Do NOT stay anywhere else at Canim Lake or surrounding area! South Point Resort is the only place to stay while in the Cariboo! Our 4 day stay wasn’t long enough. The weather was beautiful relaxing both day and night by the lake. The accommodations are clean, cozy and comfy all following our province’s health protocols and safety precautions. We rented the pontoon boat which I highly recommend to tour the beautiful lake. A day adventure to Canim Lake Falls was a lovely easy hike. Our dog loved every minute of our adventure and we will be going back to experience another season at South Point. Leanne and Bear are amazing hosts who show their love and passion for making their guests feel welcome. Thank you Leanne and Bear...we’ll see you in the winter.

We stayed in 3 Condos, for different lengths of stay. Our grandchildren aged 10years, 8 years & 6 years thoroughly enjoyed the swimming beach & slide raft. We as adults could watch them from our front decks, whether they were swimming, paddle boarding or floating along with the adults. Our facilities were top notch, lots of hot water, clean and well stocked 1 bedroom units. Leanne & Bear went above and beyond to ensure if we needed anything, it was provided with smiles and in a friendly manner. One of the highlights was the day we spent on the Pontoon boat exploring the West end of Canim Lake, on a warm, sunny day. The sunsets were remarkable as well. There are a very large number of smaller lakes within 45 minutes drive, of which our son took his boat & had success catchingvlake trout. Our family made memories that will last forever. Leanne runs a very efficient operation & met all requirements of our Provincial Health Officers Covid19 requirements. See you next year folks.

Great spot for outdoor lovers! Clean rooms, fully serviced camp sites, cabins available for rent, great fishing, and one of the best beaches on the lake! They even had a band playing one night! The hosts are very friendly and accommodating especially the maintenance guy who would bring firewood right to our campsite! 🔥It’s a great place to stay with family or friends—highly recommended!

The staff is friendly but you are packed in and they are loose on rules. Also if you are unlucky not to get a beachside rv spot then you can't swim at the nice part of the beach or swim to raft. Lots of boats parked on the beach. I would stay at a better resort Reynolds is not bad.

Thanks for your review, Lisa! Appreciate the feedback. Yes, we are only three months into this adventure as new owners, so still figuring things out along the way. I think you were here on a summer Long Weekend so we were very busy and lots of guests brought boats that weekend, which they can beach in front of their campsites. We do have a large communal beach in front of the condos for everyone to use, but we're very sorry the resort didn't work for you and your family. There are other great resorts on the lake for sure. Thanks so much!

We had an awesome stay here - our condo was spotless and had new towels, bedding and curtains. The bed was very comfortable. The walls are solid, so we didn't hear our neighbours at all. More importantly, the lake is just spectacular, and every condo and cabin has a great view of it. We took full advantage of the awesome amenities here: the stand up 'pedal' boards are so fun and easy to use, and the pontoon boat cruise across the lake was a delight. I got to take in a 'rustic sign painting' class at the resort, with a local instructor, for an unexpectedly artsy evening. And a short drive away from the resort we found the truly awesome Canim falls - one of the most impressive waterfalls we've ever seen... you can get right on top of them. But even if we just chilled by the lake and enjoyed the nightly campfire, I would have been totally satisfied. Leanne and Bear took over the resort this year and they've done such a good job of maintaining the appeal of this hidden gem, while updating the decor and amenities. They go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome - we'll definitely be back!

Stayed here for 5 days over fathers day weekend. The hosts of South Point Resort (Leanne and Bear) we're awesome. Always friendly and took the time to chat even though they're super busy dialing in their new retreat. Let's start off with the accommodations. I stayed in cabin 2 which is situated at the far side of the resort. It's an older rustic cabin but everything was clean and functional and had plenty of room. Had everything you could need in the kitchen and it even had a French press. Beach was steps from the front door and there was a slide on a floating dock that my daughter loved. Bear and Leanne are constantly working on updating the resort and I can't wait to see it in a few more years. They have numerous water activities for rent including a pontoon boat, aluminum fishing boat and stand up paddle boards that you use your feet to move. Not sure there names but they're a decent workout. My friends stayed in cabin 1 which was very nice and literally on the beach. Clean inside and had everything needed for a comfy trip. There are firepits on the beach for each cabin and rv spot as well. Full wheelbarrow of wood for $15 kept the fire roaring all day and long into the night. Lake was super nice as well. Spent most days diving off the dock as the beaches are a little rocky and my sensitive feet had a hard time navigating around. Bring some water shoes or old runners and your all set. Can't say enough about how great this little gem is. Our group consisted of tenters, rv'ers and cabin'ers and everyone was super stoked with their experience here. We all agreed to make this a yearly visit at the minimum. Can't wait to go back!

Anice place to get away. The cabin we stayed in was quite comfortable with plenty of room for us to not be in each others way. Our stay was very peaceful . It is june so there are plenty of mosquitos but other than that it was as clean and tidy as a person could hope for. The new owners are very friendly and dont bother you at all ,but they are always there if you need them. Great place ,would definitely like to come back. Beautiful Canim and Mahood falls about a half hour drive down the road.

We stayed in a bottom floor motel room (they call it a condo) that looked right out to the water, It was rustic but clean. They supply the bed linens and I supplied towels. The bed was comfortable and shower had great pressure. It was over 30° for the five days I was there but the room stayed a comfortable temperature without A/C. The kitchen has all of the basic items except wine glasses although I did miss a decent sized coffee mug. They allow fires on the beach which was very nice and sell the firewood for $15 a wheelbarrow load. There is a small floating dock with a slide on it anchored a short distance from shore. The beach is rocky but the water is lovely. There were a few glitches in the reservation so I would caution you to double check your confirmation. You should also prepare for mosquitoes. :) All in all, it was a great stay and I would definitely recommend to anyone who is ready to forgo the fancy hotels.

This was our first time camping with ponderosa resort and we are happy with the choice. The Rv waterfront spots are so nice and WOW what a view to wake up to! The camp ground is clean with full hook ups if desired. The owners Wolfegang and Karin were so friendly , checking on our needs and any concerns if we had any! Only thing I can mention is the wifi, its located at the office and would be nice if it reached to the campsites. There is a pay phone on site since there is no cell reception. This Resort has showers at minimal cost and cozy cabins/condos located right on the beach. Ty again Ponderosa we will back soon!

Ponderosa Resort has been our family's favourite summer vacation place for the past 19 years. It is a wonderful family friendly place. We stay for 2-3 weeks renting the cabin on the beach and we love it. The property is always kept clean and tidy. The owners are lovely people who are friendly and very accommodating. I am a dog owner and so appreciate that we are able to bring her and truly appreciate the rules of dogs having to be on a leash at all times. Thank you Karin & Wolfgang for all our wonderful memories!
