Sheltered natural area that was warmer than the village. Great for picnics. Large rocky ledge for sunbathing. Clean. Several trails. Navigable wide well-graded potholed road that my low-chassis car handled fine. The drive there is along the lake with a view of the village. Waterfalls...More

Take a short drive from Harrison Lake to this gorgeous glacier fed lake. You will breathe in the scenery and relax immediately. Take the hike around the lake or simply sit and enjoy the serenity.

Nice lake for canoeing, kayaking and other general water sports. Water is a bit warmer than Harrison Lake. It is a bit of a bumpy drive down dirt road past Sasquatch Park, but worth it once you get there.

Nice, gentle 6k of trail. I'd agree with other reviewers who said that the road portion of the hike (leading from group camp site-- if I'm not mistaken the eastern half of the lake) not being too exciting. Still, well enough maintained. The foot bridges...More

Hicks Lake Campground is a little slice of heaven. The space lends itself to relaxation and solitude. It would be even more perfect if the 10hp max on boat motors was reduce to electric only.

Great sites - many have uphill driveways, but flatten out once you back in. The lake is nice and warm(ish) once you get in! Watch for mice - we bought dryer sheets and moth balls placed them anywhere the trailer touched the ground (jacks, tires,...More
