Where Your Adventure Begins

Where you stay, isn’t just about where you rest your head. In Blue River, it’s where your adventure begins. Whether you’re resting up on your journey along the Yellowhead Highway, or making Blue River your staging ground for mountainside adventures – you’re going to need a comfortable place to stay!

Pitch your tent in the wilderness, backcountry camping at Murtle Lake. Park your RV at the Blue River Campground and begin unwinding after a day on the road.

Ride your sled straight to the door, and make new friends at the Holy Smoke Inn B&B in Blue River or the Log Inn Pub Cabins in Avola. Revel in the seclusion of Bone Creek Wilderness Retreat’s rustic cabins or indulge in luxurious comfort at Mike Wiegele’s log cabins near the shores of Eleanor Lake.

Put in for a night at the Glacier Mountain Lodge, the Sandman Inn or the Blue River Motel. Then, get plenty of rest. Adventures are waiting right outside your door.
