Accessibility information is available for this park.

Picnic areas
This park has a day-use/picnic area. There are no shelters or change houses available. There is a grassy area and a sandy beach. There are 3 pit toilets. Some of the picnic tables have barbeque attachments; bring your own briquettes. There is a gate that is locked between 10pm and 7am. This is a very popular and busy park during the summer months.
Pit or flush toilets
This park only has pit toilets; no flush toilets.
There is an easy walking trail that goes around the lake. This park has excellent rock climbing on several cliffs. 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 is lake swimming at a sandy beach. There are no roped off areas or other swimming facilities. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks. For further information on water safety, contact the Lifesaving Society, BC and Yukon Branch.
There are paddling, canoeing and kayaking opportunities at this park; however, this is a very small lake. You may wish to seek other paddling opportunities. Kayak/canoe rentals are located nearby in Squamish.

Angling is permitted in this park. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash

Dogs are strictly prohibited from the main beach and picnic area. Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times. 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.


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 Murrin 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 climbing or rock climbing opportunities in this park. The climbing is varied from novice to expert with variety and diversity. There are approximately 250 routes. There are some bolted routes. Keep in mind that this is a very busy spot for climbing in the summer and parking is limited.

This Best Practices Guide recommends new guidelines and considerations for rock climbing route cleaning, including route development, and intends to balance climber’s needs with protecting the environment and public safety.

Winter recreation
The park is open during the winter months with limited services. Access may be restricted due to snow fall.
