The best camping near Burns Lake Provincial Park guide

Overview

About

On the south shore of Burns Lake, this small, 65-hectare peninsula is unfinished but prime for time outdoors with a community-maintained, 8-kilometre loop trail and a lakefront popular for swimming. The province’s smallest provincial park, Deadman’s Island, is just two kilometres from the Burns Lake boat launch, and other lake activities include kayaking and canoeing, birdwatching, picnicking, and swimming. Several hike-in campsites are available with tent pads, picnic tables, fire rings, pit toilets, and a few covered shelters. Burns Lake lies within the territories of the Burns Lake Band, the Wet’suwet’en and the Carrier-Sekani Tribal Council. 

When to go

From May to September the lake is popular for outdoor recreation. In winter, once the lake has fully frozen, skating, snowshoeing and snowmobiling become possibilities.

Know before you go

  • The park has no user fees or maintained road access.
  • The nearest town, Burns Lake, is five kilometres from the park.
  • Bring your own drinking water, as potable water is not available.
  • The weather can be changeable, and overnight freezes are possible well into May.
  • Additional camping options can be found 10 kilometres away at Kager Lake Recreation Area.
