The perfect launch point for all your weekend adventures. On-site is a newly built compostable outhouse. As well as a seasonal creek that runs through it. Enjoy the beauty of Pemberton valley and all the neighbouring lakes, while having a nice cool site to come back to at the end of the day.

We had a great weekend at Shady Birken. Other than arriving later than planned (so we were setting up in the dark) the site was well laid out and organized. The composting toilet and outhouse structure were clean and well maintained. Thanks Melissa for the detail instructions or we never would have found it.

Photo of lake and picnic table is very deceiving bit on property. Picnic table is also basically unusable.

Was good for a quick over night stop to make sure you have a spot. But not much else.

We did not stay there, it was swarming with mosquitos, there is a dilapidated house next door that looks like something out of a horror movie, there was no level ground to pitch a tent, it was not “on the lake” and the picnic table looks like it has been there for a hundred years.

I'm sorry you did not enjoy the site. I would have been open for you to connect me if there was an issue. As the add states, it is a 5 minute walk down the road to the gates lake, and add also says there isn't a picnic table on site. Sorry for any inconveniences this caused you
