Tourism Valemount

Camping

Valemount, BC, is your stop on the Yellowhead Highway for front and backcountry camping and RVing

Tent, Trailer or Teepee

You’ve just found one of the best places to camp between Edmonton, Alberta and Vancouver, BC. Revive those memories of crackling fires and the sticky marshmallow fingers. Breathe in the fresh scent of deep cedar, hemlock and pine forests that surround Valemount. Rekindle your love of nature and create more memories to last a lifetime. The only distractions here are the ones Mother Nature created.

Hike, fish, raft, ATV, or bike the day away. Then, come back to camp, relax and get ready for another day of adventures. Let the cool summer breezes lull you into the best sleep you’ve had in years. Finding a quiet spot here is almost as easy as unrolling your sleeping bag.

A Home Away from Home

For those who love to spend the summer seeing the country by RV, Valemount is an ideal place to stay. You’ll find large, pull in spots with 30 amp service, WiFi, laundry and showers within an easy walk of the village. There are also privately-owned campgrounds for family reunions, weddings, golf tournaments or large RV convoys. For solitude, drive into the forest where there are several campgrounds with large, treed sites complete with hook-ups.

Camp in Mount Robson Provincial Park

You’re sure to find the right spot for you in the 219,829 ha of Mount Robson Provincial Park. Fall asleep with majestic Mount Robson at your back, and awaken to the melodies of over 180 species of birds. Reserve a campsite at Robson Meadows, the largest of the campgrounds, or try your luck at Robson Rivers Campground, within walking distance of the Mount Robson Visitor Centre. For a rustic get-away, head to the Lucerne Campground, which features two walk or cycle-in sites. There’s a nice beach on Yellowhead Lake adjacent to the Lucerne Campground that is ideal for a chilly dip.

Hike and Camp to Berg Lake

Awaken your inner explorer with a hiking and camping adventure to Berg Lake. This 23 km (14 mi) trail crosses three biogeoclimatic zones, has a climb of 800 m (2,625 ft) and offers spectacular views along the way. Beyond Kinney Lake, make your way into the Valley of a Thousands Falls where you’ll find the Mist, Berg and Robson glaciers. Keep a watch out for moose, deer, and elk. Be bear smart, as black bear and grizzlies make their home here. We recommend you make reservations for the seven campgrounds along the trail.

Camp, Hike and Boat

Spend the day hiking until you come across a sunny patch beside a beautiful and remote creek, pitch your tent and watch as the heavens fill with the starlight. Spectacular vistas and the enviable solitude is right here in the Robson Valley. Camp out at Kinbasket Lake or Horse Creek.

Yellowjacket Creek and Griffin Sawmill Recreation Site are both well suited for family reunions. For a larger group on Kinbasket, head over to the Canoe Reach Marina, with 17 campsites with boat access and moorage. Hike in to Little Lost Lake and pitch a tent. Try riverside camping at the Tete Jaune Spawning Grounds, an open campsite along the McLennan River with a foot trail to the Fraser River. For kayakers, give the Upper Canoe Recreation Site a try. Camp alongside the Canoe River and spend the day running its course.

We recommend you make reservations before you arrive. Contact the Visitor Centre for more information.
