At Williams Lake turn west
onto Highway 20. About 21 km (13 mi) west of Riske Creek turn north
off Hwy 20 onto the Palmer Lake Forest Access Road. The lake is
71 km (44 mi) after you turn off Hwy 20. The last 6.5 km (4 mi)
is very steep and rough. 2WD can make it, but if it rains you will
need a 4x4.
Palmer has a well developed BCFS campsite with boat launching. No
trailers because of steep access road.
