Lakeside Fishing Resorts

Throughout the region, you’ll find a plethora of riverside and lakeside camping and RV resorts where you can wake up with the birds and cast a line into crystal clear waters. Many resorts even offer gear rentals and guided fishing excursions to ensure you find the best place to catch the big one.

However, these lakefront retreats aren’t just about fishing! Paddleboard, canoe or kayak the placid waters, go for a swim, hike or bike the trails, or consider a road trip to discover hidden lakes nearby. Take a few sandwiches and a blanket for a lakeside picnic while taking in the scenery and enjoying the fresh air.

Fortunately, a wide majority of camping locations throughout the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast are located on or near bodies of water for fishing enthusiasts, but particularly along BC’s Fishing Highway 24, in the Land of Hidden Waters!

Backcountry Camping

Head into the wilderness where you can hike boreal forests, traverse wildflower-strewn alpine meadows, climb mountain peaks and discover glacier-fed lakes where few have trekked. Access by foot, mountain bike, horseback, or heli/floatplane to find wild wonders that will etch into your memory. Guided backcountry camping excursions are highly recommended as they will pair you with a knowledgeable guide to ensure you find the best camping spot and scenic vistas while learning all about the land, ecology and wildlife you experience during your journey.

No Tent/RV? No Problem!

If you enjoy camping but don’t have the equipment, not to worry! A selection of accommodation providers throughout the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast have created cozy setups for you to call home away from home.

Firvale Wilderness Camp’s geodesic glamping domes provide guests with a stylishly designed and well-equipped place to stay in the heart of nature, complete with massive bay windows to take in stunning glacier and mountain views.

Bear Camp, in addition to being a fantastic place to get away from it all and view wildlife in their natural habitat, offers a selection of luxury, safari tents with King or double beds and all the amenities you need to enjoy a stay in the wilderness.

Those looking for a rustic retreat and a chance to learn about British Columbia’s history are encouraged to book the covered wagon at Historic Hat Creek Ranch to experience a true night under the stars just like early explorers and settlers. The wagon contains 4 single bunks and includes with bedding and towels, with an indoor sitting area and closet space for clothes and luggage. There is no power or water inside the wagon – just like in the olden times!

Responsible Camping & RV Touring

Regardless of where your camping or RV adventure takes you, we encourage respectful, responsible travel for the enjoyment of both your group, as well as those who camp after you have returned home. A few important tips include:

  • When backcountry camping always pack out what you bring in.
  • Please respect fire bans when in effect.
  • Regardless of where your campsite is, putting away is a good practice to deter wildlife.
  • Ensure you dump black/grey water and garbage at approved stations.
  • Leave your campsite in the same condition you found it.
  • Keep dogs on leash, unless in an approved off-leash area.

If you prefer setting up your tent or RV in a provincial park to be close to some natural wonders, then there are plenty to choose from, but regardless of your choice we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment!
