Some of the best wilderness adventures in all of BC are those in Kootenay National Park (KNP) campgrounds. The park is camper-friendly, the scenery spectacular, wildlife is abundant and it’s within an easy drive of Alberta.
KNP has a camping adventure for you and your family this summer. Whether you like camping under the stars, in a tent, a trailer, a motorhome or even something a little more comfortable (like an oTENTik), you and thousands of other outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy a perfect summer vacation right here. You can choose from 3 Kootenay National Park campgrounds, each with magnificent scenery, plenty of hiking trails, abundant wildlife for viewing – and all of them close to the hot pools at Radium Hot Springs BC.
Protect your pet. Keep it on a leash at all times. Do not leave it unattended or outside at night.
Never approach or feed wildlife, regardless of size. If you are viewing wildlife, remain 30 to 100m away.
