The Campground (Facilities)

 

Agur Lake Camp is BC's only wilderness retreat for people with disabilities and their families and caregivers. It is a calm oasis for rest and rejuvenation from the challenges of living with illness or a disability.

The lake is 20 km west of Summerland, in the wilderness along a well-maintained logging road. We have limited power and cell coverage. Agur Lake Camp is where you come to get away from it all.

At least one person in your party must have a disability; our campers include anyone with special needs, physical disabilities, limited mobility and seniors. Frequent guests include group homes, support groups, Special Olympics groups, families and extended families.

Please note a power and regular wheel chair is available for use for overnight and day use campers.  Please book in advance when making a reservation. 

Accommodations (More Photos of the Cabins in the Photo Gallery)

Cabins:

Agur Lake Camp has three gorgeous 1368 sq ft cabins, each sleeps 6, all are fully furnished and fully accessible and with room for the largest of wheelchairs. They have covered wrap-around porches and BBQ's situated between cabins (please do not move them to the deck).  The cabin kitchens are fully stocked with cookware, utensils, dinnerware and small appliances such as a coffee makers.  Each cabin has a selection of games, puzzles and books but please bring anything specific to play with your group.  

Grounds:

80% of the paths are paved with the remaining paths hard packed gravel.  Some of the trails can be hilly so an electric wheelchair could be useful.  If it is not possible to bring that type of chair with you, the Site Supervisors are more than happy to help you around the camp on one of the golf carts.  They can take you down to the fishing dock or picnic pavilion and pick you back up again later on.
