Pye Lake is just a short drive north of Campbell river and part of a chain of unconnected lakes (Roberts, Stella, Pye and McCreight Lake) that are all well worth the visit. One can easily spend an enjoyable afternoon, or even and entire day paddling this lovely island lake. The only down side is that there are few places to pull out for a swim, a picnic or an lazy afternoon nap. Pye Lake can also be something of a party spot, particularly on weekends, in the summer.
Size: 378.3 ha | 935 ac | 3.8 km²
Direction: From Campbell River, head north on Highway 19 for not quite 38 km then turn right on to the Pye West road (gravel) and follow it for 5.5 km. You cant miss the campsite – its nestled between the road and the lake.
