Revelstoke boasts some of the best camping areas in British Columbia. Some Revelstoke camping options offer full service hook ups, while others are off the beaten path and require you to be more self sufficient. We have two Provincial Parks in our area, and several BC Recreation Sites that offer camping, view our camping listings in the link above. Most local privately operated campgrounds offer full service sites, complete washrooms, laundry, and convenient pull through sites for even the largest RV.
Revelstoke Camping – National Parks
There are no road-accessible campgrounds in Mount Revelstoke National Park. There is remote wilderness Revelstoke camping, but for vehicle-accessible sites, travel east on the Trans Canada Highway to Glacier National Park. Glacier National park has three campgrounds at Illecillewaet, Loop Brook and Mount Sir Donald. Only a few sites can handle the largest recreational vehicles, and RV hookups are not available.
Revelstoke Camping – Backcountry and Shelters
There are designated backcountry campgrounds at Eva Lake and Upper Jade Lake. Each site has four tent sites, and campers must use the tent pads provided. There are outhouses and food storage lockers to keep food out of reach of bears. See The ‘Bare Campsite’ Program for more information on safe Revelstoke camping in bear country.
There is one backcountry shelter in Mount Revelstoke National Park. Caribou Cabin is open in winter only and is located 19 km up the Meadows in the Sky Parkway. The cabin sleeps six people and there are foam sleeping pads provided, as well as a woodstove and firewood. There is a fee to use this cabin. Contact the office of Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks to book this cabin and obtain the key.
Open fires are not permitted in the park, except in the fireplace provided at the Monashee Lookout at km 8 of the Meadows in the Sky Parkway.
Backcountry Revelstoke camping passes are required for overnight trips to either the campsites or the cabin and can be purchased at the welcome station kiosk at the beginning of the Meadows in the Sky Parkway or at the Parks Canada office in Revelstoke.
