15 RV Parks near Malakwa, British Columbia
Jul 2017 - $40.00
Park is located 15 minutes from Sicamous, BC which is great if you need fuel or supplies. I was given a 30 Amp FHU dirt site for my 42' 5th wheel. Just enough room for my RV on the site and I was able to park my truck next to the RV. There is no cable, antenna, or dish service for the TV. The laundry is clean and the bathrooms are so so. There is road noise from the hwy. There is no wi-fi and you will have to have your own hot-spot. You aren't to close to your neighbor and you have a picnic table and fire ring at your site. - Piperflyer 235

Campground about 6 miles east of Sicamous on Hwy 1. Campground is older and first impression not that great. However all campsites are spacious, fairly level pull throughs with fire pits and picnic tables. Bring a broom because this is camping not resort RVing. A little tight navigating large units in and around campground. Campground has great walking paths, actually saw a bear twice. Indoor pool and playground for the kids. Traffic noise is audible as right next to busy Hwy 1. - MapReader

It was a very nice stay. Easy to get into, quiet. We didn't use the shower or washroom facilities or the pool. There were great hiking trails around. We were only there for a couple of nights. Would be helpful if they fixed the sign on the highway, we almost drove by the campground. - eeghost

This campground is an ongoing reconfiguration of some other use property and is still a little rough around the edges. For example, their dump station is at a different location accessed from another highway turnoff. The property has hot springs pools, boardwalk to swinging bridge and waterfall-- all accessed for additional fees. Campers get a 10% discount for these attractions.
They offer 15 amp/water back-in sites for $35 CAD and 30 amp/water back-in and pull-through sites for $44 CAD. Our gravel pull-through site was accessed by driving across a small grass rise, and could be problematic in wet weather. The free WiFi was easily bogged down in the evenings but OK at other times. We had no cell service (AT&T/Rogers) and there were no off air broadcast TV channels. Satellite access would not be a problem in the pull-through sites area. There was some noise from the trans Canada highway 1, but it seemed to taper off at night.
The interior campground road was dirt/clay but was in relatively good condition. Campground registration was at the hot pool check-in desk adjacent to a large gravel parking lot and there was signage to direct you there from the highway turnoff. The dump station was in the middle of a large gravel lot about 1/4 mile east off the highway down a narrow, curving driveway. - readontheroad

A great spot to stop along the Trans-Canada near Sicamous, BC. The camp host reports that they have sites available most nights and I was very pleased with our site being level and suited to our 43ft motorhome and tow car. At only $20/nt (CDN), it's good value and a safe place off the highway. Quiet hours from 10PM to 7AM. - Ron_H

The rate shown is in Cdn $ and before the KOA member discount. I paid using my KOA points so my actual cost was $0. This is conveniently located on the Trans Canada Highway just east of Sicamous. Being so convenient there was highway noise but that does die down late in the evening. Also not too far from the obligatory railroad but that didn't cause us any problem. Check-in was relatively painless even though we had no reservation. The receptionist was fairly new and under instruction but she did a good job and was pleasant. However, I didn't get any KOA literature or plan of the park so had no idea where anything was. Neither did we get an escort to our site or wi-fi code but as this was a one-night stop it wasn't a major problem and I used my Telus hotspot. We were given site 100. A very private site, tucked in to the back corner of the park and about the furthest point away from the TCH. It was a gravel & dirt site, fairly level and pretty wide - enough for opposing slides. Long enough for a 40' 5er and 23' F350 truck. Equipped with a picnic table, fire pit, 30amp power, water & sewer. All well positioned but no breaker on post and had to walk to the office to get staff to re-set after it tripped. Interior roads are dust & dirt. Even at walking speed I kicked up a lot of dust towing to the site. The back row was very poorly lit - non existent. Without a layout I set out to locate the washrooms - only one set for the CG - I believe. Fairly clean but the showers looked dated and the kind that are very difficult to keep clean - looking at these. Bathroom stalls are wide for disabled access but I didn't see any grab bars to help. They offer curbside trash pickup There is a pool, children's play area and an all you can eat daily pancake breakfast for $5.95 (incl drinks ) - bacon extra $ Good for an overnight stop but that would be it - for us anyway. - Hutch333id

This park is dusty and weathered. Sometimes I just don't understand KOA. They are very well known and yet they nickel and dime everything. Expensive laundry with only cold water. All the washers were empty. I would think they would provide excellent services for this kind of money so they would be used. Wi Fi is only available in the club house. If I wanted to fill up my campground during August and make my money for the summer I would offer good deals to my customers, so they would keep coming back and so I would fill up the place every night. Word of mouth is gold. - saturn7

This was an overnight stop for us. We called the night before and even in the busiest season they found us a spot. The roads are tight for big rigs and our site had the stump (3 ft. high) in the middle. It was a left over of one of the very few trees they have cut down. Our site was level. - Rd yacht

We called day before and asked about early check in and were advised no problem, not very busy. Arrived @ noon and no one around. Waited for 1/2 hour before owner showed up. No apology offered. Wifi only outside office where the tent and chairs are too filthy to sit in and then there is the battle with mosquitoes. Wifi was sporadic so went to library in town. On hooking up water it was a rusty brown color. I ran it for a few minutes with no change. Owner advised water is potable, however, there is a leak in the system which is why the water is discolored. Claims water samples are tested weekly. Had to buy drinking water while there as water did not taste good.
We were advised to let owner know if we wanted to use laundry so she could run water through system so clothes didn't get discolored. Wash $4.00 and dry $4.00. Most expensive we've come across. We used laundromat in town. Roads are gravel with significant potholes which were filled with water. Sites are generally level and owners allows you to drive on grass to create a pull through for some sites. - Neil and Sue

