We love visiting Blanket Creek Provincial Park, South of Revelstoke. I had trouble choosing a category, since it could be hiking, camping, bird watching, bear watching, nature tours, swimming, as well as Parks.
The picnic area at Blanket Creek is beside a small lake, which would be perfect for swimming. Above the beach the picnic tables are on a grassy area full of gopher holes. The gophers pop up and may join your picnic! A short hike takes you to the lake on the Columbia River, where there are beautiful views of the mountains. Another hike leads to Sutherland Falls, a dramatic falls dropping into the creek which runs to the Columbia. It was on the steep bluff across the creek that we saw a bear this Spring.
There is also a very nice camping area, for both seasonal and overnight campers.
