During peak season, a selection of non-reservable First Come First Serve Sites are available at all campgrounds, except at Bear Creek, Okanagan Lake North & South, Otter Lake and Ellison. Although there are no guarantees, it is best to arrive at the park before noon and before the weekend, if possible, to check for availability. Check-out time at all parks is 11am, therefore, if a guest is checking out then, you can move in to the site after they leave. If a campsite is unoccupied, doesn’t have a ‘reserved’ tag on it, and there is nothing in the site, you may also occupy it. Please ensure that you physically have something ON the site in order to claim it (ie. a tent set-up, trailer).
A FEW EXCEPTIONS TO THIS: At Okanagan Lake South Park & Bear Creek, you must check at Gatehouse for campsite availability. At Mabel Lake, Ellison, Fintry & Kekuli Bay, you must add your name to a First Come First Serve Waitlist and be registered in the Overflow Camping area already.
