Boondocking Review: Picadilly Mall, Salmon Arm BC

On our trip last summer (July 17, 2012) we parked overnight at Picadilly Mall in Salmon Arm, BC.

Salmon Arm, B.C.
V1E 1T3

Coordinates: 50.693107,-119.297996

This mall welcomes boondockers.  So much so that they provide a free sani-dump in the NE corner of their parking lot.  Their website even says "complimentary sani-station & RV friendly parking."

The site was quiet, clean and well away from the highway.  There are lots of businesses to meet your travel needs. The next morning I returned some shopping carts to the corral, and shopped at the mall to show my gratitude.




Suggestion:  for your day site, to make a meal and hang out, go to McGuire Lake park, a short drive away.  Lovely, well maintianed and quiet.
