The sleepy lakeside town of CHASE and the hamlet of SQUALIX gather around Little Shuswap Lake, 45km northwest of Salmon Arm on Hwy-1. Not only do they offer a couple of interesting overnight options but they’re also the gateway communities for the Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park, which provides an easily accessible and superb view of the salmon migrations from signposted viewing platforms. Although the park offers no camping there is a 26-mile trail system used for hiking and mountain biking in summer and snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in winter. If you’re thinking of dangling a line, pick up the Fishing in Shuswap leaflet from the visitor centre in Chase or Salmon Arm; don’t forget to get a licence at the same time. The park is 5km north of Squalix on a signposted side road.
