4.3/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web
Lakelse Lake Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada located just west of Highway 37 between Terrace and Kitimat. The name is derived from the Coast Tsimshian language word "LaxGyels" - “fresh water mussel”, for the mollusk that is found on the bottom of both Lakelse Lake and Lakelse River. Prior to Lakelse Lake becoming a provincial park, Hatchery Creek, which runs throughout the park, was the site of a sockeye salmon hatchery operated by the Canadian Government between 1919 and 1936. Lakelse Lake Provincial Park was established on March 16, 1956.The park is 3.54 km² in size and is primarily used for camping, boating, canoeing, swimming and nature trail walking.The nearby Lakelse Hot Springs are located just east of the lake.

  • Nice campsite; we were on the gravel side and the sites were quite open and not as private as I'd prefer, but the setting was lovely. People seemed to honour the generator rules so it wasn't too noisy. Seemed like a very family-friendly place. The beach and day use areas were not dog friendly, so we had to drive down the road to another walk-in beach (Grunchys Beach) to go for a swim and enjoy the sandy beach. Showers had been recently renovated and were kept quite clean, and they were free! Which is good news, since it costs $28/night to stay here.
  • This is a beautiful lake with a nice park in the day use area. Great for boating, swimming or even just a picnic. This lake can get quite buys on the nicest days.
  • Beautiful campground and beach area!!!!
  • lake is good for summer swim and winter skating.
  • Might be camping here next June!!
