Jimsmith Lake Provincial Park
This 35-site campground situated among a lakeside Douglas fir and larch forest, is a peaceful and welcome retreat for the traveling public and visitors to the nearby city of Cranbrook. The campground was rebuilt in 2001 to accommodate recreational vehicles.
Sunbathing, swimming, non-motorized boating and picnicking are popular activities at Jimsmith Park that are located in a day-use waterfront area. The day-use gates are open from 8:00am to 10:00pm. *Note: Significant upgrades to the upper and lower day-use areas of Jimsmith Lake Park are planned for the spring and early summer of 2023. The majority of the day use areas in the park will be closed for extended periods while heavy machinery is working. Access to the lower parking and boat launch area will be available, but all other day-use areas will be closed.*
This is the perfect setting for nature study and wildlife viewing. In winter, the park is transformed into a snowy playground for tobogganing and ice skating.
