This small lake can be accessed from the community of Harrison Mills
on Hwy. #7. Take the Morris Valley Road north and then onto the
good gravel Harrison West logging road for approximately 23 km.
(14.3 mi.). There are marked signs to the lake. Total distance from
Harrison Mills is about 31.3 km. (19.4 mi.). In appearance the lake
looks like it is squeezed in the middle with two main parts connected
by a channel bordered by rocky knolls.
There are 2 small BCFS campsites on Wood Lake; one on either side
of the lake. There is a gravel boat launch at the northern campsite.
Although the gravel road is good, the campsite is not suitable for
motorhomes. As well as the marked campsites, the open area around
the lake lends itself for making your own campsite. This lake is
very popular in the summer so early arrival is a good idea. Facilities
and services are available at Harrison Mills.

1 lb. This well protected lake with good quantities of aquatic insects,

This popular recreation area is surrounded by heavily forested hills
consisting of Douglas fir and Hemlock, studded with bare rocky outcrops.
There may be evidence of past logging in certain areas. The narrow
plateau that accommodates the lake overlooks the massive Harrison
Lake to the east.
There is good access to the lake except at the northeast end. Occassional
rocky outcroppings or old logs are common along the shore. The southeastern
corner is covered with grass and sphagnum and can be very damp and
