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

We went on a Friday afternoon and the entire place was deserted, perhaps people taking off for the weekend? There was tons of parking and we parked right near the entrance. There was washrooms at the entrance and we decided to do the Lake trail...More

This man-made lake is about 45 mins east of downtown Vancouver (depending on traffic) north of Port Moody in Anmore. Very picturesque and not overly crowded....at least not on the Thursday July afternoon that we were there. Lots of grassy picnic areas, trails, sandy beaches...More

Our friends who migrated to Vancouver took us to Buntzen Lake, which is really beautiful. The water is crystal clear and cold. Possible to fish and have sea sports. When we were there, we were not able to walk to the jetty without getting wet...More

I'm a certified nature lover, and Buntzen Lake takes the cake! It's such a majestic sight to behold--glassy lake surfaces, fresh berries, perfectly green nature trails, plus inclines and declines on the trail. It took me about 5 hours to complete the Buntzen Lake Trail...More
