Pilot Bay Provincial Park

Pilot Bay Provincial Park

Pilot Bay Provincial Park, Kootenay Bay, BC

This park is the safest harbour on Kootenay Lake where boaters often gather to weather out the summer storms. The water is warm in the bay for swimming and some of the best fishing for trophy “gerrard” trout is nearby. There is an extensive network of hiking trails through the park and along the Pilot Peninsula. It is an easy walk to the historic Pilot Bay lighthouse which has been restored by area volunteer groups. Primarily marine accessed, the park can be reached by road.

There are wilderness/ walk-in campsites in the park, but no facilities are provided. This park is user-maintained and you must pack out what you pack in. Fees for overnight camping apply year-round.
