Camping Profile: Kimberley Riverside Campground

 This fall, check out the charming city of Kimberley in the Kootenay Rockies and enjoy a Community Fair (Sept 21 & 22), a brand new indoor climbing wall, and other amenities. Kimberley is located on Highway 95A, 32 km (20 mi) north of Cranbrook in south-eastern British Columbia and 407 km (253 mi) west of Calgary, Alberta. 


While in town there's no better place to stay than the Kimberley Riverside Campground. Located only 8 minutes from Kimberley's downtown centre and nestled in the pristine St. Mary River valley, the campground offers incredible scenery, quiet & relaxing surroundings and a wide array of special attractions. Owned by the City of Kimberley, it's operated by the Kimberley Community Development Society as a non-profit organization.

Lodging Profile: Mile High Resort

As the weather starts to cool, consider Logan Lake's Mile High Resort for hunting, snowmobiling, and other adventures.


Open year-round "at the top of the world" where millions of stars light up the night sky, Mile High promises a therapeutic and calm environment.  That said, there's no shortage of activities for all kinds of weather: fishing, boat and kayak rentals, mountain biking, trail hiking, snowmobiling, ice skating, cross country skiing, ice fishing, bird watching, and relaxing.
