Campground Description

Campground Description

Pro Contributor

Cultus Lake Provincial Park is a wildly popular weekend destination for Vancouverites, and it draws sizeable crowds from nearby Seattle and Bellingham as well. And for good reason. This large freshwater lake is nestled among thickly forested hills within the Skagit Range in southern British Columbia. Wildlife abounds among the mossy, verdant old-growth trees, and though it’s only a 1.5-hour drive from the high-rises of downtown Vancouver, it feels a world away.

The maximum overnight group size permitted at the campground is eight people, and sites are able to be reserved between March 24 and October 10. It’s still possible to stay overnight outside of this date range, although some of the amenities like water and security may not be available.

One major contributing factor to the popularity of Entrance Bay Campground is neighboring Entrance Bay Day Use Area + Swim Beach. It offers a long, sloping pebbly beach, a plethora of picnic tables, a small playground, and a roped-off swimming area. Jade Bay is also easily accessible from the campground and offers an additional bathroom and boat ramp.
