Sasquatch Provincial Park, Harrison Hot Springs

Sasquatch Provincial Park is a provincial park in Kent, British Columbia, Canada.
The park was established 1968, in its present condition. It actually began in 1959 as a 20 hectare inland fjord called Green Point Park, which was expanded into a picnicking area in 1960. Eight years later the park was expanded greatly and renamed. It was named after Sasquatch (a Halkomelem Salish word), the cryptid said to be endemic to the area.
The park is 1217 hectares in size. It is characterized by a series of pocket lakes, a unique second-growth and birch forest, and scenic mountain ridges.
The park is located in the District of Kent, 6 kilometres north of Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia.

  • A great provincial park along side an amazing glacial lake, Harrison Lake. We were pleasantly surprised to find many/mostly very large old growth Cedars, same as you would find along the Trans-Canada Hwy 1 at the Giant Cedars Boardwalk Trail. If you're in the area, this is a great spot to have lunch at one of the many picnic tables, take a swim, or walk along the beach.
  • Well maintained park, basic amenities on campgrounds (no flush toilets, no showers), there is a very nice Hicks lake, perfect for swimming and fishing. It can be very busy in summer, so it is advisable to reserve a camping spot. All the spots are large and well shaded. Tap water is not drinkable,so bring bottled water.
  • Beautiful views of the lakes and mountains. Both Hicks lake and Deer lake are nice to paddle on, with walking trails nearby. The campgrounds are nice and tend to be quiet. I would like to see a few more hiking trails, but Sasquatch showcases the beauty of British Columbia.
  • Great family-friendly lake. Warmer than most lakes in the area and has lots of beach front. The shoreline is made up of shallow coves that are great for swimming. A 10 horsepower limit makes the lake great for kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding or just floating around. Crafts are available to rent if you don't have your own. Get there before 10 on weekends if you want a spot right on the beach. There are small grassy fields with picnic tables above the main day use area that quickly fill up, as well.
  • Camped at Hicks lake in Sasquatch park. The campsite was beautiful and the lake was wonderful for swimming, but one of the park rangers was was grumpy and seemed to look for “issues.” The other rangers were friendly and reasonable. Be aware that the water available at the campsite was not potable, requiring boiling. The park website says they are renovating the water system.
