Agur Lake Camp is a barrier-free environment, located in the mountains west of Summerland, BC with fully-accessible cabins, equipped with adjustable beds and lifts; bathrooms feature roll-in showers, roll-under sinks and grab bars. There are fully-equipped kitchens and also at the camp are seven RV camp sites, and space to pitch a tent should you want to bring a group of friends.
