Owner description: Measuring about 60 feet across, this natural spit of land stretches out into the middle of a lake providing views of both Canada and the United States.
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Because it is also a campsite, access to the lake is limited and I would like to see more chances to walk along the lake, and not just pass by campsites

Just a nice relaxing walk on the spit.You end up walking through the campgrounds. Maybe 45 min round trip.

Stayed there just for the one night. We reserved a week in advance, thanks god because it was the last spot available! The emplacement is just amazing, pretty much in the middle of the lake, wow! Our campground was right under a peach tree, so cool ! A Little cold because it's really windy on this peninsula. Sunset was stunning! Worth it. Would go back anytime!!

We stayed for 3 nights after the labour day weekend when all sites where first-come-first served. The campground is about 10 min outside of Osoyoos so we did a drive by at 8h30am to see what the place looked like. Glad we did as there were already 6 motorhomes circling the campground looking for a site. We lucked out a got a beach spot. Vehicles circled the campground looking for a spot every morning throughout the duration of our stay. If you come during the FCFS season, come early to try and get a spot!

We stayed on the North side of Haynes point on the beach. A nice spot but not much cover from the sun. Our sun shelter was invaluable, though be sure to pack it up at night as the campground can get very windy.

Swimming around the point is very cool. The point extends 90% accross the lake and is no more than 2 ft deep. Its really neat to walk out on a calm day.

We found the beach on the North side to be much more private than South, though the South side is more sandy. Being more private, the North side is better if you have a dog. The middle sites are best when its windy as they get much more shelter.

Love it, the heat of the southern Okanagan is great, Haynes Point campground surrounded by water rounds out this place perfectly. Most of the campsites are right on the water and the ones on the north side almost create the feel of having your own private beach on the lake. Most of the sites on the south side are on the 'public' beach access part.
Draw backs are (for RV'ers) no sanidump or water supply to fill your fresh tank. The closest spot is the Husky on the highway as you enter town from the north. The second is the turn off is easy to miss as it looks like (and is) a residential street, the park is at the end of the street. The last is nothing that can be changed, but watch out for high winds and roll up your awning if you are going away, it can get extremely windy at a moments notice.
Beautiful park in a beautifully unique part of BC.
