This pristine, glacier-fed creek flows from high up in the Golden Ears mountains to Alouette Lake. Even in the middle of summer the crisp, clear water is as cold as ice. Take the short trail along the creek to the northern beach at Alouette Lake, or camp at either the Gold Creek or North Beach campgrounds. There are several hiking trails in the area that are part of the Golden Ears Provincial Park hiking trail system.

Things to do:

There are two campgrounds in the area: the Gold Creek campground, which is open year-round and has 148 vehicle accessible campsites; and the smaller North Beach campground, which is open from June 26 – September 7, and has 55 campsites. Both of the campgrounds have a number of reservable campsites which can be reserved through Discover Camping.
If you’re brave enough, you can swim in the icy-cold water of Gold Creek. Otherwise, you can take a 15-minute walk down the North Beach trail to the lake. There are outhouses at both the beginning of the trail near the parking lot, and at the end near the beach. Enjoy beautiful views of the mountains and a less-populated area of Alouette Lake.
