It is a good staging area for backcountry exploration of nearby Valhalla, Kokanee Glacier and Goat Range Provincial Parks.

Welcome to the heart of the West Kootenays. Not quite the Rockies, and not the Okanagan – a region that stands on its own. Where the scenery speaks for itself and the people who come to be among it. Escape to a place where peace and quiet are inescapable, and fun is always an option. Where rich experiences are born from the natural world that surrounds you at every turn. Central to it all, yet a world of it’s own. Come to look, but be ready to feel.

Choose the best way to immerse yourself in the beauty: stay at a Provincial Park.  Depending on where you’d like to go, we have a number of parks to suit your needs. Martha Creek, Blanket Creek, Arrow Lakes (Shelter Bay Site), McDonald Creek, Summit Lake and Rosebery Provincial Parks, along with the Wadey Forest Recreation Site are all located in this stunning area of southeastern British Columbia. Mountains rule the skyline and fresh water is never far away. Whether it be Lake Revelstoke, Upper Arrow Lake, Slocan Lake, or the many smaller lakes and rivers throughout the Columbia River Valley, our parks neighbour them all.

Take a vacation that gives you more than any resort could. Come camping and leave more comfortable than you arrived. Make your next destination the West Kootenays.
