Up to 7 people travelling in the same vehicle may stay overnight at one campsite.

The campground accommodates Class A motorhomes (over 10 m or 33 ft).

Bears
Bears are naturally wary of people, but can become a serious hazard if they get into garbage or human food sources. Keep a clean campsite and ensure that anything associated with food, cooking, personal hygiene or pets is stored in your vehicle or in the campground food lockers when you’re not using it. Do not store any of these items in your tent. This is for your safety and it’s also a requirement in any national park. For tips and information on keeping your campsite safe in bear country, check out The “Bare” Campsite Program.
Camping with dogs

Bringing your furry family member? Dogs are welcome in Snowforest Campground but must be on a leash at all times. Do not leave pets unattended, pick up after your pets and ensure that all pet food is stored in your vehicle or the bear-proof lockers.

Consuming alcohol, cannabis and cannabis products is only allowed at registered campsites. Daily quiet hours concerning consumption are also in place.

Cannabis is legalized and strictly regulated in Canada. It is your responsibility to understand federal, provincial and municipal regulations for cannabis and alcohol consumption while visiting Mount Revelstoke National Park.
