Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.

Facilities Available at this Park
Meziadin Lake Park is an excellent location for boating offering beautiful views of the surrounding landscape. A gravel, moderate grade boat launch is available to visitors. It is singlewide and trailers must be parked at their campsite. Boats can be tied to the dock but there is limited space.
While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
A hand water pump is available and it is located adjacent to the information shelter. There are no hose hookups for campers/trailers.
18 sites have electricity available 30 amp service. Please note campers occupying sites with electricity will pay an extra $5.00/night (whether the power is in use or not).
