A total of four provincial parks are located within a half hour drive of Cranbrook.

They have at least two things in common – they are all named after the lake by which they are situated, and they all accommodate campers.

Jimsmith Lake

A popular spot with locals, Jimsmith Lake Provincial Park is just 5km/3mi from town. The activity menu at this 14ha/34ac park includes picnicking, swimming, sunbathing and non-motorized boating. There are also 28 vehicle campsites. In winter, the lake freezes to become a large skating rink.

Wasa Lake

The larger 144ha/356ac Wasa Lake Provincial Park is 40km/25mi north of Cranbrook. One of the warmest in the area, the lake is great for swimming, windsurfing and waterskiing – powerboats are permitted here. Shared by hikers and cyclists, the 8km/5mi "Wasa Lions Way" is a paved path around the lake. A total of 104 vehicle-accessible campsites complete this family-friendly destination.
