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. Visitors can also explore the numerous ghost-mining towns nearby and after an exciting day, relax in the many commercial or undeveloped natural hot springs in the area.

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-yThis park has one campground with small, shady, intimate forested sites in a mixed forest of fir, birch and hemlock. The campground has 33 vehicle accessible sites, 2 of these are doubles and 10 have tent pads (sites 4, 6, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 22, 29 and 30) . To accommodate larger recreational vehicles there are 6 pull-through sites. Limited parking is available for extra vehicles.
