Our friends headed home on Sunday afternoon but we decided to stay another night at MacDonald Creek Provincial Park. We spent another afternoon sitting on the beach and wandering around the campsite. Monday morning we headed north past Nakusp toward Revelstoke, B.C. where Maxx was treated to his second ferry ride on a much bigger ferry and a longer crossing. We were sandwiched in the middle so I couldn’t get any pictures but I did get a shot of all the inuksuk’s along the beach … Many people must have spent time building these while waiting for the ferry to come 🙂
Our destination for Monday night was Crazy Creek Resort and Waterfall located between Revelstoke, B.C. and Sicamous, B.C. We have driven by this resort many times on our way out to Alberta so we thought we should finally see what it was all about. We arrived in the early afternoon and chose to dry camp for $27.00 a night, full hook-up is $40.00 a night and the sites are a long distance from the hot pools. Our site was in a nice wooded area but it wasn’t really worth $27.00 a night. Once we were set up we hiked up to the suspension bridge and waterfall, this trek cost another $19.00 for the two of us.
The term hike really isn’t the best description; an easy walk up a slight incline is a more appropriate description. The waterfall is pretty and the best views are from the center of a suspension bridge, which crosses over to a gift shop. Honestly unless you really like suspension bridges (and I don’t!) I think there are many other waterfalls that are just as pretty and can be viewed for free … such as the waterfall at Fintry Provincial Park that I blogged about this past June.
We followed our hike with a visit to the four hot pools which range in temperature from 63F/15C to 104F/40C.
We chose to purchase a multi visit pass at $33.00 for the two of us and we did make another visit later Monday night and again on Tuesday before we headed home.
All in all we were glad we stopped but I do think it a little overpriced for what you get.
On the way home we had to stop on Highway 97A to allow a HUGE black bear to cross, I was so busy admiring how big and healthy he looked that I forgot to take a picture 🙂
Until next time …
