The Royal is a friendly little joint and they often have live bands playing. The food is very good here - I'd highly recommend the chicken burger, it's the best I've ever had.
They have the full selection of beers from the Nelson Brewing Co on tap. Just ask, and they'll let you sample them.
Dress Code: I think pretty much anything goes at this place!

The above is actually a trademark from Shaftebury, a small brewery in Vancouver. But it applies everywhere. When travelling, please don't just pound back the same Anheuser-Busch, Molson, Heineken... products. Since the 1970s, the brewing industry in North America has openned up. You needn't settle for mega-market swill brewed in Edmonton, Toronto, Milwaukee or St. Louis and shipped thousands of miles. And a hint to Americans, a draft pint (573 mL) of a locally-brewed beer will generally cost you less than a bottle (355 mL) of Bud Lite.
In Nelson, the Nelson Brewing Company brews a truly excellent Wild Honey Ale. Most bars and restaurants in the West Kootenays have it on tap.

The lush forests that line BC's highways harbour a lot of game. Unfortunately, animals need to cross those highways. Around dusk driving can become downright treacherous. As anyone who has hit a deer and lived to tell the tale (and many do not) will tell you, it's a truly sad scene. A once-majestic animal dead or dying at the side of the road, your vehicle mangled and your passengers injured -- or much worse. Be careful. Hit an elk at 100 km/h and , suffice to say, your trip is ruined.
This is a problem all across Canada, but Highways 3A and 6 into Nelson are particularly bad. One trip, I counted ten deer eating grass in the ditch beside Highway 6. One dog, cougar, wolf or coyote decides to try for a meal, and you are in big trouble.

Favorite thing: We camped here for a couple nights. It was GREAT. It is close to Nelson and has a nice beach.
We have never been here before but thought we would try it out. We will be back for longer next time. There is the beach, ferry ride, fishing, hiking, boating, gold panning,hot springs all with in the vacinity.
Fondest memory: Nice and relaxed time.....
