Only accessible from forestry roads but worth it. Road is fairly well maintained. The sites are very large and quite private, some with direct lake access but all have a view. Really nice, quiet spot.

One of the few lakes I can actually comfortably swim in. Sandy beach, with campground nearby. I've mainly used it for day use though. Large parking lot with short walk to get to beach.

If you don't mind logging roads (and hey, you're camping), this is a perfect little campground. The sites are big and well-groomed, and the pit toilets are the cleanest we've seen anywhere in BC. The park attendants were doing a great job of keeping things...More

It is a long drive but a very peaceful spot for hiking. Me and my son went for a hike in the trails and for ~5Km we only ran into a single family. We love the peace and quiet of nature!

I don't camp at provincial sites winter or summer.....too many " un-official " places out here so I'm unable to answer..I occasionally use some official sites on a day trip basis when no one else is around

It depends on your comfort level with logging roads (which is what you travel on to get to Morton). They can get muddy and narrow at times with the weather and yes, there are some tight spots and sharp turns. We managed... More
