Camp at Jones Lake

Jones Lake, BC - Search Nearby - Added by Rachel Bertsch (Kristensen)

Enjoy beautiful lakefront camping with now crowds.

Southwest of Hope and just east of Chilliwack, Jones Lake is a recreation site at a reservoir lake in the coastal mountain range, managed by BC Hydro. Set below granite mountain peaks and surrounded by a dense forest (that is unfortunately being logged), this lake isn't pristine, but it sure is pretty. There is a total of 55 campgrounds in 3 campgrounds around the lake with pit toilets and room for parking. Remember that these spots don't have potable water, so be sure to bring your own.

From Chilliwack, follow Hwy 1 east for 32km (19.8 mi) until you reach Junction 153 / Jones Lake Forestry Road. Follow the 4WD road as it climbs up a 11km (6.8 mi) dirt road over the Fraser Valley. You can make this trip without a 4WD car, but it is a rough road. Once there, grab a camp spot at either the rec sites or on the beach between the giant tree stumps.

Note that BC Hydro claims this is a 'alcohol free zone', but I'm not sure how much this is enforced. Also, don't drink the water from the lake.
