Great golf and a comfortable RV park await those who want to get away from it all. Located about 100 miles north of Kamloops in central British Columbia, Wells Gray Golf Course & RV Park features a challenging 9 hole course surrounded by some of Mother Nature’s best topography. The par 72 course measures 6,030 yards with water coming into play on several holes. The course is very walkable, and you’ll want to enjoy the scenery along the way. Wells Gray Golf Course offers cart and golf club rentals, along with a cozy snack bar.
The resort is located at the entrance to Wells Gray Provincial Park, which was established in 1939 and is British Columbia’s fourth largest provincial park. The RV park borders along beautiful Hemp Creek, and features 30 full-service sites with 30 amp power and water. A dump station is available as well as Internet service. Each site has a private fire pit but there is also a large common fire pit to accommodate bigger groups. Wood is readily available.
One of the real treasures of Wells Gray Resort is the private Mineral Springs Lake, available exclusively to resort guests. Opened in 2011, it features a hot pool for soaking and relaxing your muscles after a long day of golfing, hiking, or travelling. Other than just being incredibly relaxing, mineral springs are often recommended for those recuperating from surgery or illness. Many visit a mineral spring to treat skin inflammations such as eczema and psoriasis, as well as reduce stiffness and inflammation in joints due to osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In addition to the potential health benefits, soaking in a warm mineral spring pool just feels great!
In addition to the golf course and comfortable RV park, Wells Gray Resort also offers lots of outdoor activities in both summer and winter. Here is just a partial list of activities available in the area:
Go horseback riding
Charter air flights with Wells Gray Air
Take a lake tour with Clearwater Lake Tours
Experience river rafting
Take a hike on one of the many trails; guides are available
