Long Description:
Inkaneep Provincial Park is actually fairly small with only 7 campsites. The campsites are reasonably nice size for tents or small RVs. There is a picnic table and a fire ring provided at each campsite and all are flat with easy access to the roadways. All of the campsites are shaded nestled among tall trees. It was early August when I visited the campground, and it was hot in mid afternoon.

There are hiking trails that are clearly marked, with an abundance of trees and tall native grasses, however there is poison ivy in the area. It is very dry in this area, and be watchful for rattlesnakes and scorpions. Bears are known to be in the area.

At the time I was there, only two campsites were in use. Close to the entrance is a hand operated water pump, it is the only source of water available in the campground and there is a boil water warning.

In summary, if you can avoid rattlesnakes, scorpions, and bears, boil your water and not get near the poison ivy this is a great place to camp.
