Kootenay Lake - Davis Creek & Lost Ledge

Kootenay Lake - Davis Creek & Lost Ledge

Description

Davis Creek and Lost Ledge Campground is situated on the north western shore of Kootenay Lake, 5 kilometres apart and 25 km (16 mi) north of Kaslo off Highway 31. Known for outstanding views of the Purcell mountain range with lakeview, sheltered campsites that provide a million dollar view.

Davis Creek Campground is north of Lost Ledge towards the Lardeau Valley and has recently undergone a reconstruction adding 10 new campsites to the waterfront in the Cove Loop, an upgrade to the drinking water system and easier beach access points with the addition of a large retaining wall.

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.

Davis Creek has 32 campsites with only 10 sites in the Cove Loop in the Discover Camping Reservation system, the rest are first come / first serve.  If you get up there later in the day and no sites are left, 6 overflow sites are available below the creek where you can stay until a site opens up, usually the next morning. Park Hosts, Deb & Rick will do everything they can to get you settled. Not to worry, head on up to one of the prettiest parks in the Kootenays!

Lost Ledge Campground is a small secluded campground with 18 sites on the north western shore of Kootenay Lake, 35 km (16 mi) north of Kaslo on Highway 31, five kilometres south of Davis Creek Campground. Lost Ledge is known for outstanding views of the Purcell mountain range and lakeview sheltered campsites. It is popular with anglers and is equipped with a concrete boat launch and parking for boat trailers.

Offering a true opportunity to get away and relax in a beautiful setting with easy beach access, Kootenay Lake makes kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddle boarding an ideal way to pass the day. When the wind is up, the area is also well known for windsurfing and kite boarding. Early in the summer, swimming at the lake can still be cold.

Kootenay Lake Park is also an excellent base camp for hikers wanting to explore the many trails in the area.
