Marine-accessible camping

Marine-accessible or wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. 

Practice Leave No Trace camping:

  • If you pack it in, pack it out
  • Choose a camp spot that will not do damage to live vegetation
  • Dispose of personal waste or waste water at least 100 metres from the lake or from any creek

You can swim in the lake but there are no designated swimming areas. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
Boaters are cautioned to keep a close eye on the weather as Trembleur Lake is subject to sudden heavy winds which can transform the lake into dangerous whitecaps. Those with small boats are advised to stay close to shore.

The settlement on the north side of Trembleur Lake at Middle River can be reached from the Leo Creek Forest Service Road. Access to the lake from Stuart Lake is via the Tachie River; this 26 kilometre river can be a challenge to navigate with fast water and small rapids.

Popular sport fish include dolly varden, rainbow trout, lake trout (char), kokanee, freshwater ling cod (burbot), and mountain whitefish. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. Refer to the current BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis for specific catch quotas and regulations; the Stuart-Trembleur-Takla chain of waterways is in Region 7 (Omineca-Peace) – Zone A.


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 Trembleur 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.


Trembleur Lake is open to hunting during the lawful game season. See the Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis for further details.
