Directions to Park

Seasonal water shutdown and dump station closure

  • The water system and dump station at Chain Lakes Provincial Park has been shut down and all lines winterized.
  • Campers should bring their own water and firewood. 
  • Camping is available in Loop B all year.  Loops A & C are closed October 16 to April 30.

Chain Lakes Provincial Park is located in a region that is often extremely dry. For this reason, only communal fire pits are provided in the park's campground. Communal fire pits may be used only during appropriate weather conditions (firewood is supplied at no extra cost).
