Rocking River Campground

This campground is situated on a 10-acre property alongside the Salmo River. The river includes a swimming hole – a great place to cool down on a hot summer day.  The village of Salmo is located 40 km (25 mi) south of the city of Nelson.

It offers spacious sites in a peaceful setting for rv travellers, tenting or large family gatherings.

Electrical hookups are available.

Pets welcome.

On the West Arm of Kootenay Lake resides Nelson, a mountain town with a big city buzz. Known for its welcoming personality and diversity of outdoor adventures, the city itself is full of trendy boutique shops such as Cartolina, Gerick Cycle & Ski, Kootenai Moon, Mountain Baby, Sacred Ride and Roam Shop with some 350 heritage buildings that flourish year-round.

Described as the best Art Town in Canada, for the entire summer, ArtWalk turns the downtown core into a living art gallery. In the warmth, enjoy a trip on the historic Streetcar #23, play in the sand and grass, or just relax at one of the parks.

Nelson doesn’t stop at the city’s edge, but continues onto the lake with paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and numerous other water activities. The excitement continues into the mountains for hiking, biking, climbing, you name it, even golfing with gorgeous views from the scenic Granite Pointe Golf Club.
