The smell of the forest is so fresh as you drive in from the road to the parking area. Plenty of parking and good size lake. Many families enjoying the warm weather and beaches.

The Whete Pine Beach is nice on the Sasamat Lake. There are chair and table for quick lunch, the trails can start from this beach around the Lake.

Awesome place to go to enjoy the sun and water. Just make sure you get there by 11am or else they close the parking and you have to hike it to the beach

The lay time I visited was in January, but that wasn’t the first. There is geese poop everywhere and never anyplace to sit. I cannot stand going to this beach.

White Pine is very limited on parking. We try to get there no later than 10:30. Once it is closed that's it.

Hi there, No, unfortunately there's no camp spots at all. You might find a spot at Anmore Camping and RV park which is about a 10 minute drive away from Sasamat and only five minute from Buntzen Lake Or.. you could try... More