This campground is located very close to Highway 1 so there is lots of traffic noise during the day but it dies down at night. We would stay here again as an overnight stop on the way. They also have cabins for rent. - Idletime

This is a small campground behind a restaurant (Trip Advisor rated #1 in town) and A frame cabins adjacent to river. The 7 full hookup sites and about a dozen no hookup sites are arranged roughly in a circle around a large gravel courtyard. The full hookup sites are bordered by evergreen hedges and the dry camping sites are on a grassy crescent above the river.
Campsites were fairly protected from highway noise and the traffic thinned out at night. There is a dump station and very unusual airconditioned two suite bathroom/shower trailer. The campground office is on the side the white house behind the restaurant.
The Free WiFi was excellent. We had 4 bar cell signal (AT&T/Rogers), no off air TV channels or cable. - readontheroad

Nice, clean, and quiet little campground. Wanted full hookups, but none were left for the night so they gave us 15A & water for the no service rate of $32. Had breakfast at the adjoining restaurant. Good home cooking. - BigChev

First of all let me say the people were very helpful and courteous. And my rating is based merely on the non-big rig-friendliness. We had a 40 foot motoerhome and the only sites that would accommodate this size were filthy. A dust storm was created by any movement by anyone in the area. WiFi was only useful in the lobby and tv reception was non existent. This is not an RV Park, it's a campground at best. In addition it is 30 minutes outside of Revelstoke. - Bill Dut

We stayed 4 nights in a 38 ft fifth wheel. Nice sites. The people who own the park are very helpful and friendly. The campground needs a little work and updating. The picnic tables need to be fixed and are needing repair. Beautiful setting as long as you don't mind some road noise. Didn't bother us. Cute cabins to rent also. The have a covered area to meet with some not really good shape BBQs, but works. Coffee bar available. Close to attractions and towns. Would probably stay here again. The campground is up for sale. - Brulin

Sites tight, awning almost in neighbours site. Sites not level, could be wet if we were not in the middle of a drought. Owners friendly, rate is high for what you get, they charged extra for having our 2 grandkids with us, 3.00 each.Traffic noise from highway. Playground is pretty ratty. It is close to Enchanted Forest amusement area. That was the draw for us staying there. - wclogger1

It is definitely off the beaten path...and there in lies the rub - getting to this place is more of a challenge. For us in the truck it was 2hrs of dilapidated logging roads, some sections fine - tho mostly dicey and curvy, and NOT wide enough for 2 vehicles to pass comfortably. I would not recommend bringing anything larger than a simple standard size pull type [which "i" still would not do!] but its a beautiful fairly pristine spot. Less people during the week but it fills with party-ers especially on holiday weekends. We only camped for a day - plan was weekend but the revelers were way too noisy. We had stayed before any management staff had yet been assigned for the season - so it was sort of anarchistic. We still enjoyed the practically private beach [for tent-ers] and there were some really interesting paths through out the park. Great area for BIG dogs - why I felt safe for one night. - livin4RV

This Recreation Site is almost Provincial Park quality @ a great price. Some sites are right on Mabel Lake and offer great views and access to fishing or other water activities. Some sites are small but most accommodate larger RV's. The road to the site is about 28 km's of gravel (or mud) after you leave the pavement. The last few km's are very steep down to the lake. Well worth the trip. Will definitely go again. - lrp374

A nice park with a well kept pool and activities for kids, including a tractor pull ride at 6:30 in the evening. Although the park is on a two-lane highway, the creek running along the backside provides a soothing noise break for the sites backing on it. We were in a full-service 30 amp site backing on the creek, and had some power problems, but the entire region was experiencing power overloads due to the heat, and there was a total blackout for about an hour. We're in our 60's, but still enjoyed the family atmosphere. The owners are new (April 2017) and they are great. They are making improvements at a rapid pace, and I expect the park will only get better. - J Mike G

This campground is great place to come for an extended visit to the Shuswap region because it is located in such a great part of the area. The park is located 5 minutes from the provincial beach and only 15 km from Sicamous. The park was always clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed for 10 days and loved it. - strathmoreman

This Provincial Park is about 9 miles outside of Salmon Arm with about 6 miles on a fairly narrow winding road. The park is heavily treed and, even though it is on a lake, only a few of the sites have a distant view of the lake. The sites are well separated and the vegetation provides good privacy. There are some nice hiking trails. There is fresh water fill and a dump station for an extra fee of $5.00. There are fresh water taps throughout the campground, but they do not have threads for a hose to fill a tank. The only issue with this campground is that $30 is a bit steep for a dry campsite, especially when you add in the extra fee for the dump station use. The attendant comes around to collect the fee and sell firewood for $7 for a fairly small bundle. Our Verizon phone did not have a signal. With a lot of work we found a site where we could get satellite. Even with the high price, we might stay here again. - TheJim

Some large sites. Our total length is 63' and we fit into site 77 with plenty of room to spare. Absolutely beautiful park with plenty of beach areas. Great hiking...our favorite was to Margaret Falls--a short and fairly easy walk to beautiful falls. For the more advanced hiker, take the canyon trail...a good hike with spectacular views of the lake. Only downside--trees along the roads and entrance to some sites need trimming. - Babas

We camped here on the Labour Day Long Weekend. We reserved our site 3 months in advance, because this is one very busy and popular campground. It was full right from Friday until Sunday, when most of the Albertians headed home. The firewood is $5/bundle and very dry. There is a wonderful hiking trail to the Waterfall. There is a Sani-dump on site, and pipestands (water spigots) are all over the campground. We are planning on returning next year. - PavementPilot
