Very pretty little lake

Clean and quiet and family friendly. Pretty little lake with boat rentals. Wicked mosquitos! Couldn't get away from them, they seemed to love fly repellant!

We camped in the area (Bench Campground ) this past weekend during heavy rainfall & thunderstorms. Fortunately, to our delight, it cleared up on our last day so we went to Hick's lake to swim and tan. There weren't sand beaches around the lake (from what we could see) - mostly gravelly spots and some smooth rocks to use. Not... More

I really enjoy the scenery, great picnic area. Perfect for the kids, they ran all around. They loved the stage in the woods, nice and clean there. I'd love to camp...I wonder how much it is

We camped at Bench campground. Big campsites...quite campground. We had a great time. Only downfall was trying to find a parking spot at Hicks so we could go spend the day on the lake. Once we found one...we had a good day just floating around.

The gravel road portion (about 10 minutes of driving) to Hicks Lake in Sasquatch Provincial Park is a bumpy ride – even at 15 mph – and your car will be covered in dust. But once at the lake, you’ll surely enjoy the views & lakeside opportunities – hiking, camping, kayaking, swimming, & lots of hide-away spots for secluded picnicking... More

It's about a 20 min drive from Harrison and well worth it. We hiked around the lake first (about 6 k) and then cooled off in it! Lots of little beaches with tables and areas for small BBQ's. Less crowded than Harrison and also not as cold!

I came here for a couple nights to meet with some new friends. It's quite a nice spot! I love those coniferous trees with the large trunks and they don't get in your way. Needles don't fall down on you making a mess. The lake was nice and warm, but really mushy at the bottom a few meters out. I'd... More

Quiet, pretty. Not many people come to this lake. So it's nice in that sense. lots of picnic tables. A little bit of sand, which is cool. Chill, good for picnics.
