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.
Backcountry Camping and Shelters
There are designated backcountry campgrounds at Eva Lake and Upper Jade Lake. Each site has four tent sites, and campers must use the tent pads provided. There are outhouses and food storage lockers to keep food out of reach of bears. See The 'Bare Campsite' Program for more information on safe camping in bear country.
There is one backcountry shelter in Mount Revelstoke National Park. Caribou Cabin is open in winter only and is located 20 km up the Meadows in the Sky Parkway. The cabin sleeps six people and there are foam sleeping pads provided, as well as a woodstove and firewood. There is a fee of $14.70 per person per night to use this cabin - this fee includes a wilderness pass. Contact the office of Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks to book this cabin and obtain the key.
Open fires are not permitted in the park, except in the fireplace provided at the Monashee Lookout at km 8 of the Meadows in the Sky Parkway.
Backcountry camping passes are required for overnight trips to either the campsites or the cabin and can be purchased at the welcome station kiosk at the beginning of the Meadows in the Sky Parkway or at our office in the City of Revelstoke. See our fees page for current pricing.
