There are two campsites located at Cheakamus Lake. The Cheakamus Lake campsite is located at the southern end of the lake and is only 3km from the parking lot along a relatively flat trail. The campsite has 10 sites to set up a tent along the shore of Cheakamus Lake. Other facilities include a pit toilet and a pulley system used to hang food.

The Singing Creek campsite is located along the northwest side of Cheakamus Lake about 7km from the parking lot. There are 7 spaces for tents, a pit toilet, and a pulley system to hang food.

Reservations are required for camping at Cheakamus Lake during the peak season (approximately June to October) and a Backcountry Camping Permit is required year-round (Backcountry Camping Permit is included with a Reservation during the peak season). Camping will not be permitted without a reservation during the peak season and a backcountry pass year-round and will result in eviction and a fine.

Additonal hikes in the area can be done to Helm Lake from a junction halfway between the parking lot and Cheakamus Lake. It is noted that the trail to Cheakamus Lake is also a mountain bike friendly trail.
