Cultus Lake

Cultus Lake is a relatively large and warm British Columbia lake that attracts numerous visitors during its peak summer season. Many visitors come to enjoy the lake's lovely sand beaches, especially since the water is warmer than the water at the coastal beaches. Others come to enjoy other water activities, such as fishing, water skiing, and wind surfing. Since the lake is part of a provincial park, hiking is among the most popular land-based activities. There's more to this excellent destination than the lake and the hiking trails, however, and as such, you can expand your horizons when looking for things to do.

Cultus Lake and its associated park and community can be found approximately 50 miles east of Vancouver. This lends to the destination's popularity, as it is relatively easy to reach from the big city. When visitors aren't hiking in the park and enjoying watersports on the lake, they can explore the options for things to do in the community of Cultus Lake. This community offers a pair of golf courses, a waterpark that features the renowned Cultus Lake waterslides, a funland area where you can ride bumper boats, and plenty more. There's even a marina in the community of Cultus Lake, and it could hardly be easier to rent a boat, a kayak, a canoe, or a jet ski. The Cultus Lake waterslides are found at the Cultus Lake Waterpark. This waterpark is the most popular waterpark in all of British Columbia.

On an overnight visit to Cultus Lake, you will have some interesting options when it comes to places to stay. Securing a well-equipped Cultus Lake vacation home rental can be an excellent way to go, and you can also consider renting a cottage or cabin. Rentals on the water are in good supply regardless of your preference.

On the more natural side of things, it is also possible to go camping at Cultus Lake. There are numerous campsites to choose from at the Sunnyside Campground, and they include waterfront spots and sites with full hook ups. The 348 total sites are seasonal and can be claimed between May 1 and September 30. The physical address for the Sunnyside Campground is 3045 Columbia Valley Highway. If you can't secure a site there, there is another campground in nearby Chilliwack that might have sites available. It is known as the Vedder River Campground and can be found at 5215 Giesbrecht Road.
