RV use is only allowed in conjunction with residential use; this is not an RV park. Guest cottages are not allowed, but guest suites with separate entrances are allowed.

    The land slopes gradually from the road down to the lake. A building site has been cleared and the ground scrapped and ready to build a cabin/home. There are beautiful mountain views in all directions and views of the lake are possible especially from a second-floor rear balcony. A driveway was cut off the road to the building site and services are at the lot line and all under-ground so no power lines getting in the way of your views.

    A number of the lots at Galena Shores now have cabins and or homes on them with most owners using their property recreationally while a few have taken up year-round residences.

    Some owners are using the land by RV while they plan and prepare to build but using it as a long-term RV site is not allowed.

    Area Data

    Galena Shores is located in the Selkirk Mountains on the shores of beautiful Galena Bay on Upper Arrow Lake. The region is famous for high alpine peaks, amazingly hot and dry summers and lots of snow in winter. There are numerous natural attractions such as back country lakes, pristine creeks and rivers and hot springs—some as close as 15 minutes away. Everything from full-service resorts to more natural backcountry pools are accessible by a short hike. Galena Bay itself is a small community of mainly recreational dwellings with more and more full-time residents posting up. The nearby communities of Beaton (15 minutes) and Trout Lake (20 minutes) also have small populations of less than 50 year-round residents combined. This is an area to appreciate nature, wildlife and outdoor recreation. Revelstoke and Nakusp are the closest towns—Nakusp is 35 minutes away, Revelstoke a little further.


    Slightly more accessible than Revelstoke is the community of Nakusp, only 56 km away and not requiring a ferry for access. Nakusp has a population of 1,600 and offers all your basic amenities. The town has a 3,000 ft paved runway, great schools, quaint shops and services and a small but vibrant arts community. Nakusp also fronts on Upper Arrow Lake and has a great marina facility and attractive waterfront.


    Revelstoke is a real mountain town located 65 km north of Galena Bay and connected to the same water body as Galena Shores. Coming from Alberta one turns off the Trans-Canada Highway at Revelstoke and then drives south on Highway 23 to the ferry. Revelstoke’s economy is based around tourism, forestry and the rail. The largest growth sector of late is tourism as more and more visitors come for outdoor adventures year-round. Revelstoke Mountain resort has the highest vertical drop in North America and some of the deepest and most consistent snow conditions on earth. With a population of 8,000+, the town offers all the amenities one requires with two grocery stores, lots of shops, restaurants and cafes, all your professional services, spas, a great hospital with emergency service, two new schools and a picturesque and vibrant western style town core.

    Upper Arrow Lake

    Upper Arrow Lake is part of the Arrow Lakes which are essentially two widening’s of the Columbia River made larger by the creation of the BC Hydro Reservoir after the construction of the Keenleyside Dam. Upper Arrow Lake extends over 100 km from above Revelstoke southward past Nakusp to the narrows near Arrow Park—Galena Bay is close to half-way and located at the widest point of the Arrow Lakes. The water in Galena Bay is much calmer than the main lake. Lower Arrow Lake extends further south to the city of Castlegar.


    In summer the boating on Arrow Lake is fabulous, there are lots of interesting excursions—up the long and fjord like Beaton Arm which extends more than 12 km off the main lake body, kayak along the sandy shores of Galena Bay, visit historical sites such as the ghost town of Arrowhead, or just zip around the bay in a small aluminum boat, comb the shores for driftwood or just relax and enjoy the mountain views.

    Fishing is top notch on Arrow Lakes year-round, but best in the fall/winter months with large rainbows 9-15 lbs. a common catch, Dollies and bull trout are also prevalent, while the smaller kokanee salmon are good eating.

    Extending immediately out of the private roads of Galena Shores are great quading and dirt biking roads. For those who want to get into the backcountry even further there are FSR roads that take you up into secluded mountain valleys.

    Or for those who are looking for a scenic drive the drive south to Meadow Creek and Kaslo along Trout Lake and the Lardeau River is one of the best in BC. In late April/May the Gerhard rainbow are spawning at the end of Trout Lake (approx. 1 hour away) and these are the largest trout in the world—a must see! Other summer activities include wildlife watching, hiking, great mountain bike trails or just kick back and enjoy the stunning mountain and lake scenery.

    In winter you have some BC’s best snowmobiling nearby, world class heli-skiing and a few back country adventure lodges are present in the area. Revelstoke Mountain Resort is approx. 1 hour away and offers amazing powder riding. Some of the best fishing of the year is during the winter months as the lake remains open water year-round. And what better way to spend a snowy winter day than in a hot spring only minutes away.
