You can find the entrance to the park easily whether driving West from Christina Lake or East from Grand Forks on Highway #3. Once you find our sign, follow the arrow and turn onto River Road. Cascade Cove is a short drive down the hill away from the noise of the highway.
Welcome to Cascade Cove
As you drive in from the highway you'll be greeted with a welcome banner.
Cascde Cove Park and Campground Entrance
Turning off the Crowsnest Highway #3, you drive down the hill toward the Kettle River and enter our beautiful park. This view is from the office door.
Campground Play Area for Children
Cascade Cove offers a spacious play area for children. Often, parents can reserve a site close-by so as to watch their child from the comfort of their lounge chair.
Washrooms at CAscade Cove RV Park
The men and women's washrooms include coin operated showers where a loonie will get you 8 minutes of hot water. These areas of the park are cleaned twice daily.
Stairs to the Beach
The small beach at Cascade Cove is accessed by stairs from the campground
Tenting on the Kettle River
We have some prime tenting sites overlooking the Kettle and our little cove. These sites have water and power available and are quite spacious. THe stairs to the sandy beach are closeby.
Cascade Cove Beach
During the hot weather of July, August and September our beach on the Kettle River is a favorite place to hang out.
The access to the cove and beach is private for the guests of Cascade Cove RV Park and Campground. The bridge in the background is Highway 395 to Laurier in the USA which is about 5 minutes down the road. Just on the other side is the Christina Lake Golf Club.
Swimming at Cascade Cove
The cove is safe for children with a sandy bottom. The float is great for somewhere to swim to and dive off.
A view of our cove looking down river. Grab a tube and float around the corner past the golf course and get out at a great beach under the Kettle Valley Rail trestle (the Trans-Canada Trail). Stairs lead up to the top.

Trans Canada Trail
The old Kettle Valley Railroad Trestle over the Kettle River offers a great view and a very nice beach accessed by wooden stairs. Tubers from Cascade Cove can get out at the beach and be picked up from the golf course access point close-by.
Trans Canada Trail
Just a short walk from Cascade Cove on the Trans Canada Trail is another trestle near the entrance to the Cascade Gorge. From the other side, one can descend to a large sandy beach on the Kettle River. People tubing on the river must get out at this spot or else risk entering the falls through which no one has survived.

The famous Cascade Gorge is just a short walk from Cascade Cove RV Park and Campground.
IT is possible to climb down into the gorge although quite steep. Bring a rope!
