Inland Lake Provincial Park
About This Park
Prior to 1997, this park was a Forest Service Recreation area. The area was established as a provincial park in 1997. Many years ago, the Model Community Society constructed a 13 km wheelchair-accessible trail around Inland Lake.
There are drive-in and walk-in campsites available at this park, as well as opportunities for swimming, cycling, fishing, canoeing and boating (<10hp).
The Model Community Project for People with Disabilities have led a two year effort to drastically improve the trail and facilities at Inland Lake Provincial Park. The “Model Community” work in partnership with BC Parks under a Shared Stewardship Agreement. They have successfully raised over 250K of funds to support the park improvement. BC Parks wishes to publically thank the Model Community for their great effort and dedication.

The entire trail provides excellent viewing opportunities for disabled persons. There are 3 cabins spaced around the 13 km trail with wheelchair-accessible pit toilets at each cabin.

Vehicle Accessible Camping
This park offers 22 vehicle accessible campsites. There are no double or pull-through sites available. Camping is under canopy of trees. There is no gatehouse or locked gate. There is room for one vehicle at each site and extra parking is available for a fee. Reservations are accepted at this park and first come, first-served sites are also available.
If no staff is available to help find a site, find an unoccupied site that has no camping receipt posted at the site and the host will come and collect your fee in the evening. There is no pay phone in the park. The closest store is in Powell River, approximately 10 kilometres away.
Wilderness, backcountry or walk-in camping is allowed, but there are no facilities provided. There are three walk-in campsites on Anthony Island. The hike in is approximately 3 kilometres. Camping is on the bare ground. Please camp in designated sites. There are pit toilets available. There is a designated fire ring for campfires; you will need to pack in your own firewood.
BC Parks Backcountry Registration System allows you to purchase a backcountry camping permit before leaving home. Although the system does not reserve a campsite, the system provides visitors the convenience of prepaying for their trip and not having to carry cash. We encourage all visitors to register online so we can reduce the need to collect fees in the field.
