More opportunities for Kettle River campers
There’s a little extra room for campers at the Kettle River Recreation Area at Rock Creek this year.
Earlier this camping season BC Parks announced they were upgrading the campgrounds by adding 28 more campsites and putting in extra toilets and showers plus new picnic tables.
So far, the showers, toilets and tables are in but the campsites are still a work in progress.
“Due to a delay in the construction schedule, the first-come, first-served camp ground sites 86 to 114 are currently unfinished,” said David Karn, a communications officer for the Government of BC.
The sites are expected to be finished in mid-to-late June, which will increase the chances of getting a spot during the campgrounds peak season.
Included in the upgrades are more trails, which link to the campground loops, and a new sani-station that has been completed.
