We go every year as we ar from Quesnel. One of the most beautiful places to camp in the area, huge mountains with snow on top, Islands and beaches with white sand, and the water wasn;t too cold.

If you're looking to go for a swim while in Quesnel try the provincial park at Ten Mile Lake. Lots of great fishing, ask at Frank's for some great tips.
