We are camping at Haynes Point right now. When we arrived the host told us that after October 1 this year Haynes Point will be closed until further notice. Here is an article which explains the situation:
A new washroom was being installed at the park and some bones were discovered, which apparently the Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB) believe are from their ancestors. The agreement between the provincial government and the OIB seems to indicate an uncertain future for Haynes Point.
We have camped at Haynes Point many times and believe it is one of the best campsites in BC. It would be a shame if it was no longer available to the camping public!
We just returned from four nights at this favourite park and really enjoyed ourselves. It is now managed by the Osoyoos Indian Band, the same organization that manages Nk'Mip. While weather was hot, there was still lots to see and do. We were impressed on how well the park is running under new management. Here are a few photos from our trip. https://www.flickr.com/photos/brian_...57654455044246

We are noticing that almost the entire CG is booked for some dates is Sept except for certain sites which have a comment that campers may get toilet smells. The CG map shows that the CG is quite small and we don't want to get stuck smelling toilets for three nights in a hot climate.
Am I being too picky?
Any comments would be appreciated.
