Clearwater Lake / Falls Creek campgrounds

Located at the very south end of Clearwater Lake, these two adjoining campgrounds have 80 campsites, a Sani dump, a store, running water, summer Naturalist programs, boat tours, canoe rentals, a small café and pay per use showers.

The Clearwater Lake campground is 50% reservable and Falls Creek is 100% reservable through the Discover camping reservation system. Though neither campground is actually on the lake, there is a trail to a picnic area that gives you a view of Osprey Falls and the south end of the lake.

Fees for 2016 are 23 dollars per night for camping, 5 dollars for sani dumping, 7 dollars per tub for firewood, and 2 dollars per 3 minutes shower time. Occupancy is very low in May, June, and September, moderate in July, and high in August. Because of the distance in from the highway, reservations are recommended for July and August, reservations can be made through www.discovercamping.ca

Several trails start at or near the campground including the misnamed Chain Meadows trail, which meanders through about 17 km of trees and hills, as well as the Norman’s Eddy trail that leads to a catch and release fishing area on the Clearwater River.

    There are several picnic stops along the Clearwater River, including Red Springs and Deer Creek.

  • About Clearwater

    About an hour and 20 minute drive north of Kamloops, Clearwater has one or two of everything; a small supermarket(Safety Mart), a hospital, a library, a couple of hardware stores, several auto mechanics, fine dining, and lots of excellent hotels, B and B's, and motels.

    The town is also a hive of outdoor adventure. You can try just about every outdoor activity imaginable, including:

    • Whitewater rafting & kayaking
    • Dog sledding
    • Horseback riding
    • Guided fly fishing
    • Guided canoe adventures
    • Cross country skiing
    • Hiking
  • Blue River

    Blue River is a good place for a pit stop, but don't look for much in the way of facilities. There are several motels and restaurants, a couple gas stations, two general stores, and a medical station. That’s about it. There's no bank, so if you need cash get it in Clearwater or Valemount. The same goes for most groceries and camping supplies.
