Day 5 – July 13
Lake Loiuse, Field, Golden, Revelstoke
Williamson’s Lake Campground (4/5)
The day has started at 8 am for us – the earliest so far. After a brief breakfast we went to Lake Louise, spent an eternity trying to find a parking spot large enough to accommodate an RV our size, took a few pictures and left. Lake Louise is a typical tourist trap: though very beautiful, it’s fairly small, and very crowded. The canoe rides are $45 per person, and they even have lineups with that price. It’s worth checking out if you’re nearby, but probably not worthy a lengthy trip. Originally, the plan was to head to Jasper, but the road was closed because of the forest fires, so we decided to take a route via Golden (a definition of boring), where we stopped for groceries, and stay in Revelstoke for the night.
On the way to Revelstoke, we have stopped for lunch in Field, BC.
Williamson’s Lake Campground review (4/5):
Williamson Lake (should be dubbed as “Mosquito Lake”) is a family-oriented campground, with a waterfront view – the lake is temper and even has some fish. There are fire pits and clean washrooms/showers (free for use).
If you are visiting this campground – make sure to bring enough mosquito spray, or you risk being eaten alive.
We have over-welcomed our stay by about 20 minutes, and were politely asked to leave by a member of staff. The spots are right next to one another, and are not separated. There kids playground is between the lake and the RV park. Some leafy trees are present on the campground.
After some research, the decision was made to stop at Salmon Arm, at the Viewpoint RV Park.
