BC Parks – Champion Lakes Provincial Park, British Columbia

We just camped at Champion Lakes this weekend. What a beautiful spot…

The campsites are well separated from one another, by well separated I mean there was at least 60 feet of dense trees between our campsite and the next, which meant we could talk in normal voices well into the night. We really didn’t hear anyone else at all once we were in our campsite.

The two swimming beaches at Champion Lakes are amazing. There’s lots of sand, sun, and shade…and the water is like bathwater. We spent hours floating and swimming in the lake every day and that’s where I’d be right now given the opportunity.

The weather over the weekend saw highs in the mid 40’s (Celsius) and lows between 10-15 (Celsius), which meant we had great swimming weather during the day and nice cool nights for sleeping.

The town of Fruitvale is a 15-minute drive from the campsite so we were able to get ice and cold beer daily.

The campground has water faucets and flush toilets throughout. There aren’t any showers but a swim in the lake with a little biodegradable soap takes care of your shower needs.
