Niskonlith Lake offers rustic camping and is popular for swimming, fishing and boating. There are limited facilities, so campers should be self-sufficient.
This park offers 29 vehicle-accessible campsites on a first-come, first-served basis; campsite reservations are not accepted. Most of the campsites within the park are suitable for campers and small trailers only; however there are more open camping spots at the south end of the campground that may allow for larger trailers. Most sites are shaded. There is no gatehouse at this park. There is limited parking for extra vehicles.
Self-registration: please choose a site and self-register at the pay station.
Firewood is not provided in this park by the Operator. However, you are more then welcome to bring your own firewood as long as it meets current campfire restrictions of 0.5 meter X 0.5 meter in size.
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. Bring a portable stove for cooking.
Fishing is popular at Niskonlith Lake for kokanee and rainbow trout. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
