  • Site Description:This site is not accommodating to large units. Camping spots are not that large and are more suitable for smaller trailers, truck campers and tents. The on site road is a little narrow to turn around a large rig. The recreation site is a popular location for fishermen, hunters and campers. This treed and shady site is directly adjacent to the north shore of the lake and has a small boat launch.

  • Driving Directions: From Merritt proceed north up the Coldwater Road until the small community of Kingsvale. Turn right and proceed over the bridge keeping to the left once you cross it. This is the via Murray Lake Forest Service Road. The recreation site is located at 6.3 km. When you see the lake drive a little further where you will find the entrance. This requires a very sharp turn to the left so if you proceed about a kilometre further you can turn your rig around and then proceed directly onto the camp site road. Not much room to turn around a truck and large camper once you are in the campsite area.
