    On our way to Prince George we stopped at Purden Lake. It was a hot day and after a long ride a very welcome stop. Families were swimming, BBQing, playing games. It was clean, friendly.  more »

    My wife and I went to this location for an afternoon picnic and a swim. The beach has a little bit of rocks at the shore but once you get about a foot in there is sand so it is good on the feet. you c...  more »

    This is a great provincial campground. Unfortunately, it needs some work in terms of it's online presence. Last summer, we decided to go camping here with two parties. One with a tent trailer, the other with a very long fifth wheel trailer. Ours fit perfectly (tent trailer), while the other had an adventure. We reserved a spot and when we did, it asked for the length of the fifth wheel, so we entered and it suggested a certain site. Wrong! The fifth wheel was not able to maneuver into the assigned spot and unfortunately some damage was sustained to not only the trailer, but to the truck as well. After a very trying 30 minutes, in which time we blocked one way traffic for that time, we gave up. Now keep in mind, waiting in the long line of traffic, two cars in, was the part attendant. This person sat in their vehicle the entire time and watched as we vainly tried to get the trailer in and ultimately damage it and the truck. Once it was decided to scrub the mission, we drove off to the park office to ask if there was an overflow or other place to park the fifth wheel. This is where it gets interesting. There at the park office, was the same attendant who sat in the truck watching our struggles. He knew exactly where the overflow was and even commented that he watched us struggle. Now, if you were an attendant, whose job is to help campers, what keeps you glued to that seat of the vehicle without offering assistance? Nothing but sheer laziness. And if you think I'm making this up, the outhouses resembled something out of the slums of Calcutta. If you are going to have a booking system, which is exploited by greedy tour operators by the way, ensure that when you say a trailer will fit in a campsite, that it actually fits. $10K later, we know it didn't

    Nice lake, nice day use area with open and covered picnic areas and fire pits. Unfortunately dogs don't get to use the day use but they do have a dog beach if you're so inclined.

    Clean. Usually good people. Poor supervision by park staff of rowdier elements.

    Loved this lake , people need to respect it more . Never used to be garbage in the lake.

    Clean park with no cell signal. Great for a disconnected day with the family.
