Camping near Revelstoke guide

Overview

In the Selkirk Mountains of central British Columbia, midway between the Canadian Rockies and the Pacific Coast, Revelstoke is a popular road-trippers’ stopover and gateway to two national parks. Mount Revelstoke National Park is just outside town, and Glacier (not to be confused with the US national park of the same name) climbs into the jagged peaks 15 kilometres to the east. Both parks have summer camping areas accommodating tenting and RV campers, and commercial campgrounds and RV parks around Revelstoke give campers more options. A 10-minute drive from town, Revelstoke Mountain Resort attracts skiers and boarders in winter, while hiking and mountain biking are draws in the warmer months.

When to go

July through early October are the best months for a Revelstoke camping adventure. Snow can linger in the mountains through June and can start again in October. The Meadows in the Sky Parkway in Mount Revelstoke National Park is usually open from June into October, although the summit area has a shorter season – generally mid-July through September. Revelstoke is busiest in July-August and during the winter, when you can ski from late November into April.

Know before you go

  • Keep your gas tank topped up when you’re driving through this BC region. There are no gas stations or other services on Highway 1 between Revelstoke and the town of Golden, 150 kilometres to the east on the other side of Glacier National Park.
  • If you’re traveling east toward Revelstoke from Vancouver, the city of Kamloops, along Highway 1, is a good place to stop for supplies, with big box stores, gear sellers, and local shops.
  • Revelstoke itself has several outdoor gear shops, grocery stores, and several fun cafes, where you can pick up coffee, baked goods, sandwiches, and other snacks.
