This was a fun place to drive to. You must access this place via a well maintained dirt road. Once you get to the parking lot, it’s a nice 1/4 mile hike down hill to the lake beach. My kids went in for a swim....More

We stayed in Invermere, and were able to enjoy the views of the Columbia river valley every day, from various viewpoints and during different times of the day. Very beautiful landscape, with interesting towns along the way. Any photo taken here was excellent!

Other reviews said popular trail, easy, fun. It was hard to find...how a provincial park can have so many pot holes blows my mind...the trail was bumpy, not much scenery...I wouldn't do it again!
