  • Site Description:The drive up the Wilson Creek Forest Service Road is very scenic offering views of a cascading water fall at the 28 km marker and opportunities to do a little fly fishing all along Fitzstubbs Creek, which the road parallels. Little Wilson Lake, surrounded by high peaks, is found at the base of 2350 m Mount Ferrie. This pleasant, open, grassy campsite, well off the forest road offers a quiet get away for the avid fisherman. Little Wilson Lake is ideal for small boats and canoes. Hikers will enjoy exploring old roads and trails along the lake shore. The more ambitious hiker can use this campsite as a base for a trip to the Hamling Lakes area.

  • Driving Directions:Turn off Highway 6, at Rosebery, onto the "East Wilson Creek Road". This road soon turns into the "Wilson Creek Forest Service Road". Follow this good 2 wheel drive gravel road. At 5 km the road forks, stay left. Just before the orange and white 31 km marker look for a 4x4 post on your left, painted brown with white lettering, signed "Little Wilson Lake". Turn left here, onto a rough 2 wheel drive dirt road. Follow this road for 800 meters to the campsite.
