We stayed here for 3 nights in August. The campsites are very close together and lack any sort of privacy, so if that is what you are looking for, this is not the place. Overall this place has its share of pros and cons. Pros include the decent washrooms that are cleaned several times a day, the individual cabanas that, yes are very run down, but do provide a sink, running water and electricity. Also the proximity to the beach from the campsite is great. The cons are again the lack of privacy as the camp stalls are extremely close together. It is a very kid friendly place so if you have kids with you, great. If you do not, it is very loud and not relaxing at all. Another con is the lack of fires allowed, which isn't a huge con as it is generally so hot in Osoyoos anyway, but if you think camping and fires go hand in hand, you may be disappointed. Overall, it is a decent spot for a few days. The price is comparable to other sites in the area and the management and staff are friendly and helpful.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Operates approx May 15 - Sept 15 each summer. A small, family-run campground located on Osoyoos Lake, near the Town of Osoyoos in BC Canada. Established in the 1960's this campground has always catered to families, seniors, couples and single travellers. The campground accepts tents, small/medium-sized RVs and also offers to those needing a simple budget sleeping unit several camping cabins and bedroom cabanas - these rooms comes with beds, mattresses, lights, electricity, a fridge, sink, mini-stove, and outdoor patio (weekly stays only in summer). Although an older park, Cabana Beach Campground has unique features that you will not likely find at older/rustic or provincial campsites : the 3-sided "kitchen cabana" shelters come with a picnic table, sink, light, and elec outlet and are included at most of the tent sites, with optional fridge rental available. Some modern amenities are also:fully tiled, coin-op showers, free use of central wifi, free use of air-compressor hose to quickly fill up your air-beds, bike tires, and all your floating water toys. Park owners live on-site. This park has strictly enforced common-sense campsite rules - No noise or behaviours which annoy or disturb other campers. For this reason, radios or tv's must be off by 10 pm, and "quiet time" is at 11 pm . There is one (perhaps) unusual rule - No Dogs are accepted. No fires either - but the main reason is there is often a complete regional fire-ban all summer long. Campers can still bring a propane fire pit. Also a campstove or barbecue for grilling! ... more less
