Default Drive in rec sites in March?

Hello ladies and gents, I'd like to go away for a night or two. Just car camping. Is there anywhere I can drive in without too much snow? I was thinking of maybe Davis lake near merritt (http://www.sitesandtrailsbc.ca/searc...RDCS&type=Site) but I have no idea how much snow there is there. Coq traffic cams show quite a bit. If this is a no go, as I imagine it is, where else can I look?

Thanks

Check out Cogburn beach

It can get busy in the summer but shouldn't be to bad in March.

West side of Harrison has over 2' of snow, does east side get plowed? Thanks for the suggestion!

Lytton Cams show not much snow in the Fraser Canyon and up towards Lillooet. But I don't know of any particular spots. Provincial campgrounds are still closed.

That's great, thanks! I was hoping to find an FSR to explore, looks like Lytton/Stein Valley might be a good candidate.

The snow level obviously changes but I was up to the 60km mark on the east side main road and to clear creek about 3 weeks ago in my Subaru.

Also FYI there is no car camping available in the Stein valley.
