About Tuckkwiowhum Village
Tuckkwiowhum Village (pronounced Tuck-wee-ohm) is a First Nations heritage site located in Nlaka’pamux territory, 5 km south of Boston Bar, British Columbia. Tuckkwiowhum Village was inspired by our desire to preserve and share the culture and traditions of the Nlaka’pamux people. The name Tuckkwiowhum means “a great berry picking place” and this area still boasts lush forests and beautiful rolling hills still plentiful with huckleberries, blueberries, and medicinal plants. Enjoy an historical adventure in BC's Fraser Canyon where you will be immersed in our rich culture. See the summer lodges, smoke house, food caches, sweat lodge, earth ovens and a winter pit house. Come to the village and just as it was thousands of years ago, you can visit with one of our respected Elders, who are happy to share our traditional stories. Enjoy a unique Tipi camping experience or enjoy a peaceful getaway in our campsite area. Our longhouse can also be rented for weddings & other special events!

We were invited to stay here as Lytton Wildfire survivors. We lost everything but the clothes on our backs. Up until August there was a very kind, compassionate and hardworking camp manager who kept up the camp very well and made us feel safe and relaxed. The first weekend in August all that changed with the new management. Now the bathroom drains clog because they don't sweep the debris from the floor. There is often brown standing water on the floors because they just use a mop to spread the dirt and ...other stuff... around but don't actually clean the floors. Despite having avoid outbreak in the community, there was no on site cleaner and the washrooms were not cleaned - taps and sinks and soap dispensers not wiped down. The manager has been rude and disrespectful to wildfire survivors, including elders. He has 2 large dogs which he allows to roam free and they leave huge dumps that he does not pick up - even in public areas. We have tried to talk with him about these things but he is rude or tells us that everything is clean and has been cleaned 4 times daily (photos attached). We even asked him if he could leave the cleaning supplies out so that we as a community to keep it clean ourselves and he refused! It's not just the decline of the camp since his arrival (which has definitely happened) it is also his general unkindness and clear disdain for us as wildfire survivors that leads me to leave this review.

If you are looking for a clean well serviced campground to stay at on the #1 highway just outside of Boston Bar, B.C. this might just what you are looking for. Stephanie took our reservation and said you are in #15, we drove in, parked and two days later when we are ready to leave we went to the caretakers house and paid,, very quiet camping except for the trains that ran over two trestles ,, if you like trains then you will love this place. The washrooms are very clean with flushing toilets, GREAT showers and always clean, the ground keepers are doing a super job mowing and detailing, great place to take pictures of the Fraser river but i would not recommend this place for a family with very young children, the Fraser river runs fast so you would have to be constantly looking out for those children that think that they are invincible to danger.

We are 5 families who booked the biggest group site #36. We are 12 adults and 4 kids in total. There are so much GOOD AND WONDERFUL THINGS to say about this campground, first I would like to give a big shout out to Stephanie who took care of us from the booking process up to the check-out day. We were there for 3 days, 2 nights and we are so impressed with the clean washroom and FREE hot shower. Our site #36 does not have power and water but did not bother us at all. The water is 2 mins, walk away but we had fun getting it using water gallons. The kids had so much fun. The site was so big so we have so much space that we set up a big gazebo for our eating area. We had BBQ and cooked our dishes there for 3 days. Day 1 - we arrived at 2pm and have started setting up our tents and had dinner and enjoy the night. Day 2 - we went to the beach (left side of the campground) and the sand is the most beautiful fine sand that we have ever seen in the whole BC. The way to go there is a bit tricky and narrow that you need to hold in the branches of trees to treck going down but worth every difficulty when you reach the beach. Day 3 - we swim in the creek area (right side of the campground). we cross the running creek and it was so much fun. the water was a bit cold but bearable. The water is up to your waist so you can dip in the water. We are the only group there and it was so private. ALL IN ALL THIS CAMPGROUND IS PERFECT. The only downside is the train tracks which goes around the campground. The 1st night (Saturday) it passes like every 30 mins total of 8 times, so if you are light sleeper I would recommend bringing earplugs. Some of the families that joined us was not bothered by it and had a good sleep . The 2nd night (Sunday), it came only 2x the whole night so we had a wonderful sleep. In short, if there is no train tracks, THIS IS PERFECT!!!! WE WILL COME BACK NEXT YEAR.

Loved it all!!!! Self guided tour...strolled slowly through the whole thing, even saw a black bear..so pls make some noise to let them know you're there!! He did flee, so it was ok. But always carry bear spray for safety. The teepees were awesome. The landscaping was so cool...the vibe is very surreal. You feel like you stepped back in time. A time when the natives were at peace and not over run with us crazy white folks!

We enjoyed our self guided tour around the village. I like that there were signs explaining what each structure was and how it was used. Unfortunately we were there in off season so the gift shop and restaurant were closed. Whoever does their landscaping needs to be commended as it is gorgeous. Thank you, we’ll be back!
