Stemwinder Provincial Park

 

Stemwinder Provincial Park is found 35 km east of Princeton on Highway 3, on the banks of the beautiful Similkameen River. Visitors here can enjoy excellent views of the river and can try their luck fishing its fast-flowing waters. Swimming in the Similkameen River is not recommended due to strong current. The campground offers 26 campsites in a lightly forested area adjacent to the highway and is an excellent overnight camping stop for those travelling on Highway 3.

A nice roadside campground

Submitted by Guest on July 6, 2012

If you are looking for a quick picnic stop or an overnight stop adjacent to Highway 3, this campground is not too bad. There is enough shade, and privacy is pretty good. The sites adjacent to the river are more attractive because the sounds of the river flowing past drown out the highway noise. I would prefer this campground to nearby Bromley Rock Provincial Park campground. Better yet, there are some forestry sites between Stemwinder and Bromley Rock (on the other side of the river) that are quite nice.
