Dragonfly Estate is located in Needles, B.C., 2 hours east of Vernon. Our site is down a quiet logging road just off Highway 6 so if you're just spending a night while passing through the location is fantastic, or if you're in need of a weekend getaway, we're located far enough away from the Highway that there's plenty of peace and quiet. The site is a large open field surrounded by forest and mountain views. So if you're looking for a quiet getaway and not a crowded RV park with small side by side sites, this is for you.
Looking for a getaway? Come to historic Needles, B.C. Whether it's just to relax and unwind, or to go quadding, snowmobiling, fishing, hunting or a little bit of everything. This private camp area on acreage is just what you need.
Plenty of things to do and places to visit:
Beautiful Whatshan Lake is only a 5 minute drive from our property, it has a public beach and boat launch, if you have a boat. Rainbow trout reaching weights of 1.5 kg (3.3 lb) as well as bull trout of up to 4.5 kg (10 lb) are resident in the lake. Kokanee are small but plentiful.
Arrow Lake is a 5 minute drive and has Large Gerrard Rainbow Trout and are resident in this lake where fishing is best in the fall month
Snowshoe Lake is a 10 minute drive, has both rainbow and brook trout and are abundant, weigh up to 2 kg (4.4 lb).
Fauquier Golf Course is 7 k/m east. Needles/Fauquier ferry will get you across the Arrow Lake in about 7 minutes.
During winter months snowmobiling and snowshoeing is right out back. Skiing, heli-skiing and snowboarding are in the surrounding area.
Hunting is great out here, so if that's an interest, Deer, Elk, and Partrage are plentiful in the area. We also have a small shooting range out back.
20 minutes away is Edgewood, a small, friendly rural community where many of the people make a living working in the local agriculture and forestry industries found in the Inonoaklin Valley and the rest of the Lower Arrow Lakes region. The pace is a little slower with the residents adapting a real laid-back lifestyle. For local services there are the Edgewood General Store with a gas station, Canada Post Office, Branch 203 Royal Canadian Legion, Vantage One Credit Union and the Edgewood Health Centre.
