If you’re looking for a new BC park to explore and a prime paddling spot all rolled into one – consider adding Adams Lake Marine Park to your summer itinerary. With pristine, crystal blue water surrounded by lush forest – you’ll have no shortage of natural beauty to take in.

Situated northeast of Kamloops in south-central BC, Adams Lake is the second largest natural lake in the southern interior of the province – and as such, offers visitors plenty to do by way of outdoor activities. Whether you want to take a boat out on the water, go fishing for species like rainbow trout or kokanee salmon, or stick with swimming – there’s something for everyone here.

In terms of wildlife spotting, visitors may be able to see bald eagles, deer, black bears, waterfowl, and various other bird species during their visit.

Note that the park consists of three marine sites: Spillman Beaches, Poplar Point (accessible only by boat), and Refuge Bay. And while you can visit for the day, all three sites are currently closed to campers for the time being due to hazardous trees.

Though if you’re interested in planning a camping trip, there’s always the stunning adjacent Bush Creek Site on Adams Lake, which is home to scuba, windsurfing, waterskiing, and canoeing opportunities.
