• A scenic provincial park 25km from Kamloops.
  • From the entrance road, the campground sits up on the hill, a short ways from the gate.   Trails go down to the beach or over to the bluff from the campground.
  • The paved road winds down to the beach area where there is lots of parking.
  • The beach is used by families, swimmers, fishermen, paddlers, and anyone wanting to cool off in the summer heat.
  • Trails extend all the way to the west end of Paul Lake.


Driving Directions:

  • Drive north on Highway 5 and turn right at the Paul Lake Road (at the traffic light).
  • Follow this paved road for 19km to the entrance to the park which is on the Pinantan Road.
  • At an earlier signed fork in the road, the right fork goes into the Paul Creek Valley to the end of Paul Lake and beyond to Harper Mountain (there is a trailhead at the end of the lake too).
  • Most people drive down to the beach and park there to hike the trails.
  • The park gate is closed in winter.
