Smile Matheson Lake

Can someone tell me about camping and hiking and fishing in this area?

Can I easily find what I am looking for? maybe a 'spare' canoe left at the lake?

Thanks for any and all responses

I used to spend time at Matheson Lake as a youth living in Victoria. It's a pretty spot.

Camping is not allowed. Some campsites in the area you could look into are the Sooke Potholes or Goldstream - not really that close though. I'm sure there are others nearby, it's been a long time and I'm starting to forget.

Fishing should be pretty good as the lake is stocked with trout. I do not recall seeing any canoes left at the lake. There used to be an excellent tire swing however, fond memories of that!

If you want to hike in and do some fishing consider Grassy Lake hike in that area- be aware of cougar activity.
