Big questions were raised around budgeting for major upgrades to Williamson’s Lake park & campground after a final site plan was presented to the City of Revelstoke’s parks committee last week, the Revelstoke Review reported.

The $1.4 million plan calls for replacing existing buildings, improving accessibility to the beach, renovating the dock, moving the mini-golf course and removing all campsites from the beach area.

It moves all the campsites off the beach, and up the hill. It would include a mix of full-service RV sites, vehicle access sites, and walk-in sites. There would be 45 sites in total — down from the current 48.

The plan emerged out of an open house held in November where three options were presented. One was park focused, one campground focused, and the third a mix between the two.

According to the report by, the majority of people who attended the open house expressed a preference for the first and third options, with no one preferring a campground-focused site plan.
