Mabel Lake Provincial Park is a 193-hectare location set against the backdrop of the Shuswap Highlands as they grade up into the Monashee Mountains. The park is moderately isolated, with the closest true town being Lumby, about 35 kilometers outside the park.
Wildlife is plentiful here, with plenty of painted turtles, waterfowl, and birds residing in the area. Larger animals also call this area home, and it’s common to see both deer and black bears wandering around. Boat rentals are available at the local marina, while anglers can try to hook a variety of gamefish in the lake itself.
Park facilities include a sani-station, a small store next to the marina, and an adventure playground where children can have fun. Like most other parks, Mable Lake Provincial Park also hosts a large day-use area, complete with plenty of picnic tables to help everyone enjoy their day.
Camping opportunities are spread across 3 campgrounds, Trinity, Monashee, and Taylor Creek campgrounds, each of which has relatively close access to toilets, firewood, and freshwater. Hiking is available through a self-guiding nature trail, but this park is less about hiking and much more about enjoying the scenery and diverse terrain.
