"The beautiful resort, just outside Lytton, is perched on the Thompson River across from the grandiose White Canyon. Kumsheen is like an oasis in one of the most beautiful areas in Canada - and in summer, one of the driest and hottest areas. I also love this place because of the air. It's clean and dry, with a wonderful aroma of ponderosa pines, western grasses and a hint of sage-brush." 
            - Paul Bucci, The Vancouver Sun

The Legendary Thompson River and Mighty Fraser River

The Fraser River is the longest in BC and each of its 1400 kilometres abounds in the province's history. Its huge rapids, including world-famous Hell's Gate, have been celebrated and feared since Simon Fraser's first descent in 1808.

The Thompson River, the largest tributary of the Fraser, snakes through hot desert-like terrain mixing calm, flat stretches with huge, rolling waves. In the Devil's Gorge, the river unleashes its fury in eighteen unforgettable rapids like the Jaws of Death, Devil's Kitchen, and Witch's Cauldron.

Because of its size, we can offer power rafts all season starting May 1st and paddle rafts from July to the end of September.

"River rafting with the folks at Kumsheen Rafting Resort is one of the most exciting and affordable adventures available in beautiful British Columbia today."
          - Kurt Langmann, Aldergrove Star

Canvas Cabins

The resort has quaint white canvas cabins, fully furnished with antiques, historical memorabilia and two double beds (covered in cosy duvets). A propane light illuminates the interior with a warm romantic glow after dark. Linen & Towels provided.


Simply and tastefully furnished, our beautiful teepees create a distinctive atmosphere enjoyed by First Nations Peoples for many millenniums. Linen & Towels provided.


Friendly and family-oriented, the campground reflects our resort's amiable theme. A common campfire circle encourages the meeting of new friends. Expect to be fascinated rather than frustrated by the trains, as they are an integral part of our history.

The Restaurant

À la carte dining and pre-purchased meals are available in our Cutting Board Restaurant from mid-June to mid-September. The French doors open to an outdoor licensed patio where guests enjoy the resort's stunning view of White Canyon's rugged spires.
