With a large group of friends and family we rented 4 of the 6 cabins available and they worked out perfectly. Not all the cabins are the same though and some were a bit nicer and more spacious than others but all were very pretty and had all the amenities you would need (flushing toilets were a HUGE plus) The cabins each overlook the lake which is one of the prettiest I have seen and each has a large deck with an amazing view. The water is a beautiful color . Rick and Sue were fantastic. Very helpful and always around if you needed them.
When we were there the beach was almost non-existent due to the high water level so that was a little disappointing. The playground and the surrounding woods gave our kids lots to do and they met a bunch of other kids there every time they went. We always felt they were completely safe.
Its no secret there are trains that run nearby and it is a busy track. I didn't mind them during the day but the first night was a little noisy. After that you kind of get used to it. I would bring ear plugs though. The bathrooms had plenty of hot water and were free which was nice. They could probably use a little updating but were otherwise in good condition. Because this campground is secluded (approx. 40 minutes past Golden) I would make sure to bring all the food and drinks you need with you as what they have available in the main lodge is minimal at best. Lastly, there is no Wi-Fi and some of cell service was unreliable so be prepared to be out of touch.
Overall it was a great place to stay and I would certainly return again or recommend to a friend.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kinbasket Lake Resort sits alone on a 240 kilometer long lake in the BC mountains. It consists of 6 self contained cabins, 45 serviced campsites, 8 unserviced campsites, boat launch, docking, and seasonal beach. Hot showers, flush toilets and sinks are available to all guests. It is a semi-rustic location meaning you are not glamping and you are not roughing it, and a great many of our customers refer to it as "paradise". Our clientele is mature adults and families and of the 3,500+ camp nights we host each season a great many are returning customers. A number of those were just bumps in mom's tummy the first year, I've seen them every year since, and now they are teens. And then there are some you will read from that have a different idea of camping than we do or different expectations and will never again be a customer. C'est la vie! ... more less
