DescriptionThis popular camping, swimming, picnicking and water play destination is only 2 kilometres (1 mi) south of the city of Cranbrook. This 34 site campground situated among a lakeside Douglas fir and larch forest, is a peaceful and welcome retreat for the traveling public and visitors to the nearby city of Cranbrook.
The campground was rebuilt in 2001 to accommodate recreational vehicles. Sunbathing, swimming, non-motorized boating and picnicking are popular activities at Jimsmith Park that are located in a day-use waterfront area. This is the perfect setting for nature study and wildlife viewing. In winter, the park is transformed into a snowy playground for tobogganing and ice skating.
This park offers vehicle accessible campsites on a first-come, first-served basis - campsite reservations are not accepted. The Park is open year round and the campground is open from mid-June to September.
