Chilliwack Lake


May 24, 2018: Park and campground open for the season; construction is ongoing
Campground expansion and upgrades are ongoing. Please avoid worksites and closure areas, and watch for contractor vehicles on the road. We appreciate your patience! During this period of construction, visitors may be subjected to some minor construction noise (mid-week, daytime hours).
Efforts are underway to build a new 33 site campground loop at Chilliwack Lake. The loop will offer amazing views to the West and good exposure to breezes and sunlight. Although the sites are visible in the Discover Camping system, they are not available for use at this time and there is no set opening date. We will update this webpage and the Discover Camping system once construction has been completed and the sites are available for use.


Boating Information: The water level can get very high in the lake during spring run-off, and the beach and boat launch are frequently underwater. The lake is extremely cold and life jackets are an absolute necessity in any watercraft. The boat launch is small and designed for boats of less than 20’ in length.

ATVs: Due to the ecological sensitivity of the park, ATV’s, Snowmobiles and other similar motorized vehicles are not permitted

Visitor Services

Most sites at Chilliwack Lake are reservable and reservations can be made through the Discover Camping website. This location offers an RV trailer for rent. This RV, with full hookups, is available for rental from May to October. The RV has a small kitchen with refrigeration, all cooking utensils, dishware and an outdoor BBQ.  For information on pricing and availability see Cabins/RV Rentals.

Chilliwack Lake is now renting propane campfires. These campfires can be used during fire bans and easily hook-up to propane barbeque tanks. If you need to exchange your BBQ tank or buy a new one, you can do it at the gatehouse in the park.

Firewood and ice are available in the park.

 About Chilliwack Lake

Chilliwack Lake is located 150km east of Vancouver off of Highway 1.

Chilliwack Lake is an ideal spot for canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, swimming, fishing and hiking. A wide sandy beach has stunning views on all sides as the ramrod-straight fir forest rises to ice fields and scissor-cut peaks. The park is great for families with a playground and volleyball net located in the day-use area.

Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park is a pristine escape from city life that is characterised by a valley-bottom lake surrounded by old growth forests and bountiful sub-alpine and alpine ridges to explore. Forty kilometers of trails provide opportunities for hiking, bird and wildlife viewing, and nature appreciation.

For more information about Chilliwack Lake please visit the BC Parks website.
