I'm planning on taking an older fellow "backcountry" camping (basically anywhere that you have to hike to for a bit). Falls Lake in the Coquihalla would work, but I was thinking Davis Lake near Mission might work to, and would be less of a drive. Does anyone here know how crowded it gets?
Oh, people shoot everywhere in that area.
Though, new regulations prohibit discharge of firearms anywhere along roads in Davis lake area. So, in theory, Davis lake should be safe from stray bullets. But I don't know if these changes are actively enforced and anything changed in reality.

Davis lake is gross. I was thinking similar idea to easily hike family into and did a dayhike to it. If you have a stock jeep you can actually drive in despite "decommissioned" road. People towed a trailer with a canoe and flat-bottom boat to fish the lake. There's beer can firepits and even saw a tampon near the waters edge while eating lunch. I wouldn't consider it the most scenic either with lots of quads etc ripping around if you're into that.
