Ruth Lake Park


Picnic areas
This park has a day-use/picnic area operated by a local community group. The day-use area is the beach with grassy area, bear proof garbage can and pit toilets. There are no picnic tables.
Pit or flush toilets
This park only has pit toilets.
Boat launch
There is a single-wide rough boat launch ramp that provides access to Ruth Lake.
There are no facilities for swimmers. Ruth Lake is very popular with local residents for swimming. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks and no area is roped off for swimming at this park.
Canoeing and kayaking are enjoyable activities on Ruth Lake. However, the lake is also used for power boating.

Ruth Lake is a popular spot for fishing for trout. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

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. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
People can enjoy waterskiing at Ruth Lake.
