Long Weekend Parking at Cultus Lake

August 29, 2022

Planning a trip to Cultus Lake on the Labour Day long weekend? Visitors are advised that cars parked in undesignated spots on the Columbia Valley Highway from September 3 to 5 may be towed.

RCMP, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, Fraser Valley Regional District, and the Cultus Lake Parks Board have partnered on the towing trial. Parking is prohibited on the Columbia Valley Highway as it poses a hazard to drivers and pedestrians and prevents emergency services from moving safely through the area.

Visitors to the lake are advised to park only in the designated paid parking lots located in the Cultus Lake community or limited parking at Cultus Lake Provincial Park. Signage for parking lots is located at the entrance of Cultus Lake near the roundabout.

Any cars parked illegally on Columbia Valley Highway on the long weekend may be towed by Reliable Towing to a temporary tow lot located at the Cultus Lake Community Hall (Google map). 

The yard will be monitored by Reliable Towing, and any vehicles towed will require payment to Reliable Towing from the vehicle owners at the time of retrieval. 

Paid parking is in effect year-round in all Cultus Lake Park public parking areas:

  • Lot A: West Side
  • Lot B:  Main Beach 
  • Lot C:  located at the Marina
  • Lot D: located behind the Waterpark
  • Oak Street Park
  • Plaza Day Use Parking
  • Oversized parking is available at Lot B
