“Quiet paradise 13 km from Stewart, BC and Hyder, AK”

Overall Rating

This is a gem of a spot. If you happen to have the place to yourself (or not have to share it with too many people), you'll be in heaven. This deep turquoise lake has cold water (no leeches!) and is a great place to swim or paddle. There are only 5 sites (officially only 1 RV site, 2-3 tent sites along the lake and a large parking area that can accommodate 3 RVs). The road keeps going after the lake, but it is pretty rough.

If you are a big rig, I highly recommend you unhook your tow vehicle to check the situation before driving in, because it could be very tricky to turn around if the large area is full. If you decide to walk from the entrance to the camping area, be aware that there are lots of bears in the area.

To get there: Drive North from Stewart along Highway 37A for approximately 13 km. (8 miles). After crossing the Bitter Creek bridge take the first right. Turn left at the first junction and follow the road, keeping to the right for another km. (.6 miles).
If you are coming from Meziadin Jct, look for the little brown wooden sign (Clements Lake Recreation Site).

There are a few picnic tables along the lake and one outhouse. Be advise that the hike that leaves from the campground (Ore Mountain) is said to be 3 km to a beautiful altitude lake, but it is much longer, very steep and not very rewarding in terms of views (and be very bear aware). There is no cell signal.
