This campground, 15 minutes south of Nakusp is by far the most popular in the region. For a good spot near the lake in the summer months it is necessary to book 4 months in advance. It is our number one pick for meeting up with friends.

The campground is on the shore of Arrow lake with incredible views of the surrounding mountains. Depending on the water level in the lake, there can be huge beaches just a few steps away from the camp sites.

McDonald Creek has full services including electricity (in some sites), showers, flush toilets, and running water.

This is a great spot to access all the nearby hot springs – Halfway, St. Leon, Nakusp, and Halcyon.
