Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park is one of Canada’s larger camping parks, covering an impressive 9.258 hectares. Old-growth forests cover the slopes, while alpine and subalpine ridges hold snow throughout most of the year. Chilliwack Lake itself permits motorboating, kayaking, and many other aquatic activities.
Hiking is a major feature of this area, with three main trails branching off from a shared trailhead at the Post Creek Parking Lot. Notably, the Trans Canada Trail also passes through this park, providing additional hiking opportunities for guests. Water Skiing and windsurfing are also possible here, with the latter benefiting from strong winds on most afternoons.
Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park has a single wide boat launch that works best for vessels of 20 feet or less. Larger vessels may have trouble using the boat launch. The boat launch may be submerged at particularly high tides, or drop low enough to expose rocks, so make sure to examine the area carefully if you want to use it.
Camping opportunities include 146 sites across five loops in the park. Three of these areas are primarily by reservation, while two more loops are exclusively first-come, first-serve. RV limit length is standard across all loops at 32 feet (10 meters), and amenities generally include picnic tables, restrooms, fire grills, and sometimes water taps.
