Default Cheakamus Lake Camping

Hi,

Quick question.

My friends and I are planning an overnight trip to Cheakamus Lake this Saturday/Sunday. I know it is a popular day hike, but is it usually crowed for overnight camping? I assume it is, but don't want to have a painfully early start if it is not necessary.

Thanks for any info.

It's been a while but I'd say you don't normally need to worry about overnight crowds. However, with so much snow at higher elevations it might be a different story...

Last weekend in June was crazy busy at the lake. We canoed down to the far end of the lake and were amazed--three tents! We decided to stay at the creekmouth on the little point near the end of the lake.
