Camp at Alces Lake in Whiteswan Provincial Park

Rate this Adventure Canada Alces Lake Campground

Added by

Alces Lake offers 28 sites with 115 in the surrounding park. Alces offers warm swimming/fishing friendly lake (no powered boats - they go to Whiteswan lake). This is the closest campground to Lussier Hot Springs.

The park offers vehicle accessible campsites on a first-come, first-served basis. There are 114 campsites located at five campgrounds. Alces lake is the closest to the Lussier hot springs and the first campsite in the park. With sunny lakeside sites it is frequently the busiest. At $23/night with pit toilets and elevated gravel sites it fits the BC park standard. Firewood $5 from the attendant.

Alces lake is a small lake making it often the warmest come June/July. A small beach located down a small trail from the campsite is a great place to meet your neighbours. A nice trail leaves from the beach and edges the Northern side of the lake and along Whiteswan lake to the other campground area.

Camp here for the Lussier hot springs. Also accesses the Top of the World Provincial Park.
