On the Water

Cultus is famous for its large and warm freshwater lake. The water is quite warm, crystal clear and usually very calm meaning there is ample opportunity for fishing, boating, water-skiing and swimming.

Swim only within the buoyed swimming areas. There are wharfs available in the Entrance Bay day-use area and Maple Bay day-use areas. Beaches are sandy. Please note that there are steep, dangerous drop-offs along the lakeshore and that there are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.

Watch for the metal flags strung above the river east of the Vedder Crossing Bridge that outline the kayak slalom course. The Chilliwack is graded from Class ll to Class lV with rocks, boulder gardens, blind corners, haystacks, and surfing waves. The canyon portion is steeper and more demanding. Chilliwack River highlights include the Picket Fence Rapid, Cable Pool, Boulder Run and the Race Course. There are 33km of the Chilliwack river to run.
