The Big OK (Island Lake) recreation site is managed as a rustic experience. Although the main road to the site is 2 wheel drive accessible, the short access road is rough and rocky requiring slow driving, and careful maneuvering. The campsite itself is also very rocky, making it hard to maneuver larger camping units throughout the site. In an effort to keep the site safe and open to public use, hazardous pine beetle infected trees have been repeatedly removed. As a result, the site is now very open and prone to the wind. Found at an elevation of 1504 m, the recreation site is a popular fly-fishing destination, and the lake provides world class fly fishing. Check the BC Freshwater Sportsfishing Synopsis for current regulations at this lake.
Access is from Highway 97C between Logan Lake and Ashcroft on Laura Lake Road. Follow all signage and stay on main roads. Road access crosses through, and borders, the Highland Valley Copper Mine property. The short access road to the recreation site is rough and rocky.
