Lac Le Jeune Provincial Park
- Address: BC
Nestled among an open stand of spruce, fir and regenerating young forest, Lac Le Jeune Park appeals to campers and anglers seeking an easily-accessible getaway spot. The park offers a diverse assortment of recreational activities including swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, biking, and nature appreciation. The campground serves as a base for recreational use at both Stake and Walloper Lakes. The park sees high use during the summer season. During the winter the area is used for cross-country skiing with no vehicle access.
There are 144 vehicle accessible sites and 85 of which are reservable. To make reservations, visit discovercamping.ca. Reservations must be made at least 48 hours in advance.
Take the Lac Le Jeune Exit off Hwy #5 (the Coquihalla) at 37 km south of Kamloops/47 km north of Merritt. There is also 26 km of paved access off the Hwy #1 at Kamloops. Due to its elevation, at 1,280 metres, the weather is cooler, a welcome relief from the desert conditions of the valleys to north and south.
