Group camping

There are 3 group campsites at this park, all of which are vehicle-accessible and located across the highway from Sproat Lake. A trail to the lake and beach leads through a highway underpass and takes approximately 10 minutes. These group sites are reservable. Camping is not permitted in this park after October 15.

Youth group camping charges per night are $1/person (6+), with a $50 minimum and $150 maximum. Read the Youth Group policy about Criteria for Youth Groups.

Regular group camping charges per night are the base rate for the site, which is $20.00/group site/night, plus $5/adult (16+, minimum charge for 15 adults), plus $1/child (6-15). Children under 6 are free!

While fires are allowed, we encourage visitors to conserve the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using stoves instead. Campfire rings are provided at each group campsite. Firewood can be purchased from the Park Operator. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary. 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. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.

There are two access trails to Sproat Lake – one at the group campground and one at Camp 10. Both trails take approximately 10 minutes. The group campsite access trail goes under a highway bridge. 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.
Swimming opportunities exist in Sproat Lake, which can be accessed by trails from either the Camp 10 day-use area or the group campground. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
Paddling opportunities exist at this park, but visitors will have to walk down the trail to the lake (approximately 10 minutes) with their vessels. Camp 10 is the best location to set in canoes and kayaks.

There are opportunities for lake fishing at this park. Fishing is permitted as per provincial and federal fishing regulations and is subject to closures. All anglers should check the current regulations issued by Fisheries and Oceans Canada prior to fishing. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash and under control 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.

Cycling is permitted on roadways only. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Taylor Arm 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.
