Things to do around Creston, BC.

While we stayed a few days in Erickson, we took the opportunity to explore Creston and its area. Here is a list of things we enjoyed doing:

  • A day at Kootenay Lake

It took us a while to find a spot not invaded by mosquitoes... but once we did, the boys were able to enjoy a quick dip into the lake -the water was really cold!

By now you all know that if there is something with a train involved, we have to go. The Creston Museum has a Model Railway Exhibit. Unfortunately, the exhibit was closed because of Covid... but luckily, we were able to enter the room since we were the only one there. Ssssh. I have no picture of the model because I didn't want to abuse our luck but I can assure you Elijah was very happy to see it!

Right across from the museum is this little gem of a Fish & Chips. I'm no fan of fish but I do enjoy a good fish & chips. And this charming little place was perfect!

  • A day at the river (around the bridge on Canyon-Lister Rd)

For Adrien, it was the best day ever!

  • Mt Thompson

We didn't do the hike because it seemed challenging with the kids, but the view we got from driving halfway to the top was beautiful enough! A bit of warning though, the forestry road is very bumpy and you need the appropriate truck to go all the way up!!
