Whitewood Lake is a very remote recreation lake destination deep in the back country forests located north of Kamloops, British Columbia Canada. The lake is a popular wilderness destination for fishing, camping, canoeing and mountain biking.
There is a recreation wilderness campsite on the lake. It is a no frills campground. Which means you pack out what you pack in. Leave no footprint as wilderness campsites depend on self maintenance. The 14 wilderness campsites vary. Some campsites face the lake and while others hide in the trees.
The big draw of Whitewood Lake is the fishing and canoeing. The 15 hectare lake is a popular spot for fly fishing and trolling for rainbow trout. A car top boat launch is available in the campground which provides access to the lake.
This Kamloops, BC campground includes pit toilets, a few fire rings and a few picnic tables. It operates on a first come first serve basis. The drive along the gravel roads to the lake explores canyons and travels over rivers. It s a very scenic drive and is a big part of the adventure. Although, be aware the lake campground is located next to a gravel road which is busy at times with large logging trucks.
From the campground there is a series of unmarked trails heading into the trees. ATVs, horseback riders and mountain bikers explore these trails and gravel roads located around Whitewood Lake.
