Cultus Lake Park is your recreation destination for fishing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, hiking, swimming and so much more! Located only 11 kilometers south of the Chilliwack River, it is the gem of the Fraser Valley. While you are here come support our local restaurants, shops and amusement parks! There is something for the entire family to enjoy. This unique community is also home to more than 1,500 residential leaseholders, 21 commercial businesses and Sunnyside Campground, with close to 600 campsites. The park receives no funding on a Local, Provincial or Federal level and is entirely self-sustaining. We appreciate all of your continued support to protect and preserve this natural landmark.
Effective Thursday, August 4, 2022, at 12:00 pm, campfires will be prohibited throughout Cultus Lake Park and Sunnyside Campground in alignment with Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development. This prohibition is being enacted to help reduce wildfire risk and protect public safety.
This prohibition will be in place until October 28, 2022, or until the order is rescinded.
The campfire prohibition does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas or propane provided they are CSA or ULC approved, and the height of the flame is less than 15 centimeters.
As per the Cultus Lake Park Burning Conditions, Restrictions, and Fire Ban Bylaw No. 1144, 2019 Schedule A-4, 3.11 use of an open flame during a fire ban will result in a $500 fine.
The Province of British Columbia notes that anyone who lights, fuels or uses an open fire when a fire prohibition is in place or fails to comply with an open fire prohibition may be issued a ticket for $1,150 or, if convicted in court, be fined up to $100,000 and/or sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person responsible may be subject to a penalty of up to $100,000 and ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs.
A poster explaining the different categories of open burning is available online here.
