Nemo Creek in the Valhalla Provincial Park

Nemo Creek is one of the more popular beaches on the Valhalla Provincial Park side of the Slocan Lake. 20-30 minutes from New Denver by power boat or almost an 1 hour from Silverton by Canoe. The beach is right at the mouth of the creek and is sandy and that water shallow so it gets warmer than many spots. There is a short 5 minute walk up the creek to a small 5m waterfall or a half hour walk along the loop trail which travels through the forest before traversing into a small canyon and a narrow 10 meter waterfall and a descent along the edge of the canyon. There is 3 or 4 campsites with an outhouse and bear proof food storage lockers.
