Vehicle-accessible camping
This park offers vehicle accessible campsites on a first-come, first-served basis – campsite reservations are not accepted. There are no camping fees. Eight campsites are available; each have a fire ring and picnic table.

The park is open until the snow flies, then it becomes inaccessible until the spring melt. Operational window is usually May 1st to October 31st.
Drinking water
Lake water is available; please boil before using.
Boat launch
A concrete launch provides access to the Ootsa Lake reservoir and North Tweedsmuir Park. It has a gentle grade and is singlewide. There is also a floating wharf for mooring boats. Trailers can be parked and boats moored overnight but space is limited.
Firewood is not available at this park, visitors must provide their own. 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
This park has a day-use/picnic area.
Pit or flush toilets
This park has pit toilets – no flush toilets.
There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
Little Andrews Bay is a sheltered area suitable for smaller boats, but visitors wishing to venture further onto Ootsa Lake should use extreme caution. Large waves can develop very suddenly and you don’t want to find yourself caught out in open water.

Fishing for rainbow trout can be very rewarding. 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.
