It says in the description of both Kelowna Crags and The Boulderfield that camping is free. This is amazing but I haven't been able to find more information on this.

Can anyone help me out with this free camping? Where is the campsite and how likely is it I'll get a spot?

Thanks!

I'm not 100% as I've never been up to the Kelowna Crags, but being a local valley person I understand that both the Boulder field & the Crags are located on Crown land, & that means no established campsite, so drive up find a quite, flat, shady spot & set up camp.

ya man... theres no campsites at the crags ... it's just burnt out woods. you could find a spot for a small tent i'm sure. have not been to boulderfields yet. but it is not far from the kelowna crags (cedar park) and would just be out in the bush also. no campgrounds or anything. hence the 'free' part - if you're coming out for a while, hit up boucherie too... fun conglomerate rock 30 seconds off the road .

Oh ok, that's great to know. Thanks! Now, since there's no established campgrounds, would campfires be frowned upon? or so long as it remains a leave no trace visit, it's all good?

I'm just curious...

thanks, again.

haha... well, i don't know, they probably already have a fire ban up already, haven't heard. but since everythings already all burnt out... ya. most that would happen is they would have to make the 15 minute drive in and then the 15 (cedar park)min hike in to tell you to put it out. your call. you climbing cedar park or lonely crags?... you better hit lonely boy up for sure!
