This lake has everything. Beautiful unspoiled natural mountain setting in a clean unpoluted lake. Great beaches and to top it off, Christina Lake is one of the warmest lakes in British Columbia. Easy access right off of highway 3 and not commercialized..

I'm going to say Yes, however, I didn't use my phone. The town of Christina Lake is so close to the lake, you shouldn't have a problem. The residential district, is just up from the lake parking lot.
