17 Jul Best Camping In Golden, BC – Top Golden, BC Campgrounds
Rafting and camping are perfectly suited to each other. After a great trip on the river, nothing is finer than closing out the day in a quiet setting with a campfire and unlimited laughter. Golden, BC campgrounds are varied and filled with options (just like our river rafting roster!). Pitch your tent next to a river, next to a lake, or on a plateau. Each campground is unique and offers its own personality. When planning your next rafting experience with Wild Water Adventures, consider the following campgrounds.

1. The Ranch, RV Park & Campground
The Ranch is so much more than just a Golden, BC campground. The spacious 400-acre riverside property boasts a vast assortment of amenities and facilities, including a beach and landing site for paragliders. It is an ideal holiday destination for adventurers of all ages. Visitors can tent, plug in their RV or even sleep in a yurt!
Camp alongside the Kicking Horse River and be only a few minutes walk from charming downtown Golden. After picking your site, saunter along the riverside trails leading to restaurants, grocery stores and the ever-popular Kicking Horse Cinema. This site is perfect for those who love trains!
If panorama views are key requirements for your next camp spot, then look no further than Whispering Spruce. It’s one of the most beautiful Golden, BC campgrounds! Just a few minutes out of town, the campground perches on a plateau high above the Kicking Horse River. Facing southward, campers enjoy sweeping views of the vast Columbia Valley and Rocky Mountain trench. While at the campground, keep a watch out for visiting Big Horn Sheep!
4. Cedar Lake Recreation Campground
Rustic, secluded and quiet, Cedar Lake is the perfect place for minimalist camping. A myriad of hiking and biking trails surround the area and some even lead to other tucked-away lakes. This camping location is a real treat (and my personal favourite). Remember to bring your own water, firewood and bathing suit!
A bit further down the road from Golden, on 260-km long Kinbasket Lake, is a wilderness paradise. With no other accommodation or facilities in sight, this remote, yet fully-serviced, campground awaits to welcome land and water lovers alike.
