March 1, 2018: Repairs and upgrades to Inland Lake Trail
Please be advised that BC Parks will be conducting trail repairs and upgrades to the Inland Lake Trail from now until the end of March 2018. This may result in closures of the trail or segments of the trail during these works. Please observe and obey these closures as they occur. Sorry for the inconvenience during this time.
About This ParkPrior to 1997, this park was a Forest Service Recreation area. The area was established as a provincial park in 1997. Many years ago, the Model Community Society constructed a 13 km wheelchair accessible trail around Inland Lake.
There are drive-in and walk-in campsites available at this park, as well as opportunities for swimming, cycling, fishing, canoeing and boating (10hp).
The Model Community Project for People with Disabilities have led a two year effort to drastically improve the trail and facilities at Inland Lake Provincial Park. The “Model Community” work in partnership with BC Parks under a Shared Stewardship Agreement. They have successfully raised over 250K of funds to support the park improvement. BC Parks wishes to publically thank the Model Community for their great effort and dedication.
