Campground Description

Campground Description


Andy Bailey Regional Park is one of only a few campgrounds within close proximity to the town of Fort Nelson. The campground is managed and maintained by the local municipality and uses a self-register check-in system because there is not a manager on-site at all times. To access the campground, travel south from Fort Nelson for 27.6 kilometers on the Alaska Highway. There will be signage indicating where to turn off to access the Andy Bailey lake access road. The lake and campground are a 16-kilometer drive down a gravel access road once you turn off the Alaska Highway. 

The park itself is 196 hectares in size, and it features a secluded lake in a boreal forest setting. It was named after pioneer Andy Bailey, who first cut the trail into the lake and constructed the access road into the campground. The campground features 14 sites in total, and all feature a picnic table and a makeshift campfire ring. It should be noted that, due to the lack of on-site management, there is no firewood available, so you must bring your own.  

The lake is a popular destination for locals who come down to the lake in the summer to swim, kayak, picnic, and fish for northern pike. There is a day-use area on the beachfront below the campsite loop and a boat launch for those looking to drop a canoe or kayak in the lake. Furthermore, Andy Bailey lake does not allow motorized boats.
