Cultus Lake Park – UPDATE – JANUARY 5, 2021 – Sunnyside Campground Temporarily Inaccessible. Original work was to have started December 20 to 26 2021.
The logs and debris that collected along the foreshore to the west of the boat launch in Sunnyside Campground have now been relocated in preparation for processing.
