As of August 29, 2013, the backcountry of Roche Lake Park has multiple hazard trees that pose a potential safety risk.
Camping outside of managed campgrounds is not recommended at this time. For more information, contact BC Parks at 250-371-6200.
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. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. 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. Campfires must not exceed half a metre in height. Keep fires small, save trees and conserve firewood. Do not leave your campfire unattended. This is a high-risk forest fire area.
Swimming is available in this park. There are no lifeguards on duty.
Lakes are stocked with rainbow trout. This is a world-class rainbow trout fishing area. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
Ice fishing is sometimes available. Ensure that ice is safe before attempting this activity because aeration is used in some of the lakes to prevent winter kill.
The Freshwater Fishing Society provides more information on fishing at Roche Lake.
There are many informal trails for cycling. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.
Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Roche Lake 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 many informal unset trails for cross-country skiing and for snowshoeing. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails.
Ice skating is available in this park. Ensure that ice is safe before attempting this activity because aeration is used in some of the lakes to prevent winter kill.
