Minutes from Nakusp, right on the lake, huge Camp/RV sites, clean and quiet, now have running water and showers, but can get really booked up in the summer, reserve ahead!

Every year we stop here for a picnic along the shores of the lake. The picnic area is clean and well maintained. There is a great play area for kids. The washroom facilities are fairly new and well maintained.

Great campsites, forested, next to lake. Convenient location close to amenities in Nakusp. Recommend visiting in late May, early June, late September, early October when it's more serene and you can really appreciate and hear the beauty of nature.
