LAKEFRONT RV PARK IN THE SOUTH CARIBOO
Updated: Apr 20
One might broadly categorize RV Parks as either:
A stopover RV Park: Typically a stop over park is located just off of a major highway which RV’ers visit for a night or two on their way to a final destination.
A destination RV Park: Typically a destination park is where RV’ers are going to spend their vacation.
Martens Resort and RV Park is located in Lac La Hache, in BC’s South Cariboo, and would certainly be classed as a destination RV Park. The resort is easily accessed from highway 97 and is only 30 minutes from 100 Mile House, 1-hour from Williams Lake, 2.5 hours from Kamloops, 3-hours from Prince George, and 4.5 to 6 hours from the lower mainland and greater Vancouver area.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR STAY AT MARTENS RESORT AND RV PARK?
One of our RV campers had this to say:
“Our new happy place! Expect a clean, unpretentious lakefront RV Park in a natural setting. Great park, great lake - we highly recommend”.
Most RV’ers typically travel to our campground to enjoy a lakefront vacation. Martens Resort offers over 1100 feet of Timothy Lake shoreline with several docks for campers to moor their boats. For those travelling without boats, the resort rents fishing boats and non-motorized boats, including canoes, kayaks and paddle boards. The lake is approximately 8 km's long and considered one of the hidden gems in BC's South Cariboo.
We are a family friendly and dog friendly RV Park. We have lots of green space and a hiking trail that circles the resort. Families enjoy our playground and kids both young and old enjoy a variety of yard games.
We welcome campers to get back to basics and reconnect with nature. Play in the lake, introduce your kids to horseshoes and enjoy the simple pleasure of roasting a hotdog over a campfire.
Our RV Sites can accommodate some of today’s largest RV’s. RV Sites 1-8 are located on the right side of the property and are all full service sites, including hydro (30 amp), water and sewer. Sites 1-8 are capable of fitting RV’s up to 40 feet in length, but 35 feet and smaller is a more comfortable size. There is a row of cabins between these RV sites and the lake, so campers enjoy varied water views, from glimpses to fairly open.
RV Site 9 is located right behind the beach. This site is a favourite amongst our campers as it offers unobstructed views of the lake, not to mention, it puts you right in the action of some people watching. Site 9 can fit any size RV, so if you have a 40+ foot fifth wheel or a huge travel trailer this is a good RV site to book. Site 9 is a full service site, including hydro (20 amp), water and sewer.
RV Sites 10-19 are all premium lakefront RV sites. Not only will you enjoy wide open lakefront views, you’ll also have access to the water right from your RV site. Sites 10 to 17 feature private docks and are full service RV sites with hydro (30 amp), water and sewer.
Site 18 is a beautiful waterfront site for RV’s under 30 feet in length and offers hydro (15 amp) and water. Bringing a kayak, paddle board or a canoe? You can launch your toys right from your site.
Site 19 is right beside site 18 and is also a lakefront Site. Site 19 is the last RV site on the property, so campers searching for extra privacy like to target this special spot. RV Site 19 can handle any sized RV and comes with hydro (30 Amp) and water.
RV Sites 20 and 21 are located just in front of the playgrounds. These are pull through sites and are favourites for novice RV’ers who prefer not to back up, or those with large RV’s and/or kids. Site 20 and 21 offer hydro (15 amp) and water.
RV Sites 22-25 are full service RV sites located on the left side of the property. There is a row of RV’s in-front of these sites so campers enjoy a range of lake views, from glimpses to pretty good. These are large sites, again comfortable for any size RV. There is lots of green space behind these RV sites where campers often choose to have a communal fire or play a game of bocce ball. If you are travelling with friends who are tenting, these are great sites to select as our tenting sites are located close by.
We aim to provide picnic tables for all RV Sites and most of the time we hit the mark.
We aim to provide fire pits for all RV Sites and most of the time we hit the mark.
While many RV parks throughout BC draw their drinking water from the lake, which requires campers to boil water prior to drinking, our water comes from an artesian well, providing clean drinking water year round.
