trailer trash festival
Aug 2020
This is an oily cesspool crowded badly with the illiterate trash of the Fraser Valley. It is a gross lake with a sludge bottom and flies and bugs hatching all over. Not to mention the overcrowding that you get with a spot popular among illiterate trailer trash.

Authority Abusing Park Rangers
Aug 2020 • Friends
We have decided to go camping for my birthday with my grandparents and two cousins. For my birthday night, we have decided to bbq next to the lake and potentially sleep on the beach watching the stars on our inflatable sleeping bags. The next thing I remeber, this elderly lady ranger starts pointing an extremely bright flashlight to our eyes and starts yelling without any reasonable attempt to listen us. She demanded us to empty the beach and return to our campsites. If I cannot watch the starts when I go camping from the beach, what is the point of all this?

Park rangers are abusing their authority and we can’t really do anything about it!

You Will be Glad you Went

This a great place to spend a day with children. I have taken my grandchildren several times and it's always a good day. Pack a picnic This park has the feeling of being in a wilderness setting removed from any frills enabling one to reconnect with nature. There is a very pleasant walking trail around the lake which takes about an hour and a half. Long enough for the kids to get some exercise but short enough that they enjoy the walk. Afterwards you can spend a few hours at the beach area where there are picnic tables and the kids can get their fill of fun in the water. On the way back you may want to stop at the Greenpoint picnic area on Harrison Lake. It's a beautiful spot but the water is cold. Then it's on to the town of Harrison Hot Springs where you find a variety of places to eat something before heading home.

Great Painting Location
Aug 2019
I am a full-time artist. I went up to HIcks Lake to see if it would be a nice painting location and it exceeded my expectations. A nice, natural feeling and looking location. Compared with Harrison Lake, Hicks Lake is quiet and offers many views that would make excellent references for paintings. This year, if possible, I will be going back there with a kayak to really explore its possibilities. Good parking, plenty of quiet places to set up a painting kit, an overall nice lake to visit

Nice!

One side of the lake is mostly a gravel road. The other side of the lake is a trail through the woods. The trail through the woods wasn't clearly marked and we ended up in a campground. It took awhile to find where we parked the car which was the day use area.

Lovely lake to canoe
Jun 2019 • Couples
We spent a relaxing afternoon paddling around the lake. Not too small or too large. Couple tiny islands gives it some charm, & a mountain peak peaking over the hills with some snow on it looked lovely. My fella dropped a line but no bites. We heard that there are fish here but we asked a few other folks in boats but they were not biting when we were there. Easy launch area. Sandy beach on the other side of the lake provides a quiet picnic and swim spot. We were there mid week in June so it was peaceful...but suspect it gets busy during peak periods.

Lovely on a sunny day!

We walked round the lake which was a nice walk. The lake is good for swimming and kayaking etc if you bring your own kayaks. A lovely spot but probably very busy in the summer!

Beautiful Hike and Beach access
Jun 2019 • Couples
This provincial park (Sasquatch) is located a short drive from Harrison Hot Springs. There are a few different picnic or beach access areas. We walked the 6 km trail that loops around the lake. It was beautiful and quiet on a Sunday morning. We enjoyed many spectacular vistas. We also walked through the camping area. This is a very nice park.

Love the Canadian park system. Care and convenience is the essence of every park we visited. Trails were maintained well and the lake views were lovely.
