  • Living 5 mins from this beautiful park is a blessing, we Hike, and bike through the park as often as we can.  more »
  • Beautiful park and worth it to see the springs, BUUUT it's definitely a family park. My bf and I had a tiny campsite nestled between two very large families (not that this is a bad thing) but it's not...  more »
  • While I wouldn't go to the area just to visit Kootenay, it is worth visiting. The scenery is still beautiful and with less of the crowds than Banff. The Paint Pots sounded really interesting but it's ...  more »

  • Beautiful park! Enjoy a drive through the snow capped mountains and spectacular natural beauty. Stunning vistas await you around every bend. The roads are generally well maintained in winter but you should check for ice. Hit up Radium for an inexpensive soak in natural outdoor hot springs. Keep an eye out for plenty of wildlife, obey signs and speed limits and you'll have a safe and enjoyable time!
  • An outstanding outdoor experience. Besides the gleaming lakes and rivers accessible from the highway, one can also find dozens of hidden spots in this national park.
  • Kootenay National Park is beautiful - but it's a national park, you should know that!! It basically follows HWY 93 south from Castle Junction down to Radium as one gateway to the Columbia Valley. There are tons of great hikes and spots to stop along the highway, and you can see lakes, wildlife, gorgeous mountain ranges, and the remnants of forest fires. Make sure you have good brakes before heading down the hill! Marble Canyon is a cool place to stop, as are the Paint Pots.
  • Great place to have family time. The area can get busy during tourist high times (Holidays/Summer) but you can usually find some quiet places that will blow you away if you search for them.
  • Great hiking, trail running and various outdoor activities. Just a great place to get outdoors and enjoy.
