Big Horn Reservoir and Crown Land Camping near Kelowna

Any of my crown land camping examples have been back country camping or car camping. I wanted to post a few pics of an example where you can camp for free with your motorhome and do better than the average boondocker (Walmart parking lot camping)

Here are the pics of Big Horn Reservoir where a bunch of cool dudes shot guns, completed militia training, practiced opera, drank a little, played loud music till the truck battery died, got wet, muddy and spiritual all all in one weekend.

Big Horn Reservoir from Kelowna is reached by taking Westside Road to Bear Lake Main Forest Service Road (not Beaver Lake Road) and then taking Esperon Forest Service Road to km 26.

Near Big Horn, you must check out Esperon Lake Recreation Site!!!

Andrew Weaver put forth a bill last year that would have helped secure our ‘Right to Roam’ but it was not passed. His email is
