Wild British Columbia Camping by the Glacier

Description

Explore this incredible primitive campsite that may have once been a mining site or mill, with ruins and debris adding to its unique charm. Overlooking a spectacular glacier, this spot offers absolutely phenomenal views. Access requires crossing a very dilapidated, mostly-collapsed bridge, so it’s best for compact, high-clearance four-wheel drive vehicles. Not for the faint of heart.

Completely off the grid, the campsite has no cell service and no fire ring but offers a decent view of the sky for satellite connectivity. Nestled between tall, glacial mountains, it provides an awe-inspiring backdrop for an adventurous camping experience.

This site has enough room for two or three overland vehicles. It’s a perfect spot for those seeking solitude and stunning natural beauty. This hidden gem is strongly recommended for a memorable outdoor adventure. Border crossing from Canada into the United States is required to access this area.

During my visit in August of 2018, it rained most of the time. While this hindered my ability to enjoy my surroundings, the inclement conditions delivered some incredibly dramatic scenery.

Always tread lightly, leave no trace, respect the wishes of landowners, and leave campsites cleaner than you found them. Be the very best steward of our public spaces that you can possibly be so that they remain public.

Status – OPEN

We’ve been here in-person, but it might have been a while. To our knowledge, this spot is currently open and accessible, but that can easily change, so always have a back-up plan!
