Pimainus Lake East (Merritt)


  • Rec Site #:REC6053
  • Type:User Maintained
  • Fees:None
  • Campsites:3
  • Access:Road
  • Facilities:Tables
  • Site Description: This recreation site is used mainly by fishermen, hunters and campers. There is a mixed pine/spruce forest surrounding the lake but the campsite was logged due to the presence of Mountain Pine beetle so there are very few trees there. The road into the site is a bit steep and the campsite itself is more suitable for truck campers, small trailer and tenters. Pimainus Lake is one of four lakes in a chain.

  • Driving Directions: From Merritt take Hwy 97C/ Hwy 8 west out of Merritt for 8 km. Turn right onto the paved Aberdeen Road and which then turns in to the Pimainus Forest Service Road at kilometre 7 which is gravel. Follow the Pimainus mainline and turn left at 36.5 km and follow the short, rough road down to the lake. Note this is a heavy used industrial road and caution should be taken in particularly for the first 13 kilometres where the road is a bit curvy and has some narrow corners.
