Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park

Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park

Kokanee Glacier Road, Balfour, BC

Located north of Nelson, ruggedly beautiful Kokanee Glacier Park offers excellent backcountry adventure for the whole family. Sitting mostly above 1,800 metres in elevation, the park has two glaciers – Kokanee and Woodbury – which feed over 30 lakes and are the headwaters of many creeks.

Kokanee Glacier, Woodbury and Silver Spray Cabins are maintained by the Alpine Club of Canada. For the winter season, the Kokanee Glacier Cabin offers availability through a lottery system – there is no availability for walk-ins. For the summer season, it is recommended that you make reservations for all cabins if you want to be assured of a bed to sleep in. If the public chooses to walk-in and there are beds available, you can register at that time.

There are 30 wilderness, walk-in campsites in the park, but no facilities are provided.
