Backroads mapbooks usually are a good help. Most likely can be found at your local library. Also sites such as clubtread.com are a wealth of info on the subject. Good luck.

The beginning of page 14 of this post lists the system I use. Backroad Maps as North 54 says are a great resource either in paper or GPS version. If your in Kamloops sometime we could meet for coffee and I can show lots of roads south of Revelstoke.

Scuitto is a small, very productive Lake SE of Kamloops. The lake for years has allowed rough camping but in recent years it has got out of control to the determent of the poor rancher that leases the property. I went up fishing yesterday and was very surprised to find a new recreation site c/w rail fences, defined sites and an attempt @ a boat launch. (I used the old overland launch as the new one was a gravel bog.) I'm sure it will be better in time but Texas pea gravel and my boat don't go together well. I included a picture of the old camping system as well as the new rec site and boat launch as well as a route map to the site. The new rec site has 8 sites @ present and if it's full a few km down the road is Campbell Lake with 31 sites that is only full on long weekends.
