Alice Lake is a beautiful park in Squamish halfway between Vancouver and Whistler with excellent camping facilities, walking trails and sandy beach.
Alice Lake in Squamish
Alice Lake offers excellent overnight campground facilities with hot showers and flush toilets, a walking trail around the lake, sandy beach, and mountain bike trails nearby including a great children’s bike park close to the beach.
This is one of our top-rated places for camping. The only drawback is that after a period of heavy rains the lake floor can sometimes get muddy. Other than that, this is an excellent place to bring the family (both for the day and the entire weekend).
Tips and Advice
Below are some tips and suggestions to help you make the most out of your visit to Alice Lake Provincial Park.
TIP #1: This is a great lake for kayaking and canoeing, so bring your boat if you can (as well as your fishing rod). The beach isn’t far from the parking lot, so the location is convenient. In the summer, at least on the weekends, canoes are often available for rent.
TIP #2: Don’t forget to bring bikes for your kids. The free bike park and adjacent playground are excellent for little people.
TIP #3: Alice Lake is an especially popular place in the summer. If going on a hot sunny day in July or August, plan to arrive early so you don’t have to fight for parking. And if you hope to camp on a weekend, there’s a good chance you’ll need to book your spot two or three months in advance.
