Picnic areas

A large grassy day-use area features 26 picnic tables, most with fire pits, and an adventure playground. A picnic shelter, complete with a wood stove, is ideal for covered activities. Beside a lovely sandy beach there is a designated area in the lake for swimmers. Visitors can also enjoy a game of volleyball. There are flush toilets, change rooms, and showers available. Note: the day-use area is open all year, but the snow is not plowed during the winter.

Pit or flush toilets

Visitors will find pit toilets located throughout the park. There are flush toilets located centrally in the campground as well as the day-use area.


Showers are located in both the campground and day-use area.

Drinking water

Cold water taps are located throughout the park. Hose hookups are not available for campers or trailers.


An adventure playground is located in the day-use area.

Electrical hookups

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. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. Firewood can be purchased in the park, or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, it is prohibited to 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.


Trails connect the campground and the beach area. Those who enjoy walking can explore the park along the shoreline of Tyhee Lake and through the aspen forest as they follow the 2.5 km Aldermere 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. Swim within the designated area to avoid conflicts with power boats and water skiers. The beautiful sandy beaches are popular with young and old alike. Adults can relax on the grassy slopes or enjoy a game of volleyball.


Canoeing is a popular activity on Tyhee Lake (as well as kayaking for beginners).


Anglers of all ages can try their hand for native cutthroat or stocked rainbow trout. Minnows like the peamouth chub, red shiner, and pygmy whitefish can challenge the younger fisher. Anyone fishing in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. There are ice fishing opportunities in the park.

Wildlife viewing

There are excellent opportunities for bird watching in the marshy areas of the lakeshore, and wildlife may be seen in the adjacent forests. The dead trees, bulrushes and cattails provide nesting sites and protection for a variety of birds, including loons, red-winged blackbirds, and downy woodpeckers.

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 behavior and must dispose of their excrement.


Bicycles must be kept to roadways and designated aresas. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia. There is a small bike track for kids near the shower building in the middle of the campground.

For details on e-biking within Tyhee Lake Provincial Park, see the e-biking section.


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


There are waterskiing opportunities in this park.

Winter recreation

Visitors can enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the park. There are also ice skating and ice fishing opportunities.
