Having lived for more than twelve years in Anmore, Buntzen Lake was only moments away and I have had the privilege to visit this treasure at most times of the day and almost every day of the year. Whether your visit is for nature, beach...More

The proximity to the city results in a rather boisterous atmosphere at this lake. BC Hydro manages this recreation area & they are quite strict in their opening / closing policies. There is a large parking area, but it fills up quickly. The South beach...More
