Golden Ears, Rolley Lake Parks Gear Up for Canada Day Weekend

Golden Ears and Rolley Lake Provincial Parks are gearing up for Canada Day weekend, with campgrounds fully booked in advance. The high demand includes the recently added 17 walk-in campsites at Rolley Lake.

James Hall, manager of Golden Ears and Rolley Lake Provincial Parks, said the Victoria Day long weekend was busy despite bad weather.

According to an article published by Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows News on June 26, he reported that Rolley Lake saw an average of 600 vehicles per day, while Golden Ears recorded about 1,500 vehicles daily during the May long weekend.

The construction of a new culvert has been completed, restoring access to the northern areas of the park, including North Beach campgrounds. This project was necessary after a December atmospheric river event caused damage, with over 25 millimeters of rainfall in a short period.

“Fortunately, there were no campers or park users in the area at the time of the incident as the failure had occurred overnight,” Hall said.

BC Parks issued several advisories for Golden Ears visitors. To manage visitor numbers and protect the park environment, free day passes are required to access the Alouette Lake boat launch, South Beach day-use area, Gold Creek, and West Canyon trailheads.

Less than an hour drive from Vancouver, Rolley Lake Provincial Park offers a quick escape from urban life. This park features a warm-water lake suitable for swimming, fishing, and canoeing.

With 64 campsites nestled among the trees minutes from the lakeshore, visitors can enjoy a convenient outdoor experience. Additional recreational activities include picnicking and short hikes through the park.

Accessible amenities include drinking water, a playground, and a sani station. Campfires are permitted, and there are designated picnic areas for visitors to enjoy.

The situation at Golden Ears and Rolley Lake Provincial Parks shows the importance of offering events and activities to drive repeat visits. Future developers and private campground owners can focus on enhancing infrastructure, promoting educational programs, and organizing seasonal events to maintain engagement and encourage repeat visits.
