Located along the main road, the Carpenter Lake Recreation Site is a small area that is great for rest stops by those travelling to and from Seton Portage. There is room for two vehicles to camp, but due to the nature of the site, camping is not the preferred use. There is one pit toilet onsite. Please do not litter, and pack out what you pack in. The nearby boat launch is managed and used by BC Hydro and its employees for maintenance on the dam. It is not for public use. Be advised that the lake level fluctuates due to the hydro activities. Obey all signage in the area.
