We camped at Barney's in our travel trailer in mid-September. The weather was fabulous. We had originally planned to stay only 2 nights but were so happy with the resort we decided to stay longer, using Barney's as our base camp for our adventures in the Chilcotin Plateau. The resort was very clean, and our hosts Skip and Shannon made our stay even better. Skip shared his local indigenous knowledge with us and it made our visit more relevant. We kayaked on the lake and were able to get within a few hundred meters of the white pelicans nesting there. I would definitely recommend Barney's to others.
We rented a cabin and it was well cleaned when we arrived. The bathrooms were clean and the shower was hot! We had a great time paddling on the lake, even on a very hot day. The owners were away but the couple taking care of the place were super friendly and eager to help us out. I can't wait to go back!
Reserved cabin in January and had to pay for it immediately to arrive in August. The fridge had food left in both freezer & fridge. I had to clean it before I used it. There was animal droppings on the floor and I discovered the next day it was from a BAT!! which I then trapped. The window sills were full of dead flies and bugs. There were cobwebs hanging everywhere. I discovered the floor had not been cleaned under the bed or behind the side tables for a long time. The public washrooms where not cleaned for the five days we where there. There were 14 people in our group so I spent most of my time outside or in their self contained units. A boat was rented one day and the motor quit running at the other end of the lake. The person in the boat was on the lake rowing for three hours before he had to be towed back! Very bad experience.…
Sent out on boat by Intoxicated gentleman didn’t fill tank up ran out of gas also slurring words and staggering also cutting lawn and weed whipping while I’m drying time with my family just an inconsiderate drunk
This place is rustic but the great thing about it is the manager May she is friendly bubbly and makes you feel right at home It’s fishing resort along beautiful lake … we camped in our self contain trailer but there are full hook up sites and cabins .. the bistro was closed but their busy season hasn’t begun … we used the shower house that was very clean heated with plenty of hot water …
We stayed here on our way to catch the ferry at Bella Coola. What a great find! It is a bit off the pavement but truly worth the little drive on gravel. Our site was lakefront and how beautiful it was! If you are needing a campsite out that way, we would recommend this one!
If you are looking for a peaceful and most relaxing getaway then you have to visit Barney's. Honestly, this resort meets all your needs for a wonderful getaway. The campsites and the cabins are steps away from Puntzi lake, if you fish, canoe, water ski or paddle board the lake is perfect. A 10 min boat ride will take you to an Island full of Pelicans, and what beautiful birds they are. The cabins are cute and fully equipped with everything you need. Rick and Penny can't do enough for you, they ensure that all your needs are met for a wonderful stay. The Bistro food Penny cooks for the community and their resort quests is made from scratch and is simply Delicious. The menu is made up of favorite pub food picks and it is a nice treat for anyone who wants a break from Weenies, and Beans. I'm already looking at booking for our 2021 holiday. Thank-you so very much Rick and Penny for a most relaxing holiday, you have no idea how much we enjoyed and appreciated the time we had at Barney's.…
What an awesome time we had at this beautiful resort right on the lake! A wonderful cabin with amenities+++. Pots, pans, microwave, coffee pot, everything we needed. A wonderful fireplace kept us toasty warm. An outdoot firepit was ours for the use as well. So clean and so comfortable! Our hosts, Penny and Rick, were amazing. We can't wait to come back again, glamping or camping, to this slice of paradise. They have cabins, RV hookups, camping, and more.
Here Ric and his wife Penny have created a refuge away from all the city noises and the usual tourist entertainment stress. The quite lake slows you down immediately. There are all the facilities you need on the campground, they might not be all new, but very clean and well kept. Ric and Penny are very friendly and helpful. We can most certainly recommend the place to all those who are looking for a quiet and peaceful stay on a highly romantic site👍.
My second stay here for work. Bunkhouse is so comfortable. Leather sofas. Full kitchen. TV. internet. So clean. Also. Amazing food. I came in last minute, I was welcomed with smiles, amazing dinner, and a comfy bed. These folks go the extra mile. I recommend anyone to stay at Barney’s for work or play.
