Two Giant Ponderosa Pine Trees sit peacefully on this 1.5-acre property overlooking the North Thompson River. 

The camping site is above the river-facing east with a bench to enjoy the great view. There is firewood and a fire pit as long as there is no fire ban in effect.  A quick walk down the path is a hammock and the river's edge.  A floating raft/dock, canoe, and inflatable tubes are for your use.  Ask me about details for use.  There is a composting toilet on site.

The water is warm for swimming in the summer, but remember there is always a current,  For the brave, there is a rope swing. Use with caution. 

5 minutes down Westsyde Road is a winery to visit and a drop-off site for river-tubing. Message me for more details if interested. 

Akasha, a 3-year-old big white Husky/Shepherd lives on the property with me.  He is trained and very gentle, but very friendly and will probably be the first to greet you.  He loves dogs and cats, but if you are nervous with dogs or are bringing your own pet and think there might be a problem, please let me know before your arrival.

The entrance to camping is off Westsyde Road at 4723. Halfway down the gravel driveway on the right is a switchback.  Either pull down just past the entrance and back in or back down the driveway from the top to pull straight onto the roadway into the camping. Please do not go all the way down the gravel driveway to turn around as that is my neighbor's private road.

It's a beautiful spot in a neighborhood. There are no facilities or a picnic table, but there is a river and a view!
Deborah came out to greet me and chatted with me for a while, but generally left my dog and I to enjoy the scenery. Her dog was very friendly with my dog, and that was a blessing.

Wonderful little spot on the edge of Kamloops! Nice view of the river and peaceful under the stars. Even though it’s on the edge of town, ambient noise is mild. Deborah is a fantastic and accommodating host. We would definitely stay again! :)
