Lillooet is a popular haunt for fishing and boating enthusiasts, as there are many waterways throughout the area. Many of these locations feature campgrounds perfect for the average RVer’s immersion into nature.

Pavilion Lake
Part of Marble Canyon Provincial Park, Pavilion Lake hosts exciting activities like fishing and scuba diving. The lake’s recorded depth is 65 meters, and it is home to some of the world’s only microbialites (a type of coral-like structure believed to be one of the oldest on earth). NASA has teamed up with the University of British Columbia to study these formations, so diving is only allowed in certain areas of the lake to avoid disrupting any scientific monitoring technology.
Lillooet Farmers Market
The market runs every Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. from May to October. Fresh produce and unique handmade items are available for sale. Grass-fed B.C. beef is available biweekly.
