Latest Check-Ins

Got here at 1 in the morning, too dark to really see anything but posted up by the barriers for the decommissioned road

Just wanted to share images. Other than that, this place also have a good cell coverage.

Nice place. If you continue down the road in about 200m you will find a nice open space that can fit at least 2 campervans. There are also other hidden spots, but you will probably need smaller van/car that has 4x4. There is also coverage about 2 bars of Rogers-EXT.

This was a quiet spot and we had to drive past a wooden barrier just past the highway. It seemed perfect but the noseeums were horrendous. Our camper has bug screens so we are mosquito proof but not noseeum proof. We packed up and headed further along the highway. At this time of year with a very wet spring the heavy underbrush in this ecosystem will make noseeums terrible. They will probably be dead in a few weeks when it starts to cool off.

I wrote my first text about the mosquito in the morning after my first and only night at that spot. After that an older couple with pitbull dog, very drunk and super weird showed up and patrolled the small street, they obviously had a problem with me parking there. They didn't leave, called somebody and were waiting at the street for police or whoever while constantly checking what I'm doing. I was about to leave anyway so I packed and drove off. Spooky locals warning!

mosquito everywhere!!! driving me nuts. other than that good spot

Très bien pour une nuit assez loin de la route et beau paysages

Stayed 1 night here and it was great. Followed the road until it ended and there was a perfect flat spot for multiple tents and a big firepit. The view of the mountains and the remoteness made this my favorite stop so far. I even stopped for a swim under the highway bridge but I wouldn't recomend it for kids or pets as the current was fairly strong anf there were rapids farthur down stream. You can find some really cool rocks around here too!

I stayed here for one night. Worked out great as a free stop between glacier national and revelstoke National. I was the only car back here. I remained straight on the road until a loop pull out on the right with a fire ring. At this time the bushes lining the road made the road quite narrow. Would not recommend for a large rig. Also I had LTE phone service here.

gravel road with some flat areas for vehicles or tents. It seems like there's a few different spots along the road for camping so just drive up till you find one you like. Nice and close to the Hot springs too.

I went with a RV of 23. A little narrow but without claws. Very nice view of the mountain.

Still a good camp spot for a night or two. The logging road is now closed to vehicular traffic but you can hike up and tent camp further along the ridge of the creek.

This was a beautiful spot. Exactly as described. Easy access entry to to far off highway. Go down the narrow road around 50 feet. Then it opens to a clearing which has nice sound of river and forest around. A few spots here. Great view of mountains. A few other pullouts further but more difficult to access. 4x4 or high clearance for the further spots. We had a 19ft campervan. Lots of mosquitos at this time.

good spot for the night. The sound of the river will drown the highway noise above.

A few flat spots not far from the main highway. Easy access with a van or car, and good enough for tents. No service, no fire rings, water available from the creek. Lots of bears in the area so be very careful.
