Big Sheep Ck
Number of Sites: 1
The Big Sheep Creek Recreation Site is hidden in a valley of the Rossland Range. The drive over Record Ridge and down into the Big Sheep Creek valley is one of the most scenic in the area. One wonders if Dewdney thought of this as he struggled over these same mountains, searching for a route to the gold fields in the east Kootenays. The recreation site, on the banks of Big Sheep Creek, will accommodate one vehicle. A good fishing hole is just 10 steps from the picnic table. Bring your waders and fishing gear and find your own spot where the "big ones" are. Beyond the recreation site, the road becomes very rough, suitable only for 4 wheel drive vehicles and hikers.
Tent Sites Available
From the junction of Highway 3B and 22, at the Le Roi Mine Museum in Rossland, travel 0.4 km south on Highway 22. Turn right onto the "Old Cascade Highway", across from the Rossland Motel. Follow this good 2 wheel drive gravel road up over Record Ridge and down into the Big Sheep Creek Valley. Just past the 22 km marker, turn right onto a good 2 wheel drive dirt road up Big Sheep Creek.
