  • Banff and Jasper in the camping and drove down, not cold at night than the above two. Banff and Jasper is also a master at dawn of June 5 degrees Celsius temperatures at once they sprang up, here it is not very cold. And right next to the Lake, the mountains, so gracious.

  • late in the year, it was very quiet but there was an algae bloom that made the lake smelly. It was warm enough to swim but we heard rumours of lake itch so didn't  more »
  • This is a beautiful park located on the shores of Harrison Lake. Lots of areas to picnic and lots of parking. There are also areas to walk/hike if desired.  more »

  • Great spot to camp for a couple nights. It was kind of damp and misty but the tree canopy kept us dry. Nice walk down to the lake through a marshy area with boardwalk.
  • Lovely park with lots of trails for varying fitness levels. Great for the dogs too
  • So beautiful here. I go here to come to Hicks Lake. Superb swimming. Clean water and safe environment. Not a lot of people know about this place so while other Lakes are packed with people, this one remains tolerable with the amount of people
  • This used to be a great place for a day out. However they have taken away many trees and are trying to redone for a housing unit or resort. Another treasure disappears to our governments friends
  • I feel fortunate to be able to experience the inevitable the cycle of life! November! The salmons come to the shore to die! Hundreds of them! The water in the lake is so clear! I can see the salmons swimming and struggling at the end of their life. The park is lovely and clean. Hardly anyone around now that it is only couple of weeks away from official winter. Still nice and peaceful to come here.
