There are three beach areas on the 108 Lake – Stewart Beach at the foot of Stewart Road on Kallum Drive, the West Beach is located just past the intersection of Kitwanga Drive and Kallum Drive at the far west end of the lake and the Main Beach access is off Telqua Drive at the bottom of the hill. There is also a parking lot on Kallum Drive at Sepa Lake with an outhouse and access to the low mobility trail around Sepa Lake.
Stewart Beach has a parking area, outhouse and is located on the trail around 108 Lake. There is access to the lake, however, it does not have a suitable swimming area.
The West Beach has a picnic area with tables, outhouses, good parking and easy access to the trails around the lake. Due to dropping lake levels over time there is no longer a swimming beach.
The Main Beach has outhouses, picnic area with tables, kid’s area, sand volleyball court, and a natural boat launch. The lake is restricted to electric boat motors only and is popular with kayakers and canoeists. The Main Beach’s access road is open from June through to the middle of September, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
A fishing dock was installed at the Main Beach in July, 2022. The dock was commissioned by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of British Columbia’s Ian McGregor and constructed and installed by New Waves Docks. The project, which cost $25,000, was funded by the sale of sport fishing licenses in B.C. 108 Mile Lake is home to several species of fish. The Society stocks the lake with rainbow trout annually.

A trail winds around both Sepa and 108 lakes, and is just under 10 km long. The public is most welcome to use — but not abuse — our trails and beaches. Although we hire an attendant, these areas are largely user-maintained. Please use the garbage cans and dog poo bags.
No motorized vehicles are allowed on the trails; they are for pedestrians and our four-legged friends. Four-leggeds must be under the complete control of their owners. Until now, we haven’t had to have a lot of detailed rules because people have generally adhered to common courtesy. However, with many more trail users, we must emphasize that greenbelt areas are not “free range.” Please do not let your pets run up to other trail users, or chase wildlife and waterfowl. Foreshore areas are especially sensitive during May and June when birds are nesting. The photo to the right captures Sepa Lake from the trail, taken by Sandy Foster
