Pitt Lake at Grant Narrows Regional Park

Pitt Lake is the largest tidal lake in the world. Camping, boating, fishing, water sports and hiking are just a few of the activities that can be enjoyed in the Pitt Lake area.

There is a boat launch area as well as a seasonal concession, portable toilets and an on-site caretaker. This 24 km long lake is surrounded by rugged terrain making only the south end accessible by road. There are a limited amount of remote natural campsites on Pitt Lake with full accommodations, facilities and services available in the nearby communities of Pitt Meadows or Maple Ridge.

The dikes in the southern marshy areas of Pitt Lake have numerous marked trails and are excellent for bird watching. Bird watching towers can be found along the dikes.
