Know Before You Go
Due to popularity and size of the campground, BC Parks has implemented a maximum stay policy of 7 nights in the peak season in this park (June 15 to Labour Day inclusive). Reservations are made through BC Parks’ Discover Camping Reservation System.
All campsite reservations must be made through Discover Camping. When reservations are not available all campsites function as first-come, first-served.
Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia. For more information on mountain biking in the park and the surrounding area, check the Fernie Mountain Bike Club.
Lizard Creek provides limited fishing opportunity. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
Pets on Leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. 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
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.
Cold water taps are located throughout the park. Taps are shut off during the off-season.
