British Columbia – Hunkering Down At Norbury Lake

British Columbia – Hunkering Down At Norbury Lake

As we continued our travels through Canada, we had a few days before our reservations started at Banff National Park. We had overstayed our welcome at Fernie Mountain Resort and had to move on. While we survived the big Fernie burn, I was in recovery mode and not good for much. On the recommendations of friends and fellow Canadians, we didn’t make any reservations. A large amount of first-come, first-serve parks would make it easy to find a place to stay. So with that so-called ‘sound advice’, we set off to Norbury Lake Park.

We finally crossed over into Canada for our first stop in Fernie, British Columbia.

We chose to stay up at the Fernie Mountain Resort, dry camping in their parking lot. For a small fee they have parking spaces that you can enjoy for 3 days. We found the parking lot fairly level with amazing views. The mountain offers a small store, a bar and tons of amazing downhill mountain biking.
