Mt. McCrae has a BC forestry campsite located high up in the alpine. The best part is that you drive most of the way up the mountain, so it is perfect for those just beginning to backpack.
After reaching the 'end of the road' a nice short hike (couple of hours) finds you in paradise. One large glacial lake, and a couple of smaller ones can be found. There are a couple of tent pads with great views, and fire rings as well. And the outhouse (complete with venting, and a nice high platform with steps - to allow access in summer and winter) overlooks the main lake. I almost chose a photo of that, but there aren't as many people out there who love a good outhouse with a spectacular view.
The photo I chose is simply my tent on it's tentpad, and the view I got to wake to.
