The main draws of the park are the hiking, the wildflowers and the opportunities for back country camping.
Being located in the rugged Selkirk Mountains provides the park with amazing views of jagged mountains.
Hiking and back country camping are the major activities of Mount Revelstoke National Park. Marked, maintained hiking trails from the summit of Mount Revelstoke take hikers to alpine lakes and back country campsites.
The views from the top of the mountain are breathtaking, as are the wildflowers that come out late in the summer.
Like the other Canadian National Parks, entry is about $10 per person per day ($20 for families or groups, up to seven people in one vehicle). However, you can get an annual pass (good for the month you buy it, the next month and a full year after that) for just under $70 ($140 for family or group).
To get to the park, take Highway 1 east from Revelstoke for about 2 kilometres to the turn off the Meadows in the Sky Parkway. This 26-kilometre long winding road leads to the top of Mount Revelstoke. The road is only open from June to September, after the snow has melted.
Tourist buses are available from Revelstoke.
The closest town for food and drink is Revelstoke.
Unlike many of British Columbia's National Parks, there is no official campsite at Mount Revelstoke National Park. However, back country camping is available, at a cost of $8 per day. Permits need to be purchased from Parks Canada.
