Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Within 15km/9.3mi of Sicamous, four provincial parks offer sandy beaches, boat launches, fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, and incredible access to the wilderness.
Plan a multi-day camping trip to Shuswap Lake Marine, Cinnemousun Narrows, or Yard Creek Provincial Parks, or spend an afternoon at Mara Provincial Park, a day-use park on Mara Lake (12km/7.5mi south of Sicamous) with great swimming and trout-fishing.
Shuswap Lake Marine Provincial Park
Shuswap Lake Marine Provincial Park is a unique collection of 26 small sites scattered along the four "arms" of Shuswap Lake. While the lake is a very busy boating area in summer, these sites are spread out, and the Shuswap Highland and Monashee Mountain terrain is steep and forested, making it possible to find beaches, camping, fishing, and hiking spots that feel like wilderness secrets.
