Whiteswan Lake Park

Whiteswan Lake Park

Description

Whiteswan Lake's spectacular mountain views are accented by lakeside camping. The park features superb trophy quality fishing for rainbow trout.

This provincial park is located off Highway #93/95, just east of Canal Flats. The five campgrounds begin at kilometre 21 (13 mi). Lakeside hikes, swimming, fishing, waterfalls and plenty of room to roam are found here in this scenic wilderness park.

To ensure a quiet and relaxing experience, there is no towing allowed on the lake. Winter ice-fishing is very popular. Alces Lake, also within the boundaries of this 1,994 hectare park, allows fly-fishing only.

Lussier Hot Springs, an undeveloped mineral spring is located near the park's western boundary. The park offers vehicle accessible campsites on a first-come, first-served basis - campsite reservations are not accepted.

There are 114 campsites located at five campgrounds:
Alces Lake
(28 campsites) at km 21 offers sunny lakefront campsites; Packrat Point (16 campsites) at km 24 and Inlet Creek (16 campsites) at km 28 are located on the east side of the road across from Whiteswan Lake; White River (17 campsites) located at the northeastern entrance of the park off White River Forest Road; and, Home Basin (37 campsites) located at the northwestern corner of Whiteswan Lake accessed by the Moscow Creek Forest Road and offers some lakefront campsites.

Wilderness, backcountry or walk-in camping is allowed at Cave Creek located on the north shore of Whiteswan Lake. Facilities include 2 pit toilets, 3 picnic tables and one fire ring. The Park is open year-round unless inaccessible due to weather conditions, especially during the off-season and Home Basin & White River campgrounds are open year round, while Alces, Packrat Point and Inlet Creek campgrounds are open from May to September.
