Description

This provincial park has 25 sites split across six different camping areas, located at various points on the road side of the lakes. Each site has a rustic picnic table, rock fire ring and pit toilet. The park is open year-round when accessible. Sites at Francis and Hanna Lake can accommodate one camping party each. The ranger cabin site accommodates one party with the opportunity to stay inside the cabin. Nahatlatch has three camp sites. Salmon Beach has two camp sites. Squakum has eleven camp sites. All sites are situated in treed areas, on the shores of the lake. Most visitors camp in either tents or campers. Because the access road to the park can be very rough, very few camp in trailers or 5th wheels. Access to this park is via an active logging road, which is usually busy Monday through Friday. Sections of this road are narrow, hilly, rough, and can be very dusty. Please drive carefully. Long weekends are very busy at this park. The closest phone and shopping facilities are at Boston Bar. Firewood can be purchased from the Park Operator or you may bring your own wood. Water is available from the lakes and various creeks in the area. All water should be treated or boiled before consuming. There is a small rustic boat launch next to the Salmon Beach campground. The launch has a dirt surface and can accommodate a small motor boat or car top boat. Power boats are rarely used on these lakes. Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears. The lakes are very cold but provide opportunities to swim. The lake bottom is usually rocky with small areas of sand. During high water, until mid August, there are little or no beach areas. Visitors should use caution when swimming near the outflow of the lak

Beautiful views from this campground, but it's not well kept, especially for the higher fees that come along with a provincial park site. The FSR is wide enough for two vehicles in most parts, the only questionable part of the road is from the FSR into Squakum. Rugged in spots, you would want a higher clearance all-wheel drive vehicle for sure, if not a 4x4 when the terrain would be wet. The provincial park has about 25 sites in total, most of them being in Squakum Campground (7 out of 12 sites in this campground have direct lake access), the rest of the campgrounds are in bundles of 1 or 2 sites along the road, all of these have direct lake access.

Super quiet here. We came off a logging road and missed the main signs so stayed the night without paying. No one came around. Only one other camper at our campsite that had many sites. Looks like a great place for non motorized boats, even a small section of rapids . Road in is pretty rough.
