Set on 728 hectares of mixed beach area and established forest, Paul Lake Provincial Park is a family-oriented destination that offers easy access to tourist attractions in the area. Wildlife viewing opportunities include mule deer and coyotes, while bird-watchers may spot falcons, bald eagles, and white-throated swifts.
This park has a definite beach focus because most of the protected woodland areas were added long after regulators set the original boundaries of the park. There are about 400 meters of sandy beach areas, as well as trout fishing in the lake itself. Seven kilometers of hiking trails cross the area, including a gentle trail to the top of the 900-meter Gibraltar Rock.
Facilities include cold water taps during the regular season, a large picnic area, horseshoe pits, and an adventure playground for children. Small campfires are allowed, but this camp is in a high-risk area for forest fires, so regulators strongly encourage using stoves and avoiding open fires at any location in the park.
Campsites include 90 sites, three of which are doubles. On-site amenities are strictly limited, but this is a minor concern because the park is just a few minutes away from the Pinantan Country Store, which services the area and offers things like telephone access.
