Facilities: Public beach, day-use picnic area, flush toilets, change house. Location: Off Hwy 3, in the town of Christina Lake. Christina Lake has a reputation of being one of the warmest lakes in all of Canada and is very popular with families. With its 300 metres of fine sandy beach, people flock to this swimming destination in the summer months. There is no overnight camping at this location. The closest provincial park campground with overnight accommodation is Gladstone (Texas Creek campground), 10 km east of Christina Lake. Nearby provincial campgrounds that should be able to accommodate last-minute campers in July and August include Boundary Creek, Jewel Lake, and Nancy Greene.

Miss the old swim platform!

Need to put swim platform back in - fun for all ages. Could use a bit more weed removal. Nicely kept but could use a bit more landscaping.

Great place to visit if you have a boat and enjoy water sports without the crowds. Real warm water and not too many people. many places to camp with boat access at a reasonable price.

we checked into our hotel, the New Horizon, and wanted to explore the area so we went to the park, sat on a bench and watched what was happening. Very pleasant, lots of locals coming to do the same thing, people enjoying the beach and natural surroundings. Very pretty.

It can be a tiny bit rocky in the water, so kids may want the rubber shoe thingees. The lake itself is perfect for boating activities, but this beach/park is another... More

We stopped briefly in Christina Lake but for sure will be back. Great beach and warm water. Totally kid friendly and not too deep. It would be a great place to picnic for lunch or dinner.

Great place to go for a dip. It had lots of shade under trees. Picnic benches. Water was just lovely to swim. Tap so you can wash your feet if need to . Very clean and family orientated. Beautiful scenery with mountain views. GO you'll like it. !!! Also drop by the info centre. Nice shop there.
