Located 80km east of Vancouver, Davis Lake Park is characterized by a small warm-water lake, beaches and a scenic waterfall.
The park represents unique ecology that is not commonly found in the Lower Mainland area, including a virtually pure western hemlock stand and prime bird habitat. The access road into the parking area is approximately 1km of deactivated road (unmaintained gravel road) and signage is limited.
There is one short trail to the scenic falls. All other hiking would be on existing old forest service roads. Some roads are inside the park but most are outside the park boundary.
There is swimming available in the lake; however, it would not be considered a qood quality swimming area. The beach is considered “rustic” with some sand. There are no lifeguards on duty.
There are canoeing/kayaking opportunities at this park. Canoes and kayaks will have to be portaged into the lake (approximately a 15-minute hike). There are no canoe / kayak-accessible campsites.
There is fishing for kokanee, longnose sucker, northern pikeminnow, rainbow trout, westslope (yellowstone) cutthroat trout. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
Davis Lake Park is located 19km north of Mission. Access is via Sylvester Road. Just north of the park boundary, this road accesses a secondary road that descends south back down the slope to Davis Lake. Please note that access is walk-in only. The access road into the parking area is approximately 1km of deactivated road (unmaintained gravel road) and signage is limited.
