Martha Creek Provincial Park

Overview

Martha Creek Provincial Park is located 18 km (10.5 miles) north of Revelstoke on Hwy 23 N. This park has great fishing, a wharf, paved boat launch, sandy beach, sani station, flush washrooms with showers and 76 campsites (35 of which are lake front sites) on Lake Revelstoke. These features make this park popular with local anglers, boaters and families.

The park has had a recent expansion of 29 campsites (many which are waterfront), a new shower building, and a new sani station is available for filling fresh water tanks and dumping black water tanks. As the only provincial park on Lake Revelstoke, it hosts one of the few sandy beaches in the area and provides numerous recreational opportunities including an adventure playground, indoor cook shelter, and a large picnic field complete with volleyball net.

Its close proximity to Revelstoke adds a diverse range of attractions. Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks in the rugged Selkirk Mountains nearby offer a wide range of activities. Especially popular is the paved summit road into the wildflower meadows and alpine of Mt. Revelstoke.

picnic-yThis park has two recognized day-use/picnic areas – one on the beach and one closer to the day-use parking area. The one parking lot can accommodate 40 vehicles. Fire pits and barbeque stands are not available.

The beach day-use/picnic area located at the south end of the campground has 6 picnic tables 20 m back from the shore line. Nearby are an adventure playground, water tap and 2 pit toilets. The beach is coarse sand and pebbles, 300m long and flat.

The infield day-use/picnic area is by the parking lot 2 min from the beach, and has a closed-in shelter, volleyball net and horseshoe pitch. There are 8 tables, 4 in the shelter and 4 in the field. Users share the toilets and water tap located at the beach. The field is maintained and popular for frisbee and other recreational activities. Group Picnicking Fee: $50.00 per group

playgnd-yAn adventure playground with swing set, monkey bars, and slide is located at the beach day-use/picnic area. The equipment is set in pea gravel.

campfrs-yWhile campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park for $8 per bundle or you may bring your own wood. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.

campveh-yThe campground hosts 76 vehicle accessible campsites, including 4 doubles. Sites 1-23 are all single campsites with some adjacent to the central grassy field mixed with wildflowers that bloom in late July and August and others that have spectacular views of the reservoir and mountains nearby. Sites 24-76 are located near the lakeshore with a mix of single, double and pull through style sites. All are evenly spaced, open, sunny and hot with a welcoming afternoon wind. Parking for extra vehicles is available in the day-use parking lot.

The park has services from May to September. Campsite reservations are accepted and first-come, first-served sites are also available. Non-reservation holding visitors can choose a site that does not have a camping receipt posted on the campsite number post and staff will come to collect fees. A park gate is located at the park entrance. The closest phone and store are in Revelstoke, a 15 min drive south. Vehicle Accessible Camping Fee: $28.00 per party/night

boat launchA paved and concrete, singlewide boat launch is located at the southern tip of the park, at the far end of the park entrance road. A large wharf accommodating up to 4 boats is available to dock your boat. Overnight parking for vehicles and boat trailers is allowed in the day-use/picnic parking lot. Overflow boat trailer parking is also available near site 42. See Campground Map.

Activities

walking, hiking, trailsHIKING:  There are no formal trails within the park.  At the far north end of the campground, a short walk takes you to a kokanee spawning channel, views of Lake Revelstoke, and spots for seclusion. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroy plant life and soil structure.

swimming-ySWIMMING:  There is one open, sunny beach that parallels the group of lake view campsites. The beach consists of coarse sand and pebbles. Cool to refreshing water with a 300m long, flat beach provides excellent swimming and sunbathing opportunities. This is one of the few sandy beaches in the area. Adults can observe their children swimming from their campsite. There is no roped off swimming area. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.

pets, domestic animals in parksPETS ON LEASH:  Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times in the campground and day-use areas, and are not allowed on most beach areas or in park buildings. There is an off leash area in this park where dogs are allowed to play in the water, but they must be under control at all times. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement.
