Bear Creek Aspen Trailhead & Campground - Directions from Kelowna

Bear Creek Aspen Campground - Camping


These videos are a couple of years old, but will give you an idea of the Bear Creek Trail System and the atmosphere of our riding area. We have since completed the Aspen Flats Trailhead, developed over 20 campsites with many suitable for any size motorhome or trailer, and doubled our signed and mapped trail system. The video mentions 120 kms of trails, but the number is now over 300 kms. It's an amazing riding area!



Thanks to Dave Norona for the incredible job on putting these together !
