The lake is actually a reservoir created with the construction of the Mica Dam. Water levels in the lake can fluctuate drastically so its a good idea to call ahead to our office or the Visitor Information center if you are planning your first trip to the area. Typically, good boat access to the area begins in mid June.
The lake has three designated campgrounds, Yellowjacket (18km) Griffin (19.5km) and Horse (20.5km) on the East access road and a Marina is located at the 21km marker with a good boat launch, limited camp spots and boat storage available. For more details on these campgrounds, please go to www.sitesandtrailsbc.ca or contact the Visitor Information Center at 250-566-9893.
