Alice Lake Squamish Reviews
Fun car camping 1 hour outside Vancouver Feb 21, 2012
Just 1km down the Alice Lake Rd. turn off is Alice Lake Provincial Park Campground. There are about 108 sites here all accessible by car. It is open from the middle of March to the end of October. We have stayed there, midweek, at beginning of may and at the end of September. We had the park all to our selves in May and shared it with 1 other couple in September. When staying in July and Aug it is HIGHLY recommended to make reservations as the park will be full. There are 8 nice sites in the middle that you have to park your car a little was away from your site (maybe 50 m). They are a little more secluded and are normally filled with younger couples.
Each site has a nice cast iron fire ring with a grill for the fire and a picnic table. There are 2 free shower complexes and many out houses around the park.
There is a nice beach on the small Alice Lake that is perfect for sun bathing or throwing the footie around. Across the road from the park is a nice trail that leads around 4 smaller lakes or ponds (some stocked with fish, although I've never had any luck) that takes a couple of hours at a stroll.
There is also the DeBeck's Hill Trail that is approximately 3 km round trip. As you hike up the hill you will come across an old steam donkey once used for yarding logs. At the top of DeBeck's Hill you will find a spectacular view of the ice-capped Tantalus Range to the west and Mount Garibaldi to the east. The Squamish River also winds its way down the valley floor.
