One of the better kept secrets of the Coast, Klein Lake lays hidden away in the forest near the community of Egmont.
It can be reached by taking North Lake Road, which can be accessed from Egmont Road (just south of the Earls Cove Ferry terminal). This is a very popular camping spot with a seasonal caretaker, 25 tenting sites, a few small RV site (note there are no RV hookups or sanitation flush facilities), public washrooms, and a lovely day use picnic area. There is one campsite and washroom facility that is wheelchair accessible. Camping season runs from April 15 through September 30, with nightly fees per party (cash only). Please note that reservations are not available at this lake, as the site runs on a first-come, first-served basis.
The communities of Egmont (an approximate 10-15 minute drive) and Pender Harbour (an approximate 30-minute drive) offer additional accommodation and exploration options. Please drive very carefully in this area, as there are blind corners along this route.
