Pure Lake Provincial Park





Pure Lake Provincial Park is a 130 hectare Park managed by BC Parks and centred around scenic Pure Lake, a freshwater lake popular with locals as a swimming spot. 

The shallow lake gets warm during the summer months and is used extensively on hot summer days, particularly by families. 

The Agate Man Triathlon, held every summer, has the swimming portion of the race take place at Pure lake. 

It is listed on the excellent brochure "Guide to Recreation sites and trails of Haida Gwaii".

There is a Day-use area, easily accessible via a short, scenic walking trail from the Parking lot, located on Highway 16, about halfway beween the communities of Port Clements and Masset. Here is a link to a map that shows its location. It is possible to bring a small, non powered craft on the lake, there are picnic tables, dogs have to be kept on a leash. There are pit toilets and garbage cans. Please leave the area spotless, and carry out your garbage if possible.
