Rendezvous 2018

Penticton Geology and Lapidary Club - Your Rendezvous 2018 Host Club

Rock Creek is 50km east of Osoyoos, in the Kettle River Valley.
Our venue is the Rock Creek Fairgrounds, where the buildings are surrounded by lush green grass, and there is plenty of dry camping room on site. There will be electrical hook-ups for about 30 RV's, not 30amp outlets, but enough power to keep your house batteries topped up. Coin-operated showers.

Dogs are strictly prohibited on the Fairgrounds, however there is dry camping across the road where dogs are allowed.

Our goal with this blog site is to give you as much advance information as possible on this beautiful area, services, attractions, and rich history.

When we aren't out rock hounding, we'll be adding information to this site from now until May 2018.

The May long weekend is the start of the busy tourist season in the area, so if you want a motel room, or full hook-up campground, you should book as soon as possible.

The Rock Creek Fall Fair in September is well worth a return trip to Rock Creek.

The Kettle River will be too high at Rendezvous, but is a popular floating venue in the summer, and the river drops low enough in August for some interesting finds in the river.
