Vehicle-accessible camping

Beaver Creek Park has one campground situated along the Columbia River. The park offers services during the peak season, from May to September.

The Beaver Creek campground is currently closed. It is undergoing a facility upgrade. Reservations for the 2023 camping season are currently on hold.

There are 19 campsites, some of which have river views. There are no pull-through sites and most of the sites are medium-sized. Approximately eight sites will accommodate larger recreational vehicles. All the sites are evenly spaced and semi-shaded in a new-growth mixed forest.

There are no payphones in the park. The closest store and payphone are located at the Waneta Junction, approximately four kilometres north of the park.


The campground has its own local reservation system. Reservations cannot be made through the BC Parks reservation service.


When you arrive at the park, select a vacant site and staff will come around to collect fees. There is a gate and staff residence at the park entrance. This provides 24-hour security. 

Accessibility information

There is a wheelchair-accessible toilet in the day-use area. The day-use shelter is also accessible. The shower building at the park entrance provides easy access to showers and flush toilets.

Picnic areas

This park has a large day-use area, which is alongside Beaver Creek. There is a picnic shelter that can be booked for large gatherings, through the Kiwanis Club. Reservations cannot be made through the BC Parks reservations service.

The Kiwanis Club provides a propane barbeque for those who rent the shelter. Parking for 40 vehicles is provided and there is disabled access to the site. The area also has a large open-grassed area for sports and a playground for younger children. Bocci pits, a concrete basketball court, and a softball area are available. Other facilities onsite include water taps, six picnic tables, and pit toilets.

Pit or flush toilets

The shower building at the park entrance has flush toilets. There are also two pit toilets at the campground entrance. The day-use area has one toilet building, which has running water and separate pit toilets for men and women. 


Hot showers are available in the shower building at the park entrance. The fees for showers are included in the camping fees.

Drinking water

There is one cold-water tap available in the campground and two cold-water taps in the day-use area.


An adventure playground with swing set, monkey bars, and slide is located in the day-use area. The equipment is on a sand base.

Boat launch

Beaver Creek Park has a paved single-wide boat launch with a 10% grade located just at the campground turnoff. Launching trailer-towed boats should only be attempted by vehicles equipped with four-wheel drive. The shoreline is rocky and not recommend for boat mooring.


The park operator provides firewood for a fee of $5 per bundle. 

To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please do not gather firewood from the area around your campsite or anywhere else in the park. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds valuable organic matter to the soil. 

You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. Bring a portable stove for cooking.


Beaver Creek Park has one main walking trail that follows along the Columbia River bank from the south end of the campground. The trail is approximately one kilometre long and goes through open grasslands, following a level terrace above the river. This is a popular hike for local nature enthusiasts. 

For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Taking shortcuts destroys plant life and soil structure.


Due to the size and swift current of the Columbia River as it runs through Beaver Creek Park, canoeing and kayaking should only be attempted by those with extensive experience.

Rainbow trout and Walleye are common species in the section of Columbia River running through Beaver Creek Park. Whitefish are also present. Brook trout are found in Beaver Creek itself. 

Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. Check regulations for non-harvest species.

Wildlife viewing

Viewpoints are located along the Columbia River, which offer good wildlife viewing opportunities.

Pets on leash

There is no off-leash area in Beaver Creek Park. Pets must be leashed at all times and they are not allowed in the day-use area. You are responsible for your pet’s behavior and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to the potential for problems with bears and other wildlife.


Bicycles are restricted to roadways in Beaver Creek Park. They are not allowed on trails. However, there is a secondary road that winds through farm lands next to the park, which can be used by bikes.

In particular, please note that bicycles with electric-assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails in this park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception is for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.
