Those who enjoy walking and hiking can explore the rolling topography and diverse landscapes of Eskers Park’s 15 km of marked trail linking Pine Marsh, Camp Lake and Kathie Lake. 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.
Circle Lake is an ideal location for families to learn flat-water canoeing. The canoe launch provides easy access to the lake. Those willing to carry a canoe into Camp Lake will find several portage trails connecting some of the smaller, more remote lakes between Camp and Kathie Lakes.

Camp and Kathie Lakes provide excellent angling opportunities for rainbow trout and brook trout. Camp lake also has a kokanee fishery. Lakeshore casting may produce a brook trout in Bow or Butterfly Lakes. Park also offers excellent ice fishing during the winter season. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Wildlife viewing
There is a viewing platform in this park. The park is a “outdoor classroom” for those who wish to study the array of birds and mammals that make their home in the wetlands among the eskers. The park’s diverse forest and numerous lakes provide excellent habitat for beaver, moose, deer, black bear, squirrels, grouse and abundant waterfowl.
Pets on leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times. 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.

Mountain bikes are allowed on all park roads and designated trails. The trails that are designated for cycling enthusiasts are the 2.3 km gated service road to Camp Lake. Another 3.2 km along a hilly trail will bring you to Kathie Lake. Bicycles are not allowed on any of the other trails within the park. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in BC.
