Sunnyside Campground Inaccessible

Cultus Lake Park staff have worked closely with contracted crews following the November 14th flooding to restore the park back to its original state.

A substantial amount of debris collected on the lake over the course of multiple weeks following the extreme weather conditions. Contracted crews worked continuously to remove the debris to prevent further flooding and congestion in Sweltzer Creek.

Cultus Lake Park is beginning the next phase of recovery at Sunnyside Campground starting on Monday, December 20, 2021. The campground will be inaccessible to all residents and visitors for the duration of the week as crews will be on site grinding and removing the significant piles of wood fragments. To ensure public safety, signage will be posted along the foreshore alerting the community to avoid this area until work has been completed.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding at this time.

If you have any questions, please contact the park office at 604-858-3334 or email [email protected].

Cultus Lake Park has partnered with the Fraser Valley Regional District to become a temporary pick-up location for flood recovery resources!

The Fraser Valley Regional District collaborated with the Red Cross to procure recovery kits for residents within Electoral Area H. Each kit is stocked with cleaning items that are essential in supporting the process of restoration after a flood within your residence. These containers also make a great addition to emergency kits in preparation for potential flooding in the future.

The recovery kits, guidebooks and information packages are available for pick-up at the Cultus Lake Park office Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm. Registration is not required to claim one of these kits. A reminder that the park office will be closed from Friday, December 24, 2021 returning to the office Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

If you have any questions, please contact the park office at 604-858-3334 or email [email protected].

A Message from the Chief Administrative Officer

On behalf of the Cultus Lake Park Board, we would like to thank everyone who is diligently working in these extreme weather conditions to keep our community safe.

Cultus Lake Park staff, Fraser Valley Regional District, Ministry of Transportation and The City of Chilliwack worked around the clock for the last two days to assess areas of extreme danger and damage, clear roads and culverts of mud and debris and keeping our community informed.

We would like to extend our appreciation and gratitude to Soowahlie First Nations Band for allowing members of the community and surrounding area emergency access through their lands.

We are grateful for the Cultus Lake Volunteer Fire Department, all First Responders, volunteers and members of the community that dedicated time and resources to keeping the community safe over the last couple days.

Thank you to the Cultus Lake Park community for your patience and cooperation as we begin the journey to restore our community and surrounding area.

Sincerely,

Joe Lamb
Chief Administrative Officer
