Okanagan Falls to Kentucky-Alleyne Provincial Park, B.C.

29 September 2010 - Wednesday

The truck still being fixed. The shop promised it would be ready later today.

The campground attendant indicated it wasn't a problem if we missed the 11 a.m. check-out time. He said it wasn't busy and the delay wasn't our fault, so no issue. If we were still there at 5 p.m. though, then another night's fee would be payable. That was a relief!

Decided to walk to the grocery store. While we were shopping the power went out!  So the store had to close without warning. No groceries! If it wasn't for bad luck we wouldn't have had any luck on this trip!

At about noon, the repair shop phoned. The truck was ready. Steve was back with a fixed truck at about 2 p.m. We loaded the truck, hitched the fifth wheel, and headed out at 3 p.m.  Okanagan Falls was nice enough, but we prefer the woods!  Still didn't know where we'd be tonight; only knew we'd be someplace else!

Turned north on Hwy 97 and then west on Hwy 3A.

Hwy 3A westbound, B.C.
Hwy 3A westbound - N49 22.395 W119 39.015

Hwy 3A westbound, B.C.
Hwy 3A westbound - N49 22.303 W119 39.580

Then continued west on Highway 3 to Highway 5A which headed north towards Merritt.  At about 4:30 p.m. we were at the Allison Lake provincial park & campground on Hwy 5A.  It was too close to the highway and seemed a little rough.  So carried on.

At 5:30 arrived at Kentucky-Alleyne Provincial Park. We've always liked this campground so were content to settle in for the evening. It was quiet, not overly busy, and the weather was wonderful!
