  • Site Description: The Big OK (Island Lake) recreation site is managed as a rustic experience. The campsite itself is very rocky and generally treeless and may be quite windy at times. Found at an elevation of 1504 m, the recreation site is a popular high value fly-fishing destination. Check the BC Freshwater Sportsfishing Synopsis for current regulations at this lake.

  • Driving Directions: As of July 3, 2012 the traditional access route to this site via the property of the Highland Valley Copper Mine is no longer available. So once you have exited the Logan Lake to Ashcroft highway )97D) near the west end of mine follow the road until you see the turn off marked Laura Lake. Turn right onto Laura Lakes Road and continue on for about 7 km. Turn left here. This turnoff is near Laura Lakes. Follow this road to the 14 km mark to Calling Lake. From Calling Lake proceed north for about 5 km and then turn left which will bring you to the northeast end of the lake where the recreation site is located. A 4X4 truck is highly recommended.
