detailed travel directions for the last 48kms From St. Yves to
Seymour Arm, the road becomes a forestry gravel road for approx.
45 kms to the village of Seymour Arm. Here are some indicators:
If you set your odometer to 0 in St. Yves, where the
gravel road starts:
at 32KM, you will see the old sawmill on the left just past yellow marker 31, turn right
(red arrow). At 41.1KM, turn right again (yellow marker 41) to
cross 2nd bridge (narrow lane), after the bridge on the left you will see a faded
tree carving of the "Seymour River Guest Ranch". Go straight
until at 43KM (open fields on the left, farm) you reach an important
crossing (Seymour Arm Bay Rd) turn left (Sunny Waters Cabins Sign).
From here it is another 5.5KM to our cabins. (If you went
straight here, you would arrive at the village of Seymour Arm,
where you will find Daniels Store, the boat launching ramp, the Waterfront
Pub). At 45KM turn right, go straight until at 47KM you reach another
important turnoff, turn right (Sunny Waters Cabins/Cafe Sign just prior to the intersection), you are almost
there. Please drive slowly, in about 1.5KM you will see the "Welcome to Sunny Waters" sign.
If you decide to arrive by boat there are several marinas where
you can launch your boat and leave your vehicle in Sicamous,
Scotch Creek or Anglemont. We recommend that you contact the
marinas beforehand to ensure parking is available and to find out their
parking, storage, launching rates, etc.
We do not have a boat
launch at Sunny Waters. If you drive in with your boat and
trailer, you can launch at the
dock next to the Pub in Seymour Arm. There is a
large dock and one buoy for moorage at the cabins.
(Perry River Road). This is an
active forestry road, caution and vehicle clearance, i.e. SUV, is critical.
From Revelstoke through Three Valley Gap, approximately 23 km
past Three Valley Gap on the right side is Bearsdale Castle
Miniature Land and an Esso gas station. Go approximately
300 m further and turn right and follow road ( approx.. 85kms)
into Seymour Arm. Ignore the ‘no thru’ road sign. Once in
Seymour Arm follow the red arrow, drive around the lake to the
east side where we are located.
We highly recommend that you check with the Esso Station at
Perry River Bridge and they will let you know the current
condition of the road. Please keep in mind there is no signage
until you reach Seymour Arm.
