A small slice of paradise on Puntzi Lake at Barney's Lakeside Resort

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 outdoor fire-pit 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.

Penny and Rick are amazing hosts and their recent resort upgrades have made it my favorite place to stay. If your lucky enough to try her dinners they are best in the whole Chilcotin.

Relaxed and Picturesque

Here Rick 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👍.
