As one of the most popular destination areas in the Lower Mainland, Cultus Lake Park is characterized by a large, warm freshwater lake and scenic forest-clad mountains. The park is almost evenly divided between the northwest and southeast sides of Cultus Lake. The northwest portion is mostly undeveloped with the visitor-oriented facilities confined to the southeast portion.
Just an hour and a half drive away from Vancouver, Cultus Lake Park has four campgrounds, a large day-use area for picnicking and boating, and ample opportunity for fishing, water skiing, wind surfing, and hiking.
The park is near the small community of Cultus Lake. This community offers waterslides, two golf courses, bumper boats, go-karts, as well as canoe, boat, and jet ski rentals. There is also a marina, miniature golf, restaurants, stables, laundromat, stores, and gas stations. Larger department stores are located in Chilliwack.
