Banbury is located on beautiful Skaha Lake, and if you are lucky enough to get on the south side, its an amazing stay. We have camped here a few times now and while our stay has been OK, it has left something to be desired. The facilities, such as washroom, showers, and laundry room, are sadly outdated and not cleaned often enough. At the rates Banbury is charging, they should be able to give the facilities a makeover and clean more often, especially during peak times. From what I can see this is the highest rate for a campground and for what they offer, its too much. Add on that the customer service is terrible. We recently attempted to book a site for next summer, despite the facilities falling short of meeting basic needs, but was spoken to extremely rudely on the phone. I emailed at 12 am on Sept 5, the day the woman who works in the office said they would begin taking reservations, but was rudely told that all the sites I requested were already spoken for. Which leads me to believe that she is doing favours for other guests, as I find it impossible that that many people were also emailing at midnight and got their requests in before us. Overall the customer service is non existent. We wont bother spending money at this campground in the future. - Camper-4

The rating regarding the shower could have been just when I used it but it was full of hair and dirty. If you are a family camping just beware that campers can come and go into all hours of the night. It was an issue the second night when the parties showed up in the next two sites beside us. They were coming and going well past 1am and were up drinking until 3:30am. Not a lot of sound proofing in a tent trailer so, needless to say, we didn't get a lot of sleep. We spoke to the manager in the morning who said her son comes by until midnight but never saw him either night and he would have seen what was going on if he had. Wouldn't stay there again because they don't seem to enforce any sort of quiet time or have much of a presence. - This Family Camps

We have stayed many times at Banbury.
The good: the location - some spots are right on the lake, amenities are great - showers, washrooms, watercraft rentals, dog friendly, playground, close to town if you need anything.
The bad: We paid $55 a night last June for Father's Day weekend. We are locals. This is just too much money. Also - the management is rude. The customer service is poor. Nobody wanders around to check on things or see if people need anything or how their stay is. Once that office is closed, they are gone. - Smoresinsmalltowns

Fees are high for what is offered. No cable TV, no OTA TV channels. WiFi is so unreliable that it is unusable. No potable water as there is a permanent boil water advisory in effect. Dirt roads and parking lots make for very dusty conditions. One night as we were changing for bed we were startled by a light immediately outside our RV only to discover the manager manually watering the grass with a hose at 10:30 PM, well after dark. The male continued on to each site in our section manually watering until well past 11:00 PM. Apparently this is their procedure as it re-occurred two nights later. - All who wander are not lost

Can't say enough about the staff here and the care they take with the RV park. Wonderfully helpful and personable hosts. Campground is basic 30 amp. The sites are close together and it is a little tight but you get help from the host. The showers are old but clean and the water is hot. There is a large grassy area for the kids to play on and a small laundry. We will return. - saturn7

A little gem 15 min away from Penticton this park caters primarily to those who wish to golf at the Twin Lakes Golf course - a short walk away. The sites are a bit narrow with thick grass to separate neighbors. Electrical is limited to 30 amp. Communal campfire with supplied wood. Pull thrus and backin sites available. Very quiet at night. Facilities kept very clean and tidy. - GordieMac

The spots, and drive in for that matter, are tight. I made it to the office in a 37' motorhome, but there were a couple of tight turns. Our original spot would not accommodate us as the branches were too low, ended up in a beautiful spot with a view of the lake and vineyards across the lake. Still tight for getting slides and awning out. Staff was friendly and helpful in relocating us, would recommend the spots viewing the lake if available. These sites are pull-in forward sites in a motorhome. Staff was busy working on the grounds and pool, I would imagine this is a popular tent camping spot in the summer months. - Riptorn

The pictures on their website are not reflective of most of the sites at the campground. The only sites with grass are the tent sites, the rest is dirt. There wasn't enough room for both the slide and the awning, and the trees provided no shade. You could hear everything your neighbor was doing. We had to wait for all of our neighbors to get up to move their vehicles so that we could leave - the sites were so tight. They advertise free Wi-Fi - there was none. We will not be staying here again. - eeghost

