  • 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. 
  • Great place to escape and spend the day kayaking, canoeing, fishing, Boats, paddles etc can be hired from Lac Le Joune Resort. Alternatively sit and watch the birds, beavers, otters and stars from the...  more »
  • Landscaped campground with a view of the Lake. For the most beautiful place to the more you must book, but plenty of beautiful places.

  • 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.
