Size: 260 Square km.

Mountaineering and Rock Climbing: Scrambles in the rugged Columbia Mountains and an interesting rock face in the form or the Lauretta Slabs await you.

Camping: The park has backcountry camping only. The campgrounds are located at Eva and Jade Lakes. If you are looking for front country sites check out Revelstokes sister park, Glacier or head over to one of the nearby Provincial Park campgrounds. There are private campgrounds available in or around the city or Revelstoke.

Backpacking: Random camping is permitted when you are beyond five kilometres from pavement, with the exception of Millar Lake. Campers at Eva and Jade Lakes must use the tent pads provided.

Hiking: Mount Revelstoke has 10 trails ranging from short, valley-bottom strolls, to steep, tough climbs.

Backcountry and Cross Country Skiing: The trails in the park are neither groomed nor packed. Deep heavy snow is normal. Light, cross-country ski equipment is not suitable for these conditions. Heavier, ski touring or ski mountaineering equipment and techniques are more practical. The Meadows in the Sky Parkway may have track which can be used by cross country enthusiasts, weather permitting but the park is at its best as a backcountry destination. Caribou Cabin is available to skiers in the winter.

Snowshoeing: The park is open for snowshoe enthusiasts but a good knowlege of backcountry travel and avalanche safety is required in most of the area.

Nature: Mount Revelstoke has an old-growth forest with 800 year old cedar trees with a boardwalk running through the grove. Some of the animals you might have a chance to see in the park are: grizzly bear, mountain goat, white-tailed ptarmigan, hoary marmot, golden-mantled ground squirrel, mountain caribou and pika, pine marten, coyote, wolverine, lynx, mule deer, snowshoe hare, Columbian ground squirrel, red squirrel, porcupine, gray jay, Clark's nutcracker, and pine siskin.
