This Site is subject to flooding at high water.

Harrison Lake water levels rise and fall each season during the freshet (snowmelt).  Some of our campsites get flooded out during this part of the season.  We have blocked out particular sites at Bear Creek and Cascade from May 14 to June 27 to avoid conflicts with high water.  High water changes each season and the dates may have to be adjusted further.

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.
