    Default Illecillewaet Campground

    Illecillewaet Campground in Rogers Pass. Camping at the moment. This place is really nice. Smaller sites so not great for any trailer over 20ft. Easy access to backcountry hikes, flush toilettes, free firewood, cook huts, Glacier views from all around the campsite. First time I have been here in the summer. I have camped at the Illecillewaet trailhead in the winter many times. A good spot to access backcountry skiing.

    What are the fees like?
    From their page it looks like adult entry (daily?) $8.80, Camping per night $21.50, Firewood permit (daily) $8.80

    Blanket Creek Provincial Park was $25 per night, $7 firewood when there isn't a fireban on..

    ya it worked out to $31/night with fire permit, and all the wood you can burn. It seemed like most that stopped in there were on their way through.

    I have a yearly parks pass so I did not really think about the parking. I guess that would be an extra.
