  • We come to this park several times a year as we live fairly close by. It has always been a great experience. We just finished 3 days camping there this year in early September. Once again, beautiful....  more »
  • Kekuli Bay is a beautiful place for a campground. The views of Kalamalka Lake from each site are amazing - you give up a little privacy to get the view. Our site was plenty big enough for two tents.....  more »
  • The campground is exceptionally clean and well taken care of, which is why it's almost always full. The campsites are large and surrounded by bushes on most sides. Since the sites are elevated each site provides an excellent view to Kalamaka lake. Parking at the boat launch is rather limited so come early to grab a spot. The beach is gravel, but the clear water and beautiful view more than make up for it
  • Good location at the boat launch ramp and less than 10 minutes from downtown Vernon. The camp sites are spacious and separated enough to have a little privacy, but only some of them have shade. Gravel pads are basically impossible to drive tent pegs, but that's typical. Some sites have lake views. The bathrooms have flushing toilets and hot water showers. There is some noise from the highway just up the hill, more so at the upper sites. You might want earplugs if sleeping in a tent. The beach is rocky but ok if you have waterproof shoes. The rail trail along the lake is right there and excellent for walking, biking, or running.
