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.
Front Country Camping – National Parks
There are no road-accessible campgrounds in Mount Revelstoke National Park but a new campground is expected to open for the 2020 season. 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 two campgrounds at Illecillewaet and Loop Brook. Only a few sites can handle the largest recreational vehicles, and RV hookups are not available.
Backcountry Camping and Cabins – National Parks
Designated backcountry campsite are available in Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks at the following locations:
Glacier National Park: Hermit, Mount Sir Donald and Bald Hills Wilderness Hiking Route
Mount Revelstoke National Park: Eva Lake and Jade Lakes
Each campground has tent pads, food storage lockers or poles to place food out of reach of bears and dry toilets. See The ‘Bare Campsite’ Program for more information on safe Revelstoke camping in bear country. Open fires are NOT permitted in the backcountry.
Campsites must be booked on the day of use and a wilderness pass and park pass are required. Inquire at the welcome kiosk at the entrance at Meadows in the Sky Parkway, the Park Headquarters in Revelstoke or at the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre in Glacier Park.
The Alpine Club of Canada operate three huts in Glacier National Park; One front country hut (Wheeler hut) and three backcountry huts (Asulkan, Saphire, and Glacier). For more information and registration, contact the Alpine Club of Canada directly.
