Halfway and Graveyard Lake campgrounds are found in William A. Switzer Provincial Park, 3 km west of Hinton on Hwy. 16, 19 km north on Hwy. 40, and a few km southeast on a gravel access road. These two small camping areas include open sites suitable for RVs and tents. Many sites back directly on to Jarvis Creek. Graveyard Lake and Cache Lake are both within short walking distance on interpretive trails, and provide a peaceful setting for paddling or fishing. A stocked trout pond is nearby as well. There are many activities and amenities in the park, including a beach, boat launches, trails, interpretive programs, and showers within short driving distance.
