As we continue on our #epicroadtrip2018, Norman and I are constantly surprised and baffled by the sheer amount of beautiful, fun, worthwhile places we visit. Some of these places are well known, others…. Not so much.
We spent a good few days in Revelstoke, and as the adage says – time flies when you’re having fun! Revelstoke is truly one of those places that has something for EVERYONE. Want to enjoy the water? Rent a kayak or go for a guided stand up paddleboarding tour. Hiking? Revelstoke is a hiker’s paradise. Shopping? Downtown Revelstoke has some great shops. Sick of the great outdoors, and want to spend the afternoon or evening taking in a film? The Roxy has 2 showings per day.
Revelstoke truly has anything and everything (ever wanted some curry, but your family is in the mood for Schnitzel? Have no fear – there’s a combo Indian/German restaurant!), our preferences for activities might not be the same as yours. Always feel free to contact us for information and recommendations – we are happy to help!
SO, without further ado, here are our recommendations for a few activities in Revelstoke:
For camping, we would heartily recommend Williamson Lake Campground. It is in a relatively quiet park of town, and is very peaceful. ALSO – the Revelstoke Mountain Resort has free dry camping on the mountaintop – just follow the signs! You’d be hard pressed to find better views, but be aware – there is VERY LITTLE SHADE. On a hot day, this option might not be ideal.
We hope you include Revelstoke in your trip through BC – it was truly a wonderful place to visit, and if we had more time, we would have stayed longer!
