Camping and Backcountry Huts
There are no road-accessible campgrounds in Mount Revelstoke National Park. Glacier National park has three campgrounds at Illecillewaet, Loop Brook and Mount Sir Donald in Glacier National Park, 70 km east on the Trans Canada Highway. Several commercial campgrounds are found in Revelstoke. In addition, two provincial park campgrounds, Martha Creek and Blanket Creek, are located within 20 minutes of Revelstoke.
Parks Canada is designing a new frontcountry campground in Mount Revelstoke National Park
Located near the beginning of the Meadows in the Sky Parkway at the base of Mount Revelstoke, the campground will offer approximately 50 sites for tents, trailers, campers and motorhomes. Mount Revelstoke National Park does not currently offer frontcountry camping and nearby Glacier National Park only offers a small number of campsites suitable for large motorhomes. The campground will be constructed at the site of the Mount Revelstoke’s former staff residential area, and will re-use much of the previously-developed space at the site, including roads, parking areas and residential yards. This new facility will open in the 2019 visitor season.

Eva and Jade Lakes - There are designated summer backcountry campgrounds at Eva Lake and Upper Jade Lake. Each has four tent sites, outhouses and bear-proof food storage lockers. Open fires are not permitted in the park.
