Morice Lake Park


Cabins and huts

The Sanctuary Cabin (see Park map) is available for public use on a first-come, first-served basis. It is equipped with a woodstove and can accomodate 4 - 6 people. Visitors must supply their own sleeping and cooking equipment.

Marine-accessible camping

Wilderness camping is allowed; no facilities are provided.

Vehicle-accessible camping
This park offers vehicle accessible campsites on a first-come, first-served basis – campsite reservations are not accepted.

Morice Lake Park has an 18 unit campsite. Each of the campsites has a picnic table and fire ring. Pit toilets are available. The sites are suitable for tenting, pickup trucks with campers and small trailers. The campground is accessible during snow free months.

As this site is user maintained, please pack out what you pack in.
Picnic areas
Although there is no formalized day-use area, park visitors can utilize vacant lakeshore campsites for day visits.
Pit or flush toilets
This park only has pit toilets – no flush toilets.
Boat launch
A gravel boat launch is situated at the North end of the Morice Lake campsite. The boat launch is not steep. In fall when the water is low, it is often difficult to get boat trailers into deep enough water to launch.

Waterskiing and windsurfing are not popular activities on Morice Lake due to its very cold temperature.

Campfires are permitted.

Cutting or otherwise damaging any standing or fallen trees within the park is prohibited. Please collect firewood from outside the park.


A series of three short portage trails connects Atna Bay of Morice Lake (Morice Lake Provincial Park) with Atna Lake (Atna River Provincial Park). No other developed trails exist within the park.

Morice Lake is very cold, but those with a hardy constitution may be interested in a swim. Please do not use soap (even biodegradable) for washing in the lakes. If you must wash with soap, do it at least 50 m (150 ft) inland from the lakeshore. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
Morice Lake is a beautiful setting for a canoe trip. Winds and waves can come up quickly. Paddle early to avoid the wind and stay close to shore once it starts to blow.

Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence

Fishing is a popular activity on the lake. Angling restrictions are in place on the Morice River to protect spawning salmon and other species. There is no fishing near the outlet of Morice Lake to Gosnell Creek from January 1 to September 30 and no fishing for salmon at any time. The Morice River is a Class II water from September 1 to October 31 and a steelhead stamp is mandatory during that time. Bait is not permitted and angling from boats is not permitted from August 15 to December 31. Please read the BC Fishing Regulations.

Wildlife viewing
There are great viewing opportunities in Morice Lake Provincial Park.
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.

Hunting is allowed in the park. All hunters to the area should refer to the current BC Hunting Regulation synopsis.
