A well is located in the day-use parking area near the park entrance. Visitors can access water using the hand pump.
While 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.
There is a 500m walking trail along the lakeshore that leads to a wildlife viewing platform. Please supervise children on this trail. 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 are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks. Swimming is a popular activity in Seeley Lake during the summer months.
Seeley Lake Park offers canoeing and kayaking opportunities under the scenic backdrop of the Hazelton Mountains. Boat use is restricted to electric motors, only on Seeley Lake. There is no boat launch provided at the park.
Seeley Lake contains cutthroat and rainbow trout and fishing here can be rewarding. There are opportunities for ice fishing in this park.
Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
There is a wildlife-viewing platform located on the edge of Seely Lake. Visitors can gain access to it by following a short walking trail. The Seeley Lake marsh harbours nesting birds, mammals and reptiles.
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement.
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 Seeley Lake Provincial Park.
