Based on numerous visit to the area, including on July 15, 2013, September 29, 2014, September 13, 2015 and September 4, 2016.

A great basecamp to explore the western parts of David Thompson Country with lots of hiking trails nearby.

The Two O’Clock Creek Campground is one of our favourite. The campground is relatively small and every site offer a great view of the surrounding mountains.

Relaxing at camp

Almost every site at this campground offers great views of the mountains and privacy at the same time. Some sites are smaller, mostly facing the meadow at the centre of the campground with larger sites on the outside. There are a few secluded walk-in tenting site but unfortunately they are located the closest to the highway.

Every site includes a gravel pad, picnic table and fire pit. There are two dry toilets and while there is a water pump the water is not potable. Firewood is included in the campsite fees and is available from the campground host.

Unfortunately there is no longer a picnic shelter at this campground. Like most of the other campgrounds in the area, the ones here were taken down a few years ago leaving few options on a rainy day.
