  • After driving 6km on a dirt road with a lot of holes( one star off)we stayed a night at lake side campground. Our site was spacious for our camper van, enough space between neighbors for enough privac...  more »
  • Very good camp sites at or near one of 2 lakes. Many hiking trails. Canoe rentals - must do! We have visited and camped there for many years.  more »
  • The picnic area along Harrison Lake -- reached via a paved road -- was lovely and absolutely deserted when I visited in early April. I also wanted to visit the upper lakes, but the unpaved access road...  more »

  • Wow this camp ground is amazing. My family was at lake side and we had a great time. We really enjoyed the scenery and the deer lake located just steps from the campsite. The park is well maintained and the staff are very friendly. What we thought were great was they sell fire wood from the service truck as the park ranger drives around. I wish more campsite would offer this service..we would definitely come again..
  • Enjoyed camping here. The pads were quite small and close to each other, we got a double with two other families, and it was barely bigger than some of the singles were have stayed on. The lake is nice (but watch that swimmer's itch) and there was a good playground. Pit toilets, not more or less clean than you'd expect. Harrison nearby has a few stores for amenities, and a very nice beach.
  • Park is great if you have kids, being here as adults who wants peace and quiet for a few days, not so much... screaming kids all day long and even after 11pm when it’s supposed to be quiet time. Definitely don’t do Hicks lake if you’re not a family.
  • It is a good place for family and friends. Though on Saturday July 28 & Sunday July 29 there was a lot of loud voices and laughter, and screaming at 11pm-1:30am which there was no regulation or parks person to stop it. Or the drunk drivers that came in to use the outhouse, then leave. Then some came up to us on Tuesday night @ 10:20pm to tell us to turn down our Disney songs (we had children with us 6 of them) I found that ridiculous.... Other than that, it was a peaceful time there.
  • The park and lake are beautiful, however, the woman "in charge" was turning car after car away saying there was no parking and that the day area was closed. Within 5-10 minutes, she drove off. Upon inspection, there were over 25 empty spots in the day use parking lot and the other lot where the boat launch and over flow parking are, had all of 4 vehicles in it. Spending 3 hours of prep and driving for a family afternoon at the lake was ruined as our other carload of family turned back and started for home (a seven month along pregnant woman and two kids had already been stuck in a vehicle for well over an hour). The aforementioned woman was not only rude in verbal and physical manners, but she refused to give her name or that of a supervisor. As a local, I found this appalling. I can only imagine what image tourists (who bring in a lot of money to our province) walk away with. For all we promote our beautiful country and our kind people, having someone like that represent BC is ridiculous.
