We were really happy and relaxed camping there, we had the first spot on the left when you come through the gate and we parked our 2 units so our awnings met and when it started to rain we had a nice dry place to sit and visit.

Quesnel Lake is the deepest fjord lake in the world, and is well worth visiting for that reason. But it's got a lot of things going on in the area around it that make visiting worthwhile if you're in the area.

This place is a bit off the beaten path which is why it's such a hidden gem. Very few people come here. The campground is nice but a bit small for big units. There is no cell service so if you have health issues, stay away. The one thing we did find was it was a bit spooky. Some of... More

Quesnel lake is all of the above. Our annual fishing trip is a highlight of early summer. Trout, long days on the water, eagles, bears. Gourmet dinners late in the evening. A few or more beers. No cell phones no tv and especially no wives allowed.

We go every year as we ar from Quesnel. One of the most beautiful places to camp in the area, huge mountains with snow on top, Islands and beaches with white sand, and the water wasn;t too cold.

If you're looking to go for a swim while in Quesnel try the provincial park at Ten Mile Lake. Lots of great fishing, ask at Frank's for some great tips.