The sites are very tight, if you have a pull out or an awning you have to choose which one you would like to use (if your site has enough room). The washrooms were clean; staff was friendly, pay showers and laundry. No pull through sites, mostly grassy sites (a little sparse in spots). Some road noise during the day but quiet at night. Small playground for kids and a small heated pool. Very scenic location. Fresh baking if pre-ordered the night before $. We paid $30 per night. The campsite charged our credit card for two nights six weeks before we arrived. We had reserved for three nights. Seems a little steep and definitely an overly early charge. Probably will not stay here again. - Retired Papa

At first, we were not impressed as the spaces seemed to be very close together, but we had to stay somewhere. We got an end space which was not too close to the adjacent site, and, being an end lot, did not have a crowded feeling. There are some sites next to the water, but these seemed to be all taken by long-term residents, of which there are quite a few. The price was certainly right for Canada when we had been paying $30 for dry camping in the Provincial Parks. This was an off-season rate; the price is much higher during prime season. The couple running the park were very nice, helpful, and accommodating, and provide free firewood for a group campfire in the evenings. We did not use the restrooms, but the laundry was clean and reasonably priced. The campground is right behind the local IGA grocery, which is very convenient. A very nice bike path starts just across the street in a pleasant park. Even though it is in the heart of the city and only a block from the main road, it was nice and quiet at night. Our Verizon phone worked well; we could not get satellite from our site because of the trees. The WiFi signal was strong at our site and fast. The campground is open April 15 - October 15. Even during our off-season stay the campground filled so getting there early or reservations would be advisable. If we were in the area and looking for a campground with hookups, we would definitely choose this park again. - TheJim

There are no amenities but the park is right on the main street and can handle big rigs. The owner keeps the place very clean. The park is two blocks from the lake. Not much to see or do in this town but it is close to Penticton. - Carly

This is just a vacant parking lot! Sites are non existent - just empty parking spaces with hookups added. YUK. - B&M

The park is extremely clean. Gravel sites with a small patch of lawn on each site. Wide enough for four slides. Very friendly owner. Walking distance to shopping and the downtown area. Two blocks to the lake. The park does not have any recreation but the town itself does. - Carly

Another stay at this park is always nice. Thought I would add a few more coments. No changes as far as a well run place with friendly staff operating the park. "Cash only" no credit card and no exchange rate for US DOLLAR I was told by park staff. - GerryT

Park is small (25 sites), and well maintained. Not all sites are big rig friendly. Quiet and spacious. Have stayed here a few times and enjoy it as a base for activities in the area. - GerryT

This a small park that has recently changed it's name and is operated by the Osoyoos Indian Band. The new name has characters that computers will not accept, but I have posted a picture of the park sign. It's located by the river which has wonderful bird wildlife, and far enough off the highway that there is very little noise at night. Sites are gravel, spacious, sunny/open to some shade, and include a fire ring and picnic table. A walking/biking trail runs right through the park which can take you north towards Penticton or south towards Oliver for many miles. The Park hosts are great and maintain it very well. We would certainly stay here again. - Snoet

The park has come up in my estimation from the last time we visited. We have been here many times. The manager that is so mean and rude to everyone seems to not be here. There are also a group of people on golf carts cleaning and running around working on projects. There appears to be a full time caretaker on site. Things still need to be fixed, repaired and remodeled, but there are signs of life and improvement. There are little public gardens around, some of the roads have been leveled a bit, there are group activities for kids and movies at night. The biggest improvement by far is attitude and the change in managers. I hope that is the case, perhaps they even have new ownership. We parked next to the WiFi antenna and still no WiFi, have never been able to get WiFi at Wright's Beach. Verizon (Telus or Bell in BC) was working poorly also but worked in town. It is remarkable to us that the RV parks in Penticton are so poor with such rude, frustrated and tired managers. If our family was not here, we would not stay in this town. - saturn7

Very nice camp site and many things to do. They had a pool and arcade for the kids along with activities every day in the activity area. Monday and Friday movies for the kids in the activity area. Every day they would have a contest for free ice cream for the kids. Also, they have a boat rental to rent out kayaks, and canoes, along with motor boats etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Being right on the beach is nice and also having a KVR trail that goes along the beach all the way to OK Falls. This was a very nice experience! I would recommend this campsite. - Max-and-Mow

