Supplies and services are available nearby including firewood, toiletries, dog day care, massage, bike and canoe rentals, life jackets, rubber dingys and paddles etc. Let us know if you would like a referral to any of these services. There are many guides available for activities in the area including (water sports, climbing, skiing, hiking, artist tours, events, geology, mining, mushrooms, cannabis, garden tours and native history). There is a particularly valued native storyteller here that can also provide a walking tour to a nearby village site with a full scale replica of an aboriginal kekuli (earth house). Please call ahead for recommendations on booking guides or storytellers. You don't need one to get here, but its good to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle for some of the logging roads that are worth visiting. Roof and/or bike racks can also come in handy.

Awesome campground and helpful host
Beautiful quiet campground, plenty of space between sites, and awesome community bldg w/refrigerator, stove, tables, couch, and two clean private bathrooms.
Tom is an excellent host, very helpful and knowledgeable about nearby hot springs, waterfalls, rail trails for biking and hiking, and beaches along rivers and lakes. I will definitely be back!!

Private Hut with Bunk Beds
Tom runs a great campsite: it was quiet, welcoming, in a beautiful setting with lots of trees and a community vibe. It’s just far enough off highway 6 but also close to the Slocan river and trails.
