Northern British Columbia is strung with pocket parks and tiny campgrounds, many of which are only partially developed. Besides the region’s provincial parks and Forest Service recreation sites, many towns maintain one or two civic campgrounds or parks, and new parks and campgrounds are opening all the time. Most campsites spring up at the confluence of roads and water, common in the river-laced and lake-bejewelled north.
Whiskers Point Provincial Park on the shores of McLeod Lake provides 69 campsites set in a mature forest of spruce and pine. A number of the campsites overlook McLeod Lake, while others are located near Whiskers Creek, which runs through the campground. Facilities provided include pit and flush toilets, water, and a sani-station. Recreational facilities include a playing field, horseshoe pits, and volleyball nets. Many of the park facilities are wheelchair accessible. The park is open from May to mid September, and fees are collected during this time.
McLeod Lake is excellent for summer recreation and a pleasant spot to pitch a tent or park a trailer. Swimming, fishing and canoeing are all popular activites at the park.
Whiskers Point Provincial Park is located on McLeod Lake in Northern British Columbia, approximately 86 miles (138 km) north of Prince George.
