A road less traveledů in BC

This September we will be traveling through Revelstoke and Vernon on our return home from a trip and our plan is to take Hwy 1 and 97A for this leg. Upon looking at possible more interesting routes we find that there appears to be a road from the Three Valley Lake area to Shuswap Falls along the east side of Mabel Lake. This would give us the option of staying at Mabel Lake PP.

Is this road a viable route or one best avoided whilst towing? We find that not all maps agree on whether this route is a rough unimproved road or a maintained graded road, possibly with gravel, or if the road actually goes through at all near the north end? Also, is Mabel Lake PP and this route interesting enough to take vs the Hwy 1 and 97A option?

Another road less traveled.... trucks excepted. (One can only wonder why.)

Wow, it's an area that we're probably going to hit up big time in the Spring so I did a little looking up info.

At first blush it looks like the answer to your question is that it's a good road but the last part is well maintained gravel.

But read Trip Advisor reviews. Beautiful park but the staff and enforcement of rules.

It's one thing to read an occasional disgruntled report on a situation but when you get several saying the same thing I tend to start believing them. Don't need to butt heads with someone on a power trip.

Interesting. I was just reading TripAdvisor reviews of Otter Lake Provincial Park near Princeton. Maybe those people who complain about the hosts, complain often and at every opportunity.

Maybe, but when you read separate and individual comments about tickets being issued there may be some truth to the posts. I don't think that's the norm.
