Our Services

We invite you to stay at Riondel Community Campground and experience this unique wilderness setting. Our 43 diverse campsites provide an exceptional range of choice, from shoreline camping to sleeping amongst the old-growth cedars. Most sites have a fire ring (except sites 33, 37, 38, 39 and the two tent-only sites). Community fire-pits and picnic tables are on-site for use. Potable water is available, but not at each site. We have sites for tents and for large RVs.  To operate as “Green” as possible and to limit the impact on this pristine area, our sites are not powered. Generators are welcome, usage is limited to certain time – please ask Camp Attendant! This ensures all guests experience the beauty of Riondel Community Campground.

Single person tent site

We now offer two tent-only sites, shoreline camping on a raised tent platform (based on single adult occupancy& up to 1 extra person). BOOKING PRIORITY is to cyclists, canoers/kayakers and hikers (non-motorized vehicle access).


Firewood is available (cash-basis only). Please see Camp Attendant for firewood.

Community Services

A short walk takes you to downtown Riondel, where you’ll find our licensed convenience store (Riondel Market).  If golf is your thing we have a wonderful par 3 golf course (Riondel Golf Course), ideal for families with kids. No pressure just lots of fun!  Besides a firehall, ambulance station and community hall, Riondel has an artisan shop (Circle of Friends) featuring work by local artists, plus a seasonal tea room – Simply Simon’s.

Enjoy spending time outdoors and exploring Nature?  This small community is surrounded by miles of beautiful trails, for hiking or biking. And of course we’re right beside beautiful Kootenay Lake, so you have the choice of boating, kayaking, canoeing or simply relaxing on the beach.

Only a 15-minute drive from Riondel Campground, hop aboard Kootenay Lake ferry, the longest, free ferry ride in Canada.
