Long Description:
Charlie Lake Provincial Park

This BC Provincial Park borders the southwestern shore of Charlie Lake. The lake itself is only 23 feet deep and about 9.5 miles long. Charlie Lake Provincial Park is 176 hectares and is in the rolling landscape of the Interior Plains. Charlie Lake is in Peace Country and is a small community with less than 2,000 residents.


Charlie Lake Provincial Park was established May 20, 1964. The park offers camping and a day use area. Within the park you can wander the network of trails, and offers activities such as: swimming, sailing (Canoes, kayaks and non-motorize crafts), fishing, cycling (designated roads and trails within the park).

Also is a day-use picnic area which includes a playground, large grass fields, picnic shelter, horseshoe pits, parking spaces for 40 vehicles and a boat launch.

The park is open to public access from May 10, 2021 – Sept. 12, 2021.
During the off season the park is accessible, but may not offer full services such as water, security etc. and the gate is closed.

Conservation: Aspen is the dominant forest cover mixed with stands of birch, alder, lodgepole pine and spruce, and an understudy consisting mainly of Saskatoon berry bushes, soopolalie, flat-top spirea, waxberry and squashberry. Flowers, trees and shrubs are part of the park’s natural heritage.

Wildlife, all though not prevalent in the park there are large mammals such as moose, White-tailed deer, Mule deer and Black bear are fairly common throughout the area. Squirrels, chipmunks, beaver, Snowshoe hares and muskrat are more likely to be seen.

Birds of the open woodlands are abundant in the summer with species like the Northern Oriole, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Ovenbird, American Redstart and White-throated sparrow much in evidence. Waterfowl are frequent visitors to the lake and shoreline and a walk through the park will often rouse a Sharp-tailed or Ruffed grouse.
