Firewood can be purchased from the park operator in some parks or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented and some parks may use communal fire rings. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.


There is a self-guided 1km interpretative trail at Sunset View campground. 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.


There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks. There are good sand/pebble beaches and shallow, warm, roped off areas of water for swimming at all day-use and campground areas in the park.


Powerboating is popular on the lake, water-skiing conditions are ideal. Canoeing or kayaking is not recommended due to the high winds that arise on the large lake.


An annual restocking program of rainbow trout provides fair to good fishing opportunities. Locally, fishing is best described as challenging. Try a dark flatfish lure. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash

Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. 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.


There are numerous cattle trails in the area outside the park which can be used for cycling. Bicycles must keep to roadways. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Green Lake Provincial Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.


There are waterskiing opportunities at Green Lake.

Horseback riding

No horseback riding, except for guided trail rides at Emerald Bay (the guide operator is operating under permit with BC Parks).
