Hope Princeton Allison Lake


Off the beaten track, you’ll find tree-bordered Allison Lake, a great spot for swimmers and those who love to fish. The lake allows for safe, enjoyable paddling, canoeing, and kayaking. The park is known for its spectacular stands of aspen that burst into golden colours in the fall. This is a great overnight spot when travelling between Merritt and Princeton. Closest town is Princeton, 28km south of the park.
