Lillooet Lake is a beautiful lake north of Pemberton with several campgrounds and recreation sites along the 25 kilometer length of its northeast shore. The water is cold; swimming is great but is short lived on all but the hottest summer days. The lake and campgrounds are accessible via the In-Shuck-ch Forest Service Road, a well-maintained gravel road that is easily passable in any vehicle. Lillooet Lake is the primary attraction in the immediate vicinity, but visitors can continue down the In-Shuck-ch road to Skookumchuk Hot Springs at kilometer 58 or Sloquet Hot Springs 33 kilometers further, both of which also have campgrounds attached. Hikers might also look into heading up to Lizzie Lake or Tundra Lake, or take a short drive up the Duffey Lake Road to the hiking trails at Joffre Lakes.
Strawberry Point Campground is a beautiful walk-in campground at kilometer 7 of the In-Shuck-ch Road with a forested day-use area featuring some creative driftwood structures and lots of space to spread out along the adjacent large and sandy beach. Facilities are limited: there is a pit toilet, but there are no picnic tables designated camp spots or fire pits. The campground remains a quiet spot to camp even given its popularity.
Twin One Campground is a small, semi-open drive-in campground at kilometer 10 of the In-Shuck-ch road. Here you’ll find a boat launch, nice beach access, great views, and lots of room to explore the driftwood covered beaches. Facilities are limited, but picnic tables, garbage cans, and pit toilets are provided. Unlike the other three sites, Twin One Campground has plenty of room for large recreational vehicles.
Lizzie Bay Campground at kilometer 15 is another nice small forested campground that normally has 12 numbered sites. About half of them were inaccessible due to flooding and downed trees as of fall, 2015. The remaining sites are nice and have great beach access, but they face north and get little sun in the afternoon.
Driftwood Bay Campground is at kilometer 17 and has 10 drive-in spots and some space for walk-in camping. The bay has a great south-facing rocky beach where a lot of driftwood tends to accumulate. On busy summer weekends you may encounter a party crowd here.
