    Lakelse Lake Provincial park

    Located about 15 km south of Terrace on Highway 37, this beautiful area is surrounded by the Kitimat Mountain Range.  Sandy beaches, swimming, and water sports are some of the attractions this park has to offer. A swimming area is roped off at both Furlong Bay and the Lakelse Picnic Site. The word “Lakelse” comes from the Tsimshian language meaning “fresh water mussel”, for the mollusk that is found on the bottom of both Lakelse Lake and Lakelse River.  All BC Provincial Parks are open from mid May to late August.

    Gruchy's beach

    A beautiful and easy 1 km trail takes you to a sandy beach on Lakelse Lake as it follows Williams Creek through old growth forest. This is a popular place to enjoy the water and wildlife. During late summer, take the very short Sockeye Viewing Trail from the parking area upstream and across the highway bridge where a platform has been built for viewing spawning sockeye salmon watch the brilliant red sockeye complete their life cycle from this safe creek side vantage point.
