Blanket Creek Provincial park is located within a twenty minute drive south of Revelstoke. It is a great family campground. It boasts a warm man-made swimming lagoon, adventure playground and historic homestead site. Though it is not well know for hiking possibilities it does have a few options for short hikes. The first is a very short walk into Sutherland Falls. The second trail starts from the south end of the campground is 2 km in length and considered an easy hike. The start of the trail will lead you through an old cedar forest with huge stumps displaying spring-board notches from early logging activity. It then takes you through dense forest and opens up to a very pretty, fjord looking inlet with deep clean water. The final section of the trail heads to the old homestead. This site still contains a deep rock lined pond and elaborate rock work fences.
