Boat launch

There is an undeveloped gravel boat-launching area. There is a small parking area for vehicles/boat trailers at the bottom of the entrance road before the camping area. Please check with the Park Operator before parking any vehicles/trailers in the parking area. Please note vehicles are prohibited from parking on any roadways within the park.


While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood is not provided in this park by the Operator. However, you are more then welcome to bring your own firewood as long as it meets current campfire restrictions of 0.5 meter X 0.5 meter in size.

Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act ). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.

For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
At the campground there is a natural sand/pebble beach on Adams Lake. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks. There is no roped off swimming area.
There are opportunities for canoeing and kayaking at this park.

Fishing is popular at Adams Lake for kokanee and rainbow trout. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. Access to the park is closed after snowfall accumulations are deep enough to make the road unsafe.

Wildlife viewing
There are great viewing opportunities of Adams Lake from the Adams Lake West Road.
Pets on leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement.

Cycling is permitted only on public and park roads. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted.
