Whiteswan Lake’s spectacular mountain views are accented by lakeside camping. The park features superb trophy quality fishing for rainbow trout. 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.
Lakeside hikes, swimming, fishing, waterfalls and plenty of room to roam are found here in this scenic wilderness park.
