Report Check-In

This is the secret road from Marysville(south Kimberley) to Crawford Bay ferry. There are NO services. Travel only from June to early October. Grass/dirt/gravel road...lots of cutbacks...pretty smooth sailing in a ToyotaFJ though. The site is amazing and safe for camping but its raw forest with spaces sawed out by BC Forestry Dept. Have seen small compact rental cars travelling it following their GPS LOL as it sometimes gives the signal that its the shortest route. We drove it in 1 hour 40 minutes but we were really giving it. Cuts over 120km off the 'long-way' around from the normal highway if yer going to Nelson. If you are coming from Marysville, it spits you out close to Kootenay/Crawford Bay on the #3A highway in and around 3 hotels, convenience stores, campgrounds, ferry etc. REMEMBER: All inland BC lake ferries are 100% FREE! During the other months, don't even attempt to drive it as the snow can make it impossible to turn around. You could tow a 15ft lighter trailer during the summer. Many black-berry bushes, and many bears to be seen. Lots of local musicians/dj's use this route to shoot to Nelson. Totally recommend it. As fun and safe as it gets cutting through mountain peaks. Watch out when wild-fire season starts, Google BC WIldfires web page. Been very smokey, hot, dry, and road closures in effect when burn is on. Ask oncoming traffic(if you do see anyone at all) if there are any fallen trees blocking road.
