We can't camp at this provincial park because the sites are too small for our travel trailer. Too bad....we will go to Deer Lake sites.

Just went for the drive and found a perfect jewel of beauty, peace and solitude. Went down to the boat launch and couldn't believe how quiet it was. We could hear 2 ducks that were half way across the lake. Loved the time spent in absolute silence.

Beautiful location. Easy to access. Yes, there is a long gravel road that gets a little bumpy, but just take it slow and you'll be fine. There are bears in the area so be smart with your food. I would recommend avoiding the campsites adjacent to the outhouses. When the wind blows in your direction it can be pretty nasty.... More

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
