  • I have moved to this area, it is very peaceful, locals are very friendly and helpful. The lake has a speed limit of 10km, so with not speed boats etc, the kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding is great ...  more »
  • Lac Le Jeune is one of the greatest provincial campsite in BC. The lake is pristine, and I would be surprised if you didn't see a moose.

  • This is a close by swimming lake for Kamloops with a provincial campground. 1/3 the sites are embedded into the trees to offer privacy / shelter from the wind. Unfortunately the other 2/3 are generally exposed to wind , vision and SUN! The park is kept clean for the few times I have been, offers free fishing for kids sometimes, has a nice sandy little beach. Caution - there are leeches here
  • We've never spent the night, coming from Kamloops it just feels to close by. But it's a great lake to spend the day, go canoeing and explore.
