Lakelse Lake Provincial Park


In the Skeena area is Lakelse Lake Provincial Park, nestled among the mountains of the Kitimat Range and surrounded by salmon-bearing rivers and streams, which make up the Skeena Watershed. Old-growth cedar, hemlock, and Sitka spruce forests abound in the park.

Furlong Bay has a roped-off swimming area in the warmer months, though no life-guards are available, and the lake is popular for skiing, sailing, and wind-surfing.

Anglers will find trout, Dolly Varden, class salmon (all five species of Pacific salmon spawn in the rivers), and steelhead runs.

SOURCE INFORMATION

Northern Health's responsibility in Northern British Columbia is from the Queen Charlotte Islands to the Alberta border, and as far south as Quesnel. There is a map of Northern Health’s jurisdictional boundaries on the Northern Health website at https://northernhealth.ca/AboutUs.aspx

British Columbia health departments select and test water quality found at primary (swimming) and secondary (non-swimming) contact beaches across the province, following the Canadian Recreational Water Quality Guidelines. Most health departments in the interior test for E. coli from May to September (except for Vancouver Island Health Authority, which tests from June to September). Samples are collected weekly with a minimum of 5 test samples collected in a month. Warnings are posted by Fraser Riverkeeper if the 30-day geometric mean rises above 100 E. coli / 100 ml of water. There is currently no regular monitoring of these beaches.
