Eneas Lake

British Columbia

Location: Located west of the town of Peachland.

The road to Eneas Lakes was deactivated as of April 1, 2002. Access to the park is by 4x4 vehicle only. Recommend packing along a chainsaw, for it is common to find trees and debris across the road on your way in. There is no signage on the forestry road to Eneas Lakes; you should have a good forestry map for the area.

Limited road access - 20 km of rough gravel road along the Munro Lake Forest Service Road west of Peachland. Four-wheel drive vehicles recommended; 4 km further northwest of Darke Lake Provincial Park. Please note the logging road going into Eneas Lake is not maintained; very rugged terrain. The closest communities, towns and cities are Summerland and Peachland.

Resorts & Campsites: There is no developed campsite at Big Eneas Lake. The Eneas Lakes Provincial Park allows wilderness, backcountry or walk-in camping, but no facilities are provided. The park features a unique lake complex consisting of Big and Little Eneas Lakes, Island Lake and Tsuh Lake. When water levels are high, Big Eneas and Little Eneas form one a single 25ha lake. Island Lake is accessible only by boat or foot and has no development along its heavily forested shores. The park also encompasses the upper drainages of the lakes. The pristine fir and pine forest is habitat for the red listed Northern goshawk.

Fishing Report: Both Big Eneas and Little Eneas contain Rainbow trout to 2 lbs. and remain popular lakes throughout the fishing season. Fly fishing and trolling are methods used with success.
