True that. Although we managed to get away with some rowdy teenager shenanigans at Chilliwack Lake a few times.

haha I remember going up to Golden Ears one year when we were underaged. Park Ranger drove by in an unmarked vehicle and caught us pouring Bacardi into a 2L pop bottle. Was pretty chill about it though.

hit up harrison lake. i went there last year. no cellphone reception and not very many people at all.

down part is, gotta go on logging roads to get there.
basically drive about 20-25km on the logging roads until someone in a reflector vest greets you. i think it was like $25 dollar a car. and then drive in until you like the spot. park, camp.

Stave Lake. Lower car friendly. Downhill dusty/gravel road. Easy to get to.

Jones Lake. NOT lower car friendly AT ALL. Uphill rocky/bumpy ride. Make sure you have all your food/supplies. Stores are not close by.

The mozzies are starting to get pretty bad around Silver. Not quite as bad at Ross where I was for the weekend but still bring plenty of afterbite if you're headed up that way.

Party down, guys - we got nicely maintained gravel roads, 1500' of lake frontage, lots of clear front yard for tents... no cell service, but there is a landline to call BCAA.

Here's the cabin:



Oops, wrong pic, this is the one:



Gak! That's the doghouse... try it again:

Besides, you can't go wrong with Manning. Hike a bit and you're near the water for canoeing and shit. OP did say no need for running water, toilets, etc....... real camping, LOL.

E C Manning Provincial Park - BC Parks


The last time I went camping with my friends at Manning was during high school days, so things might have changed a bit. I believe we went to Poland Lake with our canoes. If I had to do that today, I would die from the hike.

Alpine Meadows, canoeing, hiking or trail walking, laying on the beach, swimming, feeding the ground squirrels (), etc...

Manning is one of my favorite places in the world....I was also lucky enough to work their as a park ranger one summer.
How strict are they with noise? First time going, and I'm pretty sure we're going to be quite loud haha.
