  • We had friends coming through on their way to the coast. They wanted to stay near the lake. They thought the location was perfect for being central to people and places they wanted to see. We had a gr...  more »
  • It's a great place to camp in a camper. We camped in a tent and the area where you can put up your tent is full of rocks.Not big rocks that you can pick up but full of small rocks that hurt when you s...  more »
  • Great one to two hours hike around former wildfire area. If you get lucky, might even spot a mountain goat. The paths are in good shape but terrain has quite a bit elevation gain. Twice. So especially...  more »

  • Really love this Park, been coming here since it opened in the 80s, highly recommend for camping and picnics, great for families. Something that needs improvement is maintenance, both bathrooms by our site the men's stall doesn't latch so when someone checks they see you sitting on the toilet, I know the one bathroom by the Creek has been that way for at least 2 months and bathroom near picnic area constantly leaking water behind toilet (backing up) did that last year as well, don't let your shorts touch the floor! Another more concerning issue is large tree branches falling, there can be huge winds that rush through BCP, in our site there was a large branch that fell on to a table just before we set up. And worse I noticed that branch 3 weeks prior when visiting, I said it's going to fall. I have seen other trees and suspicious branches this year. Also campsite: 109 has serious erosion from Creek and I'm pretty sure a safety officer would not allow people to be camped there?
  • Beautiful, well-established hiking trail. You don't realize the ground you cover until you're there! Lots of excellent, safe vantages and photo opportunities.
  • Close to the city, which is both a plus and a minus. Campsites are smaller than most other Provincial Parks, and there's not a lot separating the sites besides grass. Only one hiking trail within walking distance, but has a nice beach area.
  • Clean, quiet and beautiful. Great place for picnic and a swim. Gorgeous hiking trails beautiful waterfalls right across the highway
  • Easy to get to and park at, not very pretty, but a good hike for exercise. The views at the top are nice but just ok
