COVID 19 Updates on Campground Amenities and Activities

Albertans and Canadians Are Welcome in Our Park!

Recently the BC Provincial Government has determined that only BC residents are allowed to camp in Provincial Campgrounds. This does not apply to private campgrounds and there is currently no order prohibiting inter-provincial travel.

With COVID-19 at the foremost of everyone’s minds, we want to update you regarding our facilities and activities for this summer.

Information is changing minute-by-minute and the situation remains fluid and as such so do our plans. The current situation is creating many questions; many of which have no definitive answers. That said, this is where Whispering Pines is now, given what we know as of June 26, 2020.  

Health and Safety We are fully compliant and will remain so with the directions provided by government health authorities.

Spatial Distancing We ask that all guests not within their ‘safe social circle’  maintain a social distancing of at least 2 meters.Parents are responsible for their childrens’ spatial distancing. 

Reservations We are only accepting guests with confirmed reservations. To reserve, please email us at or call 250.838.6775.  Please note that online booking has been suspended.  

Cancellations Given these changes, we appreciate that you may need or want to cancel your reservation. Please review our cancellation policy.

Pool The pool will be closed this summer. As a reminder there are many access points to Mara Lake and the Shuswap River for water activities.

Office/Store The office will be staffed, however, all transactions (check-ins, documents, waivers, etc.) will be done electronically and in advance of check‑in, in order to maintain social distancing measures; assistance will be made available for those that are unable to or have difficulty submitting documents electronically. Firewood and ice are available for sale, but other inventory items may be limited.
