- National Park
A natural paradise full of unspoiled wilderness, countryside beauty, and outdoor recreation awaits guests at this glamping site, located on an 80+ acre retreat near Madeira Park, British Columbia. Situated between the shores of Ruby Lake to the west and the Caren Range Mountains to the east, it is surrounded by old-growth forest—ancient yellow cedars, mountain hemlocks, and silver firs blanketing the landscape with their magnificently thick and verdant foliage.
Without even leaving the site, guests will find a treasure trove of attractions, amenities, and facilities all around them. Walking, hiking, and cycling trails wind their way through the woods. Canoes, rowboats, and stand-up paddle boards are available for rentals on the lake. A lagoon and a wildlife sanctuary beckon to be explored. There is even an Italian restaurant that awaits hungry guests with a patio for them to dine on in the warmer months, and a wood-burning fireplace for them to warm up at during cooler weather.
Beyond the site, the bounty of attractions becomes even greater, with Spipiyus Provincial Park to the southeast, Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park to the northeast, and the nearby towns of Madeira Park, Egmont, Garden Bay, and more presenting an array of shops and restaurants. There are also many day trip opportunities, such as the Thormanmby Island, Savary Island, and Princess Louisa Inlet.
The site is about two hours and 30 minutes from Vancouver (where the closest international airport is located) and six hours from Seattle, including ferry transport, which comprises part of the journey from both locations. Read More
