Backcountry campsites are available on the following trails: 

Each campsite has tent pads and food storage poles or lockers to place food out of reach of bears. Open fires are not permitted in the backcountry.

Backcountry campers require a Wilderness Pass and a Park Pass. Both are available at the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre and at the Park Headquarters in Revelstoke. Please see our fees page for more information on Park Passes and Wilderness Passes.
