Just for camping, Rosebery Park is located just north of New Denver, on Highway 6. To the west, across Slocan Lake, is the magnificent Valhalla Park. Tucked along the banks of Wilson Creek, this park has an intimate, forested creek setting that offers secluded camping for overnight travelers or visitors seeking more adventure.
It is a good staging area for backcountry exploration of nearby Valhalla, Kokanee Glacier and Goat Range Parks. Visitors can also explore the numerous ghost-mining towns nearby and after an exciting day, relax in the many commercial or undeveloped natural hot springs in the area.
All campsite reservations must be made the BC Parks reservations system. When reservations are not available all campsites function as first come, first served.

Campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented.
To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
Pit or flush toilets
This park has three sets of pit toilets conveniently located in the campground.

Located in the southern interior of BC on Highway 6, this park is 5 km north of New Denver and 40 km south of Nakusp. It is situated on the banks of Wilson Creek on the east side of Slocan Lake.
The park was established in 1959. Roseberry Park lies in the Ktunaxa/Kinbasket, Okanagan, Shuswap, Westbank and Sinixt First Nations traditional territories.
This 32 hectare park has a minor conservation role as a natural forested area bordering Wilson Creek. Flowers, trees and shrubs are part of the parks natural heritage, please do not damage or remove them.
Within the forested creek habitat, small mammals such as squirrels and chipmunks are commonly observed. Park users should always be aware of bears and other wildlife in our park environment. Never feed or approach bears or other wildlife. Please view all wildlife from a distance.
