Set 24 kilometers south of the Revelstoke area, Blanket Creek Provincial Park is exceptionally family-friendly thanks to its numerous camping spots, easy access to regional attractions, and a complete man-made swimming lagoon. Children may enjoy the biking trails, adventure playground, or historic homestead area.
First established in 1982, Blanket Creek Provincial Park covers 318 hectares and forms part of a broader group of parks on the Arrow Lake Reservoir. The nearby Sutherland Falls is a particularly popular destination for visitors, while the wide array of native and imported trees on the homestead offer a surprisingly high amount of diversity in the park’s plant life.
For those who enjoy wildlife, bears often wander through the park in the fall to eat from the fruit trees that remain on the property. Meanwhile, hares, mule deer, and birds live throughout the area. Most of the wildlife here is generally safe to observe from a distance.
Camping opportunities include 105 locations, 82 of which are reservable from mid-May to mid-September. Several of the sites are particularly large, serving as double campgrounds suitable for family gatherings. Other campground features include firewood, sanitation stations, flush washrooms, and hot showers available at no extra charge to registered guests.
