Description

Davis Creek is a smaller campground with 32 sites situated on the north-western shore of Kootenay Lake, 5 km apart, 25 km (16 miles) north of Kaslo off Hwy. 31. Known for outstanding views of the Purcell mountain range with lakeview, sheltered campsites that provide a million dollar view. Davis Creek is north of Lost Ledge towards the Lardeau Valley and has recently undergone a reconstruction adding 10 new sites along the waterfront, an upgrade to the drinking water system and easier beach access points with the addition of a large retaining wall. The new campsites, called Cove Loop, have been added to the Discover Camping Reservation system and can be reserved up to 4 months prior to your planned visit. Easy beach access to Kootenay Lake makes water activities such as kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddle boarding an ideal way to pass the day. Swimming would be considered refreshing as the water tends to be cold. When the wind is up the area is also well known for windsurfing and kite boarding. Campsite reservations are accepted at Davis Creek campground and first-come, first-served sites are also available. Davis Creek campground with gravel roads has 32 small, medium to large vehicle accessible sites, two are double sites. The park offers both lake view sites with beach access or shaded sites in a fir, birch forest. The reservable campsites are sites 1-10 in Cove Loop. A park gate is located at the park entrance. There is limited parking in the larger sites for extra vehicles. There are no pull through campsites. The campgrounds offer services during the peak season of May to September.
