  1. Hey 🙂 I tried to find a number to call but i guess there isn’t one. I was just curious, does a person have to reserve one of your sites? because i’m trying to find a campground that will have room for 3 sites side by side..and if no reservations, when do you think a good time to come out would be so i don’t miss out? your reply is very much appreciated 🙂 Have a good day.

  2. Hi Jessica
    I’m pretty sure you can’t reserve the Cooke Creek sites. It’s a first come first serve. From my experience there I would say if you plan your arrival early on a Friday or even Thursday you will likely not have a problem getting some sites together. If you haven’t been there before its a beautiful spot with the majority of campsites on the river and a few trees separating each.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers
    Paul

  3. This closure is only for the recreation site, and does not affect activities on the Shuswap River. Access to the river is still available via the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre. Visitors wishing to camp in the area can use the Hidden Lake recreation site or another local campground.

    Monday, Aug. 22 to 12 noon on Sunday, Aug. 28 to accommodate a Splats’in First Nations community event.

    This is the second year in a row that Cooke Creek has closed to hold the Splats’in cultural gathering. The Province often closes recreation sites to accommodate special events, such as family reunions or recreation competitions.

  4. We are looking to go camping tonight… Is the event over so we can camp for the weekend? I’d like call, but there is no phone number
