We just happened upon this campsite when we got to Osoyoos. Although the sites are close together, the cabanas are such a wonderful feature it offset the closeness. That being said, the closeness also afforded us a chance to get to know our neighbours quickly. The rates were very reasonable, the showers/washrooms were extremely clean. The beach was beautiful and right across the road from us. There happened to be a magician camping there one of the nights we stayed there, and we could hear the very happy chatter and applause of the children. After the first night, we actually decided to stay an additional evening because we enjoyed it so much.
It has a great proximity to the town, and the owner was personable. It's beautiful in Osoyoos, and staying at a campground like this made our visit even more memorable.
- 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
