Takes about an hour and is a beautiful hike. The trail runs through the forest beside the lake. Some very nice vistas. Moderate inclines along the path.

There is a trail around the lake. It is beautiful and has picnic tables on once side of the lake., along with a couple of sandy beaches. It is a few miles from Harrison Hot Springs but worth the detour to see this.

Wanted to find out what the lake looked like, the provincial park is lovely. Lots of privacy, lots of trees and a very nice lake. Fishing is good and there were not too many people. EArly season so the actual campsite was closed, but we spent the afternoon exploring on foot.

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
