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

We walked around the lake starting from the camping to the left. Most of the way we couldn't see the lake and walked on a gravel road. The trail was not clearly marked and we missed a small path going down right next to the lake. When we found it it was beautifull. I think it is wiser to walk... More

Went there and the Park Rangers there were very unfriendly. Constantly harassed us for extremely stupid reasons. Was ready to leave after the first day because of them, however, we had already paid for the weekend so we stayed and just avoided them as much as possible. The area is amazing and the scenery is great but the Park Rangers... More

Spent a day here with friends visiting from England and they just loved it. Took canoes out on the lake and they said this was exactly what they thought Canada was like in the wild. Beautiful place and easy to get to by road.

Because the trail to Sandy Cove was not accessible we went to Hicks Lake based on an old memory. Was a great easy hike. Very few people. Mostly went along an old service or logging road. One wash-out was easily crossed. Back at the main beach the Canada Geese were on patrol as I think it was mating season. They... More
