Allison Lake Provincial Park is known for its spectacular stands of aspen that burst into golden colours in the fall. The 23-hectare park is a great overnight campsite when travelling on Highway 5A between Merritt and Princeton.
The relatively small size of Allison Lake allows for safe and enjoyable paddling, canoeing and kayaking. The tree-lined Allison Lake is great for swimming, and is stocked annually with Blackwater rainbow trout raised at the Summerland Trout Hatchery.
Vehicle-accessible camping is provided in campsites that are shaded by mature Douglas fir trees and available on a first-come, first-served basis. A self-registration vault is present for payment when staff are not available. There are no services and no fee for camping during the off-season. Campground facilities are limited to pit toilets and freshwater taps. There are no pull-through RV sites or tent pads.
The day-use picnic area is on the southern shore of Allison Lake, across Highway 5A from the campground. The beach is fine white sand and varies in size with the fluctuating level of the lake. Motor vehicles are prohibited from driving on the exposed beach at low water levels. Facilities at the picnic area include 10 tables, pit toilets and a freshwater tap.
Allison Lake Provincial Park is located along Hwy 5A, between Merritt and Princeton, approximately 28 km north of Princeton.
