Full Service Camping
Enjoy the amenities of home while camping in an RV or tenting at the Beaverview RV Park & Campground (2km/1.24mi east of McBride) or King Creek Golf & Winter Club (15km/9.3mi east of McBride). Both sites include a sani-dump, showers, and laundry facilities. Fees vary for tenting or RVing.

The McBride area has three camping recreation sites: The Beaver River Recreation Site (5km/3.1mi east of McBride on Highway 16) has eight-10 campsites, an outhouse, firewood, and garbage pickup during the summer. In the fall, salmon spawn in a side channel of the Beaver River along Holmes Forest Service Road. Take a dip on warm summer days at LaSalle Lakes Recreation Site (40km/25mi west of McBride on a side road). This site has 20 campsites with pit toilets, bear proof garbage containers, and a small beach with a swimming area. LaSalle Lake is stocked with trout. The McBride Peak Half-way Hut is a more rustic site challenging to access. Locals recommend four-wheel drives without trailers, as the access road is steep and windy.
