Beautiful lake with some lovely secluded beaches that are reachable with canoes that you can rent at the lake. Warm enough to swim in, and we can't wait to go back.

We had a awesome time, We went swimming and boating for the day and then went a nice long walk to finish it off before we headed back home.

Hiked our way round the entire lake, nice and easy with some great views. Some nice spots that are perfect for getting your feet wet or having a quick swim.

Hick's Lake is a short drive from Harrison Hot Springs. The lake is very pretty, and the fishing can be good (it was horrible when we were there, so I will defer to others on this).

I loved this lake. Great walk around the edge, was an easy hike for the kids and sections of it even had some technical broken wood work. Quite amazing and lots for the kids to learn

I know why I often come to Harrison and other lakes above. Especially Hicks Lake. Its calm serenity atmosphere gives us revitalizing our energy level...hmm good workout without sweat

Hicks lake has a very nice view and very family friendly place as there is a playground closed to it. Just do not swim in the area

Hicks lake has clean water, it's a quiet family orientated spot that has more adults and kids being responsible and having clean fun. Way better than cultus.
