    The use of a Portable Campfire Apparatus is not recommended at this time.

    Skimikin Lake Recreation Site is a large, semi-open site that is managed through a partnership agreement. The site has been developed for horses with several corrals and manure dumping locations. The trails associated with the site are multi-use catering to ATV use and horse use. There is a care taker on site collecting camping fees from April 15 to October 15 annually.

    Regarding Horse Use: Horse corrals are on a first come-first serve basis, and if the adjacent campsites are in use by non-horse users, horse campers will have to find an unoccupied site to camp in. Water is not available on site, but horse users may bucket water from the lake or water their horses at the lakeshore. Horse users are responsible for cleaning up their own manure and depositing it in the allocated manure piles.

    ATV's, Dirt Bikes, and OHV's are permitted only in the West Recreation Site. All OHV's use is restricted to main roads for commuting to and from the Recreation Site only. Idle in and out 20km/hr.

    Dogs must be under control at all times, and Generator Use is restricted from 9-11am and 6-8pm. Quiet hours are 11pm-7am. Do not hold campsites. Sites must be occupied for the purpose of camping. Vehicles, Trailers, Tents or other personal property left unattended may be removed at the owner's expense. Only 1 vehicle per campsite, all extra vehicles are subject to a parking fee
