Very nice place to sleep in rest area before Hyder with toilet, located without waste directly at a beautiful calm lake. No traffic ...

Latest Check-Ins

As described. Not too many people there at this tome of year.
A lot of bugs.

The previous reviews do a great job at explaining this place, it’s quiet and tranquil which is nice. No privacy though. The lake is a little dirty to swim in but the floating picnic table was fun. There’s also some good fishing in the lake! As noted, the best place to camp is right in the parking lot by the lake, otherwise there is one spot a bit past the parking lot. Do not continue to follow the road, there is nothing else except for steep trails that are hard to turn around/reverse out of.

As described. Free rec site with beautiful views. Nobody here except us today.

We were looking for a place to stay that would be convenient to visit Stewart/Hyder. We’re self-contained in our 8 metre (25 foot) MH and don’t use the facilities. We stayed on a weeknight in mid-September. There were 3 other RVs overnighting with us. There are no formal sites here. There’s one spot in the trees at the far end of the parking lot and another at the near end of the parking lot near a log, both on the lake side. Otherwise, park in the open lot – big enough for 4-5 RVs. Not much room to turn around if the lot is full. As noted by another review, there appears to be a road at the end of the lot. There are no other sites, the road quickly turns into a walking path. There’s no trash – pack it out. There’s no water. There's an outhouse. There’s a week ATT/Telus signal we were able to use with a booster. There’s no Verizon. The lake is pretty. The floating dock and floating picnic table look like fun. There are picnic tables to share on the beach. Decent road in on a very rainy day/night.

Endroit superbe plusieurs places bord du lac vu sur la montagne et cascade

Still the same! Very nice place to stay, quiet in the night. The floating picnic table still here. Thanks for sharing this loved place.

Nice spot. We backed into the first lot after the big parking lot. A deep puddle to cross, but then a perfect spot right on the lake, with fire bit and benches. Very quiet, great view.

Realy nice place to park your motorhome for the night.
We have a motorhome (8.1 meters long, 2.5 and 3.7 high) and it was ok .
Bur take care if there is too much people it can be hard to make a U turn.
We was 5this night.
Qieur place and realy nice view.

As described. Very nice little place for free camping. Easy access, away from highway. Quiet. A few other people but really not bad.

Couldn’t have found a better spot if I tried!! Wonderful views and refreshing lake!

une très belle place ,pour environ 7 à 8 campeurs,stationnement en gravel a côté d'un lac,tranquille, belle vue sur la montagne.

Stayed two nights, before and after Salmon Glacier. The view is beautiful. The floating picnic table makes the stop an experience. There’s also a floating platform in the middle of the lake.

The 1km gravel road is perfect with no holes. When you see the lake, park there and don’t go farther because you’ll have to back up. Only one site in the forest and one more by the rocks by the beach. The others have to park side by side across from the beach, which is ok. Not for large rigs. One pickup with trailer came, and they had to unhook and use two parking spots. No mosquitoes (compare to other spots).

Perfect for tents on the grassy beach. Narrow cars (Westfalia) can also make their way to the grass between boulders, we saw one.

Pit toilet, fire rings and picnic tables.

Beautiful. Camp right next to the lake. This is a small area. The floating picnic table is so much fun! Pit toilet. 15-20 minutes from Stewart.

Beautiful. Fun of traveling early season, we were only two vans here.
Free, fire pit, picnic tables, very quiet and cute little trails to do around the site.

Stayed for the second time! Beautiful place. Still crowded.

Beautiful place. Very crowded, but still worth it.

Arrived late at midnight so the place was most crowded- we took our change along the forest road, it was pretty dark in this sure you have your flashlight ready if you come in late;we had a calm night

Beautiful but small area . There is no loop at the end so if your a larger rig, and the last space in the back is already taken, park at the picnic area/ beach side. We just stayed for a while enjoying the lake with our kayaks. Good bird viewing and saw a bat.

We stayed two nights at this Recreation Site. The first night we slept a bit in the forest. It’s more quiet and private but a bit dark without sun. The second night we slept at the parking lot and it was very very crowded. For us a bit too crowded. It’s a nice lake with a great view to the waterfalls on the mountain.

Nice little recreational area with a few free campsites on a pretty lake. When we were here the campsite (at coordinates) just down the road from the main area had an awesome little barge with a picnic table tethered to a tree that you could push out into the lake.

Great view of mountains across lake. Nice and quiet, ok for swimming. Pack your garbage out please!

great nice informal campground, free!

Nice spot with swimmable lake and poontoon. View on the mountains, glacier and waterfall. Picnic tables are grouped and a little distance from parking area. No individual campsites. Not suitable for big rigs

There are 5 spots but 4 of them are all right next to each other. We didn't stay but it would be nice if you were alone.

we are going in this beautiful place with my motorhome , around 24 feet . many bears near this camp , and at this date it was free .

Nice recreation site at a small lake in the middle of a forest.

Very nice place to sleep in rest area before Hyder with toilet, located without waste directly at a beautiful calm lake. No traffic ...
