Fushimi Lake

Fushimi Lake

Backcountry Camping

1. The Experience:

The lush green boreal forest and wide-open skies of Fushimi Lake Provincial Park give it a distinct northern feel. Each backcountry campsite is the perfect remote basecamp. All offer something different, from sandy beaches to the rocky water’s edge, small rapids, and incredible views of the sunset.

Many visitors enjoy the Fire Tower Trail, which is accessible by boat or canoe on the north side of the lake. Visitors can use one of the park’s seven sandy beaches, paddle a section of the Valentine River system, or enjoy excellent Walleye and Northern Pike fishing opportunities from the shore or a boat.

All 12 backcountry campsites are accessible by water only. All campsites are a short distance from the boat launch, and only a few hours paddle.

On each campsite you will find a tent pad, picnic table, firepit, and box privy.

2. Reservations and Interior Camping Permits

Campsite specific reservations are available online or by phone up to five months in advance of your arrival date. Reservations are recommended to secure your campsite.

Interior camping permits are required for backcountry camping at Fushimi Lake Provincial Park. Permits can be obtained upon arrival at the park office during operating hours.
