There's only two options for camping in the Kootenay NP. McLeod is one of them. It's July 26, 2016, the height of the season, and half of the loops are closed due to "rest room maintenance". What IS open is not maintained. It's a grim little campground, nestled in a gorgeous valley by the river. Great location for some hikes, but is surely in need of some TLC.

It's our first time camping in Canada, so hopefully this was a singular experience. Yes you can pay by credit card at the self registration station. I'll post pics soon.

FYI- we drove through Marble Canyon CG and it looked no better. So we're moving on to Banff NP with higher hopes!

Nice campground on the southern end of Kootenay National Park. No hookups but water hydrants throughout and a dump station. The restrooms looked like they were abandoned. It has pay stations so take some Canadian dollars. The nightly rate is $21.50 Canadian. If you want to have a fire you have to pay $7 for a fire permit. It's not a bad deal cause they provide all the cut and slit wood you can burn. There are great trails connected to the site. Radium hot springs and a nice lake village called Invermere is just a short drive out of the valley. Take the swinging bridge trail to a remote alpine lake. A few of the sites closest to the river have of view of the rocky peaks. The loops are alittle tight and you may have to hold back a few tree branchs as your pulling through. We didn't spend much time here since we were headed north but would like to see it again.

Journal July 20: Departed Sandy first thing in the morning, and stopped to stretch our legs at White River Falls, Tygh Valley, Oregon which is an hour and a half from our house. From there,...
