This oasis off the beaten bath is the perfect place to dry-camp! Passing through from Harrison Hot Springs to Lake Louise, we wanted to divide the travel in half so we tested our luck with Skimikin Lake. We were definitely NOT disappointed.

Scored a perfect lakeside spot (#29) that was quiet and far from our next neighbor. Great views of the surrounding hills, trees, and peaceful lake Skimikin. I can see how this place might get a little noisy on a peak season weekend, but for our midweek stay the only noises we heard were the birds chirping and fish jumping. This place also has neat little horse corrals for equestrian camping. Fishing appeared to be allowed on the lake. And there was even a fire pit at our site. Only reason we give it 4/5 for access is because the road through the campsite is dirt/mud and not paved. Not a problem for our Sprinter van.

Friendly camp host (Lysa) came by to collect our $12 camp fee and make sure we were settled in OK. There’s a winery down the road a bit but we didn’t get a chance to check it out. Maybe next time! We would absolutely return here.

NOTE: generators are allowed during the following times... 9-11am and 6-8pm.

Pit toilets.

No showers.
No electricity.
No water.
No dump.
No garbage collection.

No Wi-Fi.
One bar of 3G service barley strong enough to update the weather app on our iPhones.
