FIRE SAFETY: For safety reasons (the sight of a melted Winnebago is enough to make a grown man cry) fires are only permitted in the fire pit at your site. Please do not put garbage in the fire pits. Absolutely no fire pits on the beach – except in designated location. Firewood is available from the campground hosts – please, no scavenging for firewood.

BATHROOMS: Bathrooms will be closed for a short period every day. We only clean one building at a time, so bathroom facilities are always available.

Shower Instructions: Deposit a $1.00 coin, pull the handle towards you to turn the water on (and push it back in when you’re done). You’ll get about four minutes of water and you can adjust the temperature just like you would at home.

PET POLICY: Pets need to be on a leash within the Village of New Denver, except for in the designated off-leash along the south side of Carpenter Creek. We have strategically placed “Poop & Scoop” dispensers and waste bins in the park for your convenience. Please pick up after your dog and make sure it doesn’t wander.


Recreation Equipment Available: Bocce Balls, badminton racquets, beach volleyballs and horseshoes may be obtained from the campground host.

Wind can be unpredictable. In the event of strong winds it is recommended that you roll up your awning.

WILDLIFE:  The Village of New Denver was designated an official Bearsmart Community in 2015.  More information regarding human-wildlife conflict can be found on the Wildsafe BC official website.
