Bear Creek Provincial Park in Kelowna Reopening This Month

Bear Creek Provincial Park, a destination among campers in Kelowna in British Columbia (B.C.), is scheduled to reopen on March 22, according to a Kelowna Now news report. 

The McDougall Creek wildfire, which ravaged the Westside Road area, caused concerns about the fate of the 143-site campground. However, the campground was spared from fires. 

Bear Creek Park, in the Central Okanagan Basin along the western shores of Okanagan Lake, unveils the natural beauty and recreational bounty of the region. This park is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, offering lakeside camping complemented by over 400 meters of inviting sandy beaches. 

Despite the campground’s reopening, Kaloya Contracting reveals that the trail system located across Westside Road will not be accessible to the public. Stephens Coyote Ridge and Rose Valley regional parks will continue to be closed.

Two of its regional parks, Raymer Bay and Traders Cove, are expected to reopen next month. These parks are located in proximity to Bear Creek Provincial Park.

Bear Creek Park showcases hiking trails that promise visitors a blend of scenic beauty. The trails wind through a landscape where Bear Creek has sculpted a dramatic canyon into the bedrock.

Bear Creek Park is equipped with a range of facilities designed to enhance the camping experience. Among these amenities are accessible features. Campers have access to drinking water, playgrounds for children, sani-stations for RVs, electrical hook-ups, designated areas for campfires, picnic spots, a variety of toilets, including pit and flush options, and showers.

The park offers a plethora of activities to engage in, from hiking along its scenic trails to swimming in the refreshing waters of Okanagan Lake. Canoeing and fishing provide a peaceful escape for those looking to connect with the water.

Whether seeking adventure on its trails, Bear Creek Park offers relaxation on its beaches or a peaceful camping experience. For camping reservations at Bear Creek Provincial Park, reservations will become available on March 31.
