The campsites are very spacious and arranged privately. Showers and toilets; great number of lunch tables and green spaces for running dogs. Lots of trails for walking and hiking. 2 great bays for swimming and jumping off rocks.

Came here on my cousins boat. We parked outside the beach and explored the area. Very nice cove with lots of picnic tables. Never saw the campground but looking at the area it must be nice. Climbed up onto the rocks overlooking the lake. Gorgeous...More

One of our favourite spots for getting outdoors close to town! Enjoy the mountains and access to the lake but beware it's a hoof down if you aren't ready for the walk.

Ellison Provincial Park is located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in Scenic British Columbia. We were hunting for a washroom and a picnic spot with scenery and a water view, we found it here. What is not to love even on an overcast day?

We came here twice on our vacation. First time we stayed on a granite beach. You need water shoes as this beach is hard on your feet without them. Second time on a more sandy beach. Long hike from parking lot, but worth it when...More

Seems like a popular place for locals to mountain bike. We spent about an hour on the trails and had a great ride. Signage could have been better but Trail Forks app kept us on track.
