    We stayed here the July long weekend as our maiden voyage with our PUP. The campsite is an easy drive sitting on the northwest arm of Shuswap lake: Google Map

    We stayed in campsite 150A which was pretty well in the middle of the site. The pad was flat, the site was clean and had the standard fire pit and picnic table. The site fairly wooded in and had decent privacy and shade, especially from about 6pm onwards. Some friends of ours were staying in the double site 87 and it was even more wooded in; you could barely tell anyone was camping around you.

    We regularly saw people on golf carts going through the park, which was good to see. Most people camping there seemed to follow the rules about generator use and noise. Only one night was there any real noise beyond 10pm.

    The facilities were nice and clean with flush toilets and a couple shower halls. The showers were ok; warm if anything and the shower heads were these odd spouts that came straight down and sent water everywhere, even on your pile of dry clothes hanging up.

    There was a big open grass area and a big playground for the kids and a long section of beach. the beach itself is fairly rocky but the water is nice. Unfortunately I got a bad case of swimmer's itch that trip, but a few minutes west down the road you came in on leads to a Super-Valu that sells Calamine and Benadryl. [SNZ]

    For a place with almost 250 sites, it didn't feel overly crowded. There were frequent people going by on bikes or walking but it wasn't overly noisy and made for a relaxing trip (minus the itching).

    I would go back!
