The best night's sleep!
Ken was very friendly and welcoming, as was his dog Charlie. The land is beautiful, forested with the views of the mountains, yet so close to Salmon Arm. I had the best sleep in his quiet field, and loved waking up to the rooster call and the soft presence of horses ... Split and Lucky. I look forward to a return visit. Thank you Ken!

Great spot for kids
Loved the site, there is a lot of space and the dogs and horse are roaming the land as well. Our dog was very happy too. Just - bring bug spray !

Gorgeous Property, Horrendous Bugs
Ken’s property close to Salmon Arm is nothing short of beautiful. The small river running through the farm with Mt. Ida rising in the background creates an incredibly picturesque setting. The dog is friendly, joining me on my walks, with the horses grazing, and chickens scratching. The drive-in sites are leveled/cleared, and shaded by the trees. The walk-in tent sites by the river are mostly located in a grass clearing, with knee high grass when I visited. Note the walk to get to these sites is across a decent sized field, and thus any heavy items will be a bummer to lug out. The small river is peaceful, and despite it not suitable for swimming, I was tempted. There’re two pit toilets, which are decently clean, one near the drive-in sites, and the other at the opposite end of the field to the walk-in sites. While there’s no fire rings or picnic tables at the sites, there's a communal firepit / picnic table located near the lower outhouse. A rough goat trail runs from the drive-in sites up into the Flyhills that overlook the property. The views are well worth the scramble, but don’t expect to follow the trail exactly, as it’s easy to lose. However, there is a drawback: the mosquitos. When I visited in late July, no matter where I was, a literal cloud of relentless mosquitos followed. Even wearing multiple applications of 30% DEET repellent, I was still mobbed. For this reason, maybe stay at a different time of year, or find some other solution than hiding in a tent.

Not what was advertised
The campsite was suppose to be a quiet out of the way place but it wasn’t. The first night the dog barked for about 4 hours continuously till 10:00pm. The second night there was a loud party with music until after midnight. Also the mosquitoes were so bad we couldn’t sit outside even with all kinds of repellent.

Beautiful, but tons of mosquitoes
Ken was friendly, the land was beautiful, and the horses were great to have nearby. The problem was that it was swarming with mosquitoes. I grew up in a similar environment, but I have never seen so many. My daughter found 40 bites on her after only 20 minutes at the site.
