Swan Lake Park

Swan Lake Provincial Park offers visitors exceptional camping and outdoor recreation experiences. With a campground, sandy beach, baseball diamond and playground area, visitors are sure to enjoy their time. Swan Lake is popular with local anglers. Sport fish include walleye, northern pike, yellow perch and burbot.

Established in 1918, it has the distinction of being British Columbia's third oldest park and is representative of the Kiskatinaw Plateau ecosystem.

Along the lake, look for wildlife as Swan Lake provides important habitat for a wide range of migrating and nesting waterfowl. This includes common loons, western grebes, trumpeter swans, American widgeons, sandpipers, buffleheads, coots, gulls, blackbirds, killdeer, hooded mergansers, swallows, lesser scaups and goldeneyes, just to name a few.

The occasional moose and white tail or mule deer may pass through the park and black bears frequent the area. Muskrat and beaver can be seen around the lakeshore and the Tupper River, which drains into the lake through the park.
