Harrison Lake, BC

* * * *  | 4 stars out of 5:  1 demerit point for difficult road access RR = 10

Bear Creek has both reservable and first come, first serve sites

$18/night, cash only

If you are willing to weather the rough road to get there, Bear Creek is well worth the trip. There are no services to any of the sites (water, power, or sewage) and there is no garbage collection so you must carry out everything you carry in carry in, but the campground is a little piece of heaven on the shores of Harrison Lake. I can definitely see us visiting again and highly recommend it for its proximity to water, relatively private campsites, and peaceful surroundings.

From Vancouver, take Highway #1 or #7 to Harrison Hot Springs. When you enter Harrison, turn right at the stoplight, Rockwell Drive. Follow Rockwell Drive north along Harrison Lake until you get to a fork in the road. Go left onto the Harrison East Forest Service Road and drive to the 15 km marker,  turn left into the campground. (If you turn right at the fork, you enter Sasquatch Provincial Park where you can also find several campgrounds.)
