Darke Lake has very nice rustic camping, maybe 12 spots. No water or wood, it is easily accessible by truck about 6 km of dirt road, ensure you come in from Summerland and not from Peachland. Lovely old growth cottonwoods and douglas fir, tree swallows, stocked lake with lots of teeny fish, very nice place for kids too and swimming is ok. Boat launch….no real problem bugs or anything. The reviews that say good dirtbiking are WRONG there are only two forest roads and no trails at all. Watch out for yahoos shooting guns at night. Thanks to Tracks And Trails visitor “FS” for providing the above outdoor intelligence via comments.

Darke Lake Provincial Park, BC

Site Description: Darke Lake Provincial Park is surrounded by fir and pine-clad hills, this cool, tranquil retreat is a great getaway for those who love to fish. Local people named this the “Fish Lake” for the both rainbow trout and brook trout great rainbow and eastern brook trout. If anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia should have an appropriate licence. This lake is also also ideal for ice fishing in the winter. When the weather is warm, hikers will enjoy this remote spot as much as anglers. The park is also open for hunting and horses are allowed and a permit is not required.

Driving Direction: Located northwest of Summerland off Highway 97 onto approximately 16 km of gravel road. Follow Fish Lake Road through Meadow Valley to the park. The closest community, town or city is Summerland. 😛 😛

  2. Fantastic place…. and YES there are in fact LOTS of trails up above the lake – good for quads, ATV’s and dirtbikes. If you go up the big rocky hill at the west side of the lake, it takes you to MILES of trails… which you can take to get to Munro Lake, Eneas Lakes, and the whole Peachland off road trail network. We ride here all the time as the trails are nice, wide, and very scenic.
