FlyFish Lake # 1 Free Camping and flyfishing

FlyFish Lake # 1 Free Camping and flyfishing recreation site has 3 campsites and you can go to the site & enjoy marvelous camping, attractive hiking, fantastic fishing.

This is a beautiful small lily pad lined lake halfway between Kelowna and Lumby. This walk-in lake is only a couple hundred meters from the main fsr. At the road there are two tent sites with fire pits and at the lake there is a small clearing with a large fire pit. Dead wood is plentiful. Bring bug spray and your fly rod!

General directions: If coming from Kelowna Follow Beaver Lake Rd from Windfield. Take the first major right after Dee lake and drive for only a few km before finding the 2 sites and the sign “Fly Fish Lake #1 Rec Site.” Roughly 45mins from Kelowna.

While we were there the area seemed to be a rich with flora and fauna. We caught leeches and fished for the fish we saw jumping. We seemed to be competing with two loons and a large eagle who also seemed to be fishing. Relaxing by the shore was pleasant as mint was growing wild along the water.

See FlyFish # 2 post  (has map you can zoom in to see the lake as well)

Dan Marceau Camp

If you search Fort St. John in the Campground Directory on Tracks And Trails home page, you will find a new location for free camping thanks to Dan Marceau. A member of Kelowna Search and Rescue before he braved the north country to go save lives.

Camp for Free in BC at Dan Marceau Camp

Dan says that you can camp for free on the Peace just east of the Taylor Ferry Rd bridge….(i guess there was a ferry before the bridge eh)

Now if we can get some pics of the area, it would be cool. So if you are looking for work and need a place to stay this summer, check out this campsite and enjoy the Peace. What should we call it? I didn’t find it listed in the Recreatin Sites and Trails guide so TracksAndTrails now names a new campground Dan Marceau Camp.

 

To get camping directions look for the map bubble by the bridge east of Taylor after you search Fort Saint John with a 100 km radius.
