Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. There is a user-maintained campsite at the south end of Lacoma Lake and a former forest recreation site at Cameron Lake which is also user-maintained.

Practice “Leave No Trace” camping: 

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

There is an 11 km trail from Trepanier Creek to Lacoma Lake that is well marked from the trailhead parking area at Clover Creek to Lacoma Lake. 

The first half of the trail is easy grade following an old road. The second part of the trail, has steep sections and passes through mixed evergreen and deciduous forest. There are interesting valley and canyon views. Elevation gain is about 200 m (650 ft.) Allow five to seven hours for a comfortable round trip. 

The trail is not maintained regularly and may not be to BC Parks standards. 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.


Rainbow trout are found in Lacoma Lake. 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. Lacoma and Cameron lakes are in Region 8 (Okanagan).


Cycling and mountain biking is permitted in this park. For details on e-biking within Trepanier Park, see the e-biking section.


Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are permitted on signed or designated trails within Trepanier Park, provided they meet the definitions and criteria for e-bike use as outlined in the BC Parks cycling guidelines.


Trepanier is open to hunting during the lawful game season. See the British Columbia Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis for further details.
