Johnstone Creek Provincial Park

 

Located 5 km west of Rock Creek on Highway 3, this small park offers 38 campsites in a forested area next to Johnstone Creek. Approximately half of the campsites in this location are in an open area, while the remaining half are shaded by mature Douglas firs, larch and spruce trees. A short loop trail runs along the creek and leads to gorgeous views of canyons and ravines. Woodpeckers and white-tailed deer often visit the park. This roadside location is often used as an overnight stop by people travelling on Highway 3, or as a base camp to explore the nearby Kettle Valley area.
