SOLD OUT and CANCELLED

A group campsite has been booked for the Labour Day long weekend in Fintry Provincial campground. Fintry is a 4 hour drive from Burnaby and located just North of Kelowna on the West shores of Okanagan Lake.

The 357 hectares of land in Fintry Provincial Park includes a triple waterfall, viewing platform, deep canyons, hikes through Canyon trail, old growth cottonwoods and a heritage house Fintry Estate with dairy barn. Both are open for guided tours.

This is our club’s 3rd time camping here, but this year we have a covered, cement floor structure on part of our site. The shelter has counters, sink, wood stove and 12 picnic tables. The rest of our group site is thick, plush grass. We have had such a great time the last 2 times, please join us this year! Please discuss any RV equipment with Coordinator (trailer, RV, boat, anything other than tent). Tents may have priority due to limited space. Additional charges may apply for RV’s. There is a limit to the number of people per space.

Campers should bring their own food, cooking and sleeping materials and provide their own travel. There will be one group potluck dinner planned together – this year is Greek Dinner. Chicken souvlaki will be provided and a signup list for rest of dinner items and the night’s information, will be circulated to those signed up. (There may be an option to pay nominal $ to forego potluck signup list).

Please note:

  • Quiet time begins at 10:00 pm and ends at 7:00 am. During these hours, no electronic sound devices may be used. The Ranger got fired during our last stay as he didn’t enforce the noise at a neighbouring campsite, so please don’t sign up if you can’t abide by the rules
  • Generator use is only permitted between 9-11am & 6-8pm
  • A natural sand beach and warm water is around 100’ from our site and makes this park ideal for swimming; there are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks, there is a boat launch
  • The beach is 2 km long (ask Kathy and Linda H, they swam it!)
  • Tap water available beside site, however there are no power or water hookups
  • A flush toilet is located right beside our group site, just for group use.
  • A concrete block building with five showers and three flush toilets is a 2 min walk away
  • A concession trailer is sometimes operating in campground. Ice is available from Park Manager.
Watch for the blue listed California Bighorn Sheep on the side of the highway on your drive in. Note: There is quite a winding road from highway down to campground. Please contact Coordinator for all questions.
