Oh Glorious Canada Day Long Weekend!

Echo Lake Resort Long Weekend

Yes! Finally the weekend to celebrate all things Canadian!!

We honestly cannot describe to you how much we’ve been looking forward to this weekend (we’re sure you are too!). Things to look forward to this weekend: family campfires (S’moreessss galore!), warm emerald waters (perfect for swimming), hot hot Okanagan heat, a beautiful display of Canadian spirit by neighbours
,.. this list could go on for a while!

For those who are interested in staying with us this weekend, unfortunately, we are fully booked for BOTH cabins and campgrounds! BUT if you were really really looking forward to spending a Canada Day Long Weekend with us, keep in mind that we are accepting reservations for next year! So you can beat the crowds and reserve your spot anytime! Just head to our Request Availability page and fill out an arrival date for 2017!

For those guests who did reserve this year, we do have a few important notices to let you know about!
First off, at this time there is no campfire ban BUT do keep yourself up to date by visiting the BC Government Wild Fire Status Website to ensure you don’t miss any important changes! If you choose to bring your own firewood, please know that is TOTALLY A-OKAY. Just keep in mind that we do supply wood bundles (and kindling) for guests who do need firewood for their campfire! Also, PLEASE BE AWARE that unfortunately we are unable to host or allow any fireworks for this weekend due to risk of forest fires! But please do not be shy in bringing the Canadian flags, stickers, facepaint, etc!

Second, as a reminder to all our guests, we will be closing our gates at 10:00pm. If you are likely to check in late please be sure to send us a quick email or call us so we are sure to get you into your camp spot or cabin! This weekend is crazy busy, so to reduce traffic jams and such we are not offering any day use sites or day parking!

And LASTLY, if you were hoping to rent a boat this weekend PLEASE call ahead to reserve one as we only have a couple left! If you are bringing your own boat and you are staying with us.. then boat launch is free! Just keep in mind your motor must be either electric OR below 10HP. For those who are using the boat launch but are not staying with us, same rules apply regarding motor power but there is also a $5 parking and boat launch fee.

If you are interested in any further availability for cabins this summer, check out last weeks blog as it has posted all our remaining summer openings!

OKAY, that is all for this week! Again, we are SO pumped to see so many happy faces this weekend and cannot wait to celebrate Canada Day with you all!!

P.S we have included a picture below to give you a preview of your weekend! Please prepare to enjoy yourself!
