Rolley Lake Provincial Park is a gem of a find outisde of Mission, British Columbia, Canada. About a 45 minute drive from Vancouver proper, it is well worth the drive to experience some clean air and blue skies.
There is a picnic area, small beach, camping and even fishing on this lake. No power boats are allowed here, so it's peaceful atmosphere can totally captivate you.
There is a trail aroud the whole lake that is easily accesible for any fitness level. There is also a small waterfall on the east end of the lake that is well worth the few mintue hike through the forest to see.
This would be a great place to spend the day in the heat of the summer, or pitch a tent for some much needed get-away time from city life. I spent a few very enjoyable hours here walking the perimeter of the lake and generally doing some de-stressing and nature-bonding. Lots of critters about in the glorious almost-summer weather.
