Stay Awhile ... Mountain Style

Welcome to Kootenay Park Lodge – whether you are just passing through or have time to spend a few days exploring the area, we have something great to offer.

Rustic, cozy log cabins with fireplaces, acclaimed dining and unique gifts, fresh sandwiches and coffee in our General Store provide day and overnight visitors with the services they need to fully experience the beauty of Kootenay National Park. We are located in the centre of the park, along Highway 93 South, at Vermilion Crossing and are the only development for many miles (or kilometers). Banff, Lake Louise and Radium Hot Springs are all an easy 45 minute drive from the Lodge. Several world class hiking trails and great fishing spots are close by.

Simple. Authentic. Elegant. Affordable. You’ll feel that you have stepped back in time walking among our historic buildings and experiencing our friendly service. We don’t have cell phone service or television/cable reception but we do have beautiful scenery and loads of wildlife.

If you would like to make a reservation or check availability, click on the "Check Availability / Book Now" button to the right on this page or on the Rates/Seasons page. For more information or if you have a specific question, you can always send us an email (see link below).

Avoid the crowds and stay awhile, mountain style. We look forward to seeing you soon.

A homey, old-fashioned place. Nobody's in a hurry, nobody is pretentious. A perfect place to read, hike, and enjoy your cabin's fireplace. Reasonably priced for a popular tourist area.
