Accessibility information

Accessibility information is available for these areas of the park:

Drinking water

Cold water taps and handpumps are located throughout the park. Taps are shut off during the off-season. There are no hose hook-ups for campers and trailers.


Big Toy playground equipment is located at Sunset View and Emerald Bay campgrounds. Horseshoe pits are available in all three campgrounds. Please bring your own horseshoes.

Boat launch

Two paved, single-boat launches are located in the park. One is on the southside at Sunset View campground and the other is on the north side at Little Arrowhead picnic site. There is a parking area for vehicles and boat trailers at both places.


A sani-station and dump is available during the collecting season. The sani-station facilities are located at the junction of North Green Lake Road and North Bonaparte Road, 12 km west of Sunset View campground and 18 km southwest of Emerald Bay.

Sani-station use fee: $5 per discharge

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.

Picnic areas

Picnic and day-use areas are located at Blue Spring, Little Arrowhead, Emerald Bay, and Sunset View

Day-use areas at Sunset View and Emerald Bay also feature picnic shelters. Blue Spring, Little Arrowhead, and Sunset View have a locked gate between 10pm and 8am. Group picnicking is open in the summer and reservations are available for the Sunset View picnic shelter.

Pit or flush toilets

There is a self-guided 1 km 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. The sand and pebble beaches are shallow and warm with designated roped off swimming areas at all day-use and campground areas in the park.


Powerboating is popular on the lake, waterskiing 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 and 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 the potential for problems with bears and other wildlife.


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 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.
