Canada Day long weekend camp trip
Jul. 2018 • Friends
Our first time camping in Merritt, BC. Lucky we went with friends who have an RV as the weather was windy, cold and we got some rain. Despite the weather, the place is very scenic, the air fresh, fishing decent and other campers very friendly. Our campsite was right off the water. Just beware that you have to bring in water as there’s only outhouses on site.

Cattle...
Sep. 2017 • Solo
Yes, there is cattle just about everywhere! Well no surprise there...
This IS cattle country, with ranches and REAL cowgirls and boys!!!
Just be smart, don't bug them, they won't bug you! Yes, the cowboys too... lol
Stay away from them and ESPECIALLY their babies, just like younger them to stay away from you and your babies...

Most bizarre place I've ever been
Aug. 2016 • Couples
Let me start off by saying that the actual area, scenery, lake, etc are absolutely stunning. Amazing lakefront camping with an incredible view, and serene peace and quiet. However, there is cattle roaming freely throughout this entire area. If these were just cows, we would probably feel pretty indifferent about it, but there are massive bulls, uncastrated which generally means they are more aggressive. Nowhere in the park on any notice board or any website or other forum on the internet does it say this. Nowhere. We entered the campsite and came face to face with the biggest bull I'd ever seen in my life. There is no way that this is safe... And I mean, people should be able to make the decision upon entering the park if that is something they want to camp with. The park hosts don't mention it either. Most people here are in campers or RVs, so I guess they don't mind, but we showed up unaware with a tent on a Friday with nowhere else to go. It's just so bizarre that there is absolutely no information whatsoever regarding the free roaming bulls in this BC park. Please beware if you plan on tenting, as one of the Bulls has wandered into campsites. We can also hear them aggressively snorting/ charging at things in the distance.

Again, beautiful lake and nice camping, but PLEASE do yourself a favor and come in a camper only!!

Good Fishing

We fished one afternoon in a wind sheltered area. I caught & released 4 fish on flies in about 1 hr. Beautiful lake and camping area.

Really nice place
Mar. 2016 • Couples
We came here in off season. There was still a bit of snow and the lake was frozen with some ice fisherman on it. There are many sites, all with good access. There are pit toilets in good shape. Every site has a fire ring and a picnic table. There is a small boat launch, rustic children's playground. Nearby is Secret Lake and Kane Lake, all within easy walking distance. Plenty of wild life and the scenery is pretty nice.

In the winter the 50+ km of cross country skiing trail is maintain by a local group and in the summer, I believe the same trails are used by ATV riders.

Great for truck campers or trailers, I am not sure a class A would be a good idea. No dumping station or water supply so come prepared for off grid.
