Lundbom Lake BC Rec Site

Lundbom Lake July 2016

Liz and I were up there 3 nights @ 12.00 / night (but nobody came by for our $ so it was free).
http://www.sitesandtrailsbc.ca/searc...e&site=REC1883

this is our second time @ Lundbom. Near Merritt off the connector between the Coq Highway and Kelowna. About 5 k of gravel and a bit of dirt road to our camp. Mostly single lane road. U have to look for places for room to pass oncoming traffic - Friday morning heading down we had to find ways to let 3 vehicles pass us (2 were truck + horse trailer combos).

We were up Tuesday/Thursday - leaving Friday morning in July - sites were available. wknds get quite busy with horse people and lots of ATVers.

(there I didn't keep this place a secret)

Thanks for sharing. That's the kind of place that we like, as opposed to an RV park or regimented campground. Nice easy distance from home too.

more Lundbom pics (out of about 300)

Lots of stars to view.

Of course it isn't all good.

This poor guy left his car in the wrong place. Of course notice the out of province Alberta plates ..... I felt sorry for him. We drove about another 5-k into the Rec Site to hike a hill and drove past this poor vehicle.

There are two primary camping areas: West and East Lundbom. We stay on the East Side which is more open range. I call the West Side area a fish camp. On one side of the lake (look for the trees along the lake) there are several other camping areas. Last year, our first experience on a BC Rec Site, the roads weren't marked 't and we turned right at a fork which led along the treed side of the lake. The road actually a dirt trail was steep, windy and very narrow. We drove a few minutes until we could tell we were going to be in trouble so we ended up backing up quite some distance. our Nissan is a 4x4 which comes in handy.

We had lots to learn. Some of the sites work best for a truck/camper combo - which we saw lots of. this last trip we drove without the trailer all around the lake. We wouldn't try it with our trailer. But having a cute little 17B makes it possible to get into many sites. (All those people buying 21's are restricting themselves

Slide-in truck campers seem less common than they were - I wonder if one reason for their continued popularity at this location, in addition to off-road ability, is that they work for someone towing a small horse trailer?

with your photography skills you guys would get great scenery and bird shots.

I'm one of those newly retired guys with a brand new camera who only knows how to use the presets and can barely centre a picture.

So, us lucky ones with 19's have the perfect size.

Wait 'till some composition expert tells you that you're not supposed to centre the subject in the frame! Personally, I'm happy to get anything which is interesting, and close to in focus.

I enjoyed the photos - thanks for sharing them.
