“Great little lake for a swim and a picnic”

Spider Lake Provincial Park
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 October 2016

This is a nice spot for a picnic, swimming, and kayaking, but it can be busy on the weekends during the summer, so best to get there early. The lake is on the smaller size but there is quite a bit of beach area. There are some trails to walk around the edge of the lake in parts. Would be great if the trails could be expanded but I believe there are some private homes which are lakefront so that probably won't be possible.

What a great little lake for fresh water swimming. My friend and I swam out and across and around three little islands. The water is clean and we had a minnow spa resting on a shoal watching the wee fish swim around us. Perfect day for a swim. The beach we sat on is not the true beach area but no one cared as we got the late afternoon sun. Not much privacy either. I Want to go back and kayak the lake.

Beautiful beaches, very peaceful, the water look very clean and clear, the forest is wonderful. Bring a bathing suit, and towel, a great area for picnic.
