Summit Lake Park

The Nakusp Range of the Selkirk Mountains rise 500 metres (1,650 ft) above the lake, providing a magnificent backdrop on which mountain goats can often be viewed on the rocky outcroppings.

The day-use/picnic parking lot is a short walk to the lake. Here you will find a 100 metres long, shale/pebble type beach. At the edge of the forest, approximately 10 metres from the shoreline, on a small grassy area are 6 tables. A pit toilet and water tap is nearby. There are no fire pits or barbeque stands. In the campground by campsite #1 is a grassy field with an open picnic shelter containing a wood stove. Campers and picnickers use both.


The small park and campground is located on a point of land at the south-west end of Summit Lake. The campground is circular, with a gravel, one way traffic road and contains 35 vehicle accessible sites / 23 campsites are reservable. Seven of the sites are doubles. There are no pull through sites, tent pads or tent sites. The sites are shady and small, in an intimate setting along the lake front or with in the cedar hemlock forest. Extra vehicles can be parked in the day-use parking lot located near the park entrance.
