As a camping destination, the Thompson Okanagan can't be beat.
Hot, summer days are common, and activities range from winery tours to wilderness adventures. And the campgrounds? They're everywhere: next to lakes, mountains, golf courses, beaches – even in Canada's only desert.
Hike through wilderness to backcountry campsites in parks such as Cathedral Provincial Park and Wells Gray Provincial Park. Or, for a less strenuous experience, find RV and tenting sites near the shores of local waters, such as Skaha, Shuswap or Okanagan lakes.
