Camping in the Riondel Community Campground is a rare experience.
It feels like wilderness, but community amenities are only a short walk
away. Kootenay Lake is on your doorstep and you camp among mature
cedars. We have 34 campsites sites which provide an exceptional
range of choice, but to minimize impact on the lovely old trees, none are
serviced. All but one site have fire-rings and all have picnic tables.
Potable water is available from water stands throughout the grounds;
several are conveniently located for topping up your tanks. Generators
are welcome, but we ask that you limit your running time within posted
hours. For many the natural quiet of the campground is a valued asset.
Firewood is available (cash-basis only). Please see Camp Attendant for firewood. Before lighting a fire, please check provincial fire regulations.
Our bathroom facilities offer flush toilets, cold water sinks, and coin-
operated hot-water showers.
The on site sani-dump facility can be accessed with help from the
Attendant. Registered guests pay $5.00 unregistered guests pay
A short walk south of the campground brings you to “downtown”
Riondel. The Riondel Regional Park provides space for baseball,
soccer, or even a little kite-flying. The Riondel Community Centre
houses community events as well as Riondel Reading Centre and
Riondel & Area Historical Society. Across Eastman Avenue is the
Riondel Market for all your emergency convenience needs, including fresh baked bread and ice cream treats. Further up the street, at the Fire Hall, you
can turn left to find Bob’s Bar & Grill for a real meal, or you can
continue south to reach Riondel Golf Course – a 3 par treasure, or you
can turn right behind the Fire Hall and find the Circle of Friends
Artisan Shop for unique treasures of a different kind. The area around
the community has many fine trails for hiking or biking. But you can
always spend a relaxing day of tanning, swimming, or boating right in
