Located only 5 km (3 mi) north of the city of Revelstoke, on Highway #23N, the Revelstoke Dam is one of the most powerful dams in British Columbia and the second largest generating facility on the Columbia River on the Canadian side of the border.
Bring your camera and take in the breathtaking view from the top of the 175-metre (575 ft) dam; so high up that cars in the parking lot below look like toys.
Enjoy the interactive displays, learn about how power is made and browse through the First Nations Gallery with exhibits about the art, history and culture of the Secwepemc (Shuswap), Okanagan and Ktunaxa peoples. (The First Nations Gallery is currently closed due to the COVID pandemic – check back for 2022 season information.)
Join one of the daily guided tours or explore on your own with a self-guided tour. Audio tour rentals are also available in multiple languages.
