Situated adjacent to Clear Creek Campground, Delta Cove Campground in Cultus Lake Provincial Park offers better access to the lake—there’s hardly anything better than waking up and watching the lake and surrounding forested hills slowly become illumined by the rising sun. Fishing tends to be best in the morning, and the warm, freshwater lake is home to trout, Dolly Varden, steelhead, and five different types of salmon. Fly fishing and trolling tend to yield the best results, and on a busy in-season weekend, you’ll see many fishermen casting lines. Before you cast your own, be sure to obtain a British Columbia Freshwater Fishing License, available for purchase in the neighboring town.

Fishing isn’t the only way to pass time at Cultus Lake. The lake tends to be warm and is great for swimming, though there have been some reported cases of swimmer’s itch. There is a network of hiking trails that twist though the park—most are short and without much elevation gain. The trailhead for Teapot Hill is just southwest of the campground and is an excellent, leisurely afternoon hike.

Although Delta Grove is one of the smaller campgrounds in Cultus Lake Provincial Park, it’s one of the most popular because it has such direct access to the lake. Keep in mind that if you’re hoping to make last-minute plans for a busy summer weekend, you could be out of luck.

Delta Grove Campground is typically open from March 24 through October 10. Campers are still able to stay overnight outside of those dates, but amenities like potable water and security may not be available. Plan early! Only about one third of the sites are privy to immediate lake access, and they are the first ones to be reserved.

Site 38 - Absolutely stunning campsite. 38 is most accessible to the water, very generous in size and has gorgeous views with trees to frame giving just the right amount of sun and shade. It has a small private beach area and is within very close proximity to the potable water faucet and outhouse. Short walk to the washrooms and showers. (Shower is nice and warm and room was accommodating) Watching the sun go down on the water at the beach area was a real treat. Evening is when the fish were jumping and nibbling at the surface. Very close to Teapot Hill (which is definitely worth the walk to the viewing point.) Loved that the general store and liquor store/pub are only a short bike ride away incase you forgot anything. Very friendly locals! We had an amazing time and hope to go back soon.
