Barriere Ridge Resort is a hidden gem. It is a private resort on the west side of East Barriere Lake, one of the warmest and cleanest lakes in BC.
It is located off a Forest Service Road in the town of Barriere , which is only 45 minutes drive from Kamloops.
Our RV Site is a large 1 acre lot fully serviced with water, electricity, and sewer and only 150 meters walk to the Lake!
Unlike most RV site rentals where your neighbour is literally only steps away, your neighbour (if any) will be half an acre away!
The lot is rectangular in shape, with the bottom half is levelled for RV use, and the upper half is a private forested area open for your exploration.


Each RV is considered as 1 guest (no additional charges for extra people)

The site can comfortably fit a second RV so great for a group stay.

One extra RV is considered 1 additional guest.

- $68/ night with minimum 3 nights stay for 1 RV (any length is fine)

- $475 per week.

- Extra $12/ night for an additional RV.


It is at 632 m in elevation one can enjoy the warm weather of the North Thompson. With surface temperatures reaching 27°C, the lake is perfect for swimming or any water sports. The lake is also up to 100 m deep, translating to excellent fishing during the summer. The lake has a surface area of 994 ha (2,456 acres) and is almost 15 km in length, which provides plenty of areas to remain uncrowded.


The Barriere Lakes (North, South, and East) hold some of the best trout fishing in this region. Trolling, fly fishing, and light spin casting for native Kamloops rainbow trout are all productive methods. The Lakes each personalize opportunities to enjoy paddling in calm waters, fishing, or drifting in a pontoon boat. Uncrowded East Barriere Lake is great for waterskiing, wakeboarding, and other watersports. Nearby, Dunn Lake is also long and deep, offering excellent fishing for rainbow trout, lake trout, bull trout, and Kokanee. There is good hunting for moose and deer from the property.


Travel north or south to Barriere, BC via Highway 5. Turn northeast onto Barriere Town Road until you reach Barriere Lakes Road, travel east for 21 km then turn north (left) onto Fir Road, which turns into Russel Creek FSR. Follow this road until there is a fork in the road, turn right to Barriere Ridge Resort. From Fir Road, the way to the resort is well marked. A gate is at the upper end of the resort that requires a combination to enter.
