Banff-Windermere Parkway, Regional District of East Kootenay, British Columbia




McLeod Meadows Campground in Kootenay National Park occupies a quite wooded area on the banks of the Kootenay River with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains. Listen to the sound of the Kootenay River and watch for wildlife, including deer and elk. Enjoy a gentle hike to Dog Lake or a more strenuous one by booking a Burgess Shale Fossil Hike to Stanley Glacier, then take a short trip down the highway to the Village of Radium Hot Springs in the Columbia Valley for great dining and a soak in the hot springs. The open grasslands of McLeod Meadows and the nearby river makes ideal habitat for wildlife viewing. In early summer, the orchids bloom in the nearby meadows once the snow has melted, allowing for a special treat. Sites are appropriate for tents and small to mid-sized RVs. McLeod Meadows has 80 un-serviced 80 sites, available First-come, first-serve. It is open June to September.
