Back Forty Vineyards

2 sites · RVs, Tents40 acres · Peachland, BC
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.

Cozy Cabin sleeps 10 with hot tub

1 site · Lodging1 acre · Kelowna, BC
2 minutes away from the Kelowna Nordic Ski and Snowshoe Club and 20 minutes from Big White!!!! This brand new, eco-friendly waterfront chalet is situated right on Hydraulic Lake. Private and secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city, but a short drive to every possible amenity. Only 30 minutes from groceries, bistros, and restaurants, 40 minutes from Downtown Kelowna and 15 minutes to the first lift at Big White. Or explore the nearby Kettle Valley Rail Trail and Kelowna Nordic Centre! This gorgeous home boasts soaring 23 foot cathedral ceilings with floor to ceiling windows that showcase the unobstructed lake view. On the open concept main floor there is a beautiful real-stone fireplace, modern bright kitchen with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, 1 powder room, washer and dryer, living room (with a pullout sofa-bed) and a giant master bedroom with a crib for families travelling with a baby, a walk-in closet and a luxury ensuite bathroom with a giant standup shower. The upper level open-loft offers another comfortable seating area to enjoy the stunning view. The upstairs area also includes a full washroom, a very large second bedroom with a queen sized bed. There is a smaller - yet functional third bedroom with a twin over double bunk bed (sleeps 3). The upstairs sofa also converts to a twin size bed. Outside you’ll enjoy year round unobstructed views of the lake, a private hot tub, a natural gas barbecue and a wrap around covered deck. Regardless of which season you are visiting, you will not be disappointed with the breathtaking panoramic view! This Whistler type Chalet Panabode style home will give you the feeling of being one with nature, but with all the modern luxury finishes, with 4 season activities at your doorstep! Winter fun: Big White ski lift is only 15 minutes away! The ski resort has been really well designed , it offers fabulous ski-in ski-out convenience, includes shops, cute bars and restaurants, and other facilities. There are many other activities to enjoy including tubing for the kids. For the cross county skiing or snowshoeing enthusiasts, you are steps away from the unlimited paths of the Kelowna Nordic Ski and Snowshoe Club! The Kelowna Nordic Ski and Snowshoe Club has been providing a unique ski experience since 1977. Rustic facilities, friendly club members, and 75 km of beautiful wooded ski trails, coupled with state-of-the-art grooming and track-setting, define the club. The icing on the cake is the 65 km of snowshoe trails, many with panoramic views. I have 3 sets of snowshoes available at the cabing for gusts use. Please feel free to use them! They are are suitable for individuals weighing between 70lbs to 275lbs. Being steps away from the lake has its winter benefits! If you are interested in ice-fishing, Mccullogh lake is known for its rainbow trout and kokanee. I do provide an auger and basic fishing gear and I respectfully request that only those familiar with its operation use it. For summer fun: Those of you who enjoy hiking, biking or walking will be thrilled as the chalet is located on the Kettle Valley Trail with the backdrop of Myra Canyon. After more than a century since the first tracks were laid, the KVR routes are alive and well, though not in the way that was first envisioned. The route loops through 500km of beautiful southern BC terrain, and has been converted into a walking, hiking and biking trail. There are several access points for the trail steps from your door on McCulloch Lake. Being close to the water in the summer months, definitely has it perks as well! On those hot summer days you can cool off with a refreshing dip in the clean fresh lake. Fell free to also use the provided Kayak, paddleboard or the aluminum boat, electric motor and basic fishing gear. Life vests are provided for guest wanting to take advantage of the water vessels. It is also important to mention that in British Columbia, fishing licences are mandatory. Please do not use the fishing gear if you have not obtained a license. You can apply for a daily permit online. This is a very small family orientated community that was built with nature in mind. Its a beautiful place to unwind and enjoy what the area has to offer. The cell service and wifi connection are limited. Noise bylaws are in effect. Please ensure you are speaking quietly while outside anytime after 10pm. Sound really travels over the water. Remember to be respectful of your neighbours :) Please take note that the cell and internet service isn’t the best up at the lake. The chalet is a place to unplug and relax :) Rogers and Fido seem to have the best connection.

Camping near Penticton guide

Overview

At the center of the Okanagan Valley, which runs more than 150 kilometres north from the US border, Penticton makes a handy base for exploring one of Canada’s largest wine-producing regions. You can go wine-tasting right in the city center and along the Naramata Bench above Lake Okanagan, and drive (or cycle) to dozens more wineries. Swim, paddle, or go boating on the lakes, go biking on nearby rail trails, or just enjoy the sandy beaches. For campers, Okanagan Lake Provincial Park, between Penticton and Summerland, has terraced campgrounds with lake views. You’ll find RV parks on Skaha Lake on Penticton’s south side.

When to go

The Okanagan Valley has some of Canada’s mildest temperatures, drawing visitors from April through October, and even Canadian “snowbirds” who settle in for the winter. Spring is relatively mild, summers are hot, dry, and busy, while the autumn months of September and October, during the grape harvest, are an excellent time to tour this British Columbia region, particularly if you can travel mid-week. Book early for July and August and for fall weekends.

Know before you go

  • Several towns around Penticton, including Summerland, Peachland, Kaleden, and Okanagan Falls, have more options for campers, from family campgrounds to RV parks, many on either Okanagan or Skaha Lake.
  • To buy local produce and interesting prepared foods, visit Penticton’s excellent farmer’s market, which operates on Saturdays on the town’s main street.
  • Kelowna is the only Okanagan city with an extensive transit system. While central Penticton is compact and walkable, it’s easiest to explore the area by car or bike. Consider renting an e-bike if you’re heading to hilly Naramata.
  • For a unique wine-tasting adventure, book a wine tour by kayak with one of Penticton’s outfitters.
