A short drive from Penticton, Oliver and Osoyoos, the Grist Mill Campground is a quiet family-oriented destination nestled in the shade of tall cottonwood trees adjacent to the meandering Keremeos Creek. This campground consists of a total of 11 creekside sites; power hook-ups, water, picnic tables, and fire rings are available for all sites. If power is required for your nightly stay the charge is $30.00; without power $20.00 per night.
Our small campground is the perfect jumping-off place to explore the many farm stands, wineries, attractions and recreation opportunities in both the Similkameen and South Okanagan Valley.
To reserve a Grist Mill campsite, please reserve online. Reservations by phone will be available starting on March 1, 2020. Questions or group bookings should be addressed to email@example.com.
