Where to Camp in Kelowna: Provincial Parks, Rec Sites, RV Parks, Wilderness Resorts + More

Ready to go camping in Kelowna? You’re gonna love it! There are a lot camping options in the Kelowna area, ranging from super rustic rec sites to full-on glamping. No matter your camping style, there’s somewhere for you to camp and love it!

Below, you’ll find a huuuuge list of camping options around Kelowna. They’re broken down into camping styles — provincial parks, rec sites, Hipcamps, resorts, and RV parks — so that you can easily jump to the camping type you’re most interested in.

There are, of course, many more camping options in the Okanagan. These campgrounds are limited to the Kelowna area, including Peachland, Lake Country, and Oyama (with a few select outliers).

If you want to find camping in the rest of the Okanagan, I can’t recommend Backroad Mapbooks Thompson Okanagan or their online membership enough — it’s an amazing resource for backcountry camping in Canada.


Please keep in mind that, while I do my best to provide the most up-to-date information, including fees, dates, amenities, and more, there may be a discrepancy between what’s posted here and the campground. Always refer to the official website to confirm details.

Camping Resources

Before we get into all of the camping options in Kelowna, here are two of my favourite camping resources that will be very helpful to you on your adventures.

Sani-Dump Guide

The availability of sani-dumps throughout the Okanagan varies a lot. If you have an RV, trailer, or van, it’s important to know where you can empty your tanks.

This 1000+ page guide has information about all of the sani-dumps in Canada, including fees, location, open dates, and more. No more searching for where to dump (or wondering if you’ll fit). It’s an extremely useful guide to have in your back pocket!

Backroad Mapbooks

Backroad Mapbooks is one of my absolute favourite resources for finding camping and fun things to do. I use it all the time!

It’s especially useful if you want to find backcountry rec sites, roads, or activities. I honestly had no idea how many rec sites are around Kelowna before I used the maps (hint: there are a shit ton). They have physical maps, GPS information, and online memberships.

For the Kelowna area, grab the Thompson Okanagan edition. There are also maps for the rest of BC and Canada. Seriously, they’re awesome!

Provincial Parks Near Kelowna

Provincial parks in the Okanagan are fairly private (especially compared to most RV parks), well-maintained, and close to cool things to do. The size, privacy, and “nature” of each campground differs quite a lot, so it’s important to research each to know what style of camping is offered at each park.

Below, you’ll find provincial parks within 1.5 hours of Kelowna where you can camp. Provincial parks that don’t have camping, such as Myra-Bellevue and Kalamalka Provincial Parks, aren’t included.

Most (but not all) of the following provincial parks can be booked at BCParks.ca. Some parks have limited or 100% FCFS (first come first served) or RV/trailer warnings.

I highly recommend camping reservations for provincial parks — especially in the summer or long weekends. The Okanagan is usually easier to reserve campsites than the Lower Mainland, but it’s best to book as far in advance as you can. Book online at BCParks.ca up to two months in advance.

PS: Tired of figuring out where the nearest sani-dump is? This 1000+ page guide lists every sani-dump in Canada (and the USA) and is a huge headache-saving resource.

Recreation Sites Near Kelowna

There are a lot of recreation sites in the Kelowna area. If you want to explore the Okanagan’s backcountry, truly escape the city, and enjoy the serenity of nature, camping at recreation sites is the way to go.

Rec sites are off-the-beaten path, semi-maintained forestry and recreation areas. They’re rustic and provide very few amenities ⁠— usually only pit toilets and picnic tables.

Access is often via narrow, bumpy, semi-maintained forest roads. Below, you’ll find approximate driving time from Kelowna, but it may take you longer to reach the rec sites depending on road conditions and your vehicle’s capabilities.

Rec camping sites are first-come first served (and often free) which make them great options if you can’t get a reservation elsewhere. Most rec sites only have a few campsites, but because they’re not very accessible, they’re nowhere as busy as other camping in the area.

Most people aren’t aware of how many rec sites there are in Kelowna (and the Okanagan) — spoiler, there are A LOT!

If you want to find even more rec sites and cool places to camp, I highly recommend getting the Backroad Mapbooks Thompson Okanagan or joining their online membership. I used BRMB to find most of these rec sites, plus more that aren’t included here (it was getting long so I cut a few).

RV Parks in Kelowna

There are fourteen RV parks in Kelowna (that I know of) and most of them are on agri-tourism land. This means the campground is a working farm — usually veggies, fruit, and/or chickens — with only a few RV sites and located on an orchard or farmland.

I’ve included all of the Kelowna RV parks (even the ones with iffy reviews) so you know all of your options. Please read reviews before reserving.

Acres RV Park ★

Acres RV Park is located on the north end of Kelowna, surrounded by orchards and vineyards. It’s a quiet, peaceful area and is a distance from Okanagan Lake.

Except for full hookups, there are no on-site amenities or things to do. You can, however, go on long walks in the orchards or play lawn games.

Views from the campsites are great and it doesn’t feel like you’re in the middle of the Okanagan’s biggest city. Sit back and enjoy your camping trip!

The gravel, pull-through pads are well landscaped and have small grass areas, but there isn’t a lot of privacy or tree cover. As the landscaping matures, that’ll change.

The RV park is located on farmland, but don’t expect to see horses and goats running around. Kelowna Urban Farm has seven acres of veggies, berries, free-range egg and meat hens, as well as a small honey bee apiary.

RV Parks in West Kelowna

West Kelowna is located across Okanagan Lake from Kelowna and is a close enough to Kelowna to easily use its campgrounds as a base for exploring.

Compared to Kelowna, West Kelowna has remarkably fewer RV parks — only four and all very much feel like you’re in town.

Okanagan RV Park

Okanagan RV Park is located in West Kelowna. It’s just off Highway 97, the main highway through the Okanagan, and beside a commercial gas station for semis. Road noise is a major issue.

The Orchard RV Retreat

The Orchard RV Retreat is located in the hills between Lake Couontry and Oyama. It’s on a working orchard and has wonderful views of Wood Lake.

This RV park doesn’t have traditional gravel sites, but rather designated grassy pull-offs. Sites have fire rings and picnic tables. There isn’t a lot of privacy between sites, but they are well spaced and quiet.

The owners are friendly and take great care to provide excellent service and maintain their facilities.

RV Parks in Peachland

Peachland is a small lakeside community that’s 20 minutes from Kelowna (provided traffic doesn’t suck).

Peachland is beautiful, but it doesn’t offer many places to camp, especially with an RV. You really only have two choices and, luckily, they’re both good options.

Peachland RV Park ★

Peachland RV Park is a new, in development RV park located just outside of Peachland above the Okanagan Connector highway.

The park itself is quite isolated in the forest and is well maintained. Sites are large and there’s plenty of space between campsites.

There’s a decent amount of shade and privacy from the mature trees and underbrush — certainly more than other RV parks in the area.

Price$49 – $59 night
Site Details• Full hookup (sewer, water, and 30/50 amp electrical)
• Decent amount of shade and privacy
• Large, gravel sites
• Wifi + cable
Park Details• New RV park
• 81 sites
• Bathrooms, showers + laundry under construction
• Located in the forest
• Mature trees and underbrush
