Rosebery Provincial Park

About This Park

Just for camping, Rosebery Provincial Park is located just north of New Denver, on Highway 6. To the west, across Slocan Lake, is the magnificent Valhalla Provincial Park. Tucked along the banks of Wilson Creek, this park has an intimate, forested creek setting that offers secluded camping for overnight travellers or visitors seeking more adventure.

It is a good staging area for backcountry exploration of nearby Valhalla, Kokanee Glacier and Goat Range Provincial Parks. Visitors can also explore the numerous ghost-mining towns nearby and after an exciting day, relax in the many commercial or undeveloped natural hot springs in the area.

Facilities Available at this Park

Campfires

Campfires

While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
