Looks like it should be about 74F during the rally.

By early June, most of the igloos are closed in for the summer season.

Last year it was very hot! 90 degrees or more on a couple of days, I think. We were glad we had AC, but we're hoping it isn't that warm this time. There were several rattlesnake sightings in the camp; evidence under our trailer one morning was a skin that one shed in the night. The heat was unusual for that time of year, though. It really is desert country in that area, so it will most likely be pleasantly warm.

It's a great campground! Restroom is brand new and showers are great.

We went swimming in Osoyoos Lake! Hopefully it will be a repeat again this year.

I notice on a site the the cg offers "rv wash" facilities, it certainly would be nice to be able to clean off the road grime, can anyone verify this, thanx?

I assume you can just wash the trailer in your (fully serviced) site: we stayed at Nk'Mip for an extended period and we did that. I don't recall any facility like a big car wash bay (one RV park in Burnaby does have that), but there could be something set up.

That would be nice, most cg here prohibit such.

I wondered if that might be the concern. Water suply, drainage, soap in runoff, and splashing other trailers in tight spaces could all be reasons to prohibit washing RVs in campsites. None appear to be issues for at least some campgrounds, including Nk'Mip when I was there; rules may have changed.

Washing is not mentioned in the currently posted Nk'Mip rules. In contrast, the place with the RV wash (which has smaller sites) has a rule that says "No hose washing of vehicles in R.V. spaces. Please use R.V. / car wash." My guess is that whatever facility Nk'Mip provides, the trailer can get clean.
