As an experienced RV traveler, we were hesitant to stay at this RV park due to its "run down" look. We have always stayed at the Impeccable Park Royal RV beside the Ogopogo RV but it was full, and as we were taking our 4 young grandchildren, the lure of a pool made it happen.
The "new managers "started Sept/12" were very helpful and friendly which I gather was not the case of the previous ones. It is definitely a work in progress as many repairs were needed in the washrooms and around the park (has cable but many outlets were broken off for connection). The sites needed cleanup (many cig butts, bottle caps etc) after the last customers.
Overall, it was acceptable considering the fact if you want to stay on the Okanogan Lake side of Penticton, you only have Park Royal and Ogopogo to chose from. We would stay there again but would ask for a space on the side next to Park Royal as the new shopping centre on the other side can get noisy in the early morning.
