Driving Directions

From Vancouver, take Highway #1 or #7 to Harrison Hot Springs.  Bear Creek is located about a 45min drive from Harrison.

Turn right at the stoplight when you get into Harrison, besides the gas station, onto Rockwell Drive.   Follow Rockwell Drive and travel north along Harrison Lake until you get to where the road changes to gravel.   Go left onto the Harrison East Forest Service Road  and drive to the 15 km marker,  turn left into the campground.

Be aware this is a forest service road with gravel, potholes and dust.  Take caution and drive slowly.
