This set of photos is from camping on Harrison Lake. The Bear Creek Forestry Campsite is a great location to camp just outside of Vancouver. Camping right on the lake there are around 40 sites available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you want a great camp site about 2.5hrs from downtown Vancouver then this is a great option.
And, here are the photos…
Vancouver Island is one place that seems really far away but really isn’t such a bad trek for the reward. Heading up through Nanaimo then over to Cowichan Lake there are several forestry campsites that are available right on the water. This particular site was called Maple Grove where there are some 60 sites available. For a mere $17 per night you have a lakefront resort at your fingertips. I would definitely recommend this as a BC camping destination.
Buntzen lake is located in Port Moody BC. It is a great summer retreat away from the city without really going all that far. There is a hike around the lake that is about 8km long and is not too challenging. There is a beach half way around as well that is generally much quieter than the one closer to the park entrance.
The hike is a great way to spend a sunny day and taking a dip in the lake is very refreshing.
