If you are a camper who likes a bit of privacy, peace and quiet to relax and unwind, this might not be the place for you. The spaces are incredibly small compared to other campgrounds I have stayed at, with other campers frequently walking through the small plot of land that is allocated to you rather than staying on the paths and roads. There are no firepits in each site, but you can build a campfire down by the beach. If, however, you like all of the amenities of home, this site might just be the place for you with electricity, fridges, blenders, computers, etc. seen around the site. For me it isn't my cup of tea, but for many others they seemed fine sacrificing some peace and privacy for these things.
The resort is very well run, spotlessly clean (especially the washrooms), on a beautiful warm lake close to town. The staff seemed very friendly, and compared to other campsites in Oliver, this is likely the best one. Most of the people camping there are very friendly as well, and it is family-oriented, with quiet hours that most people seem to respect (except for a few loud ones that were near us unfortunately and made it hard to sleep - not management's fault, just basic camping etiquette).
By far the setting on the lake is the draw to this resort, but for me if I was to return it would be to stay in the hotel type building rather than to camp.
