Purcell Wilderness

Wilderness is at the mouth of Fry Creek, which drains down from the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Provincial Park. The Camp literally backs on to a vast wilderness area. Access can be difficult, however, even on foot.


From the BC Parks website: The Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Park embraces six large drainages flowing east to the Columbia River system and three flowing west to Kootenay Lake. All of which emanate from the rugged and glaciated backbone of the spectacular Purcell Mountain Range of southeastern BC. It is a challenging, undeveloped nearly pristine mountain landscape encompassing five biogeoclimatic zones and the only intact ecosystem in southeastern BC.
