Boya Lake Provincial Park, Atlin, British Columbia

As we traveled down the Stewart-Cassiar Highway through British Columbia, we came upon this campground just off the highway about a half mile or so. We decided to turn in and take a look to see if there were any sites available for the night, as we were camping wherever the mood struck us! A gravel/dirt road meanders down from the highway and drops into a glacier carved basin that holds Boya Lake. The first thing that struck us was the color of the lake-aquamarine-due to the silt at the bottom of the lake. The lake is noted for its warm waters (swimmable), fishing, canoeing, and color. This campground was heavily wooded and a dirt road followed the perimeter of the lake. Private campsites are the norm here and sites were fairly level, spacious, and private. Bigger rigs can access, although we watched a large fifth wheel struggle to park with so many trees along the campground road. All of the sites along the lakefront were occupied or reserved and there were only inland sites available, so we decided not to stay here. However, this place has been added to our
bucket list for the next Alaskan journey! There are no hookups here. There is a small playground and pit toilets, but we didn't see any RV dump or waterfill. Come prepared. The campground is stunning and any of the lake front sites are the place to park. Some of the campsites in the teens to twenties numbering system were set up as buddy sites and all were less wooded and more exposed to the neighbors, but with easy lake access and views, it would be worth the lack of privacy. Had we been able to snag a lake front site, I know this would have been a highlight of our trip.
