Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Team

Occupying 1,217 hectares of dense second-growth conifer forest on the eastern shore of Harrison Lake, Sasquatch Provincial Park is a popular summer getaway for those in the Fraser Valley for camping, paddling and fishing in any of the park's three distinct pocket lakes: Trout Lake, Hicks Lake and Deer Lake. And, while the park doesn't boast any major peaks itself, stunning glimpses of nearby white-capped craggy peaks can be viewed from each of the lakes' shorelines, including the Cheam Range (2,431 m) to the south, Hope Mountain (1,844 m) to the east, and Mount Breakenridge (2,395 m) on the north end of Harrison Lake.

Camping

Only a short 10-minute drive north of Harrison Hot Springs, the park provides two main campgrounds and one overflow campground, all of which provide potable water and vault toilets.

  1. Lakeside (Deer Lake) Campground. 42 sites, playground, boat ramp and dock. Open year-round with services from the end of March through mid-October. 
  2. Hicks Lake Campground. 72 sites, 1 group campsite, amphitheater and boat ramp. Open from the end of March through mid-October
  3. Bench Campground (overflow). 62 sites. Open early April through mid-October on an as-needed bases only.

Fishing + Boating

For anglers, all three smaller lakes are stocked with rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and brook char. No motors are permitted on Trout Lake, Deer Lake requires electric motors only, and Hicks lake allows for gas motors but maintains a 10-horsepower limit. There are no limits on Harrison Lake, which can be accessed at Green Point Day Use Area.

Hiking

Although the park doesn't have an extensive hiking trail system, a 4-kilometer nature trail circumnavigates Hicks Lake while a shorter, 500 meter interpretive trail makes a loop around Beaver Pond. Departing from the entry gate to Bench Campground, hikers will also enjoy the roughly 6-kilometer hike along an old four-wheel drive forestry road to Moss Lake. At Deer Lake, a short 2-kilometer trail flanks the southern shore of the lake and provides an interpretive boardwalk connecting Lakeside and Bench Campgrounds.

Note: ATV/OHVs are not permitted within the park, and overnight parking is not permitted at Green Point Day Use Area.
