4. Gold Creek Bay Provincial Campground Details

An excellent provincial forestry camp site is available adjacent to Sunshine Houseboats. This rustic and treed campground features 22 sites for all sizes of recreational vehicles and tents. Facility includes three new pit toilets, fire rings, gravel pads and picnic tables. Firewood sales available. Pets must be on a leash. Potable water and ice are available at Sunshine Marina.

First come, first serve so you’ll need to arrive as early as possible (ideally mid-week). Lake Koocanusa is a busy place throughout the summer but especially on the weekends. $14/night.
