Western Canada: From traditional… to original
Immerse yourself in a wilderness experience by camping in one of the teepees or trappers’ tents along the North Saskatchewan River. Experience the fur trader lifestyle with Heritage Camping. Light a fire with a flint and steel to cook bannock for supper.
2. RV camping
Relax with the family in your tent or RV at one of Kootenay’s four campgrounds. Hike the Sinclair Canyon trail, paddle the Vermillion river and finish by soaking in the Radium Hot Pools before enjoying some marshmallows in front of your campfire.
Don’t have the gear or prefer to travel light? Try one of our Equipped Campsites. We provide the gear, you make the memories. Enjoy the Bison Backstage Tour, take a bike or canoe ride or simply relax. When the sun sets, try making s’mores over the campfire – the kids will love them!
Fall asleep to the ocean’s and nature’s soothing sounds in your oTENTik while staying overnight in Canada’s best preserved west coast artillery fort! Experience life within the fort’s walls as you are taken back over 50 years ago when soldiers’ families inhabited Fort Rodd Hill during their summer camp-out.
Sleep in the historic home of the fort’s former chief factor, just as it was in 1896, down to the bedding, wood stove and chamber pot. Enjoy after-hours free rein of the fort.
