Pemberton is known for its stunning mountain scenery, beautiful meadows, farmland, rivers and lakes. If you are visiting Pemberton anytime of the year, here is a guide to some of the best lakes in the area.

One Mile Lake Summer

1. One Mile Lake

This lake is hard to miss!  One Mile Lake is located just at the entrance to Pemberton, off Highway 99.  This accessibility of the lake makes it a popular destination at any time of the year.  There is a park at the south end of the lake, complete with picnic tables, fire pit and designated swim area.   An accessible trail loops right around the lake, perfect for a walk during all seasons.  The lake is often used in the winter for skating and hockey.  During the summer ,the lake is used by the local dragon boat team, paddle boarders and canoes.

2. Mosquito & Ivey Lake

Pemberton Ivey Lake

Mosquito and Ivey Lake are located side by side just a short drive or bike ride north of Pemberton.  There is a great network of trails around the lakes which are popular with mountain bikers, horse riders and trail runners.  Mosquito & Ivey Lake are the go to spot for Pemberton locals during the summer months.

3. Birkenhead Lake

Birkenhead Lake is located approximately 60km north of Pemberton.  The lake is located in the Birkenhead Lake Provisional Park, a beautiful area home to a variety of wildlife and old growth forests.  Birkenhead Lake is a popular lake for camping, fishing, canoeing, boating, hiking and mountain biking.  During the winter season the lake is popular for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

4. Anderson Lake

Located just past the turn off to Birkenhead Lake in the community of D'Arcy, is spectacular Anderson Lake.  Anderson Lake is very popular with boaters during the summer months as this is one of the largest lakes in the area with a length of 21kms.  The lake stretches from D'Arcy up to the small community of Seton Portage.  Anderson Lake is popular for swimming, waterskiing, wakeboarding, sailing, windsurfing and fishing.
