close together, so I'm sure you'll have a great time.

Hi there...

Haynes Point is a great spot, not sure about the showers but they do have firepits and nice swimming areas. Can get breezy there in the afternoons. Check out the link.
