Description

Good Spirit Lake Camp is located in a deciduous forest in Good Spirit Lake Provincial Park. The lake is excellent for canoeing and canoe instruction. The water is shallow and there are many sheltered areas. There are excellent hiking opportunities in and around the camp. The site has some unique features such as sand dunes at the south end of the lake.

There are four winterized buildings: three bunkhouses (one, which sleeps 30, was built in 2012) and another building with some office/storage, and sleeping spaces. There is also an outdoor cooking/dining shelter. Drinking water has been subject to recent issues in the past 3-4 years, it is advised to bring your own if you can. Check with the park on water advisories before coming.

The lake is good for swimming due to its shallow bottom, however there is a lot of debris in the lake from years of agricultural use. It is advised that if you are swimming near the camp to wear water shoes.
