We took a leisurely stroll around the lake whilst staying in Harrison Hot Springs. The views across the lake are so amazing and to be able to sit on the beach or pier for sunset was spectacular. In the distance you can make out the...More

Hicks Lake is a true gem outside the resort town of Harrison Hot Springs. If you are up for a nice walk all around the lake - go for it. Make sure you bring good shoes, since the trail can be wet and slippery or...More

Hicks Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes I have visited in BC. Warm enough in summer for swimming unlike some other lakes in the region, clear, pretty... The campground (Sasquatch provincial park) leaves something to be desired though. I would stay in Harrison...More

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.

Greta camping experience without having to drive too far. The camp was easy to find and the dirt road mentioned in other reviews was pretty good to drive on - just take it slow if you're hauling a trailer or if your vehicle is low...More

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.
