Stay & Play This Summer at Revelstoke

If you ever get an opportunity to visit Revelstoke our family would all agree and say “Do it!”. Go visit. Summer, Winter, Fall, Spring. It’s all beautiful and lovely. We enjoy visiting Revelstoke so much at any time of the year, this was our first visit during Summer. The drive from our place to Revelstoke is about 6 hours. It’s a drive that we love to take. The kids bring their headphones and special bag full of goodies. We also brought Miss Macy with us on this trip and she did so well. 

Our trip had a pack agenda, which is something we love. We always love to include site seeing along the way and visiting special beaches and trails to stretch our legs. In and around Revelstoke there really is so much to do to keep the whole family entertained and having fun!

1.Basecamp Resort

We started our trip off with a virtual check in at Basecamp Resorts. No need to in person check in everything was handled online & a door code was sent to our phones to get into our room. It was so fast, efficient and 100% convenient to make a check in super fast. 

Our spacious room was the best size for the 5 of us. With a fold out futon bed for the kids and dog. It also has a full sized kitchen full of amenities. Laundry, which when traveling with kids, it’s the best thing in the world. A separate room & bathroom. Another beautiful part was that because it is so pet friendly, we had a great backyard and patio where Macy could run around freely and do her thing. 

The hot tub is located on the second level outside. When that sunset hit, it was just such amazing views. The hot tub area has two hot tubs, one which is just slightly warmer than the other and you can text guest services to book your private hot tub time which is 30 minutes.

2.The Enchanted Forest

The following day we packed up the kids and Macy, we drove 20 minutes outside of Revelstoke to The Enchanted Forest. I would recommend this stop to any adult & child. It was so fun for the whole family. It is pet friendly too! So we brought Macy and toured around the fairy tale forest full of things to see. Opening up in 1960 by artist Doris Needham and her husband Ernest. They handmade without moulds all the 350 magical figures. It’s the home of BC’s tallest treehouse!

Open Hours: Seven days a week from May 7th 9:00am-5:00pm & 9:00am-7:00pm Season Closing date TBD

Admission: Adult $14 Senior $12 Child (3-15) $9 Infant (0-2) Free

3.Sky Trek Adventure Park

Right next to The Enchanted Forest, Sky Trek Adventure Park is conveniently next door. We walked right over and started our Sky Trek Adventure Park. The kids enjoyed this so much and they burned a ton of energy. Each started their day at the rock climbing station & sky drop. Both kids did both which was so cool to see. They then suited up to head to two different courses because of their ages. Ella went to her sky trek for her age & Owen and I went to the older course. Ella also took full advantage of the Sky Gym. We spent a good four hours hanging out and playing. We had so much fun and it’s a great place to stretch your legs. It is also pet friendly which they can watch with a peer. 

Also to note, please be sure to wear closed toe shoes, I’d bring snacks & water. Located there is the Sky Course (adult & youth) Sky Gym (2 to 12) unlimited laps, Kid Sky Adventure (5 years up) & Adventure Tower with Sky Drop (5 years up).

4.Martha Creek & Revelstoke Dam

Located just down the road from Basecamp Resorts is the Revelstoke Dam which is such a cool sight to see driving by. The kids were just so astonished by the side of it and the amount of water behind the Dam. We also stopped off at the provincial park Martha Creek beach to let Macy run around and stretch her legs a little. She loved it. It’s a great picnic area too!

5.The Pipe Mountain Coaster

On our last full day we drove to Revelstoke Mountain Resort and couldn’t wait to ride the Pipe Coaster. Tickets located online or at Guest Services. The whole family gathered into the Revelstoke Gondola and made our way up the hill. It was such a beautiful day! Once up to the top, we had a wonderful employee go through how to ride & safety guidelines. Drew and Owen went alone while Ella and I went together. If a child is small enough to sit on your lap they can and you both get buckled in. The middle lever is your brake, slow down & speed. It’s 1.4km downhill and can go as fast as 42kmp. It’s almost like a nature rollercoaster, going through trees and tunnels. With incredible mountain views.

We love the atmosphere at Revelstoke Mountain Resort to. So friendly and so full of fun energy. Book your tickets online today.

6.Golden Skybridge

When we finished at the pipe coaster we headed to Golden to visit for the opening week of the Skybridge. It is the highest suspension bridge in Canada. Located in a perfect little wooded area. We took a small trail up to the highest suspension bridge and crossed. It was high. Below was a pretty waterfall and river and when you looked up surrounding it was this incredible mountain range view all around. 

Open Dates: June 4th – October 11th

Tickets: Adult $34 Kids $17 5 years and younger Free

On the other side of the bridge we walked another small trail that led us on another suspension bridge to cross once more to get back to the entrance. While hanging out there, you’ll find washrooms, food stands, picnic tables, water filling stations & the cutest tree park for the kids to play. The zip lines were a huge hit for our little ones!

7.Meadows in the Sky Parkway

Located on Revelstoke Mountain was the best drive. Winding road up this mountain with the Honda Touring was such a fun drive. It had viewpoints located all around, with waterfall trails and pit stops. It’s just an incredible drive we all loved and even spotted a black bear for just a second! We do recommend getting a Parks Canada pass for this location. Pack water, snacks & walking shoes!

Revelstoke will always hold a huge part in our hearts because we are adventurers and love the outdoors. It’s a small and quaint town but really packs a lot of things to do and holds a lot of beautiful places to just take in. If you get an opportunity to visit Revelstoke this Summer I hope this guide helps you!
