Hicks lake has clean water, it's a quiet family orientated spot that has more adults and kids being responsible and having clean fun. Way better than cultus.

If you are looking for a lake that is not filled with tourist, this is the one for you. There are only out houses there, no washrooms. In addition, watch for the geese poo!

great place for a walk through woodland paths along the lakeside (for the most part), the RV park and the water near it tend to be busy but once you are 20 minutes into the hike you get solitude, nice breeze off the lake, shade from the trees.

3 families total 9 people including a child planned on a afternoon outing and BBQ trip and found this place on google maps. Considering the wet weather during the long weekend of early July this location was secluded dry and far from the rural life. We embarked on the journey without knowing much about the location. All of us left... More

I have been camping here since I was a child. And I now bring my children here to camp. The lake is beautiful! If you are lucky to have a boat, the islands are fun to explore, and the sandy beach at the other side is awesome! You can also hike around the lake to get there as well. The... More

Spent many days there in the last 35 years, because it is close to Vancouver, open all year. Lake is good already late spring for swim, 2 beautifil island on the lake too. People go there tend to be noisier then Deer lake. Also it is higher up, then Deer lake cooler.

super pretty - ample free parking and far fewer people than expected on a holiday long weekend. Kayaks & Paddleboard are available for rent lakeside....$40/2hrs is a little high, but totally worth it to capture the beauty of Hicks!

Didnt even know the lake was here. Wife surprised me with a picnic for two here and the beauty and peacefulness was beyond amazing and perfect.

West side of lake is a trail - a few ups and downs, but not hard. The East side of the lake is a gravel road. Pretty views of the lake all along the hike. Find the little trail at the south end that goes down to the beach. Stop and have a picnic. It's like having your own lake... More
