“Great RV Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2011

We stopped here for 3 nights with our RV. Very quiet and the sites are amazing. Lush with trees (huge Cedars all over), and it was very spacious. Called a couple of days early to book a spot and was told there was only 2 left. Seems to be lots of spots, and the one they gave us was definitely NOT the best (in fact it is the only one I would not choose). Asked to move the second day and it was not a problem. Mosquitoes are bad, and was told that is due to high lake levels, but on a walk we noticed lots of standing water nearby. If it is a mosquito year, then this place will definitely be swarming.

Wireless internet was great, but did notice some people from the back of the park coming closer to the office to get reception. I would suggest sites 50, 52, 27-31.

Stayed July 2011, travelled with family

Thank you for writing a review! I apologize for the delayed response. We have just joined the world of the living when it comes to "Trip Advisor"

We are glad you enjoyed your visit. I wanted to let you know that we have recently updated our wireless service - it's more powerful now. Also we have taken action against the mosquito population by opening up the forest canopy a bit in the camping section and filling in the smaller depressions where there was standing water.

Looking forward to seeing you again!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2006

We rented one of the motel cabins with no kitchen facilities. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable enough. They advertize a hot tub but it is located in a small gazebo next to a dense wooded and brush area that was rife with mosquitoes. I had to walk swiftly from the room to the office to keep from being bitten up by mosquitoes. We could not find their private beach. The public beach is at the other end of the ajoining mile long grass strip airport runway. A helicopter took off about 5 am but I did not hear it since the cabins seem to be substantially built. There is no telephone and one channel of TV. Forget internet of any kind. The campground was full in July. There are a couple of B&B's in the area. one just a block from the ferry that I would try next time. If you land your plane there you better check first if the deer are off the runway.

Hi Easy Does It,
I know that you wrote your review in 2006 - but Kokanee Chalets has just become an official participant in Trip Advisor. Before we did not have the technological know how. Now we do :)

I wanted to let you know about updates that have been made since your stay.

1. The forest canopy in the camping area and around the hot tub gazebo / playground has been opened up by removing some of the vegetation and trees. It has been replanted with grass and lets a lot more light in. This has substancially reduced the mosquito population.

2. We now have powerful wireless high speed internet for our resort.

3. There still aren't phone lines in the chalets but we have good cell phone reception :)

We hope that you'll come back and try us again - it's been 7 years of work and effort to make Kokanee Chalets better and better.

Thank you again for your valuable feedback,
