Welcome to the new BC Parks website


Vehicle-accessible camping
There is a rustic campground at Marks Lake with three small camp sites. They each have a picnic table, fire ring, and a space to park a vehicle. They are nestled amongst the trees and are fairly shady. All campsites are on a first-come, first-served basis; no reservations. There are no pay phones at this park and the closest store is in 100 Mile House. The campsites are open year-round if accessible.
Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed; no facilities are provided.


Firewood is not provided. Firewood may be purchased outside the park, or you can bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act ). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.

Pit or flush toilets
This park only has pit toilets, located at Maitland and Marks Lake. There are no flush toilets.
The main access road also continues to Maitland Lake and, while it is too rough to drive, it is possible to hike on the road to the cabin on Maitland Lake. It is about a twenty minute walk. 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.
The canoe route consists of a chain of 12 small lakes and is popular for day and overnight trips. The main canoe launch at Marks Lake provides parking as well as 3 campsites and a pit toilet. Maitland and Kirkland Lakes are also accessible by walking trail. The floating peat bogs are very sensitive to degredation by canoeists during low water levels. Because of this, portions of the chain may be restricted during such times.

This park is open to hunting. Please check the Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.

Winter recreation
This park provides opportunity for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. However, there are no set tracks and access to the park and trails is not maintained during the winter.
