Hope prince otter lake


Otter Lake is ideal for old fashioned camping in a natural private lakeside setting. The Cascade Mountain Range surrounds the park and includes awesome canyons and clear flowing streams. The Park is located about 33 km northwest of Princeton, BC off Hwy 5A.

The Campsites are popular for the locals and, as a result, ALL campsites are now reservable during peak season and for all long weekends. During spring and fall, except as previously noted, many campsites are still available on a first come first serve basis.
