Placer Lake

Princeton, BC View Map
Number of Sites: 2

The small sub-alpine Placer Lake recreation site provides camping, hiking and fishing opportunities. Best suitable to tenters. Vehicle access is only recommended to within approximately 1.5 km of the site. From there, the access road gets rough and is only suitable for a very high centred 4 wheel drive vehicle or you could hike to the lake. Due to access, float tube/belly boat fishing is quite popular at the lake.
