Recreational Values

Lakelse Lake has long been recognized as a unique recreational gem for local residents and tourists alike.

With the recent addition of the Lakelse Wetlands Park at the south end of the lake, B.C. Parks have become custodians of about 25% of the shoreline. Park visitors to the picnic site, swimming beach, campground, and Gruchy’s beach are estimated to amount to around 200,000 annually.
