Pyramid Campground

This 32 site campground, located 1 km in from the Helmcken Falls turnoff, is a great base for exploring the lower end of the park. It’s a very basic BC Parks campground, with a hand pump for water, pit toilets, picnic tables and fire rings.

Staff offer firewood for sale during evening registration. Fee is now 20 dollars per night, with firewood at 7 dollars for a large tub. You can always find a place to camp here, the campground has never been completely full any night since it opened in 1997.

Trails to Pyramid Mountain and Dawson Falls start right at the campground. Bears and deer can often be seen grazing on the campground road.

  • 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.
