Bromley Rock Provincial Park

 

This small provincial park is found 21 kilometres east of Princeton, just off Highway 3. It is located on the banks of the Similakameen River across from an unusual rocky bluff after which the park was named. There are 17 campsites set in a forested area of Douglas firs and overlooking the Similkamen River. During hot summer days, it is a pleasure to take a refreshing dip in one of the cool swimming holes in the river. Other popular activities include canoeing, kayaking, and tubing down the river to Stemwinder Park 14 km away.

Facilities

Vehicle Accessible Camping

Vehicle Accessible Camping

This park offers 17 vehicle accessible campsites. There are three pull-through sites but no doubles. All of the sites are first-come, first-served. The sites are mid-sized and shaded by large Douglas fir, though the understory is sparse leaving the campground quite open. Half of the sites are situated along the top of the river bank and the gravel pads have been raised above the surrounding terrain.

Picnic Areas

Picnic Areas

The day-use/picnic area is west of the campground, also along the Similkameen. It features 19 tables and a 29-car parking lot. Many of the tables are spread out amidst two old growth Douglas fir which provide ample shade on hot days while the remainder are found along a strip of lawn shaded by smaller deciduous trees and overlooking the river. Concrete stairs lead from the parking lot down to the river and a large beach of fine sand. After spring freshet when water levels are lower, the rocky bluffs that jut into the river create a quiet pool, perfect for swimming.
