This was a lake with clean water and a decent sized sandy beach. The kids enjoyed digging and building in the sand. The scenery is lovely and relaxing. Only complaint -- there were limited picnic tables.

Hayward Lake is a great spot to go for a picnic or family outing. It is close enough for anyone in the Lower Mainland to have a nice getaway. There is a nice beach, picnic tables, trails and washroom facilities.

Hayward is much more open and fun than Sasquatch. Water is warm. Backdrop is beautiful. Sandy beach is so nice. Mid-evening, midweek was the perfect time to swim and relax on a hot summer day. Crowded and little to no shade are only drawbacks, if...More

Clean, accessible, and good toilets. Ultimately, other than the sunshine and sand, these are the things one wants at the beach. The boat launch has been turned into an access point for canoes and non-motorized water crafts only which changes the whole experience at this...More

A bit out of the way but a nice lake. Nice and clean and not too busy. The water is pretty cold though. A real nice place to have a picnic. There's not too much on the way there so bring what you need.

We were camping at Rolley Lake and drove here for the day, it was so much better than Rolley Lake. The beach is great and the kids loved having real toilets.

This is a great place for stand up paddling as motorized boats are not allowed here. So it's safe for kids and those who are into kayaking. The only downside about this place is limited parking unless you park at BC Hydro museum and walk...More

The trails are well maintained. Now that the rain has subsided much less run off across the trail. Good canopy cover on a hot sunny day. Lunched at the boat launch. About 15 KM round trip including out and back on the trail the is...More

You have to get there very early if you want a parking spot! It's worth it though if you can do it. The first time we went we found a sand bar that we pulled our kayaks onto and rested and swam, but the next...More

In google look for Hayward Lake Reservoir. It will take you there. If you follow GPS and it takes you to a cul-de-sac in Yeo Street then turn around, get to the Dewdney Trunk Road, turn right and go towards Steve Falls... More
