Overview

Facilities: Public beach, day-use picnic area, flush toilets, change house. Location: Off Hwy 3, in the town of Christina Lake. Christina Lake has a reputation of being one of the warmest lakes in all of Canada and is very popular with families. With its 300 metres of fine sandy beach, people flock to this swimming destination in the summer months. There is no overnight camping at this location. The closest provincial park campground with overnight accommodation is Gladstone (Texas Creek campground), 10 km east of Christina Lake. Nearby provincial campgrounds that should be able to accommodate last-minute campers in July and August include Boundary Creek, Jewel Lake, and Nancy Greene.

I love this place for too many reasons to list! The water is warm and crystal clear, the beach is usually not overcrowded, the sand is kept clean and is perfect for building sand castles, sunbathing, or digging deep holes. My kids could spend endless...More

First visit and glad we stopped in. Large beach with many picnic tables nearby, water is warm and shallow for a good distance out. Lots of parking and located right smack in the middle of the residential area. We would return.

What a great park. I wonder if it is newly renovated. Even the pit toilets are flushing, with sink and mirrors. Free hot showers, clean camping pads, with plenty of privacy. Steep trail down to the water, excellent for summer time swims. Camp hosts were...More
