This campsite can accommodate up to 32 foot RV's. Tent, trailer, Hammack, and eco camping is available. New saying beach area put in 2019, great for the kids to play it. In the spring and early summer, trout fishing makes this a popular weekend retreat for area residents. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout, eastern brook trout, and kokanee. On long weekends, Box Lake becomes the site for family reunions. Later in the season, the towering cedar and hemlock surrounding Box Lake campsite, provide a cool and shady retreat, while the sun beats down. The lake warms to comfortable swimming temperatures in mid summer. In the fall look for mushrooms under the cedar and hemlock trees. Boating restriction: electric motors only.

From the junction of Highway 6 and 23 in Nakusp, travel east on Highway 6 towards New Denver for 10 km. About 2.5 km before the Box Lake turn off, you will begin to get views of the lake from the highway. At 10 km, look for a brown 4x4 post with white lettering, signed "Box Lake" on your right. Turn off Highway 6 at this sign, onto a good 2 wheel drive dirt road. Proceed 1.9 km to a sharp right turn, which will take you into the recreation site.