Have stayed here for the last 3 years. The location and beach access is the draw. The hired staff are very nice and helpful for the most part but seem to fear the Boss's.
The showers facilities are in need of an overall and renovation. Clean for the most part. Laundry machines hardly work.
We have met some great people vacationing there over the time we have spent here Although ... the reoccurring discussion this year among many is how rude and unaccommodating the owners are. If you don't mind being spoken to in a condescending manner by the manager and owners as if you"re a five year old and worried about which rule of their "many" that you might be breaking then you might accept the location.
The list of rules would be shorter of what you Can do - opposed to what you Can't do.
They charge for every little thing and act like they are doing you a great service out of the norm. The attitude of the management is unsettling and rude.
They give you EVERY reason to look elsewhere to stay but again... they know they have the convenient spot across from the beach. - Camper K

This park is nice that you are right across the road from the beach. As is typical with many RV parks in this area, it is old and grey. Sites are a bit narrow and limited options if you are over 30'. It only has 30amp, cable TV with about 20 channels (mostly Canadian), and sewer is a bit tough to get connected to as it is surrounded by a 6" concrete barrier. This time of year (late May) the park has a lot of sap and thorns that are constantly getting tracked into the RV. - sheltieRV

We have stayed here before. This time we received a poor reception from the manager, long lecture and rules about the dog. You can't leave your dog in the RV and of course must poop scoop. Any infraction at all and you will be asked to leave the park. I was disappointed in the poor welcome when we were just arriving. I think people are sick of dogs and bad owners who won't clean up after them and leave them to bark. Our dog was quiet the entire time, but a drunk man in a van pulled in, passed out and left his radio on loud until I finally had to get the manager to reach in and turn off the engine as I wanted to get some sleep. There are droppings from trees that stick to your shoes and come into your rig. We will return but I frankly wish we had had a better reception. - saturn7

We have been on the road in our motor home for four months and have been warmly greeted by so many rv parks in Canada and Alaska. When we arrived at Oxbow RV park instead of a warm welcome, we were greeted with a lecture because we had the audacity to arrive at 12:05 and check in was at 1:00 which they didn't tell us when we made the reservation. We almost left and went elsewhere, but decided to go ahead and stay. The park is fine, site was a little tight and very difficult to get out of. There are a lot of trees which make it quite pretty, but a little messy. We couldn't get our cable to work so we went to the office and were informed that we had to get a box from them - you'd think they might have told us that at check in. I think the people who own this park may be in the wrong business! - Admiral II

Spent 5 days here in late June. Campground is well taken care of and owners are picky. It is a bit noisy as you're right on the road but has great walking access to Skaha Lake beaches across the road. Site was quite open but comfortable. Concrete or with patio table made for a clean site.
Rate is close to the highest we've ever paid and seems a little overpriced. - Criscamp

Check in was pleasant, lady cordial and helpful with local info. Man directed me to site and helped me when backing in. Had to park tow vehicle in front parallel to road so not to block traffic. I have a mini for a tow so small but did observe some larger vehicles somewhat blocking roadway. Roadway is narrow and traffic is allowed both ways so could be a problem if 2 RVs met at the same time along with parked vehicles in front of sites. We had to use a cable box provided to get TV. Did not use their wifi. I would stay here again on my next visit thru BC when in this area. - petvet

Quiet and secluded, sites are tight for longer rigs but the scenery and wildlife are amazing. We were the only folks in the campground - a hidden gem. - Janet H

Stayed at this non-reserve camp to visit the "bird preserve center" shown on wildlife books. This turned out to be nothing more than a kiosk and a short boardwalk on the north end of the lake. We saw no birds during a mid June visit. Campsites can be tricky for bigger rigs. Camp hosts were great. Pretty sites, but road noise is bad. - G&S Smith

This was our favorite place during our 10 day trip. Very nice scenery. Lots of birds!!! Friendly camp host. Otters played at the lake during the night. - hakristi
