We have been to the lake numerous times over the years, always enjoyed the family picnics & swimming in the icy lake. Paid parking required if you go for the for the day. in certain areas. We also found a kids water park just as to turn up the road into the main highway towards the lake on 232nd. street.... More

It was a wonderful experience they said it was "full" but we went standby and got a site. The Alouette Lake was beautiful. Washroom were cleaned once a day they probably could do it more often. Peaceful and worth it. Camp rangers on duty 24/7 .

I went to this campsite with a few friends and thought it was OK. The only nice thing about this place is that its near the lake and has a bunch of hiking trails but other than that I DONT recommend. You literally feel like you're in a prison because the park rangers circle the campsite every 10 minutes and... More

I could explore Golden Ears forever! The park is huge and there is so much to do. Hiking to camping to swimming - possibilities are pretty much endless. Unplug yourself and spend some time in nature, you won't regret it.

For a day or a week, you can't do better. Lake and mountain views and shady cool forests. Sandy shores and rocky spots to explore. Nature at its best.

My family (with a 14 month old boy) and another family (with two young children) went camping at Alouette campground at Golden Ears for 2 nights 3 days in early July (during the week). The campground was spacious and clean. The bathroom and shower facilities were well maintained and clean (much better than we expected given the number of campers... More

Unplug your kids and go outside and play! Stunning scenery- beautiful beaches (Alouette Lake) and free parking! Golden Ears is huge- so if you are not an experienced outdoors person- stick to the well marked beaches, trails and campsites. Visitors frequently get lost in this massive provincial park- so be aware. This really IS the "woods" and yes- Goldilocks- there... More

The view is breath taking, I have been very lucky to live in Maple Ridge, BC for the last 40 years I look at the golden ears daily and every time I think how beautiful.

There are so many places off the main road for walking and hiking. A truly beautiful place that is abundant with wildlife and beauty. Try the many different hikes and walks along the Mike Lake turnoff and you will very often see us there! The camping is good to great - but gets very, very busy and that's why we... More
