The location of the campground in Rosebery BC has been in the Lyver family since the 1960’s. A hardworking logger by the name of John Lyver arrived in Rosebery, BC in 1963 and began to grow his small business by operating “Kermit”, the affectionately nicknamed and painted green, front-end loader. Eventually John purchased a logging truck, and then two, and soon began to purchase several lots in the Rosebery area. It is through this hard work and determination that allows us to offer the Wilson Creek Retreat private campground.
The owners of this campground, Krista (Brennan) and Ron Lyver, offer this scenic retreat as a safe haven and family getaway for those who serve our country and our communities as first responders, emergency services and in the armed forces. It is their hope that currently serving and retired members and their families and friends, may enjoy this region of the rugged Kootenay Mountains with peace of mind.
The owners represent two families whom include former serving members of the Air Force, Army, RCMP and Municipal Police Service. Family members have seen service in Germany, Cyprus, Afghanistan and at bases and detachments all across Canada. Krista grew up in a military family and wears the title “base brat” with pride, having lived across Canada and overseas. She served in the CAF Army Reserves and worked in law enforcement for 11 years. Ron recently completed 30 years service, having served in both the PPCLI and the RCMP, the majority of his service as a member of RCMP ERT.
Wilson Creek Retreat is proud to offer this fully powered, 5 stall space to our veterans and currently serving members of those in uniform and their families and friends, so they may enjoy some much needed and deserved, rest and relaxation.
