This is a great provincial park with large sites, many with lots of shade. A few sites have 50 amp power hookups, but no other services are available. the park is on the west arm of Kootenay Lake and has good beaches. Portions of the park has been upgraded with new washrooms and showers. The park is well maintained and is expectioanl clean. There is lots to do in the area including Aisworth Hot Springs. During the summer season you will need to book well in advance of your stay. We visited in September and had our pick of sites. We camped at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Book early as this campground fills quickly during the summer season. September can be great and not busy.

Kokanee Provincial Park is about 18K east of Nelson and within 15-20 mins of the Balfour Ferry. We were lucky to get one of the few non-reservable spots arriving early on a Tuesday & were even near the sandy beach area. This is a spectacular mountain lake with long stretches of sandy beach. This is a heavily used park, most of which is reserved well in advance. One loop is FCFS and that's where we stayed for 4 nights. There is also overflow parking and it was busy every night we were there. The is s sani-dump for an extra charge. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out the Market Day in Nelson on Baker Street - great people watching and loads of fresh fruits & veggies.

Absolutely phenomenal. We stayed with our two children in our 27 foot motor home in a huge site with plenty of room to spare. Fire pits were in great condition, picnic tables were in great condition, showers were hot and clean, bathrooms were clean with electrical outlets as well. Lake was terrific, beach was sandy and excellent for the kids to play on, two adventure playgrounds kept kids well-occupied (both younger and older kids had lots to choose from). Wonderful spot to stay for a week! We camped at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Nice Provincial Park on Kootenay Lake. Kokanee Creek runs through park where you can see the Kokanee Salmon spawning. As typical of BC's Provincial Parks, large secluded sites with no hookups. Walking distance to huge beach and park, but dogs not allowed. Lots of shade. We camped at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park in a Motorhome.
