The Kaslo Municipal Campground is located in beautiful downtown Kaslo right on the shores of Kootenay Lake. Our camping area is a nice shady, grassy field that is separated from the RV portion of the campground. We've booked the campsite from Thursday to Sunday to allow us time to explore some of BC's best riding area.
Last year the cost was $10 per tent per night and we don't anticipate a change this year. Click on the link in the venue section below for directions and a map.
The campground is a short walk to the downtown area where you'll find a great mix of eclectic shops and restaurants. You can tour the SS Moyie paddle wheeler which is on display on the Kaslo Waterfront. There is also a great circle walking tour of the town.
As part of the weekend a trip to the almost ghost town of Sandon is well worth the trip. There is a good museum there and the old power plant has been restored and is open for tours. It has been in continuous operation for over 100 years. If you are really adventurous and the weather is good a run up to Idaho Peak will give you some fantastic views of the Slocan Valley.
A great circle route starts up Hwy 31 to the head of Kootenay Lake and Duncan Dam. This first portion is wonderful twisty pavement with virtually no traffic. If you enjoy some gravel the road continues north past Trout Lake before circling over to Galena Bay then south to Nakusp and New Denver. This is an excellent day trip.
If you're looking for a circle route that involves only pavement, the loop south through Nelson, west to Castlegar, north to Slocan and New Denver is awesome as well.
This is a great chance to meet and greet fellow VBMWR members and to explore some great country. We hope to see you all there.
