Stave West Forest & Recreation Area

As part of Tree Farm Licence 26, the City of Mission is proud to work in collaboration with the Kwantlen First Nation, Matsqui First Nation, Leq’a:mel First Nation and the Province of British Columbia to guide the transformation of the Stave West Forest & Recreation Area into a destination for safe and friendly outdoor recreation and learning – one that co-exists with sustainably managed forestry operations.

Camp in Stave West

Over 200 campsites across four campgrounds are managed by the Province of BC – Recreation Sites and Trails.  Florence Lake Forest Service Road conditions can vary depending on weather and volume of use.

Visitors with horses or anyone looking for a campsite near the water should visit Kearsley Creek. With special corrals and amenities for equestrians as well as fantastic oversized waterfront campsites this campground is sure to become one of Stave West’s most popular sites.

If you’re hauling an ORV or travelling with a group of RVers then Rock Creek is your go-to site. With large group-sites, many pull-though campsites and a special staging area by the host this campground is purpose-built.

Rocky Point site offers sites on its shoreline of Stave Reservoir.

Sayres Lake is a more remote destination, but easily within reach and offers lakeside camping for small rvs, tent-pads, and some walk-in sites for people looking for a more secluded experience. It’s just 30 minutes but a world away from Mission or Maple Ridge.

The Stave West Forest & Recreation Area is built on a shared commitment to ongoing collaboration and respect for all involved.
