Dusty bumpy drive, but great family outing at the lake!

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... read more

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

Charming location, quite and calm, perfect camping spot and a perfect escape from the town and noises life, just make sure your are well prepared for a camping trip, the nearest shop would be at least 30 min away

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.

Fresh water lake, really pretty, wasn't very busy for a July sunny day although it was a Thursday. Rented a canoe and paddled to an island in the middle of the lake. Really worth going Hicks. Not sure where all the wild parties are happening but when we were there it was pretty dead. Take some floaties and food and... More

Camping in Harrison Hot Springs without a reservation on a July weekend may not have been the best plan.. On our unfruitful search through Sasquatch Provincial Park for a campsite, we looked down at Hicks lake and made a mental note to revisit. The next day we returned, a little later in the day (which meant parking was impossible) but... More

The road to the lake is gravel with a rough washboard effect. The lake is warm. We took a kayak to the far side of the lake and had a beach area all to ourselves.
