As of July 3, 2012 the traditional access route to this site via the property of the Highland Valley Copper Mine is no longer available. Once you have exited the Logan Lake to Ashcroft Highway 97D near the west end of the mine, follow the road until you see the turn off marked Laura Lake. Turn right onto Laura Lakes Road and continue on for about 7 km. Turn left here. This turnoff is near Laura Lakes. Follow this road to the 14 km mark to Calling Lake. From Calling Lake proceed north for about 5 km and then turn left, which will bring you to the northeast end of the lake where the recreation site is located. A 4X4 truck is highly recommended.
