Introduction

Sasquatch Provincial Park is a charming 3,000-acre park located north of Harrison Hot Springs in the Coast Region of British Columbia, Canada. Surrounded by a series of pocket lakes, birch forest, and mountain slopes, the park is a popular spot for outdoor recreation such as picnicking, wildlife watching, hiking, biking, and camping.

The park is home to three large campgrounds and a group campsite. The campgrounds are all big rig friendly but offer no hookups for RVs. With a focus on getting back to basics, the real draw card of this park is its tranquil natural setting. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as beavers, tailed frogs, black petaltail dragonflies, and mountain goat, while birders can spot bald eagles, woodpeckers, warblers, and vireos in the trees, marshland and along the lake shore. Also, the park is reputed to be the home of Sasquatch, or Bigfoot, so keep an eye out!

With beautiful lakes and a small pond, much of the activity at Sasquatch Provincial Park is water-based. Hicks Lake is incredibly scenic and offers an area for swimming, fishing, canoeing, and small boating while Deer Lake caters to boats with electric motors only. Head to Trouts Lake for a quieter day out with opportunities for fishing and non-motorized boating, or you can pack a picnic and hang out at the nearby Green Point day-use area overlooking Harrison Lake. With a boat launch area, swimming area and picnic spot, it’s a great way to spend a sunny day.

Driving

Sasquatch Provincial Park is located off Highway 7, six kilometers from Harrison Hot Springs in British Columbia, Canada. Follow the road signs through the hot springs and Green Point until you reach the entrance of the park.

The road leading to the campgrounds is about a 3.5-mile (6 km) long unpaved washboard road. Drive slowly and keep an eye out for potholes. Take care when pulling into your campsite as the trees can make it difficult and there may be low-hanging branches.

Once you’ve set up your RV camp, you can get around by hiking or biking or by launching your boat and exploring one of the park’s many lakes. Parking is available at the Green Point day-use area, Trout Lake, and within the campgrounds for those staying overnight.
