  • I frequent this park for camping and day trips in the summer. It's close to home, has washroom facilities and picnic tables in the day use area. Great for families. Small lake with NO large power boat...  more »
  • What a great spot to take the kids. Swimming and great beach and picnic area also fishing off the very long dock I will definitely take the family there again  more »
  • Good hiking/walking around the lake. Trail was washed out so had to turn back, would have been nice if there was notification at the beginning of the trail.  more »

  • 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.
