Located on the eastern shore of massive 218-square kilometer Harrison Lake*, Green Point Day Use Area is the primary day use area for Sasquatch Provincial Park.

The shoreline park, located 6 kilometers north Harrison Hot Springs, provides a boat ramp access to Harrison Lake, restroom facilities, ample picnic tables, and a swim beach that is extremely popular during the hottest summer weekends. The water of Harrison Lake, however, tends to be quite cool, and strong winds aren't infrequent. Those with the small kids who are sensitive to cold water may find swimming at the park's Hicks Lake Campground or Lakeside (Deer Lake) Campground more agreeable.

Note: Leashed dogs are allowed in this day use area and on the trails; dogs are allowed to be off leash when they are swimming or if they are within 200 meters of the sides of the boat launch. Dogs are not permitted on the beach.

* In fact, at 60 kilometers in length, up to 9 kilometers in width, and with a maximum depth of 279 meters, Harrison Lake is the largest natural lake in the Vancouver Metro Area/Fraser Valley and the largest lake in the southern Coast Mountains of Canada.
