Yes a nice get away spot. Not much there but a nice lake experience. Campground was OK = quite far to the bathrooms . could use more picnik tables. Wasn't funny at the time but we had a bear roam into our campground in the middle of the nite. Pretty scary until a raccoon who had been snacking on our... More

We drove here just to see it. There is a boat launch. It was very quiet - no one there but us. I suppose it is busier in the summer.

I have been here camping with my family and we have always had a good time. The lake is on the smaller side so its easier for a parent to watch their children and give them a feel of independency. It is a favourite activity for us all to float across the lake to the other side for an adventure,... More

We found this little jewel while out exploring and cannot wait to bring our children. It's the PERFECT family camping trip. Great for Kayaking out to the little islands, lots of private coves and beaches along the shore. Also just a few minutes out of Harrison Hot Springs so you can make day trips into town to enjoy the "city"... More

We swam in Hicks Lake in September. The lake was clean, clear and surprisingly warm. Blue skies and some hot rocks to sunbath on made for a perfect afternoon.

The drive is a bit topsy-turvy getting there but it's worth the motion sickness - just take your Gravol before you go! We found a little beach with a rocky shelf going down into the water and had an amazing day. The rock went into the water like a dinosaur's toes - I told them we were sitting on the... More

Love the campground. There is water and outhouses just a short walk away from most spots. The lake is gorgeous. It's nice just to lounge and enjoy the scenery or dive in for a swim.

Walked the 6 km loop round Hicks Lake. Easy to moderate. 40% on forest walk tight to lake, 40% on logging road close to lake but higher with 3" minus rock surface (the large gravel would have been hard walking for our Lab but for the packed areas where the truck tires were) and 20% on smooth dirt road near...

One of the nicest sites within local proximity of town. Have been there multiple times for summer weekend getaways. It's within an hour and a half of home and the lake is wonderful to spend the day on the beach and in the water. This is defiantly my go to spot if I want to go camping for a weekend.

I really enjoyed being in and on the lake, but found the campground so treed it felt dark and gloomy to me. But don't dispare! There are actually a series of campgrounds along the road and I found one I really liked just past Hicks Lake.
