There are two options for camping near the Lightning Lakes Chain Trail. The first is the popular Lightning Lake Campsite, which is quite large and accessible for vehicles and RVs. This campsite has more than 140 camping sites, however it fills up quickly and reservations must be made through BC Parks early in the season.

The other campsite along the route is the Strike Lake Campsite, which is a wilderness campsite located in the backcountry. The campsite is located just after Strike Lake and has an outhouse and spots for 8 tents. A Backcountry Camping Permit is required to stay at this campsite and must be purchased before your arrival. Please ensure to pack-out all garbage.
