Location and Maps
Nature and Culture
- Wildlife – Western Toads
Please be aware that, in spring at Ross Lake, toads migrate for breeding activity. These mass migrations leave toads vulnerable to road-mortality and create barriers to movement. As such, BC Parks requests that those using the day-use area be aware of potential toad movements and not drive over toads while traversing road ways. Please view links below for information:
