Located on the southwest end of the Windermere Lake, James Chabot Provincial Park acquired its name from the MLA for Columbia-Revelstoke (1963-1986) James Chabot. Nestled between the towering peaks of the Purcell and Rocky Mountains, this enchanting day-use park attracts tourists for its shallow and clean beach. The broad sandy beach is contrasted by the open grassy play area. Sitting by the lakeside, fishing or taking a stroll through the water and dipping your feet in it will give you a soothing experience. If you are an adrenaline junkie then there are opportunities for windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and so on. The adventure playground also has a Volleyball Court. The picnic areas are equipped with 40 picnic tables, stretched sandy beach and parking stalls. Take a hike and enjoy the wildlife.

  • Very nice park with great access to the beach. A little more chill than the nearby Kinsman park. There was a great playground for our son and the beach was nice and sandy. There's a really nice area of grass that's very close to the beach and i was able to park my blanket under a nice tree where i watched my boy enjoy the sun, sand, and water

  • Not as busy as Kinsmen beach because the beach is mostly rocks and the swimming area is shallow. It does have a great park though and a change room and parking usually isn't an issue. Great place for a picnic, but if you want to swim Kinsmen is a better option.

  • Nice beach with good sand but the water so bad that you can't eat the fish out of the lake and it's so busy you can barely find a place to lay your towel. it's a good place to hang out and see the views in the off seasons during the winter it's much quieter and the lake area is much more taken care of

  • Great place to cool off in record hot weather. Good access lots of parking. Excellent facilities as well.

  • It looks very nice, big and clean surroundings. Would be nice to spend more days here and do some kayaking or paddle boarding. Too bad the vacations are always limited.
