Who would say no to camping in the middle of the Canadian Rocky Mountains? Quinn Creek Campground gave us an opportunity to camp between the Columbia River and Highway 95 while travelling in British Columbia. This campsite is at the backdrop of Purcell Mountains on one side and the Canadian Rockies on the other side giving it a pleasing scenery, a place you wanna be during summer.
Quinn Creek Campground is located along Highway 95 approximately 44 kilometres south of Golden Town and offers both sheltered and unsheltered tenting site, unserviced and fully serviced RV site as well as seasonal and monthly camping sites. Camping fees range between $20 and $40 per night with access to shower and laundry services.
We visited on Canada Day weekend and to our surprise, the locals had arranged fireworks in the evening to celebrate Canada’s 150th. The big celebration came as a huge surprise.
I also had a chance to talk to one of the villagers and she mentioned that the whole village gathers every Canada Day to celebrate together both young and old. Isn’t that cool in this digital world we’re living in?
During the period we visited, the area was experiencing power cuts so we woke up and power was off which meant we couldn’t use the shower. The two options available were jumping into the nearby creek whose water was glacier cold or going without a shower that day. Such a tight place to be eh: D

Nearby, just past Spillimacheen is the Lower Bugaboo Falls Trail in Brisco which is a must do. It takes 30 minutes or so to hike up and the waterfalls are breathtaking.
