Windsurfing has been a popular sport in Harrison Lake for decades.

Sasquatch Provincial Park is a beautiful getaway in the heart of Fraser Valley. You can enjoy camping, paddling, and fishing in any of the park’s three lakes: Trout Lake, Hicks Lake and Deer Lake. Here are some fun activities available at Sasquatch Provincial Park.

Sasquatch Park supports a large variety of wildlife including beavers, mountain goats, woodpeckers, warblers, and vireos. Many rare species have been seen in the park, including bald eagles, tailed frogs, and black petaltail dragonflies. The lakes and streams in the park are full of fish with over ten species of fish from the sturgeon, smelt, salmon, catfish, and stickleback families. For anglers, all three lakes are stocked with rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, and brook char.
