Summit Lake Provincial Park

 

Summit Lake Provincial Park is located between Nakusp and New Denver along Highway 6 in the picturesque Slocan Valley. This small park sits on a little peninsula jutting out into the calm green waters of Summit Lake. The lake, surrounded by majestic mountain scenery, is a great place to enjoy canoeing, kayaking, and swimming from a small pebbly beach. Fishing for rainbow and cutthroat trout is also very popular in the lake. While camping here, don’t miss an opportunity to visit Nakusp Hot Springs, nestled in the mountains 11 km northeast of the town of Nakusp.
