About Sasquatch

Sasquatch Provincial Park is located off Highway 7, approximately 6 kilometers north of Harrison Hot Springs.

Sasquatch Provincial Park is a great family destination. The park includes two lakes: Hicks Lake and Deer Lake. Activities include swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and other kinds of boating. There are three campgrounds in the park: Lakeside, Bench and Hick’s Lake.  Lakeside Campground provides easy access to Deer Lake and features a playground and large lawn area right at the lakeshore. There is a boat launch at Deer Lake for small vessels. Hicks Lake Campground is located right on Hicks Lake. There is a volleyball net and grass area beside the lake. Hicks Lake also has a boat launch for small vessels.  Please see BC Parks website for horsepower restrictions on the lakes.
