Arrow lakes Provincial Park (Shelter Bay Site) is located along the shores of Upper Arrow Lake Reservoir adjacent to the Shelter Bay ferry terminal on Highway # 23, 50 km south of Revelstoke. The park is a popular destination for fishers and boaters. The campsites within the park have spectacular views of the lake and the surrounding towering mountains.

McDonald Creek
2830 Hwy#6

Situated just south of Nakusp, McDonald Creek Park is one of a system of four Provincial Parks on the Arrow Lake reservoir. With facilities on the eastern shoreline, it is a holiday destination for swimming, boating and fishing opportunities. It features several kilometres of fine sandy beach, water front sites and open grassy meadows.

Summit Lake
2470 Hwy#6

Park visitors enjoy canoeing, fishing for rainbow and cutthroat trout or swimming in the lake’s clear, refreshing mountain water. Mountain goats can often be viewed on rocky outcroppings and in late summer a natural spectacle occurs as thousands of toads emerge from the lake and migrate to the nearby forest to hibernate for the winter.

Rosebery Provincial Park
650 Rosebery Park Rd

Just for camping, Rosebery Provincial Park is located just north of New Denver, on Highway 6. To the west, across Slocan Lake, is the magnificent Valhalla Provincial Park. Tucked along the banks of Wilson Creek, this park has an intimate, forested creek setting that offers secluded camping for overnight travellers or visitors seeking more adventure. 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, not the Okanagan, but 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.
