Back Forty Vineyards

Come camp on a 40-acre parcel backing onto crown land mountains and wake up in front of 10 acres of vineyard and a view of Okanagan Lake! Outhouse on the property and it is a working farm so will likely have various equipment around at times as well as workers at certain times of the year. You’ll likely meet our very friendly and very energetic Bernedoodle, Bernie. If you prefer to keep him out of your campsite just let us know and we can keep him closer. Otherwise, he thinks he has the run of the place! Please check to see if campfires are allowed (live in a high-risk fire zone) and firewood is available with an extra charge. If you need anything to better enjoy your stay, just let us know!Our property is located in Peachland, BC. Positioned midway between Kelowna and Pentiction, it is the perfect location to draw from both population centres and is well-positioned to act as a hub for popular wine and other agri-tourism activities. Peachland is within easy reach of over 200 estate wineries and microbreweries.

Camping near Kelowna guide

Overview

Located near the geographic centre of the Okanagan Valley, Kelowna’s reliable sunny weather and breezy lakeside vacation make it a favorite with campers throughout western Canada. Summer water sports like swimming, tubing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, water skiing, and stand-up paddling are all on deck from sunrise to sunset. The town’s population swells in summer, but there’s room for everyone to spread out.

Where to go

Where to Go

Okanagan Lake (Highway 97)

Waterfront campgrounds have been replaced by luxury hotels, but there are still a few places where you can roll up and camp on the shores of one of the region’s six lakes. you can often find a remote waterfront campsite by renting a motorboat or even a canoe early in the day.

West Side of Okanagan Lake

Highway 97 is the valley’s main thoroughfare, but the narrow, twisty, and scenic Westside (or Fintry) Road leads to some of the region’s most secluded and picturesque campgrounds.

Area Fishing Lakes

Dozens of small fishing lakes dot the forested Okanagan Highlands to the north and south of Kelowna. These private campgrounds and BC Forest Service sites are often located on gravel backroads—campers need to be completely self-sufficient. 

When to go

July and August are the ‘hot months,’ both in terms of temperature and popularity. In late spring, the valley’s orchards are a riot of color thanks to blooming cherry and apple trees. Fall is harvest time, specifically for the hundreds of wineries that make Kelowna the “Napa Valley of the North.” The fall bounty is celebrated during the annual Okanagan Fall Wine Festival held each October. Campers in spring and fall should definitely pack puffy parkas for extra warmth on chilly nights. 

Know before you go

  • Campground reservations are pretty much required, especially on summer weekends.
  • As the largest city in the Okanagan (and third-largest in BC), Kelowna has all of the retail and professional services that every camper needs (think Costco, Wal-Mart, Mountain Equipment Co-op and Canadian Tire).
  • Motorboats and jet skis are allowed on Okanagan Lake, but there are nearby lakes and beaches that don’t allow motorized watercraft.
  • Fire bans are often in effect during the dry summer months.

Nearby attractions

For a refreshing, serene getaway, camping near Johnson Lake is a must. Plunge into the crystal clear waters and enjoy the unique Johnson Lake camping experience, full of relaxing swims, calming nature trails, and enchanting lakeside picnics.
