Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Invermere is surrounded by parks, with the family-friendly James Chabot Provincial Park only a few minutes drive away.
Swim, go boating or windsurf on Windermere Lake; fish for trout and camp at Whiteswan Lake or visit the spectacular Marble Canyon in Kootenay National Park.
James Chabot Provincial Park
On the shore of Windermere Lake, the family-friendly James Chabot Provincial Park features a sandy beach, a large grassy play area and an adventure playground. The park is just 2km/1.25mi from downtown Invermere. Don't forget the sunscreen.
At the southern end of Columbia Lake, the day-use Canal Flats Provincial Park has a beach and swimming area, a boat launch and picnic area. It's also a popular spot for windsurfers.
