      Access Info:
      Start by heading north on Batchelor Hills Drive out of Kamloops. This will turn into the Lac Du Bois Forest Service Road. Follow this for about 16.5 kilometers. Watch for logging trucks and other industrial traffic. Turn right just after the 16 km marker onto the McQueen Lake Forest Service Road.
      If you have a two-wheel drive or low-clearance vehicle, it is recommended to park near the beginning of this road, in the area beside the first big kiosk on the left and ride in from there. If snow conditions permit, you may be able to drive farther in and park at any of the additional parking areas indicated on the map.
      New for 2021!! The McQueen Lake forest service road will be plowed/cleared by Argo Road Maintenance all the way to the large parking area before Isobel Lake. However good clearance and winter tires are still recommended.
      Please leave the area near the McQueen Lake Educational Center gate and entrance to the Educational Center clear of vehicles at all times, this space is required at allow school buses to turn around.
      Disclaimer:
      PLEASE DO NOT PARK ANY VEHICLES IN THE AREA NEAR THE MCQUEEN LAKE EDUCATIONAL CENTRE'S GATE OR SCHOOL BUS TURN AROUND AREA, AT ANY TIME!
