WHITE PINE BEACH - SOUTH

Sasamat lake is a small lake that is easy to access for Vancouverites and therefore is very popular.

The small parking lot fills rapidly on a nice day and the gate is locked after the parking lot is full.

Families and inexperienced swimmers prefer the Southern beach as it has a long gradual slope in the water.

At the Northern beach, experienced swimmers; go beyond the roped area, dive off rocks, and swim across the lake.

There is a hiking trail, 2.5 Km. long. The trail doesn't circumnavigate the lake but crosses the lower, narrow part of the lake via a pontoon bridge.

The bridge features two staging areas for fishermen and swimmers.
