Alouette Lake, Maple Ridge

4.8
Alouette Lake, originally Lillooet Lake and not to be confused with the lake of that name farther north, is a lake and reservoir in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada. It is located at the southeast foot of the mountain group known as the Golden Ears and is about 16 km in length on a northeast-southwest axis. It and the Alouette River, formerly the Lillooet River, were renamed in 1914 to avoid confusion with the larger river and lake farther north, with "Alouette", the French word for "lark", being chosen as being melodious and reminiscent of the original name in tone.Most of the basin of Alouette Lake has never been logged and its north flank is protected as part of Golden Ears Provincial Park (formerly part of Garibaldi Provincial Park until that park's division). A small portion of the lake and its largely inaccessible northwestern shore, near its narrows, are actually part of the District of Mission due to the rectangular shape of that district's boundary. North of the portion of the lake that is in Mission, the rest of its northern end is not in either municipality.

  • The Lake is located in Golden Ears Provincial Park, access is easy. On site there is a good framework for picnic. The view of the Lake and the mountains is very beautiful. Great for stand up paddle or kayak.

  • Is an absolutely stunning lake and easy to get to. Beautiful in the summer, but in every season. Is a shame that it is very unaccommodating for dogs though!! Would be 5 star except for that. As Bob Ba...  more »

  • It's good. Good for taking out your boat or skidoo in the quite. Not a lot of people go. Do have camp ground best by so you can definitely stay the night too. I've seen better sceneries but by no means this doesn't look good.
  • Good family picnic spot. Highly recommended
  • What a wonderful lake. I can spent all my days here. A great piece of Earth accessible by public. You can picnic, kayak, track and camp around. I will definitely go back again.
  • Amazing place for camping, bbq, kayaking or just to spend the day
  • No words can describe the beauty of this place.
