Please respect all rules and regulations and ensure you respect the site and your camping neighbours. Updates will be posted here when fee collection is to resume; until then enjoy the free camping at this beautiful site. *Please note that there is a concern up stream and there is potential for sudden debris movement down slope during heavy rains and/or periods of high daytime temperature. Given this camping should be avoided along the stream during these times and if river levels suddenly rise or if rocks or debris is heard coming down the stream please leave these sites immediately. Garland Bay is a large open beach site on the east shore of Kootenay Lake. This site receives very heavy use during the summer season. Very popular area for swimming, camping, fishing and boating.
