Boat Camping – The Okanagan

What is the second best thing to do in the Okanagan?

Well, if you are a camper and have  boat I would say its boat camping. A lot of people have no idea that this exists on the lake and for the ones that do, your private sanctuary for the weekend. Most sites have there own mooring ball, picnic table and fire pits. In total, there is seven sites (located below) so bring your wakeboards, skis tubes and lots of towels, good times await!

Walk-In/Backcountry/Marine/Wilderness Camping

Wilderness camping is allowed at Baker Lake and Divide Lake, where limited facilities like pit toilets and fire rings are provided. There are 7 marine boat-in campgrounds; Buchan Bay, Commando Bay, Goode’s Creek, Van Hyce Beach, Reluctant Dragon Cove, Halfway Bay and Halfway Point along the lake. Additional camping is allowed at the South parking lot where there are two tables, two fire rings, space for two tents (no tent pads) and a pit toilet.

Mooring of uninhabited vessels is not permitted at anytime within the park. Vessels that are found uninhabited, tied to a mooring buoy or tied on shore could be impounded and removed at the owners expense. For additional information on mooring and marine concerns, please contact the area supervisor directly for clarification if needed.

Backcountry Marine Camping Fee: $13.00 per party or vessel/night
